2020 Vision – Family

Last year, God’s vision for our church was simply to be the church. He wanted to rebuild us at our foundation. His call was one of repentance, to change the way we think for the better. We didn’t plan to implement any new ministries or programs or ideas, but rather to return to who Jesus…

Expecting

As we close out 2019 and enter into 2020, we’re reminded of a principle in God’s Kingdom. You reap what you sow. One does not sow corn and expect watermelons to grow. One does not sit around thinking about all of the bad things that has happened to them in the past and expect joy.…

Hope

Here we are, just a few days before Christmas. On that day, we celebrate the greatest gift ever given to mankind, God’s only Son! Luke 2:1-20 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place…

Fresh Start

Ever wish that life had a ‘restart’ option? Feel like running away and starting new? All of us have had moments when we’ve felt that way.  We all have regrets and we’ve all made our share of mistakes.  Sure, we know that we have forgiveness and a second chance through Jesus.  However, Jesus doesn’t erase…

Slow and Steady

Last week, we were challenged to move faith-forward.  We learned that faith is not about the results, but about our obedience and trust in God as we follow Him.  This morning, we’re being reminded of that old fable that ‘slow and steady’ wins the race. Paul wrote several times about this race of faith that…

Watcha Got?

The Rolling Stones hit the nail on the head with their hit song, “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.”  If we’re honest with one another, what most often consumes our thoughts and hearts is what we do not have.  We’re always in need of something.  Simply put, we’re never satisfied. We have two holidays coming up…
