Project Description

Series Overview

Join us this Sunday morning as we begin to pursue the Wonder-Life. You didn’t come this far to only come this far! Using Psalm 139 as our guide, we will reflect on four simple principles that will help you embrace the purpose that God has for your life. Dr. Seuss said it best: “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” Over the coming weeks, both in our church services and through our small groups, we will use the wisdom and experience of King David to help you understand who you are and why you are here. There is only one you – and you really, really matter! It’s time to start living the life you were created for!

Week Two of Wonderlife has us finding our second trail marker on the journey of discovering “who we are” and “why we are here.” If it is true – and the Bible seems to say that it is – that we are uniquely-created, one-of-a-kind originals fashioned with a purpose, then why do so many of us seem alike? Why have our lives become so common? Have you ever been made to feel ashamed about what it is that you care for or about? Or ashamed about the things that fire you up? What if God made you a certain way and the culture, or even a well-meaning family member or friend, squashed your calling? Can it be found again? This Sunday, we wrestle with God’s will for our lives – how we were made and how we live out our not-so-common calling.

Maybe the greatest lie that we all perpetuate, albeit well-meaning, is that “you can be anything you want to be.” Well, I wanted to play center field for the Mets, but a few years in Little League brought about a very sobering reality for me: I wouldn’t be playing center field for my high school team, let alone the New York Mets! This week, we find trail marker #3 on the road towards discovering who we are and why we are here. Maybe it’s time – maybe for the first time – for you and I to be honest about our obstacles and our opportunities. What if the WonderLife was not about being who you want to be, but discovering who you were created to be? This Sunday, we discover how to live authentically and humbly with the truth of “who I am” and “how God created me.”

Are you a morning person? When the alarm sounds, do you jump out of bed and hit the ground running? Are you excited for all the possibilities the day holds? Or would you rather hit the snooze button and sleep just a few more minutes? (Personally, I hit the snooze button at least a half dozen times!) There’s nothing wrong with wanting to stay in bed a little longer, but what happens when you hit the snooze button on life? What happens when, instead of being present in all that God has called us to and gifted us for, we disengage, pull back, become lazy? This week – as we seek to answer “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” – we finish up our WonderLife series with the final trail marker: “I am fully present in my life.”
