Restore Vision & Cornerstone


If you haven’t had a chance to check out the link to a previous blog entry Returning to Life, or to our Restore link on our website, I’d encourage you to do so before reading any further. It will give you insight into how God has led the Sycamore View family into a vision that affirms the past and embraces the promised future with such passion that we will pursue it.

Here were a few “ask’s” that I gave to the church on our Vision Celebration day, January 13, 2013. With any vision or initiative, people are often left wondering, “Ok, so what are you asking of me?” Well, here you go:

1) Pray for restoration. I am asking you to commit to regularly praying prayers of restoration over your heart, family, our church, and the communities around us. God not only wants us to care about His life entering into the broken places in our world, he also wants us to become the answer to our prayer.

2) Read the documents. There is valuable information found in the vision documents you have been given.

A) One contains the beauty and power of restoration: Restore Booklet

B) The other includes information and ways to get involved in our first initiative, which focuses on Equip: Equip Card

3) Connect with Sycamore View through social media. Find us on Facebook or on Twitter. You can also follow the youth ministry on Twitter

4) Consider with God what restoration (a return to life) looks like in your own life. We will be providing spiritual assessments later on in 2013 to gauge the health of your heart with God. In no way is this to be viewed as homework or a test, but as a healthy way to inspire us to go deeper with Jesus.

5) Commit to the life of the Sycamore View family. Plug into a bible class, Wednesday night class, or ask about discipleship groups that you could join. At Sycamore View, Life Groups are one of the best ways to get connected to vision, people, and spiritual growth. Commitment isn’t meant to pull you away from your neighborhood or relationships with people outside of the Sycamore View Church, but rather to engage the world as more mature people who thrive with God. Here is a list of our Restore classes.

6) Keep your hand connected to your check. God-given visions must be funded, because the dreams of God can be expensive. God talks a lot about stewardship, generosity, and money. At Sycamore View, we ask that your hand remain connected to your generosity so that we may remain obedient to God’s plan to connect with others in life-changing ways.

In conjunction with our Vision launch, I have started a new sermon series called CORNERSTONE: Discovering the Names of Jesus. From now through Easter Sunday, March 31st, we are going to study the names of Jesus. The names, images, and descriptions given to Jesus function in a way that promotes life to all the world. Below is an outline of the sermon series so you can pray with me and keep up with the series.
