We Are Offered Peace

On Sunday we are beginning a new series of messages called… “What Following Jesus Means.” We’re looking at five words that describe what it means to be a follower of Jesus. The first word is “Peace,” in a message entitled “We are offered Peace.”
What is your peace level in this chaotic world we live in? Have any of you been watching the news lately? If you continually take in all this bad news day after day the results are predictably toxic.
This week we will look at what Paul wrote in Philippians 4:2-9. He shares four ways to manage stress and find the peace of God in the midst of bad news and chaos around us. I especially like what Paul said in Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV)
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things…And the God of peace will be with you.”
Join us as we talk about the love, joy and especially the peace that God gives.
