The Paradox of Easter : John 19:30 (March 31, 2024, 5:12 p.m. )

A paradox can be defined as a statement or situation that seems absurd or contradictory that when investigated might actually be found to be true. Easter is a paradox because it's both a memorial and a wedding. Through Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the cross, we gain access to our greatest relationship with God. Join us today for Easter online as pastor Jon Kragel discusses how the death of Christ leads to a resurrected life. Through our study of John 19:30, we learn the meaning behind Christ's final moments on the cross and how they still impact us today.

The Essential Church : Colossians 1:18 (March 10, 2022, 8:21 a.m. )

The early churches were defined not by walls, nor the denominations represented, nor the worship or stage. Rather, the churches were defined by the people. The church was and is a group of people with the common goals of glorifying God, edifying one another, and doing life together in community. In other words, it is not the building that makes up the church, it is the fellowship of believers and the unity in Christ that makes up the church.

It’s messy but utterly healthy. Those who live in it become free. ...And as they learn to receive love, they sin less.”
