Everything Starts with a Firm Foundation

The smallest things often make the biggest difference: a shifting foundation can bring down a house, a small spark can ignite a huge fire, a single act of kindness can change a life, or a single word can change someone’s eternity. We place a lot of emphasis on the big things, but they all start with little steps. Today we’re looking at Jesus’s first recorded action in the gospels and the foundation everything else is built on. Preaching: Pastor Matt…

The Greatest Gift: Love

As we enter the Christmas season there is so much to do. Gifts to buy, meals to prepare, gifts to wrap, travel to prepare for, and so much more that dominates our time and drives the season for most of us. But God has called us to a different rhythm during this advent season. Advent means the arrival of a notable person or thing- and nothing is more remarkable than the arrival of Jesus into humanity! This advent season let’s…

The Greatest Gift: Joy

He Never Failed Me, Yet

Sunday Worship November 25, 2018 Are you truly aware of God’s faithfulness? Have you ever thought about how often you’ve failed God? Take a trip through the 106th Psalm and Israel’s many failures and see the unending, never failing, always & forever faithful love of God in the midst of it. Join Pastor Matt as we walk through the text and God’s amazing faithfulness live from his living room as blizzard conditions caused us to cancel services. Preacher: Matt Schaffner…

The Gift Leads to Our Giving

Sunday Worship November 18, 2018 Do you get stuck thinking something is “yours?” Have you ever taken a moment to think about the fact that everything is God’s and then He gives it to you? The familiar text of the Lord’s Prayer has a lot to teach us about gratitude and where our hearts operate from. Take a look at the familiar words of Matthew 6 and the “Our Father” with us this morning as we realize that the gift…

It’s About the Giver, not the Gift

Sunday Worship November 11, 2018 God is ever and always concerned with our hearts. Whether we’re giving thousands of dollars or a few cents, it’s not about the size or portion of the gift! Jesus pointed it out most clearly in Luke 21 as He “conveniently” looked up in time to see a widow drop less than $.02 in as an offering. What does Jesus say about our hearts and why we give? What does it say about us if…

It Starts with the Heart

Sunday Worship November 4, 2018 We take SO much for granted- things we’ve seen happen so often we no longer think of them as the little miracles they really are. But, if we stopped to give thanks where it was due, what would our hearts & lives look like? Join us as we take some time out to give thanks where thanks is due and cultivate an attitude of gratitude! Preacher: Matt Schaffner Scripture: 1 Timothy 6.6-11 (NLT) Bible app…

October 21, 2018: Grace is Always True

Grace is foundational to our faith, yet one of the hardest things to wrap our heads around. It’s free, but costly. It’s the only path to life, but means dying. It’s for those who aren’t perfect and those who think they are. It’s extended to everyone, but only accepted by a few. It’s amazing and the best news ever, but we make it messy. Join us as we take a deep dive into God’s grace and the mess we make…

September 23, 2018: Connect to God’s Church

Have you ever created a connect the dots masterpiece? It may have been a while, but you probably remember the process. You’d follow the dots and connect them in order and the picture would begin to emerge from that jumbled heap of numbered dots. Faith is similar- there is a sequence of events that helps us become more like Jesus and place His glory on display for all to see. Do you know what that looks like? Would you like…
