The Fifth Letter: Four Faith Killers (5/17/20)

May 17, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

We can sometimes forget that living in isolation does not isolate us from God. What we do in the privacy of our own homes, what we do in the privacy of our own hearts, can make a huge difference in our spiritual lives. Faith in God cannot be quarantined, and our everyday choices and attitudes can end up killing our faith. On Sunday, May 17, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan gives us Four Faith Killers.

What to Take into What is Next • April 19, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

The Second Letter: Only After (4/5/20)

How to wait for Only After • April 5, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

During a crisis, it can be hard to see the purpose or reason why it’s happening. It can be even harder to remember that every moment is in God’s hands.

On Sunday, April 5, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan continues his sermon series, Seven Letters, and shows us how to wait for the “only after.”

Instead of focusing on what we cannot control, let’s look at our priorities and see how we can make the most of it. On Sunday, March 29, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan gives us three steps for keeping first things first.

Lessons from an Exile (3/22/20)

Three Things to Remember in Isolated Times • March 22, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

Plans were broken, dreams disillusioned, and now you are feeling the strain of isolation. While the world seems at the end with this massive world-wide pandemic, you are locked down, stuck inside your house. Long before COVID-19, the apostle John was forced into exile on the island of Patmos. Knowing the strain of isolation and missing loved ones, he wrote seven letters to churches of that time. On Sunday, March 22, 2020, Pastor Chad begins a new sermon series, Seven Letters, and gives us three things to remember in isolated times.
