Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: May 2016 Sermon Title: Is It Time to Get Out of the Stands and Into the Game?
Delivered On: May 29, 2016
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. ([bible]Ephesians 4:16[/bible])
Ask God to make you aware of opportunities to get out of the stands and into the game and to give you the courage to take action.
Get out of the stands and into the game! Identify one way you will get into the game. It may be joining a Growth Group or study, volunteering in a ministry, or reaching out to someone who does not yet know Jesus. Then take action. A great place to start is the Shoreline website at www.shorelinechurch.org or the Connections Center.
