This weekend, we will lay a foundation for our understanding of brain development as a whole. Much more than just parenting, we as believers should work toward a biblical understanding of how our minds grow and mature. This will help us be better parents, mentors, counselors, and followers of God!
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.”
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 are beginning a brand new series focused on Christmas, titled “GREATER.” Through this series, we will focus on the society and political structure during the time of Jesus’ birth. Even though times change, people, situations, and politics remain the same. In this first message, we will take a look at the Roman Empire and how it was affected by Jesus’ birth. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN ROME.”
This weekend, we will examine one of the lowest points of Peter’s life and how Jesus responded to bring him back. After denying Jesus, Peter was disheveled, his boldness gone. Then Jesus brings him out of despair and restores his focus on the mission. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE RESTORATION.”
This weekend, as we near the election, we will be looking at critical issues that should impact the way we think and act. We should not be conformed to this world, but we are called to shape culture and push back against the darkness around us. The title of this weekend’s message is “DUAL CITIZEN.”
This weekend, we will be focusing on Proverbs 22:6. This is a well-known verse, but when times are stressful or difficult, we are quick to forget God’s promise when our children are trained up under godly instruction. The title of this weekend’s message is “PATHWAY.”
This weekend, we will take a look at the pillar of cloud and fire that led the Israelites. This supernatural guide not only showed them which way to go, but also offered them protection from their enemies. Through this, God reminded His people that He would protect and guide them even during difficult times. The title of this weekend’s message is “GUARDIAN.”
This weekend, we will explore the doctrine of prayer from Scripture. So many times in the Bible, God outlines for us the nature of prayer and the importance of talking with our Heavenly Father. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: DOCTRINE.”
This weekend, I want to talk about more than just biological fathers. Throughout Scripture, we see godly men investing in and mentoring younger men. Perhaps the most famous example is that of Paul and Timothy, whom he refers to as his son in the faith. This Father’s Day weekend, I will be preaching a message on these adopted fathers who help guide us spiritually.
This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the barren fig tree. A tree that isn’t bearing fruit is really quite pointless. However, in the parable, the keeper of the vineyard sees the possibility of fruit coming from the tree with just a little care. The title of the message this weekend is “PRODUCE.”
Our plans may fail. Our plans may get disrupted. Our plans may have to be revised. But, God’s Gospel Plan does not fail, will not get disrupted, and it’s not open to revision. The Plan of Salvation is the only hope for every man, woman, boy, or girl. Today it can happen for you and change your life forever.Which plan are you trusting in for your salvation? Your Plan? The Church Plan? The Denomination Plan? The wrong plan of salvation will cost you your soul. Are you truly saved? Repent, Believe, and Follow Jesus Christ.
This weekend, we are celebrating the Lord’s Supper. This is always such a powerful time of worship as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. However, communion can often become just another ritual; something we do because we always have. This weekend, we will seek to understand the purpose behind communion and it’s significance for us. We will be reminded that Christ is our “SUSTENANCE.”
When it comes to our salvation, we have to count the cost. We have to ask ourselves, “What all am I willing to give up in order to be saved?” Please don’t misunderstand. Giving up doesn’t save us. Salvation from start to finish is the work of God. It’s only by grace through faith in the cross of Jesus and the empty tomb that we are saved. But, being willing to give up everything reveals whether or not we understand the gospel. It demonstrates how sincere and how committed we are to follow Christ our king.
This weekend, we are focused on the kingdom of God. Many times, we think of God’s kingdom as a future reality, something that has yet to come. However, when Jesus came, he inaugurated the kingdom of God here on earth. Through His teaching and His life, He taught His disciples how to live a life fitting of God’s kingdom. The message this weekend is titled “KINGDOM HERE.”
This weekend, we are starting a brand new series. Before you can be a disciple, you must believe in Jesus and trust Him for salvation. At the heart of everything that a disciple does, there must be a desire to see the lost come to faith. Over the next few weeks, we will be talking about salvation and recapturing a desire to see the lost around us believe for the first time. This series is titled “FIRST, BELIEVE.”
We should never lose sight of the fact that “We Stand By God’s Grace.”
It is up to us to step out of our comfort zones and understand the philosophy and worldview of people around us and then communicate the gospel to them in a way they will understand.
