Did you know that being in a Growth Group gives you an opportunity to make a difference? Nathan and Katie Lindsey have been involved in Growth Groups for several years.

Thriving in Babylon

by Elliot Edwards

Like many of you, I have been doing the Thriving in Babylon daily devotions this week. Something that has challenged me is how Daniel was respectful and obedient to those he served under. As a result of this devotion, I decided to gather some facts on Daniel’s life. Did you know that Daniel served in […]

What did you do this weekend?

by Elliot Edwards

This past Sunday Bevan spoke to us about going and telling others about God’s grace. Something he explained is how there is a “words barrier” we have to get past if we are going to tell others about God. Getting through this barrier has always been a challenge for me. I want to share, but […]

To Greet or Not to Greet?

by Elliot Edwards

You may have noticed something missing during the worship service this past Sunday. When I was doing announcements, I didn’t ask you to greet those around you.

This has happened before. It actually happens fairly often. I train hard for months to prepare for a race and then just a few days before the race I start to lose motivation. The last time this happened was over the summer. About two weeks before the race I started to feel worn out and […]

Christmas Music

by Elliot Edwards

I am not a big fan of Christmas music. Am I allowed to say that? It is not my favorite music, but I guess I can live with it for one month a year. This past weekend, my wife decided it was time to turn on the Christmas music. I voiced my objection but it […]

Passing Out At Kickball

by Elliot Edwards

As an adult, it can be tough to get your competitive fix. A few years ago, I found my competitive outlet in the form of an adult co-ed kickball league. I know the sport is most often played in grade-school during recess, but I found that it is still really fun to play as an […]

“…The Realization of a Dream-Life…”

by Elliot Edwards

One of my good friends is living in Asia. He moved there after college to work with a group of people who have never heard the good news of Jesus. When he was still in school, he started to get the strong sense that God was leading him overseas. He knew that his obedience to […]
