A Note from the Pastor: The Lord responds to dependence

I love the New Year’s holiday because it signifies a fresh start. But we are all familiar with false launches and feelings of frustration that accompany failed attempts at the new you. We all wish we could push a button and re-align our old habits into the new routine we seek.

Daily Devotional: Something Great

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow” (1 Corinthians 3:6).

When God gets ready to do something great, He prepares the way. One thing leads to another and when the time is right, God arrives to do what only He can do. So don’t be bogged down today by […]

Daily Devotional: Priceless

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, […]

Notes from Matt Didway and Ben Passmore

I literally grew up in church. I’m a preacher’s kid, and my mom started a school in the church. It didn’t matter if the doors were locked, I was there. I LOVED my church, and it felt like a family reunion every Sunday: grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. That place was my home.

Unfortunately, the church […]

Daily Devotional: Only a Rumor

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” When King Herod heard this he was […]
