09-09-18 @North Heartland: "Behind the Scenes"

Good afternoon family and friends of NHCC,

Even though it means we haven't been able to enjoy the outdoors very much, it's been so great to see it rain for a couple of days in a row. I don't know about your front yard but, up until just recently, mine has resembled an exploded minefield! But now, after a little bit of downtime from the sun's heat plus this rain, the grass and flowers in my yard are not only greening up - they're actually growing again.

I'm always amazed how just a little bit of TLC can impact nature in such a positive way but the same thing is true when it comes to our faith. Just a little bit of downtime from the "heat" of day-to-day life, just a little bit of "water from above" (i.e., a little bit of Divine TLC) not only greens up our faith, it also produces growth.

That idea is the focus of this Sunday's services at North Heartland as we continue in our series Five Things God Uses to grow us and our faith in Him. Not only will we learn about two Behind the Scenes activities that water the soul, we'll actually learn how to do one of them right then and there so that we can do it at home on our own, later, behind the scenes.

We're packing a lot into this service from start to finish so I'll again encourage you to be in the auditorium and ready to go right at 9:30 or 11.

See you then!

Rick
