"Fresh Bread: What's God Teaching Me?" / Joe Campbell / 07-28-13

Listen to, "Fresh Bread: What's God Teaching Me?" by Pastor Joe Campbell from 07-28-13

I've been thinking a lot about true worship lately. (That's weird, right?) David wrote in the Psalms, "I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth". We need to move beyond a view of worship that's based on location, time and approach, and see that worship can take place with every part of our lives if we are willing to bring all of who we truly are into communion and intimate contact with all that God truly is. I am looking so forward to exploring this with you. We were made for this!

Fresh Bread: What's God Teaching Me? / Sunday 07-21-13

Listen to, "Fresh Bread: What's God Teaching Me? From Sunday 07-21-13

Some people wish that God would simply show Himself so that we could know Him. Throughout the Bible it is clear that He has been trying! It didn't take much reading for me to come to the conclusion that God desperately wants us to know Him. From Creation up to the present, God has been working to reveal Himself to us. The question is, "When will we turn to Him, and take the time to know Him?"

In this message we will be focusing on how God has revealed Himself to us. We are going to follow last week's format by listening to a few volunteers share how God has revealed Himself to them personally. It is always exciting to see God at work!

What God is Teaching Me / 07-14-13

Have you ever wondered how pastors decide what part of the Bible to teach every Sunday? We ask one simple question: What does God want to say to His people? We don't always get it right, but our goal is to apply the timeless truth of Scripture to the specific needs of the people we serve.
But in this message, Pastor Greg does something he rarely does, he's just going to share with you what God is teaching him, trusting that there's some overlap between the way God is working in his life and the way He is working in yours. Pastor Greg also asks a few others to share what God is teaching them.

Notes and Discussion Question: Quitting Is Not An Option

Quitting Is Not An Option

Listen to, "Quitting Is Not An Option" by Greg Sidders, Sunday 07-07-13

"The cost of discipleship" is a phrase that many Christians use but few understand. How can it be costly to follow Jesus when salvation is a free gift? Some say that discipleship is different than mere Christianity--a second step of commitment following the first step of faith. I don't think that's it. I think the key to harmonizing the no-cost gospel and the high cost of discipleship is in Luke 14:25-33, the passage we will be studying together this message.

Listen to Greg's Message, "Extraordinary" from Sunday 06-30-13

God specializes in using ordinary people to do extraordinary things. But why does He use some ordinary people instead of others? We'll find out in this message, and I think you'll be surprised by the radical simplicity of the answer. This is one message when I so hope you will listen with an open heart, because what you do with the truth you hear just may alter the course of your one and only life, from ordinary to extraordinary.
