Are you a fan or a follower? 

The dictionary defines a fan as ‚Äúan enthusiastic admirer.‚ÄĚ Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice. Fans may be fine with repeating a prayer, attending church on the weekend, and slapping a Jesus fish on their bumpers.¬†

But is that really the extent of the relationship Jesus wants? Jesus was never interested in having admirers. It’s not fans he is looking for. 

Join us in June and through the summer as we explore not a fan.¬†by Rev. Kyle Idleman to discuss ‚Äúbecoming a completely committed follower of Jesus‚ÄĚ. Eileen Green will be leading the Sunday morning sessions. Books will be provided at no charge to the first 19 attendees.
