THE FIRST OF MANY | PART 11 Our passage this Sunday is often used in Pastoral ordination and installation services. In 2 Timothy 4:1-4 we can see Paul passing the leadership baton to his protege and charging him with the responsibility of leading a church. It won’t be easy for Timothy because there are some problems in Ephesus he will need to address. Paul has no doubt, Timothy is the one to take on the position and work of Pastor at the Ephesus church plant.

Part 1 | No to Fear | Yes to Power, Love, and Self Control
The First of Many • June 14, 2020 • Pastor Travis
Paul is at the end of his earthly ministry and is in prison. He has Luke by his side to help write his final encouragements to the church. One such letter is sent to his beloved Timothy, whom he has raised up to know Christ. He charges Timothy, and us, to stand up boldly for Christ. Soo not be governed by fear but instead be filled by the power, love, and self-control of the spirit of God. Join us this Sunday as we begin our series on 2 Timothy.
Part 2 | Our Holy Calling
The First of Many • June 21, 2020 • Pastor Travis
Jesus has defeated the grave in order to give you life. So, do not be ashamed but instead walk boldly in Christ. The covenant of grace provides us with the purpose and grace to share the gospel message with the lost and broken world. Therefore, we can be agents of reconciliation bringing hope to the world by sharing the gospel of Christ with one another as we grow in Him. Join us this Sunday as we focus on 2 Timothy 1:8-11 and continue in our series 2 Timothy, The First of Many.
Part 3 | I Am Not Ashamed
The First of Many • June 28, 2020 • Pastor Marty
Paul writes about "being ashamed" several times in his letter to Timothy. The sense of being ashamed is a powerful emotion that affects our actions and reactions. Why does Paul bring this subject up for Timothy and indirectly to us? The temptation to back away from identifying with Jesus Christ and the message of Good News has been a concern since the beginning of the Church. Listen Sunday as Marty attempts to show how Paul encourages Timothy and us to be Confidently Faithful (the opposite of Ashamed).
