Gospel of John

"In the beginning was the Word... He was in the beginning with God." Before it all began there was Jesus.  At the center of it all is Jesus.  The culmination will be in Jesus.  He is the Water, the Life, the Light, the Word.  There is so much more of Jesus yet to discover.  Are we moving closer to Him? 

As the invitation is frequently put forth in the gospel of John "come and see".  That's just what we invite you to do over these next few weeks as we journey through John's gospel.  Come and See.  Come and see Jesus.  Come and see the wonders He performed and desires to work in our world now.  Come and see the ONE who was, and is, and is to come. Come and see what it looks like when heaven and earth collide in God's great story. Come and see what God will do in and through your life. Come and See. 

National Day of Prayer

Prayer brings people together. Prayer builds bridges. Prayer reminds us that we are created in God's image and He desires for us to represent Him everywhere we go. Prayer brings unity. Join us May 3rd at 6:30pm, as we join our prayers with thousands of others that will be offered across the country that day.

Travel Destinations

People travel for various reasons. But, usually, they are looking for something they don't normally experience in everyday life.  In this 4-week series, called Travel Destinations, we will explore four coveted destinations that do not require tickets or planes, luggage or reservations. We will lean into awe, adventure, rest, and inspiration. And as we explore these destinations, we will learn about life and God, ourselves and others.  Join us on Sunday morning at 10:15 am. 

 

Launch Reflections

This last Sunday, at our Easter launch, when we ran out of seating in the sanctuary, and needed to bring in extra chairs, I laughed to myself.  It had been 45 years since extra chairs were needed on a Sunday morning.  Only funerals had filled the sanctuary since the 70’s. 

Nine months ago, who would have imagined running out of pew seating?  When our family moved to Pacific Grove to help re-plant Mayflower last June, we didn't know what to expect.  None of us did. 

And yet, every step of the way, we have seen the wonder of God at work among us.  Much more than filling a sanctuary one Easter Sunday.  We have seen hope born anew.  We have seen, like Ezekiel, in a dry bone-filled valley, life impossibly emerge.  He has heard our prayers and seen our risks.  He has proved himself faithful.

If next Sunday at 10:15 am only 20 of us show up to worship, let’s not forget what we have seen.  God is doing an amazing work among us.  He is transforming hearts, forming communities, raising up leaders, and drawing the distant to himself.  Our role is not (and has never been) to make Wellspring awesome.  Our role is (and ever will be) to live in awe of Him who leads.  The Spirit of God is on the move.  With a reckless love, He runs into the world and invites us to follow.

My friends, we are just scratching the surface of what God wants to do in this place.  God is going to do more than fill seats in a sanctuary.  Get ready.  It is coming.  He is here.  And that is all we need.
