Tables – “Are you prepared to make room?.......Really?”
With out you we’re not us, there’s a seat for you. We laugh hard, loud, often and there is nothing better than a table with good friends. There is something sacred in gathering and we will gather and do life together for every reason possible. We do life together– the good, the bad, and the ugly. We love sharing life together.
1 Thessalonians 2:8- “so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well”
Transformation – ”If you’re coming to stay the same, you’re in the wrong place”
We are called to be transformed into Jesus’ image, never Him into ours. Come as you are and let the transformation begin.
Romans 12:2: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God,what is good and acceptable and perfect
Seriously Fun – “We take the gospel seriously but not ourselves”
Guarding against doing “vanilla”
We do for one what we wish we could do for all.
God called His people to celebrate and remember His faithfulness and we live in that rhythm
John 2 , Proverbs 17:22, Psalm 126:2, 1 Corinthians 11:27-31
Failing Forward – “Obedience to Christ is worth the risk”
learning from our mistakes to not reproduce/repeat them
challenging the status quo
holding method loosely
God values faithful obedience over success so we value taking risks without guaranteed outcomes.
If it has great results, but doesn’t please Jesus…it is not a success!!
Leadership Development – “Never too early to start and always too early to quit.”
empowering next generation
cultivation of all generations
let them lead real things.
