Serving Beyond Church Events

“We would love for you to get plugged into this ministry.” “Could you start serving in this area once a week?” “Is the Lord leading you to get involved with what He’s doing here?” Let’s face it. We’ve all heard these (well-meaning) pitches for serving in church and ministry. There are many incredible opportunities to reach the lost and make disciples, but jobs, studies, and other ministry roles can prevent us from adding another service project to our weekly schedules.…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 9

We are finishing up the book of Numbers this week and we’ll move into the book of Deuteronomy.  Deuteronomy restates and reinforces the law that God has already given.  Repetition is a good thing.  Deuteronomy is an “expansion of much of the original law given on Mount Sinai” so pay attention and don’t miss what God is communicating.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions below…

Let Your Spouse Off the Hook

Marriage is bound to have some troubles.  You must address conflict with your spouse wisely, and many things need to be addressed.  But I believe there are some things of which you simply need to let your spouse off the hook. Don’t get me wrong: some things need to be addressed!  But you need to address that which the spouse deserves to have addressed. I realized early in marriage that I never responded to my wife based solely on what…

Incorrect Perception: The Pushover God While each of us knows what it is like to walk…
