2018 Winter & Spring

Most weekends, we share live teaching across all five Woodmen campuses. From time to time, each campus hosts independent weekends with intentional teaching for their specific congregation. You’ll find sermons from these independent weekends, along with messages from guest teachers, here.

Fruit & Intimacy, John 15:1-8

Memorial Day Weekend • May 27, 2018 • Peep Saar

We cannot force fruitfulness out of our own efforts. All we can do is create an healthy environment where the miracle of life and growth can happen. Living things grow, multiply & bear fruit. Bearing fruit is a requirement for disciples of Jesus. Fruit is born out of an environment of intimacy. 1. Intimacy with God (John 15:5) 2. Intimacy with the family of God (John 13:35) 3. Intimacy with lost people (John 17:15-18) SONGS: All The Earth #7035179 by A Rozier, J Ingram, J Smith, and M Andrews 2014 © Word Music, LLC Faithful To The End #7054172 by B Johnson, H McClure, J Taylor, and P McClure 2015 © Bethel Music Publishing O Praise The Name (Anástasis) #7037787 by B Hastings, D Ussher, and M Sampson 2015 © Hillsong Music Publishing It Is Well [Bethel] #7021972 by H G Spafford, K DiMarco, and P P Bliss 2013 © Bethel Music No Other Name #7019979 by J Houston and J Myrin 2014 © Hillsong Music Publishing

The Easter Story in the Old Testament, Genesis 22 & 24

Heights Campus • March 18, 2018 • Kurt Birky

God’s redemptive plan for mankind culminated with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. However, the plan itself was laid out centuries earlier. To get a new perspective of the Easter story, we will be looking at four Old Testament characters; Abraham, Isaac, Eliezer and Rebekah and how they point to an even greater story.

Something Greater, 1 Kings 19:19-21 / 2 Kings 2:8-14

Rockrimmon Campus • February 11, 2018 • Matt Ferrell

When God calls us to follow Him, he is calling us to something greater than we could ever ask or imagine. Too often, however, we are satisfied by following the call of our own selfish heart. In the call of Elisha we see how God’s call leads to something greater, even though at first it seems to be exactly the opposite. Elisha was a wealthy man, but to be faithful to God’s call he gave up his wealth. Elisha was a man of authority, but he gave up his authority to serve Elijah for 18 years. As Elisha found following the call of God was greater than he could have imagined, every one of us must be faithful to follow the specific call God has given us. 1. The journey to something greater (1 Kings 19:19-21) a. Start with an unexpected party (vs. 19-20) b. Marked by complete surrender and humble service (v. 21) c.

Finding Confidence in God's Call, Judges 6:11-7:18

Heights Campus • February 4, 2018 • Kirby Neely

Gideon is an unlikely Hero in God’s story- so unlikely that it takes a process for him to gain confidence in himself and God’s calling. God’s strength with Gideon is the secret sauce that leads to Gideon’s success as a leader. God is calling each of us to different things- what will be necessary for you to gain confidence that his strength in you will be enough to accomplish what he has asked you to do? 1. God corrected Gideon’s misunderstandings: (6:11-13) 2. God assured Gideon that he has what it takes. (6:14-16) 3. God helped Gideon Overcome the Fear of Others Approval (6:17-35) 4.

Consider Others, Philippians 2:1-11
