OCTOBER 1 | 8 | 15
SUNDAYS AT 10:00am

 

OCTOBER 1 - STAR WARS

Whether you’re talking about Anakin or Luke the classic Star Wars story begins with a special person stuck on a boring planet wishing to break free. When they finally reach the stars, they get wrapped up in a huge war between darkness and light. Faith is the same. There’s a battle between good vs evil in each of our hearts, and we have to choose: join the resistance… or give in to the dark side.

 

OCTOBER 8 - LORD OF THE RINGS

In this classic story, the most unlikely creature (a hobbit) is chosen for the most monumental task of saving the world. Frodo must take the ring to Mordor and destroy it even though he feels too small and weak to face the powerful forces trying to stop him. The Bible paints a similar picture for us. God chooses us to be a part of something bigger than we can imagine. He calls us to be a part of story where even though we feel too small and weak for the task, He makes us strong.

 

OCTOBER 15 - THE AVENGERS

All the Marvel heroes are awesome, but one movie puts them all on a team fighting together for one purpose. At first there’s tension, but when they commit to a common purpose these superheroes learn they are better together. All of us need a team… a place to belong and where others have our back. That’s the church. It’s not just a place you go once in awhile, but a new community that can give you new life and purpose.
