God is Sovereign

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction Have you ever stopped to think about why you are where you are and what brought that about? Was it dumb luck or was God involved somehow? To be up front, I can tell you that as an eight year old boy growing up in southwest Arkansas, I never, not once, had the thought, “You know, when I’m 40, I’d like to be pastoring a church in Iowa.”…

New Series called God Is Today it is my pleasure to kick off a new message series we’re calling “God Is.”  Now I know, some of you might already be feeling a little disappointed going from such a practical series as GetFit to one you expect to be so dry and boring.   But I promise this series won’t be dry and disconnected from the life you are living…

Get Fit Recap I’m so glad to have the privilege of wrapping up this series we’re calling GetFit today.  And I’m not glad because I’m tired of it, but because it’s been such a helpful series for so many of you.   Here is a brief recap of the ways we want to help you GetFit in 2016.  We kicked off this series the first Sunday of January talking about being BodyFit. …

SpiritFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. GetFit Series Over the last four weeks we’ve been talking about how we can get fit in multiple areas of our lives.

We’ve talked about our relational health: making sure our relationships are where they need…

MentalFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction Since the beginning of the new year, we have been talking about something that is usually on everyone’s mind when a new year begins — how to get fit. We have talked about the obvious things, the things people aren’t usually afraid to talk about, some that often we even joke about. We began with discussing how to become BodyFit. The important part isn’t the number on the scale or…

EmotionFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Emotional Immaturity Emotional health is often the most neglected or under-valued kind of health. We put physical health on a pedestal because we’ll die without it; however, we die internally without emotional health. We can’t have healthy relationships and we can’t have healthy spirituality without it.  It’s impossible to be relationally and spiritually mature without emotional maturity. So in what ways do we neglect our emotional health? Emotional UNHEALTH, in it’s extremes,…

RelationFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction We are in a series we call “GetFit – Being Whole and Holy in the New Year.” Statistics show that after the first week, already 25% of you would have given up or failed.

Whole and Holy in the New Year  I love New Year’s celebrations, not for the drunken debauchery or for trying and failing to stay up until midnight, but because it gives me the opportunity to consider what I want to change going into the new year.  That and New Year’s Eve is my anniversary, so that’s special too!  I’m sure I’m not the only one who uses the new year…

After the Picture Perfect Christmas

Sermon Podcast Audio  Your browser does not support the audio element. Picture Perfect We have been looking at the nativity scene during our series, “A Picture Perfect Christmas.”  We have talked about the shepherd’s crook, the Magi, the message of the angels, and the manger. So, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about what happens after the birth of Jesus. We will be looking at Matthew 2:13-16. To give some background to this scene, Herod was the king of Judea during…

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. How Kings are Born Today we are going to continue our series called, “A Picture Perfect Christmas,” where we are looking at the famous nativity scene so many of us associate with Christmas.  But what is so amazing about this scene we keep showing you, is that it wasn’t supposed to be this way.  This is NOT how kings are born into this world. If you want a glimpse…
