  • What’s Your Problem….“What’s My Problem?” (10/18/2020) - This morning I invited us to think about our own short comings…. At a time when it is really easy to see the faults in others. We can be quick to label ‘others’ as a problem. We can never get past our bias if we are blind to it. Our scripture lesson was Matthew 15:19-28. The story of a Canaanite woman who like any parent wanted healing for her daughter. If you want to jump around in the service, we begin with our words of welcome, three minutes in we have our trio singing, ‘Pass it On’ and ‘Sanctuary’; at the eight minute mark Eloise Leighty reads our gospel lesson; the morning message begins at the 10 minute mark; 33 minutes in we have our collective prayer time and at 50 minutes we shared time of offering and a closing reflective video. We hope and pray that you’ll find this morning service meaningful and if you do we would love to have you share it on your own personal social media. Thanks, and have a wonderful and blessed day.    
  • The Path (10/11/2020) - We gathered to talk about the high calling, our high calling to follow the path to where we can bring the most healing and help. Often times that is not the easiest path.
  • Promises and Covenants (9/20/2020) - We had a great time this morning as we looked at promises.... in the Bible we sometimes use the word 'covenant.' Those who have said yes to Jesus, what does that mean? Those who have said yes, are we living into the fullness of what God is wanting to offer to us. God is faithful and will led us into a deep and abiding joy if we will follow 'Him.' We are blessed by those who watch our service here and if there is anything we can do for you please let us know. And we appreciate those of you who support this church and our ministry with your donations. Thanks. Pastor Kurt
  • Worship September 13th (9/13/2020) - Good day everyone...it is beautiful in Northern Illinois but we know out west they continue to battle the fires and our prayers are with them.
  • Peace in the Midst of the Storm (9/6/2020) - Today’s theme was centered around peace. Specifically, how do we reconcile personal peace and at the same time continue to be nagged about all of the injustice in the world. If you want to bounce around the service Gina starts it off with an introduction to our service, then our trio sing “Because He Lives” at the five-minute mark. At the eight-minute mark Craig and Denis read our morning scripture, 2 Corinthians 13:11-13 and Matthew 28:16-20. It’s time for a farewell address which both Paul and Jesus share.
