Eternity in Our Hearts

Darrell reflects on how we as humans seem to be instinctively aware that there is a God who is in ultimate control. There is something inside each of us that is radically connected to God, because we were made in His image and are drawn to experience this connection. In this context, when we encounter Jesus and declare Him as Lord, we move outside of our self centered existence and discover “eternity in our hearts.”

Growing Together in Unity

As a  community of faith, we firmly believe that we cannot go where God has called us without increasing unity in every area of our lives together.  With our focus on growth in 2017, we are particularly exhorted to seek unity in the areas of growth we’ve been developing, so that we can grow together in our expression of authentic community. As God continues His work in us, there is only one way forward and that is— together.

Inbreaking: Joy

In Luke 2, an angel of the Lord declares to the shepherds, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people.”  How do we find this joy? Darrell’s message underscores that it is in Christ alone and His presence.  The call to each of us is to “taste and see that the Lord is good!"

Colossians 3:13

We believe in the whole body and the importance of relationships within each church community.  Within our own church family, relationships grow deep and fruitful as we encourage transparency, and it is here that we find the gift of friendship.  In this context, Darrell shares a message on Colossians 3:13 and the admonition to “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you."
