ANNOUNCEMENTS

OneLife Membership for 2023

Two weeks ago, Pastor Rodney shared that we are in the process of identifying our members for 2023. Our goal is for every OneLifer to be more than just a spectator or attender, but to be fully engaged as a member of our church! To learn more about this process and to fill out the membership self-assessment form, visit our website at onelifeknox.com/membership. Please make sure you fill this out by Sunday, February 12.

Child Dedications - February 19

The partnership between parents and the Church is vital to families! A few times each year we encourage our families with younger children to commit to this partnership publicly through a special child dedication service. Our next child dedication service will take place Sunday, February 19 at 12:15pm after the second service. If you would like more information, mark the Child Dedications box on your Online Connection Card. There is a parent meeting on February 5 at 2pm on Zoom.

Night of Worship - March 1
OneLifers, mark your calendars for Wednesday night, March 1 at 6:30pm for a Night of Worship. Both campuses will join together at our North campus for an extended time of music, prayer, communion, and a special message from Pastor Rodney. Childcare will be available for 2nd Grade and younger. We can’t wait to see you then!

Baptism
If you’ve given your life to Jesus but haven’t gone public with your story through baptism then it’s time to take that step! Mark the baptism box on your Online Connection Card and we’ll help you get started.

Bottom Line: Boundaries eliminate drama and increase mission.

Titus 3:1-2 NIV

1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.

Philippians 2:14-15 ESV
14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

1. Commit to take the high road.

Titus 3:9 NIV
9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.

2 Timothy 2:23 NIV
23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.

2. Refuse to talk and argue about things that divide and don't matter.


Titus 3:10 NIV
10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.

3. Fight for unity and peace.


Titus 3:10 NIV
10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.

4. Don't associate with a divisive person.
