Sermons about Gathering
We live in a much complex world than ever before. We also live in a world that is more skeptical and does not understand the church. A lot are asking, "what is church?" Or, "why should I go to church?" Great questions that we must learn to answer. The early church, think book of Acts, helps the modern church answer the question, "what is church?" We may be surprised at what the answer(s) truly are.
Christianity is a team sport. The role that believers play in each others lives is very significant. We must both be willing to build others up and to be built up by others. We will never be the individual followers of Christ we are meant to be or the body of Christ we are meant to be unless we function as a team and be part of each others lives. The interactions and connection that we usually experience during a worship service is not sufficient to accomplish the task.

Joint re:solutions January 5, 2014 – joint service with The Gathering Text: II Corinthians 5:10-21; Revelation 21:5-7 Key Thought: Taking a look at your life through Christ's eyes could lead to a really "new year" in 2014. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. II Corinthians 5:20-21, NLT Synopsis: There are two kinds of change - the kind that happens to you, and the other kind, the better kind - the kind that you make happen. A resolution is an attempt to point yourself towards change and start the ball rolling. A joint resolution is (at least non-technically speaking) a decision you make with others to spark change - a change in which everyone has a part to play. So what might YOUR plans be for 2014?
