Letters from Pastor Chuck

One Year

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Sunday is the one year anniversary of our new name, Reach Church! When Jesus appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus he called him by his name, "Saul". Unlike what you have heard countless times, Jesus never changed Saul's name to Paul. Even after Saul's conversion in Acts 9, he was still...

United

Why Nothing But Jesus? Does that sentence even work grammatically?Not really…And that is good! It is good that Nothing But Jesus is jarring and grammatically awkward at times. In fact... Nothing But Jesus should become its own, new, made up word! How do you make three words into one?...

See You Tomorrow!

Since I began leading worship at the age of 14, I have usually looked forward to every Sunday, as if that specific Sunday would be the greatest worship experience in history. So I have learned to be careful when it comes to building up a specific Sunday...or I would build up EVERY Sunday! I love...

Welcome, Tri-State Christian Academy!

It is with great joy that I am writing to announce the addition of Tri-State Christian Academy (TSCA) to Reach Christian Schools and welcome them to our Christian school community. The school board of TSCA contacted us a few months ago, and we started talking about the possibility of...

Join Us Sunday!

This Sunday morning, we will be diving further into Romans chapter 12.  Up until this chapter, Paul has spent an abundance of time making sure that we one hundred percent understand the gospel.  In the beginning of Romans, we heard about how sinful all are, how we are all in the same...

What Could Your Life Be?

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

We have said that the book of Romans can be divided into three sections: Romans 1-3 is the diagnosis, Romans 4-11 is the deliverer, and Romans 12-16 is the description. The diagnosis in Romans 1-3 is that all are sinners, there is no one who is righteous, that those outside the church and, yes...

To God ALONE

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

This week, we come to a significant passage in the book of Romans - the doxology of Romans 11. Before delving into the applications of the gospel in Romans 12, Paul takes a moment to simply respond in awe to what God has revealed in the first 11 chapters: “Oh, the depth of the riches and...

Preach the Gospel to Yourself Every Day

Posted by Steve Coward on

I hope you all have continued to enjoy our journey through Romans.  Personally it has been so good to be reminded so clearly of the good news of the gospel; the good news that we are saved by Nothing But Jesus.  My prayer is that you to have been reminded of this central truth. In...

Passion & Zeal

Posted by Peter Lammé on

What is the role of passion and zeal in the Christian life? Passion and zeal can be beautiful things. They drive to keep running forward—to persevere—to endure. But just because we are zealously running doesn’t mean that we are running in the right direction. Where has your...

Exciting Times!

Since I became the Senior Pastor of Reach Church in 2014 we have been slowly building a culture centered on Nothing But Jesus. The launching of Reach Church does not mean that the past was negative, but that God has been doing something new. In the few years before I became the Senior...
