There is an iconic World War I poster made in 1917 by James Montgomery Flagg.  It was entitled “I want You”. It’s purpose was clear to recruit for the US Army.  Today this image is so prolific we sometimes forget the desperate days that marked the reason for why it was created.

We now are in a war.  Not for land or rights or resources, but for the souls of men and women, boys and girls.  The Apostle Paul said, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil ru...

Coming up on this Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I want to encourage you to lead your families in worship together.  There are a hundred and one different ways you can do this.

          “We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.”   (1 Thessalonians 1:2)  Paul on several occasions encourages the churches he is writing too, that he is thankful to God for them.  Paul could have been overwhelmed with the persecution, with the weight of his calling or even with the “thorn of the flesh”.  Those things were always there, but Paul chose to be thankful for those God had given him in relationship.

          I am so than...

You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.  My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.

Psalm 51:16-17 (NIV)

Why do we come together to worship on Sunday mornings?  To worship?  To fellowship?  For community?  For prayer?  There are so many things that we are called together weekly to, and to say that any one is of greatest importance misses the complexity of the character and design of our...

Hey there church family.  I’d like to give you a heads up on a few things:

1) Jr and Sr High Parent Texts - I’ve been using text messages to communicate directly to you as parents.  These may be articles, videos, or Read & Do communication that is meant specifically for you as parents.  Often times in these texts you will receive a link from me that is safe to use to get to the article, video or read and do.   I promise this is not spam.  Of course, if you are concerned, please feel free to text...

        On November 12th, our “Elephant In The Family Room” Sermon Series will take us to the issue of grief.  We will discuss two ways that we can approach grief: through “worldly grief” and “Godly grief”.  “Worldly grief” leaves our families empty and without hope, where “Godly grief” results in hope and healing. 

        Each of our families have experienced loss resulting in grief.  Our church family has shared in that grief as we have mourned toge...
