In January, our sermon series is "Going Beyond Christian-ish"
The suffix "ish" is used a lot these days. It means "almost, not quite, might be, or maybe." When someone says, "I will be there at 9:00-ish" usually you know it means that they will not quite make it by 9:00.
Unfortunately, for many of us who call ourselves Christians, being "Almost Christian" or "Christian-ish" can sometimes feel like about all we can shoot for in this crazy, busy world.
The Doobie Brothers sang a popular song in the 70's called "Jesus, is Just Alright." But when we decide to follow Jesus, we have to decide if we want to be just alright or if we want to go all in.
In this sermon series will look at how we move beyond being merely Christian-ish and examine how to become passionate followers of Christ.
