01: WHY DO WE GATHER?

WHAT WE’RE BUILDING (Part 1)

Matthew 16:18 (ESV) –  And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

This leads us to an obvious but important question: what are we building?

REPOST: Get the Most Out of 2019: F8 LIFE Goals

One of my personal disciplines at the start of each year is that I take a fresh look at my goals using something I call the ‘F8 Life Goals’. Basically, F8 Life Goals gives you a lens to look at your life through and identify goals, priorities and areas of focus. I have found it helpful to use it as a framework to make sure I’m looking at my life holistically and planning for personal growth. (Please note: the way I’m wired it works for me to have several goals in each of the eight areas. If that is too much for you feel free to pick one goal in each of the areas or even pick several of the areas to focus on for the coming year) Hope this is helpful.F

B)  Legacy = something tangible that is passed from one generation to another

C)  Legacy and giving are powerfully connected – legacy is all about giving. Legacy is about sacrificing now, plowing the way, and laying a foundation so others can go further and farther

D)  Here at TCC we are experiencing the fruit of 48+ combined years of prayer, sacrifice, obedience, perseverance and giving… it’s the season to renew our focus on the legacy we will be leaving to the next generation

Get the Most Out of 2018: F8 LIFE Goals

For a number of reasons, coming into 2018 I have decided to throw my hat back into the ring in the area of blogging. My goal is to post original content at least once per week as well as my sermon notes from whenever I speak. I will see how things develop from there. This month I’m going to start with a focus on ‘getting the most out of 2018’.
