    Avoiding a Shallow Life
    There’s a battle going on in the boardroom of your soul. This week we meet the six members of the board. Their names are Mind, Heart, Will, Conscience, Memory and Imagination. They meet in secret to hammer out your thoughts, decisions and actions. Yet they are each motivated by self-interest. This Sunday we’ll learn how a new chairperson can bring your dysfunctional soul into alignment.

    Messy Love: Decision
    Love is not a feeling but a decision. We usually link how we treat people to how they behave or how we feel about them. God's command to love our neighbor as ourselves pushes us past our feelings and calls us to make the decisive decision to love others. Come this Sunday for God to reorient you away from treating others based on what they do and instead on what Jesus has done.

    Messy Love: Sacrifice
    Messy love means self sacrifice. This Sunday we eavesdrop on Jesus’ conversation with a rich man. Jesus tells him to give up all his wealth and follow Jesus. This makes us ask, “What do we need to give up in order to follow Jesus?” Come this Sunday asking this questions, but come ready to hear what you might not expect!

    Messy Love: Forgiveness
    We begin our fall message “Messy: Loving Others Isn’t Easy!” Love messes with us: making us honestly deal with the messes in our lives, and it makes us really deal with the messes others cause for us. Forgiveness is a very messy part of love! Yet only forgiveness releases us as we release others. This Sunday we’ll invite the Holy Spirit to bring this healing in and through us. Come ready for a mess!

    Series: FAQ's
    The Bible is trustworthy and reliable, as verified by manuscript evidence, textual criticism and archeology. This Sunday there’s a lot of heady information as we learn about how these sciences support the Bible. Yet what we really learn it that it’s not really about the Bible. It’s about the God of the Bible. We open our lives to God’s living Word, to make us new. The Bible speaks God’s words of life!

    This Sunday we’re celebrating Camping Sunday! We need mountain-top experiences to sustain us in our discipleship.

Worship will be outside, so bring a lawn chair and hat.

    All Things Are Possible with Faith
    What an exciting Sunday - it’s Confirmation Sunday! Our five Confirmation students (Aimire Lloyd, Jacqueline Wyne, Katelyn Bautch, Noah Bonsell and Tony Lloyd) will all share their faith testimonies and publically commit to follow Jesus. Two of them (Aimire and Tony) will also be baptized! We will see how God takes the tiny, shaky faith–like the size of a mustard seed–and grow it into a large and committed maturity–like a tall mustard tree. Come expecting your faith to also grow this Sunday, too! We will worship outdoors again: bring a hat and lawn chair, or there will also be spaces for drive-in worship.

    Live Free: Do Not Covet
    If you could have anyone’s car, home, abilities, physical appearance, spouse, or life, whose would you have? Notice, as you consider this question, the awakening of that inner “itchy” feeling as you want what you can’t have. That’s coveting. It’s not just wanting (we all want nice things), but it’s the inner restlessness in wanting what is (or should be) beyond your grasp. This Sunday our discipleship goal is to want instead what God wants for us.

Be together safely as a church community, 2. Pray for our communities during this trying time, 3. Grow in our discipleship through prayer, and 4. Be visible in our community witnessing to our hope in God. Come if you are able! If not, pray along with the worship recording.
