The Happy
Commited Life
"The Voices in My Head"

October 4, 2015 to November 22, 2015
Do you feel satisfied with your Christian life? Do you sometimes wonder if there is more to it? Did you know Jesus wanted us to live a "Happy committed life" for Him? In Mark chapter 5 Jesus made 8 statements about how to live satisfying Christian Life. He wanted us to commit them to our mind and live them in our heart....but sometimes, the Voices in My Head just don't seem to listen.

Inside Out
July 12, 2015 to July 26, 2015
We like to make a good impression. Thus it makes sense we are very focused on the outside. However, God is more interested in the inside. He is interested in getting inside our lives and inside our church. And once He's there he wants to turn us inside out.

Perfect Commitment

We are all missing something in life. Itís a God sized hole that weíve tried to fill with endless searching. Itís a thirst we canít quench. Jesus calls himself the ďLiving WaterĒ. He promised if we would drink of His life our thirst would go away. But we donít. Maybe itís because the water. However, maybe the water is not the issue. Perhaps, itís the way the water is perceived. Itís time to quench the thirst by experiencing the true ďLiving WaterĒ.

Cost Analysis
January 4, 2015 to January 25, 2015
Cost analysis, itís a term we usually associate with business. But truthfully it has everything to do with commitment. Cost analysis simply put is weighing the value of an item or a relationship against to the price it takes to get it. If we deem the value higher than the price we commit, if we deem the price to high than we do not; itís simple arithmetic. So before we embark on understanding commitment to Christ, perhaps we should do a cost analysis to be sure we know what we are getting ourselves into.
