Looking Back At Our Time At 301 Garden St

This past Sunday will always hold a special place in our hearts as we celebrated our last service at 301 Garden Street.

Graduation Sunday: Leaving the Old, Entering the New

Summer has always been synonymous with graduation for me. The beating hot sun, the locally famous commencement speakers, yearbook signings. Oh, and those huge signs parents put out in their front lawn that say “congratulations Luke and the class of 2022!” It seems that even when you don’t personally have a family member or close friend moving into the next […]

Just Friends

If you haven’t seen the movie, “Just Friends” it’s about a guy who grew up immediately placed in the friend zone by a girl that he was in love with or thought he was in love with (as much as you can be at 16). That’s only part of the movie but it’s the part that sticks out to me […]

Once that clock hits five o’clock, my wife and I jump to pick our daughter up from the babysitter just to have my wife head into her leader call […]

Build In The Good Times

A few weeks ago, I injured my ankle pretty badly and it rocked me. The timing was particularly terrible, not that injuries ever come at a good time. We had work in the new building, the Easter Egg Hunt and Easter all coming up.     I found myself filled with guilt for several reasons. First, it made life significantly harder […]

Sometimes inviting someone to church for the first time can feel intimidating. Other times we may find ourselves saying no for people, thinking they wouldn’t be interested or many times we […]

“Putting Off” Discontentment And “Putting On” Generosity

This past Sunday, Pastor Chris went through the passage in scripture, found in Ephesians, that underpins a practice we call “Put Off / Put On.” The practice recognizes that when we have an unhealthy behavior it is not enough to simply stop or “put off” that behavior. Instead, it’s equally important for us to replace them or “put on” healthy […]
