Our Vision: “Know Christ, Live Christ, Share Christ”

The people of our church have a vision! We have a vision that begins with the faithfulness of those who have preceded us. We have a vision that emerges from our desire to be inspired and effective followers of Jesus Christ. We have a vision that grows in our hearts as we commit to serve him together.

Bible Study

Our church has a wonderful Bible Study group that generally meets every 4th Tuesday of the month from fall through spring.
We are a very friendly and somewhat informal group of folks that just love to get together to read and learn from God's word.
We would be so pleased if you would join us to share thoughts, questions, and insights concerning the teachings of our Lord.

Matthew 4:18-22
As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea--for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

"Immediately". Just think about that. Are there things that you do immediately? Step on the brakes while driving? Drop everything to help a crying baby? Answer the phone? Jump when the boss calls? Most of the time, though, we are slow and deliberate; rarely impulsive or thoughtless about what we do. What part of your faith and commitment to Jesus is immediate?

Come worship with us on Sunday at 9:45 AM.

Matthew 4:18-22
As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea--for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

The focus is on the first sentence: "As Jesus walked by, he saw ...". In the story he sees fisherman laboring with their nets. He sees something in them that he will be needing. In the same way that they are good at catching fish, they could very good at catching people! But not exactly "catching", more like engaging with them, inspiring them, helping them ... all the ways that disciples bring the love of God to life!

Now shift the focus. If Jesus walked by ... you, what would he see? What do you have that he needs? It's not just what you are; it's what you are becoming. He sees it. Do you?

We'll help you see what Jesus sees! Join us on Sunday at 9:45 AM.

John 1:29-42

Jesus turns to two of the potential disciples and asks them, "What are you looking for?". In pondering this text a good place to begin is to think about what it is that YOU are looking for in life?

Later in January and February we will be reading from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mountain in worship each week. Here are a few challenging questions to help you prepare.

1. Where is the Sermon found in the Bible?
[a] Matthew [b] Mark [c] Luke [d] John [e] Revelation

2. The Sermon covers how many chapters in the book?
[a] One [b] Two [c] Three [d] Four [e] No one really knows

3. Is the location of the “mount” known?
[a] Information about location is not given in Scripture
[b] By tradition it is identified Mount Eremos in Galilee
[c] Most likely Mount Calvary, across the valley from Jerusalem
[d] Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Law from God

4. The Sermon is found with a different name in another Bible book:
[a] Sermon to the Pharisees [b] Sermon to the Galileans
[c] Sermon on the Plain [d] Sermon to Women

Answers: 1-a, 2-c (Matthew 5,6,7 and verse 1 of Matthew 8), 3-a&b (though the Sermon may be meant to parallel Moses on Mt. Sinai), 4-c (In Luke 6:17-49, much shorter than Matthew’s version)

Isaiah 42:1-9

Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations.
He will not cry or lift up his voice,
or make it heard in the street;
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a dimly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.
He will not grow faint or be crushed
until he has established justice in the earth;
and the coastlands wait for his teaching.

The Bible readings for worship in January and February have two themes: the invitation to discipleship, and guidance for disciples who have joined. All of these stories have an element of unexpected surprise. Is there anything you find surprising in the reading from Isaiah? So, when you visit our church do you come to have your view of the world confirmed, or do you come hoping to be surprised?
