Enough
Sunday, May 1, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being little and 10 being much, how satisfied are you right now with life? 

Ever feel like you don’t have enough? Enough money, enough patience, enough energy, enough contentment?

This Sunday, May 1, we  talk about having...enough.

The Cross and the Crescent: Part Four: Response to Islam
Sunday, April 24, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

Muslims live in our neighborhoods, sit by us at work, and attend school with our children. Some Muslims are also responsible for continuing evil acts of terrorism throughout our world.

What is our response?

This Sunday, April 24, we conclude our sermon series, The Cross and the Crescent and discuss how, as Christians, we are to respond to Muslims. 

The Cross and the Crescent: Part Three: Beliefs of Christianity and Islam
Sunday, April 17, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

Do you know what Muslims believe? Do you know what Christians are supposed to believe? According to Barna Research, 81% of Christians in America lack a biblical worldview. Do you know the beliefs of the Christian faith? 

This Sunday, April 17th, we continue our sermon
 series, The Cross and the Crescent and talk about basic Christian and Islamic beliefs and how we are different. 

The Cross and the Crescent: Part Two: Contemporary Islam
Sunday, April 10, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

We often hear people assert that Islam is a religion of peace, yet terrorists commit evil acts in the name of Allah. What is going on?

This Sunday, April 10th, we continue our sermon
 series, The Cross and the Crescent and look at the state of contemporary Islam. 

The Cross and the Crescent: Part One: Classical Islam
Sunday, April 3, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

We hear about Muslims every day in the news, but most of us know very little about them. What is Islam? How is it different from Christianity? Are all Muslims violent? How are Christians supposed to respond to Muslims? 

This Sunday, April 3, we begin a new sermon series, The Cross and the Crescent, and look at some of the basics concerning what Islam is. 

History's Mystery
Sunday, March 27, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

An Easter message about celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Recovery Road: Part Nine: Yield Myself to God to Bring This Good News to Others

This Sunday we conclude our sermon series, Recovery Road. We talk about a final and key step in recovery. 

Missions Math
Sunday, March 13, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

This Sunday, we take a break from our Recovery Road series. Today's message will remind all of us to leave our comfort zones and go out to pursue what God has called us to do. 

Recovery Road: Part Eight: Reserve a Daily Time with God for Self-Examination and Seeking His Will
Sunday, March 6, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

One of the common challenges of recovery is relapse. How can we guard against it? This Sunday we address this topic as we continue our series, Recovery Road. 


Recovery Road: Part Seven: Evaluate All My Relationship Offering Forgiveness and Amends
Sunday, February 28, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

What do I do if I have hurt someone? What about when someone has hurt me? Part of recovery is dealing with the baggage of previous hurts.

We address healing hurts, as we continue our sermon series, Recovery Road. 

Recovery Road: Part Six: Voluntarily Submit to Every Change to God
Sunday, February 21, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

Mother Teresa once said that in India people are starving physically, but in America, they're starving emotionally.  We all have a spiritual hunger and thirst inside of us, so we use phrases like "My life is empty." How can we be filled?

We answer this question this Sunday, February 21, as we continue our sermon series, Recovery Road.

Recovery Road: Part Five: Openly Examine and Confess My Faults
Sunday, February 14, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

Guilt is universal. It strikes people of all ages everywhere. No one is exempt. Some experts call guilt the "number-one killer," surpassing cancer, heart failure, accidents, and addictions simply because guilt is a major contributor to all of these problems. We definitely struggle with guilt. How do we find the exit ramp for the guilt trip?

This Sunday we continue our sermon series, Recovery Road and discuss what Jesus has to say about purity and experiencing cleansing from our guilt. 

Recovery Road: Part Four: Consciously Choose to Commit to Christ
Sunday, February 7, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

One of the results of playing God and trying to control so many areas of our lives (and other people's lives!) is that we become weighted down, burdened, and exhausted. 

This Sunday we continue our sermon series, Recovery Road, and we discuss what Jesus has to say about control, and what to do about the burdens we carry. 

Recovery Road: Part Three: Earnestly Believe in God and His Power
Sunday, January 31, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

We all have regrets and hurts from our past. Sometimes, they hold us back and keep us from living effectively in the present and from facing confidently the future. How do we move forward?

This Sunday we get guidance from Jesus as we continue our sermon series called Recovery Road. 

Recovery Road: Part Two: Realize I Am Not God and Am Powerless
Sunday, January 24, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

There are over 500,000 different recovery groups in America. We all have issues, and many of us are getting help for them! We hope you will take advantage of the series we are doing at Life Church called Recovery Road

This Sunday, January 24, we look at the first principle of recovery.

Recovery Road: Part One: Do I Want to Exit?
Sunday, January 17, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

Alcoholism. Divorce. Overworking. Grief. Drug Abuse. Codependency. Overeating. Sexual Addiction.

Many of us have run into painful problems on the road of life. We often feel stuck in dysfunctional directions and struggle to change lanes.

This Sunday, January 17, we start a new sermon series, Recovery Road, where we will offer a Christ-centered route from rut to recovery so you can overcome the hurts, habits, and hang ups of life.

Plugged In
Sunday, January 10, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

What If?
Sunday, January 3, 2016 :: Keith Abbott

Another year is in the books and a new one is beginning. If you are like most people, you look back over 2015 with a myriad of emotions. There is joy over the celebrations, sadness over the tragedies, a feeling of satisfaction over opportunities seized and regret over the ones lost.

What if this time next year, there were fewer regrets? This Sunday we look at some core habits that can curb some of our the regrets.

Why Did God Become One of Us? Part Two: Relating
Sunday, December 13, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey

In life we go through trials and temptations. Do you think Jesus understands what we go through?

This Sunday we continue our Christmas sermon series called, Why Did God Become One of Us? and talk about what Christmas means when it comes to God entering our everyday worlds.

Why Did God Become One of Us? Part One: Revealing
Sunday, December 6, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey

We begin our new Christmas sermon series this week. Christmas is the time we celebrate Jesus Christ coming to us. But why would God leave the blessings of heaven to live in this broken world? This week we try to answer that question.
