What are you looking for? 2020, a new decade

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: outcomes, pathways, purpose

Jesus posed over one hundred different questions throughout the Gospels. In this series “Questions Jesus Asked Us,” eight questions will be explored. As this new decade begins, a timely ask is, “What are you looking for?” Consider this timeless question and its application today.  Text:  John 1:19-39

Of Saints & Sinners…Immanuel enters the messiness

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: gift, Immanuel, messiness, Salvation

Consider again, the Word becoming flesh, wrapped in cloth and lying in a manger. For Christ to leave perfection and enter our messiness, indeed, Christmas is Wonderful…a story only God could write.  Text: Matthew 1:16-25; Isaiah 9:6-7

Of Saints & Sinners…The “messiness” of Jesus Genealogy

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: brokeness, family, messiness, redeemed

Part 1 of Advent Series, “Of Saints And Sinners”. How God chose to enter the human story is miraculous. The messy family tree through which God chose to enter is equally miraculous. In #1 of 5 of the Christmas series, consider the wonder of Immanuel entering our story through saints and sinners.  Text: Matthew 1:1-5, 21

The Ask

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: persuaded, Salvation, Witness

One of the greatest responsibilities of the Christian witness is “the ask.” Consider how Paul honored his faith and relationship through “the ask.”  Text: Acts 26:19-32

The Devil’s Favorite Color

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: darkness, deception, light, Truth

Did you ever wonder what the devils favorite color might be? Consider how spiritual attentiveness guards one against the subtle “go to” color most often used by Satan.  Text: 2 Peter 3:1-17

Much more than puppets in the story of God

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: evil, Faith, suffering

#3 of 4 in Series:  When Life is Hard and God Seem Cruel

When life is hard and God seems cruel, our reality may appear like a puppet on a string. In this third of four messages, despite evil and suffering, consider how we are much more than puppets- we are participants in God’s story.  Text: Hebrews 11

Sitting with uncomfortable questions…as did Job

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: evil, mystery, questions, suffering

#2 of 4 in Series:  When Life is Hard and God Seems Cruel

The story of Job is filled with mystery and wonder-especially of evil, suffering, and the sovereignty of God. Consider how this incredible book is not about suffering–it is a story about God.  Text:  Job 1:1-2:13
