Keystone Habit: A PATTERN that has the power to start a chain reaction, changing other habits as it moves through an organization or life of an individual. 

 

Making Gratitude a Keystone Habit:

 

1.      Reflect on God’s PAST activity. (Psalms 107, 136)

 

2.      Be thankful MORNING and EVENING. (Psalm 92)

 

3.      Remember that God is our SOURCE. (Psalm 104)

 

4.      Move from “I have to” to “I get to” as a church member.

THE SIXTH PLEDGE:

 

I am a church member. This membership is a gift. When I received the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, I became a part of the body of Christ. I soon thereafter identified with a local body and was baptized. And now I am humbled and honored to serve and to love others in our church. I pray that I will never take my membership for granted, but see it as a gift and an opportunity to serve others and to be a part of something so much greater than any one person or member.
