Aug - Sept, 2013
Accessing life as God designed for us to live is much different than our culture's definition of what a good life is. This definition might include financial wealth, comfort, travel, education, entertainment and a comfortable retirement, however we can have all of those things and yet our lives can be empty. God's way of life is found by nourishing our souls, putting Christ and His priorities first, living a life of gratitude and understanding that this is a life-long journey of following Christ.
Passionate Faith is one of Orchard's Five-Year Strategic Themes...
These themes have come by writing down what we believe God has been doing and what He wants to continue doing within our church family over the next five years. It is our intention to discover God's will for our church and then cooperate with Him by investing our time, energy, teaching and financial resources in these areas.
This fall & winter, our teaching series wiill focus on each of these themes.
