Where Breakthrough Begins

Easter Weekend 2017

April 16, 2017 • Ronnie Rothe

Main Point: "Breakthrough begins with YOU." Key Verse: "When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, 'Do you want to get well?' Then Jesus said to him, 'Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.'" – John 5:6, 8 (NIV) Challenge Question: "Do you need a breakthrough in your life?" Sermon Description: We all have areas in our lives where it feels like we’re just hitting brick wall after brick wall. Maybe it’s financial stress, strife in a relationship, obstacles with our physical health, or just a hopeless situation that we find ourselves in. No matter what we do, we can't seem to break through the walls in front us. But on Easter, as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, we remember that hope is available today. Let's discover Where Breakthrough Begins.

Constructive Communication

Choose A Better Family • August 18, 2019 • Jimmy George

INTRODUCTION: Choosing a better family with the ones you already have is attainable, but it requires that you make intentional choices. We’ve discussed three ways to engage in healthier families: proactive protection, selfless submission, and radical reconciliation. In the final week of this series, we learn that better words lead to better families. MAIN POINT: If you want your family to be better, it starts with the rhythms you choose and the words you use. KEY VERSE: “Do not let any unwholesome language come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” – Ephesians 4:29 CHALLENGE QUESTION: Has my language been life giving or life taking? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Proverbs 18:21

Radical Reconciliation

Choose A Better Family • August 11, 2019 • John Schluchter

INTRODUCTION: Choosing a better family with the ones you already have is attainable, but it requires that you make intentional choices. Every family experiences conflict but not every family chooses to reconcile with one another. What would it look like if you made a commitment to radically reconcile with your family today? MAIN POINT: Do whatever it takes to talk not walk TODAY. KEY VERSE: “Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry and do not give the devil a foothold.” – Ephesians 4:26b-27 CHALLENGE QUESTION: With whom do you need to "talk not walk" today? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Matthew 5:23-24, Ephesians 4:26-27, Colossians 1:21-22

Selfless Submission

Choose A Better Family • August 4, 2019 • Nick Petrick

INTRODUCTION: We all have families that look different from one another due to changing circumstances and challenges. If we were all honest, we probably wish that our family was better in some ways. We at Relevant want to help each other choose a better family with the ones that we already have by proactively protecting our family and selflessly submitting to one another like Jesus did. MAIN POINT: We choose a better family when we put others first! KEY VERSE: “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” – John 13:15 CHALLENGE QUESTION: What are you doing today to leverage all that you are and all that you have for the benefit of those in your family? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Ephesians 5:21-22, John 13:1-17, Mark 10:45
