Despite our most fervent prayers, there are times when God doesn't show up the way we want him to. The cancer isn't cured. The company fails. The foreclosure goes through. In this message, Bobby tells us what to look for when it feels like God is ignoring our cries for help.

Sometimes it seems God is answering everyone’s prayers but ours. Does that mean it’s our fault? Does that mean there is something wrong with us? It’s difficult to handle God’s silence if we think it has something to do with how God feels about us. In this message we’ll learn that we mustn’t associate our difficulty with the character of God.

Passage: Luke 1:5-17
For 400 years, God did not speak to the Jewish people. The promise of a coming Messiah at the end of the Old Testament era was beginning to get lost in the stunning silence. And generation after generation of people died and there was no fulfillment of that promise. They prayed and they waited and they prayed and they waited. Some remained faithful while many of the Jews peeled off into other things and abandoned their faith because they concluded it must be a myth or a fairy tale. But there were some who, in spite of the absence of God’s voice, held on to the promise, even after 400 years of “Silent Nights”.

Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has - as opposed to, say, a consumer-oriented emphasis on what one wants or needs. But it is not something we are born with. Every parent knows we have to teach our children to say “thank you”. Why is that? Just before we celebrate Thanksgiving, in this message Bobby reveals not only why we are ungrateful, but how we can change.

Passage: Joshua 1:1-11
Series: I Quit
The opposite of confidence is doubt. Life is too short to spend it doubting – doubting our abilities, our faith, our convictions, and most of all God’s plan for our life. One of the basic truths of Christianity is that God has a purpose for your life. We will discover a great action plan from the Bible to help overcome doubts and live the life God has for us.

There is a fear for just about everything. The thing about fear is that it limits us. The fear of heights limits you from flying. The fear of plants limits you from enjoying some of God’s most beautiful handiwork. Bibliophobia, the fear of books, limits you from endless wisdom and entertainment. Fear limits us, especially if we are afraid of failing. In this message I will show how we can overcome the fears that limit our potential.

Creek’s End partners with communities and orphanages around the world through the organization Coreluv International. We work in impoverished areas to provide an orphan's six basic needs and to see hope returned to children, families and communities across nations. Mike Reiszner, the founder of Coreluv, will share with us how we can go beyond ourselves and rise up to defend the orphan, for they cannot defend themselves.

Passage: James 4:1
Series: I Quit
Arguments can get us into a lot of trouble. One of the most common complaints you will hear is "We just can't seem to get along” Married couples say, “We argue so much. We love each other. Why is it we have major blowups over such minor issues?" It happens in other relationships as well. Life is too short to be arguing all the time, so in this message I point out what causes arguments and what it takes to avoid arguing altogether.

Passage: John 3:1
Series: I Quit
If you ask most people what you have to do to get into heaven (assuming they believe in heaven or an afterlife), the overwhelming response will be some form of “being a good person.” Most, if not all, religions and worldly philosophies are ethically based. Whether it’s Islam, Judaism, or secular humanism, the teaching is common that getting to heaven is a matter of being a good person—following the Ten Commandments or the precepts of the Quran or the Golden Rule. In this message we will learn from Jesus that being good is not good enough.

RESPONSIBILITIES. We all have them. But we don't all take them as seriously as we ought to. Wouldn't it be great, though, if we all took responsibility for the things we are responsible for? Wouldn't it be great if you took responsibility for everything you're responsible for? It's time to stop the finger-pointing and excuse-making and to remove the "IR" in irresponsible.

Passage: James 2:14
Series: Better
You can believe all of the right things, but if you don’t apply what you believe to your life, it is useless to you. Bobby will show us that faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. God will use what you believe to preserve your life, finances, and family through applying what you believe. That’s a better choice.

Did you think by the time you reached this age in life, this position, things would be different? There may be some things that are nagging you in the back of your mind that have robbed you of your joy. The Bible says you can have joy, even in the midst of bad circumstances. Bobby will help us discover in this message that asking why is not the solution. There is a better choice.

Passage: Matthew 18:21
Series: Better
Does forgiving someone mean they get away with it? If not, why does it feel so good to hold a grudge? In this message, we will hear an explanation of how Jesus’ death on the cross teaches us to release the grip of our grudges. We can choose better —to forgive.

Passage: John 8:31
Series: Better
All of us have defining moments in our lives when we are brought face-to-face with an old principle or truth, and we’re forced to view all of life through that lens. If we believe things about God that aren’t true, we’ll never have intimacy with Him. In this message we will discover how distorting the truth about God affects different areas of our lives. A better choice is waiting.
