August 28, 2016 – We Are Created to Worship

Rev. Gary Moore

Key Points:

  • In this changing season of CCCN, Rev. Moore speaks of the application of Acts 2.
  • Building of Apostles.  We are all ligaments, parts that build up the church.
  • We tend to be pastor-centric, relying on pastors to lead all ministries.  Pastor is the only one growing, the body allowing the weakening of the ligaments and parts.  This is unsustainable.
  • We need new wine-skins, to adapt to how to build disciples. We are not reaching the world by staying within the confines of the building walls.  The world is not coming to church to discover Jesus. The church and apostles needs to take Jesus to the world.
  • The seeds need to be sewn outside the walls.  The worldly ground is toxic, but the blood of Jesus can grow.  We must plants to seeds.

August 7, 2016 – Vaporous

Pastor Patrick Jenkins

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 9

Key Points:

  • Ecclesiastes tends to be repetitive.
  • Life is vaporous: Life is something passing, fleeting.  However life is not meaningless. Our lives are not meaningless.
  • Humans, by nature, are really good at remembering and forgetting things.  We are great at remembering things that are futile.  We are experts at forgetting the most important things in life.  We hold on to hurts and hates, but forget good things. Yet hungry for good experiences.
  • Better to be a living dog then a dead lion?  Dogs were a derogatory reference, as opposed to lion – viewed as noble and majestic.  When you’re dead, nothing matters.  There’s a difference in things that happen in your life, than the fact that we have life!
  • Jesus does not promise the following him good things will happen; in fact states there will be trouble.  He does promise abundant life.  Let us not judge our lives by things that has happened.
