Be Bold

As we begin a new series on being “Deeply Committed,” let’s be bold! Being bold is less about my having courage and more about trusting God’s faithfulness. Key Text: Matthew 14:22-32 ESV

How To Get Unstuck

As we begin the Lenten journey to the cross together, let’s prepare ourselves for this journey. Let’s not be too quick to race to the Resurrection without learning both how to lay down unnecessary weights and how to deal with sin in our lives. If we are truly going to make it to Easter with Jesus, we need to get unstuck and make the trek through Jesus’ life, teaching, suffering, and death with Him. Key Texts: Matthew 16:24 NRSV, Hebrews 12:1-2…

Taking a Rain Check

Disappointment is bound to happen. Plans will be altered. What we do when things don’t go the way we want says a lot about our faith and our character. Preparing for the rainy day means that we do what we can in advance to get ready, and it means that we embrace the rain when it comes our way.  When it rains, instead of pouting about the rain, try embracing the change of plans and do something different.

ACCOMPANIMENT in Mission

On Sunday, we will travel virtually to Haiti for a special focus on our mission and ministry to Momance, Haiti. You are invited to participate in a virtual trip that includes music, video, and a message that is sure to inspire and encourage us along the journey. Key Text: Matthew 5:41 KJV
