Abraham and Sarah are often depicted as this no-name family moving from Ur to God’s Promised Land. However, they were much more than just wanderers. Abraham, Sarah, and others around them knew something was going on, that God’s plan was in motion. They could see God blessing them and protecting them as they followed His plan in obedience and faith, ultimately leading to the birth of Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “MAN OF PROMISE.”
This weekend marks the conclusion of this series on evangelism. We are called by God to be the light of the world. Light is integral in eliminating darkness and drawing attention to something. We are able to shine a light, but not because of anything within ourselves. The title of this weekend’s message is “LAMPSTAND.”
In this very special message this weekend, we will examine the culture of Clearview itself. This is more than just a service that we attend or a building where ministries meet. Clearview is a family that God brought into our lives. We all have a responsibility in the ministry and impact of our church in reaching people and creating a community here. The title of this weekend’s message is “MULTITUDE.”
This weekend, I will begin a two-part series on the importance of being connected to our church family. This is more than simply attending service and listening to the message. This is serving in a ministry, attending Sunday School, and joining a small group. The title of this series is “CONNECTION.”
This weekend, we are revisiting the issue of the evidence we have for our faith and the truth of the Bible. We don’t have to operate on blind faith or be worried about scientific discoveries disproving the Bible. We can trust that God’s Word is true and that we have evidence to back it up.
This weekend, we will be focusing on adolescence. These years are a time of determining one’s identity and questioning the world around them. We’ll be taking a look at some common questions and misconceptions regarding student ministry and be reminded of the importance of reaching our teens. This weekend’s message is titled “PARENTING IQ: IDENTITY.”
This weekend, we will continue our study of marriage. I will be joined by my wife, Nicole, as we talk about what went wrong between Adam and Eve, the effects of the Fall on husbands and wives, and how we can recapture God’s design for marriage. The title of this weekend’s message is “OPERATION RESTORE PART TWO.”
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 will be looking at the beginnings of the world itself. Having examined the first day, we will turn to how the waters were separated and what that means. The book of Genesis contains in its first few lines the framework for the entire world. As we approach the second day of creation, we will see how God created the space He would later fill with life. This weekend’s message is titled “GROUNDWORK.”
This weekend, we are turning our attention to the beginning of creation. People can offer many different theories and ideas, but how does science’s account of the beginning of creation line up with what God says in His Word? The book of Genesis offers us a very detailed account of how God made the world around us. In understanding more about creation, we understand more about our Creator and His plan for us. The title of this weekend’s message is “GENESIS”.
This weekend, we are examining the relationship between science and Christianity. Many people believe that the two are often opposed to one another. Others worry that if you pursue scientific knowledge and discovery, it will shake the foundations of your faith. What we will learn from this weekend, though, is that science actually supports Christianity and gives evidence for what we believe. The title of this weekend’s message is “DISCOVER”.
This weekend, we are continuing our study of the canon of Scripture. There are many religions that either add to the canon of books that the church has traditionally considered inspired or mishandle the ones we do consider to be Scripture. How does understanding the canon of Scripture help us to better see which religions are inaccurate, even if they appear close in their beliefs? The title of this weekend’s message is “SACRED”.
This weekend, we are examining the canon of Scripture and looking at how the Bible compares to the writings of Buddhism. Buddhists ascribe to many different canons, but there is one biblical canon that believers uphold. Why does this matter? How did the canon come to be accepted? The title of this weekend’s message is “CANON”.
If you remember from last weekend, we are going to spend several weeks looking at the Bible and how we should handle God’s Word. This weekend, we are comparing the Bible to the holy books and sacred texts of other religions. Is the Bible different or is it just another religious text like any other? What puts the Bible in a class of its own? The title of this weekend’s message is “REVELATION”.
This weekend, we are taking a look at the Bible itself. Throughout the years, there has been much debate as to the canon of Scripture. How were the books included in our Bible chosen and how should we view those that were not included? God’s Word is perfect, but we must understand how it was originally compiled in order to defend it. The title of this weekend’s message is “AUTHORITY.”
This weekend, we will take a look at something that is regarded by many as a mystery: salvation. We talk about it a lot, sing about it, and even pray for it. But do we understand what is actually happening in the process of salvation? What does it truly mean for a person to “be saved”? The title of this weekend’s message is “THE ANATOMY OF SALVATION”.
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.”
In this weekend’s message, we will actually turn our attention to Psalm 34 and examine David’s words after his poor choices. They are a reminder to all generations that God rescues His people from trouble, even if that trouble is caused by our own hands. The title of this weekend’s message is “RESCUED”.
In our message this weekend, Peter begins to quote Psalm 34, relating David’s words to his listeners. In order to understand Peter’s use of Psalm 34, we must first understand the context of David’s life as he was writing. He made a series of poor decisions that left him to deal with the consequences. The title of this weekend’s message is “MISSTEP”.
This weekend, we will begin a series of messages that examine Peter’s encouragement to his readers, asking them to be of one mind. Unity is especially important when living in exile. As believers, we must function in unity in order to be effective, but to do that, you and I must pursue the mind of Christ. The title of this weekend’s message is “ONE MIND.”
