Let's Gooooo!

Acts 1:1-11

September 26, 2021 • Pastor Rob

One of the greatest things we can experience is the sense that we are doing exactly what God wants us to do. When we know and live his will there is freedom, joy, and purpose even in the midst of difficulty. It’s equally one of the worst things when we aren’t doing what God wants us to do. When we don’t know his purpose we’re lost, vulnerable to false visions for our lives, and susceptible to being drowned by the world’s drama. The same thing is true for the church. We’re living through a time when there is much drama in the world and many false visions for the church. But in the book of Acts we are given the exact mission Jesus appoints us to do and how he’ll empower us to do it. And when we live this out, there’s clarity, freedom, and joy to face anything. Seaside Fam, it’s time for a mission alignment. Our text and sermon this morning begins it!

Christianity's Tipping Point

January 16, 2022 • Pastor Rob

The time had finally come. Though the first believers had remained in Jerusalem, meeting in the temple and demonstrating how Jesus was the Messiah, the existing Jewish leaders had had enough. So, they killed Stephen, Christianity’s first martyr. This pushed the believers out to begin sharing the good news outside of Jerusalem. It’s the tipping point for the Jesus movement! In this long section of verses there's much to consider. Enjoy!

A Vision for Church Leadership and Church Growth in 2022!

January 9, 2022 • Pastor Rob

Leadership is challenging. The early church leaders didn’t always do well with the challenges they faced, but our passage this morning is an example of a time when they did! Not only did they deal with a challenging situation well, but their leadership led to growth. So as we head into 2022, I give you this text as a kind of vision for your leadership and for our church. Happy New Year Seaside Fam!

Fear God, Not People

January 2, 2022 • John Corrigan

This week we will be jumping back into our series through the book of Acts, continuing through chapter 5. The Apostles are once again in trouble with the Temple officials, but with the help of an angel and a Pharisee (how surprising!) they are able to continue with their mission. We will see that we as followers of Jesus are priests in the new temple, we are lights in a dark world, and we point others to Jesus, the Savior!
