Sexual assault and harassment is never okay. It’s heartbreaking (but sadly no longer surprising) that so many women have experienced this evil and injustice. As several women have noted, soon the #metoo hashtag will leave the headlines but the scars and sorrows of their abuse won’t leave in the same way....Keep Reading

Oh LORD God, I come to you with weak faith but not blind faith. You are the God who has provided parted seas, demolished walls, healing for the sick, life to the dead, and food for the sparrows. I believe you can also take care of me because you are Jehovah Jireh, the LORD who provides......

It was about 60 degrees on Sunday, October 6, 2013. The sun shone brightly over us, as the Son shone brightly among us. Here we are, 5 years later, still on the mission God called us to, and still experiencing God's goodness over his church. Each year we will celebrate God's faithfulness, from 5 until forever because God is El Olam, the Everlasting God! ...
Men, mark your calendars for September 7-9 to be in Lake Geneva, WI for the Men's retreat. We'll be encouraged, refined, and challenged as we live out God's calling over our lives as men. We refuse to be kept down by fear and failure even in the midst of defeat. At The Comeback, we'll learn to find our strength in God and lock arms as men to advance God's agenda in our homes, community, city, and world. ...
God, you are everlasting and your reign is timeless. You are Yahweh, the self-existent God of the universe. And just as the fire in the bush didn't need the bush to continue burning, you need nothing to sustain you. You are constant, never having to improve or grow because you are the I AM. I humbly come before you calling upon your name. Thank you for coming down to my level to rescue me through Jesus. Thank you that I belong to you. Help me to be mastered by nothing but you alone. Amen....
As a parent, you are the number one influence on your children in every area of their life. For many busy parents and stepparents, it is common to treat raising children and practicing your own faith as two separate parts of life, yet they can be beautifully intertwined....

At the TIDE Showcase, we are on a mission to provide a well of water in a community that is marked by spiritual famine. Jesus said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” This Friday, the students will display repairs they’ve done in our building, o...Keep Reading

Since being in Haiti, there have been a myriad of experiences that have taught me much about who God is and the mission he has called us to. One that cannot escape my mind was when I, for the first time, saw local fishermen manually catching fish at the beach. Instantly, I was reminded about the calling of some of Jesus’ disciples-fishermen who did the hard work I was wi...Keep Reading

He alone can satisfy the deepest longings of the human heart and supply us with lasting joy, forgiveness, and eternal hope. With him as the hope for humanity and the delight of the Church, we are faced with a historic day in our nation as it pertains t...Keep Reading
I was in Jr. High the first time my eyes saw pornography. In God’s grace, he’s rooted out the image from my mind but the scenario is still there. I wasn’t looking for it, but it found me. I was heading into my classroom at school when a classmate had a picture in his hand and literally put it right in front of my face and then ran off. One of the most sobering lesson...Keep Reading
On April 5 we will celebrate the glorious fact that Jesus is alive! If Jesus didn't raise from the dead, then our faith is in vain. "But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead," writes Paul, and because he lives, we want to tell the world around us about our great hope in Jesus. This Easter, we are having two Easter services at 9am and 11am to double our praise and s...Keep Reading
At The Brook, we are grateful for the many ways God used Martin Luther King, Jr. to advance racial equality through peaceful and yet sacrificial means. He was a courageous man who, among other things, cared deeply about something that God cares deeply about, Christ-Exalting Diversity. ...Keep Reading
