Confirmation is more than a decision, it is the beginning of a conversation about what it means to be a Christian, living out your faith, your commitment, and God’s call. Come and learn what it means to be a part of the church and live a life in service to God and others with Pastor Allan, Pastor Gary and Kyle Bender.
You can pre-register for the class by calling the church office or registering below.
 
 
 
 

A Different Perspective

A Different Perspective

     If I were to take a survey and they asked me “What is your favorite season in the church” I would answer without hesitation the Easter season. Between the spring weather, the absolutely fantastic worship songs, and the overall theme of victory what isn’t there to love?

     From a Christian standpoint, Easter is the most important moment for our faith. I know Christmas is well loved (and for good reason) but Easter is what affirmed Jesus’ standing, it proved everything Christ said about himself to be true. Even beyond that, it served as the ultimate sacrifice to cover the sins of the world; enabling us to have a relationship with our creator, to cast of the shackles of sin and death. Sure, maybe you have heard all of this stuff hundreds of times in your life so that it maybe doesn’t have the same impact that it once had.

     When you start to feel that way, maybe it’s time to look at Easter from a different angle. In “The Dead Poets’ Society” Robin Williams’ character encourages his students to climb on his desk while reading a line of poetry to see the world in a new way. We can do this in our faith too, we can take a scripture that we have heard often and read as though we are looking from the perspective of someone else. For example, this year, I wanted to understand what Easter meant for the disciples, all Jesus’ followers.

Wrestling With God

Be Prepared

     “Be prepared” rarely has a positive connotation to it. It ranges from being spoken by a teacher to a classroom full of students warning them of an impending exam (half of whom still won’t study), to the villainous chorus sang by the evil lion to his army of hyena about to wage war. Either way it brings worry into the hearts of those who hear it.

      “Be prepared” doesn’t have to bring worry, in fact, it shouldn’t bring worry because what it does is allow us to understand what is coming. If you take the time to study, that exam won’t seem as perilous. You understand the material and will end up with a good grade. Even though Scar’s plan was successful in making him king, you understand Simba is going to come back with a vengeance (as well as a warthog and meerkat).  If you heed the advice and take the time to take the steps necessary, you are going to be ready for what is ahead.
