This week’s message is titled "The End Zone”. That’s where we all want to be! We want to make it to the end zone and enjoy the moment! We all love to win!

Last Sunday morning as we all huddled together in the cold preceding our awesome “Trucks and Treats” event, I told everyone that God had “rigged” things for our success. It’s pretty amazing that we landed at Campus 805 just 4 months after our church began and at six months, we hosted our first large outreach to the city. But the incredible thing is the people that God has brought into this vision of helping others. As I looked around, I was struck by the fact that everyone is so committed to using their gifts to love someone else. It felt as if God had rigged it. It’s too perfect to be a coincidence. We are praying and working hard, but God is behind the scenes pulling the strings, bringing in the perfect people, making things happen, and tilting things in our favor. That’s the way it works in the kingdom.

God has a path for all of us. If we are willing to buy into His plan, He will do the extraordinary. He will move mountains for us. He will supply our needs. He will lead us on an exciting path that lifts our hearts, heals our wounds and makes us a blessing to others.

Speaking of helping others, I want to highlight a new purpose group that I’m very excited about. It’s a group that helps our service men and women. They will pray, write letters and send care packages to our military people who are deployed. If you have a heart to serve our military or know someone who does, please see our purpose groups page. You can join any of our purpose groups online where you feel called to serve.

We do two things at “The Net” - We worship God and help people. If you don’t already attend The Net, we would love to have you join us. We meet every Sunday at 10:30 am at the Stone Center, Campus 805. See you there!
Three hours of fun and relaxation! This week, The Net is offering the entire city an opportunity to spend 3 fun-filled, relaxing hours listening to great music, eating great food, playing games, and having fun with the kids. It’s our "Trucks And Treats" event this Sunday afternoon from 1:00-4:00 on the Butler Green at Campus 805 (2620 Clinton Ave). Paul McDonald of American Idol will be live in concert and there will be food trucks and fun for the whole family. And the best part is IT’S FREE!! You can’t beat that!

It’s part of our purpose as a church to Worship God and Help People. We think it helps to give you a break from busy life and a chance to get together with friends, family and neighbors and enjoy an afternoon. This will also serve as a trick or treat alternative for those who are looking for that opportunity.

We will also have our worship service on the Green at our regular time of 10:30 am. Come and join us this Sunday as we focus on family, friendship and fun! See you there!
Last Sunday, I revealed one simple but very powerful tactic that can cripple the power of sin and temptation. It's very simple. Just wait! When you are confronted with temptation, just "Wait"! Resolve it by knowing that no matter what the temptation is, your response is predetermined. Decide to delay your actions when you are drawn toward making the wrong choice. No matter when or where you are confronted with it, commit to wait. Get a cup of coffee, call a friend, check your email, read a Bible verse – anything, but just make a habit of delaying your actions. Distract yourself from the heat of the moment.

And if you want to seal the deal while you are waiting, say this simple prayer, "God, do you have a better idea of how I should handle this situation?" Then, watch and experience as God provides a way out of temptation. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

We must not allow our emotions to lead us. The scripture says that "as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God". (Romans 8:14)

This week's message is titled "Calling the Play"! If we look to Jesus, we will always find our way. I hope you will join us this Sunday at the Stone Event Center, 2620 Clinton Ave. at 10:30am. If you weren't there last week, check out the video on our website.
How do you let your burdens go? How can you break free from the sins and unhealthy habits that are holding you back in life? How can you begin to get the most out of every day? The words of Christ and His apostles are liberating and life- giving. He wants us to break free. He wants us to run the race in joy and freedom! If we follow the master - the one who has conquered death, hell, and the grave, we will find the answers.

I believe God has given me some very encouraging words for you this week! Come and join us at The Net for worship and a way forward out of the rut of distraction, depression and destruction. 10:30 at the Stone Event Center located at Campus 805, 2620 Clinton Ave.
Do you know your next step? Do you wonder if there is a next step for you? No matter what possible situation you find yourself in at the moment, God has a way forward for you! It’s amazing how willing He is to reveal it, once we are willing to take that next step with Him. He is ready, are you? I had a person ask me to pray for them this week because they had made some mistakes and were worried that maybe God had forgotten about them.

God doesn’t forget about us. It’s not even a possibility. He has invested so much in us that not even the slightest turn toward Him escapes His attention. His mission depends on you and people like you. The only condition He places on playing an important role in His kingdom is the ability to say yes to Him. Sometimes it’s a step or a leap of faith that propels us forward. Are you willing to take that leap?

Why not start this Sunday by making a commitment to yourself and to God that you will show up - and you will take the next step no matter what He calls you to do! Lynnae and I will be there with you to pray for you and to help you because we have already taken that leap ourselves. Most of you will be back from Fall Break and I know you will be tired. We will be too. But let’s make a point to gather and worship together and take the next step with Jesus.
