“Seasons,” a word that describes a “time of the year” where we change from one season to the next. SEASONS…also has the idea of a period of time. We all walk through life seasons. Scripture even speaks about seasons.
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.” Ecclesiastes 3
Your current season will not last forever. It might have something incredible that you do not want to miss! The bottom line: God wants us to rely on him through every season. Will we have the courage to trust?
Many define success by what you achieve and possess. Others define success by how much wealth, education, or acclaim you have acquired. Others interpret success with a career that fulfills or personal goals that have been reached. Still, others outline success as walking away from standard definitions and choosing to live on less.
What if success is different than the standard list?
Let’s look at success through a different lens – a sharper lens that brings a clear focus. Through the investigation of obscure biblical characters, we will discover profound outcomes that bring success.
Thanks for joining us as our Family Ministry Pastor, Dan McInnes speaks on the Big Idea: You don’t need to be the most significant person to be part of something significant!
Sunday, September 2nd
Grab your Bible, pull up a chair, and discover what Scripture says about the best way to live our lives. It is going to be a character building summer at ValleyPoint as we investigate the qualities that God produces in the lives of those who “walk by the Spirit.” Together, we will be encouraged to say “no” to the flesh and “yes” to strengthening our friendship with God, increasing the influence we have on others, and living our best spiritual year.
This summer, we focus our attention on cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. These nine flavors combine for one great tasting piece of fruit!
“Generosity is at its core a lifestyle, a lifestyle in which we share all that we have, are, and ever will become as a demonstration of God’s love a response to God’s grace.” (Willard & Sheppard, Contagious Christianity, 2012, p. 18).
What happens when generosity becomes a way of life? What happens when a group of people choose generosity over scarcity? What happens when followers of Jesus hold what they have with open hands? What is the potential of a generous faith community?
Join ValleyPoint Church for a three-week series called “Theology of Generosity.” This series will share the culture of giving at ValleyPoint, point to generosity as a fruit of God’s grace – the product of a transformed heart, and challenge our church to become a community of contagious generosity.
