What's in a name? 

The simple truth is there is a lot in a name. Just think about it. Parents agonize over the names of their children; it is not a simple casual decision. Some of you were named after some famous person or a beloved member of your family. There is something significant behind your name. 

The same is true for the many names of God found in the Bible. Provider, Sustainer, Anchor, Rock and many more, each name of God holds deep significance about an aspect of what He is like.

For the next few weeks we’re going to hear from people who call this place home, about their personal experience with the God who created us has revealed a specific aspect of God and His associated name.

TMP At The Movies: Jurassic Park

What makes a good movie? Is it special effects? Great car chases? Talking racoons? Special effects with talking racoons in car chases?

A good movie makes you lose yourself in the story. You get an escape from the daily grind if only for while.

But a great movie? A great movie is one that you and your friends end up talking about, debating the meaning of different scenes while driving in the car or standing around the water cooler. A great movie is one that raises questions, makes you wonder, that sits in the back of your mind long after the credits roll.

For the next few weeks we’re going to look at some movies and try to grasp what it is about their stories that touch us at such a deep level. And more than that, we’re going to learn that the stories in these films touch us because they touch on the larger story that God has written and called each of us to be a part of in this world. 

Due to technical issues there will be no message posted this week. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Our hearts operate in a similar fashion and all too often we don’t pay attention to the gauges and dials in our lives that alert us when things aren’t operating the way they should. In this series we’re going to explore some simple ways that will help us last over the long haul.

Your life is a story, a series of moments that show where you have been, that highlight who you are and what will define your next chapter.

Glenn's story is a story of peaks and valleys, light and dark, hopelessness and hope because through it all God was there. The one thing Glenn hopes is clear, is that no matter where you are in your story, no matter what you’ve done or what’s been done to you, God is there with His arms wide open waiting to embrace you and walk with you.
