at the movies 2016

Every August at actionchurch we fire up the popcorn maker, pop in a new release blu-ray, and use their plots to illustrate ancient truths from the Bible.  The movies we’ll be showing clips from, and the dates we’ll discuss them, are listed below.  If you haven’t seen them, it’s a painless opportunity to invite friends/family to watch them with you,  and then invite them to come with you on Sunday.

We’ll see you “at the movies”!

Ever been punched???

image

In the face? In the gut? Punched by LIFE???

Unfortunately ALL OF US have taken (or will take) a blow from life that completely knocks the wind out of us!  The question is what happens next?  Will we bounce back? Or will we stay “bent out of shape”?   Will we become a victim…or a survivor?   Will we become bitter…or wise???

This month at actionchurch were exploring the amazing human property of Resilience.  The dictionary defines resilience as-“the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape,
the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.”  
Jesus promised something even BETTER to his followers:

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.””
‭‭John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

If you’ve ever been punched…or want to learn to take a punch (and get back up) you will not want to miss the “Resilience” series.  Starts Sunday!

This Sunday @ actionchurch

genesis copy Last Sunday we began looking at the origin story our universe found in the book of Genesis.  Like most origin stories, the account given in Genesis (which means origin, creation, or beginning BTW) is long on WHY things were created…and very short on HOW. However, even though the creation account is short…and not exactly a detailed “how-to”…it still raises some sharp conflicts with what we believe and value in 2015.  This week we’ll move on to the origin story of man…and woman…along with tackling some of the biggest ‘problems” with Genesis from evolution to human suffering and sexuality.   You won’t want to miss it.

So, join us this Sunday as we discuss the oldest story in the world…in a brand new way. We’ve also got Music from Matt Wheeler and all of the “normal” food and fun that makes actionchurch ANYTHING but a normal Sunday morning at church! We’ve even freed up more parking…so go a head and invite ALL your friends and family that have been curious about actionchurch. We look forward to seeing you at– 10:30 am, 36 W 11th Avenue. (DIRECTIONS), and as usual, the actionkidz crew has a fantastic hour of learning and fun planned for your kids (infant to 6th grade) as well.

Sunday @ actionchurch

essentials

This Sunday at actionchurch is a BIG ONE.  In this final week of the “ESSENTIALS” series we are talking about the topics that you have undoubtedly wondered about if you are new to actionchurch…and need to be refreshed about if you have been part of the actionchurch family for a while.  This week we’ll tackle the big issues that matter…the often controversial things that make you wonder “just what kind of church is actionchurch anyway”?  This week we’ll reveal the “crazy” things actionchurch believes about God, Jesus, the Bible, Sin, and even shovels… :-)   This IS the week you’ll want to NOT just catch on the podcast…and a great opportunity to invite a skeptical friend as well.

We’ve also got some amazing live music from The Revived, along with all the “normal” food and fun that makes actionchurch ANYTHING but a normal Sunday morning at church! We’ve even freed up more parking…so go a head and invite ALL your friends and family that have been curious about actionchurch. We look forward to seeing you at…well…at the actionchurch building (that sounds really weird somehow) :-) – 10:30 am (DIRECTIONS), and as usual, the actionkidz crew has a fantastic hour of learning and fun planned for your kids (infant to 6th grade) as well.
