    Set Free to Not Take the Name of the Lord in Vain
    What’s in a name? Our names come from our parents. Either they chose it because they liked the name or it had special meaning, perhaps in the family. In the Bible, names describe the person, and using a name shows familiarity and connection. This Sunday we look at the 3rd of the 10 Commandments, where God forbids us to use His name without meaning. Why? Because His name shows familiarity and connection. We’ll discover how using God’s name with meaning brings meaning to our lives!

    Set Free to Have No Idols
     At first glance, the second of the Ten Commandments seems easy for us: Don’t make any idols. But when we’re honest, we soon realize that we make all kinds of idols. The antidote is authentic worship. So, come this Sunday expecting to turn your face to God in true worship!
    Scripture: Exodus 20:1-6

    Set Free to Love God First
    The first of the 10 Commandments is the key: Make God first in your life. We may have God
    in our lives, but we struggle keeping Him first. Yet when we don’t, we suffer. God’s plan for
    our best life is only possible when we put Him above everything else. This Sunday, come
    ready to do just that!
    “Jesus replied, ‘‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with
    all your being, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.’” -
    Matthew 22:37-38.

    Set Free Love God

    As we begin a new year, we commit again to the plan God has given us for living well. So, we go back to the 10 Commandments as God’s intended path for how we should live in order to live best. They are not antiquated or “downer” rules. They unlock abundant life. Our message series looks as the first four of these commandments, rules that focus our love singularly on God. From this foundation our future is built!

    Songs of Joy – Songs of Christmas
    So many classic Christmas songs highlight the joy of spending time with loved ones. Being together is a key part of Christmas. Actually, according to the Bible, this is true! This Sunday we’ll learn how Jesus came to reconcile people back to God and restore people to one another. Jesus came at Christmas so we could have those precious relationships!

    nations.” -Luke 2:30-31

    Songs of Salvation – Songs of Christmas
    We’re coming up to Christmas now, merely days away. And from this close, we begin to see that the joy of Christmas comes with a dark side. The baby born on Christmas came to bring salvation, but that means He had to die on a cross. This Sunday we’ll learn to sing the songs of Christmas not with shallow merryment, but with a thread of lament.

    Songs of Peace – Songs of Christmas

    Luke 2:8-20

    Peace is an elusive thing.  Even though we live in a safe and wealthy country, studies show that more and more people are anxious and worried.  How can this be?  Again, we find ourselves in need of good news.  This week we hear the angels sing their song and learn again where we can find true peace.

    Songs of Faith – Songs of Christmas

    Scripture: Luke 1:67-79

    The songs of Christmas fill the air. Perhaps you find yourself humming them! But are you listening to the message? Some songs talk about cheer, snow, and Santa. Others speak of a Savior born in Bethlehem. This Sunday we’ll sing songs of Christmas, but we’ll also experience how the original songs of Christmas bring us hope, peace, and abundant life. Come and sing–with your whole being–the Christmas songs of faith!

    Songs of Hope- Songs of Christmas
    Isaiah 9:2-7
    Holy Communion

    Isaiah sings a song of hope into the darkness of our world. His words come to us as a poem that is meant to be experienced, not merely heard.  This week, come and be moved as we take a look at this original Christmas carol and discover how we ought to respond.

    Responseability
    Joel 2:18-28
    Thanksgiving is the holiday when we stop to give thanks for the harvest and all that we have. But the Bible teaches us that thanksgiving really isn’t a response to what we have. It’s about God in our lives, who made us with the need to give thanks. This Sunday, we’ll go beneath the cultural calling of thanksgiving and discover the biblical push to connect it to God’s character. Don’t miss this Sunday, it’ll change your Thanksgiving!
  • Nov 17, 2019What Are You Looking For?

    What Are You Looking For?

    John 6:1-71

    We come to Jesus hoping He will help us in our messes. We want Him to repair a relationship, heal an illness, fix a problem, give us strength to face whatever we are going through. And He does. But Jesus offers us more than help. He offers us Himself. It is when we take Him fully that we receive the deepest healing and wholeness. Come this Sunday seeking more than help from Jesus!

    When Not to Give
     Matthew 5:21-26
    Let’s talk about money! Money is the stuff of life. It is a blessing but it is also a bucking bronco. If we don’t keep tight control on it, it will throw us around! This Sunday we’ll engage the life-changing biblical view of money and learn how it can be a blessing from God that brings abundant life.

    Why Do We Buy That? My Ancestry
    Romans 6:3-8, Colossians 2:9-15, and 1 John 3:1-2
    “You are the sum of what you have done!” This proverb seems to seal our fate that our past now determines our lives. But this Sunday we hear about a different heritage that can become ours when we choose Jesus. Our lives are determined by our past, yes, but it is the new past Jesus gives us! We celebrate All Saints Sunday and remember that those who have died are alive, living out a new future given to them by their Jesus-given ancestry!

    Why Do We Buy That? – Acting Out

    James 2:14-19, 24 

    Jesus-followers don’t just sit around all day enjoying their personal relationship with Jesus. They do that while “on the road.” We live out our faith as we go and do. This Sunday we’ll learn how the Methodist Method includes growing by doing, or, put with a cliche, practice makes perfect! Teaser: There will also be treats!
  • Oct 20, 2019Why Do We Buy That? – Wanting It All
    Oct 20, 2019
    Why Do We Buy That? – Wanting It All
    Romans 12:1-2
    Have you noticed how you’ve subtly become addicted to wanting more...better...that next thing? It’s surprising just how sneakily that seeps into our lives! The way to counter the consumption of consumptionism is to live out your salvation every day. That means applying how you make Jesus your Lord not just when you become a Christian, but continually. This Sunday we’re learning to kneel before our Lord each and every day.

    Why Do We Buy That? – End with Forgiveness
    Ephesians 4:17-32 Being in relationships means dealing with the mess that other people dish out on us. It’s hard, even when it’s people we love. But our response is determined not by what they do, but by who rules inside of us. This Sunday we’ll re-frame retaliation and hear Jesus’ calling to forgive. Trust me, if you live in today’s culture, you need to hear this message!
  • Oct 6, 2019Why Do We Buy That? – Power in Numbers
    Oct 6, 2019
    Why Do We Buy That? – Power in Numbers
    Ephesians 4:1-16 World Communion Day  
    It’s easy to break a single stick. Yet when you hold a bunch of sticks, it is very hard to break them all together. Do you feel like you are cracking and splintering? Then you need to join the rest of the “sticks” this Sunday at worship. It’s World Communion Sunday and we’re celebrating how we have the Body of Christ as Jesus’ gift of support for us!
