We believe that the Bible is God's word.
The Bible is one of the primary ways in which God reveals himself to us. We continually open God's word together to understand more fully His gracious love for us.
Bethlehem...the little town placed outside of Jerusalem. Of course we know what it's famous for, but this little town should has something for us today! Christmas is more than being about the birth of Jesus. It's about our lives changing because of that birth!
What would make you see more value in yourself? If you chose God or He chose you? It's an interesting idea to wrestle with during this season of Thanksgiving.
Blessings and curses are choices. This phrase is known to so many but embraces so little. We allow ourselves to curse instead of bless. We choose to be negative instead of build up to make things better. It's the choice between two trees in the garden...life and destruction. Where are you reaching?
We live in a time when reaching back across the divide is just too much work. We're comfortable enough being one of the safe people and God will find someone to reach others. This series brings the emphasis back to the truth that God has called us to build bridges. We are used by Him to reach others who don't know the way across. Let's get to work!
When the world tries to tell you who or what is "everything", it it believable? In our social and political culture, it's easy for our world to forget that "Everything" is not a thing but a person. Not a figure but a deity. Not something that wavers, but is true from and for all time.
Why are incredible things happening around the world in the name of Jesus, but not here at home? Is it possible that we're just not listening to God anymore?
The Humble King
Psalm 91 is a psalm from Moses who encourages us to rest in the shadow of God's love. If we really want to live like Jesus, it begins with a heart that lives in humility. It would take great humility to love a group of people who make mistakes all the time (that's us). Still, God gave us Jesus. Jesus gave us life...regardless of the depths of our sin.
Psalm 91 is a psalm from Moses who encourages us to rest in the shadow of God's love. Those moments we are lonely or tired. Those times when we feel like our worlds are out of control. These are the times we should be dwelling and trusting in Him. Not just a bystander on the outside, but someone who is close to Him. Take some time to camp in Psalm 91 today.
John the Baptist was scandalous not because he dressed like a wild man, but because when he spoke of the Messiah, it stepped on the toes of many people! The Romans & the Jewish Leadership both had a bone to pick with this guy, but that didn't change his message. God was unfolding Jesus right in front of John and just as a baby in the womb of Elizabeth, he couldn't contain himself!
What are the things that break up your peace? Is it possible that we've allowed things to creep into our lives that are actually keeping us from finding peace? It's time to identify them and get back to the promised peace that comes from God!
Soldiers of Jesus
What is your resolve? What is your motivation? A soldier has one motivation...to do what his/her enlisting officer asks. To be a soldier of Jesus can't be any different. So why do we get so confused in the process?
We celebrate the birth of Jesus on december 25th, but is that really where the story begins? the apostle john can't wait to tell us that "in the beginning was the word..."
DO YOU FIND YOURSELF DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER? DO YOU FIND THAT YOU'RE IN A ROUTINE AND EVEN MORE...DO YOU FIND THAT YOU'RE OK WITH IT? YOU MAY BE STUCK AND GOD HAS A PLAN TO GET YOU MOVING.
There is so much more we can be doing with our hands if they aren't carrying rocks. So how do we drop them?
Why were we created and how do we respond?
Series about the wounds that we have and how God wants to use them to make us not just useful, but stronger.
Series out of the book of 1st john reminding us of who god has called us to be.
We set time aside to remember that Jesus was a real man who walked the earth. There were people who lived life with Jesus and were alive when the New Testament was written.
In the heart of Lenawee
We hope to be a light for Christ in every corner of our county.
