Most people want to believe their life has meaning and purpose; they want to believe that somehow the sum total of their days on earth will add up to a lasting legacy, a force for change, or some other meaningful impact that will leave an imprint on at least a small corner of humanity. The problem is we often end up looking down upon others in order to prop up an inﬂated image of ourselves. Instead of seeing the opportunities to serve the needs of those around us, we clutch after opportunities to seize the promotion of self. As difﬁcult as this truth is for each of us to hear, it is the message many of us need, and it is the message that God wants to use to bring us to a place of greater humility where true and lasting signiﬁcance can be found. Join us for this 5-part series as Creek’s End celebrates 15 years of ministry.
JANUARY 6 – “WHAT’S MY PURPOSE?”
It’s easy to get fuzzy on the purpose of life. We get caught up in so many activities and distractions, we forget why God put us on this earth. But God did create each of us with a purpose, and as a church a divine purpose. We just have to make sure our purpose aligns with God’s purpose. In this message we will discover what God’s purpose is.
JANUARY 13 – “WHAT MATTERS TO GOD?”
What’s really important to God? If you study the Bible, you’ll discover that it says that God is on an all-out search for two kinds of people. Read it from cover to cover, and you’ll find that it pictures God in search mode. But He’s not like a casual shopper who strolls through the mall just to see what’s there. He’s intense and intent about finding and working with two kinds of people, and all of us can fit into one of these two categories. Come find out where you fit in.
JANUARY 20 – “MEASURING YOUR WORTH IN GOD’S EYES”
The Biblical story of the Prodigal Son is familiar to most people. But if you study this story carefully, you’ll discover that it can tell you more about God than you’ve ever dreamed. This story is one of the most important stories in the entire Bible because it’s the story of what the Heavenly Father is like. If you want to know how God feels about you, if you want to know how much you are worth in God’s eyes, or if you’ve ever wondered if you have any significance in this vast universe, then this message is for you.
JANUARY 27 – “HOW TO INVEST YOUR ONE AND ONLY LIFE”
You’ve heard it before. “You only live once.” If that’s true, and we know it is, shouldn’t we make sure it really counts? In this message, we find Jesus telling a story of how one man made the most of his one opportunity. We will discover the best thing we can do with our one and only life.
FEBRUARY 3 – “A LOOK AT THE LIFE TO COME”
According to Jesus, our location in eternity is not based on social standing or lineage. It’s based on God’s grace. His cheerful willingness to grant forgiveness to anyone honest enough to admit that they are not God, but that they need God in their lives; that at their core, they are morally flawed and in need of a Savior. In this final message, we’ll get an interesting glimpse by Jesus in the life to come.
