November 2007 - God Rocks!
Are you ready to ground yourself in the constant, non-changing, solid, everlasting, foundational Truth that “God Rocks”? If so, join us each week as we explore a different meaning of that phrase, culminating the month with a very special activity. This month will surely rock at [name of your center]-- so don’t miss a Sunday!
Talk 1 - “Founded on the Rock”
The Master Teacher Jesus once said, “But whoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.” Today we will delve into how founded on the rock we really are.
Talk 2 - “Rocks of Growth”
As we walk this spiritual journey, every moment is an opportunity to grow in a deepened awareness of the power of God’s Presence and Strength in our lives. Today, we will explore the importance of focusing on our Rocks of G-R-O-W-T-H before anything else.
Talk 3 - “It’s Time to Rock and Roll”
Is it time to enliven your life? Time to empower your dreams and your desires? Time to let God be God in you? Well, then it sounds like it’s time rock and roll, and that’s just what we’ll do today!
Talk 4 - “Gratitude Rocks”
With bellies filled with turkey and hearts filled with gratitude, we will culminate the Thanksgiving weekend and the month of November in a profound way. Each congregant will receive a very special gift as we realize that God really does rock!
[MINISTERS’ NOTE RE SPECIAL ACTIVITY THIS MONTH: We purchased a large supply of beige and black polished 2” rocks and thin tipped markers (gold, silver, and black) and had a table display of the rocks and markers, with a sign explaining the activity in the foyer. People were invited to write something for which they were grateful on a rock and bring the rock into the sanctuary with them. Then, during the offering, they were invited to come forward and place their “gratitude” rock on an altar built at the front of the stage. People could do as many rocks at they wanted to and could do new ones each week. We watched the rock pile grow and grow all month. It was pretty amazing. Then we culminated the activity on the last Sunday. See the talk for that Sunday for details.]
