This Sunday, September 18th is Back to Church Sunday in over 65,000 churches around the country. We held this event at Hopewell last year and it was a great day. This year we are trying something different. We are adding Homecoming with a special service followed outside with great food, games, contests, prizes, and live music. If you can't get the world inside the walls of the church then the church must come outside!
The Lord leads us to greater things if we will just follow Him. I heard a message recently by Louie Giglio about taking steps. He said there are three things to consider: 1. Life is short. There should be an urgency about our Christian lives. 2. God is big. He should be our only focus and drive. 3. Take the next steps. It's the only way to get here to there, across the room, or to the top of the mountain.
I love this quote, "The man at the top of the mountain was not placed there." We have to follow God in all we do. Even if it means doing things differently.
