Compassion For The Hurting
December 30, 2018 • Pastor Brian Vasil
There are those who are hurting all around us. The grocery bagger at the corner store... the lonely wife who’s husband has deployed to the war... even your own spouse sitting next to you at dinner. How do we help those people around us? Can we be the light in the darkness for them? You CAN! Pastor Brian Vasil shares four Biblical truths to help those who are hurting starting today!

We have all sinned... we are all guilty... and the penalty for this is ultimately death. Yet God showed compassion on us by sending a gift for us in that first Christmas several thousand years ago. God showed us LOVE, not judgment. And that truly is the best Christmas gift we can receive this Christmas!
Compassion For Our World
December 23, 2018 • Pastor Tyler Gramling
Now more than ever, our world needs compassion. During the Christmas season, it’s easy to be compassionate, isn’t it? You donate to the toy drive, you give money to the local charity... but what about compassion as a lifestyle? What are the keys to staying compassionate year- round... not just at Christmas time?
Our Christmas Mission
December 16, 2018 • Pastor Troy Gramling
It’s Christmas time again, filled with the holiday hustle and bustle, and busyness that can be all- consuming. Jesus is the reason for this Christmas season, but what does that truly mean? What is it that you really expect Christmas to bring to you this year?
The Red Sleigh of Compassion
December 2, 2018 • Pastor Troy Gramling
Santa makes his list, checks it twice, he knows who has been naughty or nice and so only If you’re good enough, you’ll get gifts at Christmas. He doesn’t give out of compassion, but rather based on works. But what about the first Christmas? What—or better yet WHO—was the gift given to humanity? Can you earn this gift?
The Gift of Family Forgiveness
November 25, 2018 • Pastor Brian Vasil
We’ve all gotten into fights with our families. Whether it be a short, petty fight, or a huge, decades-long fight, we’ve all been there. You may be holding onto something so old you can’t even remember why you’re mad anymore... but you’re still holding onto that anger or hurt. This Christmas, choose the compassion of FORGIVENESS. Don’t let that fighting take the joy out of celebrating the birth of Christ this Christmas!
The Red Recliner of Christmas
November 18, 2018 • Pastor Troy Gramling
Compassion is seeing the pain in others around you, and then going on to do something about it. The problem is, especially during Christmas time, that we are just too tired to do anything for others. We are weary and collapse into that “recliner”, numbing ourselves to our stress and the world around us by tuning in to the TV or social media, and tuning out of the world. But in order to change the world, we have to get OUT of that recliner. The question is, how do we get out of that recliner this Christmas?
