Christ is First

This week, we’ll continue the Still Unfinished journey as we talk about how Christ is First, before all things.  Again I’ll share from the book of Colossians regarding how we must bring to God our FIRST and BEST because He first loved us by giving His Best in Christ Jesus. In preparation, please read Colossians 1:15-29. If you’ve got an Unfinished t-shirt, please …

A Pastor’s Prayer

This week, we’ll begin the teaching series, StillUnfinished, as I share A Pastor’s Prayer.  Speaking from Colossians 1:1-14,  I’ll speak about the joy found in Jesus. My ultimate prayer for you is that you would know the fullness of JOY that comes in putting Jesus first in your life. Please read and reflect on this passage in preparation for Sunday’s message. Still Unfinished …

YOUR STORY

This Sunday, Missions Day, we’ll conclude the series with the message, YOUR Story. There is a missional impulse in all followers of Jesus Christ. God has directed us – inspired us – envisioned us with what could be and should be – to take the Good News of Jesus Christ – the Way of Jesus – outside the walls of the church …

Our Story

There was a time when the Spirit of God came upon men and women at specific moments in time for a specific purpose to advance God’s Kingdom. But God is now doing something new – He is writing New Stories – OUR Stories – and today everyone is invited to receive Christ and to be filled with the Spirit of …

Defiant Hope

This Sunday we welcome guest teacher, Ryan Cagno, who will share the message, Defiant Hope. In Advent, we remember and celebrate the coming of Jesus into the world, and the hope that brings. Yet even as we celebrate this, the reality is our world and our lives are often messy and broken. What kind of hope can we claim in the …

The Habit of Friendship

This Sunday we’ll conclude the series with a message on the Habit of Friendship. It’s from friends that God gives us the people in our life who will give us Godly counsel. When we are serious about the habit of friendship, we are very intentional about the friends we make – and the places we go to make friends. The Habit of Friendship …

The Habit of Generosity

This Sunday, we’ll dive into the Habit of Generosity. It’s a Biblical principle, straight from the mouth of Jesus. If you want to make God a priority in your life – if you want to love God more – you don’t do it by just saying I’m going to make God a priority in my heart, and then maybe that priority …

The Habit of Prayer

This Sunday we’ll talk about the Habit of Prayer. Prayer is an easy habit to begin, because prayer is simply communicating with God. As we develop this habit, spiritual growth results – and our prayers start to sound different. Your prayers have a different feel to them as you begin to connect with God in a new and exciting way. …

The Habit of Bible Study

This Sunday, we’ll begin the new teaching series, School’s In Session:  Disciplined Habits Help Me Become a Fully-Devoted Follower of Jesus.  In the message, The Habit of Bible Study, we’ll learn that there is no habit as foundational to our spiritual growth than the study of God’s Word.  When we talk about the Bible, we believe that this is God’s inspired …

Unshakeable Hope

Unshakeable Hope, from Psalm 93. Our hope is in God alone – not our experience – our technology – our relationships – our wealth. As we heard from Psalm 91, God will protect those who trust in Him, no matter what we are going through. God is our ONLY hope – we worship a God who is in the process …
