TRUE RICHES

(Click here to view the “TRUE RICHES” introduction video by Pastor Mark)

Jesus knew that how we think about money shapes our character.  Our approach can make us more like him — full of contentment, purpose and freedom — or it can cause a tragic separation from God and the joy he offers.  In this series, based on the book by the same name, we’ll contrast the financial attitudes that weigh us down with those that give us life.

In the month of March, we will be hearing firsthand accounts of Biblical characters who had their lives completely changed by Jesus.  Join us on Sundays at 10:00 am, either in-person or online, as we hear their stories told to us through dramatic character portrayals that will bring these accounts to life.

WHAT’S YOUR WHY?

(Click here to view the “WHAT’S YOUR WHY?'” intro video by Pastor Mark)

Have you ever wondered why?  Why me O Lord?  Why do bad things happen to good people?  Why does God allow suffering?  Is it ok to ask God why?  This series is going to focus on what God wants us to know and how He plans to help us navigate our way through the “Why times” that life throws our way.

Have you ever found yourself wondering if things are ever going to get better or if you are ever going to catch a break?  Does it seem like a dark cloud is always following you and you don’t know what you’ve done to deserve what is happening to you or what you are having to go through?  God, why me?

Why is it that evil is so prevalent and appears to prosper while those who do good seem to get trampled upon?  And why does it seem that those who do evil seem to get away scot-free?  Is there any hope for justice?  God, why not destroy evil right now?

DON’T GROW COLD (A study in I Peter)

(Click here to view Introduction Video by Pastor Mark)

January in MN, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, and as the pandemic continues, it’s natural to grow cold and callous towards life.  The Log Church wants to help you resist or even melt the cold in our hearts.  Stay warm.  Stay sensitive to His Spirit as we step into the new year.

BEHOLD! 

THE BEHOLD CHALLENGE  (click here to view)

The word Behold means to see or gaze upon.  There is a lot to look at during the Christmas season…the lights, snow, Christmas deals and presents piling up underneath the tree but is that what we are supposed to be gazing upon or should it be something else?  This four-week Christmas series will focus on what we need to be BEHOLDING at Christmas time and all the time!

Whenever we are faced with an uncertain future, we still have something we can fully expect and trust.What are you trusting in these days?  Is it trustworthy?

Storms are a reality for all of us. You may be in a storm right now.  How can God give us the ability to see through the storms?

We need to keep our eyes open to the many ways God works in our lives, because if we don’t…we may miss it.

How do you see yourself? How does God see you?  Once you know it may change everything in your life.

Join us either in person or online for our special Christmas Eve services that will have wonderful music, an inspirational message and a special candlelight time that will help children, youth, families and adult of all ages to BEHOLD HIM!

2020 is almost over…finally! What should our focus be as we move into 2021?

NEED HOPE?

Tough circumstances are no match for the kind of inner strength fueled by hope.  It’s the difference between a situation destroying your future and a situation galvanizing your potential.  (Outline from 50 Days of Unleashing Hope from Hope Covenant Church, Chandler, AZ hopecov.com)

A NEW NORMAL: FINDING NEW RHYTHMS OF LIFE

This four-week series reminds us that God is with us in the disorienting, culture-shifting situations we find ourselves in, whether because of a global pandemic like COVID-19, a new life stage by choice, or a sudden change by chance.

TWISTED

In a world of texts, tweets, and memes, the Bible often gets reduced to an old book of inspirational quotes and wise sayings.  This series will help us sort out commonly misquoted verses and misunderstood passages to keep us from getting God’s Word twisted.

Truth Plus Love

(Based on the book by Matt Brown)

The stakes are high and the need is great for Christians to represent Jesus to the world.  Today, we have more influence than ever before—for better and for worse. Social media has provided a global megaphone, but it’s not enough to speak truth louder to a noisy culture.  To counter the negative reputation Christians have earned, our love must be just as loud.

Followership

Go to any bookstore and you will find dozens if not hundreds of leadership books.  In today’s world we seem to be consumed with pursuing leadership yet Jesus says, “Come and follow  me.”  And during this pandemic, we are all forced to follow yet, for many of us, this is becoming increasingly difficult.  So, how can we become better followers and could it be that the key to being a good leader is to be a great follower?

G.O.A.T.  (Greatest Of All Time)

Whether or not you’re a Christian, it’s hard to argue that any man has had a greater influence on history than Jesus.  Two thousand years after Jesus’ time on earth, we still talk about Him and what He did.  In this series we take a look at things that made Jesus the G.O.A.T.

Hope In The Midst of a Pandemic:

The COVID-19 pandemic is real and it will be impacting us for awhile.  How are we called to respond and live in a world that will be battling and struggling with this virus?  Where is God in the midst of this?

Living In A Messed Up World

Things in our world seem to be getting “messier” every day and it can lead us to wonder if there is anything we can do about it.  Thankfully, there is and that is what we are uncovering this winter at The Log Church as we take a journey through I Peter.

RE: Jesus

Isn’t it amazing how busy we get at Christmas time?  We have so many things that require our time and attention which can make it easy to forget what Christmas is really all about.  When you send or receive an email, many times the subject line will tell you what the email is regarding, (RE:).  So throughout the month of December the subject of our messages will be … RE: Jesus so that we do not lose focus on the One who is the reason for the season.

Living In Open Brokenness

We live in a world where everyone has a difficult time admitting weakness, failure, and especially brokenness.  The process of being “broken” does not mean that we are somehow separated from God — in fact, it is the opposite!  It is our brokenness that we are drawn to God and to each other.
