"Hello, My Name Is. . ."
This is a phrase we share every day. But for too many of us, we don't really know our true name, our real identity. And we will never know "who" we are until we discover "whose" we are.
As Pastor Mike concludes this four part series, "Identity Theft", we turn our attention to the power of our name. And we contrast the names the world wants to stick on us, versus those God has for us.

It was a mixed emotion morning, and Pastor Mike shared several changes in our staffing team. Goodbyes and hellos.
As part of our series, "Identity Theft", Pastor Mike shared the powerful story by Max Lucado entitled, "You Are Special", about a group of wooden people who spent each day putting stars & dots on each other. Your value is not in what people say about you, but what God says about you!

What happens when the very thing we pinned our identity on gets taken away from us? Either we are devastated or transformed. More on this as we hear the story of Chris Hendricks. The conversation with Pastor Mike Penninga picks up after a reading of Max Lucado's book, "You Are Special", where people were concerned with "Stars & Dots".
We live in a generation that is unsure of their real identity. The truth is what matters most is not who people say you are, not what society says you are, but what God says you are. And you will never discover who you really are until you realize “whose” you are!
We dig deeper into this subject, and Ephesians, with Pastor Mike
