Life With Money

Life in Our Relationships

November 6, 2022 • Nate Hilgenkamp • 1 Peter 4:7–11

Have you ever felt like it would be easier for you to live a more isolated life? In this message, we talk about how isolation may feel easier, but it isn’t better. We were made for deep relationships and the Bible shows us how to have them! 1) Meaningful relationships come from loving one another deeply 2) Meaningful relationships come from offering hospitality joyfully 3) Meaningful relationships come from serving one another faithfully 

The Good Work

October 30, 2022 • Dale Wallace • Colossians 3:22—4:1, Genesis 1—3

So many thoughts come to mind as we think about work. The solution isn’t a new job or more money, it is a biblical perspective on work. 1) How should we work? Obediently with a sincere heart. 2) Who do we work for? For the Lord. 3) Why do we work? For the future reward.

As we continue our series, The Good Life, JP teaches us about the gifts we’ve been given by God—our time, talents, and treasures—and how we can best steward them for His glory, the good of others, and our own good. 1) The Good Life starts using the gifts we've been given 2) Good stewardship of gifts is rewarded 3) Misunderstanding the goodness of God has grave consequences

Life in Our Minds

October 16, 2022 • Nate Hilgenkamp • Psalm 139

Our thoughts are tremendously powerful. The way we think largely determines the way we live.
