George Bailey and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad, Wonderful Life

Follow your dreams!  That’s what they tell you, right?  But what happens when your dreams aren’t the same as your call?

This Coming Sunday…  Our October Series – Find Your Calling – Find Your Ministry continues this coming Sunday – October 19. Adam is using the film “It’s a Wonderful Life” to examine what can happen when we don’t recognize our calling. Our Scriptures will invite us to consider a few other biblical figures, Jonah, Job, and Ananias who weren’t so pleased with what God was calling them to do. How can we recognize God’s calling in our own lives, and what happens when that calling doesn’t seem like something we feel like doing?

Join us for worship this week!


Today’s Scriptures: Jonah 1:1-3  Acts 9:10-15  Job 21:28-34  Matthew 21:28-32

Sermon Transcript: George Bailey and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad, Wonderful Life


What happens when your calling in life conflicts with your own goals and dreams? What if The World were to make you a better offer? Would you accept? Would you turn it down? Which would you regret more? George Bailey has a lot of regrets, but in his moments of truth, he always ends up following his calling. Do we?

Adam Hall

Eclexcellent. Yes, I just made that word up. And it is my vision for music. It should be eclectic. When you come to worship you never know if you are going to hear the choir singing Bach, an a cappella group doing hymn re-mixes, or a garage band playing something you may heave heard on the radio on your way over. From hand bells to jazz combos, I am interested in using music to enhance and compliment the worship experience. I myself am a classically trained opera singer who used to be the lead singer in a rock band, so I am open to music in all of its many forms. And of course it must be excellent. My goal is to have you leave the worship service feeling like the music was something you were glad not to have missed that week. If you have any musical experience, or just want to shake a tambourine, get in touch with me. I’d love to work with you in praising God through song.
