    Isaiah - Week 6

    Unlikely Ways, Unending Hope

    Isaiah 44:24-45:25



    Teacher: Jon Morales, Lead Pastor at Oak Pointe Church



    Streaming services are filled with low-budget chick flicks telling the same old story.



    From the millionth Cinderella story to the Prince of Who Knows Where falling for a small-town girl, these movies come and go without anyone blinking an eye. While the same-old and predictable are a dime a dozen, the films that top box offices and build franchises are of a different kind—original and unexpected. Among the greatest plot twists in cinematic history, this iconic line says it all: “No. I am your father.”



    If we love unpredictability on the silver screen, why do we complain when things don’t go the way we expect in real life? Join us this Sunday as our newest message, “Unlikely Ways, Unending Hope,” challenges our response when God works in ways we didn’t see coming

    Remember. Return. Redeemed!

    Isaiah 43:22-44:23



    Teacher: Jon Morales, Lead Pastor at Oak Pointe Church



    April showers bring May flowers.



    Whether you’re tending flower beds, sowing a vegetable garden, or wrangling a lawn that seems to grow a foot a week, you know what a difference those showers make. Without rain, you’d be left with nothing but a crispy patch of hay and some floppy zucchini.



    Biblically, water is often used as a symbol of life. We understand this, so we’ve invented hoses, watering cans, and sprinkler systems to keep our yards healthy under the summer sun. But there’s a type of dryness – the kind the prophets warn about – that runs much deeper than our lawns.



    Join us this Sunday as our upcoming message, “Remember. Return. Redeemed!” reveals why our lives so often feel barren, empty, and tired – and where to find Water that never runs dry.

    A New Thing!

    Isaiah 42:18-43:21



    Teacher: Jon Morales, Lead Pastor at Oak Pointe Church



    The 2018 film Beautiful Boy depicts the true story of a father’s struggle to redeem his son from the drug addiction that has torn their lives apart.



    Viewers grieve for a dad willing to give everything for his son, yet powerless to save him. We ache as the hope we once held gives way to despair. And we long for the happy ending that never comes.



    It’s stories like these that reveal a deep longing for our own happily ever after, and our yet-deeper fear that it won’t come. Join us this Sunday as our newest message, “A New Thing!” tells another true story—one of a different Father, and with a different kind of ending.

    Isaiah - Week 3

    Stupidity of Idols, Supremacy of God, Satisfaction in Christ


    Isaiah 41:21 – 42:17



    Teacher: Charlie Koopman, Worship Arts Pastor at Oak Pointe Church



    “Prestige, power, privilege—at what price?”



    The closing words of Psychology Today’s “The Problem with Rich Kids,” this question is a response to startling findings about the effects of affluence on the next generation. After more than a decade of research, the author reports disturbingly higher rates of substance abuse, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, cheating, and stealing among wealthy youth, as compared to their lower-income peers.



    Studies like these beg the question, does money really buy happiness? Join us this Sunday as our upcoming message, “Stupidity of Idols, Satisfaction in Christ,” challenges us to exchange empty promises and cheap substitutes for the real thing.

    Can Your Life Turn Around?

    Isaiah 41:1-20



    Teacher: Jon Morales, Lead Pastor at Oak Pointe Church



    There’s power in a good pep talk.



    A coach’s half-time huddle changes the course of the game. An officer’s rallying cry turns the tide of the battle. A politician’s address inspires a nation. And a father’s reassurance gets two skinned knees back up on the bike.



    Browbeaten by fear and shame, there’s only one thing that gives us the strength to try again: Hope.



    Join us this Sunday as our upcoming message, “Can Your Life Turn Around?” speaks a word of hope to the weary, anxious, and ashamed.

    Galatians 5:13-26



    Teacher: Caleb Middleton, High School Pastor / Student Director at Oak Pointe Church



    If we’re honest, don’t we act a bit differently behind closed doors?



    We can all think of a time our true colors shone through – and it wasn’t pretty. Like when you thought you pressed mute before screaming at the kids. Or that time you pocket-dialed the friend you were trash-talking. Or maybe that Sunday you road-raged in the church parking lot.



    It’s moments like these that remind us just how wide the gap is between who we want to be and who we actually are. Ouch.



    Join us this Sunday as our upcoming message, “Life in the Spirit,” reveals a better way. Tired of striving to do better, look better, and be better? Meet the One who closes the gap
