Sow the Word in 2020:

 
This year our focus is to "Sow God's Word" into our lives! Together as a congregation, we are focusing on key passages of scripture - to read, to meditate and to be transformed by the power of God's Word! Each month, there will be a theme and key verse for our focus.
 
Here is how you can dig deeper.
  1. Connect with our daily readings | These brief daily readings will dig even deeper into the theme for the week, helping you reflect on how to apply God's Word to your daily life more effectively. You can receive these readings by joining the facebook group HERE, by requesting a written copy of the readings or through an email (you can do more than one). To join by email or written copy reply to this email. Any questions contact Pastor Dawn HERE or call (402)-490-2542. 
  2. Reflect in a small group | Every Wednesday, 6:30-8:00 pm there is a discussion group where we reflect on the messages from Sunday in a small group format. Contact Pastor Dawn for more info.
  3. Join us for worship on Sundays | Each week, the Sunday message will teach further into the monthly topic. If you are unable to join us in person due to illness or work, you can catch the message through Facebook Live, through our sermons page on the website HERE or through subscribing to our Youtube channel. Content will be updated typically by Wednesday of that week if you like our Facebook page or subscribe to our Youtube channel you will be notified when content is ready for viewing. 

In August we are sowing courage into our hearts and lives through God’s Word. Because no matter what other strengths, abilities and insights are present in your life, it will take courage to live them out! Without courage, your life will settle into a pattern of minimum effort, minimum energy, and minimum influence. So it’s important to understand that God doesn’t just recommend courage—He commands it! Our key verse is Joshua 1:9 (NLT):

 
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
 
This week:
Do you know what scriptural command is repeated more than any other? “Do not be afraid” is there for us 365 times. And 12 times, God explains the reason not to be afraid: “for I am with you.”
 
The basis for our courage is knowing, acknowledging, and speaking the truth—that God is with us! And along the way, we learn to stop thinking and speaking as if He was anywhere else but with us. 
 
Learn how to get in touch with the presence of God, and remind yourself He is with you, and your courage (and encouragement) will surge!
