Sunday, February 5th: Thrive- The practice of giving
h By Pastor Bill Flavin

What did Jesus mean when he said that he came so that we might have life and life to the fullest? In our Thrive series we are going to look at a number of spiritual habits that can help us to grow our relationship with God. This week we look at giving as a practice and act of worship. Giving is an act of worship, an attitude of the heart, but scripture also makes clear that we have to also really give. To look at what we have and choose to set aside a portion to offer back to God as an act of worship.

Easter Sunday was a tide change event. Jesus’ death and resurrection forever changed our relationship with God. Part of the impact of it was also who’s relationship changed with God because of those events. Jesus’ ministry culminated in his death and resurrection, which was meant to be a gift and sacrifice to many people, and the hope of that message grounds us, and gives us both joy and hope even today.

On Palm Sunday, Jesus’ ministry moved into the limelight for many in Jerusalem that day.

Sunday March 17: “Rooted: Disciple” Luke 14:25-35

Early in adulthood I learned a hard lesson. Every choice (even the ones that feel like we are refusing to make a choice) has consequences and impact. Jesus wants to remind his followers that being a disciple is a wonderful and impactful way to live, that leads us to the most fulfilling life we are designed to live. Following Jesus also comes with commands to live a life that is unlike others and calls us to a higher standard.
