“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!
Christianity has become synonymous with a particular political party. But the idea that Christianity could become synonymous with a government was completely unimaginable to the first-century church. For the first 300 years, Christians were persecuted for their faith, but that all changed with Constantine. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at the words of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane to Peter.
You probably didn’t read it in Sunday school and you probably never memorized it, but Deuteronomy 13:6-11 has had a significant impact on the history of Christianity. Unfortunately, the impact has been incredibly detrimental. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at what it means to live like Jesus.
In a recent LifeWay Research survey of young adults (aged 23 to 30), two-thirds of those surveyed said between the ages of 18 to 22, they stopped going to church for at least a year. When asked, “why?” a third of them said they felt churches were hypocritical or judgmental. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:1-5 and unpacks what Jesus says about judgement, truth, and love.
There is something fundamental about saying you’re sorry. We teach it to our kids from a very young age. But just like our kids, it’s easy to demand someone say sorry to you, but when we have to say sorry it’s much more difficult. We’ve all heard apologies that aren’t really apologies: “If I hurt you, I’m sorry” “I’m sorry you feel that way!” “I’m sorry you feel that way”. In fact, many of us when faced with the failings of our own past would rather ignore and avoid our past wrongdoings rather than face them and ask for forgiveness. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at 5 hangups that can keep us from apologizing.
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.

Wherever this summer takes you, at home, at work, or on vacation, commit yourself to learning who Jesus was and how he chose to live his life.
