Peter left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man.
That is the point! Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God’s extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today.
For Pete’s Sake
The movement from one season to the next often brings excitement, passion, and a plethora of innovation. At the same time, new seasons also initiate feelings of sadness, anxiety, and trepidation. Moving from anxiousness to enthusiasm requires careful forethought and time with God. Both activities require preparation.
Use “Reflections and Reveries” to prepare yourself to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God as 2019 transitions from summer to fall. “Reflections” bring gratitude…even humility. “Reveries” provide time to dream about the future.
Reflections and Reveries
Join us as our Associate Pastor, Ben Jones, explores the question, “What do I do when God is silent?”
Sunday, September 1st
Words matter! Words can easily be lost because things rarely remain the same. Times change. People change. Feelings change. Ancient expressions that once reflected beauty and depth can now end conversations…quickly. Try inserting the word “sin” in your next chat and see what happens!
Is it possible that we sometimes forget valuable information that once helped? Reclaiming Sacred Words is about finding joy in faith-filled expressions and knowing how to share those words with others compassionately.
Reclaiming Sacred Words
What happens when generosity becomes a way of life? What happens when a group of people chooses 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?
This series will share the culture of giving at ValleyPoint, layout the theology of generosity which ValleyPoint holds, and challenge our church to continue our journey of becoming a community of contagious generosity.
