Word of God

Word of God

Pastor Peter spoke to us this morning about the Word of God. Like so many things that have to do with Jesus, the Word of God is larger and more and greater and better than we tend to think about it. The Word of God is often thought of as merely the Bible. We don’t […]

Blessings in the Peacemakers/Persecuted

There are 112 references to blessing in the New Testament and none of them have to do with material things. It was with that understanding that Pastor Peter began recapping and finishing the sermon series #blessed? Blessing is God extending favor to us. Download Study Guide (PDF)

Joy Comes From Worship

Joy Comes From Worship

Pastor Peter took us to the Old Testament on Sunday morning to show us how joy and worship are linked. The people of God and their pattern of worship make it possible to understand joy. We don’t live under the same guidelines in terms of worship, but we can learn a lot from looking at […]

Rich & the Kingdom

Rich & the Kingdom

What matters the most to you?  That is the question that we are going to be dealing with today.  Last week we talked about the fact that we think we want fairness.  The reality is that none of us wants fairness.  If we got what we deserved, none of us would like what we get. […]

Worship #2

Worship #2

This Sunday was arranged very differently.  Pastor Peter asked some different people to name a song that speaks specifically to their heart.  We started with kids and moved to some adults.  As you can imagine, the responses were as varied as the number of people who were asked.

2 Thess 2

2 Thess 2

This is a section of scripture that’s difficult to understand, and it’s easy to get bogged down in some of the language. Paul talks about the “man of lawlessness” and people being lost in their separation from God and their inability to recognize the truth. Where do we find the Gospel in this? The Gospel […]

Chapter 5:1-11

Chapter 5:1-11

Paul, the converted legalist, once a persecutor, now among the persecuted, blinded so he could see, and fully convinced that Jesus is the Messiah, continues to instruct the church in Thessalonica about “the final days” – the second coming of Jesus. The church there was beginning to worry because Jesus hadn’t returned as soon as […]
