The Apostle John writes, “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:30). From a wedding to a funeral, we’ll examine seven signs offered by Jesus that are recorded in the Gospel of John. From water turned into wine to a dead man coming out from his tomb, these signs will point us to the glory and grace of Christ.

Every new year, we make decisions about who we want to be. We make resolutions; we set goals. Often, these goals are focused on ourselves. Losing weight, saving money — even the best goals are often inherently self-centered. Christ did not call us to live that way. To live the life God has for us, we must be willing to reject our own comfort for the good of others.

It’s not easy, and it sure isn’t comfortable. But when you deny yourself, God can do so much more.

This series will be very focused on shaking people’s perceptions of Christian living and motivate them to deny themselves and go all-in on following Jesus, with the full knowledge that while it won’t make their lives easier, there is joy in the journey.

  • When you serve more, you take less.
  • When you give more, you need less.
  • When you thank more, you want less.
  • When there’s more of God, you’re Selfless.

There’s a reason why certain stories, certain films, even certain cartoons, become classics.  It’s not by accident that some stories are here today and gone tomorrow . . . while others endure.  Now sometimes that reason involves clever marketing; sometimes that reason involves some other anomaly … but more often than not, it’s because the story itself is …is so right.

Frosty the SnowmanRudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerThe Grinch, and Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town are among the classic cartoons of Christmas.  Each one tells a story that addresses situations we face in life.  God speaks to these situations through His Word, the Bible.

The December sermon series, “Classic Christmas Cartoons,” will include these stories as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus once again.  You’ll never look at these Christmas classics in the same way again.

Summer is the time when most of us get an opportunity for vacation or at least have a less hectic schedule that allows for more free time. With the opportunity to relax, a great leisure activity is reading. It’s been said that, “reading a good book is like taking a journey,” which is a fun aspect of getting into a book. Reading also helps a person learn and grow.

This summer, we are exploring a sermon series that is focused on a good book…Romans. In fact, many theologians including Martin Luther would say that it is the best book ever written because it so clearly articulates the gospel. It is rich with theological and doctrinal insights as well and was pivotal in the history of the Reformation. While that may not necessarily entice you to read Romans, perhaps this might: Romans was written at a time similar to the one in which we live today. In this great book, followers of Jesus are given insight on how to live and even thrive in an environment that can be hostile to Christianity. In it, God gives insights on how to deal with truth, suffering, government, evil, salvation, and many other things as well.

Open the Book of Romans with us and join in on the journey of discovering what God has to say to us in it. We’ll be working through approximately one chapter each week from June through October.
