  • Parent CafeTue, Mar 24
    When: Tuesday, March 24 at 6:00pm
    Where: The Lodge

    TOPIC: How do I know if my child is growing a real faith? It’s fair to say that a majority of us have struggled with this question at some point. Join us as we eat dinner together in the Lodge and discuss this meaningful but difficult question.

    Parent Cafés are designed to be a time to discuss different topics that are struggles for most people who are in parenting roles, as we share meals and conversations while discovering together that we are not alone on this journey called parenting. The word CAFÉ is an acronym for what the evening is designed to accomplish. This is an environment designed for us to C-onnect, A-cknowledge that we don’t have it all together, F-ocus on what really matters, and E-ncourage each other. In short, this is an evening designed to support, encourage, and help equip each other for this parenting journey.

Pastor’s Note: Praying for a Christmas Miracle

These past few weeks in the Minor Prophets have been hard but good for me. They have hurt in a healing way. God has called my heart out and called my heart home. The list of idols He has shown me in my life has grown (I had to get a bigger notepad), and so has the assurance of his unending… [more]

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]
