09-02-18 @North Heartland: "Listen Up!"

Good afternoon dear family and friends of North Heartland,

Let me be the first to welcome you to Labor Day Weekend 2018!

To me, this particular holiday always feels like something of a milestone because it means that the hot muggy dog-days of summer are at long last coming to an end. I know it's just a date on the calendar and I know there will still be a few hot days here and there, but once we clear that first Monday in September, I feel a renewed sense of energy. I hope you do, too!

In this Sunday's message Listen Up!, we'll be looking at the first of five key factors in how God grows us and our faith in Him: practical teaching.

The Bible tells us that before anything else in our universe existed, there was "the Word" - the logic, the ideas, the thought that God used to shape our world. Then God spoke and it came to be.

Amazingly, God still speaks today, but now His word has the power to shape each of us. If you're in town this weekend, I hope you'll join us Sunday morning at 9:30 or 11:00 as we discover how the teaching of that word helps us to become the best versions of ourselves.

If you're out of town, remember that you can always tune in live via the livestream on our North Heartland app or website. By the way, we also have a Roku option. Just install the "Sunday Streams" app on your Roku and enter the broadcast ID of NHCCKCMO.

Have a great weekend!

Rick
