When I was a kid we just had to have Slinkys, hula hoops, slip & slides and anything else by Wham-O! Then when my kids were little, they just had to have Beanie Babies, Tamagotchis and Pokémons. Most trends are a big deal for a little while but over time they lose their luster. While fashions and fads come and go, there is one thing that has never stopped or slowed down since it made its debut. “The church” was created 2000 years ago. Since then it has been attacked, pronounced dead and written off, yet today it continues to not just survive but to thrive.
What makes a church or some organizations so radically resilient? How do God’s guys buck the trend and stay strong over the long haul? What can the 21st century church learn from the 1st century church? Join us this Sunday as we answer these questions with a new series called Unstoppable: Building A Team That Can’t Lose. As we examine Acts 1:20-26, we will discover four things that are required to build a church or organization that is unstoppable. I want to strongly urge you to join us as we will be sharing some big and exciting news about some out of the box changes on the horizon at North Ridge. Not to be dramatic but I’m telling you I feel this initiative will require the biggest step of faith in our church’s history. In return, however, I believe it offers the prospect of an incredible future for our church that will help thousands to know and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
It’s going to be a wild but wonderful weekend! I can’t wait to see you on Sunday, dive deep into God’s Word and share what we sense God has up His sleeve for our amazing unstoppable church. I can say “It’s way bigger and better than a Slinky”! Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you and your crew on Sunday. Just remember…we are better together.
Sure Do Love You,
