Dear friends, let us “L” one another, for “L” comes from God. Everyone who “L”s has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not “L” does not know God, because God is “L”.  I John 4:7-8So, this Sunday will be brought to you by the letter “L” in the word F-A-M-I-L-Y. Anyone care to guess what it is? I know, that’s an easy one...or is it? It may be an easy one to answer, but it seems more and mo...  Read More

Maybe for you the word “family” brings warm, joyful feelings and memories wrapped around the people you love the most. Maybe the word family simply turns you off. I get it. Relationships are hard. The closer they are, the more powerfully they influence us - for good or for bad...or for both. But the truth is, we can’t escape “family”. If nothing else, we are part of the big “human family”. But we ...  Read More

Family is just too important. Although much of the world is eager to discard the whole idea of family, it is God’s plan and when done right, our “family” can provide the most life-giving and rewarding relationships in our world. So let’s not throw away our family, let’s work to improve it. The last two Sundays have given us great opportunities to gather and worship as a spiritual family and gain s...  Read More

Family is God’s design. Families are where we find purpose and belonging. It’s in the context of family where we grow into the person God destined us to be. Family becomes a safe place, a place where our deepest needs are met and the place where genuine and life-long relationships are forged. But not all “family” environments are healthy. Family dysfunction is the baseline for TV sitcoms - but it’...  Read More

Leaders Change the world! It’s not all about power and authority, it’s about impact. And who better to impact an uncertain and slightly CRAZY world than the people of God. This isn’t about an agenda, it’s about giving people a Jesus-centered, life-giving vision for moving forward through troubling and uncertain times. Last week we talked about the importance of leading with moral authority. If you...  Read More

Do you want to be an irresistible leader? Have you ever met someone that you and others are just drawn to follow - or at least listen to? What makes a leader the kind of person people want to follow? Jesus was just that kind of leader. He had no authority in worldly terms. He wasn't a government official, He didn’t own a company, He had no title or even letters after his name. It wasn’t positional...  Read More

As I look around me, it seems our world is shell-shocked. Between an unexpected pandemic, social unrest, deep racial and political division, Facebook drama, hurricanes and wildfires and even plagues of locust, people just seem beat up and dazed. This season has been tough! There is a time and place for taking a seat and catching your breath. But there also comes a point when it is time to stand up...  Read More

Have you ever been a part of a unified family or team? There’s just something so pleasing and satisfying about being a part of something bigger than yourself with people you love and who love you back. But it seems like we are getting further and further from communal unity and mutual joy. We hope you will join us in person or online this Sunday as we study God’s Word for insights on building rela...  Read More
