Derek, along with his wife, Shannon and their son, and baby on the way will partner with the NorthRidge Church Network, churches that exist to “Reach and Equip People for Christ without Borders.” The Highland church will become the sixth church in the network that include…

Easter @ Sower

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.  His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not…

Sower 2021

With 2021 coming to an end, as a church, we have much to be grateful for and to celebrate for all that God has done. Restoration City Merge In August, we merged with Restoration City Church. What a blessing to have pastors Dan Coke and Derek Rempe join our pastoral leadership team, and for Alex Bartle, Chloe Bartle, and Ryan Lovie to join our college staff team.

Missionaries Update: Brock & Megan Langey

Since that summer 2014 mission program that took Brock and Megan to Alaska, there was that hope that one day they could return. Alaska held a special place. It was where they met and where they both felt that God was calling them to do full-time college ministry. At that time, Brock and Megan were not married. She, from Missouri, and he, from Mississippi, returned to their home states, but they reconnected after that summer, talking more often and sharing…

Next Step Class

God has been doing wonderful things at Sower Church, and all glory goes to Him for growth and new visitors each week, and this amid a pandemic. Because of this growth, it’s important that we share who we are, what we are, what we do, how we are structured, where we’re going, and why we do what we do with those who eventually consider Sower their church. Every fourth Sunday of the month, Pastor Mike Whitney will hold an introductory…

2020 Reviewed as We Look to 2021

Let’s be real, Church. 2020 was not the year we had planned. In January, we rebranded as Sower Church and celebrated all that God had done in our history as a church replant, allowing us to move forward and carrying the mission to reach our city. A global pandemic in March changed everything for everyone. The spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) caused fear and anxiety, even among believers. Though Scripture is clear that God has given us a spirit…

Campus Fellowship Gears up for Fall & Beyond

When Zane and Faith Sherrer were hired as the new Campus Fellowship directors, they expected to be able to lead a college ministry without restrictions and guidelines to follow, the ones that have become so common during a global pandemic. Covid-19 changed everything for all us, including how two new college directors would approach their new position and upcoming school year. The vision never changed, though. With the fall semester underway, Campus Fellowship still hopes to reach many students so…

Meeting a Need During COVID-19

When COVID-19 began to spread rapidly in the U.S., health professionals and first responders would soon encounter a shortage of face masks nationwide, including here in Lincoln. Noelle Petersen knew she could help. Back in March, Noelle joined a group on Facebook, the LNK Community COVID Crafters, to sew homemade masks for Bryan Hospital, the first major medical facility in Lincoln to request homemade masks. She received five free mask patterns and began pattern testing for her husband, Jordan, who…

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

LIVESTREAM 10AM SUNDAY MORNING Dear, Church. The spread the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused fear and anxiety, even among believers. Scripture is clear that God has given us a spirit of love, not fear, and that He, ultimately, is in control, trustworthy, and good. May we experience peace in the midst of these circumstances as we dwell on the truth of God and His sovereignty. This does not mean we should be careless or reactionary, but rather be aware and work…

Restore Campaign: Sunday School Rooms

It was your generosity that allowed for a much-needed update to our Sunday school rooms. Back in April, we announced the launch of our Restore Campaign, a one-year financial commitment to remodel our church to help facilitate our growing attendance and our increased ministry opportunities for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the summer, work began upstairs. Y’all came and did the demo work like you were Chip & Joanna Gaines. A work crew then installed new floors upstairs and painted so we could…
