Weekly Update

This Week at CFC

Missional Mindset

Download CG Study Notes.

What motivates you to do the things you do? Are you aware of the deeper desires that influence your thoughts and decisions? Pastor Bobby has often reminded us that we have more of a purpose in life than to just dig ditches, to make money, to buy food, to have strength to dig ditches, to make money… But sometimes we loose track, get caught up in that cycle and don’t realize why we seem to be running in circles and making little to no difference.

This weekend we will be looking further into our Advance initiative of cultivating a Missional Mindset. We will explore Jesus’ words about our thirsts and what will happen when our thirsts are truly satisfied. Join us with expectancy and ask God to reveal and renew his purpose in your life.
