Role Reversal

Message by Pastor Mark. Shepherds were not on the top rung of the social ladder in Jesus’ Day. In fact, they were pretty much at the bottom of the heap. So, why does God choose to announce the birth of His Son to them ahead of all others? Could it be that in the Birth […]

In Pursuit

Message by Pastor Mark. Joseph pursued Mary to be his wife. God pursued Mary to be His servant. Joseph pursued his own understanding of the situation. God pursued Joseph with His Spiritual Truth. Joseph accepted God’s truth and pursued God’s truth in obedience. God pursues us in Jesus. Jesus is the physical manifestation of God’s […]

Carried

Christmas is a glorious time of celebration. We remember the birth of our savior and we celebrate family and the practice of gift-giving. But sometimes our plans change.

Surprise

Matthew 16:24-27

Shape Me: Holy Discontentment

Message by Pastor Cam. When we pray, “Search me,” we are asking God to take a deep look into our hearts and reveal any dirt. But after we see the sin in our lives what do we do? Where do we turn when our deepest sins are umasked in front of us? To be a […]

Playing it Safe

Message by Pastor Mark. Is the goal of the Christian life safety? Well, eternal safety, for sure. But what about our life here on earth. Is God’s goal for us as Christians to keep us safe from all danger? If you listened to our prayers you might think that’s the only goal. Maybe we should […]

A Righteous Response

Sometime our anger is righteous anger. And sometimes our response to that righteous anger is also a righteous response. Moses had good reason to be angry with the Nation of Israel when they decided to worship a golden calf instead of their Holy God. He also responded to their sin with a consequence that fit […]
