Hawaiian Shirts and the Death of a Brother

On July 4th at about 8:15 a.m. our family received a call from my nephew that let us know that his father, and my brother, Mike, had passed away.  Independence Day.  In our American independence, we enjoy freedom bought for us by the sacrifices of others.  On July 4th, 2012, my brother celebrated true Independence Day, a day made possible by the death of the One, Jesus Christ.  On that day, Mike truly celebrated his independence from labor, hardship, struggle, sin…

School is IN!!

  One of the last duties that I did in the office this week before my Sabbatical officially begins is to wire the money that was raised for the Nepal Scholarship Fund.  Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia and was recently rated as one of the most difficult places to live in the world.  As I begin my Sabbatical, I am encouraged to see God’s faithfulness in providing for this ministry. Through our partnership with Kishwaukee Bible…

Secret Agents of Grace

It is often easy to not recognize the grace of God when it comes.  In fact, sometimes it comes to us and we miss it altogether.  I believe that at times it comes to us most powerfully when we are surprised by “Secret Agents”—people who serve and minister  completely for the joy of serving God and not for the praise or recognition of men.  One of the realities of what it means to be part of the people of God…

Fasting is the practice of laying aside something (generally food) to seek God through focused and devoted prayer.  We…

The Table Project

I have been getting some questions about “The Table” and how it will be used as a tool for us as God’s people here at Creekside.  True growth of any church, is in part, accomplished through the teaching of the Word of God.  Yet, that teaching isn’t meant to just be accomplished in our corporate meetings, but is to reverberate or ripple throughout the church community as the truth is spoken in the context of daily life.  Each and every…

Welcome to our New Website

Thank you for checking out our new website.  In many ways, the website of a church is the new front door where people check out what a church is all about before even showing up.  Our old website definitely needed some updating and I am excited about the launch of this one.  In addition to having all of the information that our old website had, you’ll see a radically updated look, new content (this blog for example), a better organized…
