Why Nothing But Jesus?

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

You don’t want to miss church this weekend! On Sunday, we will begin a brand new sermon series called God-Sized Conversations. In this series, we will attempt to answer questions, from a Nothing But Jesus perspective, that have been submitted by you and our guests over the past...

How are you?

Posted by Steve Coward on

How are you?  No, how are you really doing?  We get the question, "How are you?" all the time.  Most of us have a programmed response to it.  We don't even think about it.  We immediately respond with "I am fine.  How are you?" or something very similar.  If...

A Clean Slate

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

Happy New Year! I LOVE the idea of a New Year. It's a natural way to turn the page, have a fresh start, and get a "Clean Slate." As the year changes, we tend to feel better about our shortcomings from the previous year in the hope of a "better" New Year.  A "Clean Slate" is something...

Thanksgiving and Gratitude

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

Turkey, pies, football, and challenging relatives. It doesn't get any better than that. Thanksgiving is such an underrated holiday, isn't it? I mean, who came up with the idea of a holiday where you gorge yourself with food and then fall asleep on the couch? Pure genius. We should be giving...

For The Sake of The Gospel

Are you for the mission of Reach Church?  Are you for our mission of living to reach all people with Nothing But Jesus? That has been the question we have been asking over the last couple of weeks.  For many, the answer may be a quick and immediate "yes".  Others of you...
