"We keep doing church because of Jesus, through Jesus, and for Jesus."

Church can be complicated and complex. Between the programs and the problems it is easy to forget about the the essentials. We sometimes lose sight of the things that make church good. In this series, several pastors share biblical perspectives on doing the important stuff.

Featured image for “Hosanna”
A Palm Sunday Sermon on Matthew 21:1-11 that teaches how Jesus did not see a distinction between Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter. He was the Coming King who set things right and offered salvation when He entered Jerusalem, when He died on a cross, and when He rose from the dead.
Featured image for “The Jesus Experiment”
The Jesus Experiment is an invitation for people to become like Jesus in their feelings, thoughts, words and deeds. Each week they’ll focus on a different aspect of Jesus’ life, including how he faced his fears, how he talked with God, how he overcame evil, how he helped the vulnerable and others. We will begin to discover through our sermons and the book of the same name, how Jesus felt, thought, spoke and acted in specific situations. During the week as they face a similar situation, people will examine their own feelings, thoughts, words and deeds and compare them to Christ’s. Next, people will ask God to conform them into the likeness of Jesus. This isn’t just a sermon series, it is a concentrated effort to become more like Jesus.
Featured image for “Idol Fail”
One of the most consistently asked questions of people doubting God is, “How can God allow bad things to happen to good people?” In this sermon, guest speaker Travis Hilley, preaching on Psalm 73, teaches that doubt of God is normal – especially in the face of bad things. Travis, while sharing personal moments of doubt, also teaches that this doubt can be overcome by putting second things second, first things first, and remembering that idols will always fail us.
Featured image for “Aging Well”
The topic of aging is misunderstood. Most people mistakenly believe that aging is synonymous with getting old – purely physiological in nature. However, aging is a spiritual topic. In this series, Chad teaches on the topic of aging. Through this series listeners will learn what aging is, why it is hard, and how to do it well at every age.
Featured image for “Christmas According to Angels”
This is a study of the birth of Jesus, the Christmas story, through the voices of a group that is particularly special to the story – the angels. Many know that the angels proclaimed the birth of Jesus, but few remember the what they proclaimed about his birth. In this study we are reminded of why the birth of Jesus was so significant. In being so reminded, our minds and hearts are drawn back to the only real reason to celebrate Christmas – the birth of Jesus.
Featured image for “Vision”
Opinions are everywhere. In a world full of internet bloggers it is difficult to determine what is true and what is not. As Chad Harms preaches through the book of 2 Peter in the series “Vision” we begin to see ways that we can determine truth (Pete calls it “knowledge”) in a world that makes it difficult. Peter refers to these knowledge determiners in terms of eyesight or vision. This sermon series helps us discover knowledge in a dimly lit world.
Featured image for “The Symbolism of the Lord’s Supper”
Communion, also known as The Lord’s Supper, is often celebrated. Despite this, it seems that many people have a very limited understanding of what it is and why they do it. This sermons is about the multi-faceted meanings of The Lord’s Supper.
Featured image for “Wait…”
Have you ever wished you could experience God? Maybe you were facing a difficult decision and you desperately desired an answer from the all-knowing. Perhaps you had experienced a great tragedy and you longed for the loving embrace of the one who is love. Or maybe, you simply felt in your spirit that something was missing and you thought that God’s nearness could fill the void. For those of you who have ever wished to see, feel, or hear from God, but have been left wanting, this series is for you. This year we commemorate the week traditionally called Epiphany by examining the biblical concept of seeking an appearance or manifestation of God. What we will see is that God’s presence is best found when waiting for him.
Featured image for “Present”
Every year during the Christmas season the message from pastors and churches is the same: Make this Christmas about Jesus. But, no matter how cute the cliche – think “Jesus is the reason for the season” or “Keep Christ in Christmas” – doing so proves difficult or unimportant to almost everyone. Between the cooking, decorating, shopping, and family gatherings, little time or energy is left for Jesus. Besides, what does it even mean to make Christmas about a baby that lived almost 2,000 years ago? In the story of the magi (also known as “three kings” or “wise men”) we discover the true value of Christmas and find compelling reasons and tangible ways we can absolutely make this Christmas about Jesus.
