What It Takes To Follow Jesus

I want to start with a couple of questions today. Let’s start here: Are you good at following instructions? If your boss comes up to you at the beginning of the day and gives you some things to do, will you hear it and then follow through?  How do you handle someone telling you what to do?  Maybe you can do it, but you need to know why you have to do it.  Maybe you will do it, . . .

Buying a Valentine’s Day Card For Your Spouse While Having an Affair

I want to give you a great quote. “Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary, use words.” Saint Francis Sam gave us that quote.  If you were here last week, you heard Sam share that quote.  Sam was talking about how you share Jesus with those you love.  It was so helpful because Sam made clear who does what.  It’s our job to plant the seed and build relationships. The Holy Spirit’s job is to move . . . Read More »

Why Is It So Rare To See Someone Experiencing Their Best Life?

Today we continue the second part of our Proverbs Study that we call A Deeper Dive to Finding Wisdom.  We spent the first half of this series reading the entire book of Proverbs as a Spiritual Family and which was so fun, but also can feel a bit overwhelming as Solomon gives us so much to think through and process, and often jumps back and forth through different important subjects for our daily lives.  In the second half . . .

The Way To Unleash God In Our Lives Is As Clear and Simple As We Want It To Be.

Here in 2023, we have been in a conversation that is centering around one very specific question, it’s a question many people have been asking themselves over the last couple of years.  What’s the point of church?  It’s a good question, and one that many people are wrestling with these days and I believe at this point of the series we are starting to understand just how essential the church really is to us, and to those around . . .

The Tensions Between The Church and The World Has Reached The Tipping Point

Here in 2023, we have started an important conversation, all centering around a very popular question in today’s world.  What is the point of church?  This is an important question, and we have been learning just how essential the church is, how we should view it, how God views it, and just how critical the church is to our Spiritual development, and to the community around us who don’t have the same eternal destiny of those inside the . . .

A Discussion the World Never Wants You To Be Part Of

You know there are things about ministry that are so fun to be part of.  There is just nothing like someone finding and wrapping their hearts and minds around God’s love for them.  It is so inspiring to help point people to true life change and the redemption they can find in Jesus.  There is nothing more powerful than listening to someone tell their story of finding God after being so far from Him and it’s humbling to . . .

The Cost to Complacency

Today we close out our Old School series for the summer.  Let’s quickly walk through the story and the time line of what we experienced this summer. The Children of Israel were in slavery for around 400 years.  God, through Moses, freed them from Egypt and they ended up wandering in the desert and entered the promised land.  After Joshua died, they entered the days of Judges.  That lasted around 300 years.  They then entered the days of . . .
