Awaken: October 5th

We had a great night at Awaken.  We met upstairs in the Loft last night and it was different, and enjoyed by all!  Last night we watched a Rob Bell video from the nooma series called, “Sunday”.  Sunday talks about why we do the things we do on Sundays.  After watching we talked about the video for a little while.  We talked about putting out heart into the things that we do.  We talked about why we do the things that we do.  It was some great discussion.  The band did a great job too in a new place.  Thanks band!

Something new at Awaken besides just the location… is our new prayer board.  We encouraged one another to share the joys and concerns with each other throughout the service by using the prayer board.  Each week we will share those prayer concerns here on the blog.  You can then use the blog as a place to share prayer concerns with each other throughout the week.

Come out and join us next week at Awaken.  Come up as early as 7:00pm for some coffee, fellowship, food, free wifi, music, and more.  Worship will start at 8:ish.  See you soon!

Awaken: September 28th

We had a great time at Awaken last night.  We opened up worship with a few songs and then we watched a video from the Rob Bell nooma series.  We watched video number 16 titled, “Store”.  Great video!  Store is about how we all get angry at things from time to time, and how can we learn to channel that anger toward something constructive – something that’s bigger than ourselves.  We had a time of prayer and then we closed with a couple more songs.  If you missed out on the video and you would like to watch it just let Patrick know and he will figure out how to show it to you.

Next week at Awaken we will be meeting in the Loft at Meadowbrook.  The Loft is the big room upstairs.  If you head up the stairs when you walk in the front doors you will not miss it.   It will be easy to find, so don’t worry about that.  Worship will start at the same time — 8ish.

I am extending the challenge from last week.  The challenge where I challenged you to invite two different people to come to Awaken.  The challenge continues!  If you invited two people last week, then invite them again or invite two different people to come.  Oh and by the way if you want to invite more than two people that is great.  Challenge Extended Extended.

It’s estimated that supermarkets in the United States spend up to $180 million annually to replace last shopping carts.  -I saw this in the nooma video case and decided to share.

Awaken: September 21st

This week at Awaken we watched a video from the nooma series by Rob Bell.  We watched the video called “Open”.  The Open video is about Prayer.  It is about being honest with God in our prayers.  If you couldn’t make it this past week and would like to see the video let us know and we will find a way to show it to you.  After the video we had a time of prayer.  We sang a couple of more songs and then hung out for a little bit.

“To the only God
who is able to keep us
who is able to keep us from falling
to the only God
be all glory and honor
majesty and power
for all ages now and forevermore.”
-To the Only God, by Chris Tomlin

Come out and join us next week at Awaken on September 28th.  We will be in the sanctuary and it starts at 8:00pm.  I am extending the challenge to everybody to invite two people to Awaken this next week.  I am not talking about two people that are here every week, but invite two other people to come and join us at worship.  Hit them up with an invite and who knows they might be looking for something like Awaken.  We will be talking about ANGER!!!

Challenge Extended.
