  2. - Finding Your Sweet Spot
    February 20 - by Jeff Chacon

    Like stroking a tennis ball right in the center of a tennis racket, we’d all like to hit that “sweet spot” in life – where our natural abilities are used to glorify God in our everyday lives.  But how do we do that?  How do I glorify God in my secular work?  What if I’m not finding meaning in my career?  Is there a way to do what I love and love what I do every day?

    These are the questions this lesson seeks to answer.  The notes that follow are from a recent midweek class we did for the men of the Tampa Bay Church, based on the book by Max Lucado entitled, “Cure for the Common Life”, and they are offered here for anyone who has ever asked the question, “How do I find my sweet spot in life?”.

  4. - Seeing God
    June 8 - by Rob Davis

    Abraham persevered because he saw him who is invisible. Unless we see God, Christianity really makes no sense. We see God through the many blessings that he’s already given us. We see God in ways that he’s helped us through difficult times. Finally, we can’t see God if we’re focused on our own sins. We must look to God to help us overcome.
