Awaken: April 18th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time with some acoustic worship.  We began our worship with several songs.  Then we got right into the message.  We are in the middle of our “Means of Grace” series.  We are using this time of Lent to look at how we are in relationship and connected to God.  Last night we talked about solitude and silence.  Solitude is a means of grace.  We watched a short video from Rob Bell and then discussed how we find solitude.  After we brought the message together we had a time for prayer and meditation and then closed with one last song.  Thanks to all of you who made it out!  Come and join us next week at Awaken – Monday nights 8:00pm.  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: August 9th

We had a great time as always last night at Awaken.  We began our worship with several songs and some prayer.  After some singing we watched the nooma video, “Rhythm” by Rob Bell.  After the video we took some time to share with each other some thoughts that we had on the video.  We talked about what it means to live in tune with God.  After our discussion we went into a time of prayer and sang one more song.  Next week will be our last Sunday for Awaken before we move to Tuesdays.  Come on out and join us and bring a friend or two.  Then remember on August 23rd we will not have Awaken, because we are moving to Tuesdays starting on August 25th.  See you soon!

Awaken: July 26th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time as always.  We began our worship with Roper and Patrick leading several songs.  After singing some songs we watched a nooma video from Rob Bell.  We watched Sunday 004.  After the video we took some time to discuss some of our thoughts that we had on the video.  We talked a little about why we do what we do.  We talked about the “church” and what the church is.  We shared with each other and raised questions that we had so that we can grow together.  After some discussion we had a time of prayer and one last song.  Come and join us next week at Awaken.  We will be in the loft.  Come as early as 7:00pm and we will begin worship at 8:00pm.  Bring a friend and we will see you soon.

Awaken: April 19th

A good night.  Last night we had some delicious carrot cake that Kyle’s mom makes and some hot coffee available.  We began our worship with several songs including a song that we learned a couple of weeks ago called “God of This City” by Tomlin.  After that we watched a nooma video, from Rob Bell, called Tomatoes.  After watching the video we had a little bit of a discussion about the video and brought up some things we liked or didn’t like about it.  Patrick led the discussion time.  We then had a time of prayer and closed with another song.  Come out and join us next week at Awaken.  Worship starts at 8:00pm and feel free to come out as early as 7:00pm.  See you soon!

Prayer board will be up later this week.

Awaken: February 15th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  We had a delicious meat and cheese tray for all and some of that (famous from this blog) coffee.  We kicked off worship with several songs.  We sang Song of Hope, Indescibable, Here With Me, and Unashamed Love.  After singing some songs we took a look at a video from Rob Bell’s nooma series.  The video we watched is called Shells.  After the video we had a time of prayer.  We filled up the prayer board and Patrick played a song.  Then we closed with a song (My Glorious).  Come and join us next week at Awaken.  Matt Strom (The Judge) will bring us the message.  Worship will start at 8:00pm.  Feel free to come and hang out as early as 7:00pm.  Check back here later today for the prayer board.

Awaken: December 14th

We had a great night last night at Awaken and that is not only because the Cowboys won!  We had some dips and hung out a little before worship started and watched the Cowboy game.  We started worship at 8:00pm with a couple of songs.  We then watched one of Rob Bell’s nooma videos called “Name”.   After the video we had a time of prayer and Patrick played a song called, “Who am I”.  After some time of prayer we closed our worship with another song!  I want to encourage everybody to come out next week as we celebrate Advent and Christmas at Awaken this coming Sunday.  You will not want to miss it so come on up and hang out with us, worship with us, and there will probably be a little bit of food.  Invite a friend to come with you.  This is going to be a great evening.  Come on up as early as 7:00pm on Sunday and hang out with us before worship.  Worship will start at 8:00pm.  See you and your friends on Sunday!
