Just a Word

by davidprill1

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,     and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap;     he puts the deeps in storehouses. Psalm 33:6-7   I’ve been considering Psalm 33 in my own devotional life the last couple of days.  It […]

Jesus’ Plan

by davidprill1

“You saw these things happen—you are witnesses. You must tell people to change their hearts and lives. If they do this, their sins will be forgiven. You must start at Jerusalem and preach these things in my name to all nations.  Listen! My Father has promised you something; I will send it to you. But […]

Holy Week: What to expect

by davidprill1

Holy Week: What to expect Holy week is a very important week.  It’s the week that we walk through the story of Jesus’ last week of life.  The gospels are fast, fast, fast through the first 3 years of the life of Jesus.  And then – they slow down – to a crawl – with […]

Lent. What is it?

by davidprill1

Lent. I could fill your brain with all kinds of information about the word.  Where it originates and how it came to be such a big deal in the church. But you don’t really need to know all of that (at least in my opinion).  If you are curious make google your friend. In short, […]

Too Little

by davidprill1

“Open” Sermon Series

by davidprill1

What does it mean to live in a way that is open to God’s work in us, through us and for the world around us?  This series tries to consider that question as we journey through several Old Testament people (mostly prophets).  These people all responded in an open, willing and incredible way to what […]

Love Response

by davidprill1

My boys are funny and amazing.  It’s amazing how different they are.  And it’s amazing how funny some of their responses can be. For example: I might say (as I frequently do) “I love you” to each one and each one typically responds differently than the others. One typically responds like this: “I love you […]

A Prayer

by davidprill1

It’s really captivated my attention for the last two months.  I keep trying to think deeply about other things, keep wanting to teach on something else, keep trying to find new material but I can’t.  This prayer has captured my heart and my mind and I keep coming back to it.  The prayer is a […]

Resurrection has three primary ways of mass communications. Bulletin ENews Eblast As of October 1st, we will be changing the way that we send our eblast (and our prayer) communications. We will be using our church management software to send these communications. Our current list is quite long and we think it is a bit […]
