In the Ten Commandments, God clearly states that we are to take a Sabbath. We don’t take lightly the other Commandments, so why ignore this one? Perhaps this is because the consequences aren’t obvious. Yet, a Sabbath rest is for our own good. We are offered this gift of rest, but we usually refuse it. Join us for this three-week series called “GEARING DOWN”, and discover what your body and soul so desperately needs.

Overloaded people live in deficit —emotional deficit, relational deficit, and spiritual deficit. If you have ever overdrawn your checking account, you know the immediate stress and pressure that comes. You immediately want to find a way to cover it, but where do you find money when you are completely out? It is just as possible to get overdrawn in life. When you are overwhelmed, you find yourself living in deficit. You get overdrawn in your marriage, overdrawn with your kids, and you just plain run out of the spiritual, mental, relational, and emotional currency that it takes to really enjoy life. Join us for this final message as we learn from Jesus how to find rest in Him.

Stress is the #1 cause of health problems —mentally and physically. And there are few things that stress us out on a consistent basis like work does, especially when it takes away from all of the other things that life has to offer. This message will show us the areas of our life we need to address in order to experience rest from the stress.

We are living in a society that by all accounts is working more and resting less. In the U.S., 85.8 percent of males and 66.5 percent of females work more than 40 hours per week. For many of us, more work leads to more stress and a lower quality of life. Without time to unwind, take care of your home, spend time with loved ones, enjoy our hobbies, connect with friends, our life is out of balance. God never meant it to be that way. In this message we will discover why God gave us a Sabbath.
