Updated Mask Policy for Sundays

Updated Mask Policy for Sundays Since last July, we have taken several reasonable precautions to lessen the spread of COVID-19 on Sunday mornings. Among those precautions was requiring masks for the duration of our Sunday service. In light of Governor Abbott rescinding the previous mask order for Texas (which we have sought to honor), the elders have agreed to adj...

How Does the NT Use the OT?

We’ve all experienced it. Matthew 2:15 asserts that Jesus fulfills the prophet’s words. Then, flipping back to Hosea 11:1, we discover Israel coming out of Egypt. “How did Matthew get that?” we wonder. When comparing the historical, contextual meaning of an Old Testament verse with its appearance in a New Testament context, we often feel tension. How are the NT aut...

Preaching the Gospel to Yourself & Others (Part 1)

I want to explore how the gospel functions in the life of the church. No matter what the church faced, the apostles wove the gospel into the very fabric of the church’s life, ministries, and mission. The gospel never amounted to a “shelved” message for the church. It has ongoing significance....

The Gospel (Part 2)

The Gospel (Part 3)
