Shema to Shalom

2 Timothy

September 30, 2018 • Pastor Joe Tepe

Now that we've completed our Foundations series, this Sunday we looked at how these essential truths transform the way we live. Sometimes we can read the Bible and simply move on with our day, or come to church and hear a sermon, and then leave unchanged. This Sunday, we unpacked how we can put into practice the things we've learned about the foundations of Christian faith. We want to be people who are transformed by God's word as we become more and more like his Jesus.

Joy

December 23, 2018 • Pastor Ben Cross

This Sunday, we learned about joy as Christians, and not just the mercy God gives us, but the grace of salvation.

Your Prayers Matter - Community Leader Updates

September 23, 2018 • Pastor Ben Cross

Your prayers matter. The book of James says that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Prayer is one of the primary weapons a Christian has to see heaven break through. God invites us to approach him and ask to move his hand. That’s why this Sunday we invited leaders from our cities to share how we can be praying in very specific ways for our community. You’ll get to hear from the mayors of Springfield and Eugene, the new Eugene Chief of Police, and other community leaders who will share insight for us to be praying about. As we kick off Fall here at First B, we want to start the season in prayer and with a continued outward focus towards our cities. This was a bit of a different type of Sunday, as we heard from these local leaders and we dedicate a bulk of our normal teaching time to give our attention to learn how we can pray this year.

Scatter to Gather: Part 2, We Gather

Acts 2 • July 22, 2018 • Pastor Paul Herriott

This Sunday, we looked at the purpose of gathering as the church. We looked at the example of the early church as we unpack the priorities and values of our own gatherings.
