We have had a great month going through the series Gifts! (By the way you can listen to the messages on iTunes (subscribe to our podcasts) or at our website )

Week one we talked about God has created you to be unique. We are supposed to be different. 

Week two we looked at the various natural gifts that God has given us. You can read
Exodus 26-31. I would encourage you to read those 6 chapter and write down how many different natural gifts & skills it took to build the Tabernacle. You can also read Romans 12:6-8.
God has given you a natural gift. 

Week 3 we looked at supernatural (Spiritual) gifts. You can read about them in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11. We talked about how we want to be a church that is supernatural but not strange. (Thank you Pastor Hubbard for that quote. That helped encapsulate my entire sermon in one phrase)

If you haven't taken advantage of the "Let us Help You Open Your Gifts This Christmas" campaign, I encourage you to so. This weekend is the last chance to turn in a gift certificate and get a free Strength Finders 2.0 book

Let us help you open your GIFTS this Christmas

We kicked off our NEW series GIfts this past Sunday. (By the way you can listen to the message on iTunes or at our website )

We looked at God's Word and how He has created every single one of us to be unique. 

Tired of feeling insecure? Tired of comparing yourself to others and battle pride or insecurity? Tired of feeling like you were given the short end of the stick when God created you. Open God's Word and follow us on this journey as we discover that God has given us the gift of uniqueness!! We all have been give natural gifts and have the potential to operate in supernatural gifts. It's going to be a fun month as we open up our GIFTS. 

(BTW: if you come this month we have a special GIFT for you)

Further Reading & Study:

Psalm 139
Genesis 1

1 Corinthians 12:12-18

Spiritual HUB

Last month series "Family Ties" was a series that we can revisit and listen to time and time again (By the way you can on iTunes or at our website )

God designed the family to be the main environment where spiritual growth happens. From learning how to pray, worship and developing a missional heart, the family is the spiritual hub for growth. 

We tried to give practical resources and support all month to empower parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles to be empowered to lead their families. You can be a spiritual leader in your family. You can show your family who God is and be His hands and feet! Keep growing and learning and don't give up!  

PS. The family adventure is something you can do often with your own family. Better yet get together with another family and do your own family adventure :)
