As we move into this week, here are a few things to share with you:
1. TOXIC 3- TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS. As the New Year continues to take shape many of us at RLC have captured a “ONE THING”, a God-sized VISION for our lives in 2014. Getting an idea for what this is. The next step is identifying possible pitfalls and hijackers which will try to sabotage our progress. To do this we began a new series entitled TOXIC. In Part 1 we focused on dealing with TOXIC THOUGHTS. In Part 2, we moved on to MANAGING TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS. This past weekend we talked about TOXIC WORDS.
It’s amazing to realize how powerful our words are. The Book of Proverbs is full of instruction on how to use our words effectively even going so far as to state that “life and death is in the power of the tongue.”
Check out the RLC | PODCAST to discover how to understand Toxic Words. RLC | Podcast from the RLC website here.
2. RLC | CONNECT. Don’t forget the number one way to stay up to date with all things are RLC is still RLC | CONNECT. That’s the weekly eNewsletter which releases on Friday mornings around 7:00am.
3. TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY. It’s hard to believe but RLC is coming up on it’s 2 year anniversary. Come celebrate this amazing occasion February 2nd.
4. MIND | SOUL | BODY.
(1 Thessalonians 5:23) “Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.”
This is the last week of our 21 day challenge and I’ve been so blessed to watch people taking the challenge to further their relationship with God and get their year started right.

5. CHURCH 101. When Real Life Church first launched in 2012, we had so many people with so many questions about our church. Not only that but there were also many who were experiencing the love of God and committing their lives to Christ at an amazing rate. We felt that these two challenges were related. People needed to know what to do in taking the first steps of their faith as well as understand if RLC was the place to do that.
To address both of these challenges we began doing something we called GROWTH TRACK. This process is intended to help people begin the journey from wherever they are and move them toward becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The first step along the way is what we called CHURCH 101. It’s a time when we discuss the power of the local church in our lives and what it’s all about.
Now, to celebrate YEAR TWO of RLC and moving into this new stage of our church, we’re launching GROWTH TRACK again beginning FEBRUARY 2nd. Join us as we move toward Christ and becoming closer to God and each other together. Fore more information about GROWTH TRACK, click here.
I’m so excited to be a part of Real Life Church and witness all that God is doing in the lives of those who have to call it home. I can’t wait to see what is coming in 2014.
Don’t forget, you’re awesome.
