Letters from Pastor Chuck

It is FANTASTIC! 

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

This past Wednesday was Halloween. We have a ministry on the University of Delaware campus called Reach UD where 14 students live in a house Reach Church has rented. The goal is for us to develop relationships with these students and for these students to develop a love for the church. We also...

Vision

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

This Sunday, at our Summit Bridge Road Campus, we will be spending time engaging with our mission and vision in light of Isaiah 6. Even though we try to make every worship service and ministry about our mission, we also like to take time, periodically, to review where we are and where we are...

Get Plugged In!

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Sometimes it is difficult to get involved in a large church. Here are a few ways you can serve, make friends, and grow in your faith:  1. One of the best and EASIEST ways to make friends at Reach Church is to serve on our Connections Team. Even if you have only been attending Reach Church...

We Are Doing A New Thing!

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

The Psalmist describes worship as including many instruments, including "loud cymbals" (Psalm 150:1-6). Repetitive worship, which is inexplicably criticized by some Christians given the worship described in the Scriptures, is not vain worship as our God is worthy of repeated worship...

The 8th Promise

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

Many have said that the 8th commandment (thou shall not steal) is "open-ended." If you think about it, all of the commands on the "second tablet" (commandments 6-10) have to deal with stealing: murder is the stealing of life; adultery is the stealing of a spouse and marriage; false witness is...

Reach Women

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...

Overlooking Offenses

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

A couple of Sundays ago, I was discussing relationships in the context of the Ten Commandments and shared that embracing Proverbs 19:11 as a life verse will change your life. Proverbs 19:11 reads, "Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is to his glory to overlook an offense." Just imagine...

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

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Things are really going well at Reach Church! Those who are new to the church, and those who have been in the church a long time, have expressed that they are encouraged and challenged by Reach Church. Those in leadership, and those volunteering, simply put, are having a blast as we relentlessly...
