From cell phones to Fiat Cars, from fraternities to sororities, from Coffee House Clubs to Community groups, everyone is looking…to be “IN”! Being “IN” for most represents value and meaning,acceptance, and respect. Most of all, being “IN” represents love and purpose. Everyone, regardless to position on the job or school, to their standing in society wants to be a part of The IN Crowd!
God has different standards and different offerings for being "IN." Luke records these standards and offerings lived out by Jesus’ disciples and those who continued the model of this example in his second book, Acts of the Apostles. They learned and loved, served and sacrificed, worshipped and gave witness in such a way that they were known...and forever made the ecclesia (the church called out to live out its faith and witness in mission to each other and the world). As a result, this group of believers set the benchmark for being “IN.”
Like never before as people seek meaning and motivation for living, what people are really looking for is this group…The “IN” Church! During this series we will discover how God offered access to all to be a part of this fellowship, and how through living out their mission in word and deed they would not only change the world for the better, but also become better for themselves and for God’s glory. In the process of discovering themselves in this powerful and refreshing way, they would also have revealed to them an eternal truth that would bring them closer to God and their destiny than ever before.
Join us all four weeks in this series, and we learn about…The “IN” Church!
Traditional style worship at 9 am, Sunday school for all ages at 10 am, and contemporary style worship at 11 am.
