Living Generosity: Schedule

As we continue our series on generous stewardship, we take on one of the biggest areas we struggle in; our schedules. Join us as we explore Biblical practices and examples to manage our time in a way that brings purpose, peace, and shares the gospel with the world. We explore the life of Jesus, Paul’s teachings, and dig into some practical life application points you can adopt today. tsflife.com

The Christmas season used to be a time where generosity was celebrated and flowed like no other time of the year. However, with mounting anxiety, financial needs, and get togethers; we can find ourselves being a little more understanding of Ol’ Ebenezer Scrooge. Instead of being generous, we tend to horde our time, finances, and relationships to get through the holidays instead of sharing from the greatest gift ever given… Christ. In this first study on generosity, we will look at the Biblical understanding of generosity with our finances. ““Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2: 10-12

How to Live Thanksgiving


Can you believe it’s already almost Thanksgiving? This Sunday, we will be digging into a study in Ephesians on Thanksgiving (but it won’t be the Thanksgiving sermons you might have heard before). Thanksgiving is more than a meal or holiday that brings real life change for you, your friends, your family and beyond.

Dealing with Anxiety

In this study, we will cover what Jesus has to teach us with dealing with anxiety. As we go through the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus picks an interested place to place this teaching. We will look at dealing with the stress from this world, how Jesus counsels us to move out of stress, and what to do today to start making the shift. tsflife.com
