Can We Trust God?

“…And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:17) Easier said than done, right? There’s a lot of things we do each day without giving a thought, care or prayer about how we accomplished it. Today, Pastor Rick let us in on how our routine, daily lives can become a true testimony of hope.

When Christians Get It Wrong

In the realm of belief, a frequent speedbump that presents itself is that of truth or love. Isn’t providing wisdom, knowledge or honesty a form of love? Of course! But it may fall short or be completely rejected by the person on the receiving end. Today, Pastor Brian talks about how truth and grace are presented in the bible.

Ruth: An Example of Friendship

Coming out of a year-long social “turbulence,” it will be evermore important to build relationships that last—specifically friendships! What does it take to create, repair and strengthen our bonds? In this example of Ruth, we have the opportunity to be more like Jesus in every relationship we find ourselves.

But while He was alive, Jesus claimed something that still remains controversial today: “I am the way and the truth and the life.” So together in church, we think deeper about what He meant by that. We invite you to consider His ministry, resurrection and message.

Law or Love & Light?

Law or Love & Light?

The story of a woman doing wrong is the heart of today’s teaching. And the reply of which Jesus offers holds the merit.

But what’s the best way to respond to those of others?

And not simply to walk the physical path behind but to abandon the selfish ways and desires of our own hearts; to truly lay down our wants and put God above all else. When He is at the center is when we can live in greater peace, love and joy.
