John 15:18-16:4 The Witness Protection Program is something we’ve all heard of, but that we hope to never learn about first-hand. It’s an important program established several decades ago to provide protection to witnesses in court cases where they are under real or suspected threat of harm because of their testimony against highly powerful people. It seems […]
Acts 2:37-41 The turn of a calendar year provides us with an opportunity to take inventory of our lives, evaluate, imagine, strategize, and plan. We often do this as individuals, making resolutions; or as companies, establishing goals. But this is something we’d like to do as a church family this year! This first Sunday of […]
Hebrews 12:1-2 This Advent season, as a church family, we’ve been looking in Scripture to see how God sent Christ to bring “joy to the world.” A question that’s important to ask, if Jesus is supposed to bring us joy (but that we might not think to ask), is whether He experienced joy in His […]
Psalm 67 Joy to the World. We’ll hear this phrase countless times this month – in stores, on the radio, and likely from our very own lips. We’ll see it on ornaments, cards, and maybe even on advertisements. As a church family, we want to pause as we approach Christmas and consider what is being […]
John 15:12-17 Join us in John 15.
John 14:15-31 Most of us have probably shared in that awkward social experience of being “on the outside looking in.” At some point we’ve all probably had a friend group, a club, or a team that seemed to be so wonderful that we desperately wanted to be a part of it, yet we could never […]
John 13:21-38 There are conflicting reports about how the captain of the Titanic, Edward Smith, handled himself when it became clear that the ship was sinking that fateful night in April of 1912. The director of the now-famous movie version of the story apparently believed the accounts that said Smith froze under the enormity of […]
John 13:1-20 John 13 starts the second “book” in the gospel of John – what some have called the “book of glory.” This section will culminate in Jesus being crucified and then being gloriously resurrected, but it starts on quite a different note. In John 13:1-20, we’ll see Jesus humbling himself by taking a basin […]
John 12:36-50 This week’s text (John 12:36-50) is one of the most difficult passages from the entire book around which to wrap our modern western minds. In this passage, we’ll see that even after Jesus had performed so many signs, His fellow Jews “still did not believe in Him” (v. 37). But what seems confounding […]
John 12:20-36 Join us in John 12:20-36, where we’ll see how the glory of Jesus was seen most clearly in His death upon the cross.
