Passage: 2 Peter 2:5       Series Full Life
  Description: As we continue on in our series, "Full Life," the Apostle Peter says that we need to add to our faith the quality of self-control. Proverbs 25:28 says, "Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control." We live in a society that is constantly giving us the message to do what we want, to live however we want to live, or as Nike so aptly puts it, to "just do it." But this is not how the Lord would have us to live. There is a standard, a model, that we are to follow and that standard is Christ. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:1, "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." The only way that we can truly follow Christ is add to our faith, self-control. This Sunday we will learn that self-control takes discipline, it takes accountability, and it requires that we follow closely after Christ.

Passage: 2 Peter 1:5       Series Full Life
  Description: This week we will continue to look at the seven virtues found in 2 Peter 1:5-8. This week we will discuss the importance of knowledge and how important it is to our faith. What we will learn this week is that Knowledge comes from the Lord, in fact Proverbs 2:6 tells us, "For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." This knowledge will help us know the heart and mind of God, it will help us recognize the lies of the enemy, and will help our faith to grow strong. So join us this Sunday as we unpack what it means to live a full life.

Passage: 2 Peter 1:5       Series Full Life
  Description: This week we will begin a new sermon series looking at the seven virtues that Peter writes about in his second letter. He writes, "For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." This Sunday we will learn about adding to our faith, goodness; and how only the Lord can help us to be good.

Passage: Matthew 2       Series First Christmas
  Description: In Matthew 2 we are told of the Magi, wise men from the east, that followed a curious star in search of the Messiah. These "Magi" are a mystery to us, but their part in the Christmas story teach us a valuable lesson. In fact in Proverbs 9:10 we are told, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." This Sunday we will spotlight the importance of wisdom in seeking the Lord, in honoring the Lord with our gifts, and the wisdom in bowing down to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Join us this Sunday as we unpack what it truly means to be wise.

  Series First Christmas
  Date: Sunday, December 21, 2014       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 28 mins 15 secs    
Passage: Luke 1       Series First Christmas
  Description: Mary was a normal teenage girl, from a nowhere town, who would have married a poor man, who would have traveled not too far from her home, and she would have died like so many other women who lived in that era. But Jesus changed everything. In Luke 1:28-29 we are told, "The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. Chosen by God to carry His one and only Son, Mary would be blessed not only to give birth to the Christ-child, but to watch Him grow into a man, and eventually embrace Him as her Savior. Jesus changed everything for Mary and He can do the same for us. This Sunday we will discover that Jesus can truly change our lives as well. Join us this Sunday, invite a friend, and come worship, grow, and serve with us.

Passage: Luke 2       Series First Christmas
  Description: In Luke 2:4-7 we are told, "Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." We are not sure who the innkeeper was. We are not even told that there was an innkeeper, but we do know that there was no room for Jesus as he entered our world. This Sunday we will look at that first Christmas and ask the question, "have we made room for Jesus?"

Passage: John 1       Series Prove It
  Description: This Sunday we will set out to prove that Jesus really is God. The Apostle John said about Jesus in John 1:1-3, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made." Jesus is a part of the Trinity: God the Father, God the Holy Spirit, and God the Son. But what proofs do we have that Jesus really is God? Well, this Sunday we will look at eye-witness accounts of miracles that He performed, and we will recount His resurrection from the dead. Finally we will look at personal testimonies that speak to the truth that Jesus really is God.
  Date: Sunday, November 30, 2014       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 34 mins 18 secs    
Passage: 2 Peter 4:7-19       Series Prove It
  Description: In speaking to the New Testament Church, the apostle John says in 1 John 4:7-8, "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." The truth in the scriptures tells us that God is love; we see it clearly printed in black and white. But how do we prove it to a world that sees evil and hatred in every news story on television and in the papers? How do we Prove It? This Sunday we will look at some convincing proofs of God's love for us, and we will learn how we can prove it to a skeptical world.
  Date: Sunday, November 16, 2014       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 29 mins 32 secs    
Passage: 1 Timothy 6:6-11       Series Got Talent
  Description: This Sunday, as we draw this sermon series on stewardship to a close, we will unpack how we can begin to make the next steps up the generosity ladder. The ultimate example of giving is found in God's great gift to us in Jesus Christ. Jesus says in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." God gave because of his great love for us. This Sunday we will learn that we give because of our love for him. We will talk about how we can move the large barriers that might keep us from giving, and how we can look at life with an eternal perspective.
