We know that worship is more than just music but what we want to talk about here is in fact, specifically, music. When we’re dealing with Wednesday night services and student [...]

What is Worship?

Today we’re going to be talking about the question, “What is worship?” To me, the go-to verse for this is Romans 12:1, which says, “Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters in view of God’s mercy, to offer your body as a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to God.

The Spiritual Discipline of Confession

Today we’re going to be talking about the spiritual discipline of confession. Before we dig into what confession is I really want us to look at what confession is not, or some misconceptions we have about confession. Confession is not primarily something we do for God. Second, sometimes we think it’s simply an accounting procedure. [...]

Budgeting and Calendaring

Today we are going to be looking at budgeting and calendaring. I want to primarily focus on calendaring because of how it impacts the budgeting process.
