Roundup Church GLOWs in the Community

The Roundup (Mont.) Church has recently taken on a GLOW (Giving Light to Our World) challenge. Each week the members are given a challenge involving the popular GLOW tracts, led by church member Kay Dickerson. The members then report on their progress the next Sabbath at church.

One challenge was to place GLOW tracts in unusual locations. Some were placed in books and jigsaw puzzles at a senior center. Some went into a case of beer in a store, doctors' offices, restrooms, gas stations and even a milk crate at a school lunch room. 

Growing Together in Jesus

Together in the last five years, we joined in prayer and ministry to reach western Washington with the distinctive, Christ-centered Seventh-day Adventist message of hope and wholeness. We desire to encourage all to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus.

We asked each ministry department, church and school to find action-oriented applications to nurture our community of faith. This became our ACTS acronym: Adventist Christian education, Coaching leaders, Total member involvement and Spiritual growth.

Hayden Lake (Idaho) Church was abundantly blessed to host a series by Daniel Gabbert, who delivered a five-day, 13-hour series during Sept. 8–12, 2018. In this series, Gabbert focused on the vital importance of prioritizing quality time with God and deepening our daily walk with Him. Gabbert, a mental and spiritual health coach at Black Hills Lifestyle Medical Center in South Dakota, used his testimony of being called from living a wild and self-focused lifestyle to God calling him to higher ground and, in turn, calling others to come to God through His Word. 

Infallibility and Authority

January 16, 2019 / Seth Pierce / Church, Authority, Infallibility

Most of the time this column shares a personal reflection or a story with a note of encouragement for a situation you may be facing. This time, however, I am stuck, and I am going to let you wrestle with my stuckness. Besides, I’m still recovering from my qualifying exams, so I feel more like asking questions than answering them at the moment.
