We do not talk about meditation very often, but it is mentioned frequently in the Bible. Have our lives become so busy that it is difficult to slow down and meditate on God, His works and His word?  

Water Into Wine

The first miracle of Jesus recorded by John is not a life-changing healing or the feeding of a multitude. Jesus changes water into wine for a wedding that had run out. Even in this first sign we learn that Jesus always goes above and beyond what is expected.  

Back to Basics

Why do we need disciplines? This week we begin a new series about Spiritual Disciplines. Our longing for God and desire to grow require the presence of disciplines in our lives.  

Getting Started

In the second half of John 1, John the Baptist prepares the way for the beginning of the ministry of Jesus. As we begin 2020, we can learn a lot from John about how to start off the right way.  

December 2019


The word “life” is used 134 times in the New Testament. Nearly half of those can be found in John’s writings. We talk about at what John says about life and what it means for our life with Christ.  

Word Made Flesh

Jesus was there in the beginning, but what happens in John 1 is incredible. God became flesh. Jesus came to Earth to live among men and reveal more of God to them. And because He did, we can be with God.  

Devoted to Good Works

Three times in the last chapter of Titus, Paul stresses the importance of good works. We do not do good works in an attempt to earn our salvation. We do good works to glorify the God who saves us by His power.  


People can build us up or let us down. Sometimes the same people can do both. At the close of his second letter to Timothy, Paul tells Timothy some important things about people and some even more important things about God.  

Keeping the Faith

In 2 Timothy 4, Paul wants to give Timothy a final charge and word of encouragement. Like Timothy we all have work that God has equipped us to do. It is up to us to keep at it for the cause of Christ.  


In the church we have a responsibility to model Christianity to those around us. We help each other grow closer to Christ, because He gave His life for us. His grace brings us hope.
