You Are What You Love

The Center for Whitley County Youth was launched out of a heart for young people by Community of Hope more than 10 years ago. Today it is a thriving, influential organization that is connecting young people with vital Christian adult relationships. As we continue our conversation about spiritual disciplines, Adam Stetzel will come and share how God is using spiritual disciplines to grown young people closer to Jesus at The Center. Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we celebrate what God's doing there and how we can learn to practice spiritual disciplines in our own faith journeys.

Have you every been afraid to tell someone the truth? Have you ever wondered why you were afraid? In the book of 1st John, we read that God is in the light, and those who "walk" in the light with Him find fellowship with the children of God. If it is biblical to "live in the light", why is it so hard? Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we continue our series on the heart and look at the importance of confession in our faith journey.

The only time the disciples asked Jesus to teach them something was when they asked how to pray (Luke 11:1). Prayer often gets over-thought and is under-practiced. When we ask whether it "works" or not, we miss the point. The point of prayer is that the Creator of the Universe invites us into a relationship with Him! Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we see how prayer is where heaven meets earth in the most practical way in the most mundane of moments.

God wants to speak to you. He's willing at any time of any day. We simply need to listen. He's given us His Word, the Bible, and invites us to rediscover theLover of the biblical story each day. Then His love will flow from us. Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we explore how God speaks to us through the Bible if we're willing to listen.

What does the church have in common with the drive-thru at McDonald's? Very little, actually. We will eventually become disappointed when our expectations of the church are to provide "made-to-order" services at our personal convenience. Instead, God made us to live in community with other imperfect people who serve one another, worship God, and pursue God-honoring ministry together. Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we affirm each of our roles as vital to a healthy church filled with healthy contributors!

Love isn't always easy. Even though God's love for us never changes, we must grow in our love for Him as we face life's challenges. When we stay true in our love for God, we cross new thresholds of understanding and gain depth of perspective in life. Join us Sunday at 9:30am as we see from the story of Elijah that God wants a dynamic relationship with each of us!
