In Galatians 4, Paul shares that each one of us has been purchased from the slave block, to be included in the family of God. This understanding of what God has done for us should form the basis of our identity.
Each of us has a deeply ingrained need to be accepted. It’s what helps us form relationships, it’s what creates community, and it’s how we develop our self-image. However, what happens when the source of that self-image becomes more about what we do than who we are? Join Pastor Tim as he challenges us to live as accepted, not those working to be accepted.
Psalm 23 says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures”. But what if our picture of green pastures is all wrong? Join Pastor Tim as he challenges our view of what it means for God to provide all that we need. Could it be that our view of what we think God should do for us is actually getting in the way of us experiencing the breakthrough of miraculous provision?

Each of us has been given a supernatural gift, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a sign of God anointing on your life as a priest, king, and prophet. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at 1 John 2:27 and shows that each and every one of us is anointed for ministry.
Each of us has been given a supernatural gift. However, it is one thing to receive a supernatural gift from the Holy Spirit, it is something else to know when and how to use it. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at Acts 21 and shares some guardrails for using our prophetic gift in the church.
*Quick correction: At one point in the sermon I was sharing about our recent struggles and accidentally said infidelity instead of infertility.
Each of us has been given a gift, but are we more invested in the gift than the giver? Join Pastor Tim as he looks at Paul’s instructions to the Corinthian church in 1 Corinthians 12-14. When we understand who the gift is from and who the gifts are for, we understand our role as a conduit to building up the church through a naturally supernatural life.
Each of us has experiences in our life that mark us. We remember when something happened to us and it changes the way we live. Your spiritual life is no different. The filling of the Holy Spirit is a spiritual trail marker that helps us affirmatively answer the Apostle Paul’s question to the Ephesian Christians, “Have you received the Holy Spirit?”
At Pentecost, Peter declared to the crowd that anyone who believed in Jesus, repented of their sin, and was baptized, would be given the gift of the Holy Spirit. Every believer has the Holy Spirit within them, much like a pilot light. Whether you recognize Him or not, he is there. So join Pastor Tim as he looks at what it means to live by the spirit and be naturally supernatural.
Join us this long weekend as we reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus made available to each and every one of us. Isaiah 53 states that through Jesus’ death on the cross, he has secured our shalom. This concept of shalom includes wholeness in every aspect of our lives; our body, our mind, and our relationships with others.
Pastor Libby will be sharing her testimony about how she came to know Christ and the difference he has made in her life. Libby has been a part of our community here in Plattsville and at Plattsville Church for many years now. Whether you are well acquainted with Libby and her family or not, I guarantee that there is more to her story that you should hear. Libby grew up in Australia, where God got a hold of her heart as she witnessed God’s miraculous touch in her family.
