One day an angry newspaper subscriber stormed into his newspaper’s office and demanded an apology because he had been mistakenly put in the obituaries. He was very upset. He was promptly directed to the reporter and editor for that department and the man immediately delivered his rage. But the editor…
Our first Scripture lesson this morning comes for Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 : For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and…
What Change Does
Earlier this year I started on a 3-year journey with other pastors in Indiana about Nehemiah training & support - Nehemiah was an agent of change at the end of the Babylonian exile - Jewish people to go home and rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple The pandemic certainly has brought change upon us - unprecedented…
As the new year comes to the people of Renew, what does it mean to us? Is the New Year just another year? Or do we look forward to God doing a new work in our hearts, and in the hearts of those around us? And why is the idea of "new" such a big part of Christianity, anyway? Are we just consumers in disguise, or is there some deeper reason? Let's dig a little and figure this out!
End of year 2019
What has 2019 been like for you? How about this past decade? For most of us, it has been a mixed bag. Some highs, some lows. I always think of Paul’s philosophy of life as outlined in Phil 3.12-14 12 Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take…
Preparing For Something New
Play Video - “Whatever” This year is a new year and we need to focus on what can I do for God to change the world around me. How do I do that? How do I not let the past determine who I am going to be in Christ. If you have your Bibles, I want us to look at what the Apostle Paul told us. It is found in…
The Gift of Atonement
Introduction There was a Bible Tract that I used to love to use called “Steps to Peace with God” it used this illustration to describe the reconciliation with God that was really good. That is what we are talking about this morning. How God took the initiative, through the sacrifice of Christ, to get…
Many people are unwilling to experience the new things God is trying to do in their lives because of the baggage that keeps them longing for the past. When we wonder, "what if" or "if only," we rob ourselves of the fresh work of God within us that can take us places we cannot imagine.

“Put on then” We need to lay some ground work. This describes the depth of change that we should experience as Christians. It is dependent on you first accomplishing the instructions (by the power of the Holy Spirit) to put to other qualities to death in you. But you don’t stop there Your life in Christ…

God is a God who delights in doing new things. Even with broken, old people, God can do new things. Be refreshed and encouraged as Pastor Dave brings this message from Isaiah.
The God Who... (Isaiah 40-55)
We live in a world obsessed with novelty. We think that we can escape the 'same old-same old' with new things, or a 'new you'. The problem is, we never really change. In Isaiah 42, we're introduced to the LORD's new servant, who succeeds where the old one failed. And through this servant, the LORD will do amazing new things for his people.
It's a new year, and it may better, or worse, than last year. What we do know, however, is that one day God will make all things new. This perspective will help us to face the new year with peace, joy and hope.

This week, as the holidays come to a close, we'll be finishing up those leftovers. Turkey or stuffing with cranberry sauce and mayo on a dinner roll; almost as delicious as Christmas dinner! But as good as leftovers are, they're never as good as the real thing! 2017 was an amazing year and we should savour the memories. But let's not savour the past so much, that we forget to embrace the New Year. Let's prepare for the next celebration!
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord , “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the Lord , and besides me there is no savior. I declared and saved and proclaimed, when there…
By The Will of God, A Study Through Ephesians
I know we have had a theme of sorts about growing up. We spoke a couple weeks ago about wanting out from under our parents control and how that helps us to grow up. Last week we talked about Adulting and how responsibility and the demands of the world help us to step into our calling and become more…
