As a member of the body of Christ, every Christian has a part to play. God has uniquely gifted everyone of you. He desires you to use those gifts in meaningful service in His church, in His Kingdom. I Corinthians 12:27 says, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” Our talents and gifts vary, and we are most effective doing what we’re good at — what God has blessed us with. Many of us already have a feel for what our gifts are. We merely need to know where our gifts are needed. Others of us want to make sure we are serving where God would have us, and are looking for ways to confirm what our spiritual gifts are. Throughout this series we will take a closer look at how you can utilize your gifts to help advance God’s purposes in this world.

Each one of us has a good work to do. We may not see it yet, but it’s often right there in front of our eyes. For Nehemiah, it was a crumbled wall. For you, it could be an injustice in the world, or a need you see what no one else does. During this series, we will learn how Nehemiah responded to his own calling and learn how we can change our own world just by leaning into the unique calling that God has put in front of each of us.

How do you see yourself? A masterpiece or a mess? Survivor or struggler? Advocate or critic? It’s an important question that many of us probably get wrong, or at least under state. Getting the right perspective on how God sees you might give you a new view of yourself.
Join us in September for this new series and let’s grab hold of who God says we are.
God is searching for you-and won’t give up until you’ve been found.
That’s the central message at the heart of this four-week sermon series. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we sometimes run away from God. We hide behind our excuses and our sins. We create distance in that relationship.
Yet God doesn’t give up. God passionately pursues us, seeking a restored and whole relationship with us.
Join us each Sunday, starting April 28th, for another aspect of God’s pursuit of you and me.
During the month of January 2019, we will be involved in a series entitled “Misquoted.” During this month-long sermon series we will investigate four popular sayings that are often attributed to the Bible. The only problem is, you won’t find them in there!
The words we speak say a lot about who we are. So it’s frustrating when someone takes our words and twists them, because it leads people to believe things about us that aren’t true. Likewise, when God is misquoted, it causes people to believe God is someone He is not.
This series challenges us all to draw near to God, because the closer we are to someone, the more likely we will know their voice.

Exile can be a frightening prospect.Like the Israelites in Babylon, Christians today may feel they are in unfamiliar territory, surrounded by a culture with customs and practices foreign to their faith. In these times of dislocation and powerlessness, God wants to help his people experience anew the possibilities of covenantal faithfulness. In Embracing Exile, T. Scott Daniels invites the church to embrace this modern time of ’exile’ and to seize this unique opportunity to be a blessing to the culture around us.
Join us during June and July for this series called “Embracing Exile”. Pastor Troy Teeter will be leading us through this series and further discussion on Wednesday evenings. You can purchase the book for further study and thought for $7 through the church office, or on the Amazon Kindle ($9.99).
