Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Sitting over breakfast at our hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine, my wife and I enjoyed the views of the Atlantic Ocean dotted with boats.  The week had been just about perfect in every possible way.  We had eaten great food, enjoyed fantastic weather without bugs and had been able to hike...

Meeting People

Posted by Reagan Sims on

As our church has spent the past several weeks contemplating what it means to live a life on mission, God began to challenge me on my habits. In particular, He has been working on me to take some first, small steps in that life, the step of truly noticing people. So, I am a coffee guy. Let me...

Choose

Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Monday Mourning

Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Another lovely day of rest has been shattered by tragic news. The most recent shootings (pause)… “most recent”- it is loathsome that we need such qualifiers- took place in Orlando. Reportedly, 49 people have died and numerous others have been injured in a clear act of...
