I Love My Church

Back-to-School Blessing Weekend

August 8, 2021 • Pastor Marty Sloan • Numbers, Genesis, Jeremiah, Psalms

In our sixth week of loving our church, we take a weekend to celebrate and pray over students and educators. We understand the important roles that students and educators play in our culture, and we want to speak life and build them up whenever we can. In this sermon, we want to strengthen anyone heading into the incoming school year.

The Life-giving Church

August 1, 2021 • Pastor Michael Grove • 1 Peter, Acts, 1 Timothy

In our fifth week of loving our church, we'll look at how the church was created to be life-giving. God’s people were designed to be a people of impact in a broken, hurt, lost and dying world. Pastor Michael Grove walks us through how the church can always be life-giving and what are some real-life applications to help us live out a life-giving life.

The Missing Church

July 25, 2021 • Pastor Marty Sloan

In our fourth week of loving our church, we'll look at what the Bible has to say about the rapture. References to it are made throughout the New Testament including from Jesus Himself. It's important to be rapture ready, and how we do that is also found in scripture.

I Love My Messy Church

July 18, 2021 • Pastor Marty Sloan

In our third week of loving our church, we'll look at how we are called as many to live as one body of Christ. The church is messy because people are messy, and the church is filled with people, but if we love God, then we must also enthusiastically love and care for people. Everyone has a specific and purposeful role in the church that God designed just for us!

The Holy Spirit Empowers the Church

July 11, 2021 • Pastor Jason McElwee

In our second week of loving our church, we'll look at how the Holy Spirit empowers the church to make a difference in the world. The Holy Spirit begins by moving in us then moving through us as we interact with those around us. How we live our lives outside the church and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit can transform the world, but first, we have to be attentive to what the Holy Spirit is saying!

July 4, 2021 • Pastor Joel Schmidgall
