Most of Jesus' best conversations happened along the shoreline. He had a way of inviting followers into a bigger story and greater life purpose. During the month of August you're invited to COME TO THE BEACH - and experience your own shoreline encounter with Jesus. Join us for worship this weekend!

REFOCUS QUESTIONS...


Most of Jesus’ best conversations happened along the shoreline. He had a way of inviting followers into a bigger story and greater life purpose. During the month of August you’re invited to COME TO THE BEACH – and experience your own shoreline encounter with Jesus.

COME TO THE BEACH

MONDAY: Genesis 1:1-10
Water is often an important part of our God story. Do you like water? Does going to the beach (ocean, lake, pool or otherwise) connect you to God? Is water part of your God story?

TUESDAY: Matthew 4:18-22
Jesus calls leaders, not just followers. Are you a leader? Why or why not? How is God asking you to step up and lead?

WEDNESDAY: Exodus 14:21-31
God used water to save God’s people. What happens in this story? How are God’s people saved? What happens to the Egyptians? What does this story tell us about God? What does it tell us about ourselves?

THURSDAY: Matthew 3:13-17
Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River. Have you ever been baptized? What is your experience of baptism? You are a beloved son or daughter of God. Is it time to recommit yourself to Jesus? Consider being baptized in the river on Sunday, August 13. Email [email protected] for more details.

FRIDAY: Psalm 65
Water is powerful! Have you ever experienced the power of water? Have you seen water give life? Have you seen water destroy life? How does the power of water shape your understanding of God?

SATURDAY: Matthew 14:22-33
Peter is courageous. What courageous decision do you need to make? Is it time to get out of the boat? Name your fears and doubts. Ask God to give you the courage to say a “reckless” yes.

SUNDAY: John 1:35-51
Jesus calls leaders in the movement we call Christianity. What do you learn about these leaders? Do you see yourself in this story? How is Jesus calling you to join the movement?
