DontWasteYourLife

This weekend we are kicking off our move to Sunday mornings and in a new location with a big BBQ with some bounce houses for the kiddos.  We are using this as a time to invite our whole city to come join us for a celebration of the life that is happening in our humble church.  Please pray for our church, this move, and all our new friends who will be joining us.

We are also kicking off a new series that I’m really excited about called Don’t Waste Your . . .  We are going to be tackling the issue of what we are living for and whether we are wasting our lives away or living life to the fullest.

Here is the blurb that we are putting in the Watermark News:

“Our need for worth is so powerful that whatever we base our identity and value on we essentially ‘deify.’ We will look to it with all the passion and intensity of worship and devotion, even if we think ourselves as highly irreligious. ” — Timothy Keller

Have you ever looked at your life and wondered – Is there more to life than this?  We live in a day and age where we are told to be whatever we want to be and to believe in whatever feels right for us.  We love freedom of choice and we love trying new experiences, but that type of lifestyle can lead to a daily reality that is detached from deep relationships and using the one life we have for something that is bigger than ourselves.  Could it be that a life that is spent pursuing new experiences and personal pleasure in jobs, relationships, even sex, is not leading to freedom but to imprisonment?  What if you could find your greatest happiness and deepest fulfillment, not in spending your life on you, but in magnifying the creator of the universe?  This is a series for anyone who has wondered if God loves them and has a bigger plan for their life.  In the next few weeks we will take a look at how the love of God may be different then you’ve ever thought.  We are going to go on a journey to see if the unwasted life is the life that seeks its own joy by putting the infinite value of Jesus Christ on display for the world to see.
