We see the stars and the gossip flooding TMZ, magazines, and even the daily news, and we often think “it must be nice to be them” because, after all, they seem to have it all – good looks, money, and an important status. However, we also see the negative effects of the limelight and how it impacts their social wellbeing and faith, or often, the lack of it. Yet, we still want fame for ourselves. Join us as we discuss the biblical standpoint of fame, and how God wants his celebrities to represent Him.

In general, the Christian body strives to maintain a sense of “good” and “morality” within their homes; however, sometimes that task becomes a bit more trying when it comes to morality within the world. We want to be difference makers, but in a world so different from The Kingdom, how are we to behave and represent the Lord? Sometimes, what is asked from us biblically and secularity are different; what do we do?

All we see on the television, hear about in the news, and read on Facebook is the big political race. This November, America will be electing a new president. With so many hot topics that each candidate is addressing, how is the Christian body supposed to address such heated situations with God in mind? Where are we even supposed to stand politically? Join us Sunday to find out.

It seems, now more so than ever, that the issue with gender identity among individuals is on the rise. With such a prominent situation being addressed on the daily news, in the schools, and in our work spaces, how are we, as a congregation, supposed to address gender identity and those who have been questioning their own?

Racism is still prominent today. Despite the nation’s best efforts to move forward with equality among all men, it still has struggled with these goals. Therefore, as a body separate from the nation and this world, the Christian congregation must also combat such a strife with the love of God. What should the church do (not just the leadership) in response to racism? Is it present in worship today?

Why do these things happen? Why does God allow them? How can people do these things? Do we have to live in fear? And how do we respond to others in light of the fear that has grown in the U.S. and in the world? Join us for worship on Sunday to find out and discuss these vital topics.

Join us as we pass the “baton” of Children’s Ministry from Sheri VanderKam to Callie Coe. We celebrate the exciting new adventures for Sheri as she is received by her new church, Hillside, and we will pray for both Sheri and Callie as they work to fulfill their new positions.

Many of us don’t think of having enemies—or if we do, we see them as distant (foreign terrorists, etc.). But an enemy is anyone who sets themselves against us—and there are many who do this. Jesus’ countrymen fully understood “enemy”, and were amazed that Jesus could say the way to treat these people was to love them. How do we do this? What does “loving your enemy” look like today?

Anywhere in the world you will see people striving to be great. More money, more power, more influence, more fame—all more than others. These are the things we believe make people great. Even the greatness of churches are measured by whether they have more people, more buildings or more money than others. But Jesus said this was the world’s approach, not his. Instead, if we are to be great, we have to become the servant of everyone.
