Create Space: Vision for Lebanon District

Bishop Dave
August 9, 2020

Bishop Dave continues to cast the vision of how we can MAKE ROOM for new people. In today’s hustle-bustle, overloaded with information, society gives little room for interruptions. Travel with us this Sunday as we watch Jesus ‘making room’ for important and overlooked people in His culture in Mark 5: 21-43. […]

Create Space: Beloved You Are Broken

Pastor Amanda
August 16, 2020

This week we return to our yearly theme—the Beloved—to see how our identity as children of God plays a role in our ability to create space for others. We are all broken, and yet we try very hard to hide this common thread that ties humanity together. […]

Create Space: Experience it First

Pastor Amanda
August 23, 2020

Most of us know why creating space for others is important, but we don’t always know how to practically do it in such a way that we don’t cause more harm than good.

September 13, 2020

We are right in the middle of our teaching series—CREATE SPACE. We can tend to think that walking away from someone, or letting them walk away from the truth, is a failure on our part and a missed opportunity on theirs. Yet, Jesus never took away a person’s choice or their ability to say no.

Create Space: Don’t Overwhelm

Myron Miller
September 20, 2020

Have you ever had an experience when you felt as if you just couldn’t bear to hear any more advice or recommendations from your well-meaning family or friends? It is in those times when I wish people would give just enough information, but not more than what I could handle …

Create Space: Uncover the Bad News

Pastor Amanda
September 27, 2020

Today we conclude our teaching series—Create Space—by uncovering Bad News in order that we may proclaim the Good News! Jesus was a master at exposing the lies (Bad News) people carried around with them, but He was just as skilled at proclaiming the truth (Good News) […]
