Suppose you met a person who loved you more than your friends love you, more than even your parents, spouse or your children. Imagine that this person’s highest desire was to see that you become the best “you” possible- that you would enjoy the greatest and deepest desires of your heart. What if you discovered that your new amazing friend also had such an incredible power of discernment that they knew the mysteries of your life. They knew exactly what would bring you the most joy and fulfillment. Consider that this person’s prayers, their time and energy were completely consumed with the hope that your heart's desires and your destiny would soon meet and you would become the healthy, complete person that God intended for you to be.

Now imagine that this person who loves you more than you even love yourself has all the answers for you. They have the power to help you make the decisions that will lead you to the highest road. What would be your response to such a friend? Would you trust them? Would you listen to them? Would you seek them out? Would you make it a priority to spend time in their presence?

What if God is real? What if Christ Jesus really is the Son Of God? What if, at this very moment, He really is interceding (advocating) for you? If He is everything that Christianity says He is, then you have just such a friend. How will you respond to him?

We will be talking about the response that unlocks every benefit that God has to offer you, this Sunday! Join us at 10:30am, 2620 Clinton Ave., The Stone Center, Campus 805. Come see what happening at The Net! It’s amazing what God is doing!
Knowledge, of course, is in the knowing but wisdom is in the doing. It’s not the man who merely knows to build his house on the rock who is wise. It’s the man who actually builds his house on the rock who is wise. Most of us already know what to do but we lack the motivation to do it. This week, we will identify the motivation that changes everything! I think you'll be surprised. It will jump start a new life of wisdom! 
 
This whole series called “Schooled” (Lessons from Proverbs) is rich with life changing truth! I’m so excited about it because I know that lives will be changed. I’m already seeing changes in my own life from preparation for this first message.

Don’t miss it! Join us Sunday morning, 10:30am, 2620 Clinton Ave., The Stone Center, Campus 805.
Jesus was different! What an understatement! He was the most unique human the world had ever seen! He was flesh and blood on the outside but on the inside dwelled the very person of God. God’s Holy Spirit makes all the difference! It made Jesus different from every man who had come before Him and that same Spirit of God makes us different. We may look like ordinary humans on the outside but we don’t act ordinary. We don’t think ordinary thoughts. We are filled with the extraordinary ability to stand for what is good and just and honorable without malice in our hearts for those who would do us harm for such a stand. We have the courage to lay ourselves on the line for what we believe.

Lisa Whelchel, our special guest this week is different. As a young actress in Hollywood, she had the courage to lay her career on the line for what she believed. Instead of being influenced by the television industry, she used her position to influence television for the good of young impressionable women who were intently watching her character’s every move. What a beautiful thing to see God at work in the most unusual places. That was His plan for Lisa and it’s His plan for you.

Join us this week for a very special time with Lisa. Sunday, 10:30am, 2620 Clinton Ave., The Stone Center, Campus 805.
We should be so full of grace and truth that every generation would be attracted to us. But they are not! For the most part, Generation X, those born between 1965 and 1976 are leaving the church. Millennials, born between 1977 and 1995 who were once engaged are leaving or have never been interested. Those born after 1995 are not even considering being a part of our faith. Could it be that the overwhelming beauty of the God’s grace, love, forgiveness, and truth is not being poured out of us to a world that is absolutely desperate for it? Could it be that the church has become an institution of learning rather than a living breathing organism with the cleansing blood of Christ pulsing through its veins?

I think the question that I have is not “What has happened to the church?" but rather “Where is the church?” Where are those who live and breathe Christ? Are we going to be content with learning more about the Bible and checking boxes on Sunday? Or are we going to listen intently with ears that hear the voice of our Shepherd and follow Him into the green pastures, beside still waters, and if need be, through the valley of the shadow of death without fear? I believe that is a church that every generation would not only find attractive but also as inescapable as our need for air and water and food.

David Thomson is one dynamic dude! Our conversation last week was explosive. He is an expert on generations and you will be amazed at the wisdom that could only come from God. Don’t miss this week! Our friend Bill Schmelling will be back for a visit and will be playing in the band. I have some special songs picked out especially for Bill. It’s going to be a great week!

Join us Sunday morning, 10:30, 2620 Clinton Ave., The Stone Event Center, Campus 805. See you there!!
Ray is a prodigy! Could it be that you are also a prodigy? Ray's gift is to bring out the prodigy in others. He has a way of listening to a person and identifying their God-given strengths and the exciting plans God has purposed for them. He is an encourager and has an ability to bring out the best in others.

I believe that the Holy Spirit is the access code to the prodigy in you. You’ve probably never even imagined the things that God has imagined for you. And you can access these gifts and hidden abilities when you connect with the one who created you! He can give you the “Desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). He can unlock His greatness in you! Are you ready for your life to be changed? Are you prepared to leave mediocre behind? Are you willing to take hold of that thing for which God has taken hold of you? (Philippians 3:12) It can happen! It’s supposed to happen.

Join us this Sunday morning at 10:30 am for a life-altering, course correcting and purpose finding mission.
