Make this weekend special by taking a few moments out of y...

Dear Friends,It's today.Your Savior, my Savior - our Savior - died. He went to the Cross, so many years ago. It's hard to imagine where our lives would be without Him, what might have become of us had we never been rescued. Yesterday evening at The Last Supper I shared a few principles from Hebrews 10 about the sacrifice of Jesus. I invite you to read that chapter, and to consider it on this special day.It teaches...

Dear Friends,

Our staff team recently discussed some of the goals we have for this particular season of church life.  In the midst of uncertainty, it's easy to switch to "survival" mode and to lose track of the bigger picture.  I was really encouraged by what was shared - and I think you will be too.  So, here are the highlights:

Dear Friends,

Two hundred forty-four years ago, a grand experiment began, frought with risks. A few colonists decided to rewrite their own story, and in doing so, changed everything.  "When in the course of human events..."
