Thoughts on the Election

November 8th, 2016 – a day that has captivated our country’s attention for the better part of a year – is right around the corner. And while every major election attracts the gaze of our nation, this one is just different. It seems like every day there is some piece of news that leads us […]

Resources for Parents

The frigid conditions might have led to us canceling our services yesterday, but I (Marc) trust that you had a worshipful day at home! Today, we are finishing our brief series of follow-up posts from the weekend we had with the Yuans, with a compilation of various links to resources that may be helpful in […]

Resources In Regards To Singleness

The last few days, we’ve been celebrating how significant of an impact the Yuans had on our church family a few weekends ago. And we’ve desired to provide follow-up resources to help us think more deeply and practically about what we started to learn together. Yesterday, we posted a series of links to resources regarding […]

Follow-Up From Weekend With Christopher Yuan

It’s been amazing to observe all of the good things God’s been doing already in 2015! Though the preaching team planned the In His Image series, I don’t think we had any idea how fruitful and freeing those various topics would be for God’s people.

Lifestyles of the Rich & the Famous

There’s a significant difference between the way the world handles a person’s failure and the way the Church does. Both the motivations and the goals are vastly different! Take, for example, the way a celebrity or public official is presented to the public when they make a mistake. Within moments, layer upon layer of media […]

Responsibilities of Church Members

Experience tells most of us that we are far quicker to embrace the benefits of being part of a group of people than we are to embrace the responsibilities placed upon us in return.  As children, we love being showered with gifts by our parents, but we bristle when we are told to make our […]

What Do Pastors Do All Day?

Our well-worn copy has obviously been around for awhile. Richard Scarry’s best-selling book for children “What Do People Do All Day?” was a favorite when our “kids” were kids. Over and over again, I’d read it to them when they weren’t quite old enough to read it themselves. Now I have the privilege of reading […]
