Throne to Table
Part 17 – Ask-cess: Prayers That Open the Door to The Father’s House
November 24, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
When you pray, do you realize that you have access to the throne room of Heaven? Our prayers are not just some sort of ritual or script that we walk through in order to check off an item on our Christian to-do list. If we come to understand the truth about where we stand with God and the privileges of our relationship with Him, it will change how we pray.
Part 16 - I've Got the Joy
November 17, 2019 • Pastor Chris Kaskel
At one point or another every has experienced a moment of pure joy. Something good, surprising, or exciting happens and we are overcome with emotion. What if we could live a life that is full of joy? If you follow Jesus, living with abundant joy is actually the way it's supposed to be!
Part 15 - The Mentoring Spirit of God
November 10, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
Where does truth come from? God has given us His Word and Jesus said we can build our life upon it. Without the mentoring of the Holy Spirit, the Bible would simply be words on a page. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, however, The Word comes alive and breathes the truth into our heart.
Part 14 - The Missionary Spirit of God
November 3, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
Jesus told His disciples that it was good for Him to leave because it meant God would send His Holy Spirit. Without Jesus, the Gospel message needed a force behind it to keep it going. The same Spirit that lived in Jesus and drove Him to do the will of God was poured out on His Church and now lives in us!
Part 13 - The Downside of Discipleship
October 27, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
Living as followers of Jesus does not mean we will not suffer persecution and hard times. In fact, in the New Testament, we are told to expect it. The good news, however, is that we serve a God who is always for us and will strengthen us in the midst of the storm.
Part 12 - Cultivating Friendship
October 13, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
We were made for friendships. From the beginning of time, God's design for humanity was us to be in relationship with one another. Only one time during creation did God declare that something was "not good", and that was for man to be alone.
Part 11 - The Vine and The Vinedresser #2
September 1, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
To illustrate the connection between God and humanity, Jesus used the example of a vine and its branches. If we as believers are the branches connected to God, the life-giving vine, how do we grow healthy and strong?
Part 10 - The Vine and The Vinedresser #1
August 18, 2019 • Pastor Chris Kaskel
How does one become a better person? Change and growth can be hard. It can sometimes seem like trying walk up the down escalator. Jesus shows us, however, that change and growth are possible as long as we stay connected to Him!
Part 8 - Living With The Holy Spirit
August 4, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
Jesus promised His disciples that when He left them He would send The Holy Spirit. His role in our lives is to be our helper, encourager, advocate, and friend. Because of the Holy Spirit, we stay connected to God everywhere we go!
Part 6 - The Way Into the Relationship
April 14, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
In one of His last conversations with the disciples, one thing is very clear. They still could not wrap their head around who Jesus really was. So when Jesus tells them He will die, return for them, and that they knew the way, they were very confused. It's in this moment that Jesus reveals to them that when they have seen Jesus, they have seen the Father. In order to get to God, they must believe in Jesus and follow after Him.
Part 4 - A Whole New Way of Living
March 31, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
As Jesus tells His disciples that He is about to enter into His glory, He gives his disciples a simple, but powerful, instruction on how they are to carry on. Love others as I have loved you. In doing so, they would show the world they truly were Jesus' disciples.
Part 3 - The Open Table of the Lord
March 24, 2019 • Lead Pastor David Sulcer
One of the most iconic scenes in the Bible is the Last Supper. Jesus is seated with His disciples in the upper room and this is where he uses the breaking of bread and drinking of wine to show what was about to happen. Many times, however, we don't consider the fact that Judas is present for this moment. Despite having already betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, he was still invited and given a seat among the disciples.
