From Death to Life

Lead Pastor Brent Clark begins a new series looking at how life in the kingdom is upside down from how we typically think life should be. He looks at Mark 8 and how Jesus tells us if we want to really live, we must die to ourselves.

What’s the Point of Church?

Introduction What do you think comes to mind when most people hear the word church? Your friends, neighbors, coworkers… when they hear the word church, what do you think comes to their mind? What comes to mind when YOU hear the word church? You may wonder why we would ask these questions. Well, we’ve been a series where over the last 3 weeks we have been trying to ask and answer the question, “What’s the point?” This is a question that can wreak havoc in our…

What’s the Point of Judgment

Introduction Two weeks ago Pastor Brent taught how the point of Jesus’ life was to innaugarate the Kingdom of God on this earth and give us a glimpse of what the Kingdom will look like.  Last week he taught that the point of Jesus’ death was to give us victory over sin and death. Today I’ll be answering the question: What’s the Point of God’s Judgment?  In saying that, I know some of you might be looking to make an…

Riding the Waves

 Introduction This week, Vacation Bible School has all been about one theme: Catching the Wave of God’s Amazing Love. What is fascinating about this statement is the idea of the wave.  Because depending on your perspective, and honestly your location, the wave can have either a positive or a negative connotation. It is good when you are on top of the wave, riding that wave to the shore, but when the waves are out of control, crashing all around you,…

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. So, way to go, quitters!  Just kidding. Even though many of us, me included, are not resolution makers, for many of us, the new year represents a fresh start, a chance to start over, to…

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…

A Picture Perfect Christmas: The Magi

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. The Picture Last week we began our Christmas series and we are calling it “A Picture Perfect Christmas.” We are looking at the original Christmas scene—the nativity and those people or images that we normally associate with that one night in Bethlehem so long ago. When we think of a picture perfect Christmas, we think of things like a Norman Rockwell painting, or we might even envision perfect family photos. We…

What Do You See?

What’s Holding us Back? For many of us, evangelism is one of our least favorite aspects of Christianity.  It makes us feel uncomfortable and pushy.  But telling the world about the hope we have in Jesus is such an important topic that we have to keep drilling into it – looking at our role and our responsibility in telling others this Good News. In our last message, Pastor Brent did a great job setting up this series by unpacking our…
