reDiscover Christmas

Almost everyone is familiar with the story of the nativity. Christmas hymns play in the mall, manger scenes decorate lawns, and we hear the same Bible stories. Often our familiarity causes us to miss the history-altering message of Christmas. Join Pastor Tim as we look at the characters of Christmas, their actions, and the message they still speak to us today.

Sermons in this series include:

Acts 2: The Formation of the Church

Join Pastor Tim as he looks at Acts 2. If you’ve been a Christian for a long time, you’ve gone to church forever, we can sometimes get sidetracked with evaluating our church. I’ve been a part of many conversations before, during, and after church about how good church is. And what mean by that is often, how good the sermon, the music, the decorations, the program was. And we can often miss out on the very central point of Church, Jesus. Join me as we look at Acts 2 and the very formation of the church and the three things that the early believers devoted themselves to.

Margin: Making Room for God to Move

So many of us live lives that are overstretched, extra busy, and overwhelming. In the midst of this chaos, God and church can seem like one more thing on top of a huge pile that is already crushing us. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at how to carve out some margin in our lives so that God can move in our lives.
