God's Ordinary Means of Grace and Growth

How does God get his extraordinary work done in us and through us? He gets his work done through the ordinary things of the Word, fellowship with believers, singing, our weekly gatherings, and of course prayer. In Sunday's sermon, "Christ-Filled Prayer," we began by exploring this idea of God's ordinary means of grace and growth. It's an important paradigm as we think about our church, what we're doing, why we do it, what we should do, etc. ...Keep Reading

Singing Lessons for Heaven’s Choir

On Sunday morning we stumbled upon one of the New Testament’s two points of instruction on singing. Apparently, we need singing lessons. Some of us can’t carry a tune, and others of us have been singing since we were children. But when it comes to singing, this little pocket manual puts our attention on a whole different set of priorities for our singing; the things that make our singing acceptable to God, and a joy to hear, whatever the tonal quality. ...Keep Reading

A Song for the Reformation

This month we'll be singing a new song with a beautiful text by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester, called, Reformation Song.

A Very Short, Always Needed Prayer

On August 27 we began a new series through Paul's letter to the Colossians, Fullness in Christ. At the head of this letter, Paul offers a familair greeting, which is a kind of short prayer: "To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father" (1:2). This is more than a well-wish, but a prayer for the full experience of the grace and the peace of Christ in the life of this church and in ours....Keep Reading

Are You Lukewarm?

To the church at Laodicea, Jesus said, "because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth" (3:16). Would Jesus say to that to us? Would Jesus say that about you? In Sunday's sermon, "Lukewarm in Laodicea: Jesus’ Words to a Self-Sufficient Church," we took that question seriously....Keep Reading
