Before I get started let me remind you that this Friday night is FXLive … a great family event with a life-changing message. We’ll have food trucks parked on our campus for you to enjoy with your family. But it’s also a great way to introduce your friends to our church. Stop by the CMC to pick up tickets for your family and your friends. Two weeks from today is Harvest Day, a very important day each year in the life of our church. In preparation, don’t just think about what you will give; ask God what you should give. If you think about what you should give you will ask, “What do I want to give or what can I afford to give?” But when you pray you ask God, “What do You want me to give?” So when you give what He shows you, you are stepping out on faith that God will meet your needs and the needs of our church.

We’re reading about our spiritual roots. It’s not just what God used to do; it’s what God still wants do through people who yield to the power of His Spirit. Read Acts 2:1-6. (more…)
