Our next Tour of the Islands will begin on Sunday, October 6.  We will meet in Fellowship Hall from 6 to 8 pm every Sunday evening for eight weeks.  If you can’t commit to eight straight weeks then look at your calendar and see when you can.  You can start your tour any Sunday evening, as long as you can commit to eight weeks in a row. 

Here are the eight islands you will visit:

I need something – healing connection, meaning, forgiveness, etc.  I have a hole in my life that I can’t fill on my own.

I believe there is a God and I matter to him.  He is what I need to fill the hole in my life.

I make the choice to commit my life and my will to the care and control of Jesus.

I will be real with myself, my God and others.  I will surrender my secrets and take off my masks. 

I will devote myself to learning and growing in my personal relationship with God.  I will surrender to every change God wants to make in my life.

I will strive to understand as opposed to being understood by listening to others with a servant’s heart.  I will offer forgiveness to those who hurt me and I will make amends for the harm I do to others.

I will daily spend time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer.  I desire to know God and his will for my life and to gain the power to follow his will.

I will yield myself to God to be used to bring this good news to others, both by my example and by my words.
