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.

Luke 15:3-7 The Lost Sheep

Have you ever lost something, like your wallet, purse or keys? What technique works best for finding what you've lost? Screaming for help? Systematic retracing of steps? Desperate ransacking of the house? Blaming someone else? Enlisting others to help you search?

Have YOU ever been lost? What did it feel like? Did someone find you? What did that feel like?

The story of the lost sheep seems to demonstrate that even with 99 sheep in hand the shepherd will not give up on the missing one. Could Jesus be trying to tell us that this is how God works with lost people?

Luke 15:1-7 Lost and Found

It's the beginning of a new fall season in our church. Sunday is a big party! We're serving a free pancake breakfast in the Dining Room starting at 9:00 AM. For fun, we invite children to wear pajamas to church. Adults can do the same if they dare! The service begins at 9:45 AM. After Children's Time during the service our young friends depart for Sunday School to learn more about "Lost and Found", based on the stories about Jesus in Luke 15.

But the Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water? [Luke 13:15]

Strict rules concerning the Sabbath, while honoring the intentions of God for people to have a day of rest, eventually became ways to stifle or limit the free gift of God’s grace that should be available to people at any time, especially their times of need.

At another point Jesus says “The Sabbath was created for the sake of people, not people for the sake of the Sabbath.” [Mark 3:27] It seems that Jesus thinks that Sabbath practices have value, but that such practices should be for enhancing grace, not limiting it.

But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, “There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the sabbath day.” [Luke 13:14]

When you think of “church”, do you think of “rules” or “grace”? Do we have rules in our church? Of course we do, though few of them are written or posted anywhere. We no longer insist on “no card-playing”, “no dancing”, or “women keep your heads covered”, but it is likely that those rules existed 200 years ago when our congregation first formed. Which rules continue to be important to us? Are there any rules we should do away with? Was Jesus breaking the Sabbath rules because he was a trouble-maker, or did he have a deeper purpose? Should our church be known in our community as a preserver of rules, or as a center of grace? Could we establish “rules” for grace?

But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, “There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the sabbath day.” [Luke 13:14]

How is Sunday a “sabbath”, that is, “ a day of rest” for you? What things ought to be done on a Sabbath day? What things ought not be done on a Sabbath day? Or should every day be the same, Sabbath or not?

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:13-21)

Is this parable a metaphor or allegory about the priorities of your life? Or does it actually contain specific practical advice for Christians concerning their wealth and possessions?
