It’s easy to confuse what we do with how we do it. That’s just as true for Christians as for anyone else. So it’s worth stepping back to look at what Jesus calls the church to do, and how he says to do it. Pastor Luke preaches from Matthew 10:5–15 in “Rules for the Road: How We Can Participate in Jesus’ Mission,” part 2 of his 4-part series “Harvesters.”

Autumn reminds us that things change. More things than just the weather change: society has been transformed, for better or worse, in just a generation’s time. That includes the church. How do we relate to change? Is there a way to celebrate the past without wanting to live there? Pastor Luke teaches from 2 Kings 2 in “Replacement.” Text: 2 Kings 2 (1-10 and) 11-18.
