A Letter To RLC>>>

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great start to your week. There are so many great things to share with you it’s hard to know where to start.
I feel so honored to pastor such an amazing, growing, life-giving church.
It’s so awesome to celebrate a record attendance this past weekend as well as 8 people giving their lives to Christ!
It never gets old watching people experience the love of God.
Thank you for your faithfulness in helping RLC carry out its vision to be a REAL church connecting REAL people to a REAL God.

Here are a few things I wanted to share with you today>>>

1.FORGIVENESS. This series has had a lot of hype and so far it has not disappointed. God is changing people’s lives, mending relationships, and setting people free as we embrace what it means to forgive and walk in forgiveness. Here are a few tweet-able moments from this past Sunday:

-Forgiveness has nothing to do with your relationship with another person. It has to with your relationship with God.

-We forgive others because they are victims too.

-Jesus is qualified to be our example on offenses.

-We can love because we have been loved.

Also, many of you asked me for the Prayer read during the message. Here it is>>>

TITLE: A DIFFERENT KIND OF PRAYER

Heavenly Father,
Help us to remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked 9 hours that day and was rushing home to cook dinner, do the laundry, help with homework, and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested man at the store who can’t even make change correctly is a worried, 19 year old college student who is balancing his apprehension of his final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans next year.

Help us remember that the scary looking bum begging for money in that same spot everyday who really ought to get a job is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmare.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow down the isles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring the moment knowing that based on the biopsy report she got back last week that this is the last year they will shop together.

Heavenly Father, remind us that of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It’s not enough to only share that with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not just to those who are close to us but to all humanity.  Help us to see people the way you do. Not a problem to avoid but a person to be loved.

fall.back4. FALL BACK.

Can you believe the holiday season is already upon us! This is one of my favorite times of the year. November is a great time for really focusing on Thankfulness and honoring those around us. Then, we head right into Christmas when we focus on the greatest gift of all, Jesus.

Don’t forget to kick off the holiday season ON TIME by setting your clocks back ONE HOUR on NOVEMBER 2ND.

It’s going to be a great season. I look forward to sharing it with you.

That’s all for this week. I look forward to seeing everyone sometime this week at a Life Group event or this Sunday.

You’re Awesome.

A Letter To RLC>>>

Hello RLC!!!
It’s a great day to be alive and a part of such an amazing move of God!
Happy Columbus Day!

Here are a few things I wanted to share with you today:

1. THANKS so much to everyone for making yesterday’s first RLC | TAILGATE PARTY so much fun. You guys are awesome. We had a great time and can’t wait to do something like this again. BTW- I’m definitely going to need a rematch!

RLC4

 

2. FORGIVENESS. Yesterday was an amazing time at RLC because we began one of the most important series this year entitled FORGIVENESS.
Remember today to take the chance and try forgiveness God’s way this week. Pray for them, Bless them, Do something good for them.
Like we said yesterday, “Be kind to your enemies. It messes with their heads.”
It was a true joy to share these life-changing truths with you and my prayer is you experience a refreshing freedom in Christ that you’ve never known before.

Here is the video we used at the end of the message.

It’s so great to be a part of this great community of believers. I look forward to seeing many of you this week and am already looking forward to celebrating with you this coming weekend.
Let’s do life together.

Well HELLO RLC!!!
Happy Monday! Hope everyone is having a great start to their week.

Here are a few things I wanted to share with you today:

1. ALTAR EGO. This past Sunday morning we talked about one of the greatest issues plaguing our success as Christ followers and in our striving to do great things with our lives… our right to be offended. Join with me this week and refuse to be offended.

2.NEXT. New series coming in two weeks. —> Transformation is in our DNA. We were created to grow, and the best kind of change leaves a permanent mark on our soul. Let’s learn together what it means to become New.

Here are two things I wanted to share with you today:

1. LIFEGROUP FALL SEMESTER. There’s something for everyone. If you haven’t yet signed up for your LifeGroup—> Click here for our group listings.

2. BAPTISM. COMING THIS SUNDAY. Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. People often have questions regarding baptism: Why be baptized? Should I be baptized again? Please take a few minutes and read the facts about baptism. If you would like to be a part of RLC’s very first baptism experience, click here for additional details and to register today. It’s going to be amazing.

Two great leadership resources

Just discovered two great resources for pastors/leaders to continue growing and becoming.

 

 

MINISTRYHANGOUTS_MAINSLIDEThe First is called Ministry Hangout.
This is a vidcast hosted by Senior Pastor Greg Surratt. He invites various leaders to come on a talk about their varied areas of expertise. It’s an amazing resource which I highly recommend.

Here’s the link.

 

 

advance

The Second is called Advance One Day.

This resource is from Next Level Church who seems to have really gone to the next level recently in offering so many great leadership resources. These leadership talks are good not just for pastors but for any CEO, entrepreneur, and is even applicable on a personal level. Highly recommended.

Here’s the link. (Click on ‘free videos’)

A Letter to RLC>>>

Hello RLC!!!
Fall is upon us and welcome back to all the college students.
We’re praying for all returning students to have a safe, fruitful, and Christ-filled year.

While it’s not officially Fall until September 22nd, as far as most people are concerned….. it’s Fall.
This  is going to be an awesome season for RLC and whirlwind of activity. I can’t wait to get everything going.

Here are a few things coming up soon:

1. NEW WORSHIP EXPERIENCE TIMES. Continuing this Sunday we will be our normal two worship experience schedule. These two worship experiences will begin at 9:30am and 11:00am. Don’t forget to arrive early to get your seat. We will be in the process soon of acquiring more seating but until then it’s a ‘first come first serve’ situation. Look forward to seeing you this weekend at 9:30am or 11:00am.

2. FIRST WEDNESDAY. Beginning in September, RLC will be hosting a worship experience on the first Wednesday of the month beginning at 7:00pm. This monthly service will be marked by an explosive worship experience that fuses the power of music, prayer, and communion. Don’t miss this time to refocus your life and find a fresh incentive to live a life of worship every day.

first.wednesday

3. LIFEGROUP EXPO. <— This is coming your way this coming Sunday immediately following both worship experiences.  There’s something for everyone. The LifeGroup Fall semester will begin September 8th but now is the time to sign up due to space being limited for many groups. Click here for a first glance at some of our group listings.  There will also be a registration kiosk in the front area before and after the worship experience for both services to help make registration more convenient.

4. NEW SERIES: TWO-GATHER. Yesterday was an amazing day of talking about relationships. I think so many people have so much going for them. They only lack one thing, relationships with the right people. The RIGHT people are with you HEART and SOUL.  God took one look at Adam and immediately noticed it wasn’t good for us to be alone. He then created Eve. From then on we have always been better together. Marriages, friendships, business partners, family… you name it. We are better when we do life together. There are some things we can only realize when we are part of a team. This weekend we will be taking the journey a little deeper and discovering what God can truly do in our lives when we do life together.
