Series: Foundations for the New Year

Message: Commitment or Surrender?

 

As we head out of 2017 and into 2018, it is a good time to be reminded of the basic truths of our faith. God has a plan for us and it is a good plan. How can I make the most of this year? How can I walk the way God wants me to? What should I focus on?

December 31st News: Foundations for the New Year

December 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Foundations for the New Year

Message: Commitment or Surrender

As we enter a New Year, we often think back on the previous year and then ahead to the coming year. It is a time for reflection, as well as a time for futre dreams.

How can we experience the “life to the full” that Jesus tells us is available to us?

Over the next 3 weeks we are going to lay some Biblical foundations that can propel us into 2018 with faith, hope and love!

To prepare, read Jeremiah 29:11-13, Zechariah 4:6, and Matthew 16:24-26.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 24th News: Christmas Eve 2017

December 22, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Message: The Truth of Christmas

This Sunday evening we will gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

We all have our Christmas memories, traditions, and desires… But we also know that much of what we experience has overshadowed to reason that we are celebrating. It is easy to get caught up in what the world wants to say about this night and miss what God says.

Come to hear from Jesus, himself, why he came and why it is such good news!

To prepare, read Luke 2:1-20.

Our Christmas Eve service will start at 4:30 at the School of Rock. Since Christmas Eve is Sunday, we will not have a service this Sunday morning.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Follow Me: Build on the Rock

Message: Build on the Rock

 

At the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus sums up his teachings with some warnings and then a parable. Although his words may seem intolerant or narrow-minded or exclusive to many, they are, rather, the most important words we could ever hear.

Why?

Because they are true and lead to life.

Message: Build on the Rock

As we conclude our series Follow Me we will look at the last part of the Sermon on the Mount. In his conclusion, Jesus makes it very clear that there is only one way to build a meaningful life.

In a timeless message, he tells us we all build our lives on something.

To prepare, read Matthew 7:13-29.

I also want to remind you that we will have our Christmas Eve service next Sunday at 4:30 at the School of Rock. Since Christmas Eve is a Sunday, we will not have a service next Sunday morning.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: The Golden Rule

 

We’re all probably familiar with the Golden Rule.

Matthew 7:12:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

This is a very interesting statement by Jesus. It is an active way to express love.

Message: On Earth as it is in Heaven

In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray, “Your kingdom come, you will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

That is a very challenging and exciting prayer.

December 3rd News: Follow Me– On Earth as in Heaven

Series: Follow Me

Message: On Earth as in Heaven

As we enter the Christmas season, we are reminded that God invaded the earth when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

It doesn’t get a whole lot more radical than that!

This Sunday we are going to look at an aspect of the Lord’s Prayer where Jesus tells us exactly what we should be doing and thinking about.

To prepare, read Matthew 6:9-15.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
