faith

There are so many different ways to talk about faith. There is no one way to describe God. God can be very different for so many people. Some of us believe in God, some of us don’t. Some of us pray to God and some of us don’t. I guess it boils down to how you were raised. I was raised Catholic. My husband was raised Catholic and went to a bunch of different non demonimational churches.

Well, let me tell you about my faith journey. I became a Christian in September of 2009. I was at a point in my life where I had just did the most horrific thing to my husband. I cheated on him. I was like “whoa, I need Jesus” My ex-husbands brother was going to this church in Mesa called Central Christian Church. So I went and I was like, OMG!! It was so different than the Catholic Church. I thought I was at a rock concert. It was pretty cool, definetly different. Then the pastor came out. He started to do his sermon and I swear he knew what I did, how I did it and who I did it with. I said to myself, “I’m never coming back here again!”

I went back the next weekend!

It took a while to get used to but I loved it. At that time I only had 2 kids (Izzy and Israel) they were 5 years old and 6 months.

*

What I’m getting at is that I have been at Central for 11 years now and I don’t see myself going anywhere else. I, not only attend here but I am an employee and I serve as well.

There are so many different opportunities to serve here. You need to check us out! Come and enjoy service and fellowship. http://www.centralaz.com

Another reason I love Central is because of “Rooted.” Rooted is an 11 week discipleship where you connect with God on a deeper level. I did rooted when we did it as a staff and let me tell you, I loved it. It changed me for the better! Well, I’m still me but it made me look at God and things differently. I love it so much that I have lead 2 rooted groups and will be on my 3rd one this Jan. You must sign up if you want a deeper connection with God. Sign up here http://centralaz.com/rooted and I’m at the Ahwatukee Campus if you want to be with me. We have 6 campuses so you can sign up if you are closer to another location.

I pray that you get your prayers answered and have an amazing year.

love, me
