Right vs. Wrong...Surviving to Thriving

This weekend, we wrap up our At the Movies series with the most intense movie of the month...12 Years a Slave. While none of us have ever owned slaves, this movie isn't simply about a time in our nation’s history, rather it raises deeper issues to wrestle with.
  • Who determines right versus wrong?
  • What causes a person, a nation, to wander so far off the path? Could it happen again…or is it already happening?
  • What's my role, my obligation of personal responsibility, in the face of "twisted living?"
  • What's the cure?
  • How does one go from surviving to thriving
As always, we have an incredible children's environment prepared for your child this weekend. They will love it and the people around you in adult worship will be able to listen with minimal distraction to what the Lord desires to whisper to them. The nature of this talk will not be appropriate for young children but, as adults, we need to have this talk.

Communion…wrapping up this series…worship...I can hardly wait!

See you soon,

What kind of shoes are you wearing?

In one of the opening lines from the movie we will be looking at this weekend, Forrest Gump, Forrest quotes his mother about the significance of shoes.  "Momma always says there's an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes.  Where they're going…where they've been…I've worn lots of shoes."  Obviously, it isn't about the shoes; it is about the different paths and journeys we take in life.  If you pause and look back over your life, I bet you've worn a lot of different shoes as well...some were comfortable, while others may have left blisters. 

Forrest Gump was one of the most popular movies from the 90's.  Don't miss this weekend as we take steps to move from entertainment to life engagement in the areas that matter most.  It doesn't matter what kind of shoes you wear…just get hereJ

See you soon,

Frozen and Ice Cream...check out what's happening this weekend!

At the Movies continues this week by looking at the movie, FROZEN. There are at least 1.2 billion reasons to reflect why the movie resonated with audiences around the world. We will compare a couple of the universal themes of life presented in Frozen and look to see what light and insight the eternal truth of scripture can provide.

If you have ever struggled with hurt or currently do (or a friend does), don’t miss or let them miss this weekend. There is HOPE, and it's real…it's not make believe or made up. It really is about a true act of love.

See you soon,
Pastor Ken
