Passage: Ecclesiastes 1:14       Series Empty
  Description: This Sunday we will begin a new sermon series centered around what life without God looks like. In Ecclesiastes 1:14, Solomon writes, "I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind." Life is empty without God. And yet so many people are living their lives without any sort of reference to God. Solomon researched the emptiness of life and came to several conclusions in the book of Ecclesiastes. We will track through this book and learn from Solomon the secret to living life to its fullest

Passage: Hebrews 4:12       Series LOVE GOD
  Description: There is something special about God's Word; it is unique and intriguing. Through His Word we can begin to know the heart of God. And yet, as we are trying to peer into God's heart, an amazing thing begins to happen - we also get a reflection of what is in our hearts as well. It's kind of scary. In Hebrews 4:12 we are told, "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."God's Word is alive, active, and it is fascinating. This Sunday we will learn that desiring to gather around God's Word shows our love for Him, because when we do, we learn a little about God and a lot about ourselves and how we can love Him more.

Passage: John 15       Series LOVE GOD
  Description: This Sunday we will unpack the idea that if we really love God, then we will make prayer a priority. Theologian, Ben Patterson writes, "Prayer is not mainly about communication with God, but communion with God." Our love for God is all about relationship; building, fostering, and staying connected to the Giver of Life. Jesus said in John 15:5, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." This Sunday we will discover that prayer is the way we "remain" in Him.

Passage: Matthew 22:37       Series LOVE GOD
  Description: In Matthew 22:37, Jesus says that the greatest action that we can take, in this life, is to "love the Lord our God." It was Jesus who scolded the Ephesian church because they had "forsaken their first love." Our number one priority in this life is to love God with our whole self, but how do we do this? What does real love for God look like? In this new sermon series, we will explore our love for God and determine the actions that best express the love in our hearts.

Passage: John 1:14       Series Heroes and Villains
  Description: This Sunday we will look at the real hero in all of scripture -Jesus. The coming of Jesus was announced in Genesis 3:15. It was pronounced to Abraham when the Lord said that, "all peoples would be blessed through him." The prophets foretold of this long awaited hero, and yet when He arrived, the people did not recognize Him for the hero that He was and is. This Sunday we will look at Jesus and the fact that He came, not with an iron fist, but "full of grace and truth."

Passage: 1 Samuel 13    
  Description: This Sunday we will look at a popular figure in the Scriptures that started out as a hero, but quickly became an villain in God's big story. King Saul made some really bad choices that led to him moving further and further away from the Lord. In fact, Saul found himself so far away from the Lord that he was no longer filled with the Holy Spirit, but was plagued by an evil spirit. When I think of Saul's life, I think about Jesus's words in Matthew 7:13, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it." This Sunday we will study Saul's life and see how we can keep from making the same mistakes.

Passage: 2 Samuel 12:1-13       Series Heroes and Villains
  Description: This Sunday we will look at King David's story of daring and courage. David's life is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, and yet from his rise to stardom to his escape from King Saul, David remained steadfast in following God with all of his heart. His story is a picturesque narrative of what a true hero looks like . . . that is until he gets comfortable and sins against the Lord. What we will discover is that being a hero for the Lord is not about our perfection (which is impossible), but it is about what we do with our imperfection and how we seek repentance.

Passage: Acts 9:1-31       Series Heroes and Villains
  Description: We will begin a new sermon series this Sunday looking at some of the Heroes and some of the more "villainous" people of the Bible.  What we will discover over the course of this series is what makes one a hero or a villain are the choices that we make.  If we choose to seek after God and put Him first, then we find ourselves making the choices of a hero.  And conversely, if we choose to put ourselves first, then we can come dangerously close to crossing that line into villainy.  This Sunday we will unpack the life of Paul and study the choices he made to go from villain to hero.
  Date: Sunday, December 25, 2016       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 14 mins 5 secs    
Passage: Luke 2:10-11       Series God With Us
  Description: Have you ever paid attention to the announcements of the angel in the Christmas story? Angels simply repeat the message that God has for His people. This Sunday we will key-in on the message that the angel proclaimed to Joseph and to the Shepherds. In Matthew 1:21 the angel says, "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." The announcement is one of salvation, that Jesus has come to save you and me. So join us this Sunday as we unpack this message and rejoice, for unto us a Savior has been born, and He is Christ the Lord!

Passage: Luke 2:8-15       Series God With Us
  Description: I think that it is fascinating that out of all the people on the planet in those days, that shepherds were counted as the ones who were worthy of getting a ringside seat to an angelic celebration of Jesus's birth. You see in those days, among all the occupations, shepherding was considered one of the lowest. Shepherds were looked at as untrustworthy and their job made them ceremonially unclean. But this is true to form for Jesus; Jesus made a beeline for those that were unworthy, the outcasts, or those who were on the low rung of the social ladder. So it makes sense that the angels would be sent to the Shepherds first, on that Silent Night . . . that Holy Night. This Sunday we will unpack what it means to be holy and how, even though none of us are worthy, by the grace of God anyone of us can choose to be holy.
