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…
