Love for others will continue to be our overarching priority as we return. To that end, and in keeping with our local government guidelines, we will continue to practice physical distancing in the building.

Some of the sweetest times for small groups/gatherings or families are when they can participate in the Lord’s Supper together. The Bible stresses the importance of unity in Communion, which is why taking Communion with those you do life with on a regular basis can be powerful....

God has a purpose for us on this earth. That calling is to be on mission for God where He has placed us. And since many people spend the majority of their waking hours on the job, we have to stop compartmentalizing life into “spiritual activities” and “work activities.” How are we living examples of the gospel while we work? ...Keep Reading
Like the sun keeping planets in orbit, God is at the center of existence and our lives are meant to center on Him. The truth is that our lives often don't center on Him. Most of us go each day unaware of the unimaginable power of God. The grand narrative of scripture began with God and all of history centers around God. But we constantly fail to center our lives on Him an...Keep Reading
