Impact:  Taming the Tongue 
 So in full disclosure I think this weeks sermon is going to get personal for most of us. I mean we will be talking about how we talk and who among us hasn't said something that we regretted? I won't retell the story that cost me 50 roses the day before Kyle's 1st birthday that then I had to explain to 80 people at the party...God has a funny sense of humor, and I haven't made that mistake again. I grew up with a Texas colloquialism that said, "never let your mouth overload your backside" (church version). I never understood what it meant, but when I committed this verbal faux pas it affected my backside. The truth is my mouth has, and still does, although less frequently, get me into trouble. I believe there is so much that you can tell about a person simply by the speech they use. Jesus himself said "it wasn't what went into our mouth that made us unclean but what came out of it". Now we live in the twitter age were you can drop a 140 character hand grenade and not have to be there to live in the overflow of the pain it caused. The truth is we all have been hurt by words and hurt others with them. So what if our mouths affect our impact for Jesus? What happens when how we live doesn't line up with what we SAY we believe? Lets face it the mouth is a hornets nest of sin, waiting to be opened and unleashed. Maybe this is why Paul tells us that we need to take captive every thought, before we speak and can't take it back. You do know you can't take it back, once its out there its out there. Groveling and Repentance are our only options then. Join us Sunday as we look at Taming the Tongue

Rock The Universe Refunds- As many of you are aware we had to cancel Rock The Universe due to Hurricane Irma. We would like to refund students monies to all those would like a refund. This will require a check to be cut and thus we will need to be able to write these checks to families and not students. We have also heard from some that have declined a refund and asked the money be kept in the Youth Ministry for Sunday night meals. This option is also available to you. So please help us by letting us know what you would like to do about these refunds.  
You may contact   
Thank you for your patience as we get this sorted out!
