HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW
Pastor Nick will continue where Pastor John left off with "planting & watering," and how these practices are part of the everyday lifestyle of a true worshiper.
Here is Paul's "How-To" plant & water, from Romans 12:9-21
Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it.
Be good friends who love deeply.
Be inventive in hospitality.
Bless your enemies.
Laugh with your happy friends, share tears when they’re down.
Make friends with nobodies.
Discover beauty in everyone.
Get along with everybody.
Buy that person lunch, get them a drink.
Show goodness by being surprisingly generous.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Come as you are. We're here as an open sanctuary of hope to Shawnee. We are a community of friends and FAMILIES devoted to sharing God's love with the entire neighborhood, especially those who are hurting.
Our worship is all about passionately expressing our love for God, in the liberty of His presence, whether singing a modern chorus or a traditional hymn, whether in quiet reverence or with joyful noise!
Our faith is not a set of rules, it's a lifestyle of freedom in Christ. He is here with us today through His Holy Spirit, to have a relationship with us, to guide, to help, to love, and to save us.
The pastor's message is always meant to encourage, edify, and instruct us in applying God's word to our everyday lives. It's principles help us live a more satisfying and victorious life no matter what challenges we face.
