Some people claim to speak what Jesus stood for but don’t match up to His words. Some people claim to say what Jesus believed but then find their Jesus is quite different than the Jesus of the Bible. Some people have walked away from Jesus based on what they have seen or experienced by others but never really got to know Jesus of Nazareth for who He really is.
Maybe it’s time to stop assuming you know Jesus and spend some time hearing His words and seeing His actions.

The Shepherd’s Fellowship is starting a new study this week through the gospel of John. John was one of Jesus’ best friends and an apostle. The reason he wrote this book is so that “you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 20: 30-31

John knew he was writing to people who either knew little about the real Jesus and/or where leery of His claims. This time together will give you a chance to get a first hand account of the One who many worship, many deny, and many still seek.

As we start our study, John lays out the deeper purpose of his gospel as well as the two main themes we will see repeated time and again. We will explore three errors that the world thinks of Jesus and refocus ourselves into the truths taught as we dig into John together.

When we started the “Mountains” series, we explored how beautiful the life God has for us is but as we travel the path, the fear of the cliffs around us can keep us seeing God’s glories in our life. As a community, we identified different “cliffs” we are dealing with and are going to tackle them one by one through study and practical life application.

The first one we will be addressing is our physical health. We know many have challenges due to being out of shape, struggling with illness, fighting addictions and more. For this reason, we will explore God’s ways and instructions that gives us the keys to moving forward into life and freedom!

If you have been struggling at all in the area of physical health or know someone that is, we invite you to join in and be part of a morning of worship, fellowship, encouragement and study.

Pastor Tom returns from his vacation in Alaska and brings some thoughts with him from God’s Word and His creation!

We all face different kinds of challenges in our lives that invite us to worry, stress, and fear. However, in Christ, there is a promise that we can have peace in the midst of the struggles.

Why do we find it so hard to hold on to this kind of peace?

Why does it seem that so many people who claim to be Christians have lives that are stressed out, hypercritical, and look nothing different than most anyone else? They claim to follow Jesus but instead continue in a cycle of actions are not of God and end up in places of regret and bondage.

If you believe in God, believe in Jesus and/or just think God wants you to a good person and that’s it…… this study is for you.

In this study, we will explore the disconnect between faith and actions. We may not be able to fix the world by ourselves but we can make new steps in changing the worlds around us.

If you are wanting closer to God, eternal life in heaven, or a more powerful life over all… this one if for you.

If you feel Christians think they are right and everyone else is wrong … this one is for you.

If you feel overwhelmed, alone, and unloved… this one is for you.

Some of Jesus’ last words before He takes the cross are very telling of why He came from Heaven to Earth and why He sacrificed Himself. In one small conversation, He shares three important truths of the results of the Easter celebration and we explore them together and what they mean for you today.

Spiritually hurting? Please read this….

In this study, I felt led to speak into a reality we all hit at one point or another. In some cases, we are experiencing it today as we try to find our way through.

Even though we know the truth of God and the Bible…
Even thought we have had undeniable experiences with Him….
Even though we have a rich history of Him moving in our life…

Right now? We struggle. We hurt. We are not sure how to move on. We feel disconnected and battered.

If you are in this boat or know what’s it’s like as you have been there before, I pray you come out as we let the Spirit minister to that area through the Word and His touch.

It might be hard but it’s worth hearing His whispers. I know. Elijah knows.

Many people ask, “How can I know what God’s will is?”

Many people have taken “leaps of faith” just to have things fall short.

Many people are using the wrong gauge to find where God is leading them.

In this study, we look deeper at how to not only chase after God’s dreams for your life but how to best find confirmation that you and God are on the same page.

Enjoy the Christmas narrative and the testimony of the shepherds in a little bit of a different vantage point that will help you have a more firm foundation in your walk with God.
