One of the greatest kings in Israel’s history was King David. He was also one of the wealthiest kings. But David understood there was one King whose status and reign was above his own. He knew that all he had in power and possessions came from a higher throne than the one on which he sat. We will discover in this message how our wealth – our money and possessions – is subject to a higher King who wants to use it for eternal reasons. We will bring a special offering to the Chest of Joash this Sunday.

Because we are part of a democracy rather than a monarchy we really don’t understand the concept of thrones. We talk about the throne of God but because we are not accustomed to honoring a king, serving a king, or answering to a king in our society then we struggle to appreciate the importance of enthroning someone as king. In this opening message, a game we played as children will challenge us to see God in a different way – as the King He really is.

Humans are often self-centered. Certainly some are more so than others. Even people that do a lot for others, inevitably fall victim to thoughts about how they are concerned for their own priorities. The opening words of Pastor Rick Warren’s best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, are explicitly meant to get people away from that thinking: “It’s not about you.” The book clearly sets the tone, at the outset, that Christians and prospective Christians need to be focused on living their life the way God commanded his followers to so that they may be a part of his Kingdom of Heaven for eternity.

Overloaded people live in deficit —emotional deficit, relational deficit, and spiritual deficit. If you have ever overdrawn your checking account, you know the immediate stress and pressure that comes. You immediately want to find a way to cover it, but where do you find money when you are completely out? It is just as possible to get overdrawn in life. When you are overwhelmed, you find yourself living in deficit. You get overdrawn in your marriage, overdrawn with your kids, and you just plain run out of the spiritual, mental, relational, and emotional currency that it takes to really enjoy life. Join us for this final message as we learn from Jesus how to find rest in Him.

Stress is the #1 cause of health problems —mentally and physically. And there are few things that stress us out on a consistent basis like work does, especially when it takes away from all of the other things that life has to offer. This message will show us the areas of our life we need to address in order to experience rest from the stress.

We are living in a society that by all accounts is working more and resting less. In the U.S., 85.8 percent of males and 66.5 percent of females work more than 40 hours per week. For many of us, more work leads to more stress and a lower quality of life. Without time to unwind, take care of your home, spend time with loved ones, enjoy our hobbies, connect with friends, our life is out of balance. God never meant it to be that way. In this message we will discover why God gave us a Sabbath.

According to Jesus, our location in eternity is not based on social standing or lineage. It’s based on God’s grace. His cheerful willingness to grant forgiveness to anyone honest enough to admit that they are not God, but that they need God in their lives; that at their core, they are morally flawed and in need of a Savior. In this final message, we’ll get an interesting glimpse by Jesus in the life to come.

You’ve heard it before. “You only live once.” If that’s true, and we know it is, shouldn’t we make sure it really counts? In this message, we find Jesus telling a story of how one man made the most of his one opportunity. We will discover the best thing we can do with our one and only life

The Biblical story of the Prodigal Son is familiar to most people. But if you study this story carefully, you’ll discover that it can tell you more about God than you’ve ever dreamed. This story is one of the most important stories in the entire Bible because it’s the story of what the Heavenly Father is like. If you want to know how God feels about you, if you want to know how much you are worth in God’s eyes, or if you’ve ever wondered if you have any significance in this vast universe, then this message is for you

What’s really important to God? If you study the Bible, you’ll discover that it says that God is on an all-out search for two kinds of people. Read it from cover to cover, and you’ll find that it pictures God in search mode. But He’s not like a casual shopper who strolls through the mall just to see what’s there. He’s intense and intent about finding and working with two kinds of people, and all of us can fit into one of these two categories. Come find out where you fit in.

It’s easy to get fuzzy on the purpose of life. We get caught up in so many activities and distractions, we forget why God put us on this earth. But God did create each of us with a purpose, and as a church a divine purpose. We just have to make sure our purpose aligns with God’s purpose. In this message we will discover what God’s purpose is.
