Our First Five: "Generosity" - Andy Nixon
When Andy gives, he realizes that the relationships he’s formed matter. Giving and relationship are intertwined. Whenever we make the decision to give and invest, we see God move in every other area of our lives.
Our First Five: "Service" - Amanda Davis
For Amanda's first sermon, she dives into the importance of service, and what a life lived with that purpose looks like.
Our First Five: "Service" - Andy Nixon
As we talk about loving others as we love ourselves, we have a lot of things to overcome - mostly, ourselves.
Paul viewed himself fully as a servant of Jesus Christ - to him, that was his identity. If we did the same, we could avoid falling into all sorts of traps.
COVID has separated us from people and from having a mission. Andy talks about finding a way back.
Our First Five: "Community" - Jordan Czichos
In Jordan's first sermon at our church, she dives into the parable of the talents, and what happens when you fail to live out the mission that God has given you.
Our First Five: "Worship" - Andy Nixon
Keeping the Sabbath holy is a physical and specific act - we have to go out of our way to set it aside in order to worship the Lord.
As we enter a new series about the tenets that make up our church, Andy lays out three ways to make the most of your Sabbath.
Forward Together: "God On Trial" - Andy Nixon
Andy points out that Elijah is much harsher to the prophets of Baal than we like to admit - the things Elijah said are so alarming that scholars later dialed it down, thinking surely Elijah could not have said something like this. But Elijah knew that God was with him.
Plus, Andy returns to baseball metaphors - twice! - because the Astros won 11 in a row. And, of course, he jinxes them immediately.
AMA is what I’ve always wanted from church leadership
The AMA podcasts are particularly thought-provoking and inspiring. I love hearing Andy, Brandi, and everyone else discuss tough issues and relate everything back to the church and the gospel. Listening to these is truly a faith building experience regardless of your denomination.
Solid podcasts of some great messages from this church. I don’t attend but like the care they take in crafting these episodes.
