Verve Haps

Great weekend at Verve this past Sunday and Monday!
  • We continued our Pinky Swear series by talking about the Vow of Purity. To experience a marriage that is all it can be, we need to love our spouse with the purity of Christ. When Adam and Eve were initially created, they were totally naked (in every way) and felt no shame. But when sin entered the human existence, it changed things, and since then pure love has been contaminated by secrets, unconfessed sin, and other impurities that can deteriorate marriages.
  • Whether single or married, one of the greatest things we can do to free ourselves from strongholds that can hold us back from healthy relationships is to confess secrets or sins to God and to other people. A great setting for this is in the context of Micro Groups, where you can meet  regularly with 3 to 5 other Ververs of the same gender to unpack what's going on in your life.
  • This past weekend's service involved more nudity than any service in the history of Verve. If you weren't there, you missed out, but you can still watch the service online.
  • Buzz is starting to build for our third annual Kickball Game! It's going down on May 18 at 10:00AM at Desert Bloom Park. It's the perfect opportunity to invite your friends to a fun Verve event, so make plans to be there... and make sure you bring your A-game.
