a [mind] set on Joy
Is Contentment for Everyone?
Philippians 4:10-13 • May 24, 2020 • Tamara Burdon
Tamara speaks to us from Philippians 4 discovering why Paul said, he learned the secret to contentment! Can contentment really be learned? Or, is possible for only a select few? Tamara asked the question 'Is Christ alone sufficient for you?' We also had some time to honor all those who have served our country this memorial day weekend.
The Transforming Power of Prayer
Philippians 4:4-9 • May 17, 2020 • Nick Herbert
In this text Paul encourages us to pray about all things. I want to say a bit today about what prayer is, why it matters and how we can grow in prayer - especially in this season. *Disclaimer: we apologize for the poor connection, we had some technical issues but it gets better once Nick gets into his talk. We hope you are able to endure for this very powerful word about prayer.
The Authentic Faith That Surpasses Worth!
Philippians 3:1-21 • May 10, 2020 • Al Hardy
Would you say that your Faith is more valuable to you than anything else? In this section of Philippians, Paul warns us not to settle for a faith that is anything other than of 'surpassing worth'. He tells us both what to avoid and the one thing we must do to lay hold of this extraordinary gift.
Shining as Lights
Philippians 2:12-18 • May 3, 2020 • Matthew Hemsley
We often read scriptures like Philippians 2 with its encouragement to "shine as lights” (v. 15) as being about us as individuals, asking each of us to up our own game. But actually Paul is talking about a community, how it can up its game and be a light. What might the witness of a community look like to a world in darkness?
A Mind Set for Joy
Philippians 1:3-6 & 12-27 • April 19, 2020 • Al Hardy
How many of us would say that joy permeates our lives?...especially right now! As we start a new series looking at the book of Philippians we explore the reasons Paul has incredible joy no matter what and we seek to be people who can do the same.
