COME TO THE BEACH
August 13, 2017
Nobody seems to want religion right now and it's no wonder. We've taken what God meant to be beautifully simple and made it oh-so difficult. This weekend, COME TO THE BEACH and hear Jesus' invitation to a better way - because the wrong ideas about God can make you sick...SEASICK.
THE BEST OF THE BEACH
- Genesis 1:1-3
- Matthew 11:28-30
WHAT’S MAKING YOU SICK?
A SIMPLE TRUST
- Proverbs 3:5-6
See this week’s REFOCUS questions for deeper reflection.
Also, guided meditations for “Come to the Beach” are available at youtube.com/ginghamsburgchurch
