This Weekend at Hope:
We Were Made for More | Counter the Culture |
Romans 12:1-2
Good Morning Hope!
What are you made for?
Authors, bloggers, podcasters, speakers, and teachers today produce an endless stream of great content meant to help us enjoy and find our way to the kind of life we are all trying to live. It can be very challenging to be confident that we are living into what God has made us to be.
What's shaping your life on an everyday basis? What are you thinking about? Our thoughts, our focus, and what we expose ourselves to has a lot to do with our growth and transformation.
Here is a quick look at what's shaping me:
Audiobooks in the car:
  • Dirty Glory
  • Psalms and Proverbs daily reading plan YouVersion Bible
  • Everybody Always
  • A Culture of Honor
 Study (books, articles, notes, prayer):
  • Alpha Prayer Class (I'll be teaching this in January.)
  • Church Growth and Leadership
What's shaping you?
This weekend we begin a new 4-week teaching series called, You Were Made For More. The series will empower you to take hold of the kind of life God has prepared for you. Romans 12 will be our launch pad, our foundation of God's truth and promise, for the teaching.
Too many times another day, month, and even year goes by and we miss "it."
Get ready, get excited, and get to church this weekend! You were made for more.
Pastor Eric

PS - Please remember to "fall back" by setting your clocks back one hour this weekend, or come to the 5:00 pm Saturday service actually at 5:00 pm!
