One Book: 2 Corinthians

Have you ever felt life should be easier than the way you experience it? Or maybe you’ve wondered if your faith is authentic because you sometimes struggle to believe what God says? Maybe you’ve questioned if God could ever use you in any significant way because you really don’t have it all together. Well…be encouraged! […]

One Book: 1 Corinthians

What’s that old saying? “If you can find a perfect church, don’t join it. You’ll mess it up!” We smile, because even if we don’t like to admit it, we know it’s true. Every church is messed up to some degree due to the simple reality that the church is made up of people – […]

One Book: Romans

Do you remember the days when people used to go to their mailboxes, anxiously awaiting the postcard from a loved one on vacation or that handwritten letter from a love interest who had moved far away? Letter writing has fallen on hard times. In our day of quick communications, it is rare for us to […]

One Book: Acts

Do you ever wonder how that first group of Christ-followers felt when Jesus told them “you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”? To the ends of the earth? Really? There were only about 120 of them, and they were, by-and-large, a rather […]

One Book: John

If you’ve ever read the 4 Gospels, you may have noticed how different John’s record is from the other accounts. The books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke emphasize the sequence of events and factual encounters. Though John unapologetically presents the “facts” about who Jesus is, he’s a bit more of a poet, painting a distinct […]

One Book: Luke

It’s human nature, when we are in a certain line of work, to take special notice of others who work in our field. For example, artists look at the work of fellow artists with a unique eye, and sales people listen to the sales pitches of others with a unique ear. It’s no wonder then, […]

One Book: Mark

“Who is Jesus?” That question has fascinated the world for centuries. Even today, around Christmas and Easter, magazines and TV shows try to get to the bottom of that question. And it’s a question of ultimate importance. That’s the question we will be looking at in the gospel of Mark. Join Pastor Kyle Brenneman as […]

One Book: Matthew

When you turn the page of your Bible from the last book of the Old Testament (Malachi) to the first book of the New Testament (Matthew), it’s easy to miss just how much actually happened between the times that those two authors took up their pens. And while many historical events took place during that […]

Building Together: Value 7

The idea of unity is important. Whether we’re on a sports team, a part of the military, or a worker in a corporation, we have to be united by a common purpose and mission to accomplish the task at hand. Whether we like it or not, there are certain tasks we cannot accomplish alone. Like […]

Building Together: Value 6

If you ever took an art class, you may remember learning about complementary colors: blue and orange, yellow and purple, red and green. These are colors that are on opposite sides of the color wheel, but that actually work well when they are used side by side. As we dive into Genesis 1-3 to look […]
