A Call to Fast & Pray

Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Beginning tonight after dinner, I would like to ask our church to fast and pray together.  There is deep hurt, sadness and anger in our country, and now is the time to come together as a church in the Spirit of Christ.  This fast can take different forms depending on your age and...

The Best of US... and the Worst

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...

Grieving With Family

Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Like many of you, the news from Charleston this week has turned my stomach.  While every murder is a tragedy, this story is certainly sitting differently.  The idea that an evil, racist man would sit through a prayer meeting and then callously gun down God’s...
