This is a series will focus on meaning and mission the Church of Jesus Christ has on earth. The term Babylon is synonymous with a “pagan” culture, or non-Christian territory. Babylon in the O.T. was considered the enemy, the people who defeated the Israelites and made them exiles in a strange and foreign land that was not their home. In the same way, Christian believers who desire to live as children of God are feeling the effects of living in a changing post-Christian, even anti-Christian America. How can the church be the Church of Jesus Christ in these changing times? What does it mean to be in the world but not of the world. How are Christians to live distinctly as followers of Jesus Christ? Peter writes, Dear friends, I urge you as strangers and temporary residents to abstain from fleshly desires that war against you. (1 Peter 2:11 HSB). In this 8-week summer series, we will be focusing on the challenges Christians are facing while living in modern day Babylon.

Horrific accidents. Earthquakes. Flooding of epic proportions. Bigger, stronger larger hurricanes, tornadoes and typhoons. At some point in the last year have you asked the question “What is up with this world?”
As Christians, we should be intentional as we strive to grow in love and generosity...in every way! Why? Because This most generous God...is more than extravagant with us.
Kids are a blessing! There are days when parenting seems easy, but on other days, parenting leaves us looking for answers. Unfortunately, kids don’t come with instructions.
