One Crazy Farmer

June 30 at 10:30 am 

 

Mark 4:1-9 and Ephesians 17-18

In this parable from Mark, Jesus tells about a farmer who sows seed in some strange places where it’s unlikely to grow, but the seed that does grow produces an amazing yield.  The point is that God reaches out to everyone, and those who respond experience amazing transformation, which the Ephesian passage describes in further detail.

 

Going Through the Motions

(Tent Series)

Our hope is to have vibrant and alive faith. Yet, try as we might, it’s easy to end up going through the motions in our spiritual lives.  Sometimes, without even realizing it, we can slip into living our spiritual lives on autopilot, falling into tradition and habit, doing what we think we ought to do, what others expect from us, or simply trying to appease God rather than to really know and love Him. With this series, we’ll seek to look at some of the foundational concepts of faith with fresh eyes and open hearts to avoid ending up just going through the motions.

RECENT SERIES

Esther: God Behind the Scenes

Esther is the only book in the Bible that doesn't mention God. On the surface, God seems absent from this story. Sadly, that's a familiar idea for many of us. Sometimes, we may feel like God is absent from our lives and world. But the story of Esther reveals that God is always present behind the scenes, often working with great power, even when He may seem albescent to us. Esther is the story of God's loving and sometimes hidden providence, the truth that He is over all things working out His will, and the amazing truth that he uses ordinary, flawed people to accomplish His plans. In the end, through a series of stunning reversals, we find that God is definitely not absent but is, in fact, the central character in this story and that He is always at work for the good of His people and for His glory.

Encounters with Jesus

Throughout the Gospels, people had amazing encounters with Jesus. These were ordinary people who were forever changed by their encounters with Him. With this series, as we walk through the season of Lent, we'll see how these people were changed by Jesus and recognize that through our own encounters with Jesus, He can change us, too.  With this series, we will also refocus our hearts and minds on Jesus, on who he was, what he taught, and the meaning of his death, as we prepare to celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Prayer Matters

As we move into the new year, we'll begin a new series of messages called "Prayer Matters" because prayer really does matter a great deal. Also, with this series, we will take up different important matters concerning prayer.  Prayer is one of the most foundational pieces of a spiritual life, and yet so many people, even long-time believers, often seem to struggle with it. This series is meant to help dig deeply into the core elements of prayer, like what prayer is, why we should pray, and how to pray effectively.  Each message will move from the basics to deeper places, providing useful insights from scripture for those who are new to prayer, as well as those with developed prayer lives.

Messy Christmas

Advent 2024

The first Christmas was messy: an unwed mother, a father thinking of leaving, a child born in a stable, and a birth announcement to lowly shepherds.  The first Christmas was messy because life is messy.  Christmas isn't about a picture-perfect moment; it's about a God who meets us in the mess.  In Jesus, God entered into the mess of our world and our lives with the promise and call to something better.

Offering

Stewardship Series

When it comes to stewardship, many people think of offering financial gifts and tithes, but Biblical stewardship is much more than that.  Biblical stewardship is about realizing that everything we have and are is a gift from God to be used according to His will and for His glory.  Romans 12:1-2 calls us to offer ourselves, our whole lives, to God, living according to His will, not the patterns of this world.  In his way, we can see that stewardship really begins with offering our lives.
