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…

A Time for Hope

Last week, we began a new series based on the instructions of King Solomon. In the book of Ecclesiastes, he reminded us that “for everything there is a season.” And in the midst of the events we have witnessed in our nation and world this past year, it has been evident that one of the seasons we need is healing.

It’s Not What You Think – What About Our Pain?

All In – How to live “All Out” for God

For the past two weeks, we have been asking ourselves what it means to be “all in” in our commitment to pursuing God and following Jesus Christ. This week we want to address a new question. What would our lives look like if we chose to live them “all out” for God? What changes would we need to make? What kinds of…
