July 14, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
We've been talking the past few weeks about SOUL PRIORITY; that is, making the health of our soul a priority in our lives. Today we will be looking at how some of the things of our past can be weighing us down and keeping us from God's best for our lives. Like heavy bags, this past hurts, regrets and abuses can overwhelm us. As long as we aren't identifying and dealing with them, we become 'Baggage Handlers.' Jesus died to set us free and it's up to us to cast off the bags.
Boundaries are not bad...they may save your life. • July 7, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
An old farmer once said; "Tight Fences make good neighbors." The meaning was clear. When we have and maintain fences around the boundaries of our lives we are able to clearly define what is, and what is not, our responsibility. Problems arise when we try to do things on 'other people's property' or allow trespassers on our own. In this message we'll see that boundaries are not only biblical, but necessary in order to accomplish God's will for our lives.
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
June 30, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
In the first message of "Soul Priority" Pastor Joe Coudriet discussed the neglected 'leg' of the human trinity; our souls. We often take care of our bodies and we certainly like to feed our Spirit but all too often we neglect soul maintenance. In this message we'll see why we should move boldly towards addressing the things in our soul that might be holding us back from God's best because His Word, now proven by science, shows us that we were "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made"
Cope to Hope
June 23, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
God didn't create us to cope with the unbearable. He made a way for us to walk in victory over even the most painful experiences. In this message, we'll see how our minds were created by God to 'write over' and 're-wire' so that we can live in victory!
The Perfect Storm
June 16, 2019 • Pastor Dawn Coudriet
Job was a man that appeared to have been doing everything right. He had a great family, wealth and he loved God. But, Job was exposed to a storm in his life that not only tested his faith, but took away almost everything dear to him. Despite that, he weathered THE PERFECT STORM and showed us that we can too!
His Ways Aren't Our Ways
Give God Something to Work With • May 26, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
When people get jammed up financially, they often try to work harder to make up the shortfall. But, like our salvation, a gift we cannot earn or work to receive, financial victory is the same...it comes when we do it His way. Because His ways and our ways can be so different, we'll look to God's Word to get perspective.
May 19, 2019 • Pastor Colby Sutter
Have you asked yourself the question; "What am I doing with my life?" "Why am I here?" In this message we will address that question by looking at how Jesus often crossed over through chaos in order to get to the other side during His ministry. What does the other side, that Jesus wants you to cross over to, look like for your life?
Are you getting your daily bread? • April 28, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
On Easter Sunday we talked about how Jesus came, 'not to give bread, but to be bread.' This morning we are going to look at what receiving our 'daily bread' is all about and how, when making bread, the recipe never changes.
Easter 2019-That We Might Have Life
April 21, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
Today we celebrate Easter; the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave. He came that we 'might have life.' But, what kind of life did He die for? Was it one in which He dies and we receive? Or, was it a death that yielded something greater? Something that accomplished a purpose bigger than ourselves. Jesus didn't come to give bread, but to be bread.
Good Friday- Not My Will
What is your prayer? • April 19, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
In the Gospels, as He was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus cried out for the Father to relieve Him of His assignment. BUT, in the end, His desire was not to do what felt best for Him but what had to be done to please the Father. We can all learn a lesson from; "Not my Will."
Palm Sunday- The throng, the Messiah, and the city
April 14, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
It was, as we know it, Palm Sunday. There was a throng there to witness the arrival of their Messiah, their King as He entered the City of Jerusalem. They were cheering wildly and excited as they shouted Hosanna. Just five days later, their cheering had turned to jeering and they watched as He was crucified before their eyes. But just 57 days later the tables were turned as the throngs who so easily were swayed from their praise of the King to His condemnation became passionate about Him again.
Giving God Some Attitude
It's the heart, not the amount. • April 7, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
You've heard the old expression; "Don't give me lip service?" We hear it when someone says the right words but you know that their heart just isn't in to it. Well, when it comes to developing a life of generous living, God isn't looking for a nod of the head, but a bowing of the heart. He's looking for the right attitude. This message is all about "Giving God Some Attitude."
Removing the spirit of mammon and unleashing the Spirit of God • March 31, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
In a prior message we learned that all money has a spirit upon it; the spirit of mammon or the Spirit of God. God's plan is for us to acknowledge His Lordship in our lives through the tithe which not only signifies that our heart is His but that our treasure is too. When we tithe the resources that He has provided to us become 'clean' with His spirit upon it so that it may be used to bring Him glory.
True love is to be a blessing and not a burden • March 24, 2019 • Pastor Colby Sutter
In this message, Pastor Colby Sutter reveals from God's Word that true love is to be a blessing and not a burden. Are you doing what you do in life out of burden or out of love. When you serve God and when you serve others, is it out of burden or out of love. When you do it out of a burden, it robs you of your joy and value and can create selfishness.
What spirit is on your dough? • March 17, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
What spirit resides on your money? The spirit of mammon or the Spirit of God? The difference can make all the difference in the world and for the world. In this message we'll learn that when we are faithful with God's resources we'll be in position to be used by Him even greater.
He set the example. By His grace we can be like Him. • March 10, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
For God so loved the world that HE GAVE! The example is clear. To be Christlike means that we also should be generous in the way that we live. God's not looking for your money, but He is looking for your heart. When He has your money, He has your heart for 'where your treasure is, your heart is also.' A generous heart is God's heart. It was Jesus' mission. It's our example.
Fear, Comfort, Multiplication
Walking in the Spirit brings exponential growth to the believer. • March 3, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
God wants to increase you and yours and He does that when we walk in the 'fear' of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit. The result of a life of seeking God and leading of His Spirit is increase!
Desiring the Holy Spirit
The key to unlocking the power of God. • February 24, 2019 • Pastor Joe Coudriet
When Jesus ascended He sent the Comforter, the Holy Spirit to be with us always. The Holy Spirit desires to be involved in every area of our lives but He will not enter where He is unwanted or unwelcome. The question is, are you desiring the Holy Spirit and His operation in your life? If you are, then He will fill you to overflowing.
Beware of Lions
There's growth and security in Christian community. • February 17, 2019 • Pastor Colby Sutter
The enemy walks around like a lion looking to separate and destroy us because he knows the power of Godly community. This message will teach us how to have Godly community so we can grow in our faith, family and church. We'll also learn about the difference between community and Godly community.
