Resetting Influence

Influence

We are beginning a sermon series entitled influencers. When I hear the word influencers I think of trend setters, people that society looks at to know what is the latest and greatest gadget etc. If I find a product I love, I shout it’s praises to the rooftops. If I eat at a delicious restaurant I give them a great review. If you think about it, we are all influencers to those around us…but what are we telling them about? How COVID has affected us

God’s Justice

Our nation has watched the televised trial of Derek Chauvin vs. George Floyd over the past 2 weeks. As I write this, the verdict is about to be read. 12 jurors spent just over 10 hours deciding the outcome.

Easter – Resurrection Sunday

Easter is Sunday, April 4. This is the day we set aside to celebrate the resurrection of our leader, Jesus Christ. Why is this holiday important? Why is it significant? And what makes it different than other holidays? The resurrection of Jesus from the grave is the most important event in Christianity. In the garden of Eden man sinned and had been condemned to death. Death had the final say. Death put an end to any life, any goodness, any future How COVID has affected us

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to take 16 of our 4th and 5th grade students on an overnight trip to Grand Rapids. Normally we go to Chicago for the  CIY Superstart! Conference. We didn’t get to go last year because of Covid and they cancelled the in person conference this year. Thankfully they did a virtual conference so we were able to still have it with some improvisations.  If anyone is wondering how this pandemic has changed How COVID has affected us
