A Letter to RLC>>>

Hello RLC!
What a great weekend we have had together. This past Sunday was a true joy. Thank you to everyone for making it such a great success.

As we move into this week, here are a few things to share with you:

1. TOXIC 1- TOXIC THOUGHTS. 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. The first part of the series talked about dealing with TOXIC THOUGHTS. We all sometimes deal with negative, discontent, fearful, and critical thoughts. Check out the RLC | PODCAST to discover how to deal with thoughts like these and how to replace them with the Word of God. 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.

 


new.service.times13.  TWO WORSHIP EXPERIENCE TIMES. Don’t forget our TWO WORSHIP EXPERIENCE SCHEDULE. 9:30AM and 11:00AM. For a good seat be sure to arrive early.

 

 


21214. 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 past Sunday began our 21 Day Challenge we’re calling MIND | SOUL | BODY. The idea is to not only honor God with the first fruits of your year by fasting but incorporating everything in your life. For more information on this check out this link.

The first seven days we are diving into the Word of God BIG TIME. I read a study recently which said 86% of Christians do not read their Bible on a regular basis. Start of 2014 by making a commitment to yourself to not fall into that category. Here is the first seven day list:

Day 1: Acts 1-11
Day 2: Acts 12-22
Day 3: Acts 23 – Romans 4
Day 4: Romans 5-16
Day 5: 1 Corinthians 1-10
Day 6: 1 Corinthians 11 – 2 Corinthians 3
Day 7: 2 Corinthians 4 – 13


discover.special 5. SPECIAL DISCOVER | RLC TIME. Due to the possible bad weather, we rescheduled the monthly DISCOVER | RLC for this coming Sunday (1.12.14). Join Pastor Brandon and hear the story of RLC, the vision and mission of RLC, and what the future holds. We also have a great time of QandA as well as a FREE meal.  Check out this link for all details and how you can register for this free, engaging event.

 

 


first.wednesday 6. FIRST WEDNESDAY IS BACK. First Wednesday is coming this Wednesday night at 7:00pm.

This is something the RLC Family enjoys every month. This subject of this month’s FW is: FIRST.

Enjoy a great time of worship, prayer, Bible teaching, and communion.


 

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.

Hello RLC!
What a great weekend we have had together. This past Sunday was a true joy. Thank you to everyone for making it such a great success.

As we move into this week, here are a few things to share with you:

One_Thing_-_Banner_11. HAPPY NEW YEAR: ONE THING. This past Sunday ended one of the greatest year’s in our churches history. There are so many WINS it’s impossible to list them all here.
While we celebrate each of them it’s also vitally important we don’t forget to look ahead and plan now to have the best 2014 possible. This year can be your best year ever if it’s your best year spiritually. This past weekend we challenged each other to not make a long “New Year’s Resolution List”. Rather to take one thing or idea and dedicate it to God as a way to get closer to Him this year. For more info on this, check out the RLC | Podcast from the RLC website here.

21-days4. 21 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING. Every year, the Staff of RLC come together to give the FirstFruits of our year back to God and dedicate 21 days in January as a time of increased Prayer and Fasting. During this time we pray for various things and believe God to do amazing things in our lives, our family, our church, our community, and our nation. For more information about this and how you can join this movement, check out the resource page on our website here.  This time of prayer and fasting begins this Sunday, January 5th.

A Letter to RLC>>>

Hello RLC!
What a great weekend we have had together. So many WINS to celebrate.
Here are a few things I want to share with you as we move into this week…

As we move into this week, here are a few things to share with you:

1. PERSPECTIVE. This past Sunday had many high moments for me. One was continuing our series where we are talking about seeing our lives through different lenses. It’s so easy to have tunnel vision and see success through such a narrow scope. Having the right perspective can so crucial to understanding what God is doing in your life.

A couple of tweetable moments were:

  • “Success is when those who know you best love and respect you the most.” -John Maxwell
  • Being Christ-Like means thinking with the same motivation as Christ: Love God. Love others.
  • Happiness is on the outside. Joy is from the inside.

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. DISCOVER | YOUR PLACE. Discover Your Place is a strategic night designed for you to dig into who you are, how you are, and how God has made you to fit into Real Life Church.  Through an engaging, hands-on process, you’ll discover your strengths, weaknesses, passions, and giftings, and explore how those things combine perfectly to create a ministry place for you!  You will leave enlightened, equipped, and inspired to take your place in the Body of Christ! *Dinner & Child Care Included!

When:  THIS SUNDAY NIGHT
Time:   6:00 -7:30 pm
Who can attend: Everyone

4. BABY DEDICATION. This past Sunday was an amazing milestone at RLC. We celebrated life as we dedication three children to the Lord. This comes form 1 Samuel when Hannah dedicated her son Samuel back to God. It was an amazing moment for all of us. Below are some pics from this great event. Thank you to everyone who made it possible.

That’s it for this week.

Continue to pray with us for God to continue to give RLC favor as we make a difference in our city.

Let’s change the world together.

New Series: Perspective

PERSPECTIVE: a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.

Not long ago I was waiting to walk across the street at a crosswalk. Suddenly a guy walks right past me and into the street. Without thinking I grab and push him back onto the sidewalk just in time before he was hit by an oncoming car.
He had been looking at his phone and didn’t realize what was happening or notice the car. All he knew was some guy just threw him down on the sidewalk. This guy jumps up and begins yelling at me to take it easy. Before I could speak, a lady who had been watching everything spoke up and said, “That guy just saved your life. You were about to be hit by a car.” This guy froze and you could see him begin to understand what really happened.  He quickly turned from angry to embarrassed and thankful because he began to look at the event from a different perspective.

How many things in our lives would we see differently if we only had a different perspective.

  • The loss of a job.
  • The loss of a relationship.
  • The addition of financial trouble.
  • The added stress of the holidays.
  • Those 25 extra pounds we said we’d never gain back.

Here are a few key thoughts we’re going to begin discussing beginning this Sunday at Real Life Church:

Perception is the key to so many issues in our lives.
There’s so much more going on than we usually see. It takes a different perception to understand a lot of it.

Bad perception is the key to most conflict in our lives.
Most conflict comes from misunderstands or the inability to objectively look at a situation from other points of view. We’re going to discover how Jesus as a master communicator constantly used various parables and stories to relate the same spiritual truth from different perspectives.

Correct perception can be the key to your success. 
Concerning my intimidation of others, lady once told me, “If they kill you they can’t eat you.” What she meant was, “What’s the worst that can happen if you at least try?”  Having the right mindset when you are going through a tough situation is critical.

Understand the WHY behind the WHAT.
Sometimes it’s better to not take things at face value. Understanding why something is the way it is can help you appreciate why you are doing it.

I’m looking forward to sharing this and so much more with you beginning this Sunday at RLC.

There’s going to be a lot of TWEETABLE moments for us to share.

A Different Kind of Prayer>>>

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.
