Parables of Jesus: "The New and the Old"

Randy Christian

Change can be welcomes or dreaded. But change does come, and, when it does, it often affects far more than what we are hoping for. Sometimes, when change needs to happen, it needs to happen broadly. How can we tell? And how can we handle the good changes?

Christmas Is - Forgiveness

Randy Christian

So, do you struggle with forgiveness? Most people would see forgiveness as part of the “Christmas spirit”. But do they understand that forgiveness is actually the design of the original Christmas? Grace and Trust are given by Jesus and by us— and the result of that is forgiveness. When we understand that, we celebrate differently, because we are aware of the gift God has given us. AND we are able to pass that gift on to others because we have received it first!

Randy Christian

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.

The ADVENTure - Hope

November 30, 2008

Imagine you have never heard about Christmas—never celebrated Christmas. No trees, no stockings, no gifts, no carols, no church programs. You don’t know anything about Christmas—but you do know things aren’t right in the world—in fact, things aren’t right in you. You want things to be different. You want a reason to believe they can be. You want hope for the future. The coming of Jesus meant hope to the people who had heard the prophecies, and that hasn’t changed. In fact, Jesus is the only one who can bring real hope!
