Kids are a blessing! There are days when parenting seems easy, but on other days, parenting leaves us looking for answers. Unfortunately, kids don’t come with instructions. Each child is different, challenges us in specific ways, and is uniquely gifted by God. Factor in that our kids are broken by sin - so are we - no wonder parenting is tough!
As Christians, we should be intentional as we strive to grow in love and generosity...in every way! Why? Because This most generous God...is more than extravagant with us. He gives us something we can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, So that we can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God. (2 Corinthians 9:10-11 MSG) Being generous in every way – that's radical generosity. Radical Generosity focuses on much more than wealth. We'll tackle what it means to be radically generous with our lives – radical in service, giving, and forgiving.
In this seven-week message series, we focus on how we view 'work'. Did you know if someone works 40 hours a week for 40 years, that means they will put in more than 80,000 hours or over nine years straight at a job during their lifetime! Is work a calling or a curse? Is it fulfilling or frustrating? Is our job more than a job? Are we serving God or man? Or are we just working for the weekends?
Our focus is on Jesus’ introductory words in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). The Be-Attitudes are attitudes, ways of thinking, that are contrary to popular opinion or natural ways of thinking. Jesus’ words challenge us to think with a kingdom perspective. We will discover the true meaning of words like humility, meekness, spiritual hunger, mercy, purity, peace-maker, and how to endure persecution. Only through Christ, can we learn to “be” what we were destined to become.
A zombie walking through Jerusalem, the sun standing still, bears mauling little boys to death - we discuss these stories and ask, “Is there something we can learn about God, ourselves, and others from these Stranger Things?”
How much do you really know about Jesus? What is His purpose for coming to earth, the meaning behind His teachings, and the significance of His life, death, resurrection, and ascension?
He is Risen! On this Easter morning we celebrate the freedom that the resurrection brings.
Through a reenactment of some of the traditional elements of a first century Jewish funeral, we can attempt to “remember” who Jesus was, why He had to die, and what part each of us ultimately played in His death and burial.
On this night, Jesus celebrated His final passover meal with the disciples, washed their feet, and revealed He would love them until the end before he experienced betrayal on this night. Jesus also gave a new command: love one another.
Habakkuk was a praying prophet who dared to ask the difficult questions. The main question this book asks is, "How can God use a wicked nation such as Babylon for His Divine Purpose?" Lent is the perfect time to ask difficult questions as we attempt to understand God's Will and His ways.
We focus on people in the scriptures who are just like US. They've been down and out, deceived, and depressed. However, their stories illustrate what it means to be chosen and delivered by God.
In the series we will uncover the amazing origins of this book, and explore some tough questions. We hope you will grow to appreciate, understand, and apply this amazing gift from God to your life.
As we gather today, our goal is to point to Jesus - the Savior of the world. Join in as we sing and celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World - Jesus.
