For the final installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Albert gives a powerful and moving preaching on living a life of eternal significance. When our lives are interrupted by death, it changes our perspective, and we start to see things for what they are. When it's all said and done, God isn't impressed with our earthly accomplishments or our resume; what He wants to know is: have we lived selflessly for Christ?
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Chuck preaches a passionate message on following Christ through all of life's hardships. What comes to your mind when you think about God? Is He a 24/7 God, a father who is always watching after you, or is He passive? When life's challenges are coming at us head on, we must wrap our heads around this sacred truth: God is, and will always be, with us.
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, pastor Mark Chase delivers his first preaching on what it means to be completely immersed and in sync with God. What would it look like for you to take your hands off of the places where you’re hurting, so that the healing hands of the great physician might touch it, and you might be made whole? It’s important that God is our comforter, because what we give the power to comfort us we simultaneously give the power to control us.
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, pastor Jesse preaches a passionate and moving message about coming out of hiding and into God's presence. For those of us who say, “but you don’t even know what I’ve done”, Jesus does and he’s not even fazed by it. Whatever titles and names have been put on you, Jesus comes in and wipes it all away and he says, “You are my daughter, you are my son."
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Brittany Barron preaches her first service on the beauty of embracing our God given life stories. When we don’t embrace our stories, we miss what God is trying to do, and we miss that part of God for our lives. When our stories go untold, we lose the opportunity to step into someone’s narrative and change the course by sharing what God has done through our lives.
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Katie preaches a heartfelt message on the true nature of the kingdom of God. His kingdom is rarely found in auditoriums, but is often found in living rooms, allowing for true intimacy to arise. The kingdom of heaven is lot smaller and bigger than you thought... don't try to figure it out, just follow him.
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Becky speaks passionately about trusting God with the broken pieces of our lives. We have often have our own vision for how we want our lives to look, when suddenly something happens that makes it all come apart. If God gets those pieces he can build a picture that for all eternity will be beautiful, but he needs to be the builder.
For the first installment of the Summer Speaker series, Pastor Michael delivers an inspiring message on knowing who Jesus truly is in our lives. Our identities are often shaped by false labels, but God will pursue us over and over again until what he says about us is actually true. When we understand who God is, in that moment he re-identifies us and puts on a label that all other labels bow down to.
For the last installment of the Summer Speaker series, guest speaker Ricky Jenkins gives a heartfelt message on the all surpassing grace of God. No matter what we go through in life, we should know that God will always provide us with the strength we need to keep on running.
In this week's installment of the Summer Speaker series, Guest speaker Megan Fate Marshman gives a passionate preaching on what it means to truly know God. We can know a lot about God and the gospel, but end up missing the beauty of why Jesus came. God created not out of need but out of abundance, and he gave us the good news of his son so that we can live and love because of his abundance.
