Monday's Mentions....10/15/12

It's Monday and it's time to give a shout out to those who are seeking to be "rooted in God's love." When we set out to create the "rooted in God's love" initiative, we wanted to set before you a clear, practical, and measurable plan for each of us (ourselves included) to grow to become who God created us to be.

The Psalmist wrote: For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. (Psalm 139:13 NIV84)

He designed us for great things to make His name great, to make His name known before all peoples all over the world. For some, becoming "rooted" means doing something that the world sees as "a big deal," but for others it may simply be an act of obedience in something that we are currently being disobedient.

So, today I am not "mentioning" a particular person, but instead asking you a question...where are you presently disobedient to God? Are you learning to be obedient in Study, Prayer, Stewardship, Discipleship, Community, and Service?

I was reminded in our small group last night that we all need people who we will allow to speak truth into our lives, no matter how painful. For many of us, this can be difficult to accept, but it is critical for each of us if we want to make it from where we are to where God wants us to go.

Our church staff and leadership hope that you are taking advantage of some of the many opportunities we are seeking to create as steps for you in your journey.

Wednesday nights, for adults, is Deeper Life. We hope to offer groups that will meet you where you are. So far this semester we have offered General Bible studies for you to grow as you understand the greater context of God's Word, Cliffs Notes: An overview of the Bible, and a one-night seminar about technology and how to help your family navigate the challenges of it.

This Wednesday we begin a new 4-week series called: Married People. During these four weeks we will delve into 4 Core Habits of Healthy Marriage. Can't make it on Wednesday night? Join us for the "encore" class that will meet in The Loft on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour. If you have questions, contact the church office.

Have a blessed week!
