A Place To Belong

So on Sunday we started a series entitled "A Place." The first part of the the series is "A Place To Belong." We are running it both Sunday and Wednesdays with a little different flare and spin. It is so important that we remain people who are approachable, foundationally sturdy, and understand that we need people around us and people need us around them. The bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This is for all people, and it is a promise that God holds true to. As leaders and people who care about others, let's keep in mind that we have the responsibility to always present a place of belonging to those we come into contact with on a daily basis. Don't allow your frustration to be someone elses, don't allow your fear to become someone elses fear, and don't allow your insecurities to become someone elses. Always put your best foot forward and present yourself with the idea in mind that God really does have a great plan for your life.
This week remember that the Church is a place to belong!!!
