A Family Tree: A Royally Broken Tree

This is a season of family. Family parties. Family Christmas get togethers. Family name draws. Family present exchanges. We sometimes double, even triple dip on the family parties we go to in one day this time of year. What if I told you that Jesus also had a family? Jesus also had parents and grandparents and great-grandparents that he undoubtedly spent time with during the festivals of his day. So for as much time as we spend with our own families, we are going to take a closer look at the lineage of Jesus. Jesus’ family tree. The people who come from his royal earthly bloodline. Join us on Sunday at 9:30am as we explore Jesus' royally broken family tree.

The Well Of Wisdom: Christ The King Sunday

The Church worldwide dubbed this Sunday as "Christ the King Sunday." We are reminded to take a panoramic view of God. A large view of God. A big view of God. Christ the King Sunday calls us to consider the cosmic nature of our God Who is, as the Apostle Paul reminded us, “above all, and through all and in all.” Unfortunately, my guess is that the vast majority of our time is spent on the personal relationship with Jesus. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we celebrate Christ, the King.

The Well Of Wisdom: 53 Pairs

The central point for the wisdom found in simplicity is simply to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness first. When we set our internal and external gaze on the kingdom of God and His righteousness then all the other things in life become secondary. We’re not as easily enticed by the seductions of consumerism. We’re as easily tempted by the whispers of materialism. We’re not as easily led by the lies of a culture that says if you want it, you should have it and more is always better. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am and we learn together of the Proverb's plea for the wisdom of simplicity.

The Well Of Wisdom: The Wisdom of Ants

"Go to the ant, you lazybones; consider its ways, and be wise." A saying of wisdom. It actually is Proverbs Chapter 6 verse 6. And it’s a way to introduce another theme of wisdom which is diligence. Throughout the book of Proverbs, the author commends those who work hard, who are diligent, who are not lazy. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we dwell with the wisdom of ants!

The Well Of Wisdom: The Wisdom of Temperance

"A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." So says the author of the book of Proverbs. What the proverb is stressing is temperance. We don’t use this word a lot and we really don’t live into this word a lot either. Temperance means showing restraint, self-control. Join us on Reformation Sunday at 9:30am as we dwell with the wisdom of temperance.
