Relationships precede Belief

by Church Admin

Tonight, pray for us. We have 21 middle school youth coming for a lockin — and it is a gift! Why? Because it helps form relationships that otherwise would not happen. It makes a way for us to be church for our youth who otherwise may never end up in church; and relationships are always […]

Kick back, chill out, and take a day of rest

by Church Admin

Rest is the first thing to go when we get busy – at least that’s true for me. And maybe that’s true for you. We live in a society that ascribes worth to being productive and busy and who often devalues taking time to chill, relax, and renew relationships. And yet God calls us to […]

Jesus is Coming; Look Busy!

There used to be bumper stickers that said “Jesus is coming, Look busy” – and if you can find one for me, fantastic, send me the link. And to me, that’s Advent! This is the season of the year that we as the church are reminded that Jesus is coming – and we get to […]

It starts with wondering and talking with God…

by Church Admin

What do you do after God goes up to heaven? Most of us stand there figuring out what to do next – and yet in this text two angels tell them “What are you just standing around for?” – And in response the disciples of Jesus don’t just go back to work or try to […]

Know the symptoms, Know the signs. Reach out and echo God’s love.

by Church Admin

We are a people who are about bringing light into darkness, hope into despair, and life into places of death. From the cross and the tomb comes Resurrection. From death and despair comes hope. We get to live this in our own lives, and towards those around us, so all might have life and have […]
