Fixer Upper – Community

The people of Israel found themselves living in a foreign land, surrounded by strange customs and even stranger people. But in the midst of their exile, God gave them some curious instructions- instruction that surely raised some eyebrows from God’s people as they tried to live faithfully in a distant land. What does God ask…

Fixer Upper – Home

There’s always that one family member that makes life difficult. And with that comes our sense of responsibility to somehow solve the problem. We either ignore that person and their activities, or we pour every ounce of ourselves into somehow turning that person around. Either way, we end up creating a more unhealthy situation than…

Fixer Upper – Life (part 1)

Have you ever been really thirsty? Not just a casual thirst, but that kind of thirst you get after working outside in the heat. Your mouth is dry. Your body is tired. As long as it’s a cold liquid, you don’t care what you get to drink. You just want to have it. That first…

In every relationship there are inevitable conflicts that arise. Christ-followers are not immune to conflict, but we are given very helpful instructions in the Bible on how to fight fairly. Today’s message offers practical tools that will help you have better relationships by enabling you to navigate conflict in a more healthy manner.

What You Do Matters

What is driving your life? Is it fear? Resentment? A yearning for achievement, recognition and success? One can reach the pinnacle of worldly success and still experience feelings of emptiness and despair. “In Christ” we find our true, God-given purpose and in the process, experience deeper levels of peace and significance. Track along with this…

Divine Comfort

Most of us think of the Holy Spirit as divine Power. The story of Pentecost could definitely be taken as a science fiction story…or rather, science non-fiction! Can you imagine it? A great wind sweeping through the room! Tongues of flame resting on the heads of the disciples! The disciples preaching the word of God…

Winning Our Battles – In Due Time

Some of us have been through a lot. And there are probably situations and events that make our trials seem endless, and it feels like you just want to lay down your weapons and either make a hasty retreat or surrender to life’s downfalls. It feels easy to take that direction, but that’s just what…
