PREVIOUS SERMON SERIES

We welcome you to catch up on earlier sermon series, or to explore what we teach each weekend.  


SERMON SERIES: OVERFLOWING

While we have seen the danger of over-flowing rivers this fall, the word overflow is often a positive in scripture.  In Psalm 23, “my cup overflows” is a sign of God’s abundance.  In Psalm 65, “The wagon track overflows with richness”.  God’s blessings aren’t just bottom of the barrel scrape by—they overflow in our lives.  And if we don’t pause to acknowledge that, we miss it.  And God promises an on-going overflow when we acknowledge it (Mal. 3).  In the New Testament Paul loves this word as well, and he uses it twice when calling the people of Corinth to generosity.  “abundant joy and extreme poverty overflowed in generosity”…that isn’t an equation that makes sense to us, but in God’s economy it does.  And in 2 Cor. 9, our generosity “overflows in thanksgiving to God.”  Overflow signifies the abundance of God’s blessing in our lives and reminds us to let that lead us to overflow in our response to God.

SERMON SERIES: REAL COMMUNITY, REAL CONTENTMENT

We live in a fast paced world that pulls us in many directions at the same time.  Two things can be challenging to find—real community and real contentment.  Our technology saturated world can help us and hurt us as we seek real versions of each of these.  Scripture has guidance for us as we seek the real from the fake, the meaningful from the trivial.

SERMON SERIES: GROWING IN THE SON

There is no better way to grow as a Christian than to engage with the Bible.  Every study has shown that real spiritual growth comes when we plant ourselves in God’s Word—it is rich soil for growth.  So we will continue this summer to memorize these key 14 wonderful scriptures, and unpack them together using other parts of the Bible to make them more real.  Let’s keep growing!
