Pastor Ron Eckberg preaches the second week of a two-part message on worship. In just a few short words, “Come, let us worship and bow down”, God invites his children to come before His throne. But what exactly does that mean? How do we define “worship”? How do we prepare, participate, and respond to such a holy calling?

Pastor Ron Eckberg begins a two-week miniseries on the life of worship. “We are saved,” wrote A.W. Tozer, “to worship God.” As simple as that sounds worship is still something that the church struggles with and even divides over. This week, we gain a greater understanding of our ultimate calling.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg shares our Easter message. Last Easter we were unable to meet together. The following 12 months brought more than their share of disappointment, frustration, and division. This Easter we remember God’s restorative power. We see how our tears over our greatest sorrows and apparent defeats are turned into dances of joy by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg concludes our series, “Abide,” by looking at 1 John 3:1-10. Some decisions are difficult, others – like what socks we wear or what spoon we choose to eat with – are so ridiculously easy and so obvious that we barely even think about them. Over the past three weeks John has described what it means to abide …

Pastor Ron Eckberg teaches the next message in our series, “Abide.” In John 10:10 Jesus tells us that he came that we might “have life and have it abundantly.” What a wonderful promise! There is a catch, however, and it lies in the extent to which we abide in Him. The more we abide, the greater the blessings!

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues our series, “Abide,” as we read through the book of 1 John. Faith, like anything good, is hard work. And if we think of it only as a matter of our eternal state, it can be frustrating to work and feel like we have little to show for it. But when we remain in the Lord …

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg begins a new series in 1 John called, “Abide.” After spending the opening section of his letter telling the church about the difference between the light and dark, John begins to beg the believers to remain (or “abide”) in that light. How do we do this? John begins this instruction in 1 John 2:18-25.
