• Gen. 1:27 (LB)
We were created with the capacity to connect with God
3 Ways Mankind Has Tried to Reach God
• The Rocket of Relatives
• The Rocket of our own Rating System
• Rom. 3:23 (NIV)
...we are all doing our own thing. We are pretty much immersed in our own little world. But, every once in a while an event comes along that causes us to push the pause button on our inwardness and to open our eyes and see all that is going on around us. Every so often an event rocks our world and sort of connects us all together. I'm talking about one of those "Where were you when" type of events. Now, none of us will ever forget where we were on September 11, 2001 when we first heard the news that our nation had been attacked. Our whole country seemed to connect at that moment because of the tragedy. I'm starting a new series today that I am calling "Time Machine". We are going to go back in time to look at some of these events that connected us all together. We are going to learn some powerful and timeless truths from God's Word that I think will help you connect to God in a deeper way. We are also going to learn how to connect to each other on a deeper level. Now, to add to the weekend series we've also put together a video series for all of our small groups and we have a study guide that will really help you develop your walk with Christ, to connect to Him on a deep level, to grow in your character and also connect to others on a deeper level. I want you to take out of your program right now this insert. It says "Connect It All Together." We had a thousand homes last week kick this off. They showed the vision video in their home of the vision we believe God could bring about in this community as everyone of us showers this community with acts of love and kindness and compassion in October. But, to get ready for that, we are doing this series and we are also doing the small group curriculum. We want all of our small groups to go through this for the next six weeks. If you are not in one of those groups, if you are not one of the 10,000 people I hope you will sign up on this because I know there is a home in your area, right in your neighborhood who is showing this video series and you can go just next door probably or right down the street and be involved in this. If you sign up on this then we will let you know where the closest home to you is. I just hope everyone of you will not only come on the weekends, but you will also add to what you are learning on the weekends by being in one of these 1,000 small groups in our community and all the surrounding communities around here. It'll help us get ready to make a difference in this community in a big way.
