Merry Christmas Reach Church and all who are visiting with us! We love you and are so glad you are hear!  When it comes to gift-giving, a common family tradition is to unveil a "Big Gift". This "Big Gift" is usually the most significant gift of the year. One year, Melanie and I gave our...

Our First Love

This Sunday, we are starting a new sermon series that I have entitled “First Love”. It is possible for us to be good at discerning truth, at sharing our faith with others, at being patient even in suffering, at fighting evil..and to still be very far from God.  It is...

Thanksgiving and Gratitude

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

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
