Sign up to join us on a 40 day journey towards restoring our connection with God.
BEST. FEED. EVER OK, so this might not be the best feed, but we are definitely in the most wonderful time of the year, and we have the opportunity to choose to make this Christmas, the Best. Christmas. Ever. But that won’t happen by chance. We have to intentionally use this season of advent to prepare our hearts. We have to focus on what it means that God chose to break into our dark world. We have to ponder how…
THANKFUL IN A PANDEMIC This Thursday is Thanksgiving and many of us will sit around a dinner table with fewer family members than usual joining us, thinking about what we are thankful for. And while no doubt, 2020 has been a challenging year, God has still been at work this year in your life and mine. I’m grateful for the spring I worked from home and took lunch with my wife each day on the deck as the flowers and…
CLEAN UP ON AISLE 7 Making a mess of life is something we all will inevitably deal with in life – some of us more often than others. Sometimes we damage our relationship with friends or family, sometimes we simply make foolish choices, and other times we make a mess of our relationship with God. No matter the situation, these mistakes we make require us to actively choose to clean up the mess and fix what we have broken. The…

IT’S ALMOST OVER I know we are all facing election fatigue. Yet at the end of this race, I’m sure many of us are also anxiously awaiting the results of today’s contests. One thing’s for sure: political ads are finally over! While the political season can draw us all in to unhealthy ways of thinking, Christians are called to view their political affiliations and their response to the government around them differently. Many of the articles and videos below challenge…
OBEDIENCE IN ALL OF LIFE Obedience to Jesus is a willingness to yield every part of your life to what he desires for you. This includes the obvious behaviors we are told to avoid in the Bible, but it’s so much more. Obedience includes how you manage your relationships, your willingness to share the Gospel with others, how you use your time and money to serve, and even how you vote. As such, below is an assortment of articles encouraging…
ENGAGING THE REAL ENEMY Sunday’s message reminded us that our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against spiritual powers of our dark world. This couldn’t be more evident than when we think about the political climate in America. The first article by well-respected theologian Darrell Bock shines a light on how Christians should engage the culture given this very different world we now live in. This includes praying against the spiritual forces working behind the scenes to divide.…
Roots for a tree are good, but intertwined roots in the woods are better. The same is true of people in in a church.
