Weekly Update 09.17.17

09.17.17 | Articles | by Ken Werlein


    Countless folks have “invited Jesus into their hearts” — but a teenaged boy put it well when he said, “The real challenge is trying to figure out how do invite Jesus into my privates!”

    Temptation! If only we could follow Christ without having to wrestle with temptations — particularly with lust and sexuality.

    But God is bigger than our temptations—and He can make us better than the sum of all our failures!

    That’s why I want you to here this Sunday, as we talk about how to move from the swamp in to abundant life!

    Don’t worry. It won’t be "R-rated."  But since the subject of sexuality is unavoidable here, it’ll be an appropriate "PG-13."  

    Give your children the advantage of our awesome Kid’s and Student Ministries, and then come by yourself, or come with your spouse, or, best of all — come with a friend or two!

    Here’s 3 other things for you: 

    1. Woodlands Campus: It's not too late to sign up for FB101 this Sunday! Register here and spend a little of your Sunday getting to know the heart of your church and where you can fit into God's story at Faithbridge.

    2. The two-day KAIROS Conference has been rescheduled due to Hurricane Harvey; the new dates are Friday, October 20, and Saturday, October 21. I'm so excited for our first year to host this great event. KAIROS is an amazing opportunity for you to experience God—deeper and higher. It’s a time for emotional, mental, and spiritual healing that comes from discovering your identity in Christ. Register here.

    3. Two great classes are back October 3: How to Study the Bible & Moneywise. Get together your Grow Group, friends, and family and register together.



    P.S. Dan had a great message from 2 Samuel 9 on a lesser-known story in King David's life with plenty of immediate application of Scripture. Tune in here
