    Pray for One Another
    Series: One Another
    James 5:16
     
    Intercessory prayer is, quite simply the prayer of one person for someone else. When we pray for others, we are taking our eyes off ourselves and standing in the gap for another person. We are going in the very presence of the Father on behalf of another.

    Mercy One Day at a Time
    Lamentations 3:22-23
     
    We must learn to lean into the fresh mercies of God each day to erase shame and approach the day with a blank slate.
     
    If there’s one thing a pandemic has taught us, it’s that our entire world can change in a day. Even as we transition out of quarantine mode, we realize planning, anticipating, and committing to events is a rather nebulous concept. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? A gift of these last few months has been to force us into a Biblical rhythm that has been discovered effective in many areas of life, like counseling, health, addictions, or relationships: living one day at a time. This concept oozes from the pages of Scripture in direct and clear phrases and in the concept of a Creator and Sustainer God. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? God does. The reason we can live one day at a time is because we worship a God who lives outside of time. This sermon series aims to relieve the burden of those trying to live years, months, or even weeks at a time, to focus our hearts on the present, to inspire us to seize opportunity, and to magnify God’s greatness by increasing our trust in Him.

    ALIVE and Armored
    Series: ALIVE
    Ephesians 6:10-20
     
    If we are going to be ALIVE, we are going to be opposed by the forces that steal life; we'll need God-given, spiritual armor to protect life.
     
    Caught up in the conveyor belt of busyness, we often find ourselves with a posture of survival. Let's just make it through the day. But why just survive when we can be ALIVE? Jesus says that He came to give us life more abundant, so what's keeping us from experiencing it? When we forget who we are and why we're here, we miss out on so much of what God designed for us as truly life. Paul writes his letter to the Ephesians to remind them of their identity in Christ and their purpose for Christ so that they could know what it means through the Gospel to be truly ALIVE. In this sermon series, we'll explore the first five chapters of Ephesians as Paul shares the truths of the Holy Spirit's work to unite us to Christ and orient our lives towards His glory. We will see and savor the message that when we were dead in our sins, God in His grace made us truly ALIVE.

    Series: Sermons

    The best thing about Easter isn't some life changing invention or event. The best thing about Easter is a world changing action. It is the resurrection of Jesus Christ who died for our sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead three days later.

    "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." -AW Tozer. The words, "Be still, and know that I am God," mean next to nothing to the self-confident, bustling worshiper in the busy 21st century. If we are not constantly renewing our minds to think rightly about who God is, we will substitute the once lofty and deep truths of our faith for entertainment and general feel-goodery. If we are longing to be anchored in the truth of who God is among the waves of this world, we must know truly who God is from His Word. This series will examine several key attributes of God so that we can know the One who knows us completely; so that Advent can have a God-sized vision for the future.

    Resolve 2020 Vision – Church
    John 17:22-23
     
    Building unity in the church during a transitional year by hearing from our Session in a panel format.
     
    To resolve means to decide firmly on a course of action. We often find ourselves with plenty of resolve and resolutions at the beginning of each year. But only 64% of resolutions last beyond January and only 46% last longer than six months. Where does all that resolve go? In this sermon series, we'll examine some of the ways God calls us to resolve in different spheres of our lives: individually, in our families, in our communities, and in our church. With simple and focused resolutions, we'll call upon God to give us the resolve to see a 20/20 vision accomplished in 2020.
