The theme reflection questions for our Colossians study (now two weeks in):
"Do I find my completeness in His sufficiency? Or am I trying to find freedom and fulfillment without surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus?"
Feel free to share your thoughts here or personally reflect as we continue to move through this powerful book together.

Challenging and well-written article about hidden sin in the American church (and American me 😳). Thankful for the grace of Christ that drives out condemnation and for the presence of the Holy Spirit who enables us to pursue holiness with increasing measure, all the days of our lives.
Are we changing the Bible to fit our culture or are we changing our culture to fit the Bible?

If you missed the powerful word on True Worship (Isaiah 58) last week, take a listen as you prepare your heart for our gathering tomorrow.
In light of "Spending Ourselves" on others, if you have the opportunity to grab a few extra groceries for our two families in need, we'll be collecting and distributing again tomorrow after service. These offerings are really blessing and making a difference :).
Love, though wildly romanticized and often nebulous, is the single greatest sentiment sought after by human kind throughout the centuries. The desire to love and be loved is the foundation of the majority of our songs, literature and film. John Lennon even went so far as to say that “all you need is love.”
Though the meaning of love is often cluttered with misguided culture and centered around self, the intrinsic desire for unconditional love is intentionally and graciously birthed in each person by God, who is in Himself true love.
God is the author of marriage, the creator of family, the designer behind all human relationships. He gets love. Creation was breathed in love and humankind was offered eternal salvation through the single defining act of love.
When Jesus’ closest followers asked Him which of the many good commandments was the most important, He replied that the greatest law is to love God passionately and wholeheartedly. And the second most important is similar, to love people with that same love.
Valley Christian Assembly is a group of people that are asking all of the same questions about love that the world is asking, but while looking to the only source of answers, Jesus Christ. As we learn together how to truly love and accept the unconditional, unmerited love of Christ, we will discover not how others should love us, but rather, how to shower those we know and meet with the same, crazy love that was first shown to us.
