My Monkeys… My Circus

4. Kids | Blake Gunter

Series: My Monkeys… My Circus
Date: May 19, 2019

It's not my monkey, its not my circus. A popular saying in our lead pastor's family. It comes from the idea that there are things outside of our control, none of our business, or concern that happen around us. If this is the case then its not our monkey, not our circus. But there are things in life that are in our control, that are our business and concern that we are faced with everyday within our families. Over the next five weeks we will be diving into God's word to begin to understand how to build a family & community centered around God. So welcome to the Circus… Your Circus.



Well Above Average


The Story of Joseph is a powerful story about God working in the midst of this man's life, regardless of his situations. You see, God could see Joseph's life from beginning to end, just as he does ours. He knows where our lives begin, end, and everything in between. As we explore the story of Joseph we will see how he was above average in how he lived and we will see that the same God that worked through his situations, is still working in ours.



Love is thrown around so loosely in the english language. I love my car, I love pizza, I love working out, I love my spouse, but what do we mean when we say that? Are we really saying we love pizza the same that we love our spouse?!?!!? NO! (Or at least we hope not!) Jesus was very clear in scripture about how and WHO we should love. Jesus tells us that we should “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ " We want to be a body of believers that do just that! Over the next four weeks we will learning how we love makes a difference, both in our relationship with God, and with others around us.
