Satisfying the Wrath of God

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes.) Sunday we look at the hard reality that God takes sin very seriously. Sometimes our dry, boring, discouraging lives come because we haven’t dealt with issues that are destroying us. We’ll learn that the Valley of Trouble (Achor) can become the valley of hope when we turn to God and…

Catalyst of Faith

Everything in life requires an element of faith. From bungy jumping off a bridge to driving to work. It is either a lot or a little, but never absent. If we are going to thrive as God’s people, faith in an ever-increasing measure is essential. How do we increase our faith? What is the catalyst to greater faith? Knowing God. This week we get to know Rahab, an…

Letting the Spirit Have His Way

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes.) What’s the best way to invest in your future spiritually, physically, morally, relationally – in any way that you can think of? As we conclude our study in Galatians (Galatians 6:7-18) we’ll consider the lesson of the sower. You won’t want to miss this important lesson…

Under One Gospel

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes) “Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery— to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.” (Galatians…

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes) Our Easter celebration begins in earnest as we take a serious look at the things that people assumed before he rose on the resurrection Sunday that followed and what people wanted to add after his resurrection (they’re still doing it). This vital message explains the scriptural foundation upon which all…

Jesus Reveals Our Hope

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes) Two men unknowingly walked in disbelief and bewilderment instead of celebration – they couldn’t see what was right in front of them because their eyes were closed. Then Jesus opened their eyes and everything changed. As we look into Luke 24:13-35, we’ll see how Jesus continues opening our eyes…

Being a Living Sacrifice

Malachi 2-3 is all about saying one thing and doing another. It’s not supposed to be that way yet we’re ready to give it all for God until it costs us something. We try to hold onto our statements while we explain away our actions. God calls on Israel (and on us) to give our best, not our leftovers. That means that we become the sacrifice to God with a life…

Godliness & Contentment

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes) It makes sense that this would lead us to a satisfying lifestyle. But what happens when it’s missing? Patrick explores the reality that this is not just a positive addition to our lives. The absence of godliness with contentment leads to serious consequences. As he opens up 1 Timothy 6:2b-10…
