Seeds of the Kingdom

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Just before the snow storms hit, we did enjoy a beautiful Sunday of worship. At the close of the Humanize Me series, we took a minute to offer ourselves to the Lord in prayer, recommitting our lives to the Friend of Sinners. I pray in that moment, some gave their lives to Christ for...

Posted by Jennifer Holz on

The beauty (and chilliness) of fall is upon us! I love this time of year as the seasons change, reminding us of God’s faithfulness all year long. In the agricultural cycle, fall is the time for harvest. I think of Jesus’ words to his disciples in Luke 10:2: The harvest is plentiful...

The Advocate

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Have you ever needed an advocate? Have you needed someone to step in and speak for you, make your case and defend your name? Lawyers get a bad rap sometimes and there is no end to lawyer jokes. But when you need one, you want a good one. A good lawyer can carry your interests into the courts of...

This past week many of us followed Hurricane Dorian’s path of destruction. Though we did so from a safe distance here in Colorado, none of us are immune from life’s sudden storms that can abruptly turn our lives upside down. One of our First Pres values is “No one hurts...

A Leader to Follow

Posted by Tim McConnell on

One of the things I am enjoying about our series, Humanize Me, is how it is giving me a different perspective on Jesus. This Jesus is a leader worth following. I spend a lot of time preaching and teaching on the divinity of Jesus. Jesus is the Savior of the world and Lord of all. Jesus is the...
