In the first series of the new year we will be talking about how to actually grow in spiritual maturity. Questions like, "Am I moving forward spiritually?" "Am I stagnant?" "Am I moving backwards?" will serve as starting points in the messages.
Maybe you have had feelings that God is disappointed in you: "You did that again?" "You’re still struggling with that?" "I thought we were past this?" Over and over in the life of Jesus we see that He always called people to higher standard, BUT he never condemned them when they fell short.
He was the ultimate encourager. He was always cheering people on. "Get back up." "Let’s try again." "I believe in you." That’s why people were constantly flocking to him.
Those who felt the least worthy and most rejected in this world felt the most loved and accepted by Jesus. It’s really encouraging to know that the characters in the Bible faced the same things we do.
So, in this new series we are going to get back to the basics and trust God as He seeks to build the spiritual disciplines needed for us to continue to take the next steps in our walk with Him.
Prince of Peace…
For those who’ve read through the Scriptures, there are numerous names attributed to God and Jesus, each one describing a unique facet of the divine nature and Christ’s relationship to us as individuals and humanity as a whole.
In this four-week series, we'll be given the opportunity to delve into God’s promises of who Christ would be born as and who He would become known as while working His ministry toward the cross and resurrection.
Centered in Isaiah 9, the Prince of Peace series defines four names and titles used for Jesus, relating to his being born as the Christ-child: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
This series will help to anchor us in cultural and historical context while also speaking to modern society’s struggles with doubt, fear, and chaos, and how true peace is found in those who choose to follow Christ.
What Would Jesus undo?
If He was editing your life, What Would Jesus Undo?
A four week series taking a good hard look at ourselves and opening up to what God has to say about what He sees.
Unashamed: Paul's Letters to the Romans
The primary theme running through Paul’s letter to the Romans is the revelation of God’s righteousness in His plan for salvation, what the Bible calls the gospel:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16–17)
Joshua: Be Strong and Courageous
The theme of strength and courage permeates the entire book and as we trek through it this summer. It’s my prayer that we realize just like Joshua that since God is with us every day, we can be Strong & Courageous in the battles we face!
Guest Speaker Luke Moffitt:
"Love Someone Besides Me Video"
Luke challenges us to "Love someone besides me" as we listen to him share the Significance of loving others, Why We Should Obey, and Examples of Christ's sacrificial love for us.
THE WILD GOOSE: DISCOVERING A DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
This series utilized many teachings from Mark Batterson's book "The Wild Goose Chase" and we looked at many passages in scripture to help us on our quest.
This quote from Mark Batterson helps to frame the focus of our series...
“Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit–An Geadh-Glas, or ‘the Wild Goose.’ The name hints at mystery. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him. And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what it’s like to follow the Spirit through life. I think the Celtic Christians were on to something….
Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.”
Reaching Your Final Destination
The afterlife is cloaked in mystery. What happens moments after we die? What is Heaven really like? What about Hell? And does what we do in this world really matter in the next?
Join us as we uncover the life-altering answers to these questions in our new series entitled "Reaching your final destination."
The deepest love poured out of the greatest sacrifice in history. A love that heals. A love that forgives. A love that welcomes.
This Easter we celebrate the power of Christ’s resurrection!
It was a Red Letter Day. Bloody, beaten, and nailed to a cross, a dying Jesus looked at those around Him and spoke His final words as a man. What did he say to them? What does it mean for us?
Joshua 3:5 says...Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”
In this sermon we will look at the amazing thing that God did and seek to trust Him with all that He has in store for us as we walk in His will.
Philippians is full of often quoted passages: “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6), “To live is Christ and to die is gain” (1:21), and “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (4:13) as well as many more.
But the portrait of Jesus Christ as a humble servant serves as the core of Paul’s teaching in this letter (2:5–11).
