What’s in a Name? Part 1: The Word

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: beginning, eternal, logos

John’s Gospel begins with a beautiful poetic declaration of Christ, ascribing Him the name “Word.” This is much more than flowery poetry to grace our Christmas cards. Consider the weight ascribed to the “Word” becoming flesh and making His dwelling among us.  Text: John 1: 1-18

The Reset

How easy it is to get caught up in ourselves and totally miss the mark. As this text reveals, sometimes the Lord gently presses our reset button to reveal how far we are off.  Text: Luke 19:37-41

God is for you!

“God is for you” easily becomes a nice-sounding cliche. Is it true? Consider this Old Testament story which provides applications for today at how far God will go to prove this truth.  Text: Number 22:22-35

Keeping Perspective…in the Battle

Life is VERY hard. When in the thick of spiritual battle and everyday life, keeping perspective can be difficult. Consider God’s heart and perspective for the church in such times.  Text: Revelation 21:1-8

When You Feel Like Shouting at God

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Hope, hopelessness

It is natural to romanticize the stories of the Scriptures. However, the raw reality of human experience reveals even the disciples shouting at God. Consider similar applications within our own story.  Text: Mark 4:33-41

Gotta Have Faith

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: Faith, move mountains, prayer, Trust

The account of the fig tree withering is a teachable moment for the disciples on the power of faith. What is faith? How is it pleasing to God? Fight the good fight of the faith.  Text: Mat. 21:18-22, Heb. 11:1-6, I Tim. 6:12-16
