Man, He’s Annoying!

It’s time to change your view!

    Fighting Blind
    We live in the physical world, but our hope comes from outside of this world. When we choose to follow Jesus, we have a power from the spiritual world that breaks into our daily lives. We fight using what we cannot see. Although we can’t see it, it is just as real, and it changes our reality. This Sunday we’ll learn about the gift and power of the Holy Spirit God has given us. It is a force that is with us!

    You Can Make a Difference
    There is a galactic struggle going on, and you can make a difference! God has a plan and a role for you, important work to do. Come this Sunday to hear how you have a specific role in “the resistance.” It gives your life meaning and purpose. “It is your destiny!” God is counting on you!

    The Bigger Story
    In the cosmic struggle between good and evil, you have a role. God has a purpose for you, to make a difference in the bigger plan. We cannot stand on the side and watch the world go by. When we follow Jesus, we join in His work in this world. This Sunday, we who join the “resistance” are commissioned to live into our life’s purpose!

    The Duality of Reality
    This Sunday’s message is “The Duality of Reality.” The Star Wars “universe” the strong battle between good and evil is represented in The Force and The Dark Side. The reality for us in real life is that we, too, live in a strong reality. This Sunday we’ll see how two key stars of the Bible (the “star” of Satan and the star of Bethlehem announcing Jesus’ birth) show us the REAL “star wars.” Jesus calls His followers to join the real-life “rebellion” and fight for good against evil!

    Love is Hard Work
    Every saint in heaven has gotten there (and will get there) with some wrong beliefs and errant  thinking. Luckily, it’s not about getting it all perfectly correct! Instead, it’s about genuinely loving Jesus and seeking to make Him first in your life. And, as Jesus-followers, the same is true with the other people around us. Our relationship with them is not based on the uniformity of our thinking, or them getting certain understandings right. Instead, it is based on love, the love that we choose to have for them. This changes everything! Come this Sunday to hear an alternative to the pervasive culture of hate-speech and animosity. Love looks different!

    Amen

    Have you noticed that we often end prayers with two important phrases? One is, “In Jesus’ name I pray,” and the other is “Amen.” This Sunday, we’ll discover how these two phrases are key to praying in a way that transforms you! Prayer unleashes the saving power of Jesus, and our prayers put us in alignment with that. Come and take on this life-changing “labor” of prayer!

  • Aug 26, 2018Thank You!

    Thank You!
    Tell God “Thank you!” We must do this in all situations: when things are going well and we have what we want, and when things are going badly, and we find little to be thankful about. This Sunday we’ll engage giving God thanks in a creative, participatory way. So, no matter what your personal situation, come ready to say “thank you” to God in many ways!

    They Need You
     “Brighten the corner, where you are!” God has placed you in this world in a certain place, at an intentional time, and with specific people: all on purpose. Part of the work that God has for you to do is to touch the lives of the people that God places within your sphere of influence. God is orchestrating connections to people in your life, because they need your prayers! This Sunday we’ll work on our prayer lives to deepen our prayers for others. It is important, daily, God-given work for you!

    I Need You
    One of the main reasons we talk to God is to ask for help. This may seem selfish to some degree, but we do it anyway because of a bedrock truth: God wants to help us! Actually, we need to ask for it more, because one of our crippling problems is that we have a tendency to insulate our lives too much from God! This Sunday we will learn to be more bold in asking for God’s help, but asking in a way that keeps God in charge. Come ready to pray!

    You are Good
    Do you slip into appreciating God only because of what He can do for you? Do you sometimes take God for granted, and seek Him out only when you want something? Our God is so amazing, and because He showers amazing blessings on us, we can begin to focus only on what He does (or doesn’t do) for us. This Sunday we’ll continue our prayer series by learning to focus not on the benefits we get from God, but on God’s amazing character. And when we do, we will find our prayer life, and all of our lives, transformed! God is good...all the time!

    Prayer is Disappointing
    If we are honest, we would have to admit that often we are disappointed with prayer. It can feel like we are just talking to the air.  What gives?  If God is real and he loves us, why would praying to him be such a chore?  Come this Sunday as we explore these honest questions and try to understand prayer in the light of God's word.

    O Foolish Christians
    What voice do you listen to? There are lots of loud voices clamoring for your attention and allegiance. As Jesus-followers we choose to listen to the voice of Jesus. Yet that is not always easy to do! The Galatians in the Bible had trouble focusing on Jesus' voice as they lived their daily struggles. Pauls' word to them helps us to stay focused!

    Steve Ruter is the next of our Five Preachers. We all struggle with prayer and desire a stronger prayer life. Steve tackles common misconceptions and barriers to prayer, and gives biblical and practical tips to help us grow more mature in our prayer lives. We even had a chance to try out some ideas during the worship service!

    Dreaming of Lunch
    This Sunday we begin our new series, The Five Preachers, with the Rev. Peter Milloy. Pastor Peter will look at a dream that Peter experienced in the Bible, that led to a very different, and exciting future for the church! Perhaps we'll begin to see a new dream for ourselves, and for our church, too!

    Mature Life
    Series: Turning 21
    This Sunday is Fathers’ Day. We are to honor and give God thanks for your human fathers and for how they have shaped and influenced us in good and healthy ways. In worship, we will also turn to our Heavenly Father and learn how He wants to shape and mold us into what He intends for us to be. This is holiness. This week we will see this means inner maturity of our hearts affecting our outward maturity in how we relate to others. It’s a holistic deal!

    Turning 21 with Wesley – Mature Heart
    Series: Turning 21
    Growing up into a mature Jesus follower is hard work. And it takes time! We have to work at it. We have particular problems with what we say, or as the Bible say, “what comes out of our mouths.” This Sunday we’re targeting the maturing of our hearts, for out of our mouths, the heart speaks! Oh yeah, and our money, too!
