Just a Fairy Tale?
The Three Little Pigs
November 8, 2020 • Pastor Tyler Gramling
What is excellence? What amount of effort is enough? Are you just barely sliding by in this life, or are you doing your utmost to be the best you can be in everything you do? So many people will try to tell you that it’s okay to do the bare minimum, which is actually the opposite of excellence. Pastor Tyler Gramling gives a passionate teaching on what excellence actually is, and ultimately why excellence matters!
The Headless Horseman
November 1, 2020 • Pastor Troy Gramling
Being human, it’s a fact of life that we will not live forever. At some point, sooner or later, this life will end for each of us. The question remains—how do we live, faced with the reality of death? How does this impact the way we live our lives? We can’t deny death, and no amount of wealth can save us from death. Pastor Troy Gramling shares how we can break beyond the fear of death into a full, fulfilled life lived to our greatest potential!
Little Red Riding Hood
October 25, 2020 • Pastor Troy Gramling
We have all heard the childhood fairytale “Little Red Riding Hood”, the story of a girl who goes to visit her grandma and instead finds a wolf impersonating her grandma. She expects to see her sweet grandmother, but upon arrival actually is deceived by this manipulative wolf. Life can be a lot like this crazy fairytale. We have hopes, dreams, goals—but much like the wolf, there’s an Enemy who seeks to steal your future and leave you hopeless and destitute. Pastor Troy Gramling shares the secrets to successfully defeating the enemy of lies, and instead pointing you to the way of Jesus—the One who will bring you to a future filled with abundance, peace, strength, direction, and true courage!
Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs
October 11, 2020 • Pastor Troy Gramling
When Snow White stumbled upon the cottage in the forest, not only did she come upon a house full of people, she gained friends—a community. Human beings need a sense of community, togetherness, for their own happiness, mental health, and believe it or not, spiritual health. God commands us in the Bible to never stop meeting together as believers, to be the church in the sense of the word meaning a community of people! That’s powerful! Pastor Troy Gramling shares a word on the power of community, and why God made us for community in this life.
Hansel & Gretel
October 4, 2020 • Pastor Troy Gramling
Have you ever heard the fairytale about Hansel & Gretel? It’s a story about greed and straying, and then the journey home. There’s a similar parable in the Bible dealing with much the same issue—the story of the prodigal son. Both talk about temptation, sin, but the incredible journey back home and the redemption it brings. What about when we stray in our own lives? Maybe you’ve done some things that you aren’t proud of, maybe even you feel like you have ruined your life? Does God offer the same forgiveness and redemption for you?
