The Best Ever

November 23 - December 27, 2020

Having wrestled with darkness and death for most of 2020, during this Advent season we want to let His light lead us to the gift of abundant life here, now and forever (John 10:10). John tells us the light came, “So that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31). Many things are good. We may even call a few things the best. But Jesus is The Best Ever.

Romans 8

October 12 – November 22, 2020

Chapter 8 is unique as it both teaches theology and has a practical application. It has been called the "inner sanctuary within the cathedral of Christian faith." It marks a major transition. It describes how we no longer live under the condemnation of sin but have been given the Holy Spirit and adopted into a new family. The Christian faith is based on the Resurrection of Jesus. It is full of hope because "all things work together for good..."

The Power of Generosity

September 14 – October 11, 2020

This four-week series will focus on generosity. It begins with God’s generosity to us. The supreme revelation is through Jesus. He taught His followers a lifestyle of generosity, even to the point of laying down His life for His friends. We can live in His kingdom or we can stay in the kingdom of darkness. Jesus said it so well: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:10-11)

Resilience: The Art of Moving Forward

August 10 – September 13, 2020

The word, “resilience,” means “strength, buoyancy, flexibility and elasticity.” A resilient person has encountered a significant struggle, hardship or fall and learned to adapt. Resilient people turn adversity, setbacks and trauma around and learn to be content and compassionate. Resilient people are realistic, optimistic and hopeful. They do not quit. They stay in it for the long haul. Like the Monarch, we also must change, make transitions, and keep moving forward.

Look Up

July 13 - August 9, 2020

In this series, we will go further up and further into the fullness of life God has called us to. We will look at more transforming moments in Scripture.

But...

June 1 - July 12, 2020

This series continues our theme of transforming moments. We will look at some key figures from the Old Testament and pivotal points in the biblical narrative.

Shift

April 27-May 31, 2020

Life is about learning how to shift. We must be flexible and make transitions to advance in life. However, nobody does it perfectly. It takes time to figure out how things work. We will look at how folks have gone from “A” to “C” by learning to shift through “B.” We will study three examples of leaders who shifted well: Joseph, Moses and Joshua.

Promises

December 23, 2019 - January 26, 2020

Many things come and go in life, but we have one constant – God’s promises stand forever. We change but “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). The following verse in Hebrews is also instructional, “Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace…”

Isaiah 40

November 25 - December 22, 2019

Throughout his book, Isaiah keeps pounding away that there is no one like God. We do not need to be afraid! (41:10) God was not defeated, even though Israel was defeated, and its leaders carted into exile by the Babylonians. The Babylonian gods are nothing in comparison with the Almighty God. Isaiah wants people to know that though they have sinned; their sin has not separated them from God forever. God is not defeated by the Babylonian gods nor by the sin of the Israelites.

Second Mountain

October 14 - November 24, 2019

This sermon series focuses on these two mountains and the valley experience between them. I repeat I am not trashing success. As the old quote goes, “I’ve been rich, and I’ve been poor and rich is better.” However, there is more to life than winning and the accumulation of stuff.

Better Together

September 9 - October 13, 2019

The five messages of this new sermon series, “Follow the Leader, Seek the Lord, Be Strong in the Lord, Bless the Lord and Dedicate to the Lord,” follow the biblical text of the Israelites building the Temple. King David wanted to hand off a great legacy to his son, Solomon. The intent was to bring glory to God. This series will illustrate what others have done when faced with opportunities and challenges. We will save a seat for you!

Renewing Strength

July 29 – September 8, 2019

Looking to God’s Word for strength when dealing with shame, depression, anxiety, and disappointment.
