Christ-centered Life: GROWING SPIRITUALLY

Due to the change of venue and Easter Sunday, we put off the conclusion of the Christ-Centered Life Series until this Sunday.  Whether you have grown spiritually when facing a major life storm, when spending time getting to know God through the Bible, in community, during worship or while engaged in spiritual exercises (like prayer or fasting), there are a wide variety of tools God can use to help us mature.  This week, we will consider what part service and outreach play as a catalyst toward our spiritual development. Join us this Sunday to hear about exciting opportunities for service and outreach and don't miss the display tables in the foyer immediately following our Sunday service! (Mark 10:45)

Chirst-centered Life: A TIME FOR CHANGE

Everyone responds differently to change. Some people resist it, others are indifferent to it and few people actually thrive in it. I do not believe in change simply for change sake; however, regardless of our differing personalities and how we may react to change, change is upon us as a church in several areas.

Due to the timing of Embassy Suites telling us that there would be no way to offer us a steady meeting place for approximately 3 months, the leadership team spent a great deal of time praying and surveying other potential venues.  We decided on the use of Christ Community Church on Sunday evenings for several reasons, but suffice it to say that we all felt that this was the right decision given our scenario. For more details regarding changes at J10, please click on the link below to listen to this past Sunday's message. 

This Sunday we will resume our Christ-centered Life series.  Hope you can join us at 5PM at our new location.

Christ-centered Life: WHAT HAS HELPED YOU GROW IN YOUR FAITH?

As we have been talking in recent weeks about the many catalysts God uses to grow our faith, one of the top six is WORSHIP.  It is possible to not only grow, but to experience God's presence as we worship.  Join us this week as we seek to grow spiritually as we praise the Living God in worship. 

Christ-centered Life: Sticking Together: The Value of Community

Is anyone out there feeling a bit stir crazy when cooped up with snow, ice, wind and frigid temperatures?  After the 3-5 inch forecast last week became more than a foot of snow, most local churches kept their doors closed for safety sake. It was refreshing to join a number of familiar J10 faces at Manhattan's Pizzeria on Sunday afternoon.  Why is community so important?  What is it about our relationships together that has the power for life change and makes "community" one of the 6 catalysts, when it comes to growing in faith? Brave the cold this Sunday, as we carry on that discussion at the Embassy Suites in Ashburn @ 10AM.  If you are able, join us for lunch at Moe's next door, following the service!  

Christ-centered Life: KNOWING JESUS THROUGH HIS WORD

How do you and I grow spiritually or mature in ways that know Jesus in such a way that He is the lead on our lives?  We have kicked around the idea of daily spiritual exercises that can help us in this area, in addition to the storms of life that can drive us to Jesus in hopes that He will provide peace and calm in a squall. This week we will consider the third of 6 different catalysts which can foster growth: our understanding of the Bible. I hope you can join us early for refreshments - we start at 10am Embassy Suites. Enjoy the snow and stay warm in the meantime!

Christ-centered Life: DEALING WITH LIFE STORMS

How do you respond when an unexpected trial or crisis arises in your life?  Life storms are not something that we tend to welcome with open arms.  When they strike, usually we have little to no control regarding the timing of their initial impact, their severity and the length of time that they remain. Our only variables seem to be related to our response; how we face the squall, and who we invite to join us as we seek to weather the storm.  Storms are part of life and they are also one of the greatest catalysts for spiritual growth and maturity. Join us this week at Embassy Suites in Ashburn for an unforgettable service - featuring a few people sharing about their storm encounters that they were simply thankful to have survived. J10 Church meets at 10am, but come a few minutes early to enjoy beverages, sweets and some good conversation!
