The story of Noah and the Ark is about so much more than just preserving a single family, along with the animals, through a devastating global flood. In it we get the first glimpses of God's redemptive plan of re-creation. The implications for the Christian are beyond measure.

An Excursus: For Our Good Always

November 27, 2016 • Pastor Tanner Sheahan

The fall had ruined creation but even in the text of the curse God had revealed a future hope. Centuries after that garden scene God made covenant with his people through the giving of the Law which was meant to be yet another reminder of need and revelation of future hope: One who would perfectly fulfill the law, one who is the Life to which the Law points.

Good News

God demonstrated a remarkable restraint just moments after Adam and Eve's plummet into sin. This rhythm would continue throughout Scripture... Man's persistent rebellion and God's consistent grace. Praise God for the "proto-evangelium" ("first gospel") in Gen. 3:15! What mercy, what grace, what love He has shown us, and continues to show us! Amen.

Sin and Death

November 13, 2016 • Pastor Patrick Bowler

Our story takes a drastic turn in Genesis 3 with the origin of sin and death. What have we done? Lord Jesus, be merciful.

Man and Woman

November 6, 2016 • Patrick Bowler

In Genesis 1 & 2, we discover God's design for man and woman. This directly addresses timeless questions related to marriage, sexuality and gender.

Work and Rest

October 30, 2016 • Pastor Patrick Bowler

In Genesis 1 and 2, God demonstrates a rhythm of both work and rest. As a culture, we may have both wrong. Jesus models for us a different way.

When it comes to the origin of the cosmos, what can we know and how can we know it? Are science and faith enemies or allies? How are we to view the six days of creation as recorded in Genesis 1? These are some of the questions we will face as we seek to discover God's intended purpose through the book of Genesis.

One God

October 9, 2016 • Pastor Patrick Bowler

"The book of Genesis confronted the pagan polytheism of ancient Egypt with a resounding, "One God." Today the book of Genesis likewise confronts the pagan philosophical naturalism of the West with a resounding, "God created." What does the book of Genesis have to say concerning your story, not just with regards to your origin, but with regards to where you are going?"
