Wednesday Night
Be Near - T. J. Davidson (2/2)
"Be Near" is a two week series on the games we play to feel close to God.  During this series we will say, "Getting close doesn't magically happen by itself.  It takes time and effort.  If you want to stay close to God, what is important to Him must be important to you."

Parent Follow Up:
- Talk to your teen about what you do to draw close to God.  it could be Bible reading, Praying, Serving Others, Worship, Being in Nature, or a host of other things.  Ask your teen they best way they draw close to God.

Sunday Morning
Sermon on the Mount - T. J. Davidson (3/6)
This week we are looking at Matthew 5:17-48.  Mostly the "You have heard it said, sections."  Jesus reinterprets the OT to focus more on the heart and intention of the person.  We are so outward focused and results driven, it is so important that we check our hearts.  We are not called just to jump through hoops but to turn our heart toward God.
