New Year, New Opportunities

What an incredible Christmas weekend at Forum! I was truly overwhelmed by so many people attending the services over the weekend. It was truly a blessing focusing on Christ as the light of the world for the Christmas Eve services. It’s still the most amazing story in the history of the world. God wrapped Himself in flesh, and that was our focus on Christmas morning.

Thanks for all the emails, texts, and notes of thanks and encouragement during this Christmas season connected to Forum’s very deliberate design to keep everything focused on Jesus.

January 1, 2017 falls on Sunday and we’ll have our normal three services this Sunday. What better way to start off a new year!

I know of at least one person who is starting the New Year off by being baptized. Are there others out there who would like to do the same? If so, simply email us at and we’ll set it up for this Sunday as well.

And with a new year, starts a new series: Our story: God’s work in His church. This series arises from the book of 1 Peter. It’s written by a transformed man who changed drastically because of his relationship with Jesus. The change in his life has inspired Christ followers for centuries.

So this dramatically changed man writes other followers of Christ and puts onto paper things that are of utmost importance in the kingdom of God.

Here we are nearly 2000 years later inspired by his words and vision. This series is really going to challenge every one of us on many levels. I’m so looking forward to starting it with you this Sunday!

This would be a great Sunday to invite friends to attend. We’re focusing on heaven, hope, and God’s purposeful plan for people.

I can’t wait to worship with you this Sunday! If you want to jumpstart things - read 1 Peter 1 between now and Sunday - that’s our starting point. See you then.
