Sermon Notes Generations Part 1, Time 2 Peter 3:1-11 Today we begin a new sermon series titled, “Generations.” To give us perspective during this series, we should be aware that for the first time in history, there are 5 very distinct and different generations. Technology, among other things, has created a greater divide among each new generation over the last century. At the same time, technology has afforded the ability for more generations to interact especially in the workforce. Reference this overview of current generations and think about where you would fit both in age and personality (they don’t always go hand-in-hand). Keep in mind that these are broad stereotypes based on majority statistics. Traditionalists (~70 and older) — hardworking, loyal, submissive, tech-challenged, traditional Baby Boomers (~50 - 69) — work-centric, independent, goaloriented, competitive Generation X (~34 - 49) — Individualistic, tech-adept, flexible, value work-life balance Millennials (~19 - 33) — tech-savvy, family-centric, achievement and team oriented, attention-craving Digital Natives (~18 and younger) — ethnically diverse, value differences, media-centric, religiously unaffiliated We find that each generation has very unique characteristics. As we walk through this series, our prayer will be that we uncover the truths about a God that does not change in HIS desire to have relationship with each one of us. Malachi 3:6-7

“I the Lord do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed. Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord Almighty.

A LETTER OF APPRECIATION In 2012 some members of our church body established an endowed fund at Lipscomb University in memory of Jim Bill McInteer to support faculty enhancement and growth in the College of Bible & Ministry. Following are excerpts from a letter David England recently wrote to our church.

I am writing because I am pleased to inform you that the fund principal recently surpassed $25,000, which is our minimum amount necessary to endow a fund at Lipscomb. As a result, proceeds from the fund will be available for use for the first time following the close of our fiscal year on May 31, 2015. Please convey this information and our appreciation to all at West End who have been instrumental in establishing this fund. Cordially, David England Associate Vice President, Advancement
