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, . . .

Sometimes Pain Comes In Handy

I’m just going to come right out and say this as we get started today, I think today we are going to get into the true reality of life today, and if we are honest, reality isn’t always pretty.  So as we jump into the next story in our “I Am Second” series you need to know, this one is going to be very raw.  I know it might not be the world we show people on social . . .

Where Does It Go From Here?

So today is the big conclusion to our summer series, and I have to tell you…I’m sad to see it go.  I just feel like what we have studied and walked through all summer long is such a big deal.  I have been thinking and dreaming a lot of a day where we literally live out this life that Jesus lays out for us in Matthew 5, 6, and 7.  Behind the scenes Ken and I keep talking . . .

Words to Live By…Or Not.

Well it’s hard to believe but we have made our way to the last few moments of this amazing teaching from Jesus here and today we are going to see how Jesus wraps this whole thing up and in these last few verses we will once again see the big theme unfolding.  The theme has been Jesus laying out the type of life that a disciple should live…which would mean that these words that Jesus is preaching are . . .

The Shift Is The Key – Ask, Seek, Knock, and The Promise.

So we have been rolling along through this big summer series where we have been looking at Jesus’ famous teaching, “The Sermon on the Mount.”  This is such a big deal for us as disciples of Christ, to listen to Jesus teach us how to actually live as His disciples and then actually to go and apply these words to our lives.  I think we would all agree that living out these words of Jesus is challenging, but . . .

What Are You Missing Out On?

So we have been rolling along through our big summer series studying one of the most profound and popular sermons ever preached…Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.  I have to tell you this series has been such a big deal to me in my own personal life.  I have been amazed at how as we study God’s word just how much it applies directly into my everyday life.  Whether it’s how I respond to people, or as I walk . . .

Being You In Every Environment

So we have been working our way through this Emotionally Healthy Relationships series, which has been such an important thing for us discuss as we build into and start our church here in Gettysburg.  There are couple things that I believe all Christians really need to wrap their minds around when it comes to relationships.  The first thing is that you actually were designed to be with people by God.  I know, I know for some of us (and I would . . .

Let’s Get Real

So last week we started our brand new series ‘Sticks and Stones’ where we began a journey into some reading material on Emotionally Healthy Relationships.  I think this series is an extremely big deal because let’s face it…whether you want to or not, we all deal with people.  We all have relationships and we learned some really important things last week about our ability to love others well or not and how that reflects on our relationship with God.  I think . . .

The Key to Bold And Free

So we are rolling right along now in our series Different, which I have really enjoyed it so far!  I feel like things have really heated up in this series as we have really turned from the foundational parts of life change, to making actual commitments to actually being different from our encounter with Jesus…which is real, which makes it fun and if you have been around us any length of time here at MRC you know that we . . .

Spiritual Adulting

So today we continue this series called Different.  The whole idea is that we want to challenge you to be different spiritually in 2018 and beyond.  And if you remember, we are building off of this theme, that we want this idea of life change to be real, and long lasting.  We don’t want the passion or focus for this commitment to being different spiritually to a passing fad…that wouldn’t be a good at all, which is why . . .
