A new kind of Advent…

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I hope you will take the time to see the many blessings around you, even right now in a hard year.  I hope you will find moments of thankfulness even in a holiday that will be very different. It will be a different day, but we know God is at work.  This coming Sunday we kick off the celebration of the Advent season. We will listen to the call of the prophets, and I am very excited that my very good friend Rev. David McMinn will be preaching.  He is the Campus Minister at the University of Texas Wesley Foundation.  I hope you will join us for both on a Sunday that promises to be a blessing.

This Sunday we return to online only worship due to the spike in COVID cases.  Join us Sunday at 11 am on both Facebook Live and Youtube Live.  

Grace and Peace,
Travis

Giving Thanks…

What a week it has been!  We planned on in person worship and then it all got changed.  We raced to catch up and then had major technical difficulties on Sunday.  Sometimes no matter how hard you work it can all be a mess!  That does make you thankful for the days everything runs smoothly.  This last Sunday we said goodbye to Gabe, but this Sunday we welcome our transition worship team of Ken and Kyle Murray!  This Sunday we celebrate Thanksgiving in these uncertain times.  We will also get to celebrates Morgans Baptism!  I hope you will join us for both on a Sunday that promises to be a blessing.

You can join us online or in person, but if you are in person you need to call ahead and help us get a headcount. Join us Sunday at 11 am on both Facebook Live and Youtube Live.

Change and Thanks

Change is everywhere!  With the election completed it looks like we are having more change.  This last Sunday we talked about how God uses change in our lives to change us and grow us.  This Sunday we continue to think about change and giving thanks.  We will listen to the story of Ruth and how God used change in her life to give her unexpected blessings.  Change can be hard especially when it is tragic, but God can use that change in amazing ways.  Join us Sunday as we listen to her story. 

You can join us online or in person, but if you are in person you need to call ahead and help us get a headcount. Join us Sunday at 11 am on both Facebook Live and Youtube Live.

Thank you Gabe!  We have been blesed to have Gabe and his family join our Ignite family for the past year.  He has recieved an amazing opportunity to serve a church full time that is much closer to Bridgeport.  We are so excited for all the ways God will use him, but we are sad to see him go.  Join us this Sunday as we play some of his favorite songs and pray for him and his family.

Change is Hard

Change is hard!  No one likes change, whether it’s something small like changing your schedule or something big like moving, change is something many people avoid.  This has been a year of constant change, so in this season of giving thanks how do we give thanks? The next three weeks we will be digging into people from the Bible to ask how they handled change. This Sunday we start by talking about Joseph.  He was sold into slavery and his whole world turned upside down.  Change as a constant in his life.  See you Sunday!

The final act…

For the last 5 weeks we have been talking about the politics of faith and what it means to use our power in the world.  We have talked about the history and laws in the Torah, the prophets, the names of Jesus, and the teachings of Jesus. All of these things culminate in the most political act in human history.  In the cruxcifixion Jesus forsake his power, became powerless so that we might see victory and so that we might have victory.  The crucifixion is so much more than just something that saves us from our sins, it is an act of political victory.  Join us to dig into this message on Sunday.
