August Message Series - Part 3 - Wait, What? Couldn't We At Least...?

Part 3 - Couldn't We At Least...? - When you feel stuck – this can help you get unstuck. Couldn’t we at least – is a way to begin. Most things never happen because we fail to begin. If you are stuck in your life, faith, or relationships – or you’ve had good intentions but have failed to act – this question can help you begin. Couldn’t I at least…start. Couldn’t I at least give it a try and see where it leads? 

Scripture: Acts 8:26-38 – Philip and the early church are scattered but keep proclaiming the good news. Couldn’t we at least preach where we are? He sees the Ethiopian, couldn’t we at least read the Scripture together. Couldn’t I at least tell the story of Jesus? Couldn’t I at least be baptized? It started with a conversation and then turned into a baptism! Couldn’t I at least invite my neighbors over for dinner? Couldn’t we at least give it a try? Couldn’t we at least…begin and see what happens? Gradually, then suddenly. One step at a time – couldn’t we at least – one idea, one discipline, one relational investment at a time – and then suddenly – something amazing might happen!

August Message Series - Part 4 - How Can I Help?

Part 4 - How Can I Help? - How you help matters as much as that you do help. When you follow Christ’s command to serve others, to put the interest of others before your own – you are acting selflessly, but it can be easy for self to sneak back in and make serving more about you, a savior complex or a need to be recognized for that help. How you help matters greatly – serving others with good boundaries, good motivations, and a loving heart is what is needed. Better not to serve at all if you can’t do it without making it all about you. 

Scripture: Acts 10 – Peter and Cornelius. Cornelius is not the usual audience for Paul, in fact, they aren’t supposed to interact. But Peter listens to God and then asks how he can help. Not according to his desires or religious expectations –but in a way that will honor God’s plans and purposes and truly be helpful to those being helped. Begins the mission to the Gentiles. Who are you called to help and how?

August Message Series - Part 5 - What Truly Matters?

Part 5 - What Truly Matters? - This can guide you through an everyday decision or through the biggest decisions of your life. This can bring focus in a meeting and can change the course of a relationship. In your faith, this can matter immensely – it is so easy to get distracted by things that just don’t matter in an ultimate sense – to make your faith about something other than following Jesus and living out his mission. Don’t let the small stuff get in the way of the important stuff. Don’t give into the tyranny of the urgent. Don’t let the urgent derail the important in your life, faith, and relationships. 

 

Scripture: Acts 15:22-35 – The early church was seeing an incredible movement of the gospel into the Gentile population. Some were distracted by legal requirements of Judaism, but were missing what was of first importance – the gospel of Jesus Christ – a gospel that is about freedom and relationship – not rules. Wisely, the early church was able to listen to God and stay focused on what truly matters – the good news of Jesus was proclaimed to Jews and Gentiles. Where in your life, faith and relationships do you need to refocus on what truly matters?

August Message Series - Part 2 - Wait, What? I Wonder...?

Part 2 - I Wonder...? - You’ve probably asked this question in some way, shape or form in your life. I wonder why? I wonder if..? Both bring us to a better understanding of a story or situation – and open us up to God’s possibilities and plans. This question gives life to our curiosity, our desire to learn and know and to grow. It’s a part of who God made us to be. When was the last time you stopped to wonder about something – to learn and grow because of it? Never lose a holy curiosity. Curiosity helps us discover what’s possible, to discover what we don’t know. 

Scripture: Acts 6:1-7 – I wonder why there are problems with the distribution of food – turned into a question – I wonder if…I wonder if we selected some people to oversee that, we would all benefit and the gospel proclamation could go forward. I wonder…if we offered three varieties of music…I wonder if we had a rolling schedule…I wonder why my relationships aren’t healthy – I wonder if I reached out to that person what would happen.

August Message Series begins - Wait, What? Life's Essential Questions

Part 1: Wait, What? - Introduction to message series – the questions we ask matter a great deal. How are you doing at asking what James Ryan calls: Life’s Essential Questions? When it come to our life, faith, and relationships – these questions can help us grow, gain clarity, keeping moving forward, name and face reality, and more. Our first question: “wait, what?” helps us stop and gain clarity and understanding. Where are you making assumptions in your life, faith and relationships instead of stopping to investigate further or seek deeper understanding before responding.

Scripture: Acts 3 – the beggar is healed. Wait, what? The beggar must have thought when offered healing instead of money. Wait, what? The people must have thought when they saw the beggar dancing and praising God. Wait, what? When Peter told them the story of a Messiah who came to give his life instead of conquer an empire. By faith in Jesus – life, true life is found.

Easter Sunday - The Event That Changes Everything

It's easy to appreciate Jesus' teachings. But then the Bible writers tell us that he rose from the dead. And a man rising from the dead is harder to believe; for some, it's so hard to believe that they cherry-pick the teachings and refute the resurrection. In this message, we will explore the truth about Jesus' life and death that Paul says is "of first importance."

Good Friday - We Were There

As Easter approaches and we prepare the incredible news of Jesus’ resurrection and victory over death, we pause on Good Friday to remember Jesus’ passion and crucifixion. We remember that because of the cross and the forgiveness of sin that is accomplished through Jesus’ death – we are given access to relationship with God. We remember that Jesus suffered and died for our sin and selfishness. Though Jesus was crucified nearly 2000 years ago, we confess – We Were There. Gather with us this Good Friday for a time of reflection and worship.

Who Needs God Part 5: I Do

We all want to be masters of our own destinies. We all want to feel in control of our lives. The idea of autonomy is attractive. It makes life feel ordered and predictable. But our desire for autonomy can stand in the way of faith. One of the biggest barriers to belief in God is that we don’t want to believe because we don’t want to need anyone. But what if autonomy is an illusion?

Who Needs God Part 4: In-Justice for All

We all want to rid the world of injustice. But we can only recognize injustice if we know what justice is to begin with. But maybe the best way to rid the world of injustice is to rid the world of God. We don’t always agree about what is just. So, who gets to define justice if not God? When God is gone, injustice leaves with him because justice leaves with him.

Are you caught between doubt and despair because you’ve been trying to worship the bodyguard god, on-demand god, boyfriend god, guilt god, anti-science god, gap god, or angry-Old-Testament god? If big-G God has lost his appeal because you’ve mixed him up with a gaggle of little “g” gods that don’t exist, then how can you know what God is really like?
