  • Youth Week 2017

    June 23, 2017

    Youth Week 2017 has taken a combined 4,288 human hours to plan. During Youth Week, adults served 7,170 hours and students served at least a combined 5,400 hours. Altogether, I estimate that Youth Week amounts to about 16,858 human work hours. That’s a crazy statistic. And with all of the people’s time given to a single thing, […]

  • Cut to the Heart

    June 13, 2017

    We first hear this phrase in Acts 2, when we learn about the Pentecost. The word Pentecost derives from a Greek word meaning 50. The first Pentecost happened 50 days after Easter. The Bible tells the story of a gathering in Jerusalem, where 120 people, including Jesus’ Apostles, his brothers, and his mother, were gathered […]

  • Be Our Guest

    June 5, 2017

    Don’t forget to welcome outsiders. By doing that, some people have welcomed angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2 Hillary sat in her car in the parking lot, engine running, staring at the doors. This went on for 10 minutes, if not longer. Her eyes were on the people walking in the doors, laughing and shaking hands […]

  • Impacting Our Community One Child At a Time

    May 30, 2017

    I love our mission statement. I love the idea that we are helping people find their way back to God. I love that it says people and doesn’t qualify which ones. God loved the world and that includes the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the person next door and the person […]

  • 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, […]

  • Small Dreams Kill

    May 2, 2017

    Nothing kills a church quite like a generic vision. Small dreams kill. A church will die a slow death if the vision of the church is reduced to something as small as being friendly, having a good worship service, or providing good enough programming. Nothing will kill a church quite like reducing its life energy […]

  • On The Move

    April 25, 2017

    “They say Aslan is on the move—perhaps he has already landed,” [said Beaver]. And now a very curious thing happened. None of the children knew who Aslan was any more than you do, but the moment the Beaver had spoken these words everyone felt quite different…. At the name of Aslan, each one of the children […]

  • He Is Risen!

    April 17, 2017

    This past Sunday, we gathered together to celebrate that Jesus Christ has risen. The tomb could not contain Him. Death itself could not contain Him. He is risen! I love Easter. I love it for everything it signifies. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:17, if Christ has not been raised, your faith if futile; you are […]
