Balance. How many of us look at 2020 and say to ourselves, “Next year I’m going to find more balance in my life.” Of course 2020 was so out of whack that maybe it shouldn’t even count! God has some very definitive direction when it comes to balance and priorities in life.
“The children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of sugarplums danced in their heads…” Sugarplums…really. Try Oculus Quest or electric Skate Board! But you know what’s still the same? The anticipation and excitement that comes with the “night before Christmas.” Anticipation has always been a part of Christmas. In fact, it all started hundreds of years before Christmas. Let’s look at that together in a message titled “Coming Attractions.”

Peter once wrote regarding the Apostle Paul’s letters, that sometimes Paul writes things “that are hard to understand” (2 Peter 3:16). I wouldn’t be surprised if Peter was thinking about the 9th, 10th and 11th chapters of Paul’s letter to Rome when he said this. There are definitely some challenging things to think through in this series. But, just about the middle, Paul makes this amazing statement of hope and encouragement. “Anyone who trusts in him (Jesus) will never be put to shame. (Romans 10:11)” Now that’s worth wrestling through some challenging statements to get to. And that what we will be doing together in our series from Romans…”No Shame!”
Where Are You?

Where are you? It’s the first question asked by God in the Bible, and it’s one that reveals more than a location. Where are you? Where are you in relationship to Jesus and others around you? This is the most important question we will ever answer.
Do Unto – How well do we “one-another?”

When I attended Bible school, I had several classes that taught us how to preach the Word. One of the things we were taught was that one of the best ways to get a point across is repetition. If that’s the case, God must be trying to get something across to us, because in his Word he has repeated over and over again, “one another.” We’re going to explore some of these “one anothers” in the Bible and their significance.

Does it seem like the world is going off the rails on a crazy train? The coronavirus, police brutality, and race are at the forefront of our daily news cycle, but if we look back, as far as recorded history reaches, we will find that today’s events are just par for the course. In all this turmoil, Jesus still promises a peace that passes understanding. Join us for this series and find the peace this world desperately needs.

When in Rome

When In Rome . . . A familiar statement meaning, adapt to your situation. Adjust to the culture you are now living in. Fit into the rules of the house you are now hanging out with. But Rome at the time the letter of Romans was written had a pretty violent history, and it had destructive consequences for the church in that city as well. So the Apostle Paul sits down and writes a long letter to that church in which he identifies what he believes is the recovery process necessary to heal this church. Let’s explore this together in this series. We’ll return to the book of Romans this fall . . . “No Shame.”

I love to hear people’s stories. How did you two meet? Where did you grow up? How’d you get that scar? True North has a story. Part of our story is wrapped up in how we got started. Part of our story revolves around what we have decided is important. Our priorities . . . our Core Values.
