A different kind of church for Pentecost

This Sunday is Pentecost!  It is the day we celebrate the Birthday of the Church!  What a birthday it is as we worship from seperate locations via the blessing of technology. The church looks so different than even we remember it, but does that mean the church has really changed?  The church of Jesus Christ has never been about a building, but has always been about the people of God doing the work of the Kingdom of God. Every single day that work continues, whether its in a dedicated building or not.  Join us this Sunday as our very own Bishop Mike McKee brings us a message for this very different Pentecost.   Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live or Youtube Live.  See you Sunday!

Grace and Peace,

Finding Forgiveness

When we think about our past we can find great joy, but we can also find places we feel stuck.  Is there a time in your past you just can let go of?  This week at Ignite we are talking about the Power of Forgiveness.  We all have times and memories from our past that still bring us pain.  God offers us the ability to forgive those who have hurt us and in that forgiveness we can find freedom. That is one of the great promises of following Jesus.  Forgiveness is as much about our freedom as it is about helping those we forgive.  We will dig into this topic and pray for God’s help.  Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live.  See you Sunday!

What next?

Have you gone out since things have opened up?  I went out for coffee this week at FHGP and sat at one of their outside tables and I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do or not, but it sure was nice to get out of the house.  We are all asking ourselves lots of questions and how to live and proceed at this moment.  

As some things open and some things stay closed we are all making decisions about how to move forward so what are the qualities we need as we plan and think about living faithfully?  We will dig into this topic and think about how scripture may guide us.  Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live.  See you Sunday!

Faith in Quarantine

We have been under Quarantine now for a few weeks.  Things are starting to open up, but we are still asked to be careful and stay distant.  Some of us are choosing to stay quarantined for the help of others.  So how does all this impact our faith?  That is the question we will begin exploring over the next few weeks.  We will ask how our faith responds to these times and what qualities are essential for surviving this outbreak. 

This week we ask the question of how we love and grow in quarantine as we think about moms.  Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and it will be a special day as we look at the ways the love of mother’s prepare us for times like this and can help us know how to keep going  Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live.  See you Sunday!

He is Risen!

This is our last week of our worship series on Easter.  Even as we are quarantined at home there is so much we can learn from the story of our risen Savoir and the empty tomb.  We end this week as we listen to the story of the Ascension and Jesus’ last words to his followers.  They are a promise and a call. A call to share the story of Easter!  So how can we share that amazing, life changing story of Easter?

Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live to celebrate Easter and think about the ways Jesus changes our lives today..  See you Sunday!

Jesus Changes Lives…

A friend of mine likes to tell me, how do you know Jesus wasn’t a zombie or a vampire?  He ate fish!  Jesus ate fish by the sea shore with his disciples.  This week we continue our study of the Easter story when we remember how Jesus had to call the disciples away from fishing a second time!  What Jesus did should change our lives so much we can never go back.  

Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live to celebrate Easter and think about the ways Jesus changes our lives today..  See you Sunday!

Easter isn’t just one Sunday

The Easter story is the most important story we tell as Christians. In fact each Sunday that we gather we celebrate a mini-Easter!  Over the next few weeks we are going to spend longer on the scriptures after Jesus rose.  There is a powerful message of how God calls us and can use us that we will explore.  For the next 3 weeks we will keep celebrating Easter and the greatest story ever told.  

Join us this Sunday on Facebook Live to celebrate Easter and think about the ways God is on a walk to Emmaus with all of us.  See you Sunday!
