The Sinner

Listen to "The Outcast" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 09-23-18

Most of us convince ourselves that we are good people right up to the point that we are caught doing something undeniably bad. That's when everything crumbles, including our confidence that we will be able to stand before Jesus unashamed.

But there is a story in the Bible that tells us how He responds when someone with no excuse for their behavior is shoved in His face.  We'll read that story together this Sunday and rejoice that in this unmerciful world, there is One who refuses to treat us as ours sins deserve.

The Outcast

Listen to "The Outcast" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 09-16-18

You have tried everything you know to quench your soul's thirst. Education. Recreation. Work. Sex. Wealth. Travel. Adventure. Volunteerism. Maybe even religion. But nothing satisfies, at least not for long.

What would Jesus say to someone who still hasn't found what they're looking for? What would He say to someone who has found it, but still feels like something is missing?

Find out this Sunday at White Pine.

The Seeker

Listen to "The Seeker" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 09-09-18

Frederich Buechner described Jesus as "that fathomless, elusive, unpredictable, haunting, and finally unknowable figure who moves though the [gospels] like a figure in an old newsreel."

But any time an individual comes face-to-face with Jesus, whether it's a character in the Bible or a 21st-century person like you or me, that encounter transforms Jesus from a forgettable, shadowy figure to a real, flesh-and-blood Person that we have no choice but to reckon with.

Join us at White Pine throughout the month of September as we encounter Jesus through the stories of those who have met Him personally.
