Have you ever been involved with something, but got to a point where you had to ask yourself, what’s my next step?
Maybe you’ve supported a local football team, and you said to yourself, “just watching on Sunday’s isn’t enough.” You spend the next week learning about the team, so you know how to interact with your friends when you watch the game with them on Sunday. This process of learning about the team and building relationships while watching the games becomes fun for you, but you ask yourself, “is there more?” The answer is yes.
You realize that there is a place where people actually get to see the games in person, and you want to be a part of that experience. You research the cost of admission, and understand that to fit in you need a new wardrobe. After investing your time, finances, and energy, you arrive to the game voice ready and you either bask in the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat after the game. This has to be the pinnacle of fanhood, right? Wrong! There’s more.
You now research the price and impact of attending a whole season of home games on your bank account and life in general. Playoffs? Worth it! “Where are they?” You are there! This has to be the end of it, right? Nope.
You forgot road games…
The truth of the matter is, there is always something more and there is always a next step if you have a passion for the Green Bay Packers. (You can change the team name)
If you have attended or visited Open Life in the past months or years I want to invite you to the next step. I don’t know what that step is for you, but I know that there is a step worth taking as we strive to be people leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
I would like to invite you to attend Open Life 101 during the afternoon of June 7th. Simply put, it is a time for you to learn about everything that is “Open Life.” If you’ve been to a service on a Sunday and wondered “Why does Open Life do _____?” or “How come the person asks everyone to fill out the connect card every week?” Open Life 101 is for you.
You’ll get to hear about the story of Open Life as well as our mission, vision, values, and culture we aspire to live out as part of Jesus’ church in Bonney Lake and beyond. You’ll have a chance to get answers to questions you may have. Most importantly, you will have a chance to think about what’s next?
If your processing what your next step at Open Life is, OL101 is the perfect place to process. We believe that the coolest and best ways to do church haven’t been thought of yet, and maybe you have some of those thoughts. We would love for you to join us at Open Life 101 as we talk about some of those ideas.
