Salt & Light

Philip Pattison | Matthew 5:13-16 | 11/3/2019

Jesus taught his followers to live by a better way, as a part of a different kingdom. In Matthew 5, He uses two common everyday things, salt & light, to describe what kind of people we should strive to be in the world. 

The Danger of Losing Jesus in the Middle of Celebrations

Take It to the World

Ron Cline | John 4:27-37 | 2/25/2018

A Pure and Undefiled Reflection

Jason Johnson | Galatians 4:4-7 | 11/5/2017

God’s heart undeniably bends towards the marginalized and vulnerable. We see this truth consistently play out in scripture from the beginning to the end. It’s the foundation of our own story of redemption - that God would pursue us - and it’s the basis of the unique privilege He has given us to care for others around us. Our call as the Church to engage in issues of adoption, foster care, and orphan care are deeply rooted in God’s care of us.

Dead to Sin, Alive to Righteousness

Al Streder | 1 Peter 2:24 | 7/21/2013

That the Lord Jesus bore our sins in his body on the cross changes everything for the one who believes in Him.  There is a sense in which we die with him – we die to sin, but we are raised to new life; and we live to righteousness.

Lift Up Your Eyes

Tim Theule | John 4:34-38 | 3/13/2011

Jesus says in John 4:35 “Do you not say,  ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’?
