Overview of the Series: The Bible talks about childlike faith and growing in your faith. Have you ever felt like an adult and kid Christian at the same time? Have you ever thought to yourself ‘what would a mature Christian do?” Have you ever been challenged with what you thought was good thinking only to find out there is a more mature way of thinking? In this series, we want to look at Matthew 18 and examine, what does it mean to be an adult Christian? The question we need to ask ourselves personally through this series is, where do I need to grow up to be more of an adult Christian?
The Win for the Series: The win is NOT be Amish. The win is not to be an old fuddy duddy boring Christian. The win? Is growth within a self-identified childish area of life. I handle conflict like a child. Great! The win is growth in that area. I’ve got a big head like a young kid who just made an all-star team. Great! Grow in that area. I am the common denominator to many relationships experiencing drama. Great, grow in that area!
Tools for Going Deeper
Don't feel pressure to do all of these, we challenge you to just pick one!
A Memory Verse: But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. ~2 Peter 3:18
A Worship Anthem: We are going to take a break from a worship anthem because for this series, it seems like a Night of Prayer and Worship is more fitting for our purposes. October 9th we will have a night of Night of Prayer and Worship at 7PM. This will include a time for communion and a short word from Pastor Jason. During this experience, we will push Relentless Love Week which will be taking place later in October. We invite you to come worship, pray and get missional with us on October 9th.

A Deeper Study: The Steps to Freedom in Christ
With every new series, we like to offer at least one group to help people “Dig the Well.” That is to help people dig deeper into and with their relationship with Jesus. This go around we are offering 12 Steps to Freedom. This study will begin Sept. 22nd and will be led by Jason and Ava Coache. The study will take place at their home in Bayville.
Description of the study: The course focuses on how to believe, not how to behave and will help you clear away the spiritual cobwebs and connect with Jesus in a deeper way.
This course will help you grasp the amazing truth of your new identity in Christ and teach you to uncover and resist the enemy's deception. It's extremely effective for those facing particular challenges such as:
- Condemning thoughts
- Patterns of wrong behavior
- Spiritual struggles
