Have you ever felt alone? Disconnected? Surrounded by people, yet isolated somehow? Technology has made us more connected than ever, yet, studies increasingly show that we are lonelier than ever. And with the safety measures of social distancing and self-quarantining because of this pandemic, connecting with people isn't as easy as it used to be. So what do we do? Zoom meeting? Facetime? Or do we look to Scripture and see how God has always had a way of making lonely places serve greater purposes? Join us as we discuss the idea of learning to embrace the lonely places we may be experiencing, and the courage that comes from realizing we're never really alone.
Learning to Embrace the Lonely Place

There are times in our lives where our lonely place is actually a hiding place. In other words, we're in that place because we've chosen to be, because we've chosen to hide from something God has called us to help with. But God in His grace, will actually come to us in our hiding place, call us to be courageous, and then tells us one astounding truth that gives us all the courage we need to stop hiding and start helping.
Alone pt.5 - With the Wild Beasts
September 6, 2020 • Pastor Thomas-Steele
The Apostle Peter tells us, "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" (1 Peter 5:8). Well, being alone makes us even more vulnerable to his attacks and temptations. But this week, we're going to learn from a time where Jesus was tested and tempted by the devil, and we're going to see that Jesus shows us our foundation for fighting temptations, and that in this, we're never really alone in the fight.
