I Dare You

January 7, 2018 • Pastor Tyler Gramling

The new year is a great opportunity to look at our lives and rearrange—reprioritize. The saying often goes, “New year, new you!”. It’s a time to set goals, to dream big, and to make changes. What if you and I dared to be great in this new year? What if this was the year that we dared to surrender to Jesus and allow Him to be the center of our lives? Pastor Tyler Gramling dares each of us to be the best we can be so that we can walk in the freedom that Jesus Christ paid for!

Happy New Year 2018

December 31, 2017 • Pastor Buddy Cremeans

It’s the last days of the year, and many of us look to a new year with questions—what if this new year doesn’t bring about the change that want or need? What if the best days aren’t ahead, but are really already behind us? Anxiety is when your mind is saying one thing, but your heart is saying something else. God gives us the antidote to this anxiety and worry in our daily lives— and that’s His peace, which He tells us in the Bible “surpasses ALL understanding”. Guest Pastor Buddy Cremeans helps us ring in a new year with a special teaching about God’s plan for peace, even in the midst of life’s storms.

I Believe in Christmas

December 24, 2017 • Pastor Troy Gramling

Have you experienced brokenness? Maybe your marriage hasn’t turned out to be the sunshine and rainbows and constant happiness that you expected it to be. Maybe that dream job you’ve been chasing seems further away than ever. In the Christmas story, Mary and Joseph faced trials in their journey to the birth of Jesus—what seemed like the end was actually a sign of God’s faithfulness! Pastor Troy Gramling shares the message of Christmas and how the birth of Jesus means good news, great joy, for ALL people—including you!

Cleaning Up Life’s Messes

December 17, 2017 • Pastor Troy Gramling

Life is messy. It can be filled with pain, heartache, sickness... The fact is, no matter how hard we try to be “good” people, we can’t live a perfect, mess-free life. Pastor Troy Gramling takes a good look at the impact that Christmas—the birth of our Savior, Jesus—makes on cleaning up the messes in each of our lives.

A Christmas Road Trip: Are We There Yet

December 10, 2017 • Pastor Troy Gramling

Are we there yet?” You may have heard this phrase from one of your kids on a road trip— maybe even over and over again. Maybe they are so focused on the destination that they miss the whole world that is just outside of their car window. In our spiritual lives, we often find ourselves in the same situation. We get so focused on the destination of where we are headed —eternal life—that we miss the abundant life that God has placed right in front of us, right now. Pastor Troy Gramling shares a Christmas message on learning to enjoy the journey of life, each and every day!

Join Pastor Troy Gramling as he shares the plan God has for experiencing Christmas in a whole new way this year!

How to Get Your Christmas Kicks

November 26, 2017 • Pastor Brian Vasil

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and love, celebrating the birth of Jesus. But then we often get caught up in the details of Christmas—the gifts, the parties, the work, the money it costs, we become tired, irritable, the list goes on. So what happens when we lose our Christmas joy? How do we find that joy again, and learn to appreciate the true reason for the season this Christmas? Pastor Brian Vasil tackles a message that hits home for each one of us, helping us regain the joy once again, not just for this Christmas, but for every Christmas to come!

Christmas Nostalgia?

November 19, 2017 • Pastor Troy Gramling

When we think about Christmas, we often think about Christmas in the past, not necessarily in the present. Nostalgia kicks in, and all we remember is what we wanted our Christmas memories to be—and we evaluate our present Christmas based upon a Christmas that really never existed. The reality is that Christmas is all about the future, rather than the past. Pastor Troy Gramling shares a special message of hope and healing this Christmas season, and God’s amazing plan for a future filled with hope!
