Mission Hills Church
A Weary World Rejoices | Control Issues
It’s been a long year and we’re all tired of a lot of things. Weary, even. But, sometimes, it can help to remember that most of what we’re facing has been faced by people in the past, too. In fact, in the historical accounts of Jesus’ birth, we find joy breaking into a world much like ours, weary from political unrest, social injustice and even disease. Join us as we find fresh insight, hope and joy this Christmas!

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

If you are a first time guest, we would love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center for a free gift.
To worship is to submit to someone’s control over you.
The more we strive for control, the more we’re disturbed by change.
The more we strive for control, the more we produce chaos.
The more we strive for control, the more we make our problems everyone’s problems.
The more we’re driven by compassion for others, the less we’re driven to control them.
We can trust God's control because even the attempts to work against Him end up working for him.
When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious... (Matthew 2:16a)
The need for control is often rooted in insecurity.
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. (Mat 2:10)
Striving for control limits joy, but trusting God’s control multiplies it.
2. Reframe "letting go" as "opening up."
3. Identify and ignore your insecurity.
4. Start small and work your way up.
1. Is there a consistent insecurity I can identify behind my need to be in control?
2. What’s one thing I can do to practice trusting God’s control this week?
