Being All In

We are smack dab in the middle of a series @ NC about being all in, with our time, talent and resources. I spent the first two weeks talking about giving, the discipline and the grace in how we give our money back to God. I am pumped that so many people have been open to what we are trying to communicate at New Community.

The next two weeks, we are going to be discussing how christ-followers should be all in with their time and talent. this weekend, we will be inviting everyone to be all in with their time. To be completely aware of where their time goes, but also to be intentional about carving out time for authentic community with other Christ-followers. We will be playing with poker chips and should be great.

Next week, we will be discussing how to be all in with our talent. Using the gifts God gave us to expand the local church.

As i have been studying and preparing for this series, it has also challenged me to make sure i am leading the way when it comes to being all in with my time, talent and resources. It has helped Dawn and i to prioritize what is important and a reality check when it comes to us investing in to the lives of others.

After 23 months of leading New Community, we have never been so excited about the future and we are thrilled about being ALL IN.

Grace and Peace...
