The message is titled, “There’s a Fruit Fly in My Coffee.” This will be the third message in our “Next Chapter” sermon series. We’ve been talking about what is next for CCC, and how we can continue to increase in an atmosphere of hope on Sunday mornings for all those who have been beaten down by the world.
This message will focus on how to take a less than perfect situation, like a fruit fly in your coffee, or the rough edges on people, and see what God wants us to see. God does not wait for our perfection before He accepts us, and the church is called to the exact same attitude towards the imperfect. Truth is, our imperfections are the elements that make each of us truly valuable.
We start a brand new sermon series titled “The Next Chapter.” In this series of sermons, we assert that God has embedded the love for “story” in every human heart. We can’t wait to see what is going to happen next, so we keep turning pages with the thought, “I’m going to read just one more chapter.” The thought of the next chapter calls us forward and makes our pulse race. Life is also filled with chapters, chapters that are hard to see when we’re in the middle of them, but as we step back and look at the big picture, we can see distinct seasons or chapters that God has placed us in. Being able to recognize the end of one chapter and the beginning of next is of enormous importance. The success of the new chapter depends upon the preparation that comes before it.
Christ Community Church is about to enter into a new chapter. After the road closed in front of the church, God called the church to pray, and the church responded. Attendance at out Midweek prayer meeting has tripled, and people are seeing God do amazing things. Come and be a part of what God is doing and help us pray and seek God for an outpouring of His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
