God's Symphony

Listen to "God's Symphony" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-30-17

Can you believe that God wants to use you like no one else?

It's true.  Your heavenly Father created you, and Christ redeemed you, and the Holy Spirit has equipped you to share His love with others in a totally unique way.

This Sunday I hope to help you begin a discovery process that will lead to you being used by God like never before.

Building Others Up

Listen to "Building Others Up" by Josh Siebert, Sunday, 07-23-17

Alice Roosevelt Longworth once said, "If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me."

We smile because there is nothing quite like talking about other people, especially if it's juicy.  The problem is that it kills relationships and damages everyone involved, including you.

So how do we discuss issues and others in a way that makes life better?  Join us this Sunday as we study the discipline of building each other up.

When You Have Been Hurt

Listen to "When You Have Been Hurt" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-16-17

Very few of us make it through life without at some point being hurt deeply by others.  Perhaps that's because we, as Christians, are being conformed to the likeness of Christ, and we can only become like Him by experiencing what He experienced.

This Sunday at White Pine we are going to see how Jesus treated those who hurt Him so that we will know how to treat those who hurt us. For a sneak preview, read John 13!

How to Make Good Decisions

Listen to "How to Make Good Decisions" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-09-17

Few things are as stressful as decision-making, because every decision changes your destiny. Where you are today is the result of all the decisions you have made. 

No wonder we ask God to tell us what to do. So much is at stake, and we don't want to blow it.

But how can we receive from a God who is so often silent the guidance we need to make good decisions? The Book of Proverbs gives us some great answers to that question. If you're not at a fork in the road right now, you will be soon--so I hope you'll listen to learn how to know which way to go.

Taming the Tongue

Listen to "Taming the Tongue" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 07-02-17

Sticks and stones might break bones, but if you really want to hurt someone, there's no more powerful weapon than words.

But what if you want to really help someone? Again, words are the most life-changing gift we can give.

So how do we use our tongue as a force for good rather than evil? The Proverbs give us several answers to that question, and we'll search them out this Sunday at White Pine.
