EMPTY ___________

“Empty” brings feelings of hopelessness, disappointment, and pain. The holidays can often amplify these feelings. But we are not alone. The disciples were filled with all the disappointment of their expectations, the grief of losing a friend, the worry about what was next, and the hopelessness of the situation. But this emptiness can actually be an invitation to experience the Good News of the Gospel. The tomb is empty because we serve a resurrecting king!

We are Sorry

As we enter into the season of Lent, a time of confession and repentance in preparation for Easter, we are confronted by the uncomfortable truth: nobody likes to apologize! Apologizing is hard, even when we know we have done something wrong. Join Pastor Tim as we look at what it means to apologize and three areas that the church needs to apologize for.

Breakthrough Sundays

Join us throughout 2019 as we press in for God’s breakthrough in our lives. While most of our sermon series happen on sequential Sundays, this sermon series is spread out through 2019 as a time set aside for communion, prayer, and seeking God for what he wants to do in our lives.

Sermons in this series:

CONFESSION ≠ REPENTANCE

This past Sunday was the first Sunday of the Lent season, which is a time of confession and preparation for Easter. But because of our familiarity with our own legal system, I think many of us misunderstand to point and power of confession. So join me as we look at Psalm 51 and unpack what it means to truly confess and repent.

Family Service Reflection

In John 6, Jesus feeds the crowd of 5000 with a little boys lunch of five loaves of bread and two fish. Though it seemed so insignificant and insufficient, God used it in a miraculous way to feed the people. God wants to use you too. Even if you don’t think you have anything to offer, God wants to work through you to accomplish miraculous things. Join Pastor Tim for this short reflection from our special family service this past weekend.

Taste and See

In Psalm 34, David writes, “Taste and see that the Lord is good!” Maybe you’ve seen the phrase written on some art at your local Christian book store, but is it really the nice flowery statement that we have turned it into. Actually, David wrote this Psalm in a time of incredible disappointment and struggle. So join Pastor Tim as he helps us read Psalm 34 in the context it was written and allow it to speak hope into your soul.

 

The Lord Who Breaks Through

2 Samuel 5:17-25 tells about two of David’s conflicts with the Philistines. Through prayer and obedience, David saw two victories over the Philistines that secured his kingship. In this passage, David displays a pattern for overcoming the enemy that each and every one of us can put into practice in our own lives.
