Ask the Pastors: Women in the Church
How are women portrayed in Scripture? Are they any lesser than men or equal? How can they serve the church? Pastors John Nicholson and Josh Watford dive into questions surrounding women and the church. We are so thankful for all the many dedicated women in the church who serve week in and week out. We pray this podcast is an encourage to them and the men of the church as well.

The Importance of Remembering ft. Dr. Lonette Berg and Elizabeth Wells (200th Celebration Series)
Throughout 2022, we will have special conversations with guests who are helping us celebrate our 200th anniversary as a church. Today, we sit down with Dr. Lonette Berg and Elizabeth Wells. They are helping us update our Siloam history book. In doing so, they are helping us remember: both the distant past and not so distant. We discuss why this endeavor is worthy and why we all should be a part of it.
Ask the Pastors: What About Our Community?
Pastors John Nicholson and Josh Watford take your questions concerning community outreach. What are we already doing? What are ways for you to plug in? What is coming up? How can we be the hands and feet of Christ to those who need it most? Join us while we look at these and related questions.
Ask the Pastors: What Does the Church Building Say about God?
Why do I church buildings look like they do? Are church buildings really even important? Can I just "be the church" all by myself? What about VR churches? These are just some of the questions and issues that arise on this episode of the podcast. Pastors John Nicholson and Josh Watford dive into the world of church architecture and how God has created us as physical beings.

Correction: Pastor Josh mentioned a video of Walmart on the metaverse. While it is true Walmart is preparing to have a prominent presence on the metaverse, the video he mentioned was actually from 2017 and thus not an accurate representation of what the Walmart experience on the metaverse will be like.
Ask the Pastors: Why Should I Go To Church?
Is physically being in church THAT important? In the digital age where podcast, livestreams, and your favorite worship music is available at a click, why go through the effort to show up and deal with other imperfect, messy people? Pastors John Nicholson and Josh Watford discuss why this is vital to our Christian growth and mission to the world.

I love it!
As a listener since the beginning, I have enjoyed the content throughly! It has challenged me, convicted me, and opened my eyes to the lack of time I was spending with God in community and solitude.
Also, seeing these guys work through some technical challenges to have better quality podcasts was awesome!
I look forward to these podcasts every week!
