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 […]

May you always have child-like faith!

by Church Admin

This past Sunday we got to hear about Child-like Faith, and how we get Trusting; Authentic; Care-Free; Spontaneous; Imaginative; and Joyful for God in all things! We are called to be children of God and to be Child-Like always in faith! More so, we get to look to our youth and how they live out […]

Examples of faith ;)

by Church Admin

This past week, Jesus is holding a snotty toddler in his arms as he teaches the disciples and those gathered round. The disciples aren’t in agreement; they believe children should be kept away from Jesus…and yet Jesus uses this child as an example of what our faith as adults gets to look like. More so […]

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is the day we remember all those who have died in active duty for our nation. In this way it is different than Veterans’ Day which is for all who have served. And in the last year, 34 people have died for our nation in active duty according to Honor the Fallen. They […]

Keep Growing (…cause you are God’s and God’s got you…)

by Church Admin

A year or so ago I can remember writing about gardening – how we can often start out with great intentions and dreams of massive amounts of zucchinis, tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, and peppers. And so we plant Everything! We do the ground work, we get soil turned, and rows hoed, and fertilize. We plant our […]

The rain falls on all….

by Church Admin

We need the rain. It is God’s way of caring for life. And while it sometimes comes with heavy winds and harsh downpours, like this evening, it’s the rain that causes all things to grow, even you and me. And to me, the funniest thing that happens when it rains is God causes the rain […]
