Our Vision: “Know Christ, Live Christ, Share Christ”

The people of our church have a vision! We have a vision that begins with the faithfulness of those who have preceded us. We have a vision that emerges from our desire to be inspired and effective followers of Jesus Christ. We have a vision that grows in our hearts as we commit to serve him together.

Bible Study

Our church has a wonderful Bible Study group that generally meets every 4th Tuesday of the month from fall through spring.
We are a very friendly and somewhat informal group of folks that just love to get together to read and learn from God's word.
We would be so pleased if you would join us to share thoughts, questions, and insights concerning the teachings of our Lord.

One day I visited a member of the church I served in Rochester. It was the first time I had been to her home, which was located on a pretty side street on the west side of the city. As I sat on her couch in the sitting room with the sun shining in on a beautiful fall day, I asked her about her street and neighbors. In answering she mentioned that her brother lived next door. “That’s nice”, I said, “being able to live next to your brother “. And then she told me that that she had not spoken to her brother in fifty years. “Fifty years!” I asked her, “Why?” After giving it some thought for a moment she admitted that she couldn’t even remember why she and her brother had stopped speaking to each other. It had happened so long ago. She could not remember. They were so used to being apart that they never even thought about how it could be different. It’s not like they lived on opposite sides of the country and could easily avoid each other – they lived next door! Whatever drove them apart happened in their twenties and now they were pushing eighty.



Do you have a big “loose end” like this in your life? Is there a division or conflict that has never been resolved? What could happen? What needs to happen? What could you do to get things moving? First?

Matthew 5:21-26
“You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, ‘You
shall not murder’; and ‘whoever murders shall be liable to judgment.’
But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you
will be liable to judgment; and if you insult a brother or sister, you
will be liable to the council; and if you say, ‘You fool,’ you will be liable
to the hell of fire. So when you are offering your gift at the altar, if
you remember that your brother or sister has something against you,
leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to
your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift.”

So what do you think? Is this how it works for you? Do you have a brother or sister with something
against you? How do you take the first step in reconciliation? Make an appointment? Just wait for
a good moment? Insist that the other party has to take the first step? Intend to say something, but
never do? Get help from someone trusted by all parties? Jesus says the key word: “first”. Don’t
wait! You go first! What works for you as a first step?

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" Emma Lazarus, 1883

“You are the light of the world. A city built on a
hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp
puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lamp-
stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the
same way, let your light shine before others, so
that they may see your good works and give glory
to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Who are you with when your light is dimmest? Who are you with when your light is brightest?

Matthew 4:18-22
As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea--for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

"Immediately". Just think about that. Are there things that you do immediately? Step on the brakes while driving? Drop everything to help a crying baby? Answer the phone? Jump when the boss calls? Most of the time, though, we are slow and deliberate; rarely impulsive or thoughtless about what we do. What part of your faith and commitment to Jesus is immediate?

Come worship with us on Sunday at 9:45 AM.
