  • 9/11, 9/12, And Honor

    TheBranchChurch
    September 12, 2018

    Yesterday marked 17 years since the tragic events of 9/11/01. Honor was shown in many ways yesterday – honor for those who died, honor for those loved ones who still grieve, honor for those who are in various expressions of civil service.

    Today is 9/12. Do you remember how most people were living on 9/12/01? They were arguing less about things that didn’t matter. They were apologizing, they were reconciling, they were appreciating the present moment with loved ones, they were conscious of their need for God in this dark world. In short, they were living more wisely. Yesterday we remembered 9/11. Let’s live today like we did during the days immediately after 9/11.

    One of the things we learned last weekend in our new series on honor is the meaning of honor within Scripture. It comes from a word related to “weight” or “heavy.” To honor someone is to say they carry weight with us, they matter, and they are not to be taken lightly. We also learned why it’s important that we recognize how God has honored us before we consider what it means to honor Him or others.

    This weekend, we’ll turn a corner and begin to explore what it means to honor God, and, in particular, His name. It might surprise you. Come with an open heart and friends in tow!

    See You Thursday night or Sunday!

    Grace and Peace,

    Chris

  • Honor

    The Branch Church

    September 6, 2018

    Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)

     

    We launch a new series this coming weekend called “Honor.” There’s no shortage of conversations in our culture which revolve around the subject of honor. Honor is the glue that holds relationships together. When it is present, life flourishes. When it is not present, many different things are at risk.

     

    There is much revealed in Scripture when it comes to honor. Come this weekend with friends in tow as we kick off a new series that will have significant applications for all kinds of relationships in our lives – beginning with God, but also including marriage, friendship, work, our church, teams, organizations, our community, and the country at large.

     

    As a reminder, the last four messages I’ve done are all now available online for you to use and share as resources in regard to depression and suicide. I have no doubt you’ll have opportunities in the coming months to minister to someone in your sphere of influence. May God use you mightily to lift up the downcast!

     

    We have Branch Orientation on both campuses this coming Sunday! If you intend to come, please help us plan for you by registering here.

     

    See You Thursday Night or Sunday!

    Grace and Peace,

    Chris

  • The One Who Does The Heavy Lifting

    The Branch Church

    August 29, 2018

    This past Monday, many of us were reminded of how prevalent the struggle with depression is today as news broke that the pastor of a large church in southern California had taken his life. He had been waging a battle with a depressive disorder over the last year. No one is exempt from the possibility of encountering this.

     

    My hope and prayer is that this short series on depression has been helpful on some level for those of us who are dealing with it or who are attempting to help others who are facing it right now. 

     

    We’ll wrap up the series this weekend by exploring one more kind of depression. Last weekend, we explored how it looks when depression is environmentally or biochemically rooted. This coming weekend, we’ll explore how it looks when depression is spiritually rooted. Come with friends in tow! 

     

    There is hope and a way forward!

     

    If you’re traveling for Labor Day weekend, don’t forget our first service of the weekend on Thursday night at 6:45 (VR Campus)!  

     

    Don’t forget our next new member orientations at The Branch are September 9th on both campuses. http://www.thebranchchurch.org/the-branch-orientation

     

    See You Thursday or Sunday!

     

    Grace and Peace,
