This week, we have a special guest! Retired pastor Rod Otto joins Lori and Matthew to talk about reaching the outcast. In part two, Rob and Matthew talk about why it’s still important to be a member of a church in a day when church membership seems like an old-fashioned idea. If you have a...
First up on today’s episode, we talk with Pastor Rob and Pastor Matthew about how to read the Bible. It can be a daunting book but it’s also where we hear God’s voice. We’ll talk about how to approach the Bible and make it part of your walk as a disciple. Then, Pastor Rob, Pastor...

We’re back! Our break ended up being a little longer than we planned (thanks to Covid, a major renovation project, and a pastoral search process that took priority) but we’re back with another season of Everyday Disciples! In our first segment, we talk about colorful language – Christians and cussing. It seems like everyone does...
