Beatitudes Week 6

Tuesday night, we conclude our study of the Beatitudes, focusing on Matthew 5:10-12. It is an evening discussing persecution and why Jesus tells us we will face persecution if we follow him. What does that mean for our lives? How does the knowledge that Christians will face persecution help us face the difficulties of life? Watch what happened on January 12, 2021, at 8 p.m. All are welcome.

New Live Stream Equipment, Meet the Mic


 I hope you are all having a blessed week. When we started 2020, my wife and I had no idea we'd be learning the ins and outs of producing and delivering a live-stream worship service. The faithful old computer we were working with couldn't handle the strain (it wasn't designed for the job) and we had to pick up a new model that could. Then we received an external camera to improve the visuals. Now we have a new external mic to improve our clarity, especially for those with hearing issues. Who knows where the rest of 2020 will take us. We fervently hope this will help make your worship experience more meaningful. Peace, Pastor Jeff

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Malachi Week 2





We nearly finished the last of our three minor prophets tonight, the
prophet Malachi. He lived when the Temple in Jerusalem was rebuilt.
During the rebuilding phase, all sorts of ideas developed about how
wonderful life would be once the Temple was back in operation and how
much humans would change as well. It didn't happen that way and Malachi
helps his people deal with that, change their expectations, and calls
them to work for the change they want. Looks like we'll have one more
week and then we'll take a summer vacation and return in the fall. Join
us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Haggai Week 2


We were well on our way to finishing with the minor prophet Haggai when
this live stream began. We picked up with Chapter 2, verses 10-19 of
this two chapter book. From there we moved on to Malachi and how that prophet dealt with people's disappointment when the rebuilding of the Temple does not live up to expectations. Join us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Haggai Week 1

Finishing Micah last week, we are now moving on to the minor prophet Haggai, writing at the time the Temple is being rebuilt. Haggai reflects on what this means and what the people of Israel hope for the future. It's similar to our hopes for the future as we are coming through a time of potentially great change given both the pandemic and the civil rights issues joined today. Join us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

A short message concerning what we can do together to assist our African

American brothers and sisters to push back against the sin of racism so

deeply baked into our society. It's a message of encouragement for

everyone and a call to action.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Micah Week 2






After last week's introduction to the Old Testament prophets and how

hope. It will be a wild ride. You are invited.

Bible Study: Micah, Week 1



This week we begin our exploration of the Old Testament Prophets with
the minor prophet Micah. We begin with a review of the history of the
prophets and where Micah comes in the long line of prophets that spans
1000+ years of the history of Israel. The job changed over the centuries as
the fortunes of the Israelite's changed. What does any of that have
to do with us. Come and see.
