Wake the Dead With Us

October 1, 2014

There are so many people who are going through life half-dead, just hanging on, barely existing. It’s easy to feel that way in our modern world. You might even call it a ZOMBIE lifestyle, just trying to survive, going through the motions, and consuming others in the process. But Jesus said He came to give us real life, more than just going through the motions.

In our new series that we’re kicking off this weekend, we’ll be talking about how you can escape the ZOMBIE existence and discover the full life that God wants for you. It’s called Waking the Dead, sort of a different take on the popular series, The Walking Dead. So you can expect that we’re going to have a lot of “can you really do that at church?” fun, including zombies. We expect God to do great things over the next month and I want to personally invite you to be here with us.

We’re also kicking off a new service time, now with 4 different options to choose from! Our new times include Saturdays at 5:30 (where there’s still enough to go out with family and friends afterward), and Sundays at 9am, 10:30am, and Noon.

So make plans not to miss a single week of Waking the Dead at The Connection Church, where you’ll discover how to really COME ALIVE!

What the Tech?

September 5, 2014

Technology is both a blessing and a curse. Our smart phones, tablets and laptops connect us like never before, but we’re also connected to them in ways that aren’t very healthy. Their constant presence becomes a drain, not just on battery life, but on our lives too. The way we present ourselves on social media is a reflection of our hearts. Through technology, we can make our voice heard and even share our faith, but sometimes, without realizing it, we have allowed our technology to have too much of a hold on us. In this new series called What the Tech?, we’ll discover how to bring out the good in technology and minimize the bad by setting guardrails in place.

I want to personally invite you to be my guest at one of our Celebration services this week as we kick-off this timely series. This is a perfect week to bring a friend along with you. It’s all happening this Sunday morning at 9, 10:30, and Noon. I can’t wait to see you there!

Life is a series of LINKS, some positive, and some not-so-positive. In many ways, these links define us. In this new message series, you’ll discover the 3 most important links you can make in your life and how to secure those links for life!

What are the LINKS? They’re the reason we exist as a church.

We exist to link with God. This is our most important link. On Sunday, August 17th, we’ll talk about 4 ways that you can strengthen your connection with God.

We also need to link with people who will walk on the journey with us. You’ll find out how to best make that happen on August 24th.

On August 31st, we’ll get prepared to live out our mission of connecting people with God through a personal relationship with Jesus. That’s what it’s all about, and that’s what drives us as a church.

So be with us over the next 3 weeks for LINKED at 9am, 10:30am or Noon every Sunday. Bring a friend, and I’ll see you there!

Most weekends are full, but this one is gonna be packed out with greatness. It’s kicking off today with Children’s Camp out at Highland Lakes where our KonnectionKidz are going to have a blast and grow by leaps and bounds. Then on Saturday afternoon, our Fuze Students are going to be having some fun with Sofa Wars where the girls (PINK) and the boys (BLUE) are facing off with a Photo Scavenger Hunt with every picture featuring their couch in a specific place around the community.

CLASH OF SYMBOLS

Then, on Sunday morning, we’ll kick-off our newest series, Clash of Symbols, all about the two most important symbols and practices of Christ-followers: baptism and communion. Over the next 2 weeks, we’ll get to experience both of these ordinances.

BURGERS & BAPTISM

Following Sunday’s message on Baptism, you’ll get to either take the next step of baptism out at the river for yourself or celebrate with other people who are taking that step. Burgers & Baptism Party is happening at 4pm at Twin Oaks Ranch just down the road in Buda THIS SUNDAY, August 3rd. We’ll provide the burgers and dogs, so be sure to bring your side dishes, drinks, lawn chairs and your swimming gear! We’ll have so many people going public with their faith this weekend, I know it will be a weekend to remember! To sign up for Baptism or for more info, click here.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR KIDS

At The Connection Church, we want to be known for what we give to others, not what we get. A very practical way for us to show God’s love to our community is by bringing school supplies over the next 2 Sundays so every child in Hays CISD will have what they need to successfully start the new school year. Click here for the complete list of supplies to bring.

Every year, we look forward to the BIG blockbuster summer movies! That’s because there’s something about the power of a story that inspires us to be more than we are. This time out, there’s action, adventure, drama, comedy, and animation. At The Connection Church, we always have a lot of fun by leveraging the movies people are already watching and looking behind them to find out what God would say about these themes. We’ve actually discovered that not only does our church grow throughout the summer months, but that people grow in their faith through this series too. No, we’re not actually teaching the movies, we’re teaching God’s Word and how you can get to know Him better and live the life He in store has for you. We also have a free snack bar where you can get fresh popcorn and sodas so you’re fully alert and ready to hear a life-impacting message, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

I want to personally invite you to be our guest for this exciting new message series as we look behind the movies to discover timeless truths about how to have a better life, stronger relationships, and get to know God in a deeper way.
