IN•FIN•8 Week 8
The Story of Jesus • August 27, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
All the best stories have it. The right setting. The climactic action. The memorable characters. And the greatest story forever told is no exception. This Sunday, we close out our IN•FIN•8 series, Pastor Chris leads us through scripture – from Genesis to the Gospels to the book of Revelation – using worship and preaching, to connect the dots of a plot weaved together from the dawn of time. A story centered around one perfect character and one climactic event – the death and resurrection of Jesus.
IN•FIN•8 Week 7
The Story of Paul • August 20, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
In attempting to serve God, it is possible to become blinded by our own ambition. We step out in our own power, our own strength, and our own will. We think we know best instead of consulting God to help us make choices or decisions. We work harder and find ourselves praying less. In Part 7 of our series IN•FIN•8 Pastor Chris teaches the story of Saul and what happens when we allow our own aspirations to blind us.
IN•FIN•8 Week 5
The Story of Jonah • August 6, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
We all want to know what God wants us to do with our lives. We want Him to clarify our calling. Where do we go? How do we do it? But our calling is much more than just a set of directions. And it rarely caters to our conveniences and comfort. In part 5 of our series IN•FIN•8, we look at the story of Jonah to help us understand our calling, how to respond to it, and the ultimate purpose of what God has called us all to do.
IN•FIN•8 Week 4
The Story of Esther • July 30, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
For Such a Time as This It is easy to doubt in God when our circumstances look grim. Our natural response is to complain about our situation instead of working toward a solution. We all want immediate results and get upset when God seems to be taking His time in answering our prayers. In part 4 of our series IN•FIN•8 , Pastor Chris uses the story of Esther to teach the sacrifice it takes and the patient endurance we need in order for God to deliver the results we desire.
IN•FIN•8 Week 3
The Story of Elijah • July 23, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
God did not bring us into existence so that He could only reign over certain areas of our lives. God did not send Jesus to rescue a sinful, broken world so that He could just be one of our options. So why do we treat Him that way? Why, as Christians, do we want God to reign over our spiritual lives, but then often choose to follow other options when it comes to our job, our relationships, or our finances? In part 3 of our series IN•FIN•8, Pastor Chris teaches through the story of Elijah on Mount Carmel, the problem with keeping our options open.
IN•FIN•8 Week 2
The Story of David • July 16, 2017 • Pastor Chris Cassis
Conquering Our Giants It is easy to shy away or hide from big problems. But what do we do when that problem continues to taunt us in our face. We can’t ignore or run away from our problems forever, they will never go away. In week 2 of our series IN•FIN•8 we will see that David is willing to face the challenge whatever the size. We will learn what happens when we run from our problems and the reward from facing them head on.
IN•FIN•8 Week 1
