Finding Your Way Back to God

We are all born with a desire for meaning, love and significance.

We are all born with a desire for meaning, love and significance, but all too often we search for them in people and places that ultimately disappoint. Even at our best, we can sometimes be caught off guard and distracted by the world. Let's take a look at how all of us, no matter where we are, where we’ve been or how far we’ve strayed away, can find God and experience the full life He offers. We’ll learn that the life He has planned for us is a great adventure with many surprises, dangers and rewards along the way!

Week 1 Message- Introduction -Where Am I?

Date- September 12th & 13th, 2015

Key Verse(s)-  1 John 2:15-17, Jeremiah 2:13

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

It is easy to forget about God and get lost trying to make life work on our own. What finding our way back to God is and isn’t.

Week 2 Message- Awakening to Longing - There’s got to be more.

Date- September 19th & 20th, 2015

Key Verse(s)Luke 15:11-13, Ecclesiastes 3:11

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

Having longings and desires is good…its how we try to fulfill them that becomes problematic. Purpose, impact and love are good but we were created to ultimately find them in a relationship with God.

Week 3 Message- Awakening to Regret - I wish I could start over

Date- September 26th & 27th, 2015

Key Verse(s)-  Luke 15:14-17, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 1:9, John 10:10, 2 Corinthians 7:10

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

God offers us a new start…not to go back to where we’ve been but a brand new beginning – a new and different life that will really fulfill us. To often we get stuck in regret and never move forward.

Week 4 Message- Awakening to Help - I can’t do this on my own

Date- October 3rd & 4th, 2015

Key Verse(s)Luke 15:18-20

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

When we humbly admit that we need help God is ready and waiting for us just like the prodigal’s father was. Jesus is the one who came to give us exactly the help we need and He is eager and ready if we will just ask.

Week 5 Message- Awakening to Love - So God really loves me after all?

Date- October 10th & 11th, 2015

Key Verse(s)-  Luke 15:21-23, Ephesians 2:8-9

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

It is healthy to respond to God by saying “I don’t deserve your love and forgiveness” after all that is exactly what grace is – getting what we need and not what we deserve

Week 6 Message- Awakening to Life - Now this is living! 

Date- October 17th & 18th, 2015

Key Verse(s)-  Luke 15:24, 2 Corinthians 5:17-20

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

The new life God offers us is unlike anything we could ever find anywhere else. It is an adventure where we are God’s partners along with His family (the church) and our full potential can be realized to make a real difference in the world. The importance of being vitally connected with a church and Small Group can’t be overstated!!!
