---Welcome!

 

We believe salvation is the start of a
meaningful and effective life in Christ.

 
Our desire is to strengthen our communities by strengthening the life of every believer. We seek to grow confident followers of Christ in all areas of life through biblical tools and practical application.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 LIVE

 

Living life can be challenging, especially if you are in a new environment, surrounded by new people. A life of Christ is to be lived among a community of believers, so together we can live encouraged, motivated, and effective. 
 
“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.”
     – Philippians 2:15
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 

 LEARN

 

The mission of the church is to equip believers with faith and practical tools of how to bring the Lord’s Kingdom hear on earth. Through Jesus we are given a new life and need to learn how to live in the world, but not of it.
 
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives”
     – 2 Timothy 3:16
 
 
 
 
 
 

 LEAD

 

One of the most effective ways we lead is through our life. The way we speak and respond will set a tone in our home and community. Leaders are not born, they are developed. A leader’s effectiveness is determined by who they follow.
 

“Follow me as I follow Christ”  
     – 1 Corinthians  11:1

“A outward growth comes natural when you have had an inward growth.”

Salvation is not earned through works, but through grace alone. But now that we are saved, we work for the Lord. “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.”  – Matthew 9:37

Spilt Milk

Have you ever heard the expression, “don’t cry over spilt milk”? Well, today I had a spilt milk incident. But my story actually starts the day before the milk-spilling catastrophe. Our family had been looking for new upholstered chairs for our desk area for quite some time and we finally found a great deal at a yard sale. We proudly brought home our new beige chairs and my husband started to assemble them. After building the first 4, he realized that there was one more chair seat, but there wasn’t another chair back or legs. I went to bed that night pondering what we could do with just a chair seat—possibly a stool, maybe a floor chair for the kids—my thoughts went on until I decided that with 5 kids we should probably hold on to that extra chair seat in case there was the inevitable stain that I couldn’t get out somewhere down the road. And with that thought, I drifted off to sleep.

The next morning, I got up early to work at the computer in the new comfortable chair when our oldest son woke up and wanted to “work” too. So he gathered some Legos and sat down in the other new desk chair and stated building. I surprised him with a cup of chocolate milk (what was I thinking!?!) and then I needed to step away to use the restroom. I reminded him to drink the cup with both hands as I walked away. As I walked back, literally one minute later, I rounded the corner to see a mother’s nightmare—brown chocolate milk spilt right in the center of the new chair cushion! There was chocolate milk soaking in and dripping down our beautiful new seat—after a second of panic I took a deep breath, said a prayer, and asked my son to help me clean it up. As I was cleaning I knew that there could be a lesson learned from this fiasco, so I asked the Lord, “What can I learn from this moment? Let it not go to waste.” And then I heard Him gently whisper, “Child, I know the answer before you even know there is a problem.” That’s when my previous nights thoughts came flooding my mind. The Lord had already shown me that we should save the extra seat to possibly replace a stained seat, and I could clearly see that the Lord was in that late night thought. I didn’t actually cry over the spilt milk, but I was sure glad that I could learn a lesson from this less-then-desirable accident. Maybe the problem looming around the corner in your life is a flooded house, an ill family member, a lost job, a broken relationship, financially problems, or countless other problems that this fallen world likes to present in the most inconvenient moments. But the good news is that the Lord not only knows your problem before you do, and He not only has the answer, but He IS the answer! Continue to seek after Him whether you are sailing calmly through life or if you are in the midst of a storm. Cling to the Lord and put your trust in Him!

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
    do not depend on your own understanding.
 Seek his will in all you do,
    and he will show you which path to take”

                                    Proverbs 3: 5-6

Crowding Out

Today I was reflecting on weight loss choices and methods all around our country. There are countless diets and meal plans, shakes and supplements, gyms and exercise classes— and with them, come a lot of don’ts. DON’T eat too much sugar, DON’T drink soda, DON’T eat fast food, DON’T snack too much, DON’T even look at that ice cream…and on and on they go. I believe in a different approach to achieving health—because most people know they shouldn’t do these things and telling them over and over again may just drive them to “rebel” and to them anyways just because they can!

Instead, I believe we should “Crowd Out” these behaviors with health choices. Encouraging others to simply eat more fruits and veggies a day, drink more water, and incorporate a yummy smoothie everyday will put them on a path of adding more healthy and enjoying foods to their diet and will gradually start to crowd out the bad choices until all you are left with is a healthy lifestyle.

In the same way, there are things that we instinctively know are not healthy life choices. Many times we, or others, make bad decisions and live in unhealthy life situations (living with unmarried partner, stuck in a bad habit, destructive spending, etc.) But pointing a finger, nagging, and lecturing is not the answer. Yes, God does tell us the “don’ts” in the Bible, but He also desires us to live an abundantly joyful life filled with excitement and motivation! We should draw people in with the positives of living a life dedicated to God. Instead of telling new Christians a giant list of what they can’t do…what if instead, we told them all of the wonderful things that we can do in and through Christ!!! Living in joy, peace, and love. Walking in the power of the Spirit, hearing God’s voice, being used to impact the lives of others. What if we focused on the DO’S instead of the DON’TS…I think that a relationship with a loving, caring, and dynamic God is a lot more attractive than a religion filled with rules and regulations. Lets crowd out this world with the life of GOD!!! Who is with me!
