The Frustrations of Prayer

Speaker: Leon Hurst

God’s timing can frustrate us, and yet it is an unexpected part of His goodness as we discover from the Israelites, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph and Elijah.  Text: Luke 11:5-13; 1 Kings 18

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
