(3) Moving On… To Triumph Over Tragedy

CELEBRATORS… Our first Saturday PM Preview Service last Saturday Night (12th) was nothing short of AMAZING! We had 204 PEOPLE come Worship with us! I can’t believe I’m saying this – but we are only 75 or so people away (ALREADY) from having to consider a 2nd Saturday PM Service – and that – after just ONE PREVIEW SERVICE! I think God is up to something here folks…! Mark your calendar NOW for our NEXT PREVIEW Service - SATURDAY NIGHT (Jan 26) – 5P (Pathway) – Do EVERYTHING you can to INVITE SOMEONE with you!!

We are now heading into our third week of the RELEASE! (Breaking Free From Normalcy) Series! This coming week is one - you just CANNOT MISS! We will be talking about FORGIVENESS (No Matter What!) and WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE! A couple topics we ALL could use some guidance and freedom with!

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas…

FORGIVENESS Truth... FORGIVEN PEOPLE... FORGIVE PEOPLE! (Period.)

Matthew 6:9-15... (Remember!)

There's a PRICE TO PAY for and UNFORGIVING HEART!

Matthew 18:22…(Jesus’ response to Peter on Complete Forgiveness!)

“No! Don’t forgive just Seven Times! But SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN!”

Not only should you COMPLETELY FORGIVE – you should CONTINUALLY FORGIVE!

BAD THINGS happening/happened in your life? (Ask yourself this…)

Are WE to allow the CIRCUMSTANCES in our lives to determine our BELIEF IN GOD… or are WE going to allow our BELIEF IN GOD TO REIGN OVER OUR CIRCUMSTANCES?

BAD THINGS happening/happened in your life? (Ask yourself this…)

Ever thought maybe GOD uses PAIN in our LIVES to bring our ATTENTION to something that needs to be REMOVED FROM OUR LIVES!?

BAD THINGS DO HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE! (Fact.)

When it happened to David and his sheep watching - he went after the Bear/Lion and PUNCHED IT IN THE FACE!

Next time something BAD HAPPENS in your life... LEAVE THE SHEEP PEN and remember that it's probably not God PUNISHING YOU but rather Him PREPARING YOU!

See You Sunday… Celebrators!!

(2) Moving Past Your Past

CELEBRATORS… It’s Here! It’s Here! Our first Saturday PM Preview Service is TOMMOROW NIGHT (Jan 12) – 5P (Pathway) – Do EVERYTHING you can to either ATTEND ONE and SERVE in the other -- Sundays (PAC/9A) or Saturdays (Pathway/5P)

In case you missed it last week – we started a brand new series called RELEASE! (Breaking Free From Normalcy)… moving into our second week this week and bringing a topic that you simply CANNOT MISS – MOVING PAST YOUR PAST! This idea is one of FREEDOM that ALL people need to hear!  Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas!

If you don't let your PAST DIE – then IT won't let YOU LIVE! (Period.)

YOU ARE FORGIVEN!

Before Time… He knew what you would DO and what your SIN would COST HIM! BUT… HE CHOSE TO SAVE YOU ANYWAY!

You are of GREAT VALUE to God! (How do I know?)

Before you know the VALUE of something you have to know what someone is willing to PAY FOR IT! (God Paid a HIGH PRICE for YOU… HIS ONLY SON - JESUS!)

God's LOVE for YOUIS NOT and NEVER WILL BE based on your PAST - but only on your POSITION… as HIS CHILD!

You may not always be the person you NEED TO BE - but know for sure (if you’ve been Born-Again) that you are NOT the person you USED TO BE! (That’s Called GRACE!)

GOD hasn’t called us to MAKE EXCUSES… He’s called us to MAKE A DIFFERENCE! And PEOPLE who MAKE EXCUSES… can’t MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

See You Saturday AND/OR Sunday… Celebrators!!
