The Holiday Challenge:​ By Andrea Olson

Every year I am amazed at how quickly October and early November fly by.  After our big, yearly Overflow Worship Conference at the beginning of October, life is always full.  Maybe I’m trying to make up for everything I missed during the busy conference season, or maybe there is so much that I can finally …

Who Are You : An Outsider’s Perspective

God calls all of us to ministry. There isn’t a single one of us who hasn’t been placed with the purpose to share Jesus and make disciples. None of us are exempt from “walking worthy”. For some, this calling is to step in front of the body of Christ to lead us before the throne …

Renewed Intention

I heard a sermon a few weeks ago during sanctity of human life Sunday. The same question has been on my mind since. Am I consistently valuing people? The sermon broke down the dignity of human life to a simple concept. What if we stopped waiting for a significant moment to prove our faith, and …
