I’ve recently started reading a new book and decided I needed a journal to take notes in. I rummaged through the bookshelf this morning and found one that only had a few used pages in it. (score) Written on those few pages were notes from a message dated back to May 2012. After reading through the notes I realized it was a message our Pastor shared during a series on the 10th anniversary of Peoples Church. There was a lot of great stuff noted on the pages, but one line in particular stuck out to me.
I love the heart of our church…..love even more that I have come to realize the truth in that statement. Grateful that God has changed my heart.
We are in a new series right now called ‘It’s OK Not to be OK’. The heart of our church has never changed over the years. It’s still ALL about seeing lives changed for Him.

You matter to God!
God is pursuing you…it’s your such a time as this….the doors are open to you, just like they were open to me. God wants to walk beside you and help you realize all He created you to be.
It’s time to walk through the door……
When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples,
“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor,
but the sick. But go and learn what this means:
I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’
For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Matthew 9:11-13 NIV
