White Pine Community Church is located in Cumberland, Maine. We exist to help people find and follow Jesus. Through these podcasts, Pastor Greg Sidders and other White Pine leaders provide practical ways to apply God's truth to your life. Join us on Sundays at 10 a.m. at Greely Middle School.
The Story of Joseph
Just think of what God could have done through you if not for what others have done to you.
You were a rising star until that person, or those people, made you the target of their mistreatment. You were betrayed. Blindsided. Bypassed. Accused falsely. Abused. It halted your momentum and downsized your potential.
Or did it? What if unjust setbacks are not obstacles to being used by God, but opportunities for Him to use you like no one else?The post The Story of Joseph first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
The Story of Samson
God has never created a person that He does not want to use to do special things. Everyone in whom the Spirit of God lives has potential beyond their wildest dreams. But why do some of us never fulfill our potential?
In this message, you will hear the story of someone who squandered their mind-blowing potential. It’s a cautionary tale preserved in Scripture to help us avoid the same pitfalls.The post The Story of Samson first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
The Story of David
The story of David and Goliath reads like a children’s Sunday school lesson until you are standing face-to-face with a giant—not necessarily of the flesh-and-blood variety, but in form of an overwhelming challenge. That’s when 1 Samuel 17 feels very relevant. In this message, we take a fresh look at that old story and find in it the keys to winning the battles that we are facing in our lives right now.The post The Story of David first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
The Story of Mary
Do you love Jesus passionately?
If not, you are probably either attracted to or irritated by those who do. What do they know that you don’t know? What do they do that you don’t do?
In this message, you will learn from Mary of Bethany how to cultivate a more passionate love for Christ. The post The Story of Mary first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
The Story of Joshua
There are some people who overestimate their potential to be used by God, but more of us do the opposite: we underestimate what God can do through us.
But what if the people God uses the most are those who expect to be used the least?
In this message, you will learn the common denominator of those who are used most powerfully by God. Hint: It’s not self-confidence.The post The Story of Joshua first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
If you know Jesus, you are familiar with the fuel of grace, the voice of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of Scripture. But do you know how to leverage these divine resources to help others experience transformation?
In this message you will learn, from Jesus, practical lessons on how to use conversational questions to lead others to the life they were created to live.The post Transforming Conversations first appeared on White Pine Community Church.
