    Touches & Temple
    By: Team
    God asks us to be broad stewards of many things that he has poured into our lives. The 6Ts give us a glimpse into a broader approach to stewardship that goes far beyond money. The following message is the third and fourth Ts in the series.
    TOUCH: Our culture defines value by net-worth but God sees value in relationships, and he desires to use those relationships as avenues for demonstrating His love.
    TEMPLE: We are to see ourselves as the holy dwelling place of God. Yet, our culture has traded the holiness of godly morality and sexual purity for temporal gratification.

    Task – Talents 2016
    6t-web-bannersWhen speaking of stewardship we often limit the discussion to money. However, God has much more for us to steward, and if we don't first give ourselves to these things the giving of our money will never be as he asks. This message introduces the 6Ts, and addresses the first two in detail.
    Task - Are you shortchanging God in your life pursuits? God want you engaged in fulfilling your divine purpose, not chasing self-centered dreams.
    Talents - Are you shortchanging God in utilizing your abilities? If you are using your abilities for selfish purposes instead of for God you are stealing from Him.

    Why Should I Be The Church
    message-why-should-i-go-to-churchWhen we ask, "Why should I go to church?", we are asking the wrong question, a question that suggests a distorted view of what the church is ... either a place on a map, or a time on a schedule.
    What we ought to ask is, "Why should I be the church?" This is about identity and nature, and has implications for what the church is and does.
