Christmas Is – Trust

December 4, 2016

Trust isn’t a word most people immediately associate with Christmas. But trust is part of faith– and faith is how we accept THE Christmas Present. So, what is trust? How do we trust– especially when we don’t FEEl trust? And how can we make trust a part of this Christmas celebration?

Christmas Is – Grace

November 27, 2016

To understand Christmas, we have to first understand that Christmas is Grace! But “grace” is a “church word” — a word that is used in church gatherings by people who rarely can define or explain it to each other, much less to those in the world around them. We need to understand grace — and the inherent link between Christmas and grace. Because Christmas is grace!

Obsession

Obsession typically has a negative connotation, but the truth is that it can be good or bad. Depending on how its used, it can be a driving force to bring us closer to God or a force that distances ourselves from Him and everyone else around us. It could cause us to sin. So what does the difference look like? Let’s take an inside look on what obsession looks like biblically.

Aftermath

November 13, 2016

Randy Christian

It’s extremely important how we behave after this election. To the Lord, to others, and to us. In fact, how we behave is either an act of worship to the Lord or an act of refusal to worship him. What’s the difference? We’ll explore that this week as we worship together and look at the “Aftermath”.

Prayer Service

November 6, 2016

Staff and Elders

Concerned about the election and what the future holds? The one thing we can do about it, that no one can take away, is pray! We are commanded to pray for our leaders, for others, and for peace. All of us who belong to Jesus need to start and finish with prayer! Join us for a special prayer service in which we will pray together for the leaders of this country, and for the gospel to be furthered through this situation.

Perspective

October 30, 2016

God promises several times in The Word that He will never give us more than we can handle, and that all things occur for the good. How, then, can we rationalize these facts when we face terrors such as cancer, war, death, and loss? It all boils down to perspective. We are humans, and, thus, we cannot see all that is happening or will happen. God is the only omnipresent being with the divine perspective. He knows all and sees all. This week, let us take the back seat and look at our lives through God’s perspective.

Keeping the Peace

October 23, 2016

Randy Christian

It is easy to combat others who disagree with out mindset and lifestyles, especially when those reactions come out during times of turmoil and fear. However, we are called to be loving neighbors and peacemakers to all. How do we do such a task when we entirely disagree with what another says or does? Join us to discover how to keep the peace by looking to our Savior as the divine example.

Celebrity

October 16, 2016

Randy Christian

We see the stars and the gossip flooding TMZ, magazines, and even the daily news, and we often think “it must be nice to be them” because, after all, they seem to have it all – good looks, money, and an important status. However, we also see the negative effects of the limelight and how it impacts their social wellbeing and faith, or often, the lack of it. Yet, we still want fame for ourselves. Join us as we discuss the biblical standpoint of fame, and how God wants his celebrities to represent Him.

Morality

October 9, 2016

Randy Christian

In general, the Christian body strives to maintain a sense of “good” and “morality” within their homes; however, sometimes that task becomes a bit more trying when it comes to morality within the world. We want to be difference makers, but in a world so different from The Kingdom, how are we to behave and represent the Lord? Sometimes, what is asked from us biblically and secularity are different; what do we do?

The Vote

October 2, 2016

Randy Christian

All we see on the television, hear about in the news, and read on Facebook is the big political race. This November, America will be electing a new president. With so many hot topics that each candidate is addressing, how is the Christian body supposed to address such heated situations with God in mind? Where are we even supposed to stand politically? Join us Sunday to find out.
