We had a great day in Children's Ministry yesterday morning! If you are wondering what your child is learning in their classes, this is the place to look!  Every week we have what the children learned posted here!   Training in the Pews Songs we sang: The Golden Rule, Open God's Word, Go Tell It On The Mountain, 10,000 Reasons ("Bless The Lord Oh My Soul")  The Lesson: Taught by Laura Hobbs Luke 19:1-10 The lesson was on Zacchaeus and how he was a "wee" man.  Laura asked the kids what "wee" meant ("short/small") and then talked to ...

Connection Points: Hypocrisy

“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them…  When you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others...  And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites.  For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others...  And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fast may be seen by others......

Work on the building is coming along nicely. In the Sanctuary, the wood wing walls are being built and look beautiful. The stage has been constructed and will receive its final flooring soon. I’ve also attached a few pictures of the cross that will hang under the arch being constructed.  It looks incredible. Additionally, the final sheetrock and detail work in the Sanctuary is being finished so that they can sand and stain the floor. On Friday of this week, they will pour concrete into the basement to cover the pool and the new stairwell....

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. 41 And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 ...

Hi Friends, One of the questions I often receive is how folks can be involved with the building project.  So, I’m excited to share one practical way that you can connect.  Our staff has developed an online Wishlist.  Our building funds are helping us furnish the building with everything we’ll need for effective ministry.  But, those funds are limited and we’ve been careful to spend them on the items of highest priority.  So, we decided to give you the opportunity to fund specific things that are important to you. You can ...

Work on the facility is moving along at a nice pace.  Every week, there are substantial changes happening.  As you can see from the photos, much of the upstairs has a first coat of paint, completed HVAC, and electical work.  Cabinets and other detailed millwork are being installed.  Those areas will sit now, waiting for the remainder of the building to catch-up.  In the final weeks, they will receive fresh paint, carpet, and other finishes.  In the Sancuary, the stage is almost complete which means they will finish the dropped side wood ...

What is Lent, anyway?

March 05, 2014
Tom Gibbs
According to the Christian calendar, today is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of the season of Lent. For many Christians, especially Protestant Evangelicals, Lent is viewed as either an empty ritual characterized by trivial acts of self-denial, like giving up chocolate, sweets or carbonated beverages, or worse, it is a gross distortion of the Christian faith perpetuating the notion that we actually contribute something to our salvation through self-denial. Sadly, its practice often gets dismissed before we ever come to understand its ...

33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, ‘Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.’” (Matthew 5:33-37) Exp ...
