Our village and His Kingdom

Our Village in His Kingdom
Col 1.19 God’s Will for His creation, us, everything, is resolved and dwelling in His Son Jesus

Our church began in 1916, in the midst of village and its mill. Our bell rung out to sound the call to worship and its echoes reminded the people of the gospel. God has preserved us for 98 years. We are called to serve in His kingdom today, just as Paul served in his time. The kingdom is not just a future glorious hope – it is before us today. The kingdom is not just a spiritual kingdom inside of us. Jesus healed real people who were blind, lame, and stricken. We are called to our world today. What we do here and now matters – our service is in the service of our village and His Kingdom.

We are to be the feet to carry the gospel, we are to be the lips that speak comfort and truth, we are to be the hands of compassion – in our time, in our village, where He has placed us in His Kingdom!

Looking for the Messiah

Each year, we struggle to make sense of Christmas. To “do it right” – that is to say, to ensure its real and authentic. As opposed to superficial and commercialized. And, for Christians who see that the world around us does not necessarily share our beliefs, we feel a burden to ensure we don’t get…
