“Jesus for President”

We start a new series this week and I can’t wait. I think it’s going to really hit home where most of us are living right now.

“Fear and anxiety are gripping our country. People are afraid of the economy, losing their home, the stock market, or that their candidate won’t win. We’re all looking for someone that we can put our trust in, that gives us a hope for the future. It’s time to get back to “In God we Trust”. “Jesus is Lord” has to be more than a religious slogan but a life long calling that affects every decision we make. Join us over the next couple weeks as we refocus our lives and nominate Jesus as our candidate for hope and change.”


“Hostage” prop

We just finished a series called, “hostage”. We made a big foam stage prop that now we don’t know what to do with. If you want it and live close to central florida, it’s all yours. We’ll destroy it in a couple days so let me know. It’s super light but might be awkward to transport. It comes in two pieces. Here’s a pic.

Creative Chaos

Last week we covered the song, “Whatever it Takes” by Lifehouse to kick off our “The Moment of Truth” marriage series. This week we’re talking about communication and we’re covering John Mayer’s “Say”. It’s funny because we really don’t do many covers but it just worked out that way on this series. In addition, we added in clips from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” with Brangelina. It has some good counseling scenes. Also, for a teaching opener we play “Moment of Truth” montage videos like this one.

Hey all, here’s a glimpse of the music we’re doing this week. We’re in the second week of our “Connect: Plugging into your source” series. The first week went great. Steve did a great job teaching us about connecting with God and the band was at and all time high. This week we tackle connecting with our mission. I can’t wait.

Sermon Series feedback

As I write, I’m hidden in a room in the bottom of a hotel with two of my good friends trying to decide what God would want to say through sermon series this year (wow, run on sentence.)

The point of a series is to take anywhere from three to six weeks to concentrate on a topic within out church community. (wow, another one.)

I want your feedback. What do you need to hear? What issues are you dealing with? What is the church not saying that we should be?
