Are we taking risks?  Jesus was the ultimate risk-taker.  Come tonight and be challenged.  Let’s get risky… Bring a friend to join us tonight and tell somebody about Awaken.  We will see you soon.  Worship starts at 8:00pm, but feel free to come as early as 7:00pm.

Passionate Worship

Tonight we will continue our series on the 5 practices of fruitful congregations and talking about Holistic Holiness.  Last week we looked at intentional faith development and the week before that we talked about radical hospitality.  Tonight we will be talking about passionate worship tonight.  We will be looking at Isaiah and an experience he had when he saw the Lord.  We will discover things we learn from Isaiah and this passage about what is means to have passionate worship.  When you come to worship do you expect to encounter God?  What do we expect when we come to worship?  Do we come looking for God?  Do we come seeking to discover?  Are we worshipping passionately?  Come and worship with us tonight!  Bring a friend to join us and we will see you soon.

Awaken: May 4th

We began a new series this week at Awaken.  We began our worship by singing together several songs.  After some singing then we dove into our new series.  We are talking about Holistic Holiness… and in particular we are talking about the 5 practices that make fruitful congregations from Bishop Schnase.  This week we introed the series by talking about social holiness.  We looked at Peter in the book of Acts chapter 11, Peter is being questioned by the council on why he went into the house of the uncircumcised men and ate with them.  We talked about what this means for us to have social holiness.  We heard a story of radical hospitality, intentional faith development, passionate worship, risk-taking mission and service, and of extravagant generosity.  These are the 5 practices that Bishop Schnase talks about in his book.  In the upcoming weeks we will go deeper into what each one of these means and looks like.  After some discussion and message time we had a time of prayer and then closed out with one final song.  Come and join us next week as we look at radical hospitality.  Bring a friend with you and we will see you soon.
