Fruit of the Spirit: Joy

Chris Cleveland continues our study into the Fruit of the Spirit. This week focusing on joy. The true Christian life should be full of joy but is there a difference between joy and happiness. True joy is founded on our relationship with Christ. Looking at John 16 we find out what makes our hearts rejoice.

Fruit of the Spirit: Love

Pastor Chris continues his study in the Fruit of the Spirit. This week we look at 1 Corinthians chapter 13. Christ was a perfect example of love. His perfect love changes and conforms us to live a spirit-filled life.

Fruit of the Spirit

Chris Cleveland looks at Galatians chapter 5. How does one receive and walk in the fruit of the Spirit? How do we walk in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control when our sinful nature tries to pull us in the opposite direction?

Come Let us Adore Him

Amy Kropp shares from Luke chapter 1. Our life can get so frantic and hectic that we forget to spend time in worship, adoring our Savior. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is a wonderful example of how we are called to humbly worship the Lord. 

Elder Testimony

Pastor and Elder George Novellano shares his testimony.

Thankfulness: Remembering

Pastor Dennis shares the importance of remembering what God has done for us and sharing our testimony with each other is crucial to building our faith.

Our Example: Sacrifice

Pastor Chris wraps up our sermon series on Christ our example. Christ called us to take up our cross and follow Him. Humility, forgiveness, and sacrifice are the examples he gave us. He is calling us to be like Him. It won't be an easy task but through His power, we can change the world by following His Example.

Our Example: Forgiveness

Continuing our study Pastor Chris Cleveland looks at Ephesians 4. The world is full of anger and hate so why would the Bible tell us to be angry? Are our emotions bad or have they just gone bad? Can we really forgive? The answer is yes because a forgiven heart is a forgiving heart!

Our Example: Humility

Does it ever seem that the news is filled with stories of people who seemed to be completely self-absorbed? Why is it that we can't seem to get along? Pastor Chris Cleveland shares from Philippians chapter 2 and looks at one remedy for the situation and Jesus our example.

The Word: God's Work

Jacob was a doer...with some hard work and a bit of cheating, lying, wheeling and dealing he managed to become rich and powerful. But taking a closer look, Amy points out that he never had to do anything. The Lord had called and chosen Jacob to walk in the blessings of Abraham. So many of us try to work out our own blessings, and often the Lord has already worked it out for us!

The Word: Laying down our Isaacs

This week Amy Kropp takes a look at genesis 22 and the account of Abraham’s willingness to offer his son, Isaac as a sacrifice of obedience to the Lord. In this account we see a challenge for believers today. Are all of our hopes, dreams, and plans placed on someone or something in our lives? Have we placed these things ahead of the Lord? If so we are challenged to “lay our Isaac down” before Him.

The Word: Extravagant Respect

In Genesis 18 and 19 we learn how Abraham responded to the Word of the Lord with immediate obedience and extravagant respect. Amy Kropp points out that this should be our response to the Lord’s calling. In fact, Jesus said in Matthew 13 that this is the kingdom of heaven.

The Word of the Lord

Amy Kropp begins a new series into the history and background of how we have access to the Word of God and how the Bible as we know it was compiled.

Jonah

Amy Kropp wraps up our sermon series in the book of Jonah.

Jonah

Pastor Ryan continues his sermon series in the book of Jonah.

Prayer & Deliverance

Continuing in the story of Jonah, Pastor Ryan Alsheimer talks about how Jonah was swallowed by the giant fish, went on to pray a remarkable prayer inside the fish's belly, and was spit out onto the shore; and how this is all linked to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Mission & Rebellion

The story of Jonah is about so much more than the popular children’s story. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer kicks off the new series in the book of Jonah with a message about how God is merciful, missional, and sovereign; in spite of Jonah’s defiant rebellion against Him. Because of this, there is hope for us in our rebellion. 

Forgiven Much, Love Much

Jesus teaches in Luke 7 about how those who are forgiven of much in their lives should be quick to love and forgive others. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer shares about how God’s people are forgiven of every sin, and should love and forgive others with the same kind of love that God has for us.

Father’s Day 2018

In a story from John 8:37-47 about a conversation that he has with the Pharisees, Jesus tells the truth about how every person is a product of their father. The problem is that we are born choosing the wrong father to follow. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer talks about how our great Father God rescues us and brings us into his family, despite our opposition.
