Finding Mr. or Mrs. Right

Self control is choosing to do what you should do, not what you want to do.

I want that bowl of ice cream but I should probably take a walk. I want to buy the newest game console but I should probably save a few dollars for a rainy day. I want to shade the truth to make myself look better but I'd better be honest.

None of us have mastered self control. But, we can all take steps to follow Jesus more closely when it comes to what we choose to do and not to do.

Throughout this Big Idea Series, which kicks off with Family Central Sunday, we're going to take at look at the biblical theme of self control. We will look through the lens of Joseph's story in the book of Genesis. We'll be following the outline of his story and making some big applications from his life to our own.

Family Central Sunday

There's no perfect family. There's no perfect church. But, do you want to hear the good news? You don't have to be perfect to be functional. The healthiest families and churches work at remaining healthy. They learn to work together in all of their diversity. They move in the same direction together. They forgive one another's faults. They keep one another in check. And, while they're plodding through it, they manage to have a lot of fun, create a lot of memories and to love one another well.

At Kingsway, we're a family. We're not perfect; but we're learning to love one another, to serve one another, to forgive freely, to honor God and to accomplish the mission he's given us.

Becoming a Family Member

During the month of April, we're going to experience a Big Idea Series that is designed to challenge every person who calls Kingsway their church home to take a fresh look at an important topic.

We're switching our perspective from ME to WE.

We live in a world that is constantly telling each of us to live for ME. We learn at an early age to take care of ourselves and to make sure we get what we need. But the Bible flips that entire thought process upside-down; it literally urges us to change our ME perspective to a WE perspective.

We're going to talk about how we can live for a WE that is bigger than ME. Specifically, we're going to look at Jesus' example of serving. And, since ME to WE is a Big Idea Series, everyone from preschool-age and up will be talking about the same themes from the same Bible stories each week.

Stirred To Compassion

“Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”

With these words, Jesus forever changed the life of a young fisherman named Simon. We know him better as Peter, one of Jesus' closest companions, the leader of Jesus' band of disciples and one of the most influential characters in the early decades of the life of the Church.

What happened to young, brash fisherman named Simon that turned him into a wise, faithful leader? Was his journey simple and uncomplicated or difficult and complex? Was it smooth sailing or rough seas? Was it straight or winding? Was it full of joy and success or failure and disappointment? Was it a combination of all these things?

Join us as we look at the life of Peter - the Rock - and as we discover what it means to follow Jesus.
