Radical Sayings of Jesus

Oh, no! He didn’t really say that? What in the world did Jesus mean when He said …?

No one challenges us like Jesus! His words jolt us to see our world our God and ourselves in new ways!

Join us this September as we take a look at four of the radical things Jesus said and their implications for our lives today!

Life can never be the same when we follow the Radical Sayings of Jesus!

The First Person You Meet

First impressions make lasting impressions.

As Jesus instructs you through His parables, the first person you meet in the parable is often the key person of the story. Having heard the teachings of Christ, you are to go out to love your neighbor as the first person you meet, making a lasting impression on them with God’s love.

Join us for our sermon series,
“The First Person You Meet”
this summer as we take the teachings of Christ and apply them to daily life.

The Spirit Never Sleeps

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you,
and you will be my witnesses…
” Acts 1:8

Jesus promised the gift of the Holy Spirit would come
to teach and remind people of all things Jesus said and did
(John 14:26)

Is the Spirit at work today?
How do we recognize it?

During this Easter season we will travel through the book of Acts in our preaching series to hear how the Spirit worked through the first disciples: igniting people’s hearts into faith and celebration, witness and acts of service. The same Spirit that worked through Paul’s message and the same Spirit that settled as tongues of fire on the disciples heads is the same Spirit that works in you as you receive God’s gifts each morning. It is the same power that is delivered when you share God’s love with those around you.

Join us Sunday mornings April 27 to June 15 to hear how the Spirit Never Sleeps!

Beyond Bumper Stickers

The Bible appears to be a huge and imposing book.
Too often, Christians are content to reduce their faith to a few Bible passages that could fit on a bumper sticker.

There is so much more to the Bible than that!

Hear how the Bible tells one big story through many smaller stories about God the Creator pursuing, rescuing, and transforming His people for the restoration of all mankind through Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Go Beyond Bumper Stickers!

Christ: More than Enough

Jesus and…
So often it seems as though the world and our sinful human nature what to
add to the Good News of Jesus.

We want Him to be a program we can follow,
ten steps to happiness or financial freedom. 

Or we mix in other religions or “religious practices”
to create a more “complete” Jesus.

But Christ is more than enough!

Come hear messages of Christ’s sufficiency for us based on the book of Colossians
August 11th to September 1st.

Colossians Chapter 1

Colossians Chapter 2

Colossians Chapter 3

Colossians Chapter 4

At the Center: Living the New Life of the Cross

What is at the center of your life?
Family
Friends
Career
Money
Entertainment
Technology
Christ
Does what is at the center
make a difference in all other areas of life?

The Apostle Paul saw that when we are not in Christ, when we are not hearing the Good News of Jesus’ death for sinners and a life of thankfulness flowing from the cross, then we are not centered and problems arise.

Listen to the full sermon series as we walked through the Book of Galatians and see that there is a New Life from the Cross of Jesus.
