A Celebration 7-13-2019

“I think that in the midst of the complexities and messiness of life we forget to look at the moments when we have peace and joy.  Though it isn’t one of the 10 commandments, I think because of the repetition of God inviting us to CELEBRATE we should be paying more attention to it.  Why don’t we do that?  Why not CELEBRATE today what God has done for you and I?”                                                                                                                                                                                Pastor Tony Montenegro

Unstuckness 6-22-2019

Have you ever been stuck? Stuck in the Atlanta traffic, stuck in a bad situation, in emotional stress, in your spiritual life? The Bible talks about growing, moving, walking free.  My wonderment is how does moving and walking free look like in real life.  How can I grow into a mature spiritual person that is in constant movement?  It seems to me that the reason we are here this morning is already the first step of our movement!

Where Is You Faith? 6-15-2019

Most people assume that the question “where is your faith?” is rhetorical and suggests that the person being asked has no faith at all. In this case, the question is real and specific. Where have you put your faith? In whom, or in what, have you rested your deepest hopes and dreams? Do your actions reflect that? Would an outside observer know immediately where your faith is?                                                                          Elder Brian Cummings

When Life Changes 6-8-2019

Ada’s Eyes 6-1-2019

What determines how GOD sees you?

What determines how you see GOD?

What determines how you see others?

Are your answers to these 3 questions the same or different?                                                                                                                                                                 Elder Donna Jennings

Celebrate 5-25-2019

What does God celebrate? In our experience with God, He invites us to not only do the works He is doing around us, but also to celebrate what He celebrates. What is it that God celebrates?                                                                                  Pastor Nate Elias

Eternal Agenda 5-18-2019

Have you considered what your eternal person’s agenda is? Consider that no matter your status in this world, you are called to be a spiritual leader.

Service 5-11-2019

The discipline of service is less about doing and more about being. Being present in relationship with God is expressed through being in relationship with others. How we treat the body of Christ reflects our relationship with Christ.

Confession 4-27-2019

The Discipline of Confession is necessarily a popular practice of the Christian faith. While some may feel that confession is a sign of weakness, Foster points out that, confession “is a means of healing and transforming the inner spirit.”  .                                                                                   Pastor Nate Elias
