main image

We were all created for RELATIONSHIP! (But let’s face it…) Sometimes (Often Times) RELATIONSHIPS can get MESSY! They can create tension and difficulty in many areas of our lives! (They can literally SUCK THE LIFE out of us at times!) So if that’s the case… HOW IN THE WORLD DO WE WORK TOWARDS MAKING THEM RIGHT? (Well…) We’re gonna take a look these next Three Weeks at just that… as we dive into a New Series here at COC called HOW TO HUG A VAMPIRE! This series could literally be LIFE-CHANGING and RELATIONSHIP-CHANGING for YOU! Please consider joining us…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) WE ALL SUCK!

 

Romans 12:18... IF IT IS POSSIBLE… as far as it depends on YOU - live at PEACE with EVERYONE!

 

LOVING the PEOPLE who SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF YOU starts with realizing HOW MUCH “YOU” SUCK TOO!

 

BEFORE you can begin to LOVE the PEOPLEwho SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF YOU… you’ve got to DEFINE your OWN PROPERTY LINES!

 

YOU can give UN-RESTRICTED LOVE without giving UN-RESTRICTED ACCESS to EVERYBODY! (BOUNDARIES ARE BIBLICAL!)

 

GOD’S COMMAND for you to LOVE EVERYONE is not PERMISSION for you to MISMANAGE the INVESTMENT that HE’S PUT INSIDE OF YOU!

 

LOVING PEOPLE EQUALLY DOESN’T MEAN GRANTING THEM EQUAL ACCESS! (Always Remember… BOUNDARIES ARE BIBLICAL!)

 

 

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

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (O“BE”DIENT - 3)

main image

OBEDIENCE! We love it in other people… just not so much for ourselves! We want our kids to OBEY we train our dogs to OBEY... but when it is OUR TURN to OBEY - our first reaction is to say… “You’re not the boss of me!” We don’t want someone else to take away our freedom! Jesus tells us that when it comes to OBEYING GOD - we don’t really lose our freedom… we actually gain His Love! (So…) If you want a deeper experience of God’s Love for You - then please consider joining us the Last Weekas we once again discover a few things on BEcoming the Heart - Hands and Voice of Jesus – in our current series we’re calling O“BE”DIENT! We’ll see you Sunday!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (3) BE His Voice (Pastor Ben Gores)

 

Jesus HEALS our Brokenness – so we can FIGHT for the Broken!

 

“If you think you are too small to make a difference try sleeping in a small room with a mosquito!” (Justin Wren)

 

“Prayer is simply talking to God about what it is we're doing together!” (Dallas Willard)

 

The Good News that Jesus preaches isn’t just for some day when you die – the Good NewsJesus preaches starts RIGHT HERE and RIGHT NOW!

 

Jesus always moves TOWARD the MESS! If you want to Follow Jesus you have Join JesusIN THE MESS!

 

Living a Self-Centered Life is like Eating JunkFood… it Feels Good for a Minute – but it never produces the RESULTS YOU WANT!

 

 

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