NEW SERIES BEGINS SUNDAY!

“YOU IN FIVE YEARS”

january 5 – february 2, 2020

Ready to trash your New Year’s Resolutions?

We live in a society with lots of “Starters” but not many “Finishers”. Recent studies suggest 92% of New Year’s resolutions fail. Those are not encouraging numbers. If you’re already tanking on your commitments for 2020 you’re probably beating yourself up thinking you should have tried harder, gotten up earlier, went to bed later, or drank more creamed vegetables from your blender.  You’re wishing you would have hired a life coach,  eaten more superfoods, or joined the “No judgement gym”. Now you’re feeling bad about yourself all over again as you Google the return policy for your Peloton exercise bike. 

You might be surprised learn your greatest obstacles in not being able to finish what you start are not your lack of discipline or laziness. Rather it is unexpected things like perfectionism, impatience, distractions, not tracking or celebrating your progress, and even the wrong goals in the first place. 

Here’s some encouraging news for you. God has a better plan for your future. He wants you to choose the right goals for the right reasons. He wants to you to walk with him through change at a slower pace doing smaller things which, in the end, are better for you and accomplish even more than you planned. Can you imagine God giving you permission to cut your goals in half or to give yourself more time to accomplish your dreams? Can you hear God say, it’s OK to pat yourself on the back a little for accomplishing small, seemingly insignificant, goals in the direction of bigger ones? 

Join us this Sunday as we continue our series, “You in Five Years” with a message called, Too Small to Fail. Together we’ll learn how God often does his greatest work “little by little” and we’ll share five secrets to help you partner with God to hit your long term goals out of the park. 

You have friends and family members who need this message so invite them. If they hesitate, tell them we’re planning another scientific experiment involving an explosion…or that you’ll take them out for brunch/lunch afterwards. Whatever works for you.

COFFEE

Grab a good cup of free coffee (or cold beverage) before the service and bring it in with you. There’s just something about hanging out together with a cup in your hand that makes it better!

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED

Don’t be surprised if you see clips from your favorite movies or television shows, hear a personal story from a person just like you. You’ll always find something unexpected like crowd interaction, comedy, clever object lessons or creative lighting, effects and media because we believe church should be fun to attend and be engaging!

RELEVANT MESSAGES

Together, we learn about things like: relationships, work, finances, power over addictions, forgiveness, life change through Jesus and yes…even sex! Every week our “talks” are creative, down to earth, funny and memorable and they’ll make a real difference in your life.

KIDS AND TEENS

Your kids and teenagers will also discover stuff that applies to their everyday lives. Creative videos, music they love and they’ll meet real people who care and want to help them find their way through life with God and one another. There’s even a safe & caring nursery for the littlest ones because we want you to be able to enjoy the morning distraction free and we want them to learn the church can be fun for them as well!

MUSIC YOU’LL ENJOY

Our live band plays a mix of high-energy pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop & gospel as well as reflective tunes that you’ll want to hum all week long. Many weeks they’ll even cover a tune you’d hear on the radio to get you thinking about the topic of the day.

COME AS YOU ARE

We don’t have a dress code. We don’t speak in holy jargon that only Christians understand. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. No matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find others just like you.
NO MATTER WHERE YOU’VE BEEN OR WHO YOU ARE, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE.
