Summer With Purpose: Blessable?

But are we living lives that God can bless?  Join Pastor Tim as he challenges us to be intentional in the areas of our life that we all know we should be.

Summer With Purpose: Why Community?

Summer is here! But before you know it, summer will be over. Most of us have great intentions about what we want to do and who we want to be.  Join Pastor Tim as he challenges us to be intentional in the areas of our life that we all know we should be. The Early church was facing a spiritual revolution. They no longer had a role for the temple. Jesus was the perfect priest and sacrifice once for all. Today we are also facing a revolution, a technological revolution. In a world where we can attend church online anywhere in the world, we can easily lose track of why we gather together in community.

Summer With Purpose: Everything is Spiritual

Summer is here! But before you know it, summer will be over. Most of us have great intentions about what we want to do and who we want to be.

Summer With Purpose: Powerful Words

Summer is here! But before you know it, summer will be over. Most of us have great intentions about what we want to do and who we want to be. James 3:2 says, “For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.” What a crazy statement. For those of us who are Christians and trying to be intentional about our spiritual walk, this verse has some series implication about the power God has invested in us. Join Pastor Tim as he challenges us to be intentional in the areas of our life that we all know we should be.

Summer With Purpose: Forgiveness

Summer is here! But before you know it, summer will be over. Most of us have great intentions about what we want to do and who we want to be. In at least three different places in the New Testament, Jesus says, “If you do not forgive your brother and sister, then God will not forgive you.” This statement carries some serious weight in our spiritual life and eternity. So why does it fly under the radar? Why is forgiving someone so hard and yet so important. Join Pastor Tim as he challenges us to be intentional in the areas of our life that we all know we should be.
