Show Up (Hope) message from Linda Evans on May 7, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
How do you measure success?
We all have various days in our lives:
Do you know the difference between signing up and showing up?
Signing up means you have good intentions, but showing up means you have good follow through. Surprisingly, that is what most people in our lives desire - the follow through, or more simply put...
TO SHOW UP!
We are called to be a place that is open to all those in need. And guess what -we are all broken and need to show up for each other.
Kay Warren's Blueprint:
C - Care: Support people who are ill or struggling (Luke 6:36)
H - Help: Provide basic needs in times of struggle and difficulty
U - YOU!: We are all ministers to others (John 12:6, 1 Peter 4:10)
R - Remove the Stigma: It's not us and them - it is WE!
C - Communicate Honestly: Speak truth and ask for truth
H - Hope: Offered through genuine action (Hosea 2:15)
Never forget the Hope we are given through Jesus for eternity!
I have this Hope - Let's show up!

Love Big week two message from Linda Evans on February 12, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
2 Corinthians 13:5
go to church
tend to choose popular over right
don't want to be seen as radical and rarely share their faith
turn over pieces of their lives to God
think about life on earth more than life in heaven
they love God but not with all their heart, soul and mind
How do we escape lukewarm and become on fire with a Love as Big as Jesus? -
1. We deny ourselves
3. Give our whole selves over to God

3. Who do you need to love?
4. Who needs to experience the love of Jesus through you?
