What If....week 3


Posted Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 8:10 PM

What If....we failed? I got to be honest, this is a tough one to prepare and teach. What if we fail or have failed? We have to look at ourselves in light of what the Scriptures teach and let it shine through to our issues. We are all broken and at least have that in common but all broken in different ways. This week we will look at how we have failed and how that affects our relationships both with Christ and one another. We will see how or if it still affects us today. Though as we heard last week in the Worship service, we must "reclaim hope" and hope does exist and always will no matter how far we have fallen. See you Sunday.

What if we were honest

Do you have someone you go to who keeps you pointed towards Christ? Is it your spouse, your father or mother? This week we will look at this and more on how we can be honest with one another and take off the masks. Prayerfully consider sharing a "mask" you are wearing if you are, and ready to hear one shared. See you Sunday.

What If?

What if....is a series of lessons on life groups and how they function. What is the purpose of our life group? Does being in a life group really change anything in my life? This and many more questions will be attempted to be answered during our next 4 weeks together.
What if...we cared?
What if...we were honest?
What if...we failed?
What if...we got of the couch?

This first week the question that comes is "what if we cared?" Honestly from my view I think we do just fine showing that we do care for one another but are we doing enough? Are we really showing we care for one another? Come this first week to look at this together and discover if we can do better.
See you this Sunday.

4th Sunday Fellowship (Aug 22) - Lone Star BBQ


Posted Wednesday, August 18, 2010 at 5:55 PM

As a life group, we are designating the fourth Sunday of each month to meet and eat for lunch after church. You don't have to make a reservation, but we will coordinate a casual restaurant (with plenty of high chairs) where you order when you get there, sit, eat, and can feel free to move around and visit the different people who come.

This Sunday: Lone Star BBQ

NOTE: If you have any suggestions of where we can meet in the future, we'd be happy to hear them. Just leave a comment on this post.

This Sunday: True Contentment


Posted Monday, August 9, 2010 at 5:11 AM

[Philippians 4:11-23]

How quickly can we get something new and it satisfies and we find contentment, yet that new thing grows old quickly. It's how our culture works: new things become old things quickly.

How easily we become discontent in a society that has everything.

Not Paul...

This Sunday: Polar Opposites

[Philippians 4:10-13]

"for better, or for worse,
for richer or for poorer,
In sickness and in health."

Lovely sentiments spoken at weddings...or at least my wedding. I don't know if I understood (or understand still) the meaning of those words and extremes of either perspective. I mean, I remember thinking, "Times won't always be 'better', but there will definitely be more 'better' times than 'worse'," or, "I know we won't be the richest, but surely we won't be poor." And in all likelihood, very few of us will go through prolonged periods of either extreme.

Even though we will most likely not go through extreme lows and highs, it doesn't mean that we can't learn from somone who did. This week, we'll be challenged by Paul's word's again in a letter to the church at Philippi, and one can argue that Paul definitely is someone who experienced extreme highs and lows in his walk with Christ.
