Scripture: Luke 9:57-62

Imagine a couple on their wedding day. The church is decorated beautifully, the ceremony is proceeding wonderfully. But when the Groom states his vows to his Bride, he concludes by saying: “I promise to be faithful to you 75% of the time – which you have to admit, is a pretty decent percentage.” How would you respond if you were that Bride?  You’d probably want to deck him, right? Why? Because when a Bride and Groom are pledging themselves to one another, the expectation is that they would each be 100% committed to one another. Even a 95% commitment is 5% short.

The same is true when it comes to our commitment to Christ. And yet, our culture seems to have an aversion to commitment. We like to keep our options open. We prefer to sign in pencil rather than in ink.  Join us this weekend as we take a look at what it means to be all in for Jesus – the One who went all in for us.

Scripture: Romans 12:1-8

My Church! 

JFK boldly challenged the American people with the proclamation: “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

Romans 12 reminds us not to buy into the patterns of our culture but, rather, to be continually transformed by renewing how we think and act. Let us align our thoughts and actions with Christ and his Kingdom values! I pray for a transformation in our hearts and minds so that we can can ask what we can do for our church family, not what our church family can do for us. This requires stepping out of a culture that puts the words "church" and "shopping" together and stepping into a journey that Transforms how we invest, invite, and inspire those around us to be more like Jesus. 

This is My (our!) Church! Together we can Invest in it, Invite others to it and Inspire others to participate in our Transforming Journey. I can't wait for you to join us in worship this weekend!
