Sunday, December 18, 2022 - The world around us demands our allegiance and devotion, pretending to offer security and prosperity. But there is only one true King Who can provide us with all that we need . . . and He’s coming back soon!
Sunday, December 11, 2022 - For some this season of joy is more like a season of dread, loneliness, and doubt. But the season of advent reminds us that our joy in Christ is not tied to our circumstances, but rather to His promises and the coming of His Kingdom.
Sunday, December 4, 2022 - “Don’t say I didn’t warn you!” It’s our way of telling someone to take our warning seriously, to pay attention and act. John the Baptist’s warning about the nearness of the Kingdom of God still rings true today so we better sit up and listen.
Sunday, November 27, 2022 - Ever have an unexpected guest stop by? The bathrooms are dirty, clothes strung out all over the floor, dishes piling out of the sink . . . it’s so embarrassing! Being caught unprepared is an experience none of us want. That’s why Jesus warns us to be ready for His return, because it could happen any day!
Sunday, November 20, 2022 - As we aspire as a church to reach those around us and help them grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, 3 John shows us how we can embody and demonstrate the truth of the Gospel to each other and to those outside the church.
Sunday, November 13, 2022 - Sometimes we feel like we’re just one mistake away from messing everything up. But God doesn’t want us to walk around like we’re on egg shells. Rather, we see in 2 John how God wants to prosper us in our daily walk with Him.
Sunday, November 6, 2022 - God wants us to know that He loves us and is for us! In 1 John, we’ll see how we can have confidence in this truth and find the purpose behind each and every day.
Sunday, October 30, 2022 - As Jesus was entering Jerusalem on the day we call “Palm Sunday”, the crowds were proclaiming His Glory. When the Pharisees told Jesus to quiet His followers, Jesus responded by saying “I tell you, if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” As we celebrate Profession of Faith Baptisms we acknowledge that our own hearts of stone become hearts of flesh as we cry out, “Jesus is Lord!”
Sunday, October 23, 2022 - Since the beginning of the world, God has been drawing humanity to Himself, incorporating them in His mission of building His Kingdom. The Church is now that vessel through which He works, as He not only draws us closer to one another but adds to our ever-growing family!
Sunday, October 16, 2022 - While Christians can worship God anywhere, there is something unique about the corporate assembly of the church. Jesus has redeemed His church to be a praising people, but what does that mean “to worship”? In this message we’ll explore how our gathering is much more than just a Coldplay concert with a TED talk, but a unique family-building experience in the presence of our God.
Sunday, October 9, 2022 - When we read that "All the believers were together and had everything in common," we often wonder what this looked like. This week, we’re going to tackle it from another angle - why? Why did they hold all things in common? Together we will learn that motivated believers then, still motivates believers today: The cause of Christ.
Sunday, October 2, 2022 - Acts 2:42 describes what marked the community of believers in the early church. Prayer is listed as one of those markers. The act of prayer draws us into an intimate communion with God and with our brothers and sisters. Prayer grows our faith, calms our anxieties, and strengthens our trust in the Father. Join us as we consider our devotion to prayer both individually and corporately.
Sunday, September 25, 2022 - Sharing meals together is more than just eating. Rather, breaking bread together is a powerful act of corporate renewal and mutual service. Put on your stretchy pants for this one, because we’re going to get filled up!
Sunday, September 18, 2022 - The church is supposed to be friendly, but biblical community is far deeper than that. The earliest Christians didn’t just spend time together but mutually committed themselves to one another's total welfare. What might our church look like if we recovered that kind of community?
Sunday, September 11, 2022 - Solid foundations are everything, but continued maintenance and upkeep are essential for a healthy and sound home. In the same way, the early church didn’t just read scripture, but devoted themselves to knowing and practicing it, so it would be at their core.
Sunday, September 4, 2022 - We live in an upside-down world that tries to tell us it's better to live independently from God than to follow God's principles. Jesus asked, "What good is it for someone to gain the whole world and lose their soul?" We must understand the price of living independently from God - losing our souls - because God has designed us to be connected and in relationship with Him.
Sunday, August 28, 2022 - Sin in our lives doesn’t just happen. Rather, we see there are always many things in our lives and hearts that lead us to transgression. In King David’s life we see how even a man after God’s own heart could lose his way … but how God could bring him (and any of us!) back.
Sunday, April 21, 2022 - The Bible tells us that God is good and loves us, but we all have times in life when it doesn’t feel that way. In fact, sometimes God’s love feels the opposite of that. But watch what happens when Jesus invites three people into one of the greatest miracles He ever performed . . . raising a man from the dead!
Sunday, August 14th, 2022 - Of all the Jewish feasts Jesus chose the Passover as the time to institute the Lord’s Supper and the time of His crucifixion. But what seemed random at the time to the disciples would take on extraordinary meaning after Jesus’ resurrection, and continues to do so today!
The Book of Ruth concludes with perhaps one of the most surprising and astounding endings found in any story. The story literally encompasses and predicts the entire Gospel – a thousand years before it would even happen. In Boaz we see the result of the transformational grace of Jesus in our own lives but also in the way He seeks to build His Kingdom through us. Do not miss this!
Sunday, 31 July, 2022 - God’s provisions & promises are found throughout all of Scripture. He has a way of taking care of us even when we cannot see the provision in our midst. Boaz models for us not only the upright character of one who follows God, but as well, he is a model of the redemption we find through our Christ and Lord, Jesus. He is an example of both provision & promise.
Sunday, July 24, 2022 - There’s family and then there’s family. As Ruth continues to go deeper into a Biblical family, she learns what genuine care, loyalty and commitment look like. Sometimes we don’t realize that it’s the family we find in Biblical community that truly cares for. And often, that is who we should really care for. Who gives you loyalty, care and commitment? Who gets your loyalty, care and commitment? Find your family.
Sunday, July 17, 2022 - Naomi is back where she started. As we continue to walk with them, we see how Ruth’s unselfish commitment to Naomi sets her up for a chance meeting that will forever change both their lives. But was it by chance or was it by divine intervention only made possible by her commitment to Naomi and to her Biblical community?
Sunday, July 10, 2022 - Meet your Elder Nominees as they share a verse and perspective that speaks into their lives.
Sunday, July 3, 2022 - As children of God who have been bought back by the Blood of Jesus, we bear the image of God, our Father. Some would say, we are a “chip off the ol’ block.” The faithfulness, loyalty, and loving nature of God, becomes our nature, too. We see this powerful demonstration of love, loyalty, faithfulness, and sacrifice as we walk with Ruth & Naomi in our passage. It is the witness that when we are loyal and loving in our relationships, we are imitating God’s faithfulness, too.
