WHAT IS RISE ABOVE?
Rise Above is our Fall 2017 message series and 60-Day Spiritual Growth Challenge from the book of Philippians. Together, we will be looking at 9 Keys to Living Above the Daily Grind.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE IN RISE ABOVE?
Life can grind us down and spit us out. Our best intentions and deepest hopes can be squashed by the responsibilities of work, bills, chores, needs of others, and all the other things that bombard us each and every day – many of which are quite important! How do we RISE ABOVE the daily grind and live the life we want to live? Live the life we are called to live? Live out our faith in a way that pleases God, others and us?
In the book of Philippians, Paul gives us 9 keys to RISE ABOVE the daily grind and live up to God’s ideals for our lives. These 9 keys serve as faith levers that can life us up and help us live a life focused on serving God and others. By practicing these 9 keys, and with God’s help, we can become the people, parents, spouses, friends, students and disciples that Christ intends us to be.
As we get started, pray this prayer: “Lord, help me RISE ABOVE and be the person you know I can be in your strength.” Join us on this journey and, together, let’s RISE ABOVE and live the life God intends for us to live!
