  • Did you know that fasting is mentioned in the New Testament more often than baptism? Most of you probably think fasting is for the spiritual elite, or the crazy committed. But what if fasting was a tool for helping us better hear from God, pray more directly, seek the transformation of our world, repent more readily, and altogether be livened in our spirit?


  • This past Sunday, we looked at two of the biggest obstacles in studying the Bible: discipline and recall.

     

    Some of you may feel significant challenge in getting a consistent time in the Word. Some of you may be in the Word, but are unable to recall, or feel forgetful of what you've read in recent time.

     

    In both cases, we need to be reminded of the holiness of God and power of the text to transform and shape our lives.


  • The Vision and Prayer Breakfast is one of our favorite Sundays of the year. We get an opportunity to look back at the previous year, look ahead into the new year, and join together in prayer.

     

    Take a look at what we reviewed. 


  • Eating is a significant theme throughout the entire Bible. From the feasts and festivals of the Old Testament, to the meal Jesus shares with his disciples the night before he dies, and the final feast in heaven, the Bible affirms a great joy and delight as God's people eat together.

    Many of your Christmas traditions involve food and family. Last Sunday, we remembered the practice of feasting together as a joy-filled, Christ-centered, hope-reminding activity. Our hope is that as we eat, we would never forget the giver of food and life who is at the center of it all!


  • Waiting is a universal experience during the holiday season. We are waiting for packages, waiting in lines, we are waiting in traffic. 

    So what if we saw this everyday experience as an opportunity to be reminded of what it means to wait for God? Waiting is a massive theme of the Bible, as we see God's people being constantly hopeful and expectant for God to come and restore the kingdom.
