    More Control to More Missionaries, Part 3

    More Control to More Missionaries, Part 3

    Have you ever done something silly and then had someone ask you, “What were you thinking??” It’s easy, with the hectic pace of life or the simple force of habit, to do things without thinking. But we’ve been made for more than doing things without thinking. If we’re going to move beyond relying on our own control of circumstances to trusting God wherever He places us, then we will have to be renewed in the spirit of our minds. In this sermon, we continue our series in the book of Ephesians and our focus on making an impact as everyday missionaries.

    More Control to More Missionaries, Part 2

    More than likely, just a few weeks ago, a variety of gifts were given and received in your home. Big and small ones, expensive and cheap ones, exciting and boring ones were given and received…and now comes the question…”What do I do with all this stuff?” Some of it will quickly break and end up in the trash, some will be placed in the back of the closet and forgotten, and some will make their way to the “re-gifting” box for next year…but there are some gifts which will be put to good use. In fact, the very BEST gifts are the ones that end up BEING USED…the ones that fulfill the purpose for which they were given. Join us as we dig into Scripture and take a look at some amazing gifts that God has given to us to equip us for our calling as everyday missionaries.

    In this sermon, we continue our theme for the year - Made for More. Jesus designed His church to take the fullness of Christ into every corner of culture and every sphere of society. That is a huge calling and God handpicked you to be a part of it. We're praying our theme will shatter your small dreams and God will awaken you to the reality that you were made for more. Join us as we dig back into the book of Ephesians.

    Now that the gifts have been unwrapped and the organizing and reorganizing has begun, you’ve probably been thinking about the new year. 2020. Wow! Remember back in the year 2000 when we thought all computers were going to explode? Time has flown and we still have computers intact.
    As you reflect over the past year and begin to plan for the new year, we will look through the book of Philippians at the lives of a few men. We will notice some healthy, godly habits that we can make a part of our lives for 2020.

    No Room for a New Life

    No Room for a New Life

    The incarnation of Jesus wasn't the end of God's work in human life, it was just the beginning. Enjoy the reality that our lives don't have to be perfect, we just need to have enough faith to follow Jesus. (The fun quiz on the Christmas story in this message is more black and white, though!)

    No Room for Another King

    No Room for Another King

    Everyone knows that in any kingdom there is only room for one king. That’s what makes the Magi’s request to Herod so startling. Herod is the king of the Jews and they ask to see the king of the Jews, but they’re not talking about him. What a scene that must have been. We explore it together in this sermon as we consider the question of who is on the throne of your life? Remember, there is only room for one king.
