A local church member is part of the Church at large/global because of their local membership of the “branch” that is connected to its ultimate leader – Jesus Christ. Membership is required everywhere you go. The gym says “sure have a workout on us,” but your next trip to the gym will be to confirm and sign on the dotted line. You join. It will also cost you something. Joining an organization will cost you Time. Everything cost us time. It will also cost you Money. Everything cost us money. Faithfulness will be given and submitted by you to be a successful, beneficial member of the organization. Discipline is when a person personally accepts and implements all that the organization mission and purpose. The Church and its local expression are no different and much more serious. Eternal serious. Read More
Series in the Book of Proverbs
Making Space: Doing What Matters Most
Solomon. The name speaks without describing it. Even people who do not attend church know his name. Wisdom. This is the one-word description of his name. He asked God for it. He got it. Solomon father, David, was described as a “man after God’s own heart.” Solomon was awarded some items that his father did not receive. Namely—-Solomon was awarded as the builder of the first Temple of God. Even as a great contractor of the Lord, Solomon wrestled with some deep serious, mind-bending-perplexing concepts that would make the miserable more miserable. Solomon admitted that it was miserable in the Book of Ecclesiastes. Space in our hearts and minds is needed for wisdom. This new TCAA sermon series will explore Solomon’s breakthrough moments in God’s granting of wisdom “little” guiding-maxims that still penetrate the human heart and mind even this day. One could surmise that Solomon was “making space for what matters the most.” This came from his incredible rap sheet of bad choices that speak long after they are committed. The opposite of a bad choice is “wisdom.” We all need to “make space for what matters the most.” Time to make room. Read More

The Book of Exodus is simply named after the word “exit.” Merely, the book of Exodus is about God’s people “exiting” a country that has held them captive. This country was Egypt. Years earlier, for the sons of Jacob, Egypt was a place of salvation through their sold, slave brother, Joseph. Joseph was supernaturally placed for God to do what he does best—He glorifies His name and He saves His people. God does the unthinkable and impossible. Through the sin of brothers selling their brother Joseph into slavery, God worked everything to the good. At a point in time, years after the slavery deal, there’s a famine all over the world and Egypt is managed by Joseph who receives second in command of this country. Jacob, Joseph’s father and also pre-named “Israel,” and his 11 other sons are saved and so is the nation Israel.
Four hundred years later these Hebrews have been blessed by God. Their prosperity and fortune caught the eye of the new Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt. He is not enjoyed by the Hebrews population growth. Pharaoh places them into labor camps and increasingly raising the degree of difficulty. Pharaoh loves it. God doesn’t love it. It is time for God’s deliverer. Moses.
Throughout the summer of 2018, our church will be studying chapter by chapter through the book of Exodus. Learning God’s faithfulness to his people in the past will bring great encouragement to his faithfulness to us in the present and the future.
Hey! As you know we have been collecting items such as, crackers, pens, hand sanitizer, gum, and mints since January. These items are used to pack a care package for our first responders. We collected enough to bless our first Glendale PD. On Tuesday, August 17, our kids, youth and leaders came together and packed the boxes. The following week the items were delivered at various times. Many of you took time to come help deliver those boxes, THANK YOU. None of this would be possible if it were not for our amazing church family, bringing in donations and volunteering time to help. We are truly blessed and were able to give a little blessing to others. This isn’t the end of it, we have other departments and first responders we want to bless so keep bringing items in. We look forward to the next time. If you were unable to attend click here to see photos from the drop off.
Again, THANK YOU to our church, without you this would not be possible.

Living life is like walking through battle zones. There are a number of items that await to trip us up…worst yet—-try to destroy us. Some explosives you can avoid; some you have to stop and disarm.
It has been said that life’s battles begin in the “mind.” Our mind is a controlling “brain-center” in a war that encapsulates truth or encapsulates lies—-and often much of both. It is an eight-inch lobe of storage for our body to receive commands and thoughts. Our brain. Everything that your body does first originate in your mind. How does the mind relate to the brain? Are they are same? What’s going in for the programming? What’s coming out for production? Read More
