Idols Among Us

1 Corinthians 8-10

A Prayer for Wisdom

July 30, 2023 • Scot Pollok • 1 Corinthians 10:14–33, 1 Corinthians 11:1

The conclusion of Paul's directives regarding idols gifts us with ample grace along the complex path of decision making with wisdom. 

History Need Not Repeat Itself

July 23, 2023 • Dan Challapalli • 1 Corinthians 9:24–27, 1 Corinthians 10:1–14

So far, Paul has zeroed in on the core of the Gospel: Jesus laying his life down for others. This Sunday, Paul turns the gospel-focus from others to self. Using the story of the Exodus, Paul warns Christians about the dangers of toying with idolatry.

Sacrifice to Win

July 16, 2023 • Charlie Maier, Kelcy Maier • 1 Corinthians 9:15–27

We're called to love your neighbor as yourself. Sometimes it's easier said than done - in fact, it involves sacrifice at times. As we continue in our series, Idols Among Us, Paul teaches us how we can be all things to all people and that we can sacrifice to win more for the Kingdom.

Enduring All Things

July 2, 2023 • Rob Garey • 1 Corinthians 9:1–7

As we continue our new series in 1 Corinthians, Idols Among Us, Paul tells the story of how he planted the church in Corinth, and that even our glorious freedoms in Christ are worth sacrificing for our brothers and sisters to receive the Gospel and mature in love. Discover freedom from the idolatry of money by embracing the call to joyful sacrifice and generosity.

Hand-made Heart-Made

July 2, 2023 • Scot Pollok • 1 Corinthians 8

The longings of our heart have expressions, outcomes and consequences that are often unintended - like in the creation of idols. But this is not the only thing Paul has to say in this new section of his letter to the church at Corinth. Come join us as we begin a new series that will engage our idol-factory hearts further into life-changing truths about community, freedom and more.
