My Value is Determined by my stuff (Lie #4)

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Identity, labor, money, Worship

The stuff we have can redefine who we are and compromise our worship. As we uncover Lie #4 of this series, consider the strong words of James to guard the labors of our heart against the god of stuff.  Text: James 5:1-6

Stones & a Donkey…If stones yearn to worship, what might a donkey teach us?

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Faith, wonder, Worship

On Palm Sunday 2020, much uncertainty grips our world. The world was quite uncertain as Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. Jesus said, if worshipers fail to worship, the stones would cry out. What might stones and a donkey teach us about worship and Lordship in times of uncertainty? Text: Luke 19: 29-44

Of Saints & Sinners…Worship the King who Transforms

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: expectation, the cross, Worship

The events that occur after the birth of Jesus offer a graphic picture into the mission of Jesus. Magi from the east come bearing gifts. They seek the child-king. They also stir up the ire of king Herod. What follows is a horrible scene that presses us deep into the evil mess which Jesus has come to redeem. Text: Matthew 2:1-23

Celebrating Radical Generosity

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: authenticity, Generosity, mission, money, Tithe, Worship

The solution to a life that is leaning away from God is to return to God, and one of the ways we return is through our giving. Giving is an expression of worship which reflects trust in God’s steadfast love and gracious provision in Jesus. Where the Old Testament speaks of a tithe, the New Testament looks to the self-giving, sacrificial love of Jesus inviting us into a life of generous giving.Text: 2 Corinthians 8:1-15; 9:6-15; Psalm 24:1

If cash is king, is Jesus Lord? Our stuff and our heart

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Lordship, money, stewardship, Worship

Scripture has a lot to say about money and things. Consider two contrast models in Scripture which suggest the true issue is the Lordship of our money and things.Text: Exodus 36:1-7; Matthew 21:12-16

A Song of Community Gladness

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: belonging, Christian home, community, joy, Worship

We all have within us a need to worship and a need to belong. These essential human needs find their truest expression in the structure and secure relationships of a Christ-centered home and in the community of a God-honoring, Christ-following, worshiping, and praising people. When worship shapes family life, and family life shapes worship we extend our reach for Christ.  Text: Psalm 122

The Reset

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: authenticity, Worship, worshipper

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

REAL Resistance

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Humility, pride, resistance, Worship

King Herod exerted REAL resistance to the unfolding story of God. Consider human nature of resisting what God desires to do versus seeking what God is doing.  Text: Matthew 2:1-11, 16-18
