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.

Passage: Luke 5:1
Series: Miracles
As Creator, Jesus knows where the fish are in the Lake of Gennesaret, a power Peter obviously lacks. Christ, as the sovereign Lord of the earth and its seas, could have commanded thousands of fish to leap onto shore, but He directs them into the man's net. The combination of the precise place, time, and mass of fish following Jesus' instructions qualifies this as a genuine miracle, one witnessed by many. Join us as Community Pastor Tim Seippel concludes the series “MIRACLES”.

Passage: Matthew 14:22
Series: Miracles
A miracle is a phenomenal or supernatural event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers, and more often than not cannot be explained by the laws of nature. God never operates contrary to His Word or to the laws of nature which He has established, but He has the prerogative to supersede them. Although it defied natural laws, the miracle of Jesus walking on water showed God’s imagination and sense of humor in a unique way. Join us as Young Adult Pastor Wade Henderson teaches.

Passage: John 2:1
Series: Miracles
The wine gave out. That would have been a social embarrassment in that culture — or any culture for that matter. Jesus tells the servants to draw water and fill the jars. Did Jesus touch the water? Did he speak magic words over the water? Join us as Student Pastor Jesse Hicks teaches on the first miracle Jesus performed.

Passage: John 11:33
Series: Miracles
Why didn't God do something? Sometimes, despite our most fervent prayers, God doesn't show up the way we want him to. The cancer isn't cured. The company fails. The foreclosure goes through. What do you do when it feels like God forgot to show up?

Passage: Mark 8:22
Series: Miracles
Of the five senses in the human body, our sight may be the most important to us. In the U.S. someone goes blind every 20 minutes. What a sad statistic that is. When Jesus arrived on the scene, a blind man's life drastically changed. Not only would he see with his eyes, but he would also come to a clear spiritual view of Christ.

Passage: Matthew 17:24
Series: Miracles
There are actually fish in the sea of Galilee which pick the fertilized eggs off the sea floor and hold them in their mouths until they hatch. Some use this to prove that this was not a miracle. But the response to that is how did Jesus know that that particular fish had a coin in its mouth, that Peter would catch the right one and how did he know its denomination or amount?
