  • FH Staff Blog: Cheerleaders

    February 14, 2017

    Though our girls are now eighteen and twenty-one, I have not forgotten how hard raising children can be. Truth-be-told, I remember being at my “wits end” some days. Putting my kids in timeout, only to retreat to my own timeout in tears of feeling like I was failing as a parent. I’m passionate about helping […]

  • FH Staff Blog: God Sees You

    February 7, 2017

    She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have seen the one who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 The “she” from the verse above was an Egyptian servant girl named Hagar. We don’t know her story before she became a servant, but I […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Transition

    February 1, 2017

    Life is filled with transitions. I have been thinking about that a lot. Some transitions are easy and some are painful. Some choose us and we choose others. It is in those transitions that change takes place. There are those who would even say that no real change takes place except during times of transition. […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Going

    August 26, 2016

    When Jesus gave the Great Commission, he revealed that the key to reaching the world with the gospel is found in going, not gathering. Gathering is good. We see the early church, in the Book of Acts, begin to gather for the daily breaking of bread and teaching of scripture. So we know that gathering […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Planting Churches

    July 14, 2016

    Blood, sweat, tears. There’s something beautiful about bleeding with other people, that is to experience the same wounds together and the same hardships together in the achieving of a common goal. Same goes for sweat and tears. These three things seem to connect the collective souls of those who experience church planting among a community. […]

  • Missions Department Transition

    May 6, 2016

    This week marks the final week of Pastor Cheri Honderd’s leadership as our Missions Pastor. Her apostolic gifting led to the pioneering of many new ministries. Her passion for prayer and faith drove her to start the 21-days of prayer and fasting adventure we engaged in for several years. Her passion for the city pushed […]

  • Good Friday

    March 24, 2016

    Down through the centuries, the Friday before Resurrection Sunday has come to be known as Good Friday, the day when we remember Jesus’ dying on the cross. It may be tempting to skip over the ugliness of the cross on Good Friday so that we can run with Peter and John toward the good news […]

  • A Real Man

    February 4, 2016

    Last week we launched a new series called A Real Man. In the wake of the opening sermon, I have received text messages, emails, a few phone calls, and multiple face-to-face conversations. Girls are excited to hear about the character qualities they should be looking for in a man. Men are positioned to take the […]

  • By The Numbers

    January 28, 2016

    Last night’s Beach Bash was amazing! We were blessed to have approximately 115 people volunteer for this awesome event organized and led by our Family Ministries Team. Perhaps more importantly, we had more than 800 people attend that event, many from our community, and many of those without a church home. In fact, our best […]

  • Unexpected

    December 22, 2015

    Christmas shows up where you would least expect it. The story is first told to the last people you would expect. Shepherds were considered the bottom rung of society and had a reputation for being untrustworthy. People were encouraged not to buy wool or lambs from them because it was assumed it was stolen property. […]
