THIS SUNDAY (May 20th) we step out in faith and begin to move mountains. WE are ONE DECISION away from a totally different road. Of course, this moment in Genesis history will be the toughest decision we'll ever make, the scariest risk we'll ever take - but we're taking it together. The Lord is calling us to accomplish NOW the dream He's put in OUR hearts.
Pastor Mark Batterson writes in Chase the Lion, "Every life is defined by decisive moments, and those moments of decision often dictate the course of decades. That shouldn't make you nervous, not if God is ordering your footsteps. It should fill you with a sense of destiny."
This is our destiny moment.
Psalm 37:23 // The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.
Proverbs 16:9 // A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
Jeremiah 29:11 // "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I hope you are hearing the roar. It’s time to chase our lion. It's time to expand our mission, His love and our influence in caring for those who are marginalized. It's time to grow our church. It's time to build the Shining Hope Dream Center for those aging out of foster care and providing adults with special needs a place to fulfill their dreams. It's time to get our homeless teens off the streets. It's time to be the church we're CALLED to be. Yes, it's time to step into THAT calling.
God has put this in our path to accomplish it. 28 acres. 2 buildings. 1 Generosity Experiment offering. How will you help us make this happen? It's your choice. It's your lion too. Let's chase it.
Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen."
Come help us throw mountains. The Generosity Experiment is happening THIS SUNDAY. What will God have you give? Start praying. Start believing for miracles. Start planning for our even brighter future together. We'll be saving you a seat - 9:29 & 11:01 a.m.
With Big Faith and Sincerity,
Pastor Scott Hunter
None of the work we do at Genesis would be possible without God moving the hearts of our people to give. Your generosity helps create a church where people feel welcomed, lead, and loved—a place where life-changing stories are being written every week. On behalf of those stories, thank you for giving from your heart.
Your gifts also help us to reach into the community! From the JDRF One Walk, A Night To Shine, Whitney's Hope, and even Shine Tallahassee, your continued support helps us touch lives right where they are!
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income. So why is that important, and how does it affect you?
Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithe to a local church is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show Him we trust Him, and fight against greed. Giving regularly allows us to be a part of the most important work in life—spreading the good news of Jesus Christ!
If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24, and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
