Listen to, "Crossing Borders" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 11-30-14
Does the story of your life include any miracles? Has anything happened since you started following Jesus that is so remarkable, only God could have done it?
Scan your past, and you may not see signs and wonders--but look more closely. Some miracles are too slow and too shy to grab headlines, and yet their power is unstoppable.
This Sunday at White Pine, as we study Acts 8:5-25, the Spirit of God just might show you something He has been doing out of the public eye to make you a walking miracle.

Listen to, "One Solitary Life" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 11-16-14
Is a Christlike life an attainable goal?
Theologians may say no, but this Sunday we'll meet a man whose life begs to differ. And from his example we will catch a vision of the difference we can make in the world if becoming like Jesus is our consuming passion.

Listen to, "Growing Pains" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 11-09-14
Almost everybody I know has a love-hate relationship with church growth. They want more people to find and follow Jesus, of course, but can't the church grow without changing? We like it the way it is, thank you.
Statistically, more churches are successful at resisting change than they are at accommodating growth. But what if White Pine could grow without losing that which makes it special? And what if you could help the church do that?
This Sunday we will be studying Acts 6:1-7, a passage that shows both you and me how each of us can help the church keep getting better, even as it gets bigger.

Listen to, "When Submission Is Sin" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 11-02-14
Submission to authority is something that should characterize every Christian. But is there ever a time when it would be a sin to submit?
The Book of Acts answers that question clearly. Yes.
But how do we know when that time has come? We'll find out this Sunday at White Pine, so that we'll be prepared for that moment when obedience to God calls for holy rebellion.
