A Song for the Reformation

This month we'll be singing a new song with a beautiful text by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester, called, Reformation Song. As its title suggests, this song was written to help the church reflect on and rejoice in the glorious gospel that was recovered now 500 years ago in the Protestant Reformation....Keep Reading

A Very Short, Always Needed Prayer

On August 27 we began a new series through Paul's letter to the Colossians, Fullness in Christ. At the head of this letter, Paul offers a familair greeting, which is a kind of short prayer: "To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father" (1:2). This is more than a well-wish, but a prayer for the full experience of the grace and the peace of Christ in the life of this church and in ours....Keep Reading

Are You Lukewarm?

To the church at Laodicea, Jesus said, "because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth" (3:16). Would Jesus say to that to us? Would Jesus say that about you?

Four Passages for Gospel Passageways

Jesus wants to give you an open door. In Sunday's sermon we looked at Revelation 3:7–13 where Jesus says to the church at Philadelphia, "Behold, I have set before you an open door" (Rev. 3:8). As we naturally ask about so many lines in the book of Revelation, what does that even mean? A door to where? Jesus is talking about an open door for the gospel in thier city. A great opportunity for a small church. ...Keep Reading

What Excites Us the Most?

I decided to start a blog for our church family. Then I decided I'd wait for a bit, and start it later. Then I came across a quote for Sunday's sermon and I had no choice but to start a blog. So, here it is. This Sunday we were in Revelation 3:1–7, part of our series, The Seven: Jesus' Words to the Churches in Revelation. Here, Jesus writes to a church that is on its death bed. How does a once-thriving church get there?...Keep Reading
