Verve Haps

Cool things happened at Verve this past weekend!
  • Continued our Bold As Love series by talking about Bold Speaking. It can be difficult (and awkward!) to talk to people about God, but it doesn't have to be. If you're a Christian, the reality is that you literally have an opportunity to save the lives of people around you who don't know God. When you realize that, it changes the way you act toward others because you want to lead them to God. Not by yelling at them about Jesus or by forcing unwelcome conversations, but by doing loving things that make them ask why you live so lovingly. Questions like that open the door for you to talk to them about God or invite them to Verve without it feeling awkward.
  • Tons of Super Bowl parties will be happening this Sunday (including Verve's!), so we decided to identify the Top Ten Signs You're At A Bad Super Bowl Party. You had to be there to hear them all, but here are a couple of excerpts:
    • #7: Your date is Manti Te'o's girlfriend.
    • #2: You walk in and everyone shouts, “Surprise! Welcome to your intervention!” 
  • Spilled the beans about the next round of Verve University, which starts in t-minus two weeks! We're offering two great courses that will help you overcome your past and set yourself up for success. These classes will meet from 6:05 to 7:35PM at Verve for 6 consecutive Sundays, and you can register for one right now!
