Episode 9: Why is Pastor Dave not a CEO?
November 7, 2018
Why does Pastor Dave say that he is not the CEO of the church? Is the word gospel-centered a buzzword or does it have a purpose in the church's mission? Dave, David, and Ben sit down with a bag of left-over Halloween candy in this episode to talk it out. Question answered: We used to have a time after service that we could meet with someone in the small room by the stage if we needed prayer. Why was this discontinued? Sunday service can bring a lot of intense emotions to the surface when you are struggling with an issue. It can be really helpful to talk with someone on Sunday instead of waiting until you can arrange a time to meet with a pastor during the week.
Episode 7: Why Join A Community Group?
October 24, 2018
Community Groups are the backbone of our church – the primary place where you will be guided closer in your walk with Jesus Christ. Made up of men and women from all walks of life, CGs gather throughout the week to know and love one another, study along with the Living Water sermon series, and pray for one another (Acts 2:42). Community Groups are much more than a weekly event; it’s a group of people to do life with, powered by the grace of God.
