Raising the Bar of Thanksgiving

November 19, 2017

November 19, 2017 • Pastor Dave Dick • James 1:1-2

This Sunday we will focus on the importance of a grateful heart as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. James has much to say to this young church regarding authentic faith, but woven into his words is the importance of a heart of gratitude. Just as he does in every area of Christian living, James raises the bar of thanksgiving. Be sure and join us on Wednesday evening for our Thanksgiving Eve service beginning at 7:00pm, as we gives thanks together as the church and celebrate Holy Communion focusing our thanksgiving on Jesus. This is always a special evening so please plan to join us on Thanksgiving Eve.

Mission Minded

January 20, 2019 • January 20, 2019 • Pastor Dave Dick

Being on mission with the Gospel means working together to accomplish God’s will. It often means sacrificing our personal wants and desires in order to realize the intended mission outcome of sharing the Gospel. This week Paul challenges each of us as the church, reminding us that like Paul, we were made for more.

A Balancing Act

January 13, 2019 • January 13, 2019 • Pastor Dave Dick

God’s word commands us to love one another and this week Paul challenges us to consider how that love is to be lived out. Utilizing a controversial issue of his time, eating the meat of sacrificed idols, Paul brings to mind the many gray areas that we face today. Are we willing to put our freedoms aside in order to extend God’s grace to those around us?

On Call

January 6, 2019 • January 6, 2019 • Pastor Dave Dick

Happy New Year! This week we move back into our series “Made for More” a study in the book of 1 Corinthians. As we rejoin the apostle Paul, in the chapter he tackles some questions that many continue to ask today. What do I do with my life? Is there more than this? What career should I pursue? Am I where God wants me? Join us Sunday as we kick off the new year together on mission with the Gospel.
