Together to get there — the conclusion

Posted on

To walk Together to get to the places in life we are called to is a team effort. It happens through unity in the Spirit, Love for each other, the work and fruit of the Holy Spirit helping us to engage each other in a way that reflects Christ, and self sacrifice. Dying to self is a team sport. We don’t take up our cross alone, we do it together encouraging each other through the journey of life for the glory of God. Message delivered 12/3/17.

In all things give thanks

Posted on

This Sunday (11/26) was a ‘feast’ of giving thanks as Pastor Zach and several others shared testimonies of God’s faithfulness to them over the past year. Not only is God deserving of our thanks but “thankfulness keeps us from forgetting about God’s faithfulness, especially while we are waiting for him to act on our behalf. If we choose to be thankful in all circumstances God will give us peace!”

Wrapping up his “Barriers to Relationships” segment of Together to Get There, Pastor John looks at two more mindsets that, on the surface, seem positive, but really are selfish, focused on staying in control of our own lives and dependent on people as pawns in our strategies rather than surrendering to God, who is the only one who truly has the power to create the peace we desire. Message delivered 11/19/17.

What is power?

Posted on

When Christians think about supernatural power, there’s a tendency to view it in terms of mighty works like miraculous healings or raising the dead.  But as Kevin Harvey takes the pulpit, he shares his understanding about what might be a more important kind of power in our lives: power for growth, our character, our Christ-likeness being evident to other people.

Journey together

Posted on

We are all part of each other’s lives in the journey of life. As a result, we get to share in important moments. This Sunday, we participated in an example of that. Jeff Perez and Ady Gúzman have testified how they found themselves drawn in the N3C fellowship by the warmth, genuine love and acceptance from the members of the body. As part of the service, they moved from being a couple to engaged … to married!
