On this day when we as a nation celebrate our independence and our freedom, let those of us in God's family remember that we are ultimately created to use that freedom to submit to God, to deny ourselves and to seek what God desires.

Elijah’s ministry is a message of repentance. It is a call to God’s people to turn back to God, to submit to God’s plan to turn their hearts back again to Him. The repentance Elijah preaches is not simply a decision of the mind, it is an authentic turning of one’s heart. When our hearts are turned, we are ready to embrace God.

In case you hadn't noticed, the American political climate is a raging dumpster fire on social media. When was the last time someone actually changed their mind because of a Twitter rage, or a Facebook tirade?
Are the words of Jesus to "do to others as you would have them do to you" needed now more among Christians in our current climate?

Where Is God When It HurtsFebruary 17th, 2019
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why does God allow his children (whom he claims to love) to suffer when he could remove their suffering? Where is God when it hurts?
How do you deal with being disappointed with God? Is it wrong to be disappointed with God?

The story of the Exodus highlights to tension in our human condition. Even after the Lord displayed his miraculous might, the people were prone to want to return to oppression. Today, we display the same lack of faith and trust.

A Work Camp RecapJune 11th, 2017
What does it take to produce twelve happy homeowners who have had their houses painted for free by Central Ohio Work Camp? In short, a lot. It takes a lot of manpower (teenpower?), supplies, time, money, prayer and selfless dedication of God's people to believe that he can take our acts of service and change the hearts and lives of people in our city.

We were created in the image of God, and we are meant to connect in the image of God. This can only happen when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable with each other. Vulnerability is difficult, but it's also necessary to create sacred spaces and welcome God into our relationships.

We're not meant to be "fixers" (which is how our society works), we're meant to be in relationship. And relationship means things like empathy, validation, listening - simply being WITH people. Which is hardest when that involves pain. And it's hardest when we can't fix it.

As we stand on the verge of a new year, it's only fitting to ask "Where have we been?", and maybe more importantly, "Where are we going?". Whatever the answers, the uncomfortable truth remains: we will have to change.

Our distractions are legion. We are constantly bombarded with a myriad of media that vies for our attention. News, popular culture, family, work - they all have their time and place. But where does God fit into our modern lives? Where and when do we take a stand to choose to be focused - and to love?

In this final sermon of 2014, we go to Mount Nebo. From this mountain Moses saw the Promised Land and this would be the last sight he would see. Moses died and the conquest of the land would commence. While it is beneficial to look back and remember, that cannot overshadow that God is moving us forward into new lands and new territories. Key Text: Deuteronomy 34

Will our church put on even footing the command to love God and the command to love one another? It starts right here in the body as Paul encouraged the church to always do good, especially to those in the family of God. Key Passage(s): Galatians 6:1-10

5 So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him...
11 Then Peter came to himself and said, "Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating."
