    The Vineyard Workers
    11.02.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

    Remember we gain an extra hour of sleep this Sunday – we’ve earned it! Daylight Savings ends this Saturday. Don't forget to set your clocks back. On behalf of all the pastors, I would like to thank you for your kindness during October's Pastor...

      Your Future Story
      10.26.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

      It has been a long time since I missed three Sundays in a row. We were out celebrating a week’s worth of birthdays with family. Before that, I was in Israel for two weeks. I look forward to being back in the pulpit, and back with you, this week.

        Living The Magnificent Story
        10.19.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

        Twenty-nine of us just returned from a wonderful trip to the Holy Land. We were treated like heroes in many places in Israel because we were the first tour group many hotels, restaurants and stores had seen since COVID-19. In a few places, we...

          Making All Things New
          10.12.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

          Greetings from Israel! I’m grateful to be back in the Holy Land (we are being treated like celebrities just for showing up). We tuned in to worship from our hotel. It was wonderful. A special thanks to all those who make the online services...

            Holy Saturday
            10.05.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

            Theologians (past and present) hold various views of what 1 Peter 3:18-22 is saying. Even Martin Luther found it confusing: “A wonderful text is this, and a more obscure passage perhaps than any other in the New Testament, so that I do not know...

              We are His Children
              09.29.21 | Devotional Thoughts | by Erika Elisha

              I woke up several mornings in humid Uganda to the sound of children’s voices singing that simple song in unison across the campus of the children’s home where I was serving. Singing was the first thing they did each day as they awoke. It was...

                09.28.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                I admit I am a bit nervous about this Sunday’s sermon. In 42 years of ministry, I’ve never preached on “Holy Saturday.” The message comes from a strange text, 1 Peter 3:18-22, that describes Jesus’ “descent” to the dead after His crucifixion and...

                  09.21.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                  The Bible begins with GOOD news, not bad. Genesis 1-2 precedes Genesis 3. When the Lord made human beings, creation went from being “good” to being “very good.” Before we adopt an identity marred and tarnished by sin, we should steep ourselves...

                    The Trinity and Beauty
                    09.14.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                    As much as we try to explain it, the Trinity is a mystery. I like what author Jim Smith said last week, “A mystery doesn’t mean you can’t know anything about it, it just means you can’t know everything.” We only worship what we cannot understand...
