Mackenzie Matthews- Ways We Grow- Spiritual Disciplines

Read more

In this message Mackenzie kicks off our series all about ways we grow in our faith. This message highlights private spiritual disciplines. That mind sound super lame to you. But I promise its not. These are the things you do on your own. Prayer, giving, reading your Bible, having a 'quiet time' or 'devotion' time. All things you do to lead yourself, where you need no one else to lead your or join you. So, what might it look like for you to engage this area of your life intentionally?

Mackenzie Matthews- A Seat At The Table- The Disciples

Read more
9.4.18 // We're spending the fall looking at unlikely people that God used in the Bible in our series called A Seat At The Table. Turns out basically everyone in the Bible that God chose were not qualified. In this message Mackenzie shares all about discipleship and why the 12 disciples were all wrong for the job.

Discussion questions:
-If you were Jesus, picking your disciples who eventually carry on your entire ministry, what kind of people would you choose?
-Why is it important for us today that Jesus chose the disciples he chose?
-Is there anyone who you know who you can tell has been with Jesus? What stands out about them?
-When was a time you counted yourself out early? What happened? What could have happened if you hadn’t counted yourself out?
-Do you consider yourself a disciple of Jesus? If so, what does discipleship mean for you or look like for you?
-When was a time you were in over your head? Did your dependence on Jesus change?

Mackenzie Matthews | The Work You Make Matters

Read more

Mackenzie Matthews is a dear friend and pastor of Timberline College. She's also an impressive visual artist. On 9.16.18, she shared with us concerning the importance of creative work, whatever our work is.


Genesis 1.27

Nehemiah 4.16-17

Matthew 13.13-16


“Unless we are creators, we are not fully alive.” - Madeline L’Engle 

“A singer songwriter named Peter Case was leading a discussion among aspiring muscians concerning lifelong habits of creativity. He talked about how the artist operates as a thieving magpie, always on the lookout for bits, threads and fragments that might serve in the assembling of a nest. With the same working survival instinct, the artist draws inspiration from a half-remembered remark, a billboard, an odd facial expression mis-perceived, a snatch of dialogue among strangers or whatever’s at hand... to articulate something needful, new and timely whether in lyric, image, story or argument.      “How old are you guys?” He asked when a lull had set in. Most reported in their late teens and early twenties. Nodding he surprised everyone by saying, “You’ve seen enough then. You have more than enough material to get you where youre going.” After a pause, “But maybe you havent seen what you’ve seen.” - David Dark   “Thank you. Thank you and keep going. Please keep writing songs. Please keep believing in music, because we do, and we need it, and specifically we need yours. We need the sounds and words and rhythms of hope and longing and beauty. We need the drums and strings and the haunting twist of your voice. We need the poetry of your lyrics and the spirit and force of your sounds. We’re desperate for great music, and there’s so much out there, but never, ever enough. We’re desperate for great storytellers, great painters, great dancers, great cooks, because art does something nothing else does. Art slips past our brains straight into our bellies. It weaves itself into our thoughts and feelings and the open spaces in our souls, and it allows us to live more and say more and feel more... Thank you and keep going” - Shauna Neiquist      TAKEAWAYS   Creativity is a matter of human identity. How can you participate in creativity this week?    If its not work, is it art? What opposition are you facing when it comes to creativity? Share it with a friend.     Have you really seen what you’ve seen? Consider praying for eyes to see and ears to hear.     The work you make matters. Thank you and keep going.
