Angel Encounters

What do we know about angels? Are they roaming among us today? The angels were busy leading up to, during, and even after the birth of Christ.  Angels appear to always come with a message, usually meant for one person or a specific group of people.  In this Advent series, our focus will be on looking at the message and meaning of these angelic encounters we find especially in the Christmas narrative found in the gospels.  Is there a message for God’s people to hear this Advent as well? May the Holy Spirit help us to be “angels aware” and to hear their message as one we might need to hear today.

The Acts

The author of the book of Acts is the historian Luke, who was inspired by the Holy Spirit to recount not only the accurate details of Jesus’ life in the gospel of Luke but also the historical account of the birth of the Church in the book of Acts.  The book of Acts is sometimes thought to be named so because it is the “acts” of the Apostles or the acts of the early church.

Ash Wednesday 2022

As we kick off the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday, we symbolically mark our foreheads with ashes in the shape of a cross. The ashes remind us of our brokenness and sin before God - that without Christ we are merely “ashes to ashes and dust to dust.” The cross symbolically reminds us of the promises of God’s forgiveness received as a result of the sacrifice He paid on the cross.

The Gospels - Luke John

Has anyone been wondering, “What is God up to these days?” The volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and confusion seem to be only growing all around us. Could God be trying to tell us something? Is there a message that could potentially give us some understanding, clarity, and hope? Jesus’ words in John 15 might just be the very message many of us need to hear. The Lord, the God who cares and loves His people, is glorified when His children are fruit producers. How does the Father lead a Christian to produce more fruit in their lives? May the Holy Spirit open our ears to hear Jesus’ answer.

All I want for Christmas

What do you want for Christmas? Depending on the season of life, people can answer this question very differently. Now, what about this question... “What do you NEED for Christmas?” Different answer probably. Our wants are often very different from our needs. Wants can actually even blind us to our true needs. What we actually need is God’s presence made manifest in our lives... bringing peace, hope, healing, and direction. This Advent, as we look forward to celebrating Christmas, we are asking God to faithfully align our wants and our needs. So join us on the Sundays in Advent for our next message series, All I want for Christmas. What do you want for Christmas?

Firsts

Throughout the Scriptures, we see the principle of “Firsts”. In this series, we are challenged to search our hearts to discern that really holds first place.
