"Growing Up In Jesus"

Do you ever consider how old you are from a spiritual perspective? Are you a baby? A child? An adolescent? An adult? How do we grow up and move from totally dependent to mature? We are going to work on our spiritual journeys together this summer on Sunday mornings.

Happy Mother's Day!
We are so glad that you are here worshipping with us! Today is all about you women. This is your Sunday! Think about how the roles, rights and responsibilities of women have changed over the last 50 years. What has not changed though, are the wonderful promises that God has for you. Promises which strengthen you, encourage you, and help you be the woman that God intends for you to be.

It was a wonderful time!

April 21st, 2019 Easter Sunday

We welcome you to our Easter Celebration today.

The whole reason Jesus came, was crucified and rose again, was to show the love of the Father to the world. This love sets us free from anything in our past and gives us hope for the future. If you have any questions about God or would like someone to pray with you talk to Pastor Randy Berg. Every Sunday we also have members of our prayer team that would love to pray with you.

It is Palm Sunday

This is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd honoring Him as King.
But what kind of king were they looking for?
What kind of Jesus are you looking for?

"How to Finish Well"

Today we are concluding our journey through the book of Acts. Paul has been the primary leader of the church as it spread into the Roman Empire.
He is a wonderful example of how to finish your life well, investing in what is eternal. Today think about how you want to finish your life.
How you are living right now, regardless of your age, will have a lot to do with how you finish.

Barriers to the Gospel

What type of resistance did the early church leaders face as they expanded their mission into the Roman Empire?
What barriers do we face as we talk about our faith experience with people who are not yet Christians?

March 24th, 2019

Today we are in Acts 10, starting at verse 11.
Peter is being challenged as to who the gospel is for. Is it for a select group or open to anyone?

March 17th, 2019

Is Jesus really God?

Is he powerful enough to overcome the obstacles in your life? Does he care enough about you to listen and to answer your prayers? In Acts 12 we see God respond to prayer in a powerful way by saving Peter from prison. But does God act in our present day? We hope that through this sermon you are encouraged by the stories of answered prayers of our congregation and that you begin or continue to incorporate prayer into your regular rhythm of life.

"A Most Unlikely Conversion"

Saul of Tarsus was the last person in the world you would expect to be a follower of Jesus.
What made him change?
What can we expect God to do in preparing the hearts of people we know who are far from God?

"Hearing the Voice of the Spirit"

Bible text today - Acts 8
How do you know God is telling you to do something?
We are encouraged to seek God's will, but how can we be sure?
Today we are looking at Philip and how the Spirit directed him to specific people and places.
Was that experience just for that time or is it for us today?

Sunday February 17, 2019

In today's sermon we hear the story of Stephan's martyrdom from Acts Chapters 6 & 7.
As we explore the role of the church, I would like us to consider the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Particularly, we will focus on what to expect if you walk by the Spirit.

Bring your Bible as we study the Acts of the Apostles.

Youth Pastor Justin Knapp filled in for Pastor Randy Berg today.
Are you in a desert? Are you going through a trial in life and struggling with the silence of God? For 400 years the nation of Israel had not heard from God. For 400 years the nation of Israel had been waiting for the Messiah. In Matthew Chapter 3, we see that Messiah commissioned by a poor desert prophet. In our sermon today we will explore how God uses deserts in our lives and how His Kingdom is coming through repentance.

God With Us..."Peace, Something Worth Finding & Keeping"

What is Peace? Is it the calm between storms? Is it brief moments in our busy lives where we can stop and relax, only to start up again when the bell rings again? I don't believe momentary or 5 minute blocks of time are the peace God has in mind for us. He promises us peace which rules our hearts and minds.

What habits can we develop to keep THANK-BASED throughout the year?

Sunday November 18, 2018

BE Thankful

This whole week we are reminded of Thanksgiving and the need to be thankful.
Be thankful for what?
Does your thanks stop with your possessions or good health?

Sunday November 11, 2018

What Does God want you to BE?

God has a lot to say about giving generously and it does not all have to do with money.
It's not something that kicks in at Thanksgiving or Christmas, or when you walk by a Salvation Army kettle.
Generosity is more a mindset than an action.
If God were to evaluate your heart, would He say you were a generous person?

Sunday November 4, 2018

What Does God want you to BE?

BE STILL

Do you hear the voice of God when He speaks to you? What are the distractions in your life?
What noise is constantly drowning out the voice of God as He tries to speak into your life?
How can we shut out what we don't need in order to open up to hear what we need to hear?

Sunday October 28, 2018

What Does God want you to BE?

Today we are looking at what it means to be on the receiving end of the incredible love of God.

Do you want to be WITH God or do you want to BE God?

(Our Youth Pastor Justin Knapp took over today while Pastor Randy was at play)
Looking at Genesis Chapter 3, Justin uses the story of the fall as an illustration of temptation, connecting how God is with Adam and Eve in the garden, to parenting.
Be a parent of YES, so that your NOs matter.

Sunday October 7, 2018

What Do You Want to BE?

Become... Belong... Be Transformed  
God calls us to Be Bold / Be Strong.
We are often put into places where God needs us to be His light and voice.
It is not easy and we can shy away and do nothing, or we can show up, stand up, and speak up.
Where do you find you are challenged to be bold for God and His agenda?
