Every day we rise. But every day, do we shine?

Rise & Shine - Week 5 - Sermon Only

Overcoming Adversity • March 29, 2020 • Pastor Aaron Sturgis

Jesus never promised us a life without suffering. Instead, He promised Himself: the best gift of all. How do we "rise & shine" even when life gets hard. Because Jesus already overcame the brokenness that exists all around us we have the freedom to overcome it too. Matthew 5:13-16 Isaiah 42:6 John 16:33 Romans 12:12 Joyful in Hope. Patient in Affliction. Faithful in Prayer.

Changing Your Mind • March 22, 2020 • Pastor Aaron Sturgis

This week we take a look at how Jesus chose His closest companions and what we can learn from it. CLOSEST (in the center of a circle with a bunch of other bigger circles…I’ll explain) Matthew 5:1-2 (MSG translation) Romans 12:9-10

Sacrificial Living • March 15, 2020 • Pastor Aaron Sturgis

“Leaders are the ones willing to look out for those to the left of them and right of them. They are often willing to sacrifice their own comfort for ours, even when they disagree with us. Trust is simply a matter of shared opinions. Trust is a biological reaction to the belief that someone has our well-being at heart. Leaders are the ones who are willing to give up something of their own for us. Their time, their energy, their money, maybe even the food off their plate. When it matters, leaders choose to eat last.” Simon Sinek Romans 12:1 Practice Humility. Proverbs 16:18 Practice Hospitality. Romans 12:13 Practice Generosity. Romans 12:8, Romans 12:13, Romans 12:20 Matthew 26:23
