The Kingdom Life
Kingdom Life: Part Fourteen • August 6, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe Living in God's Kingdom can be difficult at times but if we aren't careful we can minimize all of salvation into a simple one-time decision. However, Jesus didn't only save us from something but for something - to passionately live out this active Spirit-filled Kingdom Life.
Deception and Detection
Kingdom Life Part Thirteen • July 30, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe Are false prophets still a real thing? How do you discern or determine if someone is true and authentic to God's teaching or is coming in false clothing? This week, Pastor Daniel offers insight and four questions we must ask before submitting to a spiritual leader.
The Relentless Invitation
Kingdom Life: Part Twelve • July 23, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe The Golden Rule may be easy to understand in theory, but it can be incredibly challenging to read and obey. Yet, following this rule will always lead us toward an unhurried humility into the Kingdom of God.
Generous Living: Give It Away
Kingdom Life: Part Ten • July 9, 2017 • Chris Steenmeyer
Pastor Chris Steenmeyer This week we are joined again by our Family Life Pastor, Chris Steenmeyer, as we jump back into our series through the Sermon on the Mount. Chris challenges us that living a life of generosity does not depend on how much or frequently we are able to give of our time or resources, but it is about the spirit of generosity that flows from us.
The Lord's Prayer
Kingdom Life: Part Nine • June 25, 2017 • Lance Witt
Guest Speaker Lance Witt This week we are joined by author, speaker, and leadership coach Lance Witt. Through Lance’s sermon, we are reminded that prayer is an invitation to converse and encounter the living God and we have Jesus as the powerful example.
Love Without Limits
Kingdom Life: Part Seven • June 11, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe This week we look at Jesus’ commandment through the Sermon on the Mount to love our enemies. Probably no admonition of Jesus has been more difficult to follow than this commandment and how it challenges our day-to-day living.
Redemption Out Of Brokenness
Kingdom Life: Part Six • June 4, 2017 • Chris Steenmeyer
Pastor Chris Steenmeyer Whether we’ve experienced it personally or know someone who has walked through it, divorce is part of our lives and our culture. But what is God’s view of marriage and divorce? How does Jesus address this divisive issue and what steps toward redemption can we take?
Purity in an Age of Sensuality
Kingdom Life: Part Five • May 21, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe Today we look at just a few verses from Matthew 5, verses that are dynamite because of their directness, challenge and metaphor. Whether you’re single, in a relationship, or have been married for many years, this passage is a challenge to raise the banner of morality and increase our fidelity and commitment.
A Harvest of Righteousness
Kingdom Life: Part Four • May 14, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount challenges the way we relate to those around us. One of the most crucial of all life skills that we must learn is the ability to reach for reconciliation in a divided or strained relationship. Jesus challenges us not to run away or ignore conflict but instead to press into it with grace, humility, and forgiveness.
Kingdom Life: Part Three • May 7, 2017 • Jerry Wilson
Pastor Jerry Wilson This week we look at a rather perplexing and possibly hopeless outcome if we view it only through our own lens as opposed to from God’s perspective. Jesus proclaims the difference between the law of the prophets and the Kingdom of God. It is through this Kingdom that we are redeemed and set free.
Messages from the Mountain
Kingdom Life: Part One • April 23, 2017 • Daniel Rolfe
Pastor Daniel Rolfe This week we kick off a 16-week series through the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5, 6, & 7. The sermon gained its name from Jesus’ radical message on the mountain about how to live the Christian life and as we walk through this we will see how radical Jesus is calling us to live today.
