This Palm Sunday, we look back at Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Crowds surrounded Him and honored him with praises and palm branches. But was something missing? The same people who shouted Hosanna this day were the same ones who shouted "Crucify Him!" a few days later. How did this show of worship turn to the Garden of Gethsemane and the cross itself? Are there times that praise can be misused? What does praise truly require of us? Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he examines the concept of praise in our relationship with God this Palm Sunday in his sermon, "When Your Praise Is Not Enough."
When Your Praise Is Not Enough

An Anchor of the Soul
August 18, 2019 • Pastor Scott Phenis
Life is often described as an ocean, filled with waves that toss us and dash us against obstacles. And it earns this metaphor. Life can be wild and unpredictable. And in a world that seems obsessed with tossing us every which way, what we need is something to keep us stead and unmoving. Christ refers to Himself as the Rock of Ages, an immovable point in a world that shifts with every passing hour. But how do we anchor ourselves to this Rock? What must we do to ensure that we have an anchor to keep us safe from the storms of life? Join Pastor Scott Phenis as he examines these questions in An Anchor of the Soul.
A Prescription for Prayer
August 7, 2019 • Pastor Scott Phenis
When we face injury or hardship, it's easy to feel like the bottom is dropping out from underneath us. In many ways, despair is like a sickness that infects our deepest being. And as much as we'd like to, we cannot stave it off on our own. It takes over and weakens us in a way that we feel we cannot recover from. It is in these times that we need to remember that there is a prescription we have to defeat despair. In every situation, in every trial, we are prescribed to pray. Prayer is a balm for that deep wound. Join Pastor Scott Phenis as he examines the power of prayer in A Prescription for Prayer.
