In today's world, "little sins" like criticism, complaining, gossipy and lying aren't just shrugged off but sometimes are encouraged and even celebrated. In truth, these sins have the same deadly price tag as any other. They destroy relationships, weekend our ability to represent Christ, and separate us from the life God wants us to live. You see, words are powerful. They can eat us down or lift us up. They wound and they heal. And the right words at the right time can be exactly what we need to hear or what we need to say. Let's find the right words in our new series, My Big Fat Mouth.

We will soon celebrate the greatest story ever to occur- the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As we prepare for the celebration, many of us can easily lose sight of exactly what happened on that day. The day, Jesus conquered death and paid our debts of sin and brokenness. So we need to be affirmed, we remember. "Stay Anchored" is a series on identity, fear, and hope. When we "get" the character of God we are more likely to stay rooted in the hope that we have in Him. Like an anchor on a ship. we are called to steady. Firmly put in place, with a strong foundation, set, and not going anywhere. Jesus came to rock our boats of doubt, lies, hurt, and pain... so get ready to drop that anchor and steady yourself with Jesus.
