Prayer Focus of the Week: Sharing Jesus with Others

Scripture Reading: Philippians 2:1-5 (ESV):

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus

Advent & Christmas Eve Service – In the holiday season, we have a unique dichotomy that exists. Here is a season that should be marked by thanksgiving, joy, generosity, appreciation, and love. At the same time, our calendars become overrun with holiday events and activities, our time is spent shopping and spending, and our focus is often on trying to keep our head above water…waiting for things to finally come to an end. This sparks a new sermon series that directs our hearts and minds to the way we should be living as followers of Jesus. Particularly, our attitude toward God and toward others in the advent season. Advent is a time of waiting and expecting. We must wait in anticipation of Jesus’ return with purpose and intentionality. Hence the title of our series: “Waiting with Purpose”. The series culminates with a special Christmas Eve service on December 24th @ 5pm. This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family!

Life Groups – Our Life Groups are on a break for the holidays and will resume in mid-January.

Fight Clubs are same-gender groups of about three people encouraging each other to live a life aligned with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The ultimate goal is to love Jesus more, through our affection for him and our allegiance to him, by helping each other rehearse the gospel and fight sin. Fight Clubs strive to meet at least twice a month for an intentional, focused time devoted to the routines below. For more information or to sign up contact:
