our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God
our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves
our hope is that the best is yet to come
Join us this Sunday as we continue our September sermon series entitled JIM CLASS: A Study Through the Book of James. P. Sam will be sharing the message:
“Pride & Humility” based on James 4:1-17
We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.
EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.
We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.
We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.
EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.
We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.
We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.
EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.
Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.
We’ll see you this Sunday!
THIS SUNDAY @ EMBRACE
“Pride & Humility”
Our pride is the cause of many conflicts. According to James, we need to live lives of humility. We need to humble ourselves before God and before others. God’s way is different from the ways of the world. The world tells us that we should climb the ladder and make our way to the top. The world tells us that we should seize everything that we want. The world tells us that we are kings and queens and we deserve the best. But James says, be careful. There is only one Judge. And where we stand in relationship to Him will be absolutely important.
