2015 Youth Retreat: UNITED

What is the purpose of Christian community? For many believers in today’s Church the Christian community barely shows up on the radar of life. Has God intended us for more? Is church more than a hyped up seminar we attend on the weekends? The truth is that Scripture explicitly defines a thriving community of believers that seems non-existent today. Our aim at this…

Recap: 7 Songs We Learned in 2011

As a church, one of the sweetest experiences we share is coming together corporately to worship our Savior together on Sundays. While much of the life of the body happens outside of Sunday morning, there is something special and unique about lifting our voices together in praise and song. In 2011 we sang many songs … some new and many old. We learned seven new songs…

Not What My Hands Have Done is a text written in 1861 by Horatius Bonar, “the prince of Scottish hymn writers”, who authored more than 600 different hymn texts.Karl Digerness has taken that old text and composed a new melody and added a refrain, focusing on the duel identity of believers…

Hail the Day

This Sunday night we will be teaching a new song called Hail the Day. It comes from the most recent album by Sovereign Grace entitled Risen, and is an adaptation of a hymn by Charles Wesley written in 1742 called Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise. We look forward to singing this song corporately as we study through the burial and resurrection of Jesus in our Sunday morning…

Annual Men’s Steakout

This event is structured to allow our men to bring guests and develop relationships with unsaved co-workers, neighbors and friends.There are multiple events, including golf chipping, trap shooting, free throws, field goal kicking, home…

Rock of Ages (When the Day Seems Long)

The most recent song we have taught is Rock of Ages (When the Day Seems Long) by Sandra McCracken. This hymn was written in 2005 but the lyrics feel much older than that. One of the most gripping portions says: Rock of Ages, when in want or rest, My desperate need for such a Savior I confess Pull these idols out from my heart embrace. Rock of Ages, I need your grace. We…
