Guest speaker Pastor Andy Doyle joins us to continue our series on Discipleship. Andy looks to the parable of the Prodigal Son to view how our interactions with others should be based on the attitudes that God has towards us. Taking our understanding (Head) to relationship (Heart) to walking in obedience (Hands).
Kerilee Van Schooten continues our series on Discipleship by looking at the heart of discipleship and how we love people well through those relationships. Not seeing people as projects, but instead loving them well to reach deeper levels of relationship with Jesus.
Gregory Hyde begins our new series on discipleship by taking a high-level view of discipleship. What do we mean when we say “discipleship”? Why is it important? Gregory looks at the Biblical answers to these questions, explores what it means within our church movement, and explains why the concept of discipleship is crucial to being a follower of Christ.
Gregory Hyde looks into the Palm Sunday account to draw comparisons between the expectations the people in Jerusalem had for Jesus with our own. Christ seeks to do far greater things for us than even we want for ourselves. What do we want Jesus to do in our lives? How do we want Him to do it?
Kerilee Van Schooten continues our series on our Relationship With Jesus as we approach Easter. By looking at Psalm 22, as well as Christ’s final words and final moments on the cross, we’re able to see how expressing our doubt and anguish isn’t sin. We can press into our doubts and find a deeper relationship with God by meeting Him in our darkest, most difficult moments. Also, Christ’s reference to Psalms 22 also indicates the greater picture of fulfilling God’s plan for salvation.
Dean Roberts continues our series on Relationship With Jesus.
Guest speaker Casey Solgos of City of Light church in Aurora continues our Relationship With Jesus series looking at the power of confession and its significance within the season of Lent.
As Christians, we benefit greatly from a daily episode of Holy Spirit guided reflection on our actions and attitudes, our thoughts, words, and deeds with the intention of first exposing and then confessing our sin and receiving the Lord’s forgiveness.
What shame, what secret sin, does God want to put to death in us this season of anticipation of the Resurrection of Jesus?
Gregory Hyde continues our series on Relationship With Jesus by exploring those moments when we don’t “feel” close to God. We may feel inadequate when we don’t have a super-close friendship with Christ that we see modeled by other believers. How do we develop that kind of friendship with Jesus? What does the Bible say about Jesus desiring to be our friend?
Tony Stauffer shares the essentials of what the Bible teaches us about our relationship with Jesus. We are created by a God who desires relationship with His people. Tony covers practical steps to take to build that relationship, as well as guides against allowing shame to keep us from pursuing our relationship with Jesus.
Guest speaker Dr. Jerry Root of Wheaton College shares a message to continue our series on evangelism.
