Weekly Letter From Our Pastor

Sunday Church
Core Values: Honor
     Every Sunday morning I look forward to seeing this little guy. The minute the car door's unlocked he's always first out and first to the church entrance so he can hold the door open for the rest of his family. I love it! In this small but consistent gesture of service he honors the members of his family.  
     Honor - a topic Jesus spoke to on more than one occasion. The gospel writer Matthew recorded these words of our Lord, spoken to the church leaders of the day. A group of folks whose honor and actions weren't necessarily congruent.  
     These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.
     Apparently we weren't the first people to struggle with honor.
     Every so often in the coming months we'll be turning our attention to a core value; an essential element of character the bible lifts up and invites us to embody as followers of Jesus. This weekend we kick off with the first installment - Core Values: Honesty.

Living for Jesus!

Chicken Coop Church - Update
This weekend CCC celebrates yet another monster milestone. Our little brother, Jakobe Johnson is welcomed into God's family through the holy action of water and word; what we call baptism. And the cool part for you, our parent church? You're hosting! Living Water - see you Sunday morning! Jesus loves you!  -Pastor Peter
JAM (Jesus And Me) 
Little Jammers (3year olds-4K) - Mrs. Larson
Middle Jammers (K-1) - Mrs. Fiamoncini
Big Jammers (2-4) - Mrs. Emerson
Ash Wednesday - February 14th
This coming Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent: the 6-week journey the entire Christian church takes each year in the closing days of winter. It's hugely important in terms of preparing our hearts for the celebration of Easter by walking with Jesus on his painful but life-giving, hope-filling journey to the cross of Good Friday.
Grab the whole family, invite a friend, and join us each week for a simple soup & sandwich supper from 5:30-6:30, followed by the brief mid-week worship from 6:30 to 7pm.
See you on Wednesday!
