A Church on Mission

As a new year begins we wanted to talk about the vision God has put on our hearts: To reach our valley with the hope that is only found in Jesus and see lives transformed by the grace of God.

Nahum prophesied about God’s wrath falling on Nineveh. We may not want to think about God’s wrath and judgement, but a universal reckoning is coming where God will dispense justice just as he did to Nineveh. The refuge Nahum talks of is God himself.

Is Jesus Your Lord?

With the new year comes resolutions of things we want to see changed. If we’re not careful they can become self centered: “What I’m going to accomplish for myself”. A good question as we start the new year is: How can I glorify God this next year?

The Wonder of Christmas

In Luke 2 as the shepherds told the story of what they had seen and heard the people hearing it were in wonder. Not the scratching your head type of wonder, but the sense that something magnificent had happened.
