Learning to Walk…all over again

Pastor Amanda will be speaking this Sunday and will share the message, Learning to Walk…all over again. With our first birth, we learned to walk—usually within the first 12-18 months. Most were dependent on the external hands of mom or dad. But in our second birth (as a Christ follower) we are given a new posture and a new dependency …

Freedom Through Forgiveness

We conclude this teaching series on forgiveness with the message, Freedom Through Forgiveness.  We’ll discuss once again that there is nothing that can be offered but the cross of Christ. For the cross is the place where we see the ultimate expression of the heart of God. In preparation for Sunday’s message, please read and reflect on John 20:1-23.    

The Reality of Forgiveness

This Sunday we’ll talk about the damage caused by an unforgiving spirit. It is incredible – it wreaks havoc not only on us but on every relationship in our lives – and our relationship with God. The Reality of Forgiveness is found in Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:35, “This is how My heavenly Father will treat each of you unless …

Responsible Forgiveness Part 2

In Part 2 of this message, we’ll continue in the book of Matthew, specifically Matthew 18:15-20.  Forgiveness is messy, and a kingdom value the world cannot understand. When we have been hurt, we don’t want to be hurt again – we want to get even. Jesus shows us a better way – the commitment to forgive, and the pathway to seek …

Forgiveness – A Life Without Regret

This week we dive further into the topic of forgiveness again this week with the message, A Life WithoutRegret. Through the story of Peter, we’ll see that if you get close enough to God, you will see yourself the way God sees you. Forgiveness is real when it comes from God, but it doesn’t become real in our lives until we learn …

Freedom Through Forgiveness (Easter Sunday)

Pastor Terry begins a new teaching series, Freedom Through Forgiveness, with the message, Homecoming!  Without the resurrection, there would be no opportunity for you and me to receive forgiveness from God, our Heavenly Father. The resurrection is God’s plan to forgive us completely and to provide the way to experience freedom through forgiveness.    

Between Parades

In the message, Between Parades, we’ll look at how Jesus entered what we know as Holy Week as the honored figure in a historic parade – He left the week crucified by the same people.  We will also look at our own personal response to this man called Jesus – and His invitation to follow Him.    

Eyes of Faith
