What Makes Us Happy?

May 23, 2021 • Pastor Troy Gramling

What makes you happy? For all of us, it can be different things that put a smile on our faces—a vacation, a favorite restaurant, puppies, or maybe it’s just being in the presence of the people you love. Those things might bring us momentary happiness... but what brings true, deep down joy? What—or maybe it’s WHO brings peace and hope that outlasts these momentary pleasures?

Clown Shoes

May 16, 2021 • Pastor Troy Gramling

Living like Jesus—those are some big shoes to fill, there’s no denying that. Maybe so big, it seems almost impossible to live the kind of life that glorifies God. God gives us the keys and assures us that we can indeed live life following in the footsteps of Jesus. So what now? We want to live in this world, but be the light and not fall into worldly ways. Pastor Troy Gramling shares how to choose TODAY to serve the Lord and see your life forever changed!

Big Shoes to Fill

May 9, 2021 • Pastor Troy Gramling

Leaving a legacy behind in this life... what does this look like? We are often told to not only live our lives for ourselves, but rather to leave an impact that reaches far beyond the years we walk this earth. This is what Jesus did. He lived His life entirely for others, and left an eternal impact on lives for centuries beyond his earthly years. Pastor Troy Gramling shares the Biblical command to leaving an impact in this life, and the fulfillment that comes from living this out!

What Do You Expect?

May 2, 2021 • Pastor James L. Davis

We talk about faith constantly in Christian lingo—mainly due to the fact that God stresses the detrimental importance of faith throughout the entire Bible. So what is faith exactly? How do we develop a faith-filled life, so that we can live a life full of eager expectancy?

The Many Faces of Clowns

April 18, 2021 • Pastor Troy Gramling

We are all born naked—also in the sense that we don’t hide who we are or what we are from the world. We know no shame, embarrassment, anger, hate, fear, or any other emotion which might drive us to put on “masks” in life to protect us from the world. So as you’ve grown, you’ve found yourself wearing these masks—but God didn’t intent for us to live a life filled with hiding. Where do you go from here? God promises redemption and newness in Him, so how do you take off these masks to live the life that God has planned for you?
