Thriving in This Broken World

Thriving with Instruction

March 19, 2023 • Kirk Bentley • 1 Thessalonians 5:12–22

A registered letter from the Apostle Paul arrived with encouragement for the church family at Thessalonica. The letter addresses how to honor church leaders and then how the entire church is to live in step with the Holy Spirit.  

Live in the Light

March 12, 2023 • Jason Williams • 1 Thessalonians 5:1–11

Christians are not to live with fear, stress, and anxiety regarding the judgment which is coming into the world against sin. We are children of the light and children of the day. Let us reject sin (darkness) and live as beacons of the light in this broken world.

Your One Job

February 26, 2023 • Keith Bradford • 1 Thessalonians 4:9–12

Jesus has given us one job as His followers - to love more.

Holiness and Honor

February 19, 2023 • Jason Williams • 1 Thessalonians 4:1–8

God is serious about wanting us (his people) to learn, grow and mature in our faith. He wants us to separate from sin and be set apart for his good plans. Honoring God with our sexuality is a significant step in our sanctification.

Words of Affirmation

February 5, 2023 • Jason Williams • 1 Thessalonians 2:13–20

One of the Five Love Languages is Words of Affirmation. Giving and Receiving Words that compliment and build up. The Living Word (Jesus) and the Written Word (the Bible) have Words of Affirmation that we need to hear.

Someone In Your Corner

January 29, 2023

Like a prize-winning boxer, Christ-followers are going to need someone “in our corner.” Christians need the Savior, and they need other believers who will care for them and encourage them in the fight.  


January 22, 2023 • Jason Williams • 1 Thessalonians 1:2–10

The early Christians in the city of Thessalonica had a powerful reputation based on God’s mighty work in their lives. In the same way, we are meant to have a powerful reputation as the Holy Spirit continues his work in us and through us. 

The Planted Seed

January 15, 2023 • Jason Williams • 1 Thessalonians 1:1–4, Acts 17:1–10

The Gospel Seed is being planted around the world. When the Good News is shared… there will be a Harvest! The proof is found in the church thriving in hostile environments around the globe. The church is meant to Thrive!
