Opportunity to Defy Status Quo

Many of us go about our lives too comfortably.  We become used to the rhythm of our routines.  Goals, plans, and dreams often take a back seat to immediate needs.  Our lives so easily become self-centered, and "normal".

But the call to be Christ-like demands more than the status quo.  Christ's followers didn't have cozy routines; They had radical lifestyles, leaving their homes and comfort to study under Jesus.  They learned from Jesus as he healed the sick, forgave offenses, and restored hope.  When they understood who Jesus is, they were sent out in teams to get messy in people's lives, to tell others about Jesus, to heal the sick, and to restore hope. 

This weekend, The SOURCE is following our commitment to our core values of
                                    EXPECTANT PRAYER
                  CHRIST-LIKE SERVICE                        
                                           RELATIONAL OUTREACH
by teaming up with Time To Revive to begin building relationships with families in the neighborhoods that surround us.

Be bold, be brave, and step outside your comfort zone with us this Saturday to live radically for Christ.  Even if you attend another congregation, please feel free to come and join us for this training and outreach.  You'll learn a method of reaching your neighbors that you can take to your own church and neighborhood.  We will be meeting people in our neighborhood, becoming aware of their needs, asking to pray with them, and following up with those who are responsive.  Begin praying now for God to prepare the hearts of those we will meet, that they will be open to talking with us.
