Practice makes perfect. Those words have been drilled into musicians and athletes, and rightly so. When it comes to parenting, there are many principles we must practice to raise our children go be godly adults. But there is none better to show us than Jesus, who said “let the children come to me.” . His approach to children is perfect for us to practice in our imperfect family.

Series: 2020 Vision

There are four things a church absolutely can’t do or the fire will go out.

Series: 2020 Vision
Interestingly enough when you study the Book of Acts every time someone was set on fire for the first time by the Holy Spirit, guess what they did? They jumped in the water.

Passage: Acts 9:1
Series: 2020 Vision
We’ve all seen it. An athlete is suddenly “on fire” and can’t miss a bucket, can’t be stopped, can’t be beaten and changes the outcome of a game. The early church had its own superstar, and man was he on fire! He even started out on the wrong team. But as we will learn, when we are on fire for God, life change happens and we discover a new purpose burning in our hearts.

Today the church faces a lot of opposition. But it has always been this way. Not only has the church been on fire for centuries but it’s been UNDER fire as well. How do you keep the fire burning? You fight fire with fire. You learn how to stand when you’re under fire.

Over the years there have been many fires in our country. Some of them happened so long ago that there is no evidence that a fire was even there. Not so with the church.

Even though the church is bigger than it has ever been, would you really say it is better — more vibrant, more alive, more on fire than it has ever been? It can be, and it only takes a spark.

Passage: Micah 6:6
Series: New Year
Sun, Dec 22, 2019
The first ones to receive the news of Jesus’ birth was a group of illiterate and unrefined shepherds. How could someone so undeserving be on the top of God’s list?

Part of what makes the Christmas season so meaningful for many of us is the familiarity. We are familiar with the story, the decorations, the music, and the atmosphere. However, the unfamiliar frightens us at times. Mary and Joseph found themselves in an unfamiliar location, surrounded by unfamiliar people, in an unfamiliar environment. We will see how their response proves that God is still at work – and Christ can be found - even in the unfamiliar.

Reality Television is still a big thing nowadays. From Dancing with the Stars to Survivor to Big Brother, we love the unscripted reality shows. But how do we deal with life when it becomes unscripted? Suddenly, it’s not so attractive anymore. In Mary’s response, we will discover that when we recognize our lives are unscripted… that our greatest plans are not going to happen…we can still find Christ there.
