Let’s face it, life isn’t easy. In times of loss, grief, pain, or doubt, it’s normal to have questions — and it’s
okay to ask them. If you’ve ever tried to make sense of your circumstances, or wished life didn’t have to hurt so much, or wondered why God won’t fix what you’re going through, you’re not alone. In this 4-week series, I Have Questions, we’ll hear about a few people from Scripture who know exactly what it’s like. With Esther, David, Peter, Amos, and John, we’ll explore hard questions you thought you weren’t allowed to ask, like “When people are hurting, where is God? When I’m hurting, why does God feel far away? If God is good, why do bad things happen? And when life hurts, is God listening?”
You know what I hate? I hate when I'm really hurt, or upset, or sad, or stressed out about something,
but I don't feel like I have anyone to talk to about it — at least, not anyone who'd really get it or really
care. Pain does that. It makes you feel alone, and isolated, and afraid that no one else could possibly
understand what you're going through. When things are really painful, you might even ask questions
like, "When life hurts, is God listening?" You and I aren't the only people to ever ask that question. It's actually in the Bible. A lot. Especially in the book of Psalms, which is a collection of poems and songs, the psalmist writes a lot about his own pain. Here's where he lands (and what God confirms): yeah, life hurts sometimes. But even when our prayers are full of anger, hurt, doubt, or accusations, God's still there and — yes, still patiently, lovingly listening.
Join us as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God." We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting with each other. See ya' there!!
Bring your middle or highschooler to the church at 7:30pm on October 29th and then come get them at 6:00am on October 30th!
This is going to be an awesome night full of worship, fun, prizes, fellowship, but most importantly for your teenagers, an encounter with Christ.
THERE IS NO PACKING LIST! There will be no sleeping so be prepared for an action-packed, sleep deprived night! Part of the evening we will go out bowling and then right back to the church for the rest of the event. There will be more information to follow, but contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns!
Are you a generous person? What qualifies someone as a generous person? Is it a billionaire philanthropist who gives millions to charity? Or someone contributing time to working at a soup kitchen? Do generous people look at the world differently? This four-week series examines the biblical understanding of generosity. By looking at the character of God, the good Samaritan, the widow’s offering, and Paul’s encouragement to give generously, we will see that God wants us to be generous in all areas of our life.
Generosity is a virtue that comes from the character of God and consists of giving to others without getting anything in return.
Many people don't know, but there are many things the VA Medical Center can't purchase to help our veterans. Sometimes that's a thing like a van. For real... That's where the Veterans for Veterans Rally come in.
Veterans for Veterans Biker Event is a family event open to all who appreciate what our veterans do every day and want to thank them for their service. There will be music, food & drinks (no alcohol), a bike show, bike games, a car show, and a silent auction. There also will be children's activities, speakers and proclamations, and a 50/50 drawing. 100% of the proceeds go to our locally hospitalized Veterans.
This will be our November Serve Day. We will be heading over to Riverpark Church to do what we do best - serve our community and have some fun. It will be a busy day - we'll need folks to man our information booth, be part of the cooking team, be part of the food serving team, and help prep on Friday. There's plenty to do for all, so come be a part. We are wearing our gold serve shirts, so be sure to sign up.
