It was graduate Sunday! What a great group of 13 grads we have this year! This is the graduating class that includes the very first sixth graders in our church. I am so proud of each one of them and their confidence in their relationship with Jesus.
Get your kids in church. As parents, it’s our job to lead our kids and establish a framework for being a part of the body of Christ. Thank you to Vanessa and Kim who pour their lives into growing our kids.
I am loving the sermons in the Protect and Serve series. Bottom line: our lives are to be an example of Jesus – both in leading and serving. It is a monumental challenge for all of us, but exactly what we should be striving for. Do you want to be well known or worth knowing?
The other part of this series that I think is profound is to be aware and careful WHO you follow. People put spiritual and emotional trust in others who are not healthy. We are responsible to find people to follow who are following Christ.
Do you need to be baptized? If you have decided to follow Christ and haven’t done that yet, it’s time. The Bible doesn’t reserve baptism for people who are perfect, but rather it is one of the INITIAL symbols of change. Messy people need to get baptized, so don’t wait until you have it all together. (P.S. You’ll never have it all together…) Sign up HERE for our next baptism on June 30.
How’s your Bible reading going? Here’s my challenge for you: Read a chapter a day for the next month. You can find some great reading plans at www.youversion.com if you don’t know where to start reading. And don’t worry about it if you don’t understand what you are reading. You might not at first, but if you keep reading, it will get clearer and clearer. That is the beauty of the Bible…God reveals Himself to you at the time and rate that He needs to grow your life. Give Him the opportunity to do just that.
Jesus changes lives. Invite someone to church so they can learn about Him and have their lives changed as well.
Congrats to the Ericson Family on the birth of Aubree! We love all of the new life at North Creek! We also got to have baby Emilia in church for the first time this weekend as well. So beautiful!
I love God’s Church. It’s not timid. It’s not lazy. It’s not irrelevant. It’s a force to be reckoned with and it changes the landscape of both our country and the world. Be weary of allowing yourself to believe anything but that. God’s Word says His Church cannot be stopped. Period.
On that note…YOU can’t be stopped either if you are in line with God’s plan. Be obedient. Be humble. Be unstoppable.
