Holy Week Resources

In the busy-ness of everyday life, it's easy to let Easter sneak up on us without much thought, preparation, or meditation.

But whether we recognize it or not and whether we prepare for it or not, the fact remains that the events we remember during the Easter season are of pre-emi...

Resources on Prayer | Brian Chesemore

Last week I had the privilege of revisiting some great books on prayer as I prepared for my message on Luke 11.1-13. Reading on this topic is a joyful reminder of the unspeakable privilege we have as the redeemed to call God, “Father.” For me, reading on prayer is a necessary habit, as I tend to so quickly move away from an appropriate mindset of dependence up...

You may remember the encouragement that CJ gave our church several weeks ago to pick a prophet to study. “As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord” James 5:10.

Recently I had the privilege to read and discuss Bob Kauflin’s book True Worshipers, with a group of men from our church. Each of us benefitted from the book and were excited to apply it to our lives. Here’s an encouraging glimpse into how it impacted Beau McKenzie. What happens when we don’t want to sing?

Preparing for Suffering | C.J. Mahaney

Over the past several weeks, CJ has led our church to look to our God and Savior in our grief. A few weeks ago, in his message from Habakkuk, he specifically explored how we, as christians, should respond when life doesn't make sense. Suffering is a reality in our fallen world. Everyone will, at some point in their lives, experience it. But not everyone will be prepared fo...

Eight Great Books About the Gospel

I agree with Luther, "I still cannot hear the gospel enough. Each morning I seek to preach the gospel to myself by my study of Scripture and through the strategic reading of supplemental boo...

We also took time to discuss various chapters assigned to us from a book entitled Excellence by Andreas KÃ...

What a delightful Fathers Day we enjoyed together as a church yesterday. Who didn't feel the pleasure of God as McKenna Sturgeon honored her father? And thanks to Bethany Payne for the creation of the very cool and very masculine gift honoring fathers yesterday: duct tape and a Snickers bar! Exactly what real men want on Father's Day!
