What Could Be

Over the last few years we have taken the summer and studied a book of the Bible.  Quite frankly it’s something that I look forward to every year.  Over the past few years we have studied some of Paul’s letters, and James…and this year I was really gearing up to study 1st and 2nd Peter with you all.  I enjoy picking the scriptures apart like that…but that isn’t the direction we went this summer…instead we are jumping into . . .

Walking Upstream

Today we are going to talk about what it means to bring integrity into your relationships with others, so we are talking today about bringing God into our relationships or our dealings with people in this world. And I am just going to start by telling you something, that I know is true but wish at times that it wasn’t true and it’s this…the world, and the people of it really don’t like you standing as who you . . .

The Magnitude of the Cross

You know here at MRC we stay focused on keeping things simple and introducing you to the magnitude of The Cross and I will just say it, I think we do a pretty good job of pointing to the Gospel message on a weekly basis.  We want to introduce you to the amazing gift that our Heavenly Father gave us through Jesus.  We want you to know it, and more than know it, we want you to feel . . .

“Where Is Your Faith?”

Ok, so we have been in a big series, that started all the way back in the beginning of the year and is coming to an end right here around Easter, and I think it has been absolutely awesome.  We’ve been looking at the things that really block us from this life and life to the full that Jesus came to provide us…you know the life I’ve been describing as a life with freedom, victory, and power.  It’s . . .

The Dangers of Pride and The Rewards of Humility

Today we continue this series looking at one of the biggest, and sneakiest forms of spiritual kryptonite out there.  I know right? Another big one!  We will also look at the counter to it, which is also pretty interesting because it is often misunderstood.  This is a big one because today we are talking about pride and humility and I want you to know right on the front end.  Pride is difficult to deal with, because…if you deal . . .

Who the Son sets free is free indeed…right?

Well here we are in a brand new year!  2019!  The New Year is always so exciting right?  I mean for so many of us this is a time of hope, and optimism about what could be in the brand new year, which I think is awesome.  This is a time for those New Year’s Resolutions and just a chance to almost hit reset and get a fresh start on so many things for us in so many . . .

Let’s Talk About Life…

I want to start today by telling you that we are in my favorite week or two of the year, I love this time of year.  Maybe that should be more of a warning, because this time of year, hits my heart pretty hard.  I love Thanksgiving.  It’s my favorite holiday.  I grew up always looking forward to this time of year.  It just always hit me as a time of laughter and joy and rest, after what . . .

The Hardest Person To Forgive

You know if you have been anywhere near MRC in anyway, you probably have seen one of our favorite images.  It’s the image of an upside down turtle with this one very specific question on it; “stuck?”  We love that imagery and we use it on everything from our Facebook page, to our billboards, and our invitations to our church because it really says a lot about how a lot of us feel.  We can feel stuck in . . .

The Way Through

So today, we continue this I Am Second series looking at Brian Welch, who was a musician in the band Korn.  I’m excited because as I watched his story I realized even though he is a famous rock star, with fame, and fortune, and all that comes with that rock star life, he also deals with a lot of what you and I deal with.  When I watch his testimony I see that Brian is in the whirlwind of life, . . .

We All Have Something In Common

So last week, Ken opened up our big fall series, called I am Second, and I think just one week in you can probably see why this series has us so excited.  It’s because it is all about life change, which when it comes to this whole “Christian-faith-thing,” this is really what it is all about.  Now as you listen to these people tell their stories of life change you will recognize a lot of them.  They are famous rock stars, . . .
