Love Your Enemy - Thoughts with Pastor Matt

Love your neighbor, that's not too hard. 
Love your enemy... now wait a minute! 

Jesus calls us to a way of Love, not hate. The call to love our enemies is not just for their sake, it's actually for our own! Grudges and hate trap us like prisoners and ends up doing more hurt to ourselves than to the other person that we are angry with. 

Key Scripture: Matthew 5:33-34

Sunday Morning Service

10:30 am in the Worship Center, On the Patio, or Online!

July 3 - Greater Discipline

Is Christian unity possible when we disagree on social issues? 

Together we will learn how to have civil discussions and engage with one another. We would love to see you, hear you, and learn from you. You are invited to join in on the conversation. Click here to register!  

6:30 pm in the Orchard Library

July 13 -  We will be watching the documentary "Purple." At a time of immense division, PURPLE tells the story of Americans with opposing viewpoints confronting their disagreements head-on and discovering the concerns and experiences that lie behind each other’s positions. Filmed in rural Wisconsin and Iowa – in a swing region within two bordering swing states – PURPLE presents a rare political conversation that uplifts, provokes, and inspires while going toward the heat of passionate political differences. As the midterm election fans the flames of already-volatile divisions, PURPLE offers a vision for what a healthy public debate on fault-line issues might look like 

July 20 -  We will look at biblical guidance for having civil conversations, even when we have different beliefs on a subject. We will look at scripture and discuss what informs us: Does theology/scripture inform our opinions, decisions, and actions? Or does a political party or person inform us?

July 27 -  We will look at three different social issues/concerns and see how and where Christians can be Biblically informed and hold a variety of perspectives. 

Questions - contact Judy Alexandre

3rd-5th Grade SUMMER CAMP:

July 24-29, 2022
$420 ($50 deposit due at sign-up)

Did you know that God thinks you are amazing? He does! So much so, that you were His idea! That’s right. You! He created all of us and has a plan and a purpose for every single person. God wants each of us to be a part of His story, but sometimes it seems impossible that He could use someone like you. In Luke 1:37, the Bible tells us that “nothing will be impossible with God.” This means that when God makes a promise, He will ALWAYS keep it. Will you follow His call even when it seems impossible? God wants us to join Him in the not so-Impossible Journey of His redemption and love! How will you respond?
  • Wild Rock is a five-day camp specifically designed for students entering 3rd - 5th grade. It is a safe place where students will learn about their great God through age-appropriate teaching, engaging worship, and time outdoors in His creation.
