There is nothing more powerful in this world than the living and active Word of God. It has the power to change lives, to transform character, and most important, to rescue human beings from death and eternal destruction by giving the gift of forgiveness and free salvation through Jesus.

Change! God's Son is coming.

God’s Word for the 2nd Sunday in Advent is Matthew chapter 3 verses 1 to 12 (Matthew 3:1-12 ESV)
In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 3 For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said,

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

‘Prepare the way of the Lord;

make his paths straight.’ ”

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

We Want Justice!

2 Thessalonians 1:3–10 (NIV)

My dear friends in Christ,
“We want justice!” Can you think of reasons why people are demanding justice? I think about the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement with the police shootings that have taken place: Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO; Jamar Clark and Philando Castille here in Minneapolis. I don’t think it’s only Black Lives Matter who would like to see justice done. We all want the truth. We all want to know what happened and why. Whose fault was it? We want justice!

Richer Marriage

How is your marriage? Would you like it to be richer? God instituted marriage between one man and one woman, and only he can make marriage richer. Partnering with Life Innovations, before coming to the enrichment weekend, both spouses will complete an online survey and receive a customized report on ten areas of married life. Then, together, we’ll seek God’s grace to build on strengths and overcome weaknesses. During the weekend couples will also learn how to improve communication, move through conflict, determine roles, grow in intimacy and improve financial relationships.

Faith wants more

God's Word for the twentieth Sunday after Pentecost is Luke chapter 17 verses 11 to 17.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
