Preparing for Worship // January 06, 2019

It’s hard to believe that we are already almost a week into 2019. How are your New Year’s Resolutions coming? The changing of our calendars is a great opportunity to pause and reflect on the past year and look forward to a fresh start on a new year. Many people are burnt out from the busyness of Thanksgiving and Christmastime and use the New Year to re-evaluate their priorities. Anyone who has written a New Year’s Resolution has said, “This is something I see as valuable, and will put more of my time and resources into doing even though it does not come naturally.” 

As the world is re-evaluating, it is a great opportunity to start our new sermon series, The Vision of Uptown Church: Giving yourself for God’s Kingdom.” Uptown’s priorities and values are not changing, but it is a good opportunity to re-iterate what Uptown Church is all about. It is an opportunity to declare boldly that this is what we believe and why it is important. What does it mean to be a transforming community? Why do we plant so many churches around Charlotte? What does it mean to help our neighbor? These big-picture questions will be answered, and opportunities to get involved and find your place in the biblical vision of Uptown. We hope you join us and invite others to come learn what we are all about as well.
