Tonight’s 3 things :
2. Be still
3. Slow down
I think sometimes we think we have to generate the Holy Spirit’s presence, instead of just relaxing and enjoying His Presence. True worshipers worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Is there a way to just relax in His presence in worship without putting on a show/performance?
We are in the world but not of the world…but while being in the world its easy to accumulate some unwanted dirt…especially for a car in Arizona.
Some people see church as the place where they can go get “clean” after rolling around in the mud all week. Some see it as the rinse off after being in the world all week, living right, but surrounded by darkness, negativity, and dust.
It’s monsoon season…who wants to wash their car? 😂😂😂
From 5-18 years old, Chris was in 30 different foster homes. Imagine having to go to a new school every time you went to a new foster home. Aged out and became homeless. Now he is mentoring.
Arizonans for Children has over 100 foster youths right now who are waiting for a “difference maker” in their life. Someone who will spend 8 hours a month with them, 1 on 1, to support, encourage, and believe in them. Do you want to make a POSITIVE difference in the life of youth in foster care?
Here’s more info about our mentor program:

Why? Matthew 6:33 👍
Have you been to the Arizonans for Children Phoenix Visitation Center recently? We’ve made some really fantastic changes!
From new flooring to a newly remodeled kitchen. We have also added a variety of programs including a STEM class for kids in foster care and an art class called “Creative Club” with cooking classes coming soon.
We are having an open house on Wednesday August 2, 2017 and invite you to come by.
Stop by anytime on Wednesday August 2, 2017 between 9:00am and 5:30pm for a quick tour.
We will start a new tour every half hour!
Seems like some places of worship these days are focusing on “eye appeal.” Ok, nothing wrong with that I guess. These days, “the un-initiated” do need to be amazed/entertained in order to keep them coming back.
To me, it seems like that is now the focus in some places of worship…entertainment. I can just picture Russell Crowe “Are you not entertained?”
Trying to make church cool…bright lights, fancy stage designs, fog, etc. Cool if you are winning the lost doing exterior outreach. Go out and get them/win them, and when they come, then entertain 😂😂
