Making Changes

Making Changes

Change is necessary for growth.  That is an absolute in God’s universe.  Nothing ever grows unless it goes through a process of change.  So, we shouldn’t be scared of change, or even resistant to change.  As Christians, we are called to a lifetime of growth in our maturity and Christian walk.  That means we, above all people, ought to embrace change.  At least, we ought to embrace change when it is for the purpose of growth, or at east helps us in growing.

Time to change switchThis week we’re making a change in our bulletin.  Now, that may seem like a small change, but our bulletin hasn’t changed significantly in over a decade.  The current cost for our bulletin with a pretty picture on the front and a Scripture reference is almost $500 per year.  Unfortunately, the Scripture reference rarely coincides with the sermon message, and the picture more often than not has nothing to do with the message.  I’d guess that most of us never pay much attention to that pretty picture or Scripture verse, yet we spend nearly $500 per year to have them.  Seems like a waste of money for something we don’t pay much attention to…

So, this week we’re trying something a little different.  All of the same information will be there, and there will still be a sermon outline for those who like to take notes during the message.  It’s just going to be a different format.  It should be posted tomorrow…let us know what you think!
