Beautiful Starts This Sunday!

book

Beautiful. Strong. Worthwhile. Loved. Accepted. Needed.

These are words that describe how many people feel and want to be seen, it is the drive that pushes us to work hard, workout, watch what we eat, and often push ourselves over the edge.

Men and women struggle to feel like the men and women they imagine themselves to be, or hope to be.

Few people are comfortable in the skin God gave them. The voices of Hollywood in the latest fashions meet us daily in the grocery line bombarding us with messages of success and power telling us what we should be. Will we listen to those voices, or will we listen to our Father, who loves us, created us in His image, and gifted us with purpose. In him and him alone do we find approval and learn what it means to truly be beautiful.

As we kick off our brand new series Beautiful this sunday, we will look at a verse that many people know, Genesis 1:26 – 27, yet few actually believe is true about them. Yet, wrapped up in this amazing truth is the reality that you are who you are created to be, if you will just live into that.

If you or someone you know struggles to feel worthwhile, that they fit in, are beautiful or strong, this is a great week to be at Revolution.

One more thing, you may have noticed, we are growing as a church. You continue to bring friends and family, and God continues to send us new people. This is a good thing as more and more people hear the good news about who God created them to become.

Because of this, we want to make room in our parking lot for them by doing a couple of things:

  1. Carpool if you can.
  2. If you volunteer and arrive early, park on the east side of the school to open up more spots in the main parking lot.
  3. You can also park on Keesal Ave., east of the school.

You will also begin to notice a parking team that will help get people into spots and out of our parking lot smoothly. If you are interested in being a part of this team and welcoming people to Revolution by helping them get in and out quickly, please email Ciara Hull.

Remember, we meet at 10am on Sunday mornings at 8300 E Speedway Blvd.

What’s the Point of Marriage?

Whether married, single, divorced, thinking about getting married, or hoping we could find someone to marry, all of us can identify with the pictures above.

Everyone has an opinion about what marriage is and how areas like who does what, romance, roles, sexuality, and communication should work. We know what they are supposed to be, at least in our heads, but is that realitic or based on reality? Is what we see growing up, or the pieces we remember of our parents relationship, marriage? What about scenes from The Vow, The Notebook, Hallpass? Is that marriage?

We get the idea that marriage should be filled with endless romance between a couple that is committed to one other to the end. Or, the idea that marriage is about what you want, when you want it. Making the relationship consist of whatever you can receive with giving as little as possible.

If someone asked you the question, “What is the point of marriage?” do you know what you would say?

Come join us as we explore the answer to that question at Revolution Church on March 10 & 17. We meet at 6620 E 22nd St. at 4 & 5:30pm.
