Taking Your Essential Spiritual Vitamins: Part One: Great Faith
Sunday, August 2, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey

What if you could have a healthy and strong faith? Imagine how different your outlook on life would be if you had absolute confidence that God was really with you. 

Imagine how differently you would respond to difficulties, temptations, and even good things if you knew with certainty that God was actively involved in your life?

In other words, imagine what it would be like to have great faith?

How do we grow our faith? Pastor Brian begins a new sermon series, that will overview the essential spiritual vitamins that need to be a part of our lives for us to have a healthy and strong faith.

God Moments
Sunday, July 26, 2015 :: Mike Kaply

It seems like when we get older, we start forgetting things. Where we placed our keys. Birthdays. Anniverseries. Sometimes we can even forget the things that God has done in our life.

This Sunday, we explore how we can make our memories of what God has done for us never fade.

Whole Gospel
Sunday, July 12, 2015 :: Keith Abbott

It's estimated that more than 4,000 churches in the United States close their doors every year. Between 2010 and 2012, half of all churches in the U.S. did not add a single new member. Each year 2.7 million church members fall into inactivity. Why is this? In the New Testament we see explosive growth. In today's church, no so much. Could it be that the church is only embracing half the Gospel?

This Sunday, we explore some of the shifts that must happen for the church to live out the whole Gospel.

Complete
Sunday, July 12, 2015 :: Chad Wright

The Bible says we are complete in Christ (Col. 2: 9-10 NKJV). Do you feel complete? As Christians we can often struggle with what it means to be complete in Christ and we end up in an exhausting loop of trying to earn God's love. This Sunday we explore how to get off that endless treadmill of trying to justify and learn to accept the gift He gave us. 

Living in God's Strength
Sunday, July 5, 2015 :: Tim Schlung

We've all seen it happen. Someone we know who was once following God so closely seems to give up. They burn out on the Christian life, and now they're living in a way that's indistinguishable from those who don't have a relationship with God. Each and everyone of us is in danger of this happening to us. Why does this happen and what can we do to prevent it? Today we explore God's plan for helping us to continue in our walk with him.

Real Men Love Jesus?

This Changes Everything: Part Nine: Lostness
Sunday, June 7, 2015 :: Tim Schlung

A generous estimate concludes that there are nearly 2.2 billion Christians in the world. This is a seemingly impressive number. However, with a total of 7.1 billion people in the world this means that there are still nearly 5 billion people who are lost, and in need of a Savior.

Sunday, May 31, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey

Sunday, April 19, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey

Every day nearly 19,000 children around our world die from preventable sickness and hunger. God is concerned about this. Over 2,000 verses in the Bible address his care for the poor. In our affluent culture, what do we think about poor?

This Changes Everything: Part One: Embrace the Tension
Sunday, April 12, 2015 :: Brian Lightsey
