A Great Beginning

It's quite difficult to not put "sex" in the subject line of this email, but then your spam filters would kick it into junk mail and that would not be a good thing. However, it is a good thing that we are talking about sex in the church, after all, it's all around us; magazines, internet, TV, movies and advertisements.  It's about time the church discusses it, since God is the author of our sexuality.

In just one week, the buzz is huge.  So DO NOT MISS this weekend!  Just to remind you, we have service times on Saturday night at 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday morning at 9:15 and 11:15 a.m.  We have children's (nursery – 5th grade) programming and Junior High (6th –8th grade) at all 3 service times.  

What is amazing is how often in the realm of relationships we'll "settle" or compromise.  I see it more so with women.  Often someone is looking for "Mr. Right," but they settle for "Mr. Right Now."  This compromise only leads to hurt, emotional drama and trauma.  God DOES have something better in store.  

Ultimately, what a man AND a woman desire is intimacy.  Yet, societally we have substituted sex, something easily obtainable, for that which seems elusive, deep intimacy with another human being.  Do not miss this weekend as we continue to unpack timeless truth from God's Word.  Plus, bring a friend!  

See you this weekend,
