In the hustle and frenzy leading up to Christmas, it’s so important that we don’t miss the Thanksgiving season! What a beautiful time of year AND a beautiful opportunity to simply reflect on how good God is... through all of life!
“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… many wonders and miraculous signs were done… All the believers were together and had everything in common. they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts. Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” — Acts 2:42-47
It’s in this time of year that tradition and sentiment run high. And in many ways, we enjoy reflecting and celebrating our main-stays of faith: Hope, Love, Peace and Joy. All of these, in their truest and deepest forms are only accessible because of the faithful commitment Jesus fulfilled from His coming to earth through His departure back to Heaven. Explore with us, over these next four weeks, and rekindle your passionate love for Jesus as we acknowledge Him as the only Reason for the Season!
A focus on giving our heart, soul, mind and strength for the value and purpose of the Kingdom- worshipping Him holistically!
The “selfie” is the new norm in our media-crazed world! As people of God’s Kingdom, our passion and drive should revolve around being Christ-centered, not self-centered! This Sunday, we’ll walk through Philippians 2, looking at how to shift from “self” to “selfless”.
We’ll take a look at Matthew 20. How great is our God. How great is His call to us. How great is our opportunity to know Him. How great is it when we answer His call. And how great is His goodness and our reward!
Join me as we explore who Jesus is to us- especially in the midst of the times we feel we need Him most! His relationship with John the baptizer gives us great insight in to the heart of God and His deeper plan for our lives!
Pastor Frankie will walk you through Scripture from the book of Matthew. Jesus cares about our body, mind and soul! Weariness and heaviness must be released and laid down in order to find rest... and rest will be found in Him!
This week, as we explore Micah chapter 6:1-8, we’ll discover practical truths about our tendency as humans to wander from God. Why is it that we sometimes end up feeling far away from Him? When we discover that we seem to have lost intimacy with Him, what can we do about it?
Come and let’s look together at Matthew 18! Specifically, we will look at Jesus’ outlook at significance and greatness!
Power, dominance, intellect, position, authority; these are just a few adult-like traits of “greatness” and “power” that many strive for and desire, both in life and sometimes in faith. However, the adult in the room should always be Jesus! We are called to be His children!
Come and let’s look together at Matthew 13! We will narrow our focus on three different, but linked parables.
Branching off of last week... we know that God has a plan for us all... and it’s an extraordinary one! Everything begins with a seed. What is sown in your life today? A seed of strength, health, vision and faith? Or seeds of weeds...discouragement, doubt, slander, fear and the like?
We’re very aware that Jesus is no ordinary person. Everything about Him, from His place in creation, His birth in to this human world and His rising from death, is nothing short of extraordinary!
