Merry Christmas!

December 26th, 2022|

This year, following three candlelight services on the 23rd and the 24th of December, we offered “church at home” for New Life Church and anyone else who discovered our post.

Constant Change

December 8th, 2022|

Personal confession: I do not love change. Actually, I like to see things changed for the better, but once they are better, I like them to stay that way. I am a little bit change averse. Change is disruptive, creates uncertainty, and is a little bit stressful. Maybe even a lot stressful.

Yet we live in a culture of rapid change. We must be adaptable and flexible. Change is exciting. We are called to be agents of change, for the good. We want to change the world. We want to create change […]

The Arrival – Love (Heidi Messner)

December 6th, 2022|

Week two of Advent at New Life Church in Everett.
Heidi challenges us to rethink our ideas of love and to adopt a Biblical view of loving others.
I loved the testimony, the Advent candle lighting, communion, and the message.
