Traveling Light – Psalm 23:4 – TRUST

We have often talked about a common misconception that many people have about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Many believe that a commitment to follow Jesus ought to mean that God will take care of us and all, or most, of our ¬†problems will go away. But this is not an idea that comes from the Bible.…

Traveling Light – Psalm 23

Are you looking forward to some travel plans this summer? Whether it’s a long vacation or a short trip during the weekend, it’s always nice to get away for some rest and relaxation. And while we may have a growing list of responsibilities at work, school, with family and friends, and even in the church, it essential that we take time to…

Traveling Light – Psalm 23

Do you have any plans to travel this summer? Any trips planned to the beach or a weekend away in the mountains? Do you have your passport and vacation guide ready for some exciting journey to some faraway port? Or are you planning on just enjoying the summer here in central Ohio? In any case, we have all faced that moment of…

Our Core Values – Impact and Authenticity

We now come to the end of our message series on the proposed values of the Indianola Church. While we believe that these guiding principles are of great importance to our church family, we wanted to take the time to talk about these in greater depth, and provide our members with the opportunity to provide feedback. We appreciate all of your thoughts,…

Our Core Values – Multi-Generational Church Life

As we continue our discussion on the potential core values of the Indianola Church of Christ, we turn to one that some might find confusing. We believe one of our core values is being a multigenerational church. But isn’t every church a multigenerational church? The answer is more complex then you might think. Many churches are multigenerational to some degree, but often…

Our Core Values – Life Change

As we have considered the possible values of the Indianola Church we have first looked at compassion, then examined belonging. This week we will turn our attention to Life Change. We are defining Life Change as being “a significant, noticeable, and often measurable alteration in one’s personality, temperament, aspiration, or behavior.” In other words, what difference does it make for me to…

Our Core Values – Belonging

How long have you been attending the Indianola church? For some of you, this could be your very first visit. For others, this might be a place you have frequented, but still a place you are trying to figure out. For still others, this is a place that is just starting to feel like your “spiritual home.” For a church that is…

Our Core Values – Compassion

What are the things that matter the most to us? There are many ways we can answer a question like that. We can talk about the people we love the most dearly, our most prized possessions, our deepest passions and a myriad of other responses. But the question becomes more complex when we apply them to an entire group of people. What…

Greater Than

What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus Christ? For many, the answer begins with what they have to give up, walk away from, or sacrifice. For them, following Jesus sounds like a “lesser than” kind of life. But for many others, whatever is given up in a pursuit of Jesus is far less than all that is given back…
