Call To Worship

Sunday July 21, 2024 10:00 AM

In this exploration of worship, we delve into the significance of the 'call to worship' and how it shapes our spiritual lives. Drawing from the story of David bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, we see how setting apart time and space for God is crucial. Just as God separated elements in creation and established the Sabbath, we too are called to create boundaries between the ordinary and the holy. This practice trains us to recognize God's presence not only in designated sacred spaces but also in our everyday lives. By intentionally marking the beginning of our worship, we prepare our hearts and minds to encounter the divine, both within and beyond the church walls. This message challenges us to be more deliberate in our approach to worship and to carry that mindset into our daily spiritual practices.

Will Purpose Make Me Happy?

Sunday July 14, 2024 10:00 AM

In this powerful message, we're challenged to reconsider our pursuit of happiness in light of God's greater purpose. The central theme revolves around the story of Lazarus' resurrection, where Jesus deliberately delays his arrival, allowing Lazarus to die before raising him. This seemingly cruel act teaches us a profound lesson: God's plan often transcends our immediate desires for happiness, aiming instead for a deeper, lasting joy and spiritual growth. We're reminded that our purpose, both as individuals and as a church, isn't to seek fleeting happiness but to make Christ known and to help others experience His transformative love. This may require us to set aside our own comfort and desires, just as Jesus did, for the greater good of those around us who are hurting and lost. As we reflect on this, let's consider how we can shift our focus from personal happiness to a more meaningful, purpose-driven life that reflects Christ's love and brings lasting joy to others.

No Time Is Wasted

Sunday July 07, 2024 10:00 AM

In our journey of faith, we often struggle with the feeling of wandering or being lost. This message reminds us that these periods of uncertainty are not wasted time, but opportunities for spiritual growth. The story of the Israelites' 40-year journey through the wilderness serves as a powerful metaphor for our own faith walks. What should have been a short trip became an extended period of learning to rely on God's provision and timing. Like the Israelites with their daily manna, we're challenged to trust God's faithfulness in our daily lives, even when we can't see the path ahead clearly. This time of 'wandering' isn't about reaching the destination quickly, but about developing a deeper reliance on God. We're encouraged to see these moments of uncertainty not as setbacks, but as chances to explore, pray, and grow in our trust in God's provision.

The Power Of Sacred Spaces And Routines In Spiritual Growth

Published: July 24, 2024

Creating sacred spaces and routines can deepen our spiritual lives. Inspired by biblical traditions, setting aside time for devotion, designating a spiritual space, and developing a devotional routine can enhance our awareness of God's presence in both designated holy moments and everyday life.

Need Prayer? No matter what you're facing, we'd love to pray with you!

There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen.
