Rick’s Reflections- 8/12/2018

Today we are thinking about the very important issue of knowing God’s will for our lives. One of the most central pieces to this process has to do with our relationship to God. If we are walking closely with the Lord and truly desiring His will for our lives, God will place His desires in … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 8/5/2018

Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” When was the last time you felt weary and burdened? For me, it was just this past week. I had been having some lawn mower troubles, so my grass was exceptionally tall. When it finally stopped raining … [Read more…]

This morning we will take a peek at an old message with a  very current application in all of our lives.  As a church we are              encouraged to participate with God in the rebuilding of our lives and establishing the Kingdom of God.  Like those who have gone before us there are many challenges and … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 7/22/2018

Even those of us who only occasionally watch sporting events have witnessed it. It is inevitable. A close play is made, not so close that you don’t know the outcome, but close enough that some might not be able to tell. The referee makes a call… and is wrong. Some in the crowd cheer and some … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 7/15/2018

As we continue to look over the shoulder of Nehemiah, we learn spiritual lessons for rebuilding the broken places in our lives. Everyday we are reminded of just how much brokenness there is in our world.  We all deal with our own and that of others.  It is vital that we likewise be reminded that … [Read more…]

Someone once said there are two kinds of people in the world; those whose lives have fallen apart and those whose lives will fall apart.  I am not sure the language is 100% accurate but I think we can all attest to some level of brokenness in our lives.  It has been rewarding to think … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 7/1/2018

We’ve spent the last few weeks speaking on a topic that everyone needs at some point in their life: what to do with our brokenness. We’ve all experienced times of pain, heartache, and confusion where we’re not sure where to go. We’ve seen that this is okay, even an important part of life. It’s through … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 6/24/2018

One of the most thought provoking hymns ever written is Isaac Watts’ When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. He wrote over 600 hymns but it seems that he wrote this text as if he were standing at the foot of Christ’s cross, together with the disciple John, the faithful women, Jesus’ mother, the Roman soldiers … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 6/17/2018

Happy Father’s Day! I cannot stress enough how important it is that we take time to acknowledge men and the essential role they play in the family. A secular society would have us believe otherwise, portraying the common father as lazy and unintelligent. It is remarkable to me that in only a few decades society’s … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 6/10/2018

We are in a series of messages challenging us to consider the possibility that even in brokenness there can be real beauty. We have reflected on the fact all of us are broken people in one way or another. We have also been reassured our Heavenly Father loves us despite our brokenness and can bring … [Read more…]
