Random thoughts on Life, Leadership, & Messy Spirituality


This coming Sunday at Eagle Pointe we are kick off our BIG Fall teaching/sermon series, “Social Networks – #ImprovingYourRelationshipStatus. The idea is that virtual relationships are easy, but real life relationships  are hard & require A LOT of work. When our real relationships with family, friends, spouses, kids, coworkers, etc are going well, life is great! But when they are struggling they can make our lives miserable!

The reality is that every single one of us, as well as every one we know, could use a tune-up in our relationships – if not a complete engine overhaul. I cannot encourage you enough to not miss this Sunday or any part of this series. Join us as we learn together how to make our relationships all that they can be & all that God intended then to be.

Below are a few of the ways you can help us get ready for this series that I believe God is going to use to radically change so many lives, families, & eternities. Please take a minute to read, do your part & be sure to watch our promo video at the bottom.

1. Invite your friends!

Care enough about your friends & their families & relationships that you will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get them here. Use you “Influence” & allow God to use you to get people here to hear about Him & what He can do in all of our relationships.

We will have invite cards available at church for you to hand out. We’ll send out an e-mail invitation that you can easily send to all of your friends. Check out my Facebook page & our Eagle Pointe Facebook page for videos, invites, etc that you can share. Help us blow-up Facebook & Twitter by sharing & inviting each day this week & throughout this series! Listen – THIS WORKS!!! We saw that in a big way at Easter. Our Eagle Pointe website also has all the information your friends need to know about our church & this series.

Let me encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and really make an effort to bring as many people as you possibly can this Sunday & throughout this series.

2. Come to worship & serve each Sunday!

Plan to worship in either the 9:30 or 11:00am service & then serve in the other hour. We will need lots of help in the children’s ministry and host team – if you are able to help out please contact Tim Roman for Host team – Lisa Skelly for Elementary & Preschool ministry A.S.A.P.

3. Help us free up some seats & parking.

Parking & seating WILL be an issue! Please help us by  filling up our gravel lots behind the church. People not being able to find a parking spot does not make for a very good 1st impression. We need some people to move to our 9:30AM service & make some room in the 11AM service (which is where most visitors tend to come). Also, sit towards the front of the worship center, move into the middle of seating sections & help make it easier for people to quickly find a seat.

4. Help out in any way that you can.

If you see ANYTHING that needs to be done – a piece of paper that needs to be picked up, a person who needs a question answered, a restroom that needs to be cleaned – I encourage you to “just do it.” One of the great things about Eagle Pointe is the way that we all pull together to meet whatever is needed.

Let’s make every effort to see that everyone has the best possible experience here at Eagle Pointe. Let’s see to it that not one person walks through our doors without being greeted by several people and introduced around. Let’s make everyone feel welcomed, loved, and appreciated. Hopefully, they will leave thinking, “That is the friendliest place I’ve ever been to”. Everyone is on the Host Team Every Sunday! 

***Remember: Studies show that most visitors to a church will make up their mind within the first 8 minutes as to whether they are ever coming back again. Let’s do absolutely everything we can to get them to come back again – so they will stay in an environment where Jesus can change their lives!

5. Come with an open & teachable spirit.

I believe that God desires to open all of our eyes, minds, hearts & teach us some things, & remind us of some things, relating to all of our relationships. Come ready & prepared for God to speak to you!

I can’t wait to see you & all the people you bring with you this Sunday. I also can’t wait to see to see how God uses us & this series to radically change lives & families. Trust me – God WILL do His part – but we also have to do our part!
