Messy Grace: The Love Part – Life Lessons from Jesus

We are now at the midway point in our “Messy Grace” series.  As we have continued to look more deeply at our understanding of what messy grace means, we have covered the topics of grace and truth.  While we are often tempted to err to greatly toward one side or the other when faced with messy situations and relationships, the greater challenge…

Messy Grace – The Truth Part – Lessons from Jonah

Last Sunday we began our “Messy Grace” teaching series, based on a book written by Caleb Kaltenbach. Week one was all about “The Grace Part.” Week two will be about “The Truth Part.” Cory Holt, and elder and lifelong member of the Indianola Church, will share life lessons from the story of Jonah and stretch our thinking about some very deep, yet…

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.

A Time for Giving Thanks

As we bring our “To Every Thing There is a Season” message series to an end, we close out with “A Time for Giving Thanks.” No matter how challenging our present circumstances might be, we all know that we have much to be thankful for. And although we just celebrated our national holiday of “Thanksgiving,” we would like to set aside one…

A Love Greater Than Our Sexual Differences

As we continue deeper into our “Rebuilding Bridges” message series we will be tackling some of the most divisive issues facing our world today.  Cory Holt speaks on the topic of how sexuality has become a dividing force in America, increasingly since the Supreme Court upheld the legality of same-sex marriage.

It’s Not What You Think – “Who you really are!”

We live in a world that is filled with information.  So much information that we are overwhelmed with it.  Yet, at the same time, we are forever seeking out new information that is reliable, accurate and something that brings value to our lives.  Here is the problem we all face, much of the information that is readily available to us is irrelevant,…
