As I write this, our church’s Advent Devotional is being printed and assembled by Traci Brown (thank you, Traci!). This was a labor of love, and I am excited to present it to you. We had 22 members contribute reflections and Austin Becker, 9th grader, drew the artwork for the cover...

During our Sunday night adult study called “Breathe” we have looked at making room for Sabbath in our lives. Pricilla Shirer’s teaching is phenomenal and I have learned so much from this study. I know the people attending would say the same thing. This week, Pricilla told us a...

You’ve probably heard by now that I had the privilege to participate in the Fort Dodge version of Dancing with the Stars. You’ve probably also heard that I’m not a gifted dancer. I have to admit that during the repeated practice sessions, there were times when I asked myself...

This past Saturday, 10 couples from our church attended Fight Night in Ankeny. After a delicious dinner at HuHot, we gathered to hear Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott talk about marriage and how to fight well. Each of us learned tips on better communication. It was a fantastic evening...

As both our fall sermon series and our year-long series have begun, I’m reflecting on how both Sabbath and joy relate with one another. Do you end your day wishing you had accomplished more? Maybe you sometimes wonder what life would be like if you had eight days each week, or...
