Under Pressure • November 24, 2019 • Tom Louis
God has created us to live in union with Him, yet most of us want to experience greater closeness with God than we do. Living out God’s provisions for our peace and rest are challenging, yet when all of the facets of our being are united & aligned, it is quite possible. Today, we’ll witness how God draws us together towards wholeness & fullness. Let us enter this season of Thanksgiving with lives overflowing with His goodness & gratitude!

Under Pressure • November 17, 2019 • Randy Hageman
Everyone gets sad or experiences grief at one time or another, but they usually go away within a few days. Depression, however, is something more, and untreated, it can lead to serious health issues. Some Christians believe that they shouldn’t suffer from depression if they are truly saved. Others believe using medications shows spiritual weakness. But, are these accurate or even faithful to Scripture? Today we’ll explore this important topic that affects everyone, either directly or indirectly through people we know and love.
Part 4: The Need for Margin
Under Pressure • November 10, 2019 • Randy Hageman
There are lots of causes of stress and anxiety, and while we can affect some of those causes, there are many we have little or no control over. But that doesn’t mean we are left stranded to wallow in our stress and anxiety. In our busy, busy world today, sometimes one of the most effective ways to deal with stresses and anxieties we can’t control is to provide some margin, some space, in our lives, as we’ll see in today’s message.
Part 3: What’s Behind Our Anxiety?
Under Pressure • November 3, 2019 • Randy Hageman
Anxiety can feel suffocating, overwhelming, or at the least annoying and disturbing. Yet, anxiety is an emotion that is a symptom of something else. We can treat the symptoms, but until we get at the sources of our anxiety, we remain in an unending cycle. What’s behind our anxiety? Today we’ll explore what are some of the things that often cause us to feel this, and what can we do about these causes.
Part 2: The Way of Peace
Under Pressure • October 27, 2019 • Randy Hageman
Unhealthy anxiety and stress agitate us, keep us nervous and unsettled, and often affect us physically. Jesus understood this, and so did the Apostle Paul. In fact, in Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi, written while he was in prison, he encouraged them to not be anxious! How could he do that, and how can we do that? Today we’ll explore what Paul taught, understanding that he was living what he taught!

What are we facing today? What’s causing stress and anxiety? Are times really different, or are we just less prepared to deal with all that’s going on? The Good News is that we have a God who wants to lead us through the things that are pressing in on us. He promises He will never leave us nor forsake us. He says He will lead the way so we can overcome the weight of stress and anxiety bearing down on us.
