Our Nation's Independence

 This week we celebrate the 4th of July – our nation's independence. Independence is a good thing as long as it doesn't translate into a feeling of independence upon Almighty God.

This Sunday we will talk about our freedom “in Christ” and how a secular society wars against God's Kingdom. Not all of our founding fathers were believers, yet there was a profound respect for the place Christ played in the hearts of the early citizens.

We will ask what a secular society looks like and how believers can properly respond to the frightening trends of the day.

The Greatest Immigration II

 This Sunday we continue our study on The Greatest Immigration.  People risk everything in order to experience “the better life.”  Our nation used to welcome immigrants, but all the illegal border busters has changed our opinion. 

Truth is, when we look back in history, the first illegal immigrants were the pilgrims.  No visas, no permission, no invitation to enter this land we call America, but they came in droves until the entire population reflected a new nation. 

How are believers to respond to all the modern border busters?  This Sunday we will seek Christ's heart on this matter. 

Greatest Immigration Story in History

 What was the greatest immigration in history? The Hebrew Exodus? Pilgrims coming to the New World. Twentieth century Europeans coming to America? Illegal aliens in our present day?

None of these.

Sunday we will talk about immigration – why people do it - and what Jesus has to say about those seeking a better life.

God's Plan For Fathers

 This week's Father's Day message will feature two very popular songs of our day, Because You Loved Me, written by Diane Warren and The Greatest Man I Never Knew, performed by Reba McIntyre. Two very different songs tell two very different stories about the influence and power of fathers in the home.

If your children wrote a song about your influence, what would the words reveal about you? Dads need a plan if their children are to receive and carry a message of hope for their future.

Sunday we will discuss the plan.

True North


 This Sunday, we will take some time to congratulate and pray over our three graduating high school seniors. As we see in so many examples in Scripture, we all have the opportunity to share from our faith and experiences with our friends and family. So, this week, several of our members as well as the familes of our graduating seniors will be sharing what they have learned and what God has shared in their lives.

Come join us!

Three Classic Lies

 This past week I read an article on the web entitled, Ten Lies We Believe by John Locke. It was primarily about the lies we accept in the arena of politics, and how blinded we are by the media and Hollywood. Locke's words were quite radical, and it made me wonder about the many lies we that affect Christian community.

This Sunday we will look at three classic lies about happiness and how the Holy Spirit weighs in on the subject of lies and happiness.

Fine Tuning Our Prayer Life

 Mark 9 tells the story of how the disciples failed to exorcize a demon from a man's son. The disciples were saying and doing the right things; but without the desired results.

They had the authority to heal and drive out demons, and yet this time there was failure. Why is it that some prayers seem to get no answers? In story, Jesus will be addressing what to do when close to a breakthrough.

What do we need to know about prayer that will help us get to the next level?

Family Time

 This Sunday, you're invited to join us as we meet together to build up our family. Encouragement, recognition and spiritual renewal are our themes so bring your family, and enjoy some time with a caring family who believes God has already won the war and that the Spirit will carry us through this life. And depending on the weather, we'll cap off the day with some food and fellowship at a picnic.

See you Sunday!

It's Mother's Day

 Since this Sunday is Mother's Day, we will be honoring our moms and families as a part of our morning worship services. God tells us many times in His scriptures the importance of families and His love for all of us.

Come join us this week as we praise God and honor our moms.

What I Believe - Part Two

 This Sunday will be part two of What I Believe.  One's faith is anchored by core values – truths that keep us focused on the prize – truths that serve as mile posts in our journey.  Last Sunday we examined core values from God's perspective – what He offers for us to embrace. 

This Sunday we will examine core values from our perspective – our response to God's story of grace.  Any long journey produces insight that illuminates the path. 

These lights that come on not only assist us, they show those who follow us the way “home.”
