Fulfilling Life

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Our fourth grader is doing a project for school on Nikola Tesla. No, he never invented a car. But he did invent the alternating current (AC) induction motor, a remote-controlled boat and X-ray technology, and he paved the way for wireless communication. Unlike his counterparts who preferred...

Posted by Tim McConnell on

After Vision Sunday last week, our staff quickly turned the entire campus around to host the ECO National Gathering for 2019. By Sunday night our church was filled with sponsor tables, registration desks and materials so that the larger movement of churches to which we belong could come and be...

In Your Hands

Posted by Tim McConnell on

What a bitter, frozen day it is today! I hope you are inside and warm, able to stay off the roads. I’m glad Colorado is getting this out of the system before our ECO National Gathering next week. One way or another the church will always carry on. How many moments in history threatened...

The lights are down, the decorations in the box, but we are still figuring out what to do with this year’s Christmas tree! It wasn’t too long ago I was holding a candle on December 24, waiting to sing “Silent Night” and lift the light against the darkness. As we gathered...

Christmas Day

Posted by Tim McConnell on

It is Christmas Day. From this day we count all our days. Do you still think about how remarkable that is? It is December 25, 2018. The calendar reports today that is it 2018 years since the day Jesus was born. From that day we count all our days. Now, I really mean that. In the literal sense...

Setting the Table

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I knew when we had four kids we would have to wait a little longer for a table. When I was in high school, I worked for the Olive Garden as a host. I was the one to hand out the little buzzing squares and tell people the bad news—“It’ll be thirty minutes at least.” But...

Magnify the Lord

This Sunday, we continued our series Time for Joy, talking about the little moment in Luke 1 when Elizabeth and Mary met together. Elizabeth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, was able to claim faith in the unborn Jesus as “Lord.” Mary, moved by the Holy Spirit at work in her, sang...
