New Series: “Did God Really Say”

Our new series starts Sunday – We will spend 5 weeks looking at what it means that God has spoken to us, what the Biblical narrative of the world is and how this affects our understanding of who and what we are as people. We hope to explore how His truth impacts every aspect of life.

New Series: World Changing Acts

After seeing Jesus alive on that first Easter, the minds of his followers were racing with anticipation. In a stunning act, God had sacrificed His Son and then He had risen from the dead as LORD.  Surely this would open the way for an act of God unlike any the world had seen.  What happened next, no one saw coming.  But it changed the world. We’ll be working our way through the book of Acts on Sunday mornings. Look for examples…

New Series: What Good is the Bible?

What good is the Bible? We’re going to explore this question a little over a three week Sunday morning series. The Bible is thought to be cruel, inconsistent, and irrelevant among other things. But, if it’s supposed to be God’s word, how can it be like that? Is it any good? I think it is.

You may wonder why we teach through books of the Bible at our Sunday services. Most churches have messages focused on some aspect of our daily lives – marriage, parenting, emotional health etc. The goal of such an approach is easy to understand.

Don’t just distract yourself!

Got some extra downtime? Feel like you’re not sure what to do? Last night my wife and I watched The Repair Shop on Netflix. It’s a British show about repairing antiques. They tell the story of three different people and the objects that they have cherished for sometimes generations, how they were broken and then how the craftsmen at the shop repair them bringing them back to their former glory. It’s a relaxing way to spend a half hour at…

The word of the hour

Hebrews 4:12-13 CSB 12 For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 No creature is hidden from him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account. Every job can be accomplished more quickly if you use…
