Let's Get Missional
on September 15th, 2021
A couple of years ago, someone asked me how many mission trips that I had experienced. I have not kept a mission trip log, but it is safe to say that it is definitely north of 50 mission trips. Since the mid-1990’s, I had sent the vast majority of my life in ministry with middle school, high school, and college students. Nothing culminates a semester or the summer like a mission trip! Everything from disaster relief, home repair, community outreach, ministry with kids, and everything in-between.
An iServe Story
on September 13th, 2021
On September 4th, a group of volunteers from Killearn UMC that included members of our youth group worked with some other volunteers to build a wheelchair ramp for Barney and Pat Chambley. You may have seen the news clip on WCTV or the photos on the church website or in the e-news. I want to share a little bit of the backstory to demonstrate the importance of what iServe does and to encourage participation so more can share in the joy that serving brings.
The Second Book
on September 9th, 2021
My disclaimer about running. . . I used to joke with my runner friends that I do my running 84 feet at a time - that is the length of a high school basketball court. I never played college basketball, because the court is 94 feet long and over my limit. If you are a passionate runner, God loves you and has a plan for your life, but I have no clue what your plan is.
Who Are You Becoming?
on September 7th, 2021
The most important thing in your life is not what you do. It is who you become. Consider that, honestly, for a moment. Do you believe that? Rather than “what’s next?” or “how do we make this better, bigger, stronger, faster?” what if we asked a different question? Who are you becoming?
Not Myself By Myself
on September 1st, 2021
Last Sunday, Pastor Mike was talking about the value of the horizontal fellowship that we experience together. Eugene Peterson put it this way, “There can be no maturity in the spiritual life, no obedience in following Jesus, no wholeness in the Christian life, apart from an immersion in, and embrace of, community. I am not myself by myself.” We cannot be a fully devoted follower of Jesus without the fellowship, the community known as the church.

On Sunday, we will be talking about how fellowship is so essential. It helps define what the church is really all about. The church is a community doing life together as we can grow into the people that God has called us to be. We will need this fellowship more than ever in the days ahead.
