What a great day as we concluded “Solitary Confinement.”
We’ve encouraged people to join community groups, but we’ve never really expected people to join. If God expects us to grow, and he uses relationships to help us grow, then shouldn’t we make Christian relationships a priority?
Versus hyping people up today and trying to get them to join a community group, we decided to do something unthinkable: cut the service short and sign them up while they were all here! Don’t get used to shorter services, though! Jamie Parler, our Community Pastor, gave a short message that really drove it home. God expects us to grow, and we grow in the confines of Christian relationships, so go sign up now!
The picture above shows what a really effective invitation looks like – giving people a specific, clear way to respond right then and there! Praise God for the OVERWHELMING response!
The testimonies during “I Need You to Survive” also really drove the message home today! Life change is happening all around us!
Today, we worshiped to:
- Made to Worship – Chris Tomlin
- Our God – Chris Tomlin
- Unite Us Together – Travis Agnew (on North Side Worship release 10.10.10)
- I Need You to Survive – Hezekiah Walker
