1 Corinthians 1:12-13 NIV
 What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas ”; still another, “I follow Christ.”  Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul?
Insert pastor Nick, pastor Rick and Christ! It seems apparent to me that depending on whether Nick or Rick is preaching there an imbalance in attendance and in giving. What’s up with that do you suppose? Are we coming to Church to be a fan of a person or to be part of the body of Christ? To learn more about Christ and develop a relationship with Him or just feel good in the status quo? My hope is you find joy in being challenged in The Word of God and want to grow in His grace. Come together regardless of who’s preaching. Grow and thrive in Christ.
