(5) Crossing The Finish Line (Duncan Robinson)

CELEBRATORS… Last week of our RELEASE Series – (5) Crossing The Finish Line! You don’t want to miss this coming Sunday at COC – not only will we be finishing up this incredible series but it will be your LAST SUNDAY to hear Pastor Duncan Robinson Preach! It’s been an absolute BLESSING to have Duncan and Carly on the COC Ministries Team for the past several years! We’ve grown to LOVE them dearly and can’t wait to see what God is gonna do through them in their Church Plant back in Australia!

We’ll also be saying farewell to them in a formal way on Sunday, February 10th at Honeycutt Coffee from 1-3p! The Coffee is FREE and Specialty Drinks can also be purchased! Make sure you plan to drop by and give ‘em a hug/card and say farewell! For those who might not be able to make that personal farewell – we also are planning a Sending Service Prayer Time for them the Sat/Sun of Apr 27/28!

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas that Pastor Duncan will be sharing…

You have Perfect Assurance - you have Perpetual Access to a Living Savior and you have a Present Responsibility to CROSS THE FINISH LINE!

Five Lies that keep you from CROSSING THE FINISH LINE well…

Lie 1: Salvation is enough to keep me strong!

Lie 2: Emotion will sustain Devotion!

Lie 3: The More I know - the Less I sin!

Lie 4: I need to make more promises!

Inward Confidence always leads to Outward Courage!

Three Roadblocks that will stop you from Crossing The Line Strong

Misunderstandings - Difficult Circumstances - Bad Church Experiences

(Make the adjustments now!)

 

See You Sunday… Celebrators!! 

(Sun) MHS Performing Arts Center – 9A

(4) Taking The Next Step

CELEBRATORS… Don’t Forget!! Our NEXT PREVIEW Service is this SATURDAY NIGHT (Jan 26) – 5P (Pathway) – Do EVERYTHING you can to INVITE SOMEONE with you!! Trust me… YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT!

We’ll be continuing our RELEASE! (Breaking Free From Normalcy) Series this coming weekend too! This particular week we’ll be talking about TAKING THE NEXT STEP! We’ll attempt at dispelling the MYTH that GOD WON’T GIVE YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE! You can’t miss it!

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

False Idea...GOD WILL NEVER GIVE U MORE THAN U CAN HANDLE! (2 Cor 1:8-10) Promise though...If God has LED you TO it - He will LEAD you THROUGH it!

CHRISTIANITY is not so much about WHAT WE’VE DONE but rather WHO WE ARE BECOMING! (You CANNOT FOLLOW JESUS and STAY THE SAME!)

Don't use PRAYER for an excuse for INACTIVITY!

Many Christians would rather PRAY than OBEY

DISOBEDIENCE... WHY would GOD TRUST US with WHAT’S NEXT if we aren’t OBEDIENT with WHAT HE’S SHOWING US NOW?

Stop Waiting around to DO what He's Called you to DO!

PROCRASTINATION is ASSASSINATION on the AMAZING FUTURE GOD HAS FOR YOU!

DAILY… A Christian SURRENDERS TO JESUS - then SUBMITS TO JESUSONE STEP AT A TIME! Trusting this... HE’S GOING TO MAKE US WHO WE NEED TO BE!

See You Saturday and/or Sunday… Celebrators!!
