As we continue reading through the Book of Luke, this week we are reading chapters 12 - 15.  When you get to chapter 15, Jesus tells 3 stories to his audience to communicate one significant point. Something happens in the first two verses that cause Jesus to feel the need to express what God values in contrast to popular opinion in that day. Take some time to consider what God values as you read that chapter.  How do His values match our own?  This Sunday, we will be discussing how to practically live out His values 

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.


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. 


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!
