    FOR the Community // Dave Nelson

    From adolescence to adulthood, most of us can resonate with struggling to find our identity. As we grow and change, we wonder “where do I fit?” and “how does God want to use me?” Our church has asked a lot of those same questions– and over the course of 15 years we’ve been able to hone in on what kind of church we want to be in this community. We’re just getting started!

    Not Later // Josh Petersen

    What do you do when your now isn't the now your later had in mind? Sometimes our best-laid plans fall apart and the situation in front of us will change where we're headed forever. How will you respond?

    Right Now // Josh Petersen

    Right Now // Josh Petersen

    Why is it that every time we know where we’re going, how we’re going to get there and when we’re going to get there something gets in the way? Inconveniences. Hurdles. Roadblocks. We face these every single day with every single goal. And usually we spend a lot of energy trying to get around them, but what if we shouldn’t? What if there’s something to the “setback?” What if it’s not a setback at all? What if it’s a setup for something better later?

    For People // Josh Petersen

    There are a lot of people just surviving in life. They’re making it through every day but not much more than that. The week is a list of checkboxes that they work through until the weekend. Truth be told, there are a lot of churches like that too. Just existing. But shouldn’t it be better than that? If there really is a creative God orchestrating all of this, there has to be a point…a purpose.

    Why Your Work is Just as Spiritual as Church Work // Josh Petersen

    Why Your Work is Just as Spiritual as Church Work // Josh Petersen

    The number one reason most people have jobs is to make money. Without a job our rent, car note, grocery bill and our Starbucks addiction won’t get paid for. So most of us get up every morning and go to a job we hate, and maybe think is pointless, because it’s a necessity not a passion. And because of that, we’re often left feeling like our lives may not matter as much as others. But nothing could be further from the truth. In Jesus’ Kingdom everything matters…even your work.

    Why We Should Not Leave the Internet // Josh Petersen

    Why We Should Not Leave the Internet // Josh Petersen

    Most people look at their phone 2,000 or more times per day. And most of what we find on it stresses us out, makes us feel insecure, or is just bad all together. Usually our reaction to something like that is to run away from it. But if there’s a way for us to make it better–to change it–shouldn’t we?

Great way to learn when I'm busy

I miss services a lot due to work and it has been great to be able to listen to a message that is practicle in my own car.

A church for people who don’t like church

I moved back to the Illinois just about a month ago and getting plugged into GLC has been easy. It’s a welcoming atmosphere and the staff has worked really hard to develop a space where people who don’t feel comfortable in church - feel comfortable here.

A hospital for the sinners, not a hotel for saints

As someone who’s attended Great Lakes for a few months, I’m so grateful to have found home in this community. The pastors and the churchgoers aren’t afraid to ask the hard things or talk about the socially-taboo stuff. They’re willing to lean into the discomfort, even when it means getting a little messy. Having these messages accessible on the go has been an awesome way to keep connected even when I can’t make it to church on Sunday. Thankful for the engaging messages and meaningful takeaways from each and every talk.
