January 7 – February 11
Why Be Normal?
Many Christians appear to others as just everyday normal people. Because these Christians don’t stand out as different or someone special, their effectiveness at helping anyone else find Christ is minimal. After all, if we look, act, and believe the same as everyone around us what marks us as different? No wonder our Christian faith has little impact on those around us. Others think, “Your marriage, kids, finances, purpose, etc., look no different than mine. In fact, in some cases, it’s worse! Why would I want to be like you?” Christianity in the first century stood out because it was different. Not just different…it was flat out strange to others during that time. To reach others and experience something fulfilling, we must have a faith that is authentic, unique and different. We need Stranger Things. Join us for our new series starting January 7 focused on 1 Peter, as we learn to find purpose and fulfill our mission … in beautiful, joyous, unusual, and yes, a strange way.
