True Stories

~ We welcome back to the pulpit Andy Wahlstrom.

I like stories. I really enjoy a good story. Stories can be very entertaining. They can take us to a place that we’ve never been or transport us to another time period. We can learn about history or just


Take One For The Team

~ We welcome Sam Hamstra, Jr. to bring us the message today.
Indiana folk, who have been blessed with many great college basketball teams, may not have gotten too pumped up the Loyola Ramblers run to the Final Four, but Chicagoans like myself sure did. We haven’t had a nationally rank men’s college basketball team in decades. So when Sister Jean and the Ramblers caught fire, I was there each step of the way, all the way to San Antonio.
What amazed me about the Ramblers was the way they played the game. Some commented that they played the game the


The Freedom Of Forgiveness

Forgive… not because others deserve it. But because you do. Dan gave us 3 keys to freedom and 4 questions to ask ourselves in his message this past Sunday.

Why Does It Matter?

~ Pastor Barry brings us our Easter Sunday message.
A yearly holiday that ushers in bunnies, easter eggs, new fashions and spring. Weeks before Easter Sunday we witness retailers preparing for big Easter sales, after all, everyone loves spring, bright colors and new fashions. But for followers of Christ, Easter means Christ no longer remains in the tomb but is risen. An empty tomb, that’s what Easter is all about.

When God Cries Out

~ We welcome Mark Bonnes to bring us the message today.
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” is probably one of the most painful things Christ says from the cross. We often summarize the Christian faith as “Christ died for my sins” or “Christ took my sins upon the cross”. While that is easy for us to say, the reality is that


All Fore One

~ We welcome Andy Walstrom back to bring us the message today.
Quite a few years ago, I left the church and turned my back on God.  I had been raised in a good Christian home and attended church regularly.  Unfortunately, I observed a few things about the church I didn’t understand.  Occasionally there were visitors to the church and when those visitors looked different, or dressed different or spoke differently, some members would
