We all have a story - snapshots of events and memories that, when woven together, make up the stories of our lives. For many of us, part of that story includes our connection, our relationship with God. But how often do we share that story with others? How do we get in a better habit of telling our story?

Rev J Martin said, "Words are free. It's how you use them that may cost you." How do we get better at knowing which words to use and when to use them?

A 2014 national survey revealed that 52% of Americans don't enjoy their work. If you're one of those folks (or you know someone who is), join us at Flagstone as we discover some "Work Hacks" that God gives us that can help make going to work a blessing instead of something we dread.

Google "ways to relieve stress," and you'll get approximately 17,000,000 results. Stress is something we all deal with, but not all of us deal with it effectively. We're going to talk about Stress Hacks this Sunday - helpful solutions from scripture that can help us handle stress in a better way. 

"Life Hacks" are tips and tricks that are supposed to give do-it-yourself solutions to common, everyday problems. Use a Post-It Note to clean out your dirty computer keyboard. Use a muffin-pan to serve condiments at a cookout. Scripture is full of "life hacks" - solutions to problems that come up in our lives. We are going to spend the next several weeks at Flagstone looking at some of the "life hacks" God provides us with - tips for dealing with things like anger, stress, parenting, finances, and more.

As we continue focusing on Flagstone's core values, we will be talking about "the church" in this sermon from Marshall - what it is and why our beliefs about it help determine our actions.

Core Values are foundational beliefs. They are principles that dictate behaviors and actions. We have core values at Flagstone - principles that we do not waver from that guide our actions as a church family. Join us as we talk about those Core Values.

Gluttony- that's just about food, right? Isn't that just a sin that fat people have to worry about? Actually, gluttony isn't just about overeating, and it's something that many of us might be struggling with an not even realize it. Join us and listen as we talk about the subtle, consuming sin of gluttony.

"Sloth" is not a word we use often unless we are at a sloth exhibit at a zoo or watching Disney's recent animated film Zootopia. But the Bible has some strong things to say about sloth and how it can affect our lives. Join us at Flagstone as we examine how we can become empowered to fight the battle against sloth.

It may not be something we feel all that comfortable talking about, but it is a huge problem in our culture today for non-Christians and Christians alike. Join as we continue our look at the seven "deadly sins", and learn about this destructive temptation and how to get free from it.
