Welcome to Touching Lives

To touch a life is to ultimately impact another with the profound goodness of God’s truth. It is the breath of vitality that can shift a soul to new hope. An opportunity lit by the grace of God to come alongside and speak life to them and with them.

We know the impact Jesus Christ can have on a life is truly remarkable. When the love of Christ breaks through troubled hearts and lives, it can no longer remain the same. It is moved. Transformed. Restored.

At Touching Lives, we have made a deep commitment to reach the lost, the broken, the spiritually blind, and all who thirst for God’s truth and goodness. We have a passion to propel new life into your faith, inspire hope for the hopeless, and to reach those who seem too far. We know that all things are possible with God, and no soul is beyond God’s reach–so we press on for His glory.

With our world changing rapidly, we are re-energized and committed to touching the lives of the lost and enriching the faith of the found.

We encourage you to join and support us in the profound joy of bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world until we meet Him face to face. Come alongside us with your prayer and financial support–providing life-changing opportunities to reach, touch, and impact the world for Jesus Christ and for the love of humanity.

 

Latest Sermon from Touching Lives with James Merritt

James Merritt - December 3, 2017

Expecting Christmas

Entourage

So many people are looking everywhere but in the Word of God for answers to life. They are doing everything except the will of God trying to find meaning in life. They are worshipping everything except the Son of God in everyday life. But there is no joy like believing the Word of God, doing the will of God, and giving your worship to the Son of God.

From Series: "Entourage"

There was an entourage of characters involved in the story of Christmas. They were the ones who passed down a true story that has endured for more than 2,000 years. As we open the Bible to look at these people, we'll discover that it can change the way we look at Christmas... forever. Join Pastor Merritt as we take a fascinating look at the wise men, angels and shepherds and their unique role in the Christmas story.

But note taking is absolutely key to the sermon penetrating beyond the pews and […]
