- Worship set: You Deserve, Rooftops, Higher than the Mountains, Lord I Need You, My Reward
- I thought that worship was good on Sunday. We introduced a new song, “Lord I Need You”. Good stuff.
- We’re still missing a drummer, but it’s still sounding ok. I’m told that I’m the only one who really cares that we don’t have a drummer. The problem is…I care!
- I believe the purpose of our music ministry is twofold: 1) is to lead our people into worship, and 2) is to be evangelistic in our music. In other words, it should be done with excellence and should be culturally relevant.
- And that’s why I care when we don’t have a drummer.
- The good news is, it looks like we’ve got someone to at least fill in for a while beginning this Sunday. We’ll see how they work out.
- Seems like we had about 4 or 5 first time guests, which is awesome because I preached one of the more difficult messages that I’ll preach this year. Oh well, I’m not much into giving people what they want to hear, just what they need to hear
- We continued the series, Jesus did not say… with Jesus did not say, “The church is about what you can get out of it. Make sure you are being fed.”
- Consumerism is plaguing the American church. We’ve got to stop thinking about what the church can do for us, and instead develop a mindset of what we can do for the church.
- All of us have to be ALL IN if we’re going to take Missoula and beyond for the Kingdom of God.
- I challenged everyone to step it up a serious notch or two when it comes to giving and serving.
- If we’re going to do what I think God wants us to do in 2012, we’re going to need the people of RCC to be all in.
- Btw, we finally have our new podcast page working!!!
- You can listen to the sermon here.
We’re continuing with our “Jesus did not say…” series this week at 11am at the Best Western. Come on out!
Ever get an intense, uncontrollable desire to study Christian doctrine? The kind of urging that keeps you up at night? Yeah me neither. But the truth is we need to understand the essential, life-changing, eternal truths found in the scriptures. And we’re going to do just that…but it won’t be as boring as it sounds. We’re going to focus on truths found in the Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, as well as the books of Acts and Revelation. You see, there are a lot of important things that Jesus said…and there are a lot of things that Jesus did not say, but that we think he said! Things like, “God helps those who help themselves”, and “To thine own self be true.” I can’t wait to tackle some major myths regarding the Christian faith, while at the same time bringing some life-changing truths that Jesus indeed shared with us. So be sure and invite someone this week. It could change their life. It could change your life. We’ll see you on Sunday!
