The Greatest Form of Discipleship

So this summer we have been having a lot of fun here at MRC.  We have been working through a series on the church.  If you think about what we have been doing with this teaching, we have been asking some pretty specific questions about the church and how you answer these questions is very, very important.  The way I see it if we take a step back and look at this series the big questions look something . . .

The Chicken and The Egg

So this summer we have been having a lot of fun here at MRC.  We have been working through a series on the church.  If you think about what we have been doing with this teaching, we have been asking some pretty specific questions, and these questions are a really big deal.  Actually, these questions aren’t really that big of a deal at all but how you answer these questions is very, very important.  The way I see . . .

Being a Disciple Maker and Some Fishing Tips

So this summer we have been in a series about the church and I think it’s been a ton of fun so far and I think it’s been a really powerful time for us to dive into some penetrating truths about us as a church…about who we are, what we do, and why we do it.  We have really been pushing in one very specific set of questions.  How do you view the church?  How do you do . . .

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?

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 . . .
