Drop the Scorecard
April 5, 2020 • Pastor Chris Cassis
How do you deal with people whom you don't like? God teaches Jonah a valuable lesson through the illustration of a plant and a worm. We may think the message is for Jonah, but it is actually for the church today. Pastor Chris teaches that you can't love God and hate people. The same question God asked Jonah is relevant for today. Are you willing to drop the scorecard and show love?

Have you ever been hurt and disappointed because you expected grace, but received judgement? Jonah’s hypocrisy is revealed as he receives God’s grace but secretly desires justice for others. Pastor Chris teaches that God’s grace is not to be hoarded, but to be shared!

When you hit rock bottom, the only place to look is up. Jonah finds this to be true at the bottom of the ocean and inside a fish. Everyone's pit has the potential to become holy ground. Pastor Erik teaches that failure is a part of success and we need to learn to fail forward.
Peace In the Storm
March 8, 2020 • Pastor Duane Terpstra
It's easy to lose hope, embrace fear, and panic in the midst of a storm. In the story of Jonah we find sailors who are willing to sacrifice anything in order to find peace. In their final moments Jonah offers up his life in order to save theirs. Pastor Duane teaches how it is possible for us to receive peace in the middle of a storm.
