On the Saturday before Easter, we as a fellowship have participated in praying together, even if we’re apart, for many years now.

Job 3 – The Breaking Point

Job really seems like an appropriate study lately, given the global concerns about CONVID-19. We are still weighing out our options about our normal 10 am meeting tomorrow, but we will be broadcasting live on YouTube and Facebook.

The Joyful New

I’m back from vacation! I had a great trip to the Great Northwest – but I’m also glad to be back. This Sunday we’ll be reading Mark 2:18-22. This text is in the midst of a grouping of religious controversies that confront Jesus in his early ministry. Jesus, from the get go, was upending religious […]
