Passage: Luke 2:8-14       Series Christmas in 4 Words
  Description: This Sunday we will focus on the message of the angel to the shepherds on the night that Jesus was born. The angel proclaims in Luke 2:14, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." The birth of Jesus ushered in an opportunity for peace between God and us. What we will discover is that our sin puts enmity between the two of us, and yet, when Jesus died for our sins, the veil in the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom, signifying that we have an opportunity of peace with God. This Sunday we will unpack why Jesus really is the "Prince of Peace."

Passage: Luke 2:8-20       Series Christmas in 4 Words
  Description: This Sunday we will focus on the message of the angels to the shepherds out in the field. The angel announced to the shepherds in Luke 2:10, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people." It seems that so many times, we approach our life with Christ in despair and gloom. Why is it that we sometimes look beaten down by life? This Sunday we will discuss how the birth of Jesus should cause us to live this life with joy and gladness. So join us this Sunday as we unpack the Joy of Christmas.

Passage: Luke 2:1-7       Series Christmas in 4 Words
  Description: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. But as much as we think of Christmas in terms of lights, tinsel, and gifts, I wonder, how we would describe Christmas to someone who has never heard? Over the next four weeks, we will look at the 4 words that truly describe Christmas. This Sunday we will look at Luke chapter two and see hope come alive as Jesus makes his grand entrance. I like the words that Luke chooses to describe the time before Jesus in Luke 2:1, " In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world." Praise the Lord we don't live in "those days" anymore; we have the hope of new life that is found only in Jesus. So join us this Sunday as we begin this new series.

Passage: Luke 18:18-30       Series Call Me Crazy
  Description: This Sunday we will wrap up our crazy sermon series. We will look in Luke 18 where Jesus calls a young man to give up the very thing that stands in the way of his total faith in God. What we will discover in our time together is the formula to the crazy faith in which Jesus calls us: Trust, Obedience, and Perseverance.

Passage: Luke 10:25-37       Series Call Me Crazy
  Description: This Sunday we will unpack the kind of love that we are to have for our neighbors. In Luke 10, Jesus is asked to clarify whom we should love, and He replies with a crazy parable that would have totally shocked His listeners. Jesus first of all points out that love is an action word. He says to the scribe in this passage, "go and DO likewise." So for the disciples of Jesus, love is not just a feeling, but it is an action that is purposefully taken. Also, Jesus calls His disciples to love without discrimination. We don't have the luxury of picking and choosing whom we will love, but we simply love just as Christ has loved us. To the world this kind of love sounds crazy, but for the disciples of Jesus, these are our marching orders.

Passage: Luke 21:1-4       Series Call Me Crazy
  Description: This Sunday we will begin a new sermon series centered around the cost of being a disciple of Jesus. In Matthew 10:39, Jesus says, "Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it." The cost of following Jesus is our way of life. In other words, He becomes more important than everything we hold dear, which to many sounds absolutely crazy. Yet, Jesus says that when we put Him first and pay the high price of discipleship, we will actually find a better way to live. This Sunday we will look at the crazy teaching of Jesus about how we should approach money, finances, and giving. So make plans to join us this Sunday as we launch our new sermon series, "Call Me Crazy."

Passage: Acts 4:13-31    
  Description: This Sunday, we will unpack the story of Peter and John in Acts 3 and 4. We will especially key in on the boldness that the Spirit had given to these two Apostles. We are told in Acts 4:13 that "When they [religious leaders] saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and took note that these men had been with Jesus." I think at the end of the day that's what I want said about my family and me - that people would know we had been with Jesus. This Sunday we will learn how God can make us, take us, and shake us into bold leaders.
  Date: Sunday, October 15, 2017       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 20 mins 29 secs    
Passage: Matthew 7:1-5       Series Unthinkable
  Description: This Sunday we will be asking the question, "Is the Church a loving community or is it too judgmental?" Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." This Sunday we will look at what our response should be to a sinful world and how we can be full of grace and truth.
  Date: Sunday, October 08, 2017       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 32 mins 47 secs    
Passage: Matthew 6:25-34       Series Unthinkable
  Description: We live in a world that is becoming more and more isolated. Even in the midst of social media, where we count our "friends", people are experiencing loneliness and depression. Even as believers, we worry about the things we see in the world and we choose to shelter ourselves from the world, often leaving us unable or unwilling to help people who need Jesus. This Sunday we will ask the question, "Are we as Christians too sheltered?" What we will discover is that we are called to live in proximity to the world and practice purity, to seek His kingdom and His righteousness
  Date: Sunday, October 01, 2017       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 34 mins 31 secs    
Passage: Matthew 5:43-6:4       Series Unthinkable
  Description: This Sunday we will tackle whether or not the church is too hypocritical. Of the young people polled, Kinnaman and Lyons discovered that the unchurched are not shocked by the Christian's perceived hypocrisy. It seems that our young people have become "so jaded by the holes in people's lifestyles that they no longer are shocked to find incongruence between words and actions." This Sunday we will look at what Jesus says about hypocrites in the Sermon on the Mount. What we will ultimately discover is that our "Yes" needs to be yes, and our "No" needs to be no.
