How do I open communication with my distant teen?

by Jeff Ware, Student Life Pastor

 

It’s no secret that this pandemic has changed our lives due to some very real and legitimate difficulties. I want to talk you out of seeing these present circumstances as an inconvenience to be eliminated and instead see them as an opportunity to be seized. The reality is that God has given us t...

What is baptism and why should I be baptized?

by Thad Williams, Missions and Community Engagement Pastor

In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” But what exactly is baptism, and why should we baptize?

The Resurrection, Reasonable or Irrational?

by Dr. Rusty Sieck, Executive Pastor of Ministries 

We live in a world that tests the premise and the reliability of everything. We are taught to be suspicious by nature. Just listen to the debates that rage on flat earth theory or that the moon landing was a highly evolved conspiracy by the United States government. It doesn't matter what the topic of discussion, some will debate its reliability. One of t...

Parenting Is More Than Changing Behavior

by Children's Pastor Mike Harvey

I think we have all been there. Your kids are playing together, and then one of them lets out a blood-curdling scream. You run over to investigate and learn that Johnny hit Sally — all over a toy he wanted to play with. After making sure everyone is unharmed, your mind shifts to changing behavior and how to discipline your kids.

Often, ...

On Jogging and Donuts

by Dr. David Sylvester

 Before we were married, I thought I was buff and healthy. Apparently not.

 I often had pizza for breakfast - and why not? It was good.  Dinner was a choice between KFC and Dairy Queen; it was a small town, really small. Our quarterback was also head cheerleader which wa...

A Big, Big House by Dr. David Sylvester

A few years ago, my wife Daneta and I decided to make the trek from Dallas to the luscious wooded areas near Asheville, NC to take in the sights and sounds of the famed Biltmore Estate. I booked the flights months in advance and did so with a real sense of accomplishment for which any good husband would brag a little.

Or so I thought.

As we app...

The Great Commission

This week, we started a new series entitled Come to the Table and heard about having fellowship with Jesus. We come to the table and enter into this relationship through receiving the invitation of the gospel. This invitation is not only for us but for the world (John 3:16). As followers of Christ who already have fellowship with Jesus, we have been called to invite others to the table.

With the ...

Freedom

Our kids are growing up in a world where freedom is understood to be the ability to choose to do whatever you want, whenever you want, based on how you feel at any given moment in time. But is that really freedom? Parents, I encourage you to take to heart these words from Pastor Tim Keller’s book, The Reason for God, and teach them to your children so that they come to a true understanding of freedom:  

Keller writes, “Freedom i...

Valentine's Day

Since Valentine’s Day is this weekend, I thought I would talk a little about building strong marriages. The first step is to understand that there is no one way to grow and improve our marriages. We can turn to many resources, but the most important thing to remember is the desire to love one another in and through all things. Secondly, it takes a daily commitment to listen and hear how we can better support, love, and encourage one another.

Who Am I?

by: Richelle Torres

02/03/2021

"Who am I?" is a question that many kids are being challenged to answer. To answer this question, we must first ask, "Who does God say I am?"

We live in a world where we put value in how many “likes” we have, and we place our worth in other people’s view of us. That can waver from day to day, but God’s view of us remains constant. Kids need to see themselves the way God does: as His beloved children. Our worth is not bas...
