May 21, 2022 • 11:00am |Hangar 316
We will not be having an official Serve day this month, so we are coming together as a church family at 11:00 am on May 21st for a Prayer Lunch. We are going to come together in fellowship, worship, and prayer. I'm asking the Prayer Team to come out and help as we lift our hearts to God.

With social media, just about anyone can be an "influencer" with the right content, good timing, and a little bit of luck. Invent a new dance, share a funny take, catch the right moment on camera, and you could get millions of views. Some "influencers" mostly just use their platforms to get free stuff, but once in a while, you find someone who uses their platform to talk about things that actually matter. Obviously they didn't have social media back in Jesus' day, but in the Bible, the book of Acts is filled with stories about "influencers" who had important things to say. In this 4-week series, Pass It On, we’ll hear their stories, discover that our lives can pass on the good news, and learn how to pass on the good news to unexpected people, to our families, and with humility.

Families can be our best support systems, the most annoying people we've ever met, or both, depending on the day. There's probably no one you fight with more often than the people in your own family, right? And even if you love them, it's not always easy to show them love. There's a story in the Bible about a woman
named Lydia. It doesn't get talked about much, but it's a story about how the good news of Jesus changed a whole family. When Lydia once heard the apostle Paul share the good news of Jesus, she was so moved by what she heard that she knew she needed to share it with the people who mattered most to her — her
family. Like Lydia, you've heard about the love of Jesus. Maybe His love has even changed your life. So whether your family members know Jesus already or not, here's a question: how can you pass on the good news to your family?

Join us Thursday nights as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God."  We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting.  See ya' there!!

Fail Forward

May 15, 2022 • 10:00am |Open Road Fellowship Church

Join us as we expllore how Christians can “fail forward” in life. Through understanding sanctification, the need to acknowledge brokenness, and how to forgive other believers, we can learn to grow from failure.

To be a Christian is to be under construction. If you ever build something, don’t expect it will go smoothly. You’ll probably be disappointed! In the world of construction, rarely does an entire project happen without a problem arising—whether it’s rain delays, cost problems, or unforeseen issues that need to be reengineered. It’s the same as a believer. Things will go wrong, and there is no playbook for everything in life. The thing we must remember is who to turn to in all things: the one from whom life flows.

Don't you hate it when you find out your friends have been hanging out without you? It's the worst. But even though we all hate being the person who got left out, be honest — you've done this to someone before, haven't you? You know what it's like to be excluded and you know what it's like to exclude too. This isn't just a you and me problem. It's a human problem. Even some early Christians found themselves excluding people in the name of Jesus! When the Jesus movement was first beginning, a lot of Jesus' followers thought only a certain group of people were allowed to become Christians. They even thought Scripture supported them and that, by excluding certain people, they were honoring God. God had to speak to Peter, one of Jesus' closest friends and disciples, in a dream in order to give them this message: the good news of Jesus isn't just for an exclusive group — we're called to pass it on to unexpected people.

It’s important for Christians to realize and express with humility both their failures and their perseverance to grow as believers. It is easy to present ourselves as always strong or that we always have it together, but we are painting an unrealistic picture of ourselves to the world.

The Holy Spirit guides us and changes us. But we must be willing to be conformed to the image of Christ. Sometimes the Holy Spirit needs to confront us as believers, in order to change us.  Confronting failure leads to growth and sanctification. Facing what consumes us makes us free.

1st Sunday Food & Clothing Drive

May 1, 2022 • 9:00am |Open Road Fellowship Church

It's the 1st Sunday of the month... it's time for our Food & Clothing Drive.  With everything happening around us, there are still needs in people's lives.  We can't feed everybody, we're not a homeless shelter, we're not even a food pantry... but we can partner with other ministries to help them accomplish their tasks in what God has called them to do.

This Sunday, bring in a bag of non-perishable food items.  We are making a difference in people's lives that are down and out.  It may be you one day needing just a little bit of help.  Also, go through your closets and look for those clothes that don't fit anymore or you haven't worn in awhile.  Bring them in for those who just need a little help.

1st Sunday Food & Clothing Drive... let's make an impact!!

If you've ever gone hiking before, especially in the winter, you know that "breaking trail" is something you do when you encounter deep snow that's tough to navigate. When that happens, one hiker usually goes ahead of their group and clears the way so others can follow behind more easily. A trail-breaker is someone who goes ahead, who makes a new way, and who invites others to follow along behind them. In so many ways, that's exactly what Jesus did for us. He broke a new trail just by existing, but he did so much more than that too. In this 6-week Easter series, Break Trail, we’ll read the stories of Jesus breaking new trails as we discover that Jesus never gives up on us, understands our pain, shows us love, is alive, can be trusted, and gives us a mission.

It's not always easy to know who to trust. Some of us trust just about everyone, no questions asked. Others take our time vetting people before we really open up. And some of us just assume no one is trustworthy — maybe because we've been hurt, betrayed, or let down one too many times. But here's the thing. When enough people break our trust, we might start to wonder if God is like that too. We're not sure if God can be trusted. There's a guy in the Bible named Thomas, who was one of Jesus' closest followers. He heard Jesus had risen from the dead, but he wasn't sure if he could trust that story. It makes sense. He had just watched Jesus die. The idea that Jesus could be back probably seemed too good to be true. But when Jesus showed up in person, He proved to Thomas what He wants us to know too: that Jesus can be trusted.

To fail forward means to learn from mistakes. Christians can fail forward by knowing that sin is no longer our master.  “You who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness” (Romans 6:17–18).
