The Latest Message From Our Gathering

Good Friday
Psychotherapy With God

Tom’s sermon Saturday focused on Isaac, the son of Abraham. Tom posed the question, how could Isaac have become a well-functioning adult after his father almost sacrificed him as an act of faithfulness to God? One can only imagine how this event impacted Isaac and what types of thoughts and emotions he must have experienced. 

What is The Gospel: Kingdom

We’re in the middle of our series called “What is the Gospel?” where we approach the biblical concept of “Gospel” through four separate lenses: Creation, Sacrifice, Kingdom and Spirit. This past Sunday was Kingdom. Tom talks about our kingdoms, God’s Kingdom and why Jesus really meant what he said when you told the Rich Young Ruler to sell all of his things, give the money to the poor and follow him.
