This week Lead Pastor Carl Gulley concluded our Turn Your Ears On series with a message on hearing God through His people. The Bible says we hear in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). We don’t have to fully rely on ourselves to hear God, we can invite other people into our process.
This morning Lead Pastor Carl Gulley continued our series, Turn Your Ears On. Throughout our series we are learning more about what it means to hear God and how we can respond. This week we talked about hearing God through the Bible. The Bible is the very written voice of God.
On Sunday Lead Pastor Carl Gulley kicked off our new series, Turn Your Ears On. Over the course of the next three weeks, we are going to be unpacking the importance of hearing and responding to the voice of God. Relationship with God is not meant to look like a monologue, but an ongoing dialogue. He longs to speak to us, to give us direction, affirmation and so much more. We find deeper intimacy with Jesus when we pause and allow Him to speak.
This week we celebrated where we have been and where we are going with a special generations Sunday. Throughout our morning Carl Gulley shared on why we invest in the next generation, and who we are as an inter-generational church. In a culture that can be divisive, our heart is to see the Church unite the generations for Kingdom impact.
This week Carl Gulley shared part four of our series, Where Mountains Melt, with a message on why we worship the way we do. Some people jump around during worship, others raise their hands and some people sit quietly before the Lord. Maybe you’ve wondered which expression is correct. The truth is, each posture is an expression of worship, and there is no right or wrong way to worship. The goal of worship is not an expression, it is love and obedience toward Jesus. Worship is not an expression, it is a lifestyle.
On Sunday lead pastor Carl Gulley shared part three of our series, Where Mountains Melt, with a message on choosing to worship even when you don’t feel like it. It is easy to worship when everything in life seems to be going great. Other times our circumstances can cause confusion, and hold us back from worship. Basically, we get spiritual motion sickness because everything is saying God is good, but circumstances are saying otherwise. Regardless of how we’re feeling, it is always right to worship God. All of our problems will not all disappear in an instant, but we’ll find the presence of God. And in that place, we find freedom.
This week Lead Pastor Carl Gulley continued our Where Mountains Melt series with a message on multitasking. Some of us tend to think we’re great at multitasking while others will freely admit to being bad at it. Regardless of what camp we’re in, the truth is that multitasking forces us to quickly switch our focus between tasks. We end up losing out because we can’t devote our full attention to any of the tasks before us. And in the context of worship, multitasking doesn’t work.
This morning Lead Pastor Carl Gulley kicked off our new series, Where Mountains Melt. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be taking a look at worship and what it looks like in our lives. Many times we reduce worship to a set of three songs at the beginning of a service, but it’s actually so much more than that.
This Sunday was declared volunteer Sunday because our volunteers are so worth honoring! Our church could not function without the men and women who carry the vision in their hearts, and give their all to see the Kingdom come in the lives of those around them. Carl Gulley led us in celebrating our volunteers and telling us more about how we can jump in and serve.
This week we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and the life we have because of Him! Lead Pastor Carl Gulley shared on the impact the cross has on our lives. Jesus closed the gap between our performance and God’s perfection, and now we can have relationship with Him.
