God-Lived Life

What does a God-lived life look like? It looks like Jesus! As Jesus lived in our place he lived the perfect God-lived life.  As Christians we have the privilege of daily demonstrating what God looks like in how we live our lives.

Challenge Presented

For the next four months, God’s Word will be challenging us, and we will be challenging one another to live a God-lived life.  We will be focusing on four areas of our Christian lives.

  1. A life of being a disciple
  2. A life lived for others
  3. A life of hospitality
  4. A life lived shrewdly

Each month will include a special worship service which highlits one of those areas and introduces a new set of challenges that we  prayerfully commit to carrying out the rest of the month (or longer?). There are challenges for every age throughout our school and church ministry. 

A Challenge for Everyone

A new challenge card will be handed out at worship each month with five options of challenges that you as an individual, a family, or a group of families can take on for that month.  You can also download the challenge card here.  Consider which challenge you’ll accept, fill out the card, post your challenge in the back of church and discover resources to be used to help with that challenge.
