Last Sunday, we talked about taking the next step of ownership. We believe every follower of Jesus should belong to a local church and take ownership of that church. This includes serving, giving, and participating in biblical community.
Members have rights, Owners have responsibilities. As a member, your mindset is to be served: if something is broken, you tell the attendant and they fix it. However, that is not how Jesus teaches us to live if we’re following Him. In fact, He said of Himself:
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Mark 10:45 (NLT)
Watch Sunday’s sermon for more details:
It’s not about me!
As an owner at Real Life you have the responsibility to bring all your talents, expertise and gifts God has given you with eyes looking to serve others. It’s funny but true that when we are looking outward in service and taking this important step to walk as Jesus did, we find a full and abundant life!
“…I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.”
John 10:10 (The Message)
How do you become an Owner?
Getting together to learn about Ownership is required to become an Owner. At the end of that evening informational session, you’ll have an opportunity to take that next step and become and owner of Real Life Church. Childcare will be available and Ownership night is designed for anyone from 6th grade and up.
Is Ownership your next step?
Come and find out! At Real Life we regularly offer an ownership night where you’ll learn the vision and values of Real Life Church. We’ll explain the six values that we desire to grow in as we follow Jesus together: Experiencing, Belonging, Growing, Inviting, Serving and Celebrating. Through expressing these values together we help each generation find real life through a relationship with God and with each other!
Our next Ownership Night will be this Sunday, October 4 from 6-7:30 pm. If becoming an Owner of Real Life is your next step, you can sign up here.
