/

1. Where do I belong?
Mark 12:30-31 
– people don’t care how much you know, they care how much you care 
– most people today want community because people don’t belong these days so they’re looking to the church for the answer 
– why we want to be the friendliest church in the ville
HOW TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION: 
– You have to belong first in order to make others feel that they belong 
– Small groups are important 
– Being on a serve team 
– Schedule stuff outside of church 
– meet with people outside of the church//do life with people 
– Pretend that people have a sign around their neck that says “make me feel important”
– it makes people feel as if they’re connected and belong in your circle 
3. Does my life matter? 
Psalms 8:3-4 
– God thinks your life matters!! 
– He cares for YOU 
– He gives us each our own individual purpose 
– YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN ACCOMPLISH IT 
1 John 3:16 
– let people know that they matter 
– how??
– encourage people 
– pray for people 
– when God highlights someone to you pray for them & let them know

1. What is truth? 
THE TRUTH IS THE UNCHANGING WORD OF GOD! 
– the message STAYS THE SAME despite what is happening in culture 
John 8:32 
– we can pray for people all we want but if we don’t present the truth (bible) then they will never know how to change based on the truth
John 14:6 
– people are confused today and confusion is NOT from God 
– GOD IS PEACE 
– It’s hard to preach the truth today because people think you’re hating but hating is not caring enough to confront the truth 
– “We (as the Church) need to stay grounded in a TRUTH based faith not an emotions based faith” 
– emotions are going to come & go, people are going to come and go BUT HIS WORD STANDS FIRM FOREVER.

Ephesians 4:13 
– love and acceptance is not equal to agreement
