“...the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few,” Matthew 9:37 (NIV). This verse is one of the most memorable in the Bible for me, but what does it mean to you? Recently, our newly formed White Oak community got a chance to live out this verse by performing a simple act of kindness to a community in need in our very first scatter time....

During the past two years, Lisa and I have spent a lot of time in the Riverdale neighborhood—engaging, serving, and sharing the gospel. We’ve battled bedbugs, loneliness, and discouragement, but by God’s grace we've gotten to know so many neighbors from many nations, have shared the gospel several times, which led to three salvations!...
In the early hours of Sunday morning, June 12, a horrific act of violence took place at a night club in Orlando, Florida.

We want more people to hear about Jesus, to know what it means to follow him, and we want to make the name of Jesus known in Silver Spring and beyond.

Where must you pray like Jesus towards unity: Is there an area of your lif...Keep Reading

You are a part of His grand...Keep Reading

He is better. We are completely and finally forgiven by faith in His life, death, and resurrection. Confessing sin is like a deep refreshing breath because things are set rig...Keep Reading

Which is just another way to say you will kill you; which is just another way to say, God will not tolerate sin; which is just another way to say there is life and joy in obedience. We need a change of course. Normally we respond to sin in one of two ways: Self-denial or self-improvement. Both send our lives into a sort of death spiral, orbiting around o...Keep Reading
Thereâ€™s one way to learn to pray: 1) Pray. However, thereâ€™s lots of ways to pray. Here are some nuts and bolts of prayer, a scattered pile of different ways to pray. Pick and choose, be free to fail. A real conversation is never clean, and maybe these will help you get it running. God has brought us into a family, that we would talk to â€œourâ€ Fa...Keep Reading
