Today on Everyday Disciples, we take a look at another worldview that’s common in our world today: secular humanism. What happens when we remove God from the equation and try to make sense of the world around us without Him? You end up with secular humanism! In the second part, we continue our walk through...
This week on Everyday Disciples, we take a look at a practice that doesn’t get a lot of attention these days: fasting. Jesus talked about fasting as a way of trusting in God and it’s a practice that many followers of Jesus have found to be beneficial to their walk. We’ll explore the practice and...
We’re back for season three of Everyday Disciples and starting off with a difficult and timely topic: Responding to Roe vs. Wade. It’s been a few weeks since the US Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade and we’ve all had some time to think about what that means. Sit down with Pastor Matthew, Lori, Stephanie,...

It’s almost Easter and we’re looking at a weird Bible story associated with Jesus’ death and resurrection: the temple curtain tearing in two and the tombs of saints opening up with their inhabitants leaving the cemetery. It’s a strange little scene but it’s packed with meaning! Then in part two, Pastor Matthew and Adam take...
First up in today’s episode, we tackle the topic of Singleness. Often, without realizing it, the church can become very marriage and family-centered – to the point where singles in our midst can feel like they’re somehow less than what they should be. Aidan, CJ, and Pastor Matthew talk about how we can be mindful...
This week on Everyday Disciples, we look at a question that gets asked surprisingly often – should Christians be cremated? What does the Bible have to say – if anything – about how we handle our loved ones’ remains when they die? Pastor Rob mentioned an article that might be helpful – it’s on page...
When you hear the word “Sabbath,” what comes to mind? For many people, they might think about going to church or not doing any work. They might even think that it’s an ‘Old Testament” thing that doesn’t matter to us today. But we need a Sabbath today! We’ll explore with Aidan, CJ, and Pastor Matthew...
