July 28th – August 25th, 2019

 
Many are familiar with Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs. The Bible addresses all of these needs and shows us how to live a better life, a life that pleases God and best fulfills us. Join us Sundays as we seek a better life.
 
July 28 – Why you need a church (Acts 2:41-42, 46, 1 Peter 1:3) Every Sunday about 120 million Americans go to a church worship service. Why? The church is God’s forever family – everything else will end. Our church family helps us to gain and keep perspective, face our problems, build faith and character, and find meaning and purpose.
 
August 4 – Why you need others (Romans 12:5, Hebrews 10:25) All of us need to be comforted and to be challenged. We are made with a need for others to help create and validate our reality. There is safety in numbers. There is wisdom in many counselors. We “become” and “belong” – find meaning and purpose – with others.
 
August 11 – Sharing real hope (1 Peter 3:15, 2:12, 2 Timothy 1:7-8) God has planted eternity in the human heart. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we become part of God’s forever family and receive a 2-part mission: to grow Christ’s character in us and to introduce others to the Source of our Hope – Jesus. We’re to “cultivate” eternity.
 
August 18 – Why you need to worship (Mark 12:29-30, Deuteronomy 31:12-13) People all over the planet express their love and gratitude to God. Our eyes are drawn to the heavens as our hearts and minds consider the meaning and purpose of life. Our everyday existence – our “ordinary” – becomes “extraordinary” when lifted by God’s Presence.
 
August 25 – The secret to a great life (Matthew 23:11-12, John 13:1-12) We all have a S-H-A-P-E: Spiritual gift, Heart, Abilities, Personality, Experiences. You were made to make a difference. It’s like my sailboat – it’s not a fishing or power boat, but when the sail is trimmed the hull hums with power. Discover your SHAPE and life will “hum” with God’s power.
