Current 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.”

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.

Sermon Series: “When Mercy Triumphs”

At the core of the Easter message is the idea of mercy- God showing mercy to us in Jesus. We like the idea of mercy for ourselves, but have a difficult time showing mercy to others. In the light of Easter, who are the people around us to whom God would have us be messengers, and deliverers of mercy?

Being a Messenger of Mercy (Sermon 5/21/17)

As we survey our world, we are drawn to the conclusion that many times it is not a very friendly place. As God sends you out into the world, who are the people that God would have you intentionally show mercy?

    Is My Home a Place of Mercy? (Sermon 5/14/17)

    Home should be a safe place; but for many, it is a place to escape from, not escape to. Whatever your background may have been, you can make your home a place of mercy.

    Am I An Ogre Or An Angel? (Sermon (4/30/17)

    How do people perceive me? Am I someone that people run to in order to receive mercy, or from whom they run? When I think or talk about mercy, am I always waiting for someone else to step in?

    A Church Built on Failures (Sermon 4/23/17)

    We all hope we will never be caught or punished when we fail. When we think we have “gotten away” with something, do we celebrate, or look to change?
