main image

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! During this busy season and our busy schedules, sometimes these great holidays sneak up on us! If you’ve forgotten about Mother’s Day or needs some ideas to celebrate your mom, here are some great ideas.

  1. Go to an Indianapolis Indians Game

Does your mom love sports or need a fun day of relaxation and fun? Going to an Indianapolis Indians game is a great choice! It’s affordable, fun and a great event for the whole family to enjoy! If you’re looking to be outdoors, then head over to Victory Field for a fun minor league baseball game!

  1. A Day of Pampering

 Moms have a tough job and hardly ever get time to relax. Give that time and space to your mom this weekend and take her to a spa. Manicure, pedicure, massage, you name it are all great things for your mom to truly unwind and enjoy some time to be spoiled. While she’s getting pampered, run some errands for her to take some tasks off of her plate as well!

  1. Go to a Fancy Restaurant

 Good food and great company are sometimes all you need to honor your mom. Going out to a nice restaurant and having great conversations with your mom is a great way to express how much you care for her. Remember, let her order whatever she want’s because it's her day!

Hopefully you already know what you’re going to do for your mom this Mother’s Day, however, we hope to help in case you’re a little stuck! We also want to say thank you to all of the mom’s and we hope that Mother’s Day is a blessing for you!

A Weekend in Review: Understanding Your Gifts

main image

As we continued our series, #adulting this past weekend Pastor Rick talked about how adulting is healthy. One of the major verses he unpacked was in 1 Peter 4:10 where it is written:

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Pastor Rick stated that we have specific gifts from God that make us unique. From communication skills to being a great listener, God has given us all skills that we can use to glorify him. Rick also began to point out that once we start using those gifts to glorify God, we don’t just become happy, we become joyful. Through God’s grace, we receive His gifts, which brings us joy. Joy is a byproduct of serving the Lord.

Pastor Rick also spoke that while we all have gifts, it’s a matter of how we steward them. Making the decision to serve the Lord with our gifts is a step toward growth as well. This decision is a declaration that we are no longer satisfied with living inside your comfort zone and taking a step by using our unique talents for the Lord.

Take up the challenge this week to see how you can serve the Lord with your gifts. Look for opportunities to serve outside of your comfort zone. If you don’t know what your unique gifts are, that’s okay! Take some time this week to pray and reflect on how God has made you. If you’re looking for opportunities to serve at E91, head over to our website at east91st.org for more information.
