10-28-18 @North Heartland: Plan "A"

Good morning good people of North Heartland,

Two quick things for this week's note ...

First of all, this Sunday we'll be continuing our series Outsiders. As I said in the message last Sunday (click here if you missed it), part of what makes Christianity so different from the culture is that, in Christianity, those who are outside of our "tribe" (non-believers) are not the enemy. Instead, they are treasured and valued. They matter greatly to God. For that reason, in Christianity, the hope isn’t that outsiders will move further out. Instead, the hope is that outsiders might someday become insiders.

This week (and next) we'll take it a step further and talk about how that happens and the role God invites insiders to play. As I wrote last week, my hope is that this series will inspire and empower us to be confident as we share our hope in Jesus with the world around us.

Second, in last week's note, I gave you a non-working link for the Impact Partner Fund. Grrrr ... Anyway, if you want to give, there is still time and still a need. Currently, we've received about $9,300 towards our goal of $10,000. Click here and then either login or choose quick give then select Impact Partner Fund from the drop-down list.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you Sunday!
