Heart Prep for Sunday, January 16th

Well, we've already had our first canceled service of the New Year, and hopefully, that's the last one! And while Frank, Tom, and Eli did a great job with the online service, it reminded me once again how much I value worshipping together in person. I miss seeing everyone, I miss hearing everyone sing, I miss the corporate nature of corporate worship, and quite frankly, I ...

Heart Prep for Sunday, January 2nd

Wow, by the time we meet again it will be the New Year. And we all want 2022 to be a lot more hopeful (and less stressful) than the past few years. But who knows? Well, God does. And that's a great reason for us to begin the New Year in the Book of Deuteronomy (the 5th book of the Bible). There are several themes that run through Deuteronomy that seem particularly applicab...

Hopefully this finds you prepared for the holidays! As you might have seen on the Facebook group, a number of families in the church are dealing with COVID right now. Please be praying for them, not only for physical healing, but also for comfort for the disappointment of potentially missing out on family gatherings. But if you're healthy and able, we hope to see you at bo...

Heart Prep for the Fourth Sunday in Advent

Well, it's hard to believe, but this Sunday is the Fourth Sunday in Advent (the last Sunday before Christmas). We'll continue to light the Advent Wreath, sing Christmas Hymns (and hear the Christmas Choir), and spend some time seeing Jesus accomplish some important things over a meal. This Sunday we come to our fourth meal in our Advent series on "Meals with Jesus." We fe...

Heart Prep for the Third Sunday in Advent

Wow, we're halfway through Advent and it doesn't quite feel like Christmas yet. Yes, the Christmas lights are starting to fill my neighborhood. Yes, the incessant playing of modern Christmas music, neither hymns, carols, or classics, but songs that are sugary sweet and about as nutritious, has filled the airwaves (does anyone actually like Wham! and why do we have to hear...

Heart Prep for the First Sunday in Advent

Wow, autumn has flown by, and winter is almost here. We've finished with the Book of Philippians, we're about to feast on Thanksgiving turkey, and then, starting this Sunday, we move into the season of Advent. Thus, we're going to start a short Advent series on "Meals with Jesus." And we'll begin in John 2:1-11 with the feast at a wedding in Cana, the scene of Jesus' first...

Heart Prep for Sunday, November 14th

We're almost done with the Book of Philippians, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and Advent begins the following week. It's hard to believe we're almost at the end of the year. And it's been quite a year full of trials and testing, relational conflict, and filled with cultural disruption. As someone famous once wrote, "It's been the best of times it's been the wo...

Heart Prep for Sunday, November 7th

One of the big issues in the evangelical world in recent years has been the phenomenon of "deconstructing the faith" or what we used to call "deconversion." It addresses the situation concerning a former believer, a former member of the church, who has announced that he or she has left the faith. There have been a number of well-known musicians and celebrity pastors who ha...

Heart Prep for Sunday, October 31st

This Sunday is Reformation Day! It's also the Sunday that we come to the Lord's Table, and it's also the day of the Fall Festival. Lots to pack into a single day, and there's a lot to unpack from our passage this week too. Our passage this week, Philippians 3:1-11, addresses an old issue. Where do we put our confidence for salvation? Do we put our confidence in the flesh? ...

Heart Prep for Sunday, October 24th

Have you ever asked your kids (or any kids), "What do you want to be when you grow up?" And most kids will answer by telling you what they want to do when they grow up. Of course, very few kids actually end up doing what they said when they were four. Otherwise, our country would be full of cowboys and princesses. We still confuse this question, though. We often mix up wh...
