RE·FRESH

Ray Ortlund has said, “Real Christianity is not primarily management. Real Christianity is primarily miracle.” Have you experienced real Christianity?

Too many believers are trying to manage a Christianity that exists on the outside of them. Too many young people who’ve grown up in the church are reluctantly conforming to a system that hasn’t won them from within. Too many teenagers are controlled by issues of anxiety and fear and indulgence—and don’t know what it’s like to experience freedom and peace. Too many followers of Jesus are just trying to get by in life when God has called them to a cause that is bigger than this life can contain.

We need to hit the refresh button.

We’re not just after trendy ideas. We’re not just after a cool experience. We need a Supernatural Person. Paul writes, “Our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction” (1 Thess. 1:5). Do you know this power? Have you experienced full conviction? This only comes from the Holy Spirit.

Join us for this year’s Youth Camp as we seek the ministry of the Spirit in our lives—to make us new, to transform us, to teach us how to live, and to empower us for God’s mission in this world.

“that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:20)

Summer Bible Jam 2015

Register Your Group

This summer, our Small Group Ministry will be taking a break. But we’ll be using this time to focus on two things: 1) normalizing personal Bible reading, and 2) normalizing Christians getting together to discuss God’s Word.

Sometimes we think of “discipleship” as something that takes place when we evangelize lost people, or the work that’s performed by professionals through ministry programs. But every disciple is called to the process of discipleship, and every disciple is called to be a disciple-maker. Put simply: Christians follow Jesus, and they help others follow him as well. 

Promoting these practices is the goal of our Summer Bible Jam.

Here’s what you need:

  1. A Bible Reading Plan
  2. 2 or 3 other believers to form your discipleship group

 

BIBLE READING PLANS

Choose one of these tracks to follow this summer.

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68)

 

DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS

When Paul describes how the church is to grow, he presents a vision that involves every believer’s contribution:

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16)

Discipleship groups are designed to put this into practice. They’re simply settings for gathering with other believers in order to speak the truth in love to one another, that the body might grow. You set the meeting time and place, how frequently your group gets together, whatever works best for you. But the goal is spending time sharing life and talking about what matters most.

Who could get together?

  • Fathers & Sons
  • Mothers & Daughters
  • Families
  • Men with Men
  • Women with Women
  • College Students
  • Teenagers with Teenagers
  • Friends you haven’t connected with recently
  • Co-workers
  • Leaders with fellow leaders

 

Four Questions

Here are four questions to ask when you meet and discuss what you have read. Take turns each meeting having someone lead through the questions.

  1. What does this passage say about God?
  2. What does this passage say about humanity?
  3. What does this passage say about the Gospel?
  4. How does this passage apply to my life?

Singles Sermon Series

Sermon-Graphic-FEATURED

God intends to use your singleness in radical ways for his glory and your good. More specifically, God intends that your season of singleness be a glorious time of undivided devotion to Christ and undistracted ministry to others. And James wants to help you experience just that. In the series, The Gospel Through You, this powerful letter exhorts us to see the gospel work through us in ways that lead to the kind of true life and spiritual maturity we are meant to enjoy as Christian singles. I hope you will join us for this series and experience more of God in your life as the good news of Jesus Christ works through you.

We meet every 2nd Saturday of the month in room 204 for worship, teaching and fellowship. Desserts are provided. For more info contact jason@lakeviewchristiancenter.com
