    Contributed by Jonathan Kruschel on Oct 12, 2020
     | 1,244 views

    Who is winning? Churches stand empty or partially filled as compared to last year. How does Jesus expect us to make it through? "Look around and listen!" told his disciples and tells us.

    As Jesus and his disciples were walking through the busy city of Jerusalem, the disciples began to comment how impressive this place was. No matter how many times they had been there before, they couldn’t help but be amazed by the great structures that surrounded them: Herod’s palace, the mighty ...read more

    It must have been quite the sight, the people lining the lingering road that lead from the Mount of Olives down and then up into the city of Jerusalem.

    “What do you want?” “I don’t know. What do you want?” “I’m not sure, what do you think?” “I don’t know. What do you think?” Sound familiar?

    Jesus gives personal and purposeful peace. See how Jesus did that for his disciples on Easter evening and continues to do so to this day.

    Last week we met two of Jesus’ followers on their way from the city of Jerusalem to a village named Emmaus which was about a 7 mile roundtrip. If you missed that message, you can go back and listen to it. It was Easter afternoon when those two disciples decided to leave Jerusalem. There were ...read more

     | 2,044 views

    Which plan are you now on? Plan B, C, D, L, Q, Z? The pandemic caused us to scrap plans and revise them. So what's the Lord's plan on in all of this? Does he have one? What's it look like?

    Which plan are you now on? Plan B, C, D, L, Q, Z? It feels like whenever I’ve made a plan during the last week, it needs to be changed every couple of hours. Last weekend we gathered in this place for worship with some precautionary modifications, and at the end of the service I said, “We’ll ...read more
