Absurd Abundance (Jodi Houge 6/21/17)

There are some aspects of this classic Sunday School story which we probably haven't pondered before... and doing so might just open up some helpful ways to think about what to do with what we've been given.

Called (again) And Sent (again) (Natalia Terfa 6/18/17)

I’m not sure we could have this hammered home any more than it has been already, but Jesus gives us yet another call to go out into the world. We’ve been forgiven - while we were still sinners we’ve been forgiven- so now we go out to do the same. Easy right? Ha. Today, we’ll see why we need to hear this as often as Jesus keeps saying it.

Gratitude (Natalia Terfa 6/11/17)

Gratitude. What does it mean to be grateful? How can we cultivate gratitude in every circumstance? And what does it have to do with our faith? Join us this Sunday as we kick off an all ages 30 day gratitude practice!

Grad Sunday (6/4/17)

Relationships are a huge part of our faith journey. Is there a specific individual that comes to mind when you think about who has shaped your faith? Contact them to thank them for this blessing. Or, pray that God would give you an opportunity to share faith with someone. You may also need to pray for the courage to actually do it too!

Scripture: Acts 2:1-21

Song: "Holy Spirit" written by Bryan & Katie Torwalt; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Prayer Training (Natalia Terfa 5/28/17)

Sometimes it’s hard to stay strong in the face of difficult things, and even harder when those things are hard to understand. Today the disciples say goodbye to Jesus, again. And he’s got some things to say before he goes… this time, they listen.

Scripture: Acts 1:6-14; John 17:1-11

Song: "The Solid Rock" written by E. Mote, W. B. Bradbury, et al.; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Naming God (Chad Brekke 5/21/17)

I suppose the life of faith would be easier if we could decide what kind of god we follow. I would choose a god that would allow me to focus on my own interests. Worship would be held up north on the lake except for festival Sundays which would be held on the golf course. Offering would not be collected at either of those services. Paul ran into this kind of religion in Athens. What he says about it caused some to laugh at him while others were never the same again.

Scripture: Acts 17:22-31; John 14:15-21

The Way (Natalia Terfa 5/14/17)

This section of scripture is often read at funerals as it gives great comfort to those who have lost a loved one, and it contains some BIG promises for those who have died. Let’s dig into this one to see what it might have to say to those of us who are living as well!

Scripture: 1 Peter 2: 2-10; John 14:1-12

Song: "Come As You Are" written by B. Glover, D. Crowder & M. Maher; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Glory Days (Chad Brekke 5/7/17)

It is not uncommon to be nostalgic for days gone by. This is often especially true when it comes to the church. Change is often met with resistance if not disappointment or even anger. What if our glory days were not in our past or even in our future? What if we are living in the glory days right now?

Scripture: Acts 2:42-47; Psalm 23; John 10:1-10

Song: "White Flag" written by C. Tomlin, J. Ingram, et al; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Burning Hearts (Natalia Terfa 4/30/17)

Today’s story on the road to Emmaus is familiar, not because Luke 24 is so common, but because we’ve been where the disciples are today. Without hope. Heading home with disappointment weighing heavy. And yet, they aren’t on that road alone. Turns out this story of the Emmaus road has much to teach us about hope and hopelessness?

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:17-23; Luke 24: 13-35

Song: "Never Once" written by J. Ingram, M. Redman & T. Wanstall; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band
