In 10, 9, 8, 7…
There is something powerful and exciting every time I see a video of a rocket launch and the deep voice that accompanies it, slowly counting down the numbers to lift off.
When the engines ignite, and the rocket breaks free of the tower, there is an expectancy of adventure, exploration and hanging on for a great ride!
Ready to Launch
This weekend at North Pointe we are launching our programs and ministries for the fall. This is also a time of adventure, exploration and hanging on for a great ride, and we want you to to be a part of it!
We are hosting the community for our annual Fall Family Carnival on Saturday, September 7. This event is free and goes from 10am-3pm. It is a family event that will have every age smiling. Will you consider who you could invite to come with you? Each year people decide to check out North Pointe on a Sunday because of the warmth they felt at our Carnival.
Then…Sunday morning, in all three services (9:30, 11:00 and 12:30) we are going to be celebrating what God is doing in and through our congregation. This month we will be doing a series called “There is More.” Let me assure you, regardless of where you find yourself at in life, God has more in store for you, and he wants to work more through you.
There is MORE
In Philippians 1:6 the Apostle Paul boldly states, “I am certain that God, who began a good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Paul is certain that God will finish what he has started in us. He is not done with us yet. He has more in store for you and me! So regardless of how you feel or what you’ve been through, you don’t have to be confident in yourself or your own strength, you can be confident in the strength that comes from Jesus alone.
Jesus accomplishes change in us through a series of small things. More always starts with little. What little things do you need to begin to do to reconnect with God? Maybe you need to connect with him for the very first time. May I suggest that you start by showing up this Sunday? You will be glad you did. Then step out of your comfort zone at try out Alpha. Or sign up for a bible study. Or just eat bacon with some guys (Men’s Breakfast on Sept 14th!).
Jesus isn’t finished with you yet. Take confidence in this truth today.
It’s time to launch.
There is MORE.
