A prayer by John Zulauf, January 24, 2021
I pray that you would draw us to repentance as your church from holding to “the Gospel and…”
For the Gospel and our favorite political figure.
For the Gospel and our comfort.
For the Gospel and our preferred tax policy.
For the Gospel and our ideology.
For the Gospel and our plans.
For the Gospel and our ideas of what revival is.
That we might know You and You crucified.
That we might not mix the Good News with anything else:
not with patriotism,
not with ethnicism,
not with party,
Not with class, or race, or sex, or anything else.
But just You.
You lifted up.
You risen again.
You delivering us from everything that you wouldn’t desire us to be.
Lord, draw us to repentance from the “and“. That we wouldn’t speak of You and… That we wouldn’t speak the Gospel and…
Even if the “and” is ourselves or the things we’re so proud of or the things you gave us.
Deliver us from the “and” I pray.
Can you think of any famous last words? Perhaps Julius Caesar’s “Et Tu Brute” or Groucho Marx’s “This is no way to live!” Often, a person’s last words can reveal what’s most important to them. Before Nathan Hale was hanged by the British Army, he declared: “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” When Jesus was crucified, he made seven statements that revealed his heart, his divinity, and his humanity. During this season of Lent, join us in remembering the famous last words of our Savior.
- The word of Forgiveness: Luke 23:34 “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.”
- The word of Salvation: Luke 23:43 “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”
- The word of Relationship: John 19:26–27 “Woman, look, here is your son! [John,] Look, here is your mother!”
- The word of Abandonment: Matthew 27:46 “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
- The word of Distress: John 19:28 “I am thirsty!”
- The word of Triumph: John 19:30 “It is completed!”
- The word of Reunion: Luke 23:46 “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!”
Kids these days seem to have a language of their own: “I’m low key simping for that girl over there, no cap. She’s such a Heather and that fit is fire but she seems a little extra, what’s the tea?”
I beg your pardon, what did you say?
Sometimes we can forget that, as church people, we have our own lingo that may be confusing to newcomers. We’re “born again” and “covered by the blood”. We pray for “traveling mercies” and “a hedge of protection”. Some words or phrases are silly or can even be based on poor theology while others represent deep truths that we’ve forgotten.
In this lighthearted new series, we explore how the words we use can be a barrier to communicating the good news about Jesus and to reconnect with the profound truths that we have become casual about. Join us Sundays at 10am on Zoom or in person.

When I received an email announcing that the Vineyard’s regional “Un-Conference” was canceled I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of disappointment. This was yet another event to add to my list of things that I missed over the summer. But Marshall and I felt determined to not let that time go to waste (he had already requested the week off from his other job), so we took it as an opportunity to invest in some much need self care and space. One night we packed up a picnic and found a cozy spot in a park–which sounds great, but this park closed at sunset and I had drastically underestimated how early the sun would set. Even though this was a night meant to de-stress and relax I found myself getting more and more stressed about how dark it was getting so quickly.
I sometimes find myself not ready to move forward as the season changes, stuck on the things that I’ll miss–stuck on the conferences that got cancelled, the shorter days, the dying leaves. Though autumn ends some things, it also brings new things with it: warm apple cider, cozy campfire nights, beautiful fall colors. Looking back I wonder how many small moments of joy, how many mini victories I have missed because I was looking at the wrong thing.
Are you giving your mini-victories as much attention as you give your mini-setbacks?
The changing season provides a good opportunity to explore where you are feeling stuck. What things are you grasping onto that are holding you back? What would happen if every time we felt disappointed we asked God “where are you moving?” I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss out on anything that God is doing. So, goodbye summer along with all the things that I missed; and hello fall with new adventures just waiting to be discovered.
Lord, I ask that you take my heart and make it yours. Share your excitement about new things with me, show me where you are moving. I don’t want to remain stuck, so I give you authority over the things I cling to. I want to walk with you, celebrate with you, share every moment with you instead of staying stuck in the past. Thank you for the goodness you have in store for us and the goodness we have already received. I love you Lord. Amen.

Relationships are the atoms, the building blocks of communities. The Bible is the story of the relationship between God and us. Everything makes more sense through that lens. Getting better at relationships with each other helps us to be better at our side of our relationship with God (and vice versa). God describes his relationship with us in a lot of different ways. Sometimes he is our father, other times our lover, or brother, or friend. In each case he is the perfect model of what a healthy partner looks like. Growing closer to God means relating to him in all these different ways and letting him transform our relationships with others.

Your religion is worthless if you do not bridle your tongue and you deceive your heart. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. We must be hearers and doers, not one without the other.
– James 1:22-27
At the Loveland Vineyard, we aim to simply:
Love God, and Love People.
As a church, we engage in three different kinds of activities:
- Worship (Love God)
- Community (Love People through relationship)
- Service (Love People through action)
We are so blessed to have such a strong legacy of authentic, Spirit-filled worship and small-group based communities as well as a tangible impact on our community through our Food Pantry and other programs. We believe God is leading us to build on this foundation and focus our service activities in three key areas:
Serve the Needy
Join us for Serve Day July 11, as we join thousands of Christians around the world in loving our communities. We will meet at the Loveland Vineyard at 7:15 AM before walking over to House of Neighborly Services. There is still times to sign up to volunteer below!
