Today’s service started our brand new series, “Marriage by the Book,” and today’s service was all about this big idea: “Don’t Marry the Wrong Person.”

Next to following Jesus, the most important decision anyone will make is who he or she will decide to marry.  In this message, “Don’t Marry the Wrong Person,” Jeff makes sure that all know what critical qualifications your future mate should be.

We have so many singles at our church, I truly prayed that people would allow this message to resonate within them.  If all of these singles truly dedicated themselves to allowing God be involved in the mate-selection business, God would build some incredible families through their dedication.

And for all of the married folk out there, Jeff answered the question, “What if I am married to the wrong person already?”  He hit it between the eyes when he said make sure you are being the right person.  Are you loving God?  Are you showing honor to your spouse? Are you sacrificing for your spouse?

Yesterday, we worshiped to:

  • O Praise Him – David Crowder Band
  • Made to Worship – Chris Tomlin
  • Your Home – Travis Agnew
  • Made Me Glad – Miriam Webster (Hillsong)
  • Came to My Rescue (Reprise) – Hillsong United

All of our services have been growing the last few weeks, whoever you guests are, we are so glad you are worshiping with us!  If we can help you take the next step, make sure you let us help you get connected.

Just a funny side note: Jeff gave me these fill in the blanks and scripture passages last week to put up on the screen for him.  At Sunday morning around 8, he asked, “Trav, did I give you Galatians 5:12 for the last verse?”


“It’s supposed to be Ephesians 5:3.”

“Well, what does Galatians 5:12 say?”

See for yourself:

As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!  – Galatians 5:12

While this verse really wasn’t intended for this message, it might be helpful for some with dating issues.  Either way, that’s funny.  I don’t care who you are, that is funny.
