Resolve | God First Living | Part 1

Pastor Beck challenged everyone that is a part of Family Church to RESOLVE to live God-First in all of 2015! We all only have one life to live, and the one life we live here on earth will echo throughout eternity.

We all face enemies to “God-first living.” We will be tempted to put ourselves first, put others first and/or put other things before God. 1 John 5:21 states, “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”

God-first living can only flow out of a heart where God is dwelling. Whoever and whatever has your heart – has your life.

Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law

Hello Christmas Part 4

Pastor Stravato closed out our Christmas series, Hello Christmas, with his message, Twas the Days After Christmas!

He began by reminding us that we can love Christmas from a human perspective with all the traditions associated with it, and we can love Christmas from a redemptive perspective—realizing that God bought us from darkness, death and destruction with the precious birth of Jesus Christ.

Christmas is filled with deep emotions, both good and bad, and the days after Christmas can be very difficult.

We can deal with those days successfully by reminding ourselves of what Christmas really is…God’s greatest gift to the world (John 3:16).

Christ’s message to each of us in this and every Christmas season is that what is good and precious in our lives doesn’t ever need to be lost. and what is evil and undesirable in our lives can be changed.

Paul tells us in Galatians 5:22-23 that the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

There is no law against these things!

Pastor Stravato closed by telling us that Jesus Christ came into this world on Christmas so that He could deal with our past, heal our past, and keep our past in the past.

This should not be a season to be discouraged.

This is a season to be encouraged!

Jesus Wants to Build “All In” Believers!

Today Pastor Beck shared part 2 of a multi-part message titled ‘All In’.

I don’t know about you, but I can struggle to figure out at times what is ‘All In’ for Josh Taylor?

What is it for you?

After two weeks of this series, let me say I am pumped about truly committing to being ‘All In’!

The fun thing about being ‘All In’ at Family Church means I am signing up for something bigger than me.

Something I may never get a reward for.

It demands that I commit to getting out of my own way and letting God

When Belief Triggers Action

Director of Development

You truly believe. You have taken steps internally that make you uncomfortable.

So far there has not been any outward action. The biggest and first step is simply convincing yourself it is worthwhile to risk emotional pain.

What happens now? I have a pile of belief and I feel really uncomfortable. What do I do?
