Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
“Jesus Invites you to be ‘Lettuce’ Towards Greatness”
Yes, “Lettuce”! But, not the vegetable you use for salads. I’m talking about “relationship” (togetherness; friendships; teacher/students). What? Listen to what Jesus says to His disciples: “… ‘LET US (Lettuce) go over to the other side of the lake.’ So they launched out.” (Luke 8:22).
Jesus could have gone to the other side of the lake alone. But, He purposely chose to invite His disciples (students/learners) to go with Him. Why – because there was something along the way, and up ahead that He was going to use to reveal something about Himself AND teach His disciples about themselves using a real life situation. In this situation, they encountered a revealing, and refining storm. It was a storm to reveal, and refine the disciples’ faith.
Leaders, should invite disciples to journey with US; serve with us; get in the boat with us. Real life situations are great teaching moments for your disciples. Jesus’ disciples didn’t just learn from what Jesus SAID in the boat. They learned something about Jesus, and themselves from what they SAW in the storm.
As Christians, we should embrace the power of “US”! Get it?
So, LET US choose an assembling point, and get in the boat to go over towards our greatness…
Wednesday night service: We’ll be having our first “COMMUNION” of 2018! Also, Pastor BAM will equipping us with a message titled “BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP”!
Sunday Services: We’ll be having our first Sunday “COMMUNION” of 2018! Plus, AUSTIN TIALAVEA (Praise & Worship Director), will be delivering a powerful message titled: “GOD KNOWS THE WHY”.
Step into your 2018 health greatness! KEEP HYDRATED, and get energized with double “A” KANGEN water: ANNOINTED and ALKALINE! Get 8.5, 9.0, or 9.5 Ph level at our Hospitality counter before and after services. This water is FRESH (and “micro-clustered”, meaning water molecules are smaller so it is better absorbed into your organs), and is not available at any stores. Drink half your body weight in ounces EVERYDAY! NET proceeds go towards our church’s ADVANCE fund (which helps with building improvements, equipment etc.)!
We’re going to use some of our Advance fund to “refurbish” the flooring in our foyer (January 17 – 20), after Wednesday Service)! Praise God!
