Dealing with Death | By Gene Barron

How relevant is Jesus to our life today? Someone shared with me at worship Sunday that a dear friend of theirs had died. Death is something we all face – normally several times during our life – close friends, parents, siblings, a spouse ... it’s inevitable. When Jesus heard of His friend Lazarus' illness He...

Joy | By Mike McGuire

When you hear the word strength, what is the first thing that you think of? Is it a body builder, crossfit follower, a person dealing with a heavy amount of stress?

Perhaps the top two issues that Corinth became known for are the same two major issues we face in our culture: sexual immorality and extreme materialism. The primary god... Continue Reading →

Good | By Jill Bryant

In this world I strive to be good. A good mom. A good wife. A good friend. A good Christian. I’ve been studying the story of creation. Those first verses of Genesis that are designed like the lyrics of an old song that everyone knows and sings but nobody really pays attention to the words... Continue Reading →

Christ’s Circus | By Mike McGuire

I don’t know if everyone knows this but I love watching movies! I recently had the pleasure of going with some pretty special people to see the Greatest Showman.
