Acts 28: The Heart Of It All - November 22, 2020

Image
We made it. We're wrapping up our series in Acts with a message from Acts 28 this week. The focal point of this message is going to center around Paul appealing to people to turn towards God to be healed. The central warning in the message is to not grow complacent, or calloused, just hearing the message of grace without receiving and living the message of grace. May we all turn towards Jesus and truly hear him today.  COVID Update: We're most likely to be going online for the rest of this year for our Sunday services. We'll be posting the weekly messages here, but we're also going to try to do a Zoom service on Sunday mornings at 10:30AM. If you want to be a part of those, click here and email us, and we'll add you to the list . To follow along with this week's text, click here , otherwise, it's in the video below. Next week, we'll start our Advent series. We'll be posting an update on our COVID tab of this website about if we're officially movi

Acts 27: Desperate - November 15, 2020

Image
Desperate times call for... Jesus.  Most of you reading this probably haven't been tossed around at sea for two weeks and then shipwrecked. If you have, then you can probably identify easier with Acts 27 instead of just picturing it like the rest of us.  We can often spot other people when they're in distress and desperate, but sometimes the church struggles to share when we need the very help and hope we profess to need. Take some time this week to explore areas where you may need to be more desperate for Jesus to be Lord of your life.  We all need saving.  To follow along with this week's text, click here .  To email us, click here.

Acts 26: Connecting and Completing - November 8, 2020

Image
 This week we're in Acts 26, seeing Paul give his testimony (again) while on trial (again). Watch how he ties the history of his people and their belief in a Messiah to the arrival of a Messiah and the impact and change on his life.  Paul uses this reality to extend an invitation to the king and anyone listening. The reality is the good news of the gospel is the offer on the table for anyone. Jesus came so that everyone could know God as father and receive eternal life.  To follow along, click here .

Acts 25: Piling On - November 1, 2020

Image
 Have you ever felt like the world is broken, your life is a mess, and that things aren't going to get better? Where do you turn and what do you do when you feel such despair? In today's message, we look at Acts 25, and Paul's life seems to be on repeat: Angry mob wants him dead, they drag him in front of a different judge or ruler with bogus charges, imprison him without being able to find any guilt in him, repeat as necessary.  One could imagine that this would get real old, real quick. How does Paul keep going? Because his hope isn't in this world. His hope is in a resurrected Jesus Christ. What can we learn from that, and how can we apply that in our lives today? Does it still hold up? What's in your pile? It may not be angry mobs or illegitimate trials on the way to Rome, but maybe it's shame, or hurt, or doubt, or debt...what if Jesus was big enough, and more importantly real enough to take your pile and make you clean again?

Acts 24: Discouragement and Trust - October 25, 2020

Image
This week's message is from Acts 24. Have you ever wrestled with trusting through a frustrating season? Have you ever expressed those feelings towards God? We have a loving God who is big enough and real enough to handle our seasons of doubt, struggle, discontentment and hurt. The cross of Jesus shows us that.  Three things to consider this week: 1) We need the reality and the truth of God to be our foundation 2) Being faithful doesn't always yield immediate earthly results 3) It's okay to express hurt while we trust To follow along with the scripture, click here .

Acts 23: Being Courageous - October 18, 2020

Image
 This week, we take a look at Acts 23 ( click here to follow along ). We see Paul continue to be a problematic hot potato for the religious and political leadership in the region by preaching a hope in a resurrection through Jesus Christ.  Here's a few things to remember: 1) God is always with us. 2) Courage is actually found in surrender to Jesus. 3) The church is to mirror the qualities found in Jesus. If you want prayer or to connect with us, send us an email here . We have Sunday services each week at 10:30am. Here's where to find us:
