The Coming King

The Coming King is a series of four Christmas messages that will explore the everyday humanity and glorious death of Jesus. In this Advent series we will see why we can hope in him, how Jesus is the power of God to transform our bleak situations, how the glory of the Son of God calls our hearts to genuinely soul-satisfying worship, and what difference it makes in our lives that Jesus endured the trials on our behalf....Keep Reading

Investigating Communion

For those of you who have been around for any length of time, you know that we have now for nearly six – seven years been celebrating communion on a weekly basis. The sweet words “The body of Christ broken for you” and “The blood of Christ poured out for you” have been heart-warming words. We have been thankful remembrance of Christ’s ongoing work in our life, celebrating God in our midst, enjoying that sweet communion with God and one another; we’ve been feed and nourished by the gospel and all the while looking forward to that day where we will eat and drink with Christ when all things have been made new. ...Keep Reading

Someone that understands our longings, our hopes, our desires, our need for wholeness, both now and for eternity. - See more at: Reading

As we looked to the future, our vision and mission, convictions, and consciences drew us to our new denominational home, the Presbyterian Church in America. Knowing that there is no such thing as a perfect denomination, we believe we will find greater unity on issues that we consider to be of great importance....Keep Reading

Thank You Friends

So, here is my confession: There is a group of men that I can honestly stay that I love. They are spread out across the globe. They have encouraged me, prayed for me, challenged me, and have consistently pointed me to Christ. Who are these men? They are a group of pastors. Through the ministry of friendship they have caused me to flourish....Keep Reading
