Choosing obedience to God doesn’t have to look complicated. Obedience is something we all interact with throughout our lives. We have all been told at some point we need to do something a certain way. Some of us might have some troubling thoughts or difficulty when it comes to following or not following directions. Whatever our individual experience with obedience may be, we all have a certain way we view obedience to God. This past Sunday, our Children’s Pastor Garrett Cole shared with us that God doesn’t desire us to be obedient because He’s secretly entertained by us trying to figure out what He wants us to do. God’s heart is that we understand that we have the privilege of aligning our hearts with His by saying yes to Him every day. Garrett shared how being obedient to Him reaps fruit in our lives in the form of more of Him. By partnering with God in the little and the big, we receive more peace, more joy, more patience, and more love for Him and His creation.

We the Church: Humility & Brokenness
July 19, 2020 • Ashlee Hardy
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." When you think of humility and brokenness, what comes to mind? In this sermon, Ashlee Hardy describes brokenness not as the quality of being crushed in spirit, but of being humble and moldable in the hands of the Lord. Ashlee powerfully shares about the humble and contrite heart, and how by choosing humility and brokenness in serving those around us, we receive treasure in heaven that far exceeds anything we could desire here on earth.
