Passage: Daniel 1       Series Living In A Hostile World
  Description: As we watch the news and see events unfold, it is becoming ever apparent that we are living in troubling times. In this sermon series, we will be looking at the life of Daniel to see how he was able to navigate living in a very hostile world. In Daniel chapter one, we see that Daniel places his integrity in the Lord by not defiling himself with the food sacrificed to idols from the king's table. As we live in an increasingly hostile world, we would do well to emulate Daniel's approach and be men and women of integrity.

Passage: Genesis 18       Series That Will Leave A Mark
  Description: This Sunday we will learn that in order to leave a legacy that will far outlast our lives, we need to have compassion for others. In Genesis 18, God shares with Abraham the sinfulness that is taking place in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Apparently things had gotten so bad that the Lord was forced into grievous action. As Abraham hears the news, he begins to plead for the lives of the people in these two cities. In Genesis 18:24-25 Abraham says to the Lord, "What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far be it from you to do such a thing-to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?" This Sunday we will discuss the need to leave behind a legacy of compassion.

Passage: Genesis 13-15       Series That Will Leave A Mark
  Description: Last Sunday we kicked off the new year discussing how we could leave a mark, a legacy, on the lives of others. This Sunday we will take a closer look at Abraham's life and see that one of the qualities that set him apart from everyone else was his reliance on the Lord. In our story this week, Abraham is being blessed by the Lord, and this will lead to difficulties between him and his nephew, Lot. What we will see is Abraham's total trust in God, and how it allowed him to give his nephew, Lot, the better land. Abraham tells Lot in Genesis 13:8-9, "Let's not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herders and mine, for we are close relatives. Is not the whole land before you? Let's part company. If you go to the left, I'll go to the right; if you go to the right, I'll go to the left." Lot chose the better, more fertile land, but Abraham didn't have to worry about how he would see him through; he placed complete reliance on God. This Sunday we will discover that in order to truly leave a legacy that will outlast our life, we will need to place our total trust in the Lord. -

Passage: Genesis 12       Series That Will Leave A Mark
  Description: We are starting a brand new sermon series for this new year centered on leaving a legacy for the next generation. This series will beg the question, "What sort of Legacy will we leave behind for your children or grandchildren?" In this study we will dissect the life of Abraham and see how he was able to impact those around him and leave his mark in this world. This Sunday we will discover that our legacy begins with the Fear of the Lord, and how simple obedience can change the course of one's life, one's family, and even the surrounding community. Join us this Sunday as we set out to leave a mark in this world.

Passage: Luke 2:8-18       Series OUR COMING SAVIOR
  Description: This Sunday we will dissect the role that the shepherds played in the story of our coming Savior. It's very curious that the angels would announce the Messiah's birth, not to kings or religious officials, but to ordinary shepherds. We might deduce that by going to the lowly shepherds, the angels were proclaiming that the Gospel is for the social outcast; or perhaps it was a foreshadowing that Jesus would be a shepherd for all the people; or if Christ's birth did come in the winter, we might conclude that the shepherds were raising sheep for the Passover a few months later and that the angels were hinting that Jesus would be the Lamb that would take away the sins of the world. Maybe it's all of the above, but I think the answer is found in the angelic message of Luke 2:11, "Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." On that silent night, a gift was given to you and to me. This Sunday we will unpack what our response should be in light of this great and wonderful gift.

Passage: Luke 2:1-7       Series OUR COMING SAVIOR
  Description: We are not sure that there was an actual "innkeeper," but we read in Luke 2:7 that at the time of our Savior's arrival there was no room for Him. This Sunday we will explore what it means to not only make room for Jesus, but to give Him the entire room. We will discover that our lives are forever changed when we allow Jesus to take control. We will also see that when Jesus moves-in, we also have more room in our hearts than we ever thought possible - room enough for others. But the most incredible thing that we will discover is that when we make room for Jesus, He in turn will make room for us.

Passage: Malachi 3:6-12       Series Fields of Gold
  Description: This Sunday we will look at God's plan for giving. In Malachi chapter 3, God points out that His people had abandoned His plan for giving, which was why they were struggling financially. The Lord says in Malachi 3:10, "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." This week we will unpack God's plan for partnering with Him through Priority giving, Percentage giving, and Progressive giving. So join us this Sunday as we dissect God's plan for giving.

Passage: Matthew 6:19-34       Series Fields of Gold
  Description: This Sunday we will highlight how we are free to give - not free in the sense that we can give, but free in the sense that God can remove the barriers that can stand in our way of giving. We will see that we need to understand that our basic needs will be met by our heavenly Father. This fact should free us up to give as the Lord calls us to give. This freedom causes us to see that we are actually partners with God. As Jesus says in Matthew 6:33, we need to "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."

Passage: Matthew 25:14-30       Series Fields of Gold
  Description: This Sunday we will continue to spotlight the struggle between fear and generosity. In Matthew 25:14, Jesus digs down deep to help alleviate the tension of sowing in fear versus sowing in faith; and He does so by highlighting who really has ownership of our possessions. In the opening line of His parable Jesus says, "Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them." Did you catch that? The wealth is the "man's," and God is this man. What we will find is that the Lord owns it all; He allows us to have access to these possessions; and this knowledge gives us the solution to the conflict we feel as we give.
