Monday Mission - Beauty in Every Season

Does this image look like what you've been facing lately? For many of us in the Midwest we've literally been facing lots of snow covered roads this winter. Straining our eyes to find the road or looking for a car ahead to show us the way. Wishing our tires were gripping a little tighter to the pavement but prevented by the barrier of ice and snow.

Friday Devotional - Be Courageous

We’ve been slowly walking through the Book of Psalms, and this week we’re looking at Psalms 31:19-24. Psalms does such a great job of hitting about every topic and every emotion there is. It’s the book in my life that has been the most relatable to me over the years.

Thursday Thought - Rejoice in the Lord

We’ve spent the last few days talking about getting the New Year off to a positive start and a few ways to do that. I believe in counting your blessings, intentionally practicing gratitude and looking for the unexpected ways that God moves in our midst.

Wednesday Story of Impact - Bibles & Breakfast

As we talk about the power of new thinking and new creations this week, some pastors and high schoolers are doing just that every week near the Andover and Champlin Pizza Ranches. Every Thursday, a local high school opens to allow a pastor from a nearby church and nearly 100 students to gather before the school day starts to be fed both spiritually and physically – they hear the truth from God’s Word and eat breakfast together.

Tuesday Truth - New Year, New Creation

2 Corinthians 5:15-17– “And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Monday Mission - Happy New Thoughts!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a wonderful first day of the New Year and I’m excited to kick off this first week of the New Year with you on Pizza Ranch Serves. We all know about New Year’s Resolutions and studies show that close to 40% of adults make them every year.

Friday Devotional - Resolutions and Redemption

As you make your New Year’s Resolutions remember that it’s ok to not be perfect. Resolutions are a great way to help you “Do Your Best” and to “Pursue Excellence” in improving a certain area of your life, but they are not a means by which we gain salvation.
