In A Rut–Sunday, 25 September 2011

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge! We’re so glad you’re here! Fall has officially arrived (according to the calendar), and school has been in session now for more than a month. We’re getting back into the “swing of things.” Do you ever feel like you are in a rut? Do you long for something more exciting? Do you wish you could change something about yourself or your life? Well, that’s part of what we are talking about this week at the Deer Creek Charge. In Exodus 17:1-7, the Israelites are complaining (again!). They are stuck in a rut. So what happens? Come and find out how God provides life from something that is dead…both “then and there,” and “here and now.” Come and be refreshed and renewed.

There are plenty of great things going on around the Deer Creek Charge! And don’t forget Homecoming, which is coming up in less than a month! We can’t wait to see you.
