So many great things happened at Revolution Church right now. I announced that in conjunction with our move at the end of August, we will be moving to 1 service on May 26th. The reason is that all the places we are talking to right now are larger than where we meet right now and we want to be prepared for that. I’m excited about this on a number of levels: we get to worship as an entire church in one room this summer, God is preparing us for some big things as we look to move to a larger facility and he uses Revolution to help people find their way back to God. By making this transition now, it helps us to make sure our teams and systems are ready for 1 service instead of 2.
We also announced 2 weeks ago that Jared Carter has joined our staff team as the Next Generation Pastor overseeing Planet Rev and Rev Up. He had a parent meeting this past week for parents of Planet Rev kids and announced that this week we are introducing an electronic check in for Planet Rev. You can read all the details here at the Planet Rev blog. If you are a Revolutionary parent, I’d encourage you to subscribe to this blog to stay up to date on what is happening in Planet Rev.
Also, this past week, we started a brand new book of the Bible, 2 Peter. The theme of 2 Peter is simple: many of us believe lies that affect our lives and our faith in Christ. On Saturday, we looked at how we fight one of the biggest lies in our culture, the lie of having more. If you missed it you can listen here.
This week, I’ll be preaching from 2 Peter 1:5 – 15 and looking at some of the doubts that many people wrestle with: have I sinned too much for God’s grace, is it possible for me to lose my salvation, can I do something for God to stop loving me. Many people can easily believe that God exists but then struggle with believing that God cares for them, loves them and forgives them. If we see these lies and the truths that combat them, it actually affects everything about our relationship with Jesus.
So, do whatever you have to do to be at Revolution this week (and bring someone with you, you never know how a simple invite can make an eternal difference). An easy to invite someone is to send them an e-vite.
Remember, we meet at 4 & 5:30pm at 6620 E 22nd. St.
