The Tie That Binds

On any given Sunday morning at our church, you will find.

Great music.

Teens participating in the service in a variety of ways.  Yesterday, Dan used a few of them in a skit as part of his sermon.
You'll find babies crawling around on the floor and toddlers and preschoolers running around.


Old and young get along and enjoy each other.

You'll find tears and laughter.

It's a place where we pray.

And play.

Where one's gifts are developed and utilized.

God's word is taught, discussed, and wrestled with.

It's a place where all are loved and accepted.  

It's unique.

It's wonderful.
It's NOT perfect.  We have misunderstandings and bad days and irritations and weaknesses.

But we work through it, deal with each other, and forgive!

It is, I believe, the way God intended for His body to be.


It's family.

We have one tie that binds us together.  The bond of Christ and it is awesome!
