Reach Women

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Over the past few years, we have been seeking to bring all of our ministries, including our women’s ministry, into alignment with our mission to “live to reach all people with Nothing But Jesus”. In Paul’s letter to Titus, Paul instructs that the women of the church are...

Fourth and One

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

On Sunday, December 10th, 1995, my Dad, who is the Pastor Emeritus of Reach Church, preached on...something. On the same Lord's Day, I led worship from the piano, and I am sure we sang good songs. Which ones? I couldn't tell you. But what I do remember about that Sunday is that we were offered...

Jesus Isn’t Really Enough

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Last Sunday, I said that the greatest problem plaguing the American Church is that we fail to specifically identify Jesus as the “Lord God” of the Bible. Jesus has been replaced with a “Vague God”. Vague God religiosity seems like a “serious” Christianity...

Taking Root In Our Lives

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Jesus said, “Don’t worry about tomorrow”.  How freeing.  Jesus, describing himself in the Sermon on on the Mount, focused on the “now”, the present, that ever moving thin and fleeting line, by considering...beauty...the flowers of the field, that he...

Are you “All In”?

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

On Sunday June 24th, we will begin a new sermon series, at both of our campuses, called, “All In”. This series will be rooted in the events of the reign of the fourth king of Judah, who was a man named Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles 17-22). He was “All In”. Or was he really?...

Father's Day

Posted by Steve Coward on

This Sunday is, of course, Father’s Day. For many, this is a wonderful day spent with their fathers. For others, this is a difficult day because it is a reminder that our fathers are no longer with us. For some, it is a reminder of how blessed they are to have their dad, while others are...

Vague God Bondage

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

I am more and more bothered by what I call the “Vague God” approach to life that so many Christians have adopted. It is an approach that we are all tempted to adopt every day of our lives...I am the chief of sinners in this department. There is nothing inherently wrong, per se, with...
