You are invited! No matter who you are, how much money you have, what color your skin is, what you’ve done, how you think or what you believe, you are invited. Jesus opens His arms to everyone and He calls us to do the same. You may say, if not out loud, aren’t there some who Jesus doesn’t want in His kingdom? Aren’t there some who are disqualified. That is a good question because the answer is such good news for all of us. As far as I know, the only way to be disqualified is to disqualify yourself by declining His invitation.

The Master told a story about a man who had prepared a banquet for his friends. He told his servants to go tell his guests that he was ready for them. They all made excuses and refused to come so the man commanded his servants to go out and invite the poor, the lame and the blind. His servants, knowing what kind of man he was, had already done so. Then he told them “Go out in the highways and hedges and compel them to come in so that my house may be full." Everyone is invited.

Jesus loved His disciples. He loved and ate with the Pharisees whom he vehemently disagreed with. He ate with tax collectors. He loved and accepted anyone who would come to Him. He was constantly saying “come to me”. “Come to me all you who are burdened and I will give you rest”. (Matt 8:28) “Let the little children come to me” (Matt 19:14). He said to the rich young ruler, “Go and sell all that you have and give it to the poor and come follow me”. He said to the Pharisees, “You search the scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal live; and these are they which testify of me. But you are not willing to come to me that you may have life.”

Will you come? You are invited to worship with us this Sunday morning at 10:30am, 2620 Clinton Ave., Campus 805. Just follow the blue flags!

This Sunday, our missionary friends, Curtis and Devry Coghlan, will be with us! I can’t wait to see them and hear about what God is doing through their ministry! Don’t miss it! See you there!

Everyone was surprised! Mary was surprised by the angel. Joseph was shocked and amazed to find that Mary’s incredible story was true. The Shepherds were stunned and afraid when light suddenly appeared around them and they were told the good news of Jesus’ birth. And even the wise men from the east must have been astonished to find the King whom they had traveled so far to see, lying in a feed trough.

It was a surprise party! But unlike our parties, it was the guests who were surprised. It was a celebration of the entrance of the King Of kings and Lord of lords into the world. There were only a select few who were invited that night but Jesus would eventually invite us all to this celebration.

Everywhere you look this season, you will see Christmas. Online, in the stores, on the streets, on television and in almost every home you will see the party happening. Even those who do not believe in Christ as we do, observe the day. Our culture is mostly secular and Christmas is about Santa and reindeer to many. But it's undeniable. Jesus birth has made its mark on the world. It’s right that we should all celebrate. Whether it’s for the true meaning of Christmas or not, most everyone observes the day. Jesus has invited you to the party!

If you’d like to celebrate, join us for this new message series called “Surprise Party” starting this Sunday at 10:30am, 2620 Clinton Ave. Campus 805, just follow the blue flags! Everyone is welcome! That’s the way Jesus wanted it to be.

Also, Point of Grace will be with us at The Net December 23rd at 5:00pm. We are the last stop on their Christmas Concert Tour. The concert is absolutely free but we will be receiving donations for the First Stop ministry to the homeless. It’s a great ministry and all donations will go toward renovating their facility. Mark your calendars now! See you there!
Most of us run from or at least shy away from conflict. But, conflict is an opportunity to remove an obstacle in your relationship. I used to hate conflict before I became a Christian, but once I was introduced to Jesus who said of himself, “I am the way, the truth and the life” everything changed. Whenever conflict arose in a relationship, I wanted to find a way to overcome the impasse. I wanted to pursue the truth about the situation. And I wanted God to breath His life into the relationship. I found that God always had a path beyond the problem if both parties were willing and that the friendship will be stronger for having conquered the disagreement. Conflict is an opportunity.

There is no telling what great things God has in store for you just beyond a difficult conversation or an uncomfortable confrontation. He wants to bring His way and His truth and His life into all of our relationships. This Sunday, we will talk about the key to solving these situations God’s way. You'll find that with Jesus, we can disarm the enemy who seeks to destroy every relationship. Our Savior has a way that will put us at ease and bring peace to our chaos.
How many people do you really trust? Are there people in your own family that you distrust? That can be especially though to deal with. And there are certain levels of trust. You might trust someone to watch your car keys while you step away for a moment but you wouldn’t necessarily trust them to watch your children. I believe that, like respect, trust is earned. We might say that we respect everyone but do we really? We can certainly treat everyone with dignity and respect but that doesn’t mean that in our heart of hearts, that we really respect everyone. Trust is the same way. We want to trust everyone but we really only trust those who have proven themselves over time.

This week’s message is about trust between friends and family. I would venture to guess that most all of us have some type of trust issue with a family member. Maybe a family member has an issue with you. With the holidays coming up, it might be nice to hear what God says about being trustworthy. It could come in handy this Thanksgiving around the dinner table or the Christmas get together that is soon to follow. I hope that this isn’t an elephant in your family room but if it is, God knows what to do.
First, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who contributed to the gift Lynnae and I received last Sunday! You are so generous and we are so blessed to serve you. We truly love and appreciate each one of you! You’re the best!

This week we begin a new series on the family called “Elephant In The Family Room! It actually will apply to all types of relationships. Sunday, we will focus on communication.

Everyone knows, Christian and unbeliever alike, that communication is the key to a great relationship. It can also be the reason a relationship falls apart. I’m not a psychologist and I will not attempt to council you on good communication skills. Instead, this Sunday, we will look at what the Bible says about communication. We will hear what the designer of all things says about the way we should talk and interact with each other!

God has written the owners manual for relationships. He knows and has revealed to us through scripture how to have healthy interaction with each other. The foundation is communication. He wants to change our dysfunctional ways. But, He doesn’t just want to change what comes out of our mouth. He wants to change the heart. He wants to transform the source of our communication. Our perspective will surely change when we see God’s motivation and His hope for us all.
