Satisfied?

Edmund Brooks

The New Year is here, which means the glow and the hype of the holidays are soon fading, but are we loosing the joy that Christ has given us too? Our Christmas toys and gadgets are seeming less and less special each day - they are loosing their luster, but is our satisfaction in the Lord standing strong, or is it on idol things? Let us refocus our satisfaction and joy in the gifts of our Savior this New Year.

THE FOCUSED LIFE - Giving

Randy ChristianTHE FOCUSED LIFE
“Giving”
November 9, 2008

The primary form of worship for thousands of years was the presentation of sacrifices and offerings to God. When Jesus came to be “The Sacrifice”, the sacrificial system was fulfilled and done away with. Offerings remain as part of our church life. We offer him our time, our energy, our ability—and yes, our money. But not as part of “church business”—as worship to the one who gave us all we have. Join us as we focus on how giving draws us closer to the Lord.

THE FOCUSED LIFE - Service

“Service”
November 2, 2008

Imagine Jesus devoted to his own pleasure, his own preferences, his own desires. His time spent furthering himself, satisfying himself, and his attention to others a tool to gain his own way. It is impossible to imagine. Jesus was wholly devoted to doing the will of his Father, and to loving others. To be like Jesus is to be focused on God, and on serving others in His name. Join us as we explore the practical implications of service!

October 26, 2008

“Study” is a word many of us don’t like! Most Christians claim to believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Yet many of us are content to let others tell us what it says. We agree or disagree according to our own thoughts—but too often without actually searching the scriptures to see if what we are told us true. Is Bible Study really something each of us can—and should—do? Join us as we look to the Word to learn about looking to the Word!

Worship is as old as our relationship with God. The way we do might change, but what it is doesn’t. We can learn from the worship of the ancients, but we have to make it our own. Join us as we explore the meaning of worship—as a congregation and as individuals—and experience worship of our God!

THE FOCUSED LIFE-Introduction

“Introduction”
October 5, 2008

To “focus” is to make something clear. To bring something into focus is not only to clarify, but to insure that the object of focus stands out among other objects. So, what is a “focused life”? A life is focused when the object of that life is clear, and is not lost among others. In “The Focused Life” series we explore how to bring our relationship with the Lord into clarity—as individuals and as a congregation.
