Are you for real???

  2. Thanks to Chris & Katie for helping frost cookies!
  3. We hope to see all of you and your families at the open house TOMORROW (Wed.) night anytime between 6:00-8:30.  My table is already overflowing with deliciousness and half the food isn't even set out yet! =D
  4. Have you been thinking about Kevin's convicting topic he spoke on last Sunday?  Are you living a true authentic life?  A Christian life 24/7?  Not coming to impress Kevin & I on Sundays and then going back to "real" life Monday through Saturday...but being the same person always...with all people.  Are you kind to the annoying kid in your English class? Self-controlled with your parents when you feel like screaming at them? Patient with your friend shoe just doesn't get it?  Joyful even when you're not having the best day?  (check out GALATIONS 5:22-23.)  This is the life Jesus is calling us to.  If you decide you want to live a Christian life you canNOT do it half-heartedly.  You're either all in (every hour of every day of every week) or all out.  Go out of your way this week to help out the "stinky" kid who has no friends or keep your fists to yourself when that same "jerk" is harrassing you for the millionth time.  Are you FOR REAL?
