    Can I Wait and Be Content? (Sermon 11/5/17)

    We are not very patient people. We want what we want now. Waiting is not only necessary in our lives, but can be very healing as well.

    The Faith to Commit (Sermon 10/22/17)

    In our culture today, people find it hard to commit to anything. Commitment for many is only as good as the next best text message we receive. God designed us to be people of commitment-for our own good, and for the good of others.

    On Your Mark, Get Set… (Sermon 10/8/17)
    We hear about them, we read stories about them, but do we really believe in them? Talking about miracles brings out the cynic and skeptic in the best of people.
     
    Do miracles really exist? Would you know one if you saw one? Do you really want one in your life?

    Do I Want To Imagine My Life Can Be Different?

    We look at people with great dreams and they can make us tired or depressed. Our lives can seem so every day, and we wonder how they got to where they are. God has a vision for your life that is far greater than you can imagine.

       How well do you know God’s vision for your life? Do you want to know?

    Do I Want to Believe in Something?

    Most people, if asked, do believe in something. However when it comes to issues of faith, many will hesitate to commit to anything, or not admit if they have doubts. Are there any tangible benefits to believing in Christ? How well do you understand what “belief in Jesus” really means?

    Mr. How Do You Do (Sermon 9/17/17)

    Join us in welcoming our special guest Author/Speaker Kelly Johnson (& Mr. How Do You Do). Kelly firmly believes that (no matter your age) Jesus has exciting plans to fulfill in and through your life.  She’s watched Him fulfill amazing feats as she simply obeyed and followed. She’s worked in ministry at churches, inner-city youth organizations, World Relief and is the Founder of Two by Two Prayer, a prayer movement based in Memphis, TN.  She’s spoken at retreats and ministry events across the country and internationally, yet she never underestimates the incredible value of ministry one-on-one/ neighbor to neighbor. Kelly’s heart to instill truth to the next generation led her to write an exciting new children’s series. She’s convinced that as children (of all ages) encounter Jesus’ love and character—in a relational way—their lives will be forever changed. She’s a catalytic leader, an excellent communicator and has a gift for scattering joy and hope wherever she goes.

    God Will Make A Way (Sermon 9/10/17)

    When you face those seemingly unanswerable questions in life, when you come to those supposedly impassable roadblocks, it is so good to be reminded that our past failures are not final and our pain need not be fatal. It’s good to know that our Creator is willing to work with us, to be patient and understanding with us, to give us many opportunities to learn and grow. He doesn’t cast us away when we fail. He doesn’t turn His back on us.

    Do I Really Want Faith? (Sermon 9/3/17)
    As followers of Jesus we say we live by faith. However many really don’t know what real faith is. Others, really don’t want to live by faith because real faith changes us and people around us. We like the idea of faith, but not the responsibilities of faith. A few would rather live in fear, than faith.
    Do you want to live in faith or fear?

Sermon Series: “At the Beach” 

Summers are a great time for fun and a change of pace. This summer in our family teaching series, “At the Beach,” we look at the things we enjoy on the beach, and use them as object lessons to grow closer to God. The kids and the adults will be using the same Scriptures, with the same themes, so all can learn and grow together- and know how to continue the Sunday conversations on throughout the week as we strive to be a “lighthouse” rather than a “clubhouse.”

Don’t Throw In Your Towel (Sermon 8/27/17)

Everyone at some point in his or her life has been on one end or the other of the “snap the towel” game. If you are not expecting it, a wet towel can get you moving.

What will it take to get you moving in your spiritual life?

    Surfing the Crest (Sermon 7/16/17)
    By keeping his eyes on Jesus, Peter was able to do something amazing. If we lock our eyes on Jesus, he will lead us as well.
    - What can we ask Jesus to lead us through as a family?
    - How can we keep our eyes focused on Him?
    - Will we take time this week in our home to make sure we are focused on Jesus?

    Soaking Up The Sun (Son) (Sermon 7/9/17)

    People go to the beach for many reasons. Swim, play, relax or sit and soak up the sun. Too much sun is not good for us at the beach. The same should not be true for being with God’s Son.

    Watch Out for the Waves (Sermon 7/2/17)
    One of the great benefits of being together is that we are all helping each other, and helping the church to grow up as followers of Jesus Christ, so that we don’t get knocked over.

Sermon Series: “Hope for Recovery”

Short series on recovery.

When The Going Gets Tough, Do I Get Going? (Sermon 6/25/17)
Don Sutton is a pitcher you don’t hear a lot about. He wasn’t flamboyant. He didn’t win many major awards. He pitched through six presidential administrations, four trades, and yet won over 300 games in his career. He did it simply by doing consistently what he was trained and called to do. Are you equipped and ready to walk through the long haul of “getting it done” in your life?

    So Three Men Walk Into A ….. (Sermon 6/18/17)
    In culture and literature, we are told that to be a man you had to be tough and go it alone. Many buy in to the stereotype, and in doing so set themselves up for failure. As men, or “men to be” are you preparing yourself for success or failure? Who have you invited in to be a part of your story, and what qualities should these people embody?

    Recovery From “They” To “We” (Sermon 6/11/17)
    A national survey on Drug Use and Health estimates 21.5 million Americans aged 12 and older battled a substance abuse disorder in 2014. Those who struggle with substance abuse and are in need of treatment are not just, “those people over there” but live close by us. As such, we are called to help fight this national epidemic together. Healing requires emotional, physical and spiritual support, and yet the last piece is the one most often overlooked.

    Hope For Recovery ~ Taking A Personal Inventory (Sermon 6/4/17)
    Summer is great for many things. Rest, renewal, housecleaning. Yard sales are the opportunity many take to examine and discard what they have added to their household from the prior year, that they now know they really didn’t need. Hope for recovery starts by taking an honest inventory of the things in our heart, which are holding us back and not helping us move forward.

    Things Remembered (Sermon 5/28/17)

    Over 1.1 million men and women have died to guarantee our freedom as Americans. On this Memorial Day, and this Ascension Sunday, as followers of Jesus, we also need to pause and remember the far greater gift given to us in Christ.
