"HOPE Rich"

Paul’s prayer for his readers in Rome was, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (Romans 15:13) And this is God’s desire for us all, to “abound in hope.” Join us for,

“HOPE Rich,” a four-part series to help grow your hope.

Life in The Last Days: 2 Timothy 3

Wondering what the future holds? Most people do. At the beginning of 2 Timothy 3, Paul gives Timothy (and us) info on the last days, focusing less on “the what” and more on “the who.” But this isn’t just an “FYI” about the future; it’s a warning for us now. Join us for our 3 week series, “Life in The Last Days,”

starting November 8th, to learn more.

History Lessons: Psalms in Past Tense

"Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it." (Winston Churchill) Maybe history wasn’t you’re favorite subject in school.

Join us for our series, “History Lessons: Psalms in Past Tense” and see how learning from history can help you live more fully today.

Parable: Truth in Story

There’s something about a story that draws us in. When Jesus spoke, he told stories, or parables, to present his message. People easily related to these stories, as we do today. But Jesus’ parables aren't just entertaining stories—they revealed truth to the serious minded, yet at the same time, concealed truth from the indifferent listener. Join us for “Parable: Truth in Story” a series focusing on four parables from the Gospel of Luke, and come ready to be awakened to truth that can transform you.

“CREED: What We Believe.”

In an age of “whatever,” it’s easy to think it doesn’t really matter what you believe. But beliefs do matter, because what you believe will affect who you are and how you live. For four weeks we will make our home in the book of Romans, zeroing in on basic beliefs of the early church—the same teachings that are to be held by today’s church. Join us in the month of June for the message series,

Interior: Your Heart Condition

We work hard at “good appearances.” But how we look on the outside may not tell the story of what we’re like on the inside, and it’s the condition of the heart that really counts. Indeed, “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7) Join us for “Interior: Your Heart Condition” a message series about David (who God identifies as “a man after my own heart”) that is targeted at helping us assess and to change what is going on at the heart level.

“Restored” (Peter in Acts of the Apostles)

A fall can happen to any follower of Christ. It happened to Peter (whose name meant “rock”) when he denied any relationship with Jesus, not just once, but three times. At such moments, shame can almost steal any hope of recovery. But, as we see in the Book of Acts, Peter’s best days as a follower of Jesus were still ahead. Join us for “Restored,” a series meant to offer hope, but also a challenge.

This Book - This Year! with Pastor Mark Abernathy

Researchers George Gallup and Jim Castelli report, “Americans revere the Bible—but, by and large, they don't read it. And because they don't read it, they [we] have become a nation of Biblical illiterates.”

Join us for this 2 part series as we consider the uniqueness and the usefulness of Scripture. This series

goes along with our 2015 goal that we’re calling, “This Book–This Year,” which is the challenge of reading the Bible through in the coming year. Each week you will find the Scripture reading for that week on our website. Come along with us on this adventure…“This Book–This Year”!

Our series for Advent this year was “The Unbelievable.

A song by the same title, written by Steve and Vikki Cook, begins with the words:

Come and see the inconceivable

And believe the unbelievable

God has come to dwell with us

Bob Kauflin, commenting on this song, wrote, “We’re so familiar with nativities, carols, and the Christmas story, that we often lose the sense of awe, wonder, and amazement that the incarnation should produce in us. So we need to labor to be affected by what is truly inconceivable – God became a baby to redeem us from his judgment and to reconcile us to himself.”

Over the next four Sundays, we will aim to regain the sense of wonder Jesus’ coming should inspire in us. Come and join us as each Sunday we explore one of the themes of Advent:

Thank-Full with Pastor Mark Abernathy

THANK-FULL – Keeping Your “Thank Tank” on Full

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Colossians 2:6-7

Life can knock the thanks right out of us. But, as followers of Christ, it’s important that we don’t give up gratitude ground. In these two weeks we will learn about keeping our “thank tank” on full.
