Throw It Out

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I like spring cleaning. I like throwing stuff out or, better, giving it away. Sometimes I tell the staff here it’s time to find five things to toss out. There’s never any shortage of church detritus lying around! Throw it out. My church in Georgia had a slight sewage challenge. The...

Living Stones

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I do love Ephesians! Don’t you? This past Sunday we had the powerful image of the Church as a building, a temple, being built by God. The apostles and prophets are foundation stones. We are wall stones. Jesus Himself is the cornerstone; that means we all lean on Him. We can’t stand...

"We" Is Changing

Posted by Tim McConnell on

As we carry through our summer series on Ephesians, Me to We, maybe you have noticed that “we” is changing a little—at least on the staff here at First Pres. We have celebrated a number of retirements this year and are also welcoming a lot of new faces. Frank Shelton finished...

Don't Go It Alone

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Are you trying to go it alone? We all tend toward isolation a little bit. Maybe you are an introvert. You go to the pool, but you always have a book in front of your nose! Maybe you walk around the pool deck talking to everyone you meet, but you would never let them know what is really going on...

Heading Out

Posted by Tim McConnell on

There are a lot of people heading out, I have noticed. Some are heading out on vacation now that school is finished. I know two different families in our church who are heading out for long trips with Navigators to encourage and strengthen that mission around the world. Another friend left...

Posted by Tim McConnell on

There should be no secret. Our current series was inspired a little bit by the famous Dr. Seuss book that is read every year around this time in thousands of high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, colleges…well, everywhere: Oh the Places You’ll Go,“Congratulations!...

Partnering for Human Flourishing

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m sorry I missed it. I was out of town last week because I had the honor of traveling with Compassion International to Peru on a tour hosted by President and CEO Jimmy Mellado. First Pres has enjoyed a long partnership with Compassion, a ministry of poverty...

From a Small Seed

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I had the honor of spending this morning at the 33rd Annual Leadership Prayer Breakfast at the Antlers Hotel. The emcee was none other than our own Matt Meister! The speaker this morning was Brandon Slay, Gold Medalist wrestler in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. When he was 22, Brandon was in...

An Unlikely Believer

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Who is the person in your life you consider least likely to turn toward Jesus? We all have one ... or two, or three. It’s that person you simply can’t imagine having God in their life, or coming to church with you, or praying out loud, or showing up to a Life Group with their Bible...

My Story Is In God

Posted by Tim McConnell on

What is your story? Each of us has one. Life is lived in the middle of a great story full of twists and turns in the past and an unresolved plot pushing into the future. Sometimes we can see the plot changes coming, but sometimes not. Sometimes it’s easy to see a crisis coming, but...
