We're continuing our exploration of holiness and sanctification this week as we discuss the topic of sexual immorality. NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the first part of this service did not record. To catch this week's worship in song in its entirety, please watch via our Facebook page (starting at around the 5:37 mark.)…
 
In the second part of our study of 1 Thessalonians (July 2021), we're diving in to chapter 4 and will discuss Holiness and Sanctification. Holiness/Sanctification is a two-part process. At the outset, it is our commitment (sanctification) to God--we set ourselves apart for God. But sanctification is not only about what we do, but what God does. God…
 
Today is a day we call "New Life Sunday," during which we celebrate baptism and baby dedications as well as introduce new church members. We'll also be featuring an "All-In" Update as we prepare to wrap up the 3-year campaign that enabled significant changes and updates to our building and grounds. Why are these things important? Because PEOPLE are…
 
Family takes commitment. And the church is meant to be like a family--a complex balance of love, humility, and care. People are the priority of the kingdom! A church built on this principle--the church as a family--has a lasting impact. Do you value your church like a family? Or are you suffering from spatial disorientation, and somehow missing the…
 
Pastors Paul and Mara join special guest Bryan Knurek in this week's podcast discussion about the Holy Spirit. Who He is, how He helps us, and the gift that He is in our lives has been the main topic in the kids' area this past month, which also coincides with the celebration of Pentecost on the church calendar and what we've been talking about dur…
 
What if the object of life was not to get our own way, but to find ourselves in God's way? There is simplicity in this understanding, but simple does not mean easy. Even Jesus wrestled with the Father's will in the garden. The resurrection was only realized through the obedience of Jesus--our resurrection will come through our own willingness to jo…
 
Our podcast is back this week, as pastors Paul, Mara, and Josh discuss weeks 4 & 5 of our Fuse Breaker series. It is our hope that these conversations will inspire you to talk about our weekly teachings outside of Sunday morning services, because dialogue and study is an important part of being a Christ-centered community. CHALLENGE: Using these di…
 
It's easy for our religion to simply become phrases we use. But in the Lord's Prayer, God invites us to rely on Him for our daily bread. It's not an otherworldly practice--He is invading our day to day life! "Your Kingdom come" is the recognition that God not only offers life after death, but life before death. He wants to a part of every detail of…
 
Many of us remember learning and memorizing The Lord's Prayer as a kid, but how has our understanding and/or application of the prayer changed as we've matured both in age and faith? This week, Pastors Josh, Mara, and Paul discuss the infamous prayer and how it pertains to forgiving the "debts" that might keep us from relational wholeness.…
 
Busyness is the enemy of relationship with both God and others. Yet the entirety of The Lord's Prayer points to simplicity. It's simple in word, in length, and in trust. And it's in this simplicity that we not only find rest, but relationship. How then should we approach Lent? What can we unplug that will allow more space for relationship?…
 
We've begun a new series entitled Fuse Breaker, and the idea behind it is that God is inviting us to unplug, to let go of things in order to leave space for relationship with both God and others. As we're using the Lord's Prayer as our reference guide for Fuse Breaker, both this scripture and Lent are the basis of today's series discussion on the b…
 
It's important to recognize the distinction between unity and uniformity when we're talking about how we can be Better Together as the body of Christ. In 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Paul addresses some major differences between the people of the early Church. We can say the same about our culture today, right? That there are some significant difference…
 
Koinonia sounds like a fancy word, but pastors Paul, Mara, and Josh break it down in this week's discussion using Acts 2:42-47's depiction of the early church. When it comes to our church and community, Koinonia is important. It's a shared purpose--loving God and loving others. But...what exactly does that look like at Marysville Nazarene? How can …
 
As we've learned over the last several weeks, community is woven into the fabric of creation--and that includes the church. Despite its problems, and the imperfections of its people, the church is intended to be a place of deepening connection, just as it was in the days of the apostles. The early church was together--in teaching, fellowship, commu…
 
It's easy to say we want our community to be ever-expanding, but when you start talking about ever-deepening connections, things get hard. It takes perspective, intentionality, and as we discussed on Sunday, a level of vulnerability to build deeper, more authentic relationships. Pastors Josh, Mara, and Paul discuss the many obstacles that keep us f…
 
Deepening community requires deepening vulnerability. Relationships are worth the risk! Vulnerability is a process that begins with authenticity--the courageous willingness to open ourselves up to others and to allow them to open up to us. Could it be that our vulnerability results in not just true connections with others, but a deeper relationship…
 
In this series, we've been taking a closer look at what we want our identity to be as a church. We know that we want the ever-expanding, ever-deepening connection God calls us to, but sometimes there are barriers to that: time and vulnerability. If you haven't yet heard/watched Sunday's sermon, we encourage you to do so (https://youtu.be/Z3zZkmcxH5…
