Growing Pains: Part 2 Consumer to Contributor: Matthew 19:16-22

What are you living for? 

What gives your life meaning?

Is it possible to have money, power, and morality, and yet still be missing something?

This Sunday we continue our sermon series, Growing Pains, and we talk about one of the biggest barriers that keeps us from growing and living the bold life Jesus Christ has for us.

A New Year always marks a time for change. Why is change so difficult? Often we resist real change because it always involves pain. Growth hurts. Growing Pains is a sermon series that will look at pushing through the pain to experience the important changes we need to make during this new season.

Want to survive the Christmas family get-together? This Sunday we conclude our Christmas sermon series called Center Peace. It’s that time of year for the family to travel in from all over and gather around the Christmas table. Each person is not only bearing gifts, but each one is bringing the dysfunctions that plague every family. This message talks about how you can have peace in your relationships this Christmas.

Detox from Religion: Part 4 The Reverse of the Curse: Jesus: Genesis 3:14-15; 21-24 & Acts 2:21, 41-47 & Galatians 6:1
Sunday, December 2, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

This Sunday we conclude our series, Detox from Religion. We have been talking about detoxing from religion and how God created us to be lovers, not judgers. However, what do we do when we see sin damaging the people we love? How can we have a conversation about it without being judgmental?! God can reverse the curse from judgment to love, and we will learn how.

Detox from Religion: Part 3 The Religion of the Fall: Judgmentalism: Genesis 3:7-13 & Luke 15: 1-2, 11-32

Did you know that religious people can be just as lost as irreligious people? We will look at a famous teaching of Jesus that unpacks this for us as we continue our sermon series, Detox from Religion.

Detox from Religion: Part 2 The Sin of the Forbidden Tree: Pride: Genesis 2 & 3 & Matthew 9:9-12 & James 4:11-12
Sunday, November 18, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

We were created to love, so why do we judge? Ever think about that? 

In the book by David Kinnaman and  Gabe Lyons called unchristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity…and Why It Matters, they found that 87% of Millennial Non-Christians think Christians are judgmental. Why is this number so high? Why is this our tendency?

This Sunday, we explore why we have such a hunger and compulsion to judge others, in our sermon series, Detox from Religion. 

48:22
Detox from Religion: Part 1 The Goal of Creation: Love: Genesis 1:26-27 & Matthew 22:34-40
Sunday, November 11, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

Do you need a detox from religion? Even though Jesus Christ did not come to give us another religion, too many of his followers seem to be addicted to religion, resulting in a hopeless legalism that burdens and a harsh judgmentalism that wounds. It is time for a cleanse from the toxins of religion which will produce a healthy life of love and freedom in Jesus Christ. This Sunday we begin our series, Detox from Religion.
