Making disciples

Posted on

Pastor John returns to the topic vital to the life of our church … making disciples. It’s not getting people to come to church with us, or making them follow rules. It is teaching others, by example, to love and obey Jesus. During the service, two members (Angie Visconti and Patti Lloret) share their experiences since beginning to study the principles of The Timothy Initiative. Message delivered 3/10/19.

Healthy boundaries

Posted on

A three-member panel (Pastor John Young, Amy Minnich and Charlie Boyer) share their perspectives on the importance of scripturally based personal boundaries. They touch on three key aspects in particular:

  • We are responsible for setting our boundaries … nobody can do it for us.
  • We have to establish them with the right motives for boundaries to be helpful to ourselves and to others.
  • We have to protect our boundaries (while continuing to love those who won’t respect them).
Amy, Pastor John and Charlie share about boundaries.

Here are Pastor John’s notes for the Boundaries session:
