Get Grinched: The Heart of Wonder

November 27, 2012

Just like the Grinch, your heart can become two sizes too small when you forget about the wonder of Christmas. The noise of commercials, Christmas lists and shopping can become your focus. Remember the shepherds in the Christmas story? They are quietly tending their sheep when their whole world is filled with an amazing event. So take a step back, still your heart and wonder with the shepherds in the good news of this little baby who comes, not as a king, but as one among us. Grow your heart another two sizes as you rediscover the wonder of Christmas.

Giving Thanks

November 20, 2012

What are you doing this Thanksgiving? One thing might be to join us to give thanks. Next Sunday we will pause before we all dive headlong into the Thanksgiving/Christmas maelstrom so we can get the holidays off on the right foot. And while we're getting this gratitude thing straight, we'll celebrate a couple baptisms. That's worth giving thanks for too! So before you start the holiday season, stop...

Broke: Doing it Right (Greg)

November 14, 2012

It's easy to be broke, but God doesn't want you to be. What God wants broke is the grip your money has on you. God never intended anyone's wealth and resources to be chains. God wants them to be blessings. Once you've broken those old chains and got your budget and debt under control it is time to focus on the positive task, the fun part: what all that money was there for in the first place! Just think about it, money that doesn't take you down, but to a whole new level!

Broke: Getting Control Back (Melissa)

November 6, 2012

Does it seem like all you've been hearing about lately is the economy...the national budget, our state's budget, your own budget? Do you ever want to turn off all the noise? The belief that we don't have enough money controls much of the conversation, and too often much of our lives. We will talk about how a budget can help us reshape the conversation so we can budget with a focus on gratitude for the abundance we have.
