    North Coast: Intimacy

    North Coast: Intimacy

    Ross Rodger: Intimacy 

    We were made for connection to God; Deep heart to heart intimate connection. We long for it because God, in His grace, has put into our design a need for His perfect love. This is why people go to the ends of the earth to find the “perfect one”. It’s why from the beginning of time, men have been finding things to worship, be it the gods of weather or fertility or wealth. The scripture says that God has determined our allotted periods and the boundaries of our dwelling place, that we should seek Him, and perhaps feel our way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us. It’s like God has put into our soul a homing device that points us towards an intimate relationship with Him.

    As we begin 2020, the one thing we need to have 20/20 vision on is an intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Join us this week as we put a line in the sand on what is most NB this year.

    (Unfortunately we had trouble recording the sermon at North Coast this past Sunday, however the same message was preached by Ross Rodger a few weeks ago at Florida Road)

    Kloof: Courageous Community P2

    Paul Taylor: Lord Place Me 

    we all want to be part of a community that makes us better than we are. A community that lifts us up and encourages us to discover and use the gifts and talents that God has placed within us. But being or finding that community can be difficult. This week we are going to explore the idea that God places us into relationships for our good, to be a blessing to those he places us with, but ultimately God places us in relationships for the sake of His mission. Seeing community through this lens will cause us to be expectant that God will place us, use us and bless us in right relationships in the church. Join us this week as we explore God’s plan for our relationships.

    North Coast: 2020 Vision

    Deon Smith: 2020 Vision 

    As we begin 2020 we are very excited to have a message that will help us have 2020 vision in terms of who Jesus was and is, and how in His life, He encompassed the names and character of God 

    John 17:6 

    I have revealed Your name to those You have given Me out of the World. They were Yours; You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.

    Paul Taylor: What is a Courageous Community and why do I need one?

    When Jesus decided to change the world, he chose twelve people to do life with and designated them apostles. The plan was that they would be with Him, and that He might send them out. Jesus knew what we often forget, life change happens best in community; That’s where character gets shaped, that’s where we learn our purpose, that’s where we learn how to test the voice of God, community is where we get the courage to step into the calling of God. So, from the very beginning, the “Jesus Movement” was a small group movement, a group of disciples that Jesus did life with. This week we are going to explore how God continues to use small groups of people centered on Jesus to heal, shape and send us out into the world for the sake of His mission.
