In the same way that we prepare for big events in our personal lives, like a wedding or graduation or the start of a new job, the season of Lent invites us to make our hearts ready to remember the death of Christ, His resurrection and the freedom His sacrifice brings. In the coming weeks, we'll be talking about the deeper struggles we have in life that distract us from a richer experience with Jesus. Join us as we commit to GIVE UP these things in order to receive better things from Jesus. I GIVE UP is not a concession of defeat but a confession of things that we need to give up in order to know and appreciate Jesus and the life we can live, to the full, in Him.

WEEK 1 - february 18TH, 2018
"i give up control"
john 21
Kevin b0yd

To some degree, we're all born with a need to be in control. As Christ followers, this can be problematic. In John 21, we learn about Peter who also struggled with giving up control and how God used that to point him to the grace and strength that comes only through a life of faith fully dependent upon Christ.
