CURRENT SERMON SERIES

Hebrews takes the truth of the Old Testament and New Testament and unifies then under the powerful message of Jesus. We are challenged to commit, persevere, and run the race.

Jesus doesn’t mix words when it comes to love.  In fact, He commands it.  We can put His love commands into three groups; INWARD (John 13:34), OUTWARD (Matthew 22:39, and UPWARD (Matthew 22:37-38).

A parable; a teaching aid cast alongside the truth being taught. The Greek word literally means a throwing or placing things along side of each other, for the purpose of comparison.

Jesus used many Parables to teach. This was not an attempt to entertain, but to introduce the people to truth. Let’s look at His stories and find the truth He desires for us.

As each of us travels through life we all gather baggage. We pick up bags filled with unresolved expectations, unfulfilled dreams, unhealed wounds, and unrepented sin. We think we can handle it, but it just keeps getting heavier. Wouldn’t it be great to be free from all of it?
Nehemiah is all about building.  Building a wall, building endurance, building unity.  After receiving reports of the terrible condition of the walls and the state of the people, Nehemiah was moved to action.  However, he didn’t travel to Jerusalem just to visit.  He arrived with a plan to build something that would stand the test of time, something that would change the lives of the people.  As we spend the coming weeks working through Nehemiah, the question is simply this, what are we building?.  What are we building as individuals and as a church?  Are we building something that will last?

Each new year so many of us make commitments to change.  We are determined to lose weight, read more, eat healthy, and quit something. We can look to self help books, advice blogs, and even read up on how to be successful.  Truth is, none of these changes usually last and our commitment and determination tend to fade away.

What if this year were to be different?  What if this year, all the changes and improvements didn’t come from self help books and the internet, but rather from Jesus himself?  What if there were changes available to be made that you didn’t even know about?  Over the next 5 weeks we will take a deeper look at the Beatitudes and discover how this year can be different.

The Nativity scene is one of the most familiar stories told in the Bible.  The picture of Mary and Joseph kneeling beside the baby Jesus as he lay in a manger.  The shepherds soon arrive, followed by the Magi.  We know each of the characters of the story, but how well?  As each of them began their relationship with the new Messiah, they offer each of us lessons to learn about our relationship with Jesus.  Through this series, we will look at each of the unique people that played an important part in this incredible event and hopefully learn a little something from them.
Boots On The Ground is a series in the book of James.  We can listen to, read about, and learn all we can about Scripture and our Faith, but if it never affects the way we live our lives it’s just knowledge.  James challenges us in how our relationship with Jesus Christ should have a profound impact on how our lives are lived.  We are either stuck in training, or we are Boots On The Ground.
