Hi Friends,

This week we’ll be talking about Changing How We Think.  Our passage will be Luke 13:1-9, and I encourage you to read it ahead of time.  In our passage, Jesus calls His audience to repentance; and, the simple definition of repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of heart and action.  We all know from experience that this is a lot easier said than done!  The challenge is always in the area of implementation/application. But, we’ll discuss some practical biblical principles that will help us in this regard.
I hope that you’ll make plans to join us at either our 9 am or 10:30 am service.  Bring your friends and use lunch afterward as an opportunity to process the morning.
I look forward to seeing you,

Bob

“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace” – Romans 8:6. I feel like so often, when we think of repentance, it has almost a negative connotation to it. But if we truly believe the words of Romans 8:6, there is nothing negative about repenting. It brings us life and peace when we allow God’s spirit to control our minds instead of our sinful nature! Let’s check our hearts this week and acknowledge any areas in our life that are leading to death and allow God’s spirit to intervene.

High School / Middle School

We have a begun a brand new film series through Rightnow Media called “Nua” that encourages questions, acknowledges doubt, and offers an engaging perspective on the Christian faith.

The goal is to equip students with the ability to intelligently explore and understand what they believe. As Christians, we need to be able to articulate our worldview with credibility and confidence, while still being able to wrestle with the doubts and questions we have ourselves. I hope everyone can join us for this great series!

Next up, we look at “Jesus: Fact or Fiction”

If you are interested in following along and watching the film series yourself, please do! Below is the link. You will need a RightNow Media account to access this series. If you don’t have an account yet, please let me know and we will get you one!

Also, remember that our Empower program for parents continues this Wednesday, 10/3, from 6:30 – 8 pm. This program is designed for middle school and high school parents to equip you with the tools of what it looks like to continue to raise your kids in ways that honor and glorify God. Hope you can make it, and please be praying through who you can invite with you to come!
