This weekend, we are examining Jesus’ statement that he is the “resurrection and the life.” He delivers this statement in the context of the loss of his friend, Lazarus. Jesus reminds those gathered to mourn that he is the answer to the problem of death. Christ himself was not bound by death and his resurrection offers wonderful promises for us as well. Much more than something to talk about at Easter, the concept of resurrection is central to our faith.
This weekend, we are continuing to examine the pictures for evangelism that Jesus gives his listeners. Jesus refers to himself as a shepherd and extends that metaphor to evangelism by talking about bringing sheep into the fold. What are we doing to reach the lost and bring them to our shepherd, Jesus Christ? The title of this weekend’s message is “SHEEPFOLD.”
This weekend, we are taking a look at the ongoing process after the moment a person gets saved. The Christian life is about God molding us and making us more like Christ. Much like metals are refined and made purer, the life of the believer is a process of God developing Christian character within us. The title of this weekend’s message is “SANCTIFICATION.”
In this weekend’s message, we are looking at humanity. Ultimately, every theory about the development of mankind wants to explain how we got here. What is our origin? What about things like cavemen and Neanderthals? We will address those questions and more in this weekend’s message titled “ASCENT.”
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.”
In today’s message, we will look at the rest of Psalm 34. We heard last weekend that God rescues us, even when the situations we are facing are of our own making. David goes on to talk about the secret to enjoying a good life. God is continually caring for and blessing His children. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE GOOD LIFE.”
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 message is titled “CRUCIFIED AND RISEN.” The point of the message is this –The crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus are not just historical facts. They are a present reality. They are more than just events from the past that save us. They are events in the present that free us from the grip of sin and give us the power to live. After we get saved we are to live the crucified and risen lives.
As you know, this weekend we will be celebrating Easter as a church. What a wonderful time of worship and rejoicing as we remember the resurrection of our Savior. We will be taking a look at the story of Jesus’ resurrection from the perspective of His followers. How did it affect them? How did they respond? For many of them, their actions were fueled by something much deeper than obedience. They were motivated by a love that gave them boldness and purpose. The title of this weekend’s Easter message is “FEARLESS LOVE.”
We will look at the promise that was given to Daniel that at the resurrection "those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever."
Contrary to what many consider, the resurrection of Jesus is not some stale doctrine based on some event that took place 2000 years ago. In fact, it is one of the most applicable doctrine of Christianity.
