The Book of Acts: Part 3

Risky Business

June 27, 2021 • Chris Heller

We find Paul at a place where he is convinced he is to return to Jerusalem, much to the chagrin of those who are offering him council. He will have to decide between heeding the warnings of those wanting him to stay, or following the sense of call he has urging him to go. Have you ever made a decision that is outside the norm, or even against the flow? Have you ever decided to launch out into something others deemed reckless?

Under Fire

July 4, 2021 • Chris Heller

We voyage into the fire of adversity. The fire is raging, and it's going to be tempting to walk away, but we're voyagers . . . so in we go, EVEN IF we get burned. Have you ever launched into something for others that you truly believed in, only to find every move is met with adversity? Have you ever questioned why God wouldn't prevent the adversity you're facing from happening when you are clearly doing this for Him?

Awesome Faith

July 11, 2021 • Chris Heller

This week's sermon is on Tenacious Faith, the faith that "stays on the wall."  We will follow Paul (Acts 23) as he faces chains, slaps, threats and intimidation. Hope you're enjoying our series in Acts . . .Voyagers!

Blameless Faith

July 18, 2021 • Chris Heller

Have you ever been tempted to do something wrong in private?  How about being deceitful in order to finish a task under pressure, or maybe pondered ways to deceptively cheat the system? What about the times you’ve justified deceitfulness because of the way you have been mistreated? Paul is mocked, accused, slandered, and even cast away into isolation, despite being blameless before God.

Altar Faith

July 25, 2021 • Chris Heller

Let’s be honest, there's no one who doesn’t think they could use some growth in the area of patience.  Being tested in the area of patience is no fun, yet it is one of the most sought-after characteristics God longs to see in His children. Why? Patience demands sacrifice, and sacrifice demands trust. The ability to walk in faith as we wait on God demonstrates a God-fearing respect, surrender, and trust that He is good and He will provide. When we patiently wait, we honor and praise Him as we choose to rest in His timing, His plan, and His promises that He will provide.

Valiant Faith

August 1, 2021 • Chris Heller

The word valiant is seldom used in our day and age. It describes one who "possesses or shows courage or determination.” This Sunday, we will be reminded of one of the most valiant acts in all of scripture from the book of Esther as she stands before the king.  We will compare her boldness to that of Paul (Acts 26) as he stands before Agrippa.

Storm Faith

August 8, 2021 • Chris Heller

There is a type of faith that can trust and obey despite discouraging times, difficult circumstances, and peril on the horizon.  We will call it STORM FAITH. We will watch STORM FAITH in action in the lives of both Noah and Paul.  We will see the trust and obedience required to survive the mighty tempests that can come a voyager's way and find inspiration from their character as the thunder rolled.

Desperate Faith

August 15, 2021 • Jon Adams

Paul is shipwrecked on Malta, and his faith being put to the test through even more difficult and desperate circumstances. Through his trials, we will consider a new aspect of faith - DESPERATE FAITH, for times in our lives when we don't know where to turn.

Mission Faith

August 22, 2021 • Chris Heller

Paul was told by the Lord that he would preach the gospel to the Gentiles in Rome. He leaped out in faith as a voyager for God, determined to fulfill his mission, and this week we will watch him endeavor to do just that. He is ready, we know he’s willing, but will he be able? Join us this week as we conclude the Voyager Series with "Mission Faith"
