God looks at the heart! (1 Samuel 16:7) God has designed us to have clean and healthy hearts and gratitude is the key! This series, "Priceless" is about having a grateful heart and what comes out of a grateful heart. Last week, we talked about time - living in the moment as opposed to being stuck in the past or the future. If we are to have the future that God has envisioned for us, then we must live in the moment and take advantage of every opportunity, even if that opportunity gets in the way of "our" plans.

This week we are talking about our possessions. We are taking a look at the things that God has entrusted us with and how to seize every opportunity so that God can and will entrust us with more. "You have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things". (Matt 25:23)

Isn't it amazing how God fulfills our desires in a healthy way. Religion makes us think that God wants to take from us, but Jesus came to give good things to us. Once we come to terms with that truth, we will become grateful and gratitude produces a humble heart. God gives grace to the humble! (James 4:6)

I hope you'll join us this week. I have a beautiful story to tell you about someone in our church. I think you'll love it!
God has determined to give you a certain number of opportunities! But the possibilities are limitless. That might sound contradictory, but think of it this way - each opportunity is like a seed. It’s finite. It’s something that you can perceive. You can hold it, hear it, see it, touch it, or taste it. Sometimes it’s just an idea or a prompt to do something or create something that doesn’t yet exist. Think of each opportunity as an acorn. If you hold on to it, that’s all it will ever be. But if you take action and plant it, you may find that what you once held in the palm of your hand was actually a forest of oak trees.

Alone, we would never be able to discern all the opportunities that God has planned for us. But He walks beside us, He instructs us and He works in us both to will and to do His good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13) We have the help we need. If we will open ourselves to the possibilities, everything will change. We won’t just feel His presence around us at times. We will find ourselves swept up in the current of God’s Spirit, His will and His work! What a life!! I recommend it!!

Join us for church Sunday morning, 10:30 and the Stone Event Center located at Campus 805. I’ll see you there!
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.
