Is it the Good News?
Sunday we looked at Toxic Religion. Galatians 1:6-7 states, "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ." We learned that the word pervert in the Greek means to corrupt
How's Your Relationships?
Sunday we continued with our series on the things that are toxic in our life. Things that sometimes we think we are okay but end up bringing poison into our life and affecting our relationship with God and with others. We looked at relationships on Sunday. 1 Corinthians 15:33, reminds us, “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” If
How's Your Thoughts?
Last Sunday we began our series on the toxic things that we allow into our life that end up doing us more damage than we would like. Sunday we looked at our thought life. How many times do we allow the past thoughts to influence who we are today? The lies and discouraging things that have affected our life today, when God, through the power of His Holy Spirit has c
What an awesome Faith Promise Weekend! If you missed this past weekend we had the privilege of having Rev. Dwight and Carolyn Rich with us. They have served the Church of the Nazarene for over 34 years and are retiring as the Field Strategy Coordinator for the South American, North Andean Field that comprises of the countries Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. They shared with us about the work that
So great for the last three weeks to review our Vision, Mission and Purpose. The results of God's work in His church has been truly amazing and again want to thank each of you for being obedient to God's call to be a partner in His unstoppable movement here in Mitchell. I said it Sunday but I am truly blessed to be called your pastor. God has so much in store for us this new church year and I can not wait to see all that He is going to do
If you choose to accept it is: to establish a strong rooted relationship with Christ and with Others.
Sunday we focused in on our mission as God's Church to Mitchell and the surrounding communities. We know that under His leadership that this vision and mission can be unstoppable. We have seen it in action this past year. We have a mission for our church where: 1
Sunday we wrapped our series, Happily, Ever After Marriage? with looking at what do we do after we have walked through the Valley of Acher (Trouble), and stepped through the door of Hope. What is next? We looked together that Love and Forgiveness is the answer. It is so easy to just close off and pull back when we are going through the valley. But God calls us not to retreat but to begin living, to begin loving again lik
Sunday we began looking at our marriages and relationships. We learned that when we think that just getting married will solve all of our problems, it ends up actually causing more damage to us. Jacob learned that because he was so fixated on Rachel that he compromised way more than he should have. In Genesis, 19:18, "Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, "I'll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Ra
This whole series comes down to this for us. Are we truly connected to Him? Do we believe that Jesus is who He says He is. If we do then we will want to stay connected to Him. He reminds us that yes, we can do things on our own and in our own power but all that is fruitless. The fruit that lasts is that fruit that comes from being connected to the One True Vine, Jesus. I hope this week you have had a chance to look at your ow
