Pillars of Grace: Freedom & Unity (Galatians 2:1-10)

10/15/17. Week 3 in Galatians. In a day of division and identity politics, what does true Christian unity look like? Can we honor God, and love people? Or are personal freedom and church unity opposed?

The End of Self-Supremacy (Psalm 73)

8/20/17. Week 10 in Summer Psalms. The End of Self-Supremacy (Psalm 73).

We took a moment as a whole congregation to consider the historical moment in the world, and in our nation, to pause and interpret these things through the lens of Scripture. We let the Word of God as a whole, and Psalm 73 specifically, interpret current events for us.

(Quotes shared also appear on blog page.)

Where there is Darkness, He is the Light (Psalm 67)

7/23/17. Week 7 in Summer Psalms. Where there is Darkness, He is the Light (Psalm 67).

During Renew Family Camp we paused on Sunday morning to read, sing, pray, and rejoice in the Gospel of Christ.

Psalm 67 reminds us that God is the Light of the world, even in the darkness that surrounds.

Receiving the Word in its Full Power (Mark 4:1-20)

11/6/16. Week 10 in the Gospel of Mark. Jesus spoke in parables as a filter for His true followers to grasp the truths of the Kingdom of God. In this parable King Jesus teaches the hidden power at work in His followers who plant our hopes in the good soil of the Gospel.

In His Right Mind, Lord of All (Mark 3:20-35)

10/30/16. Week 9 in the Gospel of Mark. Continuing with the same passage as last Sunday, we consider the words about Jesus, and the reasonable options available to us:
Is He insane?
Is He a liar?
Is He a good teacher of peace and love?
Or is He the Lord of all?
