Has your view of God changed over the years? Not to sound judgey, but I hope so. Maybe he started, in your mind, like a magnanimous grandfather, then became Santa Claus-esque, then maybe a hard-nosed cop. Based on what we want and don’t want, do and don’t like, our views change. But, hopefully, as we … Continue reading Does God Change?
All but one of this week’s Psalms specifically say they were written by David. And, in this week of Psalms we will see a wide range of thoughts and feelings. David wants his enemies to get what’s coming to them but he also encourages all faithful people to praise God regularly. David pleas for God … Continue reading The Highs and Lows of David
Hello, Munger Kids! Last time I talked(okay, wrote) to you I shared my favorite Bible verse and the importance of memorizing scripture! Keeping with that same theme, I wanted to share a neat resource for memorizing scripture. It’s originally from Watermark Church and it's called ABC Memory Verses! Click here for the link! Wouldn’t it … Continue reading ABCs of Scripture
I, for some strange reason, have babies on the brain. Obviously, I don't remember being a baby. For some reason we don't form memories at that age, but it makes me wonder if, at some point, I actually felt God breathe the breath of life into me like he did to Adam. Was it that … Continue reading The Breath of Life

I also get embarrassed for … Continue reading I’m a Little Embarrassed.

We’ll tap into each throughout the year, but for today, we’re looking at the older elementary … Continue reading Here I Am!

Actually, I didn’t forget, but I did let myself get caught up in the chaos of back to school AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL! Can we all just absolve each other of the things we failed to do … Continue reading Did you forget?
We’ve cancelled elementary Sunday school today - not forever – not because we didn’t have enough teachers or because we’re lazy, but because Justin Wren, an MMA fighter is coming to speak in worship. He is not just an MMA fighter. He is also a missionary. He cares for those who are truly the least … Continue reading Why We’re Cancelling Sunday School
As you know, we’ve gone “all in” on teaching your kids the Bible. We want them to leave the children’s ministry with a firm faith foundation. We want them to know God’s word, what it means for us, and what it does and does not say. Now, we can’t teach them every verse – and … Continue reading What do you think?
Today is Wednesday, VBS begins in 5 days, which means Denisa and I haven’t slept in at last 2-3 weeks. It also means an inordinate amount of animal crackers will be consumed next week. It also means that I will, as I do every year, confirm that I am physically incapable of learning and performing … Continue reading VBS – It’s Here!
