A Local School Relationship

It’s amazing to watch our dinner group members support one another, but also to see groups that work together to support the community. That’s what happened last Monday, when a dozen volunteers helped dismantle old chalkboards at the local Mustard Seed School.

Bring Your Phone

It’s a perplexing problem – just what are you supposed to do with your hands during church? Twiddle your thumbs? Shred a napkin quietly in your lap? Hold the hand of your significant other, and squeeze it meaningfully everytime the message really speaks to their issues? How about take out your smartphone and follow along? That’s right, we want you […]

Baptism: Another Step Forward

Months before Marcie stood on stage to take the step of baptism and declare that she would follow Jesus anywhere, she sensed a small but growing voice leading her there. At first it was a occasional whisper, she explained. And then it was an overwhelming desire in her heart. It started when she joined a dinner group at the beginning […]

That Fear Can Show You the Most Beauty

New York is not a city that believes in personal space – physical or mental. We stand nose to nose with total strangers on the subway, and continuously feed our minds an endless stream of news, emails and tweets. We’ve adapted to it, but for many of us, this noise and crush has become so familiar that we feel lost […]
