  • For I Know the Plans I Have For You

    May 22, 2017

    “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11 This verse is very well known. It’s the typical graduation open house verse. Everyone loves it and it makes us feel good to read that we […]

  • Beautiful Art

    May 16, 2017

    Imagine the world without music, poetry, dance, film, photography, architecture, painting, stories, theater or sculpture. Such a world would be bland. Art brings vibrancy and beauty to our lives. Can you believe that we serve the most creative being? He lives in us, and because of that, we have been empowered and have been given […]

  • Why is Youth Week Important?

    May 9, 2017

    If you’ve been around Fair Haven and Harbor Churches, you’ve probably heard about this thing called Youth Week. In a nutshell, Youth Week is the glorious collision of summer camp and local mission trip. This year somewhere between 250-300 middle and high students will live at Fair Haven, serve during the day, play in the afternoon, […]

  • 21 Days of Fasting & Prayer

    January 26, 2017

    There’s this great story in John 3 where Jesus was having a conversation with Nicodemus, a Pharisee, one of the religious leaders of his time.

  • FH Staff Blog: Desiring More Fruit

    January 19, 2017

    It’s been a tradition over many years for my parents to give us one of those ginormous, decorated popcorn cans on our way out from our family Christmas party. You know the kind; delicious caramel, messy cheddar and the plain that gets eaten last! Well, this year they switched it up on us big time. […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Divine Conversations

    August 11, 2016

    The culture in this world is ever changing. It’s becoming more and more challenging to get through even a week without hearing of some sort of tragedy, suffering or injustice. While dining at family restaurants such as Culver’s or Applebee’s, children are exposed to the world’s happenings on the TV screens, not to mention in their own […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Going to Dangerous Places

    August 5, 2016

    Most of us are risk averse. Safety matters to us. We don’t want our children playing in the middle of the street and we don’t want to move into the neighborhoods with the highest incidence of crime. We want our children to grow more independent but we are not real excited to give them the […]

  • Baptism Multi-Tasking

    July 28, 2016

    As St. Patrick was baptizing King Angus in Ireland in the middle of the 5th century, he inadvertently placed the pointed end of his staff on Angus’ foot. When Patrick then leaned on the staff, the king proceeded to bleed profusely, though suffering in silence. At the end of the ceremony, Patrick saw the king’s […]

  • VBS 2016

    July 22, 2016

    We had a huge number of children pre-register. There were another 150 who signed up at the door. We had seven children with special needs mixed in the crowd with their one-on-one mentors. Somebody asked me how many children were present. I looked at a sea of children seated in our worship center and I […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Youth Week – this is the Church.

    June 30, 2016

    Make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one one mind. – Philippians 2:2. This passage was our goal for Youth Week. We read and meditated on it several times in our leader meetings and with the entire body of students. With 235 students, 120 volunteers, […]
