Renovation Update

NOTE: Worship Time & Location Change!

As our renovations continue, we are at a point in the work that we will temporarily lack heat and shut-off of our electric by the City. The new HVAC units have been installed. Work on the mural will begin in the near future. The Church Council feels that it will be in everyone's best interest to temporarily move our worship across the street to the Girl's Inc. social hall. With this move, the council decided to hold a single worship service beginning at 9:30 a.m. with no Sunday school.

Let's Get Started!

This is it – school is finished, and summer has officially begun! After about a week of lounging on the couch, your kids will realize how much time they have on their hands. They can only watch so much TV, and it’s not healthy for them to be on screens an additional 35 hours per week. Of course, the first thing you will probably hear when you limit the devices is a loud chorus of “I’m bored!” Contrary to kids’ opinions, boredom is not bad. It’s a breeding ground for creativity.

Honoring THE FATHER this Father’s Day…

Around this time every year, my children begin to ask what their father would like for Father’s Day. My answer is always the same, “He doesn’t need anything, he would just like to share the day with you!” Of course, they aren’t satisfied with that answer and usually begin the search for a unique gift. But honestly, what father wouldn’t like to spend the day with their children, or even to just receive a phone call from that far-away child.

Created, Called, Crowned

Life is a series of seasons. During challenging seasons—from unique phases of life and rites of passage to the days surrounding deeply meaningful occasions like Mother’s Day or birthdays—it is not uncommon to wonder about our purpose in life or even question it if we ever knew what it was. As a child, I remember being asked to draw a picture of what I wanted to be when I grew up. It seemed so simple back then to dream up anything and just run with it, but somehow as we grow older we can be...

Spring: A Time to Start Anew

Springtime is a season of new beginnings, especially as we continue to celebrate new life following Easter. But in a lot of ways, spring is also about endings. With school projects and papers due, graduations looming, final exams to take, and end-of-year concerts and tournaments, you can get weighed down. Sometimes it is hard to find your inspiration, that spark that makes you feel like the next project or task is worth completing, rehearsing or studying. You have what it takes inside of you to...

A shaft of light...

We have all walked “tomb-ward” like Mary, on a morning of defeat or despair or deep grief. Pick up the daily paper. Evidence that evil is growing, death reigns, and sin is triumphant is splashed across the front page. It is not the newspaper’s fault. That is just life. Defeat, despair, and deep grief are all around us and yes, within us.

Waving your palm...

It’s not every Sunday you receive a gift at church. However, on Palm Sunday, we will distribute palm branches to those who attend worship. You may see long palm blades that can be folded into a cross while our worship leaders may be using the leafy palms to wave during the singing of hymns. The palm branches that waved during Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem were a sign of Jewish pride and victory. With so many Jews gathered in town for the Passover festival, it is not surprising that palm...

Lent and Promises

Someone once counted all the promises in the Bible, and said there are a total of 8,810.  Of these, 7,487—about 85% of the total—are God’s promises to us, and these are utterly reliable (Nelson’s Complete Book of Stories, Illustrations, & Quotes, p. 645).  We can afford to trust in God’s promises to us throughout our lives; one day we will be judged on whether we’ve kept our baptismal promises to Him.
