Leaps of Faith

Have you ever been scared to take a leap of faith? I sure have. The questions and doubt try to take over. This February as we worship, we will learn to be BRAVE with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

How do we do that? Sometimes it means we just try it! We practice it and we get better at it. February will be our month to experiment and practice being brave in...

Prayer: Each February Thursday morning from 7:15a-8:15a, I will be at Koco Java for a time of prayer. All are welcome to join me, or just to pop in and share a prayer need. Can't come? That's OK. What might happen if you experimented with praying out loud in a group or one on one with someone?

Presence: I'm challenging you to be present this month! Be present in worship each Sunday. Be present at the pancake supper. Be present at the Ash Wednesday service. Be present in Sunday school for the first time. Be present in the Body of Christ in a new way.

Gifts: During February, experiment with tithing - giving 10% of your income back to God as a gift to the local church. Maybe you need to start with a step up to tithing one source of income. Maybe you can step into tithing all of you income. Try it out. See what happens when we return to God the gifts we are given.

Service: Experiment with what it means to be a servant leader. Where might your faith be stretched if you gave 2 hours of time each week to serve in the church?

Witness: Do you know how to share your faith story? What conversation doors might open if each week you shared with someone one way that God has been working in your life?

None of us are perfect at any of these things, but that is why we practice! Practice won't make us perfect, it will simply make us better, stronger, braver. So this month, let's practice. Let's experiment! Let's be brave!


Blessings,
Pastor Kris
