God Cares About Everything

” When they arrived at the Jordan, they began cutting down trees. But as one of them was cutting a tree, his ax head fell into the river. Oh sir! he cried, it was a borrowed ax. Where did it fall? the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. Then the ax head floated to the surface.” 2 Kings 6:4-6 In 1981, I received…

For Last to First

“Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else” Mark 9:35 Jesus is looking for true servants; people whose main purpose in life is to serve. People who will give up first place to come in last. People who will serve others no matter the cost. Like Jesus, we live only to serve and do whatever the Father asks. This seems radical, especially in the world we live in, but this is our…

You Asked For It message series begins June 5th

  At the end of last year we did a survey where we asked you what topics you would like for us to teach on during our Sunday morning worship times. The results of that survey contained seven pages of ideas. I have used those survey results as a resource in my message planning throughout the year. This summer all of the topics that we are going to teach on will come from the survey. Here are the first three:…

This Week in Kids’ Worship

This week we continued to learn about Contentment – deciding to be happy with what God has given us, and our focus was on Focus. We learned about Jesus’ parable of the Rich Fool who thought that because his fields had produced more grain than he could use in a lifetime that he should build bigger barns to hoard all he had and live a life of leisure. But Jesus taught that we are to be generous with what God…

Viral (A student sermon series)

Hey Parents! Yesterday we started a brand new sermon series in our student service called “Viral”. In this series we are talking about some habits in our life that we want to go viral. Yesterday we started off by talking about being more generous and that being greedy stops us from being generous.   Below are the questions you can ask your student(s) about: Name something that’s gone viral recently. Why do you think it spread quickly? If someone asked…

This Week in Kidventure

This week in Elementary and Preteen Worship we started a new month and a new Life App. For the month of May we are going to learning about Contentment – Deciding to be Happy with what you’ve got. We looked at the Apostle Paul and how he had learned the secret to being content, no matter what. Whether he was in prison or free, whether he was hungry or well fed, Paul learned he could be content when he focused…

A Couple of Compassion Ideas

Hopefully compassion is on our hearts and minds right now after taking the previous three Sundays during our worship to learn how compassion is central to God’s character and to the mission Christ has given to us. The Holy Spirit is working in lots of wonderful ways through all of the acts of compassion that are occurring during our 12 On The Move projects. We will be celebrating all of this good news the first two Sundays of May. In…

Snap That Week 3 (Student ministry sermon series)

We have come to the end of the series called “Snap That”. This is a series that we really enjoyed, not only the people who got to speak but also for the students that got the chance to hear it and get challenged by it.   The last week focused on the fact that our sin changes our relationship with God. Lori, our one of the pastors on staff, spoke about how God is always the same. He has never…

Snap That Week 2 (Student Ministry Sermon Series)

We would encourage you to read that story, it takes about 9 mins to read it.   Here are some questions that you can ask your student to continue the conversation about this weeks sermon:   Have you…
