Making All Things New

The word “new” is one of God’s favorite ways of describing His work in the world. NEW commandment (John 13:34) NEW covenant (Luke 22:20). NEW creation (2 Corinthians 15:17). NEW heavens and a NEW earth (Isaiah 65:17). NEW spirit (Ezekiel 11:19). NEW song (Isaiah 42:10). He is the God who is “making all things new.” […]

How Did I Get Here

Listen in as we hear what the Lord has laid upon the heart of one of our Deacons, Tim Tarr.

What comes to mind when you think about Father’s Day? Is it power tools and BBQs? New ties and #1 Dad Shirts? My family recently vacationed in Florida and spent a few days at Universal Studios. Just about every souvenir shop we entered had displays of fake Oscar awards. These awards display a man, standing […]

According to church history, Valentine was a Christian priest, or possibly a Bishop, living in Rome who was martyred on February 14th in 269 AD during the reign of Claudius II for the crime of marrying Christian couples against the orders of Caesar. In time, he would be […]

Things Come to Those Who Wait

There are many crossroads in life that we come to, and New Year’s strikes me as a sort of little crossroads moment where the meandering path of our life, all the days that have come before, brings us to this new day, this new turning of the calendar. At the beginning of a new year […]
