While most of our lives are lived in the 937, our greater calling is to share God's heart for the global community. Attempting to change the world is futile, however, unless God first changes our hearts to love as God has so amazingly loved. Join us in worship this weekend for stories, songs and communion at God's great table. An unforgettable hour of sharing the heart of God.

MONDAY: John 3:16-21
God loves the whole world! What about you? Do you love people throughout the world? Is it a struggle to love the whole world? Has God ever “gone global” in you?

TUESDAY: Genesis 1:1-2:3
God created heaven and earth and said that it was good, very good. When you think about all that God created, what comes to mind? Are you overwhelmed or in awe of the vastness of the earth and the universe?

WEDNESDAY:
Isaiah 40:12-15 You are one in 7 billion. What do you think about your place in this world? How does that change your picture of God? Of others?

THURSDAY: Ephesians 3:14-21
God’s power is God’s love. Think through your life and the lives of the people you know—how is God’s love passed through generation after generation? What are you doing to help pass that love?

FRIDAY: Acts 1:4-8
We are called to love the 937 AND the ends of the earth. What are some practical ways that you are going global without ignoring the local? How has this message series changed your understanding of Jesus’ mission in the world?

SATURDAY: John 4:15, 39-42
Jesus went to uncomfortable places and changed the lives of people who were considered outsiders. What happened to the Samaritan woman when she received Jesus’ love for her? Have you ever shared Jesus’ love with people that make you uncomfortable or gone to places that make you uncomfortable?

SUNDAY: Revelation 5:11-14
In the last book of the Bible God gives us a big picture of what God is doing in the world. What would it mean for every “creature” to give honor, power and glory to Jesus the “Lamb”? Where do you see Jesus at work in the world?
