How should Christians deal with racism in our modern context? How do we atone for our past failures to recognize the inherent dignity of our brothers and sisters? In this first installment of our new series How To Neighbor, Pastor Adam unpacks 1 Peter 2 to show how, despite all opposition, the races must be reconciled in the people of Jesus.

In the United States, there are about 400,000 children in the foster care system, and there are about 100,000 children still waiting to be adopted. In this final sermon of the How To Neighbor series, Pastor Adam illustrates how the Church can step in to embrace the orphaned among us, and shows from the Scripture that if God cares for the orphaned, so must his church.

The poor are always with us, but we often feel shame or guilt around their presence, and many times Christians feel paralyzed by the scale of poverty in our nation and around the world. How can Christians fulfill Christ's instructions to help the poor without robbing them of the autonomy and dignity of personal responsibility? In this sermon, Pastor Donny explores the Scriptures that if Christ empowers the poor, so should we.
