Don't Waste Your Easter!

Many Christians get riled up about Satan’s attacks on Christmas. Santa, tinsel, and gifts get in the way of seeing the baby in the manger. I get that. However, I get more upset about what our enemy does with Easter. I’m not just talking about fuzzy bunnies and egg hunts, although those do turn our gaze away from the empty tomb. I’m talking about something more insidi...

This is Your Green Light

Every story of influence and impact has a "once upon a time." There has never been a world changing idea that was already happening, there has never been an epic story without a beginning, and there will never be a person of influence without a starting point to the journey.

Radical Hospitality

People are searching for churches that make them feel welcome and loved, needed, and accepted. I have heard it said of guests coming to check out a church for the first time that “This Sunday is the only Sunday that counts.” The impressions that person makes of a worshiping community are quickly developed within minutes (or dare I say seconds?) of walking into a wors...

A Letter to Grace's Mentors

We recognize is that our journey is not over just because she has professed her faith. We know that as her parents we have the ongoing primary responsibility to disciple our children. Each and every day we have the privilege to teach our children the ways of God and his goodness (Deuteronomy 6:4-11)....

Profession of Faith - Grace Vroom

Milestones. Kids’ lives are filled with them: first smile, first tooth, first word, first step, first day of school, first time behind the wheel.... Doting parents record these important milestones in baby books and flood the inboxes of family and friends with emails and Facebook updates. But there are other milestones as well... "the ones we celebrate in the church with...
