Depression is a REAL struggle that REAL people go through! And the answer isn’t to pray the sadness away, or to be a better Christian, or to look like you have everything together! Heaven knows… We don’t need a temporary fix or to “just be happy”- we need a REAL Savior and Solution to our PAIN! And it’s important to know that IN CHRIST… You are not rejected because of your Depression - God rescues you and carries you through it! He’s willing a ready to turn your MESS into a MIRACLE… if you would be willing to allow Him to! Do whatever it takes to NOT MISS any of the remaining weeks of our New Series called… THE WALKING DEAD! Pastor Ben and Pastor Mat will continue to share with you specifically how you can ‘Overcome being Overwhelmed’ in the Anxiety-Filled and Depression-Defeating areas of your life!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk4) What Have I Gotten Myself Into?

 

No matter WHAT you're going through… Jesus knows EVERY PART of YOUR STORY… and the Good/Bad/Ugly is ALL a PART of HIS GREATER STORY!

 

JESUS knows EVERY DETAIL of YOUR STORM! (So stop worrying about it!)

 

JESUS has the ABILITY to CALM THE STORM… but He also has the AUTHORITY to do it in HIS TIME!

 

YOU may take my eyes off of JESUS… but He never takes His eyes off of YOU!

 

Jesus may not be FIXING YOUR STORM right now… but know that He is SPEAKING TO YOUIN YOUR STORM! (Question is… ARE YOU LISTENING?)

 

I'd rather be ON A BOATIN A STORM… with JESUS - than STANDING ON THE SHOREWITHOUT HIM!

 

 

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

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (Bailout - 4)

CELEBRATORS…

In a world that sees one corporation after the next crumbling… a National Debt that keeps rising… and you not knowing whether you’ll come home at the end of the day with a job or not… FINANCIAL SECURITY is most definitely a huge area in all of our lives! Leaving us often to wonder WHY our life is so chaotic… or WHAT we can do to stay afloat… or WHEN our BAILOUT is coming! Well… there is HOPE and it’s found in the most controversial subject of most of our lives… MONEY! I pray that you will do everything possible to NOT MISS the LAST WEEK of our “Generosity” Series this weekend at COC… called BAILOUT! Please come with an ‘Open Heart’ to hear from God and what He may have to say about your Finances! After all… when it comes to MONEY“It’s not what God wants FROM you… it’s what He wants FOR you!”

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week… (4) YOURS?!

 

Are YOU really LIKE GOD… (Or…) Do YOU just THINK YOU are...?

 

Three Areas you're being "RIPPED OFF" in when it comes to your Finances…

1. PEACE!

2. SECURITY!

3. OPPORTUNITY!

 

The First Thief… GULLIBILITY!

-It's time to stop separating the BOXES in your life!

-GOD WANTS IN EVERY BOX… including your FINANCIAL one!

 

The Second Thief… GREED!

-Matthew 6:24… NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS!

-Jesus says plainly… "You're either gonna WORSHIP ME… or YOUR STUFF!"

 

GREED is a condition of the HEART! Where we either worship the RESOURCE… or the SOURCE of the RESOURCE! (It ALL belongs to GOD anyway!)

 

Is your "SOURCE OF LIVING" stealing your "SOURCE OF GIVING?"

 

When it comes to GIVING… it's not about a TRANSACTION it's about a TRANSFORMATION!

 

You'll never accomplish DOING… if you can't first accomplish BEING!

(Meaning…) If you can't BE like Jesus (GIVE)... then you'll never DO what Jesus Did!
