Over the past 30+ years they have regularly provided musical ministry in churches involving over 40 Sundays each year. Their mission is to "Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord" and their music provides an uplifting experience for both the musicians and the congregation.

Finding Balance

Why do people make New Year’s resolutions? Sure, we want to lose weight, get into shape, eat healthier, work less, keep the house cleaner than it’s been, read the Bible more often, watch less television, and stay in touch with our friends better. But why do we want to do these things? Maybe something is out of balance in our lives, and in order to achieve balance once again, we need to make changes to our lifestyle by adding or subtracting to it. So this means less junk food, more exercise, less laziness, more communication, less stressful situations, more time with God. Therefore, the beginning of a New Year is the perfect stepping stone to change. It gives us the opportunity to start over in order to see if change will make a difference in the way that we experience life.

In the fourth chapter of Luke, Jesus makes his own resolution:
“I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.” In other words, Jesus came to bring balance to our lives. Amidst the chaos, turmoil, distractions, and disobedience we experience in our lives, Jesus delivers God’s unfading and unconditional love to all people.

As New Year’s resolutions are discussed, may we agree to make time to nurture our relationship with God. Turn to the one who came to us as a baby born in a stable. Turn to the one who gave himself up on the cross on our behalf. For it is in Jesus that we place our hope. It is in Jesus that we truly find balance with God. – PASTOR YOUNGDAHL
