Colossians 4:2-6 (NIV)

2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Prayer Focus

Join us in praying for a lead pastor that seeks God with his whole heart, devoted to Him through prayer, worship, and ministry.

Worship Focus

Worship God as the One who not only has the compassion to listen to our prayers, but the power to answer them. May we take this seriously and devote ourselves to prayer.

ABOUT THIS SERMON SERIES

Pause for a moment and think about your roots. Where do your people come from? How are your genetic roots reflected in how you look, your personality, your outlook on the world? If you’re doing this study with others, have everyone talk about where they were born. Have you ever had to “pull up roots” and move? What was that like for you? Do you feel rooted in the place where you are now? Is having a sense of being rooted important to you? Why?

Pause for a moment and think about your roots. Where do your people come from? How are your genetic roots reflected in how you look, your personality, your outlook on the world? If you’re doing this study with others, have everyone talk about where they were born. Have you ever had to “pull up roots” and move? What was that like for you? Do you feel rooted in the place where you are now? Is having a sense of being rooted important to you? Why?

Now think about the early Christ-followers in the first century. They were people like you and me, concerned about many of the same things that concern us. They dealt with family dynamics and desired to interact wisely with the world around them. They searched for meaning in life and tried to discern what is true and good.

Paul’s letter to Colossae was written during the beginning stages of Christianity. These early disciples didn’t have Bibles like we do today, so they relied upon letters from people they trusted to help them navigate their way. A letter from a trusted authority would go a long way in helping them feel secure about their beliefs as Christ-followers. This letter from Paul aimed to help its readers remain focused on Christ as they lived their lives. We need to hear Paul’s powerful words today. Say the following verses out loud and take them in:

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
-Colossians 2:6-7*

We have an opportunity this summer to grow together as disciples who follow Jesus. Let us find our roots in Jesus, as we are built up and strengthened as a church.

Sharing Your Hope With Others

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5 AT 6:30 P.M.

Everyone wants to leave a legacy, but one way to make an eternal impact is to bring someone else into God's family. Did you know that, if you are a Christian, you are an ambassador of Jesus Christ? You may not feel qualified to do this because you feel you lack certain character traits or the right personality. This class will give you confidence and practical tools to share your hope with others.

“The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty” (Proverbs 21:5 ESV) 



 “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty” (Proverbs 21:5 ESV)

“As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.” (1Tim 6:17-19 ESV)

As we start our journey as a church in the new fiscal year, we have established our budget so that we may be diligent, as the scripture says. This diligence is how we intend to use the finances God brings to us through you. The 2021-22 budget is $7,500,000, and we have spread the giving out by month so we can track our progress. 

If our giving exceeds the budget, that will create an opportunity to fund additional ministry needs and missional endeavors that we are ready to execute.

We are greatly encouraged and humbled with the response to last weekend’s love offering to the Children’s appeal to give to Abilities Workshop which is a nonprofit organization for those with special needs. To date, a total of $4,448.35 has been collected for this worthy cause. A great big thank you to all who contributed.

Northland family, consider becoming a recurring giver so that you can be assured that you are consistently supporting your church. We are committed to stewarding your generosity in the furtherance of His Kingdom by “Engaging people to be Fully Alive in Jesus.”

Thank you for partnering with us.
