Faith Themes in Second Timothy Today we are wrapping up a series called “Faithful.” We have looked at each of the major themes in a letter the Apostle Paul wrote to his protégé, Timothy. This is Second Timothy in our Bibles. Paul penned this letter while he was in prison. It is the last preserved correspondence we have between Paul and Timothy. In the letter, Paul wants to guide Timothy…

Faithful: Enduring Faith

Commitment One of thehardest things for me as a parent is getting my kids to followthrough with the commitments they’vemade, and even more so on the commitments I have made for them. Maybe you’ve experienced this as well. Your child says they wantto play a sport or do some activity, but after abouttwo days or weeks into it, after a few practices, or after having to get upearly one time for it, they decide they don’t wantto do it anymore.…

Faithful: Pure Faith

During my “sentence,” I was fortunate enough…

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Heroes and Villains I am a self-professed nerd. I love for Star Trek. This love led me at one time to attend a Star Trek convention. One thing I have never had a great love for was comic books or graphic novels. I read a lot already, so reading is rarely a recreational activity for me. But, I do love comic book movies. Batman. Spiderman. Superman. X-Men. The Avengers.…

The Other Guy – The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have to begin by saying  I was raised in a Pentecostal home, so this series on the Holy Spirit covers topics I am well versed in.  For those who aren’t familiar with the word “Pentecostal” — it’s a sub-group of Christians who expect the supernatural works of the Holy Spirit to show up in their lives on a regular basis.   So, I was given the opportunity to share about the gifts of the…

This series is built on the idea that when people encounter God, when we say yes to Jesus and begin the faith journey of following him, radical changes occur in our lives.  The first week, we looked at how one of the first things that happen when we put our faith in Jesus is…
