ARCHIVE September, 2011

Go see Courageous this weekend!

This weekend we’re encouraging everyone at our church to go and see Courageous, the new movie from the producers of Facing the Giants & Fireproof.

It’s important to support the film on opening weekend

The longevity of a film in theaters is closely associated with it’s performance on opening weekend. If it does well, it gets to stay. If it does poorly, it is replaced by a higher grossing film, probably one that’s been in theaters for a while. And, the longer the film is in theaters the broader its impact. It will reach more people with the message of the Gospel if it is well-supported by people of faith. If we don’t support faith-based movies like this, fewer will be made. If we will support movies such as this, the movie studios will finance more. It’s as simple as that.


Come see the film with us this Sunday at 4:15

Free childcare will be provided at the church from 3:45-7:45 by the great people who are part of our AWANA team.


Please use the event as an outreach opportunity

Invite some friends to go with you.

Here’s the trailer for the film

See you this weekend at the movies!

P.S. – We are giving away more free tickets to the film this Sunday morning!

Life Is Too Short

Life is too short… to work at a job you hate, to do work that doesn’t matter, to do things that are not fulfilling, and to miss out on doing something big for God!

James 4:14 teaches us that “life is a vapor;” it appears for a little while and then vanishes away. We need to take advantage of the time that God has given us.

We need to be doing things that excite us and challenge us.  When someone asks us, “What are you involved in?”  Our excitement about our pursuits and passions should just flow from within us.

This week, Seth Godin share a few thoughts about being asked the question…

What are you working on?

If someone asks you that, are you excited to tell them the answer?

I hope so. If not, you’re wasting away.

No matter what your job is, no matter where you work, there’s a way to create a project (on your own, on weekends if necessary), where the excitement is palpable, where something that might make a difference is right around the corner.

Hurry, go do that.

The point is, life is just too short not to do something that you find enjoyable and fulfilling.  Maybe it’s time to make some changes.  The new year is coming…it’s a perfect opportunity to change things up and do something important.
