In Matthew 11, we see the heart of Christ when He says, “Come unto me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." These words reflect His heart for sinners, for those who are broken, those needing healing, and even His heart for the hypocritical Pharisees. Some would heed that call, but many would reject it. That’s still true today. We’re excited to begin a new sermon series where our chapel speakers will be preaching through the life of Jesus. And this week, Pastor Ed starts us off by examining this great call of Christ in the gospels and how it isn’t an invitation to religion, dogma or denomination. It’s an invitation to Jesus Himself.

The Living Water Seeks a Thirsty Soul
May 11, 2022
The more we give over to sin, the further it will lead us away from the Lord. But in His mercy, God is willing to meet us in our place of need and save us from our self-destruction. We see this in the story of the Woman at the Well, whose passions and desires had led her into ruin. On an ordinary day in her life, she encountered Jesus, who helped her to see beyond her circumstances to her true need for Him. In this message, Pastor Nate Danser challenges us to allow the Lord to do that in our own lives as well.
He Must Increase, But I Must Decrease

When the people began flocking to Jesus to be baptized instead of John the Baptist, John uttered three statements which culminated with the declaration, “He must increase, and I must decrease.” Pastor Ed reveals how that statement must become a reality in our own lives and shows us what it takes for that to occur.
When Jesus Calls Your Name
April 13, 2022
When Jesus began His earthly ministry, He called a select few to follow Him as His disciples. Those Jewish men would have immediately known the significance behind that call. But our modern, western thinking often misses the meaning in discipleship. This is a true loss, because Jesus is still calling men and women today to be His disciples. So, what did it mean when Jesus chose someone to follow Him? How did this call impact their lives? How do the answers to those questions affect us who want to be His disciples today? Dustin Renz helps us understand the call to discipleship in this week’s message.
