Countdown to The Big Ten

October 30, 2014

In our first 10 years, God has done great things through our church family. Now we’re reaching over 1200 people every week in our mission to connect people to a real relationship with God and others. As much as we’re celebrating what God has done during these ten years, we’re even more excited to imagine what we believe He will do in the next ten years. We are confident that God has even BIGGER plans for us to change lives in South Central Texas.

We believe the local church is the hope of the world and are ready to step out in BIG ways to see God’s VISION become a reality. This week, we’re kicking off a new Vision Journey called The BIG 10. We’re putting a stake in the ground, looking forward to our next big steps that we’ll be taking together. In this new series, we’ll be walking through the Old Testament book of Nehemiah to discover from God’s Word how your life can be a part of God’s Big plans.

As we move forward through The BIG 10 vision journey, we have an incredible opportunity ahead of us. It’s the chance to know God more intimately, and see thousands of lives changed. This will be a blessing for all of us as we follow hard after God together.

You can find out more about what’s happening at YourBigTen.com. I look forward to seeing you this weekend to get in on what God wants to do next as we get ready for The BIG 10!

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.
