Don’t get caught with your pants down!

Hey everyone,

Have you ever accidentally streaked in front of hundreds of people?

A friend of mine who played high school basketball told me a great story about a time when he accidentally streaked in front of hundreds of people. He was not normally one of the starting players, but someone had gotten injured and he was going to be in the starting lineup for the game. Read More

“Good morning, I love you!”

 

One of my closest friends lives far away from me, so one of the main ways we stay in touch is through the Marco Polo app. We send each other videos – some of them are short, silly, and fun, others are longer, heartfelt, and serious. In one of this past week’s videos, she shared how she’s been going into work (she’s a substitute teacher) intentional about saying, “Good morning, I love you!” to her co-workers; while walking the halls, telling students, “It’s great to see you today, I love you!”; as she passes by their custodial team, “Guys, thanks for all you do, I love you!” Now, if you know this friend of mine, none of this would come as a surprise to you. However, what stood out to me, was that she wrapped up the story saying, “The best part is, everyone is catching on! They’re even starting to beat me to it!!”

The Great Resignation and the Church

 

Hey everyone,

You would have to live in a cave to have not heard about “the Great Resignation” which refers to the 33 million Americans who have quit their jobs since the Spring of 2021. I just read an article today that suggested that instead of calling it the great resignation it should be called “the Great Reshuffle” because half of those who quit during this time made career changes.

How long do you need?

Hey everybody,

Have you ever gotten stuck in traffic and become super frazzled and then gotten home and you shout at your kids and kick your dog?

Okay, maybe you didn’t kick the dog, but you get what I’m saying. You get frazzled by a day of work or the commute and then the next thing in your day is negatively impacted because of it. Read More

Is this a stupid question?

Hey everybody,
I came to faith in high school and immediately felt as if God was leading me to become a “Christian marriage and family counselor.” I honestly didn’t even know if there was such a thing, I just knew I had a passion to help families stay together. My parents had gone to a marriage counselor and they still ended up divorced, but they didn’t go to a Christian counselor. So, my thought was, I bet the Bible has some ideas in it that would help families, like mine, survive.
Only one problem.

There’s a FREE meal in the app!

A Message from Pastor Jamey

Hey everybody,

If you are like me, you probably have a few restaurant apps on your phone. I just counted them…I have 8 different restaurant apps. I won’t list which ones I have, because I don’t want to be judged by you.  Read More

Disconnected or Connected…?

 

 

I was recently part of a spontaneous public survey that shocked me. When I thought about the results I was completely heartbroken.

Over the past few years, my wife and I have decided that we want to use every moment possible to make memories with our kids while they are still living in our home. We are not perfect at this by any means, so I don’t write that to make anyone feel guilty. It has just become a theme in our home that we are trying our best to accomplish. This past week my family (Jaimee, Addy, Mason, Emma, and myself) had a chance to make a memory.

Can you spare a square?

 

Hey everybody,

This Sunday we will continue our series “Empowered” where we are looking at the empowering ministry of the Holy Spirit.  Among other things, I will be talking about the similarities between the Global supply chain issues that have impacted everything from Chick-fil-a sauce to toilet paper and the effectiveness of the local church.  There IS a connection, join me this Sunday to find out what it is.

Last week I gave a challenge to the church.  If you missed the message, you can watch it here, I think it will be worth your time.  The challenge I gave seems simple enough.  Dedicate yourself to praying for 5 minutes per day.  5 uninterrupted minutes.  It’s harder than you think!
