Love Does Not Insist on its Own Way

1 Corinthians 13:5

January 13, 2024 • Wes Van Fleet • 1 Corinthians 13:5

As Paul continues his description of what love is and is not, he comes to this little phrase, "love does not insist on its own way." In a world where we are constantly making decisions, how do we live in a way that considers more significant than ourselves?

Some verses are hard to understand.

In this message we will take a deep dive into two different ways to interpret these verses and consider how we might apply what we learn to the service.

Can Complementarianism be Beautiful?

March 9, 2024 • Tim Cain • Ephesians 5:21–33, 1 Corinthians 14

If they were a part of God’s good plan then how is it fair that husbands get the role of headship while wives are called to submit? These are just a few of the questions we will consider as we try and discern the roles that God has called both men and women to play in the home.
