    “ Grounded in an Empty Hole”
    Matthew 28:1-10 “Suddenly Jesus met them and greeted them. They came and grabbed His feet and worshiped Him.”
    Easter changes everything! This is why Jesus came. Our God brought to us the power over dirt, the dirt that covers us in sin, and the dirt that covers our graves. On Easter, Jesus rose from the dead and busted open the power of death. We celebrate life abundant now grounded on earth and eternally grounded in Jesus. Our faith is grounded in an empty hole!

    “Who Can Accept This?”
    John 6:25-64
    God is good all the time, but sometimes he is also confusing.  We all have questions about God that seem to defy answers and this can lead to frustration.  As we continue in our "Grounded" series we are going to see how Jesus brings heavenly truth into our earthly life and what we can do to wrap our heads around it all.

    “UMW Sunday”
    By: Guest
  • Jan 29, 2017“Walking ahead of Jesus”
    Jan 29, 2017
    “Walking ahead of Jesus”
    Luke 10:1-20
    We often think of Christians as following Jesus. When Jesus called the first disciples, He called them to follow Him. Yet, early on in His earthly ministry, Jesus sent disciples on ahead of Him, to go before Him. They were to prepare others to receive Jesus when He comes. Jesus is still coming into all parts of our world. This Sunday we’ll learn how to get out in front of Jesus as the best way to follow Him!
  • Jan 22, 2017“Staying Stuck”
    Jan 22, 2017
    “Staying Stuck”
    Mark 1:32-34
    Jesus healed people when He walked on earth. We also hear about people who are miraculously healed by God still today. We all pray regularly for God to heal people. Yet there are so many who God does NOT seem to heal. God can, but doesn’t. Why? Why does God heal some and not others in this life? This Sunday, as we walk with Jesus, we’ll try to understand the purpose of Jesus’ healing ministry.
  • Jan 15, 2017“Getting Our Feet Dirty”
    Jan 15, 2017
    “Getting Our Feet Dirty”
    Luke 5:1-11
    When Jesus came to earth, He called disciples to travel with Him. They were His friends, and they joined Him in His work. That’s what Christians do. We follow Jesus. We do His work. Not only did Jesus die for us and win our forgiveness and eternal life, He also calls us to live with and for Him now. This Sunday we will walk with Jesus around Capernaum and Galilee, and we will discover what it means to follow Him.
  • Jan 8, 2017“Holy (Land) Dirt!”
    Jan 8, 2017
    “Holy (Land) Dirt!”
    Luke 4:16-30
    There He goes! Jesus is off and running. Well, not literally. But we now see Jesus fully grown and beginning His public ministry. What did Jesus understand His purpose to be on earth? Why, did He say, did He come? Here is God, in the form of a person, walking the dusty roads of the Holy Land. Why is He here? This Sunday we’ll start tracing Jesus’ travels, and we’ll eavesdrop as we hear Him explain why He came to earth. It might surprise you!
  • Jan 1, 2017“Someone Else’s Dirt”
    Jan 1, 2017
    “Someone Else’s Dirt”
    Matthew 2:1-12
    Christmas can become a very selfish holiday. We get presents, we get time off work, we want to spend time doing what we want. Sometimes we can be like those kids who pout because they didn’t get what they wanted. But deep in the Christmas story is an “and also.” Christmas is for us,
    and also for them. Christmas is about God’s focus on other people, too. We need to take care not to keep Christmas just for ourselves. This Sunday, as we hear about the Magi who come from the East, God will shift our focus and also
    to others.
  • Dec 18, 2016“He Has Come”
    Dec 18, 2016
    “He Has Come”
    Luke 1:67-79
    Do you have that inner sense that you were made for something more? It’s as if you are part of a bigger story, a larger purpose. Well, you’re right! Your story started long ago. It is mysteriously linked with the baby that was born that first Christmas. Something happened then that touches you now. Celebrating Christmas is not just a holiday, it’s you embracing your destiny. Don’t miss this Sunday when we peer back into Christmas and see God who has come, for you!
  • Dec 11, 2016“Seeable God”
    Dec 11, 2016
    “Seeable God”
    Isaiah 7:14
    Sometimes it seems like God is far off, distant, aloof. We struggle day by day, “messing around in the mud,” and we wonder if God even cares. God is the almighty, who created all things. But at Christmas we discover that God also notices..that God comes to us–among us...and that God helps us. This Sunday we’ll look back deep into the Old Testament prophesies foretelling of a God who gets down into the mud...even our mud!
  • Dec 4, 2016“Dirty Hands”
    Dec 4, 2016
    “Dirty Hands”
    Genesis 1:1-3
    Many people struggle emotionally during the winter months when the hours of daylight are limited. Yet it is during the least-houred days of the year (right after the winter solstice) that Christians celebrate Christmas. We celebrate that into the darkness of our lives, God brings the dawning of a new light. Jesus was born as the Light of the world. It’s real! It really happened! This Sunday we’ll celebrate how in Jesus, the God who always was, got involved in life, our lives! He was willing to get dirty, get Himself full of dirt, to be our light. If you are bummed about the lack of light in your life, don’t miss this Sunday!

    “The Path To Peace”
    Series: Guest Sermon
    Isaiah 2: 1-5
    Sunday, November 27th, is the first Sunday of Advent, the four week season of the church year that leads up to Christmas. The season celebrates the continual coming of the Christ in Word and Spirit. We are called to prepare for this coming. Each Sunday has a distinctive theme. This first Sunday proclaims Christ’s coming for the conversion of all nations in a great final feast of lasting peace, where all weapons of destruction are remade into implements of health and wholeness. The text in Isaiah 2: 1-5 calls us once again to consider this vision for world peace and the path that leads us there. In the
    I will share my faith and conviction that God can do this through us as we follow Jesus, even in our war torn world.

    “Hello, my name is…”
    Series: Guest Sermon
    Jonah 1 - 4
    "It is human nature to see characteristics of ourselves in characters that we read about. When reading the Bible, I love to imagine myself as a character like Paul, Abraham, Moses, or any other powerful figure. As I grow in my faith, I find that I align with a much less powerful figure. As Christians today, what can we learn from a prophet that ran from God?"

  • Nov 6, 2016“Save All You Can”
    Nov 6, 2016
    “Save All You Can”
    Proverbs 31:10-31
    Save has two meanings for Christians! One is that Jesus saves us from our sins, and saves us for a relationship with Him that lasts in eternity. The other is a money idea, that we save up our resources for needs and times that are coming. God blesses us so that we are equipped to live into our mission. This Sunday we’ll be talking about how the discipline of saving money makes possible future ministry we
    can’t yet see. This is the second of our messages on money: Earn
    , Save and Give.

Here are some ways for you to take worship home with you this week!
Memory Verse
 (review at least once a day):
“Glory to God, who is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine by His power at work within us.” -Ephesians 
Digging Deeper
Read: Ephesians 3:16-21. (Or read all of chapter 3.)
Reflect: What are the main requests Paul is praying for the Christians in Ephesus in this passage?
Look out at creation or a beautiful picture of nature. Reflection on the expanse of Christ’s love (v.18).
Discuss: How does God’s love surpass our knowledge (v.19)? 
What from God’s riches (v.16) do you need right now?
Pray: [Consider kneeling (v.14) when you pray.]
Ask for the Holy Spirit to give you power to grasp God’s love better (v. 18)
Ask to be filled with fullness of God (v.19).
End by praying verses 20-21.
With Kids:
Activity: Some evening after dinner, gather together in the living room and build a fort together.  What materials should you use?  What characteristics should it have? 
Discuss together:
What makes a fort strong?
How is God like a mighty fortress?
What does God protect us from?
Read: Find a couple of different versions of Psalm 18:2.  Read though each one.  Note where there are different words but the same meaning.
Activity: Come up with a version as a family that makes the most sense to you.  Post it on the fridge or in the bathroom mirror.
