"But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil." Hebrews 5:14

Each year on children's birthdays, many parents measure how much they've grown in the past year.  It is something we are always excited to see how much they had grown!

The same should be true for us a followers of Jesus.  Matt Grant, executive director of PHOC (Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp) leads us through a teaching on the importance of solid food and how we can approach the new year as an opportunity for personal and corporate growth. 

Because followers of Jesus got to move beyond the basics of the Christian faith and grow up in Christ.

God with Us - Always - Week 4

December 23, 2018

It's CHRISTmas time!  In the Christian calendar we call this the season of Advent.  We who practice the celebration of Advent, do so because we are looking forward to something... according to Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
The Celebration of Advent is possible only to those who are troubled in soul, who know themselves to be poor and imperfect, and who look forward to something greater to come.  

The journey to CHRISTmas is about knowing with clarity that God is with us in every moment.   Through our pain. God is with us.  He is with us in the waiting. God's being ever present gives us courage when we feel anxious and the storm swells.

In this Fourth Sunday of Advent , we light the candle of Joy.  It's a simple message as we look at the scriptures that speak to this amazing truth: the Incarnation.  All that we believe hangs on this truth...God with Us.    

The Hope of CHRISTmas is made real when we look at how those around us enter into a deeper faith.  One person, young Tyler Trent, from Purdue, who is struggling with terminal cancer offers his testimony: God is with Us.
