    In order to truly accept one another we must do so because of Christ: because we have been accepted by Christ.

    Commitment One Day at a Time
    Psalm 118:24, Hebrews 12:1-2
     
    The wisdom of addiction recovery is true for each area of our spiritual development; we commit to overcoming sin by God's grace and seizing the opportunities of the present one day at a time.
     
    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 Together
    Series: ALIVE
    Ephesians 4:1-16
     
    We are most ALIVE when we are in community with other followers of Christ, united but not uniform.
     
    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.

I am willing to forgive and willing to restore and willing to give a new life and a new beginning, to each and every one of you."
