Gaining Ground

During the month of August, we enjoy the final weeks of summer, while simultaneously preparing for the fall. This month we want to explore how we can gain ground in the areas of our lives and church that are most important. Thus this series will explore themes such as God-driven productivity, work and rest, influence, creating conditions for spiritual growth personally and collectively as a church. We will wrap up by discovering how God is inviting us in gaining ground for the kingdom by contributing…

Spring Teaching Series

Who are your neighbors? More than the people on the other side of our fences, neighbors are those we rub shoulders with every day, from our commute to the office, to the playground, the café, or the gym. Each one is loved by God—and each of us can neighbor with love. How do we neighbor? That may be the harder question. We love our neighbors when we ask not how should they live—but what do they need. Dig in to…

Baptism

In Mark 8:34-35, Jesus says, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.” Baptism is the way Jesus gave us to express our whole-hearted commitment to follow him and enter into a relationship with God. If you or one of your children is ready to make that…

Easter 2018

Anything can be broken. A bowl or a phone; a heart or a family; even a life. We pick up the pieces—if we can—and move on. Once, in a room filled with fear in a city shaking with unrest, a group of men and women mourned together, trying to gather the fragments of life as they knew it. Their hearts, their hopes, and their world were broken. Then the man they mourned came to them and said, “Peace.” HE’D BROKEN…
Something, somewhere, is broken. The headlines scream it, and our own hearts whisper the questions: What is wrong with the world? And can it ever be made right? In the ancient days of Israel, a few men tried to answer these questions, with holy messages of rebuke, repentance, and—ultimately—hope. They were known as prophets. And during Lent, we have the opportunity to reflect on their words for our damaged world. The season of Lent on the Christian calendar began as a…

Your Place in God’s World

God has given us all a calling. More than our job or career path, our calling is the fulfillment of God’s good purpose for our careers, our families, our communities… our lives. But to find it, we must first hear the call. God’s call. And it’s not just about the future; it starts today, right here, where you are. You won’t know what God is calling you to do next unless you are being faithful to what God has called…

PEACE IN THE DARKNESS

With the holiday falling at the end of our calendar, we naturally feel Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as a culmination. Yet Christmas was never meant to be the end. We live in a post-Christmas world, but we must never be “over” Christmas, and the dividing line it puts in history: a starting line and a new beginning. The birth of Christ marks the beginning of a new life, and a new kind of life. It’s a life where peace…

Advent Devotional 4 – Peace in the Questions

“HOW CAN THIS BE?” MARY ASKS. – LUKE 1:34 “WHERE IS THE ONE WHO WAS BORN THE KING OF THE JEWS?” THE WISE MEN INQUIRE. – MATTHEW 2:2 Even in our noisy, busy world, Christmas seems to close the gap between the daily grind and the divine. Christmas gives us permission to hope for big things (and not just a box under the tree!). It tugs at our hearts and whispers—sometimes shouts—about beauty, and forgiveness, and restoration. But still we…

Advent Devotional 3 – Peace in the Unexpected

The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.” -Luke 1:28-30 The story of Jesus’ coming is filled with men and women who are caught off-guard by the unexpected, personal attention of God. God is pleased with you,…
