The Gospel In Seven Words

As we gather for Ash Wednesday, we will examine our theme – “The Gospel In Seven Words”. Imagine you have the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Could you share it quickly and clearly? Try to present it in just seven words. Throughout our Lenten Season, we will develop our testimony to be…

Listen to Him!

When Peter, James, and John climbed the mountain with Jesus, the disciples saw Him as He truly was – as the Son of God standing with Moses and Elijah, dazzling in brightness. When God spoke, he simply said, “Listen to Him!” Jesus later asks them if they have been paying attention. There is a difference…

Teaching with Authority

Remember getting ready for the first day of school… thinking about what kind of teacher we would want? A teacher who knows their stuff, and teaches with authority! Jesus cast out demons with authority–this made the disciples’ first day of school exciting! May we be filled with this same excitement for His word and His…

Go Fish!

Ever played go fish? Holding on to your cards is the goal. You don’t know what you’ll get in the card game – skill patience and faith are required. Jesus asked the disciples to fishing for people instead of fish–what a concept! Simon Peter and Andrew left their boats to fish for people. They did…

The Word Made Flesh

Themes of Love

Throughout the Bible, God brought themes of love showing how he cared for his children. When He sent His one and only Son Jesus as a baby and a king, this was the ultimate expression of His love for the Israelites, and for us today! Let’s listen as we look forward to celebrating His Birth…

Sheltered by the Shepherd

Who holds authority over us? A boss, a spouse, a baby? Jesus came to earth as a baby, yet He held authority then and now. The authority of Christ over his flock is clear, as the Good Shepherd He laid down His life, was resurrected and continues to watch over His flock today! We pray…

What’s in a name?

Why are names important to us? Last names mean something, often stemming from what their ancestors did. Jesus’ name meant “he will save his people from their sins”. He lived up to his name as Christ the anointed one. We too are anointed through baptism as Christians. With this anointing comes responsibility, and our behavior…
