Looking Like Jesus: The Image of God – McHenry, Illinois – November 8-9, 2019

God made man in His image, but what does God look like? It didn’t take long before we lost that image by trying to be God instead of just look like Him. But Jesus came and He is the true image of God and gives us back the image of God. Join us as we […]

#lawandgospel Living the Faith in the Age of Social Media – San Antonio, Texas – October 4-5, 2019

Instagram. Twitter. Pinterest. TikTok. Facebook too—before it was taken over by old people! Text messages. WhatsApp. Snapchat. Boomerang. We are never, ever alone.

Lord Teach Us To Pray – Bossier City, Louisiana – February 15, 2020

We know we should pray, but it’s hard to figure out what to say sometimes. Most of the time we treat it like a magic spell we only sort of expect to actually work.  Prayer is important, but when we turn prayer into a work, it turns into a curse.  So our Lord teaches us.  He gives us […]

What is Truth? – Pierre, South Dakota – January 3-4, 2020

“What is Truth?”  That is the famous question that the Roman Prefect, Pontius Pilate, asked Jesus some 2,000 years ago.  And it is the same question asked by millions today.   So what is truth?  How do we know truth?  Where do find truth?  And once we receive the truth, how do we defend it?  These questions […]
