25 Year Celebration

In September of 1994 we had our first worship service to begin forming this church community. This Sunday we are celebrating 25 years of working to share the living waters of truth that flow from the opened Word. We hope you can join us for worship and the celebration beginning at 10:30 a.m. 
“Let anyone who thirsts come. Let anyone who desires take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17

Healing, Part 3: Humility Heals

When we have tried and tried to change and be healed of the things that take away our happiness and peace of mind with no lasting effect, perhaps it is time to try something different.

This Sunday we will continue our series on healing and look at a story from the Word that helps us to see what it really means to humbly go the Lord and let the Truth’s healing power have its impact.

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Healing, Pt. 2: The Healing Power of Truth

There are several stories in the Bible about people being healed by immersing or washing themselves in water. Jesus said that everything He taught was a parable or allegorical story designed to teach a lesson. In these parables water is most often a symbol for truth.

What is the relationship between truth and healing? Does the truth have the ability to somehow bring about health and healing? Is there power in the truth?

We will talk more about that on Sunday. We hope you can join us for worship at 10:30 a.m.

Healing, Part 1: When We Are Stuck

There are a variety of stories about healing in the Bible. Each one tells us something different about what we can do to be healed of things that control or bind us or that keep us from experience the fulfillment and happiness that God created us to experience.

This week we will look at how we can begin to be set from from the bonds of hurtful habits or addictions that control us and keep us from joy and peace.

Join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Encourage One Another

Stories in the Bible are given because they illustrate what we go through in our lives. They describe situations we find ourselves in, how we might react in unhealthy ways, and show us how we can make better decisions going forward.

There is a story about the Children of Israel, having left slavery in Egypt and arriving at the Promised Land of Canaan, being faced with a decision about whether to go into this land that flows with milk and honey that was promised to them or to turn away.

To assess the possibility of going in and taking the land for themselves they send in twelve spies to do some investigation. When the spies return Caleb and Joshua say, as their God promised them, that they can go ahead and acquire the land. There are ten other spies that give a different story. They say it can’t be done because of the walled cities and giants living in the land.

When we are faced with decisions what voices do we listen to and believe? Do we react from fear or do we gather our courage and go forward, trusting that we will be cared for?

It is clear that it is difficult to always stay positive and trust that the way forward will be good, safe and fruitful. We can, however, strengthen each other by offering more positive support. Can we offer words of encouragement? Can we support the best we see in each other rather than picking on weaknesses we may see?

This week the challenge is to find ways to encourage one another – to look for the good we see and make mention of it.

We hope to see you this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Born Again. Really? How Does That Work?

In the Gospel of John there is an interaction between Jesus and a man named Nicodemus about being born again. What does it mean to be born again and how is it’s meaning often misinterpreted? What kinds of changes within ourselves might we realistically expect to experience?
See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Self Forgiveness

Many of us struggle with being able to forgive ourselves for our past mistakes or habits that we have been unable to set down and walk away from, or even from things that happened to us that weren’t our fault.

This week we will talk about what we can do to move on from debilitating shame or excessive guilt and begin to see ourselves the way that God sees us–a beautiful part of this creation. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” [Jeremiah 29:11]

Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. We hope to see you then!

Help For When We Feel Broken

They say everyone is broken in one way or another–that we all have suffered pain or hurt that has left us damaged somehow. One of the things that we can do when we are hurt is to retreat or isolate so that we avoid more pain–building walls to defend ourselves. These walls don’t so much prevent pain from coming in as keep the pain from ever leaving. To find healing we need connection. Connection helps us to experience the love of God and others. Love heals. As we read in Isaiah 61 and as Jesus read in the synagogue in reference to Himself: “Jehovah has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted.”

We hope to see you this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
