Awaken: November 23rd

Last night at Awaken we had a great time in worship!  We began our worship with several songs.  It was nice to have Matt Roper back with us this week.  After singing several songs we got right into a time for the message.  We wrapped up our Irresistible Invitation series this week by taking a look back at what we have been talking about.  Responding to the Extravagant Heart of God.  We then talked a little about making a commitment to our place of worship or church.  Then we spent some time in prayer and meditation.  We closed with a final song and our benediction.  Come and join us next week at Awaken.  See you soon!

Awaken: November 16th

We began our worship with several songs.  After some singing together we got right into the message.  We are in the middle of our Irresistible Invitation series and this week we looked at what it means to be a True Community.  We talked about the need to show love amongst ourselves and to others, we talked about how we must offer radical hospitality, and we talked about how a True Community uses the gifts God gives them to serve.  After the message we spent some time in prayer and meditation and then closed our worship with a song.  Come on out and join us next week as we conclude our Irresistible Invitation series.  See you soon!

Awaken: November 9th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  It was great to worship with all of you.  We began our worship with several songs and then we went right into a time for the message.  We are in the middle of our Irresistible Invitation series and this week we talked about what a relationship with God looks like.  How do we have that? We watched a nooma video from Rob Bell, called Rhythm.  The video prompted us to think about what it means for us to be in tune with the “song.”  After the video and a little discussion we had a time of prayer and meditation.  We then closed with a song and the benediction.  Come and join us next week for worship!  See you then.

Awaken: November 2nd

Rain! We still had a great night of worship though!  We began our worship by singing several songs together.  Then we got right into a time for our message.  We are in week three of our Irresistible Invitation series and study.  Last night we talked about being alive in Christ and what that means.  We talked about sanctifying grace and being mature in our faith and seeking Christian perfection.  Seek Ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.  It is simple.  After a little discussion and listening we had a time of meditation and prayer.  Then we closed with a song and our benediction.  Thanks to all those who braved the rain and made it out.  Come and join us next week as we talk about kingdom living.  See you soon!

Awaken: October 26th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  We began our worship with several songs.  Including introducing a new song called “SMS (Shine)” by David Crowder Band.  After some singing together we got right into the message.  We are in the middle of a series on Irresistible Invitation responding to the extravagant heart of God.  This week we talked about the Incarnation, we talked about the Christian Experience and then about our Christian Witness.  After a little bit of talking we had a time of prayer and meditation and closed out with a song and our benediction.  Come and join us next week as we continue our Irresistible Invitation series.  See you soon.

“Shine Your light so all can see it
Lifted up, ’cause the whole world needs it
Love has come, what joy to hear it
He has overcome, He has overcome.”
-SMS (Shine) – Crowder

Awaken: October 19th

Last night we had a great night.  Thank you Jerry for joining us while you are in town and playing a little electric guitar with the band the last couple of weeks.  We began our worship with several songs.  After that we got right into our message/discussion.  We are right at the beginning of a series called “Irresistible Invitation.”  The series is about responding to the extravagant heart of God.  Last night we talked about who God is, where we experience or see God in our lives and the lives of others.  And our response to God’s love.  When we are actively looking for God’s presence in our lives it becomes much easier to see God at work.  After a little bit of discussion we took some time for prayer and meditation.  Then we closed with a benediction.  Come and join us next week as we continue our Irresistible Invitation series.  If you still need a book.  I have one for you. See you soon!

Irresistible Invitation

We will be beginning a new series on October 19th!  The series is based off the book “Irresistible Invitation” by Maxie Dunnam.  This is a church wide series that we will be participating in and will include a 40 day devotion (which is the book) that will go along with the message or sermons from Tuesday night and Sunday morning and a study that is offered on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings.  We are very excited about this six week study and we are giving a copy of the book to everybody who wants one and will commit to join us in this series.  You can pick up a book on Tuesday night or pick up a book in Patrick’s office anytime he is there.  We will begin reading the book on October 17th (which is a Sunday).
