Pastors Note: I Need Prayer
Pastors Note: I Need Prayer

I hate sensationalized headlines. As a former journalist, I find such “click bait” quite frustrating. But I decided that the headline above isn’t sensationalized; it’s just true. I need prayer. I haven’t received a bad medical diagnosis; I love my wife; I’m thankful to be… [more]

Session Update
Session Update

The Session rejoices in the many ways we see God working to connect us to one another and grow us in Gospel Community this fall. We encourage you to lean in to your new small groups and your Connect Communities and pray with us for those still seeking to develop those vital relationships.… [more]

Behold the 20th Anniversary
Behold the 20th Anniversary

I remember starting my sophomore year in college in 1999. That fall semester was so much fun. I’d figured out my way around a new city, a new school, and an eclectic group of friends. My confidence was high and my optimism was off the charts. It was a good year. There were at least… [more]

My Cat Thinks I’m Bono
My Cat Thinks I’m Bono

I have a cat named Aslan. He’s an apple head Siamese. He’s 14 years old, and regardless of what you may think about cats versus dogs, he is an incredible pet. I’m convinced that Aslan thinks that I’m a rock star - rock star on the level of Bono. Wherever I go, whatever I do,… [more]

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Committed Attending

It is confusing to live in the world today. Short attention spans dominate the culture, especially when it comes to junior and senior high youth. They learned it from us, though, so they come by it naturally. Some of you remember the anticipation… [more]

Repentance!: The Pathway to Joy
Repentance!: The Pathway to Joy

“Repent!” That command is not usually connected with the word “joy.” Repenting is a negative, painful thing we must do as believers, a “necessary evil.” There is no joy in acknowledging how I have done wrong. It brings guilt and shame, which is never pleasant. So, how can… [more]

Why You Should Go on a Short-Term Mission
Why You Should Go on a Short-Term Mission

Go to Africa? How about Peru? Maybe India? France? Not me, you say; I would have nothing to offer. Well, I used to think like that, too! But then God called me to go on a specific mission trip sponsored by our church. The church equipped us and so I went. Other people I knew went also.… [more]

All That’s Fair: I Doubt It
All That’s Fair: I Doubt It

Suffering is universal. If you haven’t experienced suffering, just wait. It will come to you. There are varying degrees and different types of suffering, but it’s inevitable that all of us will feel it. And it’s futile to fight it because there’s really nothing you can do to… [more]
