This week’s sermon is available here. This week, Pastor Jordan led us through Joel 2:12-17 as we looked at what it means to be wanderers who return to God. I really appreciated this sermon — it convicted me about where I’ve wandered and become apathetic. I appreciated the reminder that my salvation doesn’t mean that I no longer have a need to repent and come back to the Lord. In fact, my… Read More

You can watch Pastor Dan’s sermon right here. We were so blessed this week to be able to celebrate baptisms together! I love getting to watch people step forward and publicly declare their faith in Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. What a great moment to rejoice with our brothers and sisters! I appreciated Pastor Dan’s clear presentation of the gospel (good news) about Jesus! Those baptizees recognized that Jesus is the… Read More

You can watch this week’s sermon right here. This week we explored the story of the Bible — from beginning to end! We took some time to remember and talk through all that God has done — the way He has provided for our salvation, and the faithfulness He has to His promises. There’s so much we didn’t get to cover in talking through God’s story, so I just want to recommend… Read More

In fact, Paul talks about this in 1 Corinthians 1 — what seems like foolishness to the world is exactly what God used to bring… Read More

Pastor Shawn’s sermon “Free to Choose” in the two-part series New Identity is available to watch or listen to here. Pastor Shawn continued in Romans on Sunday, inviting us to look at the mystery of our new identities in Christ. The piece that stuck out to me in the sermon this week was maybe a bit discouraging. Pastor Shawn reminded us that we will never spiritually mature beyond temptations. We will always… Read More

On Sunday Pastor Shawn started a two-part series on New Identity. You can listen to it or watch it here. We spent some time looking at the book of Romans, written by the Apostle Paul, and what it says about sin. Oh, sin. That word we don’t like. That thing that trips us up over and over. Pastor Shawn pointed out that we act sinfully — we make poor choices that reject… Read More

by Denise Snyder I wrote this post on my personal blog about three years ago. It was during a time when it just hit me about how broken and disruptive sin makes us. I was discouraged as I started the post, but as I continued to look up Scripture — verse by verse — I was reminded that God redeems. God restores. God’s plan wins in the end! So, I hope this… Read More
