Summer 2019 Sermon Series
Part 9: Storms
August 4, 2019 • Pastor Luke Uran
Jesus and his disciples faced a sudden, fierce storm one evening while crossing the Sea of Galilee. What happened next helped reveal Jesus’ true identity and authority. Storms also can represent our deepest fears, obstacles and hardships. Even amid life’s strongest winds and waves, Jesus’ presence and purposes prevail.
Part 10: Radical
August 11, 2019 • Pastor Luke Uran
Three people, three radical acts. One person is asked to forgive radically. If he does, it will set the second person radically free from prescribed punishment. In making this request, the third person shows radical love — placing the need for two Christian brothers to reconcile higher than his own desire for comfort. Jesus calls us to live radically different lives from what our world expects. What does that look like? Listen to sermon to dig deeper into this challenge.
Part 11: Confrontation
1 Samuel 24:1-22 • August 18, 2019 • Pastor Luke Uran
The king's bathroom break could have become an assassination, changing Israel’s history. Instead, the future king remained faithful, humble and loyal. How does this story speak to us amid challenges today? In God’s upside-down kingdom, how should we confront power and opportunity?
Part 12: Shake It Off
Hebrews 12:1–3 • August 25, 2019 • Pastor Luke Uran
We’ve all heard it before: Life is a marathon, not a sprint. The author of Hebrews tells us that to be the best possible marathon runner, we need to cast off any burden weighing us down, and any sin entangling our feet. But how? Doesn’t Jesus understand what we’re up against? As a matter of fact, he does.
Part 13: Fear is a Liar
1 Kings 19:1–18 • September 1, 2019 • Clayton Ganziano
Elijah was coming off his biggest victory. Now an evil leader wanted him dead. The great prophet's response: “I’ve had enough, Lord. Just kill me.” Fear wears on us. It can even make us wonder if God is really with us, despite his track record in our lives. But when he forces us to stop and listen, we discover we aren't nearly as alone as we thought.
