Jesus On Divorce And Remarriage

Listen to "Jesus On Divorce And Remarriage" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 1-28-18

Divorce has wounded more people per square mile than almost any other relational tragedy. No wonder we're reluctant to subject ourselves to a sermon about it!

But one thing we can count on when Jesus is doing the teaching is that we will both hear truth and feel grace. I hope you will take the risk of joining us this Sunday as we study Mark 10:1-12, because only good can come from sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Teachable Moments

Listen to "Teachable Moments" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 1-28-18

Imagine looking back on February 4, 2018 as one of the most memorable days of your life--not because that was the day the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl, but because that was the day God spoke to you so personally and so powerfully that your life was never the same.

It is remarkable to me how God can use an ordinary church service to do something extraordinary in the life of a Jesus-follower. I'm praying that our study of Mark 9:30-50 will have that kind of impact on your life, and mine.

Power Surge

Listen to "Power Surge" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 1-28-18

We live in an age of medical "miracles". So much of what used to be incurable is now treated with remarkable success. But what should we do when we are told that "there is nothing more we can do"? That may be a hypothetical question for you right now, or it might be an urgent one.

I believe Mark 9:14-29 provides answers that are as relevant today as they were in the ancient world. From this passage we are going to learn how to access the healing power of God when it's all we have left.

And if you happen to need that power right now, we'll do everything we can to help you get it.

The Dot & The Line

Listen to "The Dot & The Line" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 1-21-18

Is following Jesus all it's cracked up to be?

Honestly, has your Christian life turned out to be what you thought it would be when you opted in? If not--if you have experienced disappointment or disillusionment as a disciple--you have probably heard the tempting whisper, "Why not opt out?"

The passage we will study together this Sunday at White Pine will explain why suffering is part of salvation, and, more importantly, it will remind us why it's still worth it to follow Jesus, painful though it may be at times. I pray that Mark 8:31 - 9:13 will give you a second wind.
