An Obedient Family

The last few months have been challenging for everyone. It’s been encouraging to see God’s family respond creatively to each other’s needs when a lot of the ways we normally do things aren’t available. Praise God for how He’s been helping us! Our passage this week (1 John 2:1-6) assures…

An Honest Family

Boy: Daddy, I want to marry. Dad: Ok. First, say sorry. Boy: For what? Dad: Just say sorry. Boy: But for what? What have I done? At least tell me the reason Dad: It doesn’t matter. Just say sorry. Boy: OK. I am sorry. Dad: Good. When you learn to…

True Fellowship

We’re beginning our series on Living in God’s Family today, as we dig into 1 John, a letter written by one of Jesus’ closest friends about 50 years after Jesus died and rose from the dead. It’s a great letter because it gives us the reflections of one of the…

Align – God’s Heart > Our Mission

It’s GMC week, and what a great time to take stock of our passion to see the unreached reached. When we consider the life and ministry of Jesus, it challenges our view of the world and its peoples. When Jesus reached out to Zaccheaus (someone considered a great sinner and…

Empty

This is probably not the type of Easter you were expecting. You may have been expecting to go away over the Easter break for a relaxing holiday by the sea. You may have been expecting to be catching up with friends and family around mountains of food and festivities. Instead,…

Gospel impact in the Home

I hope you’ve all been able to adjust to the new COVID-19 environment. It has affected all communities around the world like nothing else ever has. What is God doing? This is a question many are asking. I don’t have the answer, but I do know how He wants us…

Caring for others in a Pandemic

It’s a cliché that we’re in uncharted waters, but it’s true. But we know Who’s steering the ship, and there are no safer and more loving hands. It’s a great comfort to know that God is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1). How can we care well for others at…

Welcome!

Welcome to our spiritual home! It’s the one we have here on earth, so it’s a bit temporary – we’re headed to our permanent home in the perfect new creation with Jesus. There are a few imperfections in this one – we’re still working on it (and God is still…
