Superheroes Part 2

Listen to Greg Sidders in, "Superheroes Part 2"

I had been a follower of Jesus for only a few months when I attended a retreat with this theme:Make a Mark That's Hard to Erase. The words were carved into wood--and into my heart, because they spoke to my deepest longing: to live the kind of life that, in some small way, would change the world for the better.

But I wondered (then, and many times since), Could God really use someone like me? I think that feeling of inadequacy is one of the most common barriers to a life of significance. We assume our ambitions exceed our abilities.

But the Bible is full of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things, and in this message we're going to learn from one of those biblical superheroes what it takes for an average Joe/Jane to make a mark that's hard to erase.

I believe God's plans for you are bigger than you can imagine, and I'm excited to share with you some nitty-gritty steps you can take to make His dream for your life come true.

Super Heroes / Part 1

Listen to "Super Heroes" part 1 / Greg Sidders, White Pine Community Church

Do you think your best days of serving God are a) behind you or b) ahead of you?

The older we get, the more likely we are to circle "a"--because with age comes the residue of past mistakes and the obstacle of deep ruts, both of which make many people stop dreaming and start settling.

In Part 1 of our summer series Superheroes, you will meet a man who thought he was past his prime right before God handpicked him to change the world.  If you've been wondering whether God can use someone with wrinkles and a regrettable track record, you're going to get a second wind in this message.

In God We Trust

It's stamped into every coin and printed on every dollar bill, but for how many of us is it really true?

"In God we trust."

There are vast differences in the extent to which we trust God, and the reason is simple: We all observe and experience a lot of things that make trusting Him hard. Why should we trust Him? What rational basis is there for believing that, when we draw near to God, He won't let us down.

In this message Greg uses three strands of biblical truth to braid a rope that we can use to strangle whatever doubts we may have about God's trustworthiness. If you have trust issues, this is one message you need to hear. Trust me :-)
