RESURRECTION

Without the RESURRECTION, Jesus becomes merely another Jewish teacher with some good ideas. Next Sunday Pastor Terry will look at the Gospel of John 20, to show both the historicity of Jesus’ RESURRECTION, and the LIFE it brings. For if it is not true, then as the Apostle Paul put it so well in 1 Corinthians 15:14: “If Christ has …

DEATH

  The sermon will lean heavily on the Romans 5:6-21 passage, which is rich with material. It addresses the symmetry between the sin of one man (Adam) leading to the death of all, and the sacrifice of one man (Jesus) leading to the salvation of all. It also addresses how the sacrifice of the Cross meets us while we were …

LIFE

Pastor Terry continues the Focus series next week as he looks at the amazing account in John 13 of Jesus washing the disciple’s feet. We get a hint into what this means for us today when Jesus says in vs. 35 “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples.” Join us next week …

PEOPLE

Pastor Ryan continues to FOCUS on the PEOPLE of God. Early in the biblical story, God’s good world was broken by human sin. But lest we think God twiddled his thumbs for a few millennia, waiting for Jesus to come and save us, in week 4 we will dive into discovering what exactly God was doing in the Old Testament. …

SIN

Genesis 3 Romans 3:9-23 5:12-21 Pastor Ryan  continues FOCUS, taking a look at the topic of SIN. God created a good world, and humans in his image, so…what happened?! The world we look at certainly doesn’t seem good, and there seems to be something fundamentally wrong with human beings. Together we’ll look at how the Bible makes sense of the …

CREATION

Genesis 1-2. Human beings are the pinnacle of God’s creation, created not because He needed us but because He wanted to be in community with us – and to involve us in tending to His creation. All human beings are lovingly made in the image of God, and are therefore created with both the capacity for community and the responsibility …

JESUS

There is a lot of confusion these days about…everything, and not least of all about Christianity. What’s it about, really? What are followers of Jesus supposed to believe? How could those beliefs possibly make sense in 2019, in a world so vastly different from the world of the Bible? And how do we go about articulating those beliefs in a …

Our Mission & Core Values

This Sunday we will look at an outline of the church that will focus our attention on three important aspects for a healthy church family: Community, Cause, and Corporation. Now ideally, the church needs balance in all three areas, for we know that the consequences are high when the church is out of balance. And we want to be this …

Daniel – Faith Under Pressure

We return this Sunday to the overarching theme of the book of Daniel: in spite of appearances, God is in control! The story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den is one of the best–known Bible stories, loved by young and old alike. This story will show the comfort provided to followers of Jesus who find themselves in situations beyond their …

Daniel – Faithful in a Faithless World

What does it mean for followers of Jesus to stay faithful in a world that is increasingly hostile to the Christian faith? Next Sunday Pastor Terry will look at the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as they declare their faithfulness no matter the result of   persecution – deliverance or death. They will not give in to the evil powers …
