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.

Matthew 6:25-34
25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you
will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food,
and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap
nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more
value than they? 27 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of
life? 28 And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory
was not clothed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is
alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you--you
of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we
drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things;
and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But strive first
for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will
be given to you as well. 34“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.
Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Got worries? Can you name three things that you worry about? Only three? I can name dozens of worries, ranging from worries about my weight and plans for exercise (too much and not enough), to worries about violence and war. Is it possible to live a worry free life? What aspects of worrying are unhealthy? Are there aspects of worrying that could be healthier? Do you think Jesus is giving a psychological/scientific lesson about worrying, or is he more interested in the theological point that God is in control when we like to think we're in control?

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?
