Giving Update...

Today is the last day of our Summer quarter.

Summer is often a low time for giving. This Summer was no exception! We’ve had a couple extra low months that have left us with a "minus" Here are three things you can you do to help…

Pray – pray that God would touch people’s hearts to be generous givers.

Give - If you’ve fallen behind in your giving, now is the time to catch up!

Communicate - Help us communicate the importance of giving in your circle of influence.

Thanks in advance for your prayers!

Children's Offering

God asks us to give a portion of everything he provides back to him as a step of faith, and we want to share that truth with all the children. Children have an opportunity to give an offering in our children's classes. We invited parents to use this as an opportunity to share this important value with their kids.

The Transformer September 9th!

Most new years resolutions fade, most diets fail, and too many “promises” to change run out of gas. It’s one thing to have a desire to change, it’s another thing to have the power to see it through.

God has a “powered up” plan to change your life. He doesn’t just invite us to change. He gives us the power to do it. He does this by sending the Transformer.

Join us for a 4 week series on how God changes lives. Topics include:

Powering Up – Understanding Why Most Change Doesn’t Work
Looking Up – Learning Who the Transformer is and How He Works
Listening Up – Embracing the Tools of the Transformer
Filling Up – Experiencing More of the Transformer’s Power in Your Life.

Avalanche Ranch September 16th

If you would like to get involved this fall during Avalanche Ranch give us a holler.

After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken...

"After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly." Acts 4:31

We experienced that on Sunday morning! At the end of the 9:30 service, during prayer, the place where we meet "was shaken".

It's always interesting when God shakes things up. Apparently this shaking orginated from an earthquake near the 15 fwy and Indian Truck trail.

Let's pray that the second half of the verse is also true - that we are filled with the Holy Spirit and speak the word of God boldly!
