This weekend, we will continue our study of Cain, looking at the events of his life after he murdered Abel. There are many questions and speculations about the nature of Cain’s punishment and how he spent the rest of his days. In this message, we will uncover the truth not only about Cain’s life but also about God, both His justice and mercy. This weekend’s message is titled “WANDERER.”

This weekend, we are looking at the creation of the sun on the fourth day in Genesis 1. The sun is often something we take for granted, but life on earth wouldn’t exist without it. God set it exactly the right distance from earth and made it exactly the right temperature to sustain life for His creation. The title of this weekend’s message is “BRIGHTNESS.”
This weekend, we conclude Isaiah 53 and focus on the reward for Jesus’ obedience. Isaiah writes about Jesus’ seeing generations beyond Himself, pointing forward to the resurrection and His victory over death and the grave. We were stolen out of God’s hand, but Christ came to rob the grave and steal us back. The title of today’s message is “PLUNDER.”
This weekend, we are examining our relationship with Christ and how we have wandered away from what we know to be true. Like sheep, we have turned away, but our Good Shepherd has taken our sins upon Himself. The title of this weekend’s message is “ASTRAY.”
This weekend, we are continuing our study of Isaiah 53. Isaiah writes about someone suffering in our place. The suffering that was meant for us was laid upon another and we were healed as a result. This idea is one that is directly tied to the very core doctrines of Christianity and our understanding of the cross. The title of this weekend’s message is “VICARIOUS.”
This weekend, we are taking a look at Peter’s call to submit to various forms of authority. Submission is a word that can mean many different things to people. However, for the believer, it is a means of honoring God and obeying His calling on our lives. The title of this weekend’s message is “ASSIGNMENT”.
This weekend, we are continuing our series through 1 Peter and moving further into chapter two. Peter is reminding his readers that God has not abandoned them to the darkness, but instead has called them into His presence. As believers, we cannot continue to pursue the darkness of the world after God has rescued us and brought us into the light of His presence. The title of this weekend’s message is “MARVELOUS LIGHT.”
This weekend, we come to the end of chapter 1. Peter is encouraging his readers to love one another out of obedience to God’s Word. We can show love because we have first been loved by God and restored. In showing love to others, we are displaying the power of the gospel. The title of this weekend’s message is “FERVENT LOVE.”
This weekend, we will step back and take a look at the faithfulness of God toward His people. Throughout Scripture, God gave His people constant reminders of His faithfulness. He has done the same for us this year and this message will help us remember that He will never let us down. The title of this weekend’s message is “FAITHFULNESS.”
This weekend, we will take a look at how Jesus’ birth was perceived by the religious leaders of His day. They were used to being in power and navigating the political climate of that day for their benefit. However, the coming of Jesus radically changed their way of life. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN RELIGION.”
This weekend, we are continuing through the first chapter of 1 Peter. Peter is reminding the Jewish people that their lives should not be built around things of this world that will fade away or fail. Rather it should be established upon the eternal truth of God’s Word and their identity as believers. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER PLAN.”
This weekend, we are continuing our study of the life of Peter. There was an incident where Paul had to correct Peter. Instead of bristling up, Peter not only accepted that correction, but goes on to praise Paul. It is difficult to accept admonition from others, but God often uses that as a way to course correct our behavior or our understanding. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE ADMONITION.”
This weekend, we are moving forward in Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul is writes about His life before encountering Christ. He has every reason to boast in his accomplishments, but he states that all is worthless compared to having a relationship with Christ. His pedigree is meaningless in light of the cross. Paul reminds his readers that the true mark of success for the believer is having a relationship with Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “TRUE GAINS.”
Jesus warned His disciples not to practice their spirituality in order to be admired by people. It’s pride that leads us to demonstrate our charity, prayer, and fasting to people rather than God. God looks down on such religion. It fails to meet His approval. But, when we do things for His eyes only, He not only approves our actions but also blesses us before all.
