Sunday, Jan. 21: Like to fish? Fish for people!

by Trina Kleist

God calls you to fish – or sing – or whatever you do! If you like to fish, God has a job for you. If you drive heavy equipment for a construction contractor, God has a job for you, too. If you train dogs, or sling burgers, or bag groceries, or repair computers, or create […]

God calls you to see for yourself! Come and see for yourself what God can do for you and for the world! A new heart, a new vision, a new life all are possible when you have God on your side. But it’s hard for people to accept that. “Why should I believe in something […]

Sunday, Feb. 19: Love who??!!

by Trina Kleist

Nope, can’t love my enemies, Jesus! Jesus asks us to love each other. “OK, I can do that.” Then he asks us to love our enemies. We have to pray for people who hate us and are mean to us. “Whoa, now, Jesus!  Haven’t you gone too far with that faith business?” Now we’re getting […]

God’s love & healing shine in the darkness! When Jesus starts out his ministry, he settles for a time in the lakeside village of Capernaum, by the Sea of Galilee.

Sunday, Jan. 15: Jesus for outsiders!

by Trina Kleist

God calls outsiders – even you! Our God loves outsiders. People who don’t fit in, who don’t belong. And that’s why you have been a part of His plan all along. Here’s how it works: God made a special promise with this guy Abraham. He would be God to Abraham and his descendants, and they […]

Sunday, Jan. 8: Making Jesus known to all!
