Although Christmas time makes most people generous, Christian generosity is a response, not a season. We were designed to be rich in good works by doing good, being generous, and being ready to share.

As we look to the future of our spiritual walk, we must be careful not to casually become devoted to the wrong things, or to things that don’t matter. Here is Pastor Brian’s opening message of the “Devoted” series; a call for the church to be devoted “To Gathering.”
In this message, Pastor Brian revisits what he shared with our church 19 years ago at the first anniversary Sunday. Based on the story of Abraham he discusses the characteristics of faith that shaped Abraham’s life, and how they should shape our church as we continue following the plans of God.
You may currently feel that God is slow in answering a prayer or showing you some direction. But such waiting isn’t simply something to be endured, it is part of God’s plan in order to stir something within you.
