3/24/17 – Clear Out the Clutter

cbfdb638-b84f-414e-9b11-007988a77c3eIt’s that season of the year when many people across the country decide it’s time for some “spring cleaning.”

In addition to scrubbing all the hard-to-reach spots in their home, many people also choose to get rid of the extra clutter that has built up that year.

Liz and I decided it was time to do just that and reclaim our garage a couple weeks ago. We were tired of looking at the clutter and pile of stuff we planned to donate that had banished her van to the driveway.

A recent garage sale weekend was the perfect excuse to reorganize, donating a bunch of clothes our kids had outgrown and other gear we were no longer using. You should have seen the smile on Liz’s face when her minivan rolled back into the garage for the first time in months!

New Sermon Series

Extra clutter is not just something you deal with in a garage (or that seems to multiply in a child’s room). The Bible also shares that our lives can get cluttered and weighed down by many unimportant (or unhelpful) distractions.

It’s why we will kick off a new series this Sunday that focuses on some helpful ways you can “Declutter.”

Declutter Web

Hebrews 12:1-2 says: “…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.

It feels good to simplify, get rid of unnecessary clutter and stop being pulled in too many directions. That’s true in your home… in your work… in your relationships… and in your spiritual life!

Join us this weekend and bring a friend. I’m praying this Sunday’s message will make a difference for both of you!
