Good morning,It was a great pleasure to be able to step in for Pastor Matt on Sunday as he and Michele spent time away together. Especially because I was able to share a little bit about one of my favorite people, my granddaughter, Kara. At the age of two, she is such a sponge! She loves to mimic her mom and dad. No one had to teach her to do that. She innately began to copy their behaviors. We al...  Read More

Happy Thursday Crossroads!Most people love a good mystery - whether it is a true crime who did it, a medical mystery, or even a well done magic trick. In Ephesians 3, Paul shares with us the best mystery of all time from the Creator of all things. Isn't that amazing? You can know what God's plan and purpose is for your life. This plan was carried out through Jesus. There are four teaching points r...  Read More

Happy Thursday Crossroads!I love the beginning of Chapter 2 in Ephesians - Paul reminds Christians (those who believe in Jesus) where they were before they were united with Jesus. Every human starts with the same problem - sin. And sin separates us from God. There is no middle ground, we either follow the desires of our sinful nature and obey the devil or pursue Jesus and surrender to His will for...  Read More

Happy Thursday Church,I am so excited to walk through another book of the Bible with you. Ephesians was written by the Apostle Paul to the Christians in Ephesus. There are amazing statements of what God has done in the first chapter and what our response to God ought to be. In verses four and five we see that God loves us, He chose us in Christ to be holy, and He adopts us into his own family. God...  Read More

Happy Thursday Church,This week we looked at Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-42. Before you judge Mary or Martha, try to take in what is happening - Jesus was at Martha's home, along with several other guests. It seems totally reasonable for Martha to be working - to be a good host. So why does Jesus point out that Mary is doing what is necessary? And what is necessary? Jesus answers that question -...  Read More

Good Morning Church,Are you feeling comfort or conviction as we work through this series on being Different? I pray it is both because Jesus loves you too much to leave you as He found you. Take comfort because if you are a follower of Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit within. But don't be surprised if you have felt conviction because that is also the Holy Spirit working to reveal sin. Sunday, we sa...  Read More

Sunday, we had several individuals put pen to paper and declare the...  Read More

Happy Thursday!The series "Different" is based on the verse from 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, this person is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”So what's different? In Christ you are different. Not because of your knowledge, discipline, devotion, or obedience but because God now lives within you. Sunday, we looked specifically at how...  Read More

Good Morning,We are glad so many joined us in person and online to celebrate our Resurrected Lord on Easter morning. Matthew records in chapter 28, verse 5 and 6, "Then the angel spoke to the women, "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen." You can put your faith in Jesus - He is trustw...  Read More
