The Treasure and The Pearl

The Treasure And The Pearl

        As we step into this new semester our hope is that you would see for yourself the true worth of our great God! One of the biggest mistakes we can make is attempting to live our lives for God, with a small view of God. To discover God’s worth is to realize that God is the one thing worth giving everything to have! Which means that He is worthy!! Worthy of our worship, worthy of our lives, worthy of are everything.

Think Long

“Think Long” -Mike Ashcraft

        The future can be scary.  The unknown of what will be can be enough reason to avoid thinking about it at all. Fear of the future can make us not want to finish things. Like why can’t I just stay in college for the rest of my life? But God knows that movement creates stability. He knows that to become who He has made us to be requires that we take steps into the future even when that step is uncertain, and here is the good news- God promises to meet us there!

CLEAR

“Clear” -Stuart Hall

        Loneliness is dangerous. Yet we often choose loneliness rather than allowing ourselves to be known and possibly rejected! Self-protection and self-sufficiency may sound appealing, but the truth is we weren’t designed to go through life alone. If that’s true then the question we need to ask ourselves is “am I willing to be me, with others?”

Get Back In The Game

“Get Back In The Game” – Gerald Fadayomi

        Have you ever had an epic fail? You probably have. The thing is- we all have. Failure is inevitable, but failure doesn’t have to count you out! We live in a performance based culture that tells us we get what we deserve. While Jesus, on the other hand, offers us grace- getting what we don’t deserve. The question is will we embrace the grace He offers us and get back in the game?

A Night of Hope

“Called To Respond” – Clay Everett

        Our first Tuesday back after Hurricane Florence was an incredible time for the college students who were back in town to be together in community, to process the effects of the storm, and to worship God’s faithfulness in the midst of it all! It was beautiful to see college students caring for each other, moving towards compassion, and mobilizing to serve others who in this season of recovery- need to know that they are loved and that there is hope!

The Power of Invitation

“The Power of Invitation” – Clay Everett

        This week at Overflow we were reminded that there is a big difference between showing up to something and being invited into something. An invitation is powerful because an invitation says I see, I value you, I love you. Jesus used the invitation to change the lives of some of the most un-expecting people around him. There is power in invitation. The question is who are you inviting in?

Fall Kickoff 2018 – Fire By Night

“Fire By Night” – Miles Fidell

        We kicked-off the fall semester at Overflow with an incredible message from one of our favorite guest speakers- a message that we believe sets the tone for this year! Miles explained that God’s will is not a map that we have to figure out. God’s will is a match that lights our way and lights our lives with an all-consuming passion for Jesus! The only question is are we willing to burn?
