CELEBRATORS… This week is our RESPECTABLE SINS Last Week! We’ve saved the BEST for LAST...The SIN we LOVE to TOLERATE the MOST... CHOOSING OUR WORDS WISELY! You’re also in for a treat this particular week as our Celebration Youth INVADE our Weekend Services!

It’s a special week to see WHAT our Youth Ministries are all about and what THEY are doing for the Kingdom! Don't Miss This Weekend Celebrators!
Below is a sneak-peak of our first week… (3) Choosing Our Words Wisely
Check out James 3:3-10 sometime soon... If you can actually hear/read that passage and not be CONVICTED - you weren’t LISTENING! -- "TAME YOUR TONGUE!"
The “QUICK... SLOW... SLOW...” Principle (James 1:19) - We could ALL do a little better at LISTENING LONGER!
BRAGGING MORE ABOUT JESUS... WHO HE IS and WHAT HE’S DONE or is DOING IN OUR LIVES – leaves us a little less time to BRAG ON OURSELVES!
CRITICIZE WISELY... REALIZE from the ‘Get Go’ – YOU always need to be a part of the SOLUTION to WHOMEVER it is that you’re CRITICIZING!
Check out Ephesians 4:29… Let your words always be a GIFT OF GRACE… to those who LISTEN!
DO SOMETHING about your "RESPECTABLE SINS" TODAY… God cares more about what you're going to do TOMORROW than what you did YESTERDAY!
