Refresh: "Refreshing Your Mind" (Week 2)
When life gets busy, often one of the first things we neglect is the life of our minds. When Solomon felt overwhelmed, however, he devoted himself to wisdom rather than simply trying to make it through by his own grit. In this message, we’ll discuss strategies for doing the same.
Gather Round... The Fire (Week 3)
A crackling fire is often part of a picturesque Christmas gathering. But, as we know, fire can be dangerous. It certainly was for Peter. It was around a fire where Peter denied his Lord. But Peter’s toughest moment eventually proved to be a turning point in his faith. Our toughest moments can be turning points in our faith, too.
Gather Round... The Table (Week 2)
Enjoy hearing the origin story of some of your favorite Christmas songs and carols, along with with a devotion from Pastor Tucker!
Gather Round... The Tree (Week 1)
One of the most common images in the Old Testament for the Messiah is a branch. In Isaiah 11, from what appears to be dead wood comes a new, living branch. Are there things in our lives that are “dead wood”? Even when we feel as though something is lost, Christ can bring new life!
Thanking it Through: How Thanksgiving Manifests (Week 2)
Hannah’s deepest desire was to have a child. When the Lord blesses her with a son, she is so thankful that she dedicates him to Him. When we live thankfully, we also live generously, for we want to share our bounty and blessings with others, honoring the Lord who has given everything to us.
Thanking it Through: When Thanksgiving Works (Week 1)
Paul is clear that we should “give thanks in all circumstances” (verse 18). There is not a moment in our lives when we have nothing to be thankful for. When we do not live thankfully, we are outside of God’s will and are, as Paul says in verse 19, of quenching of the Spirit.
