“We are a prayerful Family that desires to please God by being the hands and feet of Jesus through serving others and teaching the Word.”

1 Corinthians 3:10-15 “Planning to Win”

In 1 Corinthians 3:10-14 “According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw—each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.”

  1. There is a judgement, an accounting
  2. We have not done well
  3. Failing budget
  4. Decreasing number on session
  5. Decreasing numbers at church
  6. Little or no children
  7. There is no use pointing fingers at the past
  8. How do you want to go out?
  9. “if you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got”

Phil 3:14 “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

  1. What is our goal
  2. Sessions hard work
  3. Our mission statement
  4. The Bulls
  5. Uneven floors
  6. How we use it
  7. As a foundation to build all else upon
  8. As a reference to evaluate our work
  9. Prayerful
  10. Family
  11. I want it all
  12. Billy Bean “I want to ring every last drop of baseball out of you, and you want to stay in the show”
  13. I want to ring every last drop of what God has to offer in this life
  14. Willow Slew
  15. Marinette waterfalls
  16. Mora’s dragon
  17. I want to see everything of the Christian life

This is why we have a mission statement. This is why we have a goal. Not just because there will be an accounting in the end, but because we don’t want to miss a thing in life today.

“We are a prayerful Family that desires to please God by being the hands and feet of Jesus through serving others and teaching the Word.”
