This Week’s Sermon: Godliness at Work

Our final Psalm this summer is the 112th, and I really love it. It is a Psalm that helpfully outlines one’s walk with God. What do you do? How should you feel? What motivates you? What are the benefits? To walk with God is righteousness. And there is nothing better. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s leading this Sunday.

Back to 10am Services

We return to our normal service time of 10am this week. See you then!

Discipleship Teaching of the Week: Responding Well to Those in Grief

I listened to a remarkable interview this past week with Kay Warren, wife of Rick Warren (author of The Purpose Driven Life). I hope you will listen to the whole thing to get a better grasp on “mental illness, loss, and the way that Kay processed the grief of losing her son, Matthew, to suicide.” But especially, I want you to take notice as Kay discusses the best ways to respond to those in grief. This is not so easy to learn or do, but as Christians, we should be the leaders in this area.
