So What Do I Do When I Mess Up?

We have been in a pretty big discussion this fall, haven’t we?  We are talking about what it truly could and should look like to live a life that is redeemed and forgiven.  This series is intentionally building each week, taking us to a place where we can answer some important questions.  Questions like, how do we live like we have been redeemed and forgiven? How do we take our freedom and apply it to life? How do . . . Read More »

Responding to COVID-19

Just a few days ago I went to the gym and was looking forward to my daughter’s Track and Field season starting.  Now we are encouraged to not even leave the house.  What happened?  It’s hard to catch up to the reality of it all.  If you watch the news, a sense of fear and worry can just overwhelm your heart. Scripture says, Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries . . . Read More »

We All Must Answer This Question

So last week was a pretty special weekend.  We started a new series and it’s a very important one on Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.  Then Sunday afternoon we headed to Messiah College for what is probably my favorite service that we do each year which is our baptism service.  It’s so meaningful to watch people make a public commitment to God, and for me it’s an amazing experience to listen to them share what God is doing in their . . .

What Could Be

Over the last few years we have taken the summer and studied a book of the Bible.  Quite frankly it’s something that I look forward to every year.  Over the past few years we have studied some of Paul’s letters, and James…and this year I was really gearing up to study 1st and 2nd Peter with you all.  I enjoy picking the scriptures apart like that…but that isn’t the direction we went this summer…instead we are jumping into . . .

Walking Upstream

Today we are going to talk about what it means to bring integrity into your relationships with others, so we are talking today about bringing God into our relationships or our dealings with people in this world. And I am just going to start by telling you something, that I know is true but wish at times that it wasn’t true and it’s this…the world, and the people of it really don’t like you standing as who you . . .

Who We Are In Our Marriage Matters

So last week Ken kicked off a brand new series that I am really excited about and I will tell you why.  It’s because what we are doing is taking all the God principles that we talk about here at MRC, and we are pulling them into our practical lives.  That is awesome!  Ken was introducing us to the idea last week of integrity…the idea that who we are matters.  This is very important, because our culture today . . .

The Magnitude of the Cross

You know here at MRC we stay focused on keeping things simple and introducing you to the magnitude of The Cross and I will just say it, I think we do a pretty good job of pointing to the Gospel message on a weekly basis.  We want to introduce you to the amazing gift that our Heavenly Father gave us through Jesus.  We want you to know it, and more than know it, we want you to feel . . .

“Where Is Your Faith?”

Ok, so we have been in a big series, that started all the way back in the beginning of the year and is coming to an end right here around Easter, and I think it has been absolutely awesome.  We’ve been looking at the things that really block us from this life and life to the full that Jesus came to provide us…you know the life I’ve been describing as a life with freedom, victory, and power.  It’s . . .
