At the Movies

By | Blog, Family | No Comments

Most of us enjoy a great movie!

In fact, if movies had been available in Jesus’ day, I think He might have used them to share the Good News of His Kingdom.

So for five weeks we are going to using movies to highlight spiritual truths. We call the series, At the Movies. Each message will use a different movie to illustrate truths from God’s Word. We invite you to come to this series!

We will use movies based on true events, movies that are inspirational, and a movie that is simply a lot of fun.

There will also be fun extras that you don’t normally experience on Sunday morning. And each service will include dynamic worship and great spiritual truths from the Bible as illustrated by the movies. So invite your friends and come expecting God to work in your life.

It all begins Sunday, November 6 at 10 AM, we will learn and have a lot of fun together!

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday at 10 AM!

Life.Money.Hope

By | Blog, Family | No Comments

Back to school season and the beginning of school can be a challenging time in many ways.

There are the extra expenses, the clothing and supplies, plus getting the family in the flow of new schedules.

So beginning Sunday, October 9 at 10 AM, we will be sharing a series called Life.Money.Hope. Life doesn’t always go as planned, and we often face unexpected highs and lows. God’s Word shows us a better way that gives us hope no matter our circumstances.

In this series we will look at how to live beyond the numbers and how to get past tough financial challenges.. Financial experts often provide great, practical advice. God’s Word gives principles that can help take our lives to whole new levels of hope.

This is a great series to attend as it will be encouraging, practical and you will leave with specific steps you can take.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday at 10 AM!

You Asked

By | Blog, Church Life, Family, Spiritual Growth | No Comments

Sometimes it seems like we are about to drown in our challenges!

Although there are often no easy solutions, we believe the Bible does provide very practical insights that can help us live every day a bit better! So back on Easter Sunday we asked those in attendance to tell us the they would most like to hear about in the fall. The result was the You Asked series beginning on August 28 at our new service time of 10 AM.

In this series each week we will take a look at challenging topics such as family essentials, copying with loss, forgiveness, dealing with difficult people, finding God’s will and handling stress.

This is a great series to attend as it will be encouraging, practical and you will leave with specific steps you can take in each area.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday at 10 AM!

Get Closer to God…21 Days of Prayer

By | Blog, Church Life, Spiritual Growth, Stories | No Comments

How close are you to God right now?

This is your time to get closer to God! I want to invite you to get close to God through our 21 Days of Prayer. Each August we focus on renewing our connection to God through this special season of prayer. This year the 21 Days of Prayer go from July 31 – August 20.

The reason you can get closer to God is because of a simple promise He has given us. God tells us in James 4:8 – “Come close to God, and God will come close to you.” (NLT) So if we make any effort to draw closer to God, we will find He is already closer than we thought.

What are you waiting for? Let’s get closer to God!

How Do I Get Close To God?

We are going to help you discover how simple it is during our next message series called Closer! This series will explore some of the ways we can come closer to God. We invite you to come this Sunday! During the service you will enjoy the upbeat music and practical Bible message! And your kids will have a great time learning about God in our clean and safe children’s classes!

An Opportunity to Get Close To God!

We invite you to come Pray and Worship with us at the special prayer time listed here.

I hope to see you this Sunday and in our special prayer times as we closer to God!

Giants!

By | Blog, Church Life, Spiritual Growth, Stories | No Comments

Are you running from the giants or with the giants?

As we journey through life, we all face giants…something that appears to keep us from where God is trying to take us! Your giant might be debt, a troubled marriage, difficulty in raising your children, job challenges or many other things. In fact, sometimes the giants are people who seem to to be trying to block us from a better future.

When we face these giants it is easy to get intimidated in our thoughts. We can think things like “I’ll never get this debt paid off”. Left unchecked, our thoughts can become more of a barrier to progress than the actual giant!

Often these thoughts become so overwhelming that we look for a way out…any way out. And so we start to run. We run away from confronting the giants in our lives. Instead of facing our fears, our lack of knowledge in some area, or any other giant…we run. We run from the giants!

God has better for you!

What if you could learn from some men and women who were giants of faith? What if instead of running from your giants you could run with these great people of faith? What if you could learn from their successes and failures? Would it make a difference and could you draw encouragement from their stories?

I think the answer is yes!

So I invite you to our message series, Running With The Giants, beginning Sunday, April 24 at 10:30 AM. During the service you will enjoy the upbeat music and practical Bible message! And your kids will have a great time learning about God in our clean and safe children’s classes!

I hope to see you this Sunday!
