Reclaimed - Where Old Becomes New
January 4, 2018
New year, new you.
Looking for a fresh start? Real relationships? Wondering where Jesus was when that happened? Yes, it feels risky - Reclaimed is worth the risk. What if Jesus does show up? What if you meet people you actually connect with on the things that really matter in life? New year, new you? Check out these testimonies of a few who are glad they took the risk:
"When I first heard about the Reclaimed class being offered I almost didn't sign up. What? Reclaim my life? I didn't want to reclaim my life. I wanted an entirely NEW life. Gee, am I glad I took that class. The very first week I thought I had learned everything I needed to learn to reclaim my life. By the second week, I was sure it couldn't get any better. But it did, and by week four, I came home from class and immediately started reading the next chapter I was so excited. And I did reclaim my life. Not the old life I had. Oh thank goodness, no. I mean the life God wanted me to have. The life God intended for me. I was still me, just a much better version. I thank Kingsway for caring enough to offer this course. I thank the leaders for all their hard work and preparation. I thank Matt for his weekly videos that were such an important part of the experience." – Anonymous
"Most of us don’t have very many people or places where we feel we can be fully authentic. We tend to hide behind our strengths and smiles and try to convince everyone we’re ok. Sometimes, we even convince ourselves.The truth is this: You and I are human beings. Human beings are created by God to be dependent on Him for our next breath, salvation, comfort, and community. We weren’t created to do life by ourselves. He provides community by being present with us, as well as bringing His people together as a church and eternal family. This eternal family should be a safe place where we all can bring our strengths and weaknesses, our joy and our pain, and deal with it together in the light of the Gospel. This is what the Reclaimed Group did for me and can do for you." – Lauren L.
"How many places do you have in your life where you can go and be completely real? To encourage you, we have the ministry Reclaimed where we dive deep into the book of Exodus. The goal of Reclaimed is for you to be able to talk intimately about the joys and the pains of life in small gender-based groups of six to eight people. Reclaimed is incredible. I‘ve been through it and it’s awesome. These small groups are going to change lives and I hope that one of them is you. I look forward to seeing you there." – John N.
This ministry brings people together to apply the Gospel intimately to the joys and pains of our lives. If you have been looking for a safe place to bring your authentic self and encounter God, this would be a great start. We kick-off the next Reclaimed class Saturday, January 20th, with a full 9 AM-4 PM day, and then meet for eight consecutive Sundays, starting January 21 during the 11 AM service. Please register by Sunday, January 14 here. There is a $15 registration fee to help cover the cost of materials.
