    Finding Purpose In Growing Together 2018
    Our identity as God's children is validated in the love we have for one another. This love should result in an environment that induces one another toward spiritual growth.

    We fulfill our purpose of becoming like Christ when we connect with God in a relationship of being loved and loving Him. However, this love is not relegated to a feeling. It is an active commitment to live his purpose.

    The Perfect Church 2018
    Series: (All)
    Big Idea:  Scripture tells us that the perfect church is a reality. Our definition of the perfect church has just been the problem. And since we have erred in defining what the perfect church is, we further err in determining those things that are really important to the life of the church.  This is what Paul has to say about the perfect church.

    More Than A Big Fish Story
    Series: (All)
    Big Idea:  When we tell the story of Jonah, we usually focus on the “big fish” story. However, the real story of Jonah is the story of a child of God who begrudges God’s mercy on those he considers to evil to be forgiven … so God teaches him a lesson about caring.

    The Kingdom Response
    As citizens of the kingdom, we have a journey to take (and a home to build). The way that we journey (and how we build) has everything to do with the destination which we will arrive at. What choices will you make on your journey, and how will you build?

    Judging Judgment
    "Don't judge me" is the mantra of our day. The appeal is even often directly connected to Jesus' plea of Matthew 7:1. However, Jesus wasn't saying that everyone has the right to determine what is right for them without others pointing out that they are wrong. Jesus' statement has to do with condemning others for their sin while ignoring the presence of our own sin.

    Show Offs Aren’t Spiritual
    Jesus speaks to the spiritual show-off within us, and says cut it out or you will be left out. In drawing this point out he gives us examples of spiritual show-offs in three areas, and prescribes the proper corrective for each. If we struggle with the desire to be applauded for our spirituality, he gives us steps to deal with that desire.
