A moment can change everything. One decision to be different, think different and move different can end a legacy or start a new one. That’s a good thing…sometimes a bad one. Either way, we have the ability to change the future and do it different ..read more

Letting Go of Grandpa’s Grudges
Great Lakes Church

Every so often we are asked why we don’t like a certain person, party or sports team. And often our answer is, “Because my dad doesn’t like them.” And he would likely say something along those lines for why he doesn’t like them. We’re spending parts of our lives angry aacznd bitter but don’t have to. If we choose to see others through a different lens, we might get to change the generations-long story ..read more

FOR the Community // Dave Nelson

From adolescence to adulthood, most of us can resonate with struggling to find our identity. As we grow and change, we wonder “where do I fit?” and “how does God want to use me?” Our church has asked a lot of those same questions– and over the course of 15 years we’ve been able to hone in on what kind of church we want to be in this community. We’re just getting started ..read more

Right Now // Josh Petersen

Why is it that every time we know where we’re going, how we’re going to get there and when we’re going to get there something gets in the way? Inconveniences. Hurdles. Roadblocks. We face these every single day with every single goal. And usually we spend a lot of energy trying to get around them, but what if we shouldn’t? What if there’s something to the “setback?” What if it’s not a setback at all? What if it’s a setup for something better later ..read more

For People // Josh Petersen
Great Lakes Church

There are a lot of people just surviving in life. They’re making it through every day but not much more than that. The week is a list of checkboxes that they work through until the weekend. Truth be told, there are a lot of churches like that too. Just existing. But shouldn’t it be better than that? If there really is a creative God orchestrating all of this, there has to be a point…a purpose ..read more

Why Your Work is Just as Spiritual as Church Work // Josh Petersen
Great Lakes Church
by Josh Petersen

The number one reason most people have jobs is to make money. Without a job our rent, car note, grocery bill and our Starbucks addiction won’t get paid for. So most of us get up every morning and go to a job we hate, and maybe think is pointless, because it’s a necessity not a passion. And because of that, we’re often left feeling like our lives may not matter as much as others. But nothing could be further from the truth. In Jesus’ Kingdom everything matters…even your work ..read more

Most people look at their phone 2,000 or more times per day. And most of what we find on it stresses us out, makes us feel insecure, or is just bad all together. Usually our reaction to something like that is to run away from it. But if there’s a way for us to make it better–to change it–shouldn’t we?  ..read more

It’s hard to run the race of following Jesus when the reality is: we’ll never be good enough! But everything we need to know about running the race with endurance and keeping our eyes on Jesus can be found in an interaction between a guy named Simon and a prostitute ..read more

Is Objective Truth True? // Josh Petersen
Great Lakes Church
by Josh Petersen
2M ago
Your truth, my truth, we all have a truth. But can they all be true? If all truth is relative then how do we actually know anything at all? Does your brain hurt yet? If there is such a thing as objective truth, then it means everything to everyone. And that’s… the truth ..read more
