All In

July 8 – 28, 2012

Jesus lived an ALL IN life…He put it ALL on the line. And when it came down to it, He gave it ALL so you can have it ALL. So why do so many live unsatisfying, half-hearted lives? Where is the satisfaction, the joy, the fulfillment in that? In this series we will examine what Jesus called the most important commandment in all of Scripture and answer the question, “What happens when a group of people puts it all on the line and goes ALL IN?”

In Dependence

July 1, 2012

Every 4th of July we celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Independence Day is a huge celebration of national pride and of an historic event that shapes how we live even 236 years later. National independence is synonymous with the United States, and personal independence has become an American ideal. But is this ideal the real deal? Did God create us to live as independent operators or rugged individualists? To answer this question we open Psalm 62 to see what King David has to say about living In Dependence.

NEHEMIAH

May 20th to June 24th, 2012

Nehemiah had a dream…a dream to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. In the process of building, he taught an entire nation how to build another dream…the dream of living life to the fullest and being all God created and called them to be. His lessons are as applicable today as they were then. We will unpack them, study them, and learn to apply them as we follow Nehemiah and build the dreams God planted in each of us.

According to Jim

April 15th to May 13th, 2012

The book of James was written by the person who might have known Jesus best – his half brother, James. James focuses his writing less on the explanation of Jesus’ message and more on living as followers of Christ.  His practical instructions for living has withstood the scrutiny of generations and remains as valid and timely today as the day he penned them. Find out what James says to you in this teaching series, “According to Jim”.

3M’s – three sticky subjects

February 5th to March 18th, 2012

Life is full of sticky situations…those scenarios that leave us confused and conflicted about what to do.  We don’t know how to respond to these sticky situations because we are filled with conflicting emotions and information.  Where do we go to get unstuck?  The Bible gives clear direction for most sticky situations.  It is the “user’s guide” for our lives, given to us by God.  It can help you unstick the conflict and make sound decisions.

the rest of GOD

January 8th to January 29th, 2012

When God created the heavens and the earth He did it in six days then, the Bible says, he rested. Six days of work and a day of rest. This was the first Sabbath. The fourth commandment instructs God’s followers to keep the Sabbath tradition. But most Christians today do not honor God’s commandment to rest. Because of this we are a people living hectic, anxious, stressed out lives. We have become infatuated with busy-ness, but we do not value rest.

NEW!

January 1st, 2012

It’s a new year and it seems like every business out there is advertising some kind of product or service to help people achieve their new year resolutions. A common phrase is “new year, new you.” But most have discovered becoming a new you is not as easy as turning the page on the calendar. Most have made many new year resolutions only to discover the resolve fades quickly and the new wears off. Fortunately, the Bible has something to say about the idea of ‘new’ and even of becoming a ‘new you’.

The Gift

Christmas Eve Service, December 24th, 2011

It seems like every couple of years there is one particular item that becomes “the gift”. Red Ryder BB guns, Cabbage Patch dolls, Tickle Me Elmos…you never know what it will be, but you know that when it happens it is nearly impossible to get your hands on “the gift.” Fortunately this is not true of the ultimate “the gift” which has been around for thousands of years, is not a fad or trend, and has never gone out of style. Jesus is “the gift” God gave to mankind. In Him we find a King like none before or since, the High Priest we need to represent us to God and God to us, and the Savior who paid the penalty for our sins so we can exist eternally in community with God. That is what Christmas is all about. It’s what Christmas has always been about. Not presents, but His presence because Jesus is “The Gift”.

3 Gifts

December 4th, 2011

The first Christmas gifts ever given were delivered to baby Jesus thousands of years ago. Wise men came from the east, bringing with them three gifts of great value – gold, frankincense, and myrrh. They presented their gifts and faded anonymously from the pages of Scripture. But the gifts are their story, their legacy. These gifts were not only valuable to Jesus and his family at that time, but they bring great value to those who are willing to do a little digging, a little research to discover there is more to these 3 gifts than meets the eye.

thx :)

November 27th, 2011

Every November, Americans set aside one day to express gratitude and thankfulness. History tells us our Thanksgiving Day tradition began with native Americans and the Pilgrims who were thankful for God’s provision in the new world. But what does God have to say about thankfulness? Is it a once-a-year deal or should thanks be given more often? How should thanks be given? Who and what should we be thankful for? And who do we thank?
