4th Sunday Fellowship (Nov. 28): Pizza Inn


Posted Wednesday, November 24, 2010 at 10:01 AM

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.

NOTE: If you have any suggestions of where we can meet in the future (i.e. enough high chairs and space), we'd be happy to hear them. Just leave a comment on this post.

This Sunday - JOY


Posted at 9:45 AM

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Hopefully you can join us this Sunday as we are encouraged by the joy that comes from Jesus birth, "the dawn of redeeming grace". Otherwise, enjoy your time of Thanksgiving with family friends.

This Sunday: A Savior is Born (Hope and Peace)

"And the angel answered and said to her [Mary], 'The Holy Spirit will come
upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also,
that Holy One who is to be born will be calle the Son of God.' "
What?! It's only November and we're talking about Christmas! Yep, that's right. With the way our church holiday calendar falls, it doesn't allow us to spend a lot of time for us to take a look at the birth of Savior. So we'll spend the next two weeks trying to "cram" a few devotions surrounding the birth of Jesus. This week, we'll examine aspects of hope and peace.
Hope to see you there...

This Sunday: A Work Day

Heads up!

We will be doing things a little bit differently this week. Instead of watching a video or having teaching, we will be using our time on applying the guidance that received from this most recent series, "Discovering God's Will" by Andy Stanley. We'll have a study guide to work through in writing down a vision that God may have already given or not. I hope it the study proves useful and fruitful.

Hope to see you there!

Also, if you need a little bit of a refresher from the series, the podcasts are listed HERE.

This Sunday: This One Thing

So we've reached the end of another study. What have we learned? Hopefully we've realized that God has a context for us to discern His will in making personal decisions (somewhere between His providential will and His moral will). Additionally, we were encouraged to seek wise counsel when approaching decision making and to know and understand the principles of how God thinks through the searching the Scriptures. Lastly, the challenge for us all is to pray about and write down a vision for each aspect of our life (family, financial, spiritual, etc.) so that we have a specific direction to aid us in making a decision.

This week we'll be challenged further along having a vision for our lives, and we'll be challenged through an excerpt from Nehemiah's life to be able to say "no" with purpose.

Hope to see you there...
