Worship Arts: The Lenten Season 2.26.2017

I make the assumption that most people know this, but the “E” in the acronym that we use as a moniker for our church’s name (PEPC) stands for the word Evangelical. Applied as such, evangelical is a descriptor of our theological position and ecclesiological affiliation. At the heart of all we do and believe—of everything it means to be evangelical—is the centrality of the gospel. This is especially true in our corporate worship. In fact, the two words (gospel and evangelical) share the same original Greek word: euangelion which means literally, “good news.” In 1 Corinthians chapter 15:1-6 the Apostle…

Worship Arts: Toward a More Vibrant Christian Community 1.22.2017

Hey all, thanks so much for those of you who came out last night to Buckskin's to hear Mark's band play and support live music! For those of you who weren't able to make it this time, know that we have another opportunity already in the works for next month — this time to go see some Memphis-style Blues. Save the evening of Saturday Feb. 11th on your calendars and look for more info to be forthcoming! Now some of you may be wondering about how going out to see live music on a Friday or Saturday night relates back…

Worship Arts: People of the Book 10.9.2016

Before we get too far removed from this past weekend (and I'm about to get really removed! ;) …sitting at the airport with Sarah currently waiting to board our flight to Edinburgh), I wanted to say thanks for the privilege of serving with you! I don't take for granted the many blessings God has poured out on us at PEPC: an amazing facility in a beautiful setting; the privilege of gathering in a context where we have the freedom to worship without fear of repercussions. But most importantly,  it is the people that He has brought and continues to bring…

Worship Arts: Worship and Mission 9.25.2016

As this was our fourth week in the "We" series, we came to the fourth and final clause in our vision statement ("We are a spiritually hungry people seeking to turn from sin, become like Christ, and share God's transforming Word with the world"), and it caused me to think yet again about the relationship between Worship and Mission. At PEPC you'll notice we don't necessarily gear our worship services toward the non-believer. We aren't particularly "seeker-sensitive." We don't shy away from engaging the deep things of God or pointing to some of the more culturally challenging aspects of our faith such…

WE: IMMERSION 9.20.2016

THE INTERSECTION By: Doug Resler HOME MAIN BLOG September 20, 2016 WE: IMMERSION Discipleship, Church Family "You mean to tell me you've never been kicked out of the house by your wife?"  All eight guys around the table were staring at me like I had just grown a second head.  I was weird.  DIfferent.  Out of place.  For two years I had been playing pickup basketball and summer league softball with the same group of men.  All in their twenties and thirties.  All pretty good guys.  None of them Christians.  And I loved hanging with them.  This particular comment was…

WE: BECOMING 9.13.2016

THE INTERSECTION HOME MAIN BLOG ABOUT September 13, 2016 WE: BECOMING I am a terrible artist.  About the best I can do is manage a stick figure.  But I know artists.  In fact, I even live with one.  She is able to see things in her minds eye before they actually come into being.  She draws.  She paints. She creates.  With each stroke of her brush, something new emerges.  Somehow she is able to "see" how all the different brush strokes come together to make a painting that is beautiful. Legend has it that the brilliant Renaissance artist Michelangelo was…

WE: U-TURN 9.13.2016

THE INTERSECTION HOME MAIN BLOG ABOUT September 6, 2016 WE: U-TURN Following Jesus, Discipleship "You've ruined my life."  I was having lunch with a friend of mine and about choked on my food when he shared this with me.  "Ruined your life?" I asked.  "How so?"  "Ever since you and I prayed together and I accepted Christ, my life has not been the same.  The things I enjoyed before are no longer any fun.  The parties.  The drinking.  The sex.  I had no problem with it before but now I feel guilty.  I hate who I am and what I've…

WE: Satisfied 9.13.2016

THE INTERSECTION  HOME MAIN BLOG ABOUT August 30, 2016 WE: SATISFIED Church Family "I'm starving."  How many times in the course of my life have I uttered those words without thinking?  How many times have I truly missed a meal?  Or not had food available in my refrigerator or pantry?  How many times have I not been able to go to the grocery store and take my pick from all kinds of different foods coming in all sorts of different brands and varieties? I am certainly not rich.  Not by American standards.  I know what it's like to be on…

Seeking Connection, Finding Community 9.13.2016

As a pastor, I have the special privilege to be invited into the deep…

Worship Arts: Are we having fun yet? 8.21.2016

So, true confession, ever since Nathan stopped rehearsal on Thursday to ask me if I was having fun at that particular moment I've been thinking about what the worship leadership experience is like for the leader. We talk often about considering the "people in the pews," and "engaging the congregation," and rightly so—this is the task of the worship leader, but it would do us well to also examine what our own worship experience ought to be like as we lead. Nathan asked the question "are you having fun?" Having thought back on it, I want to ask the further…
