~~John 20:1-18 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and…
What’s Going to Last? We’re all building something with our lives. By the way we use our time, our talent and our treasures, we are building a life—leaving a legacy. We’re tempted to build so that our lives look good now, but Paul warns us that there is a day coming when all we’ve done is going to go to the fire. This Sunday we’ll think about how we can build to get ready for that day.
Beyond Sunday-What Is Next?
Why are Youth Aimless and Hurting?
Between 40 and 50 percent of young people who graduate from high school with a strong faith stop going to church soon after reaching college. This means that about 80 percent of all college-age young people either leave a church and never go back or never went to church in any serious way to start with, says Chap Clark, a family, youth and culture specialist who spoke on Jan. 23 at the finale of the January Series.

Celebrating 10 Years on Superbowl Sunday
Hi 10 years ago this Sunday (also on Super Bowl Sunday) I preached my first sermon as the new lead pastor of Liferoads Church. We sent out a letter this week in the mail with some reflections on that milestone. If you haven't read it, Here is the electronic version of it. We also have some exciting news from our ministry partners in Uganda that we wanted to let you know about. You can read that news here. This Sunday is an…
How Palm Sunday Impacts You
How Palm Sunday Impacts You Today, I thought it would be good for us to revisit the events of the day when Palm Sunday originally occurred. And perhaps more importantly revisit the question, “How do the events of Palm Sunday impact you today?” Many of you could turn to your neighbor right now and in once sentence tell them what happened on Palm Sunday. Add another sentence and you could tell them why it has come to be called, “Palm Sunday.” But, perhaps…

Sermon Reflection Questions
Why are we so tempted to fear? How does the good news of Easter put fear to death? What is your biggest fear? How does surrendering your life to Jesus put that fear to death? Why is Easter a big de…
“What Does God Require?”
"What Does God Require?" Micah 6:1-8; 1Corinthians 1:18-31 Let us briefly look at Micah. Why briefly? Well, that is all we know about him. Just a little bit, a brief note. We know that he was one of the twelve minor prophets in the Old Testament. These are twelve short-winded prophets. Each prophets is only a few chapters long. We know that Micah was a contemporary of Hosea, Isaiah, and Amos and Micah said similar things that these prophets said. Like other seventh…
What's With the Bunny? Sunday at 8:30 & 10:00
Easter is this Sunday! (Could I have found a creepier picture of an Easter Bunny? Actually, yes I could.) We put an announcement about New Day's Easter service entitled "What's With The Bunny?" on Facebook. One person who I don't know commented on the post "Stop trying to ruin Easter Jesus, nobody likes you." Huh. Maybe that was a joke (?). Or maybe this person really thinks that in an environment of bunnies and candy, Jesus is kind of a buzz-kill. Jesus has…
