Finding Purpose in Life

It's gardening season right now. How many of you like to garden? You love to dig in the dirt and plant flowers or vegetables? I admire you because I am not a gardener. Cut grass. I can do that. But gardening, that's Jennifer's sweet spot.

Going Public

This morning we continue our series called What If. And the goal of the series is simple. It's to turn What If into What Is. As a church, we want to live out what we believe to be true. We want to become more than believers in Jesus. We want to become disciples of Jesus.

You Are Loved

On Monday afternoons a number of us have been going over to Shannondell to pray with those in the Rehab Center. We were invited by the Activities Director after we went Christmas caroling there back in December. And it's been an absolute blast! If you'd like to join us, just let me know.

The Garden: The Upside Down Kingdom

The moon was full and the sky was dark. The moon is always full on Passover, the first full moon after the vernal equinox.

Invite: Don’t Miss the Party

Did you hear the story about the late inauguration invitations? Apparently, a bunch of people received their invitations to the Presidential Inauguration two months late.

The First Church of Me

There’s a very popular concept in America today when it comes to church. I know I’ve experienced it and I’m sure you have too. And the concept is simple. The church exists for me and my needs. And if the church is meeting my needs then I’m in.

What Matters Most to Jesus?

I want to start this morning with a little name game, a game of association. What do you think about when you hear these names? In a word or a phrase.

Steve Jobs.

Mother Teresa.

Orville Redenbacher.

Susan G. Komen.

Bill Gates.

Tom Brady.

Financial Fitness

Every year at this time the parking lot at the YMCA, where I swim, is packed out. It’s hard to find a parking place. The lot is filled with people that the Y sometimes refers to as “resolutionists,” not revolutionists, but “resolutionists.”

My God, My God, Why?

When I was in seminary a missionary in Colombia, South America, was kidnapped by guerrilla forces. His name was Chet Bitterman. Immediately word went out around the world to pray for Chet Bitterman's release.

Why God Says No

This morning we continue our series called Teach Us to Pray with a look at unanswered prayer. In fact, I've titled it Why God Says No. Unanswered prayer is a problem for many of us.

Prayer Brings Peace

Today Valley View joins 500,000 churches in over 100 countries in the largest one-day prayer event of its kind. Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.

Two-Way Prayer

Jennifer and I are in the midst of wedding season right now. That's right. It seems like more and more couples are getting married in the fall. It's a beautiful time of year.

How to Pray

“Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. Guide me through the long, dark night and wake me with the morning light. Bless mommy and daddy, grand mom and grand pop, Kenny and everybody in the whole world. In Jesus name. Amen.”
