“I’d Like You More If You Were More Like Me!” (Admit it… We have all thought that a time or two in life!) It’s because we ALL want meaningful relationships in our lives with people who are similar to us… don’t we? (But…) Sometimes we struggle to find those life giving relationships that other people seem to always have! (SPOILER ALERT) The Solution to finding those Deep/Meaningful and Life Changing type of RELATIONSHIPS – is NOT found in trying to make other people more like you! The answer is actually found in allowing God to use the people in your life to shape YOU into the better version of the YOU that He created you to be! (The bottom-line is…) WE WERE MADE FOR RELATIONSHIP! (So…) Because this idea is so vital to our existence – we’ll be continuing the next Four Weeks - going on a journey together here at COC - helping you go a little deeper in your Current Relationships and possibly help you find a few more that you never knew were available – in our current series called… I’D LIKE YOU MORE IF YOU WERE MORE LIKE ME! Please consider joining us…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (2) CREATED FOR CONNECTION

 

We are living in a world where things are NOT THE WAY IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE! (So...) What are YOU (Jesus Follower) doing about it?(SHALOM)

 

If you don’t understand SHALOM… you'll never understand SIN!

 

The measure of WHAT is happening INSIDE the CHURCH... is really gauged by WHAT is happening OUTSIDE the CHURCH! (I think WE (BRIDE) need to PICK UP OUR GAME!)

 

To BE a JESUS FOLLOWER… is to BE an AGENT OF SHALOM! SHALOM is not just something that YOU WANT TO RECEIVE… but something YOU ARE ALSO CALLED TO GIVE!

 

One of the problems today isn’t that people need to be more PROTECTED from DEATH… they need to be more CONNECTED to LIFE!

 

JESUSTHE "SHALOM" BRINGER has Called/Commissioned/Commanded and Equipped YOU... to bring His Love/Shalom to those around you! (You need to always remember that SOMEBODY IS WAITING FOR YOU TO DO THAT RIGHT NOW!)

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)

Sunday Snapshot… (1) THE TABLE (Ben Gores)

 

There’s always room for you at THE TABLE!

 

Your Past isn’t Your Past if it’s still impacting Your Present!

 

Brene Brown“VULNERABILITY is the birthplace of Love / Belonging / Joy / Courage / Empathy and Creativity! It is the source of Hope / Accountability and Authenticity! If you want greater clarity in your purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives - then  VULNERABILITY is the path to take!”

 

You can’t have a Relationship without Commitment!

 

The best way to invest your 24/7 is to focus on the IMPORTANT over the URGENT!

 

Richard Rohr… “If you don’t allow God to transform your pain - you will find a way to transfer your pain yourself!”
