Dear Friends,

What makes you feel alive? What were the times you felt most alive? Were you on a winning team as a kid, on a roller coaster ride, skydiving, or was it the day you got married or had your first child? All these could be moments full of new life. How about when you accepted a new life in Christ or shared your faith story with others?


Some of the moments I felt most alive were the times when I was part of something much bigger than me; a team sport victory that overcame all odds, and more recently at my son's wedding where I watched a human being that I helped create, find love and start a family of his own. I also remember a time when I was in Belize working with sixty friends, serving together to love those who had extremely little. I find that I most often feel alive when I begin to participate in a story that is bigger than my own.


God has created this world so that His creation can create as well. Think about that. God has called us into a grand story that changes lives. His story heals homes, creates new life, brings forgiveness, and makes dead things come alive. Join us this Sunday as we continue our journey through James and find a faith that not only calls us to a deeper story, but a Faith That Works and changes stories. We are called to work alongside God who is willing to use us, His people, to tell His story to a broken and hurting world. And the coolest part is that we get to play a part of His redemptive story.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Chad
