    I Will Go
    Series: I Will
    Jesus told His disciples that it was their job to go into the world and tell His story. As His followers today, it is now our job. In his book,
    I Will: Nine Traits of the Outwardly Focused Christian
    , Thom Rainer indicates four main reasons that people shy away from this task.
    • This is not my spiritual gift.
    • This is what we pay our preacher to do.
    • I don’t have time.
    • I don’t want to impose my beliefs on others.
    We will discuss these objections and how to take steps to overcome them and fulfill the mission of Jesus to spread the gospel into all the world.

    I Will Serve
    Series: I Will
    What would the world be like if each person stopped thinking about his or her own wants and instead thought about the needs of others? That is the way God wants His people to look at the world around them. How can we better serve?

    I Will Grow Together with Others
    Series: I Will
    In Acts 2 we get some insight into how the early church worked. They spent time together in both large and small group settings. Christianity is intended to be lived out among other believers, but that one meeting each Sunday staring at the backs of the heads of others is not enough. We must be more connected with others in the church to grow the way God intends.

    I Will Worship with Others
    Series: I Will
    In John 4:24 we read, "God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." We want to truly worship God, yet so many times we get caught up in our differences. This week we will consider setting aside our personal preferences to better worship with others.

    I Will Move from “I Am” to “I Will.”
    Series: I Will
    This week we begin a new series based on the book, I Will: Nine Traits of the Outwardly Focused Christian, by Thom Rainer. Last year, we looked at Rainer's book, I Am a Church Member. That book challenged us to consider our attitudes when it comes to the local church. This book takes the next step. Once we have our attitudes right, what will it cause us to do in the church?

    The Rich Man and the Beggar
    Too late. Those words can be so frustrating. God wants desperately for those words not to apply to our spiritual lives. He warns us again and again to be ready. He tries throughout scripture to bring His people into a closer relationship with Him. In this parable, Jesus tells us what can happen if we ignore that warning. Don't wait; get ready!

    Persistence and Perspective
    In Luke 18, we find two parables whose main characters are a widow, a tax collector and a Pharisee. These parable serve to remind us not to give up and that God's criteria in seeing the importance of people is very different than our culture's.

    Are You Ready?
    In Matthew 24 and 25, Jesus finds several ways to explain the importance of being prepared. We know that He will return, but we do not know when. Are we ready?
