Running on Sand

by Pastor David Buco

I hate running on sand. Every time you take a step, it just shifts underneath you. Sometimes it can feel like the majority of your energy is just going to moving sand rather than propelling you forward. It’s a rough feeling because there’s no traction. Right now, that can be our lives with COVID. We make […]

Backpacks and Boulders

by Pastor David Buco

There are backpacks and then there are boulders. Backpacks are the burdens we carry through life. We hold down jobs, we pay our bills, we try to make good decisions that provide for our families. These are backpacks. Sometimes, we have a lot of responsibilities in our backpacks, but we find ways to carry them. […]

North Branch COVID Response

by Pastor David Buco

Dear Church, We are living in trying times. The way we respond, or fail to respond, as the Body of Christ will be a testimony of who we are as the Church and of the love of Jesus. Currently, we are at the beginning of a pandemic. More so, as I write this letter, I […]

Forgiveness

by Church Admin

I’ve been thinking a lot over the last few days on forgiveness, especially in the wake of news events as well as family gatherings. Forgiveness may be one of the hardest things that God calls us to do. Perhaps it’s because forgiveness doesn’t come naturally to us as human beings. The hurts and knocks we […]

AND depending on who you know, it impacts […]

Refining and reworking us!

by Church Admin

I used to melt aluminum cans in a homemade forge, basically it was a steel bucket hooked up to a hair drier that when lit with a fire could reach a couple thousand degrees. (It’s amazing what you can learn via youtube, am I right?) And I would melt aluminum cans one at a time, to […]

Advent is here!

by Church Admin

Congratulations! We have just entered the crazy church season of Advent — It’s a time of preparing, and praying, and hope for what is to come. Some of us light candles in an evergreen wreath, some of us sing songs, and some of chop down a real live tree and drag it indoors — all […]

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 […]
