Brian continues our series talking about the life of Moses and connecting passages from Exodus 19 and 1 Peter 2 to help us better understand our place as special and set aside by God.
When it comes down to it, we don’t like being tested all that much. The inconvenience, the difficult decisions. Difficulties really show us whats going on inside us! In Exodus we see God testing his own people to help them see where their hearts were, and to help them trust him more. We too, little by little, can learn to trust God and depend on him. Not only in times of crisis, but daily coming to him for all our needs.
A person’s journey of life and leadership doesn’t actually begin with them. Instead, there are a number of key factors that set the context for who we become. Brian kicks off our new sermon series by exploring the beginnings of Moses’ life – highlighting how God is always at work, even in the midst of the hardest of experiences.
God intends for every Christian to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. And while not everyone may agree on what exactly happens at that moment, it is clear that an overwhelming, empowering experience of God’s presence is part of the gift-package God has for every Christian. In this message, Brian offers some insights about the baptism of the Holy Spirit and points us towards how we can have a deeper experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit today.
In this weekend’s message, Brian explores ways that experiencing God’s love helps us embrace our true identity. As we become more secure in our identity as children of God, it frees us to take bold practical steps to become more like Jesus.
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Brian starts our new series on generosity by helping us learn what the Bible has to say about money and its role in our lives.
As we explore Jesus’ words in the parable of the talents, Brian encourages us to consider the implications of this parable to our work. What has God entrusted to you in your vocation? What does it look like to be faithful with what God has entrusted to you? Matthew 25:14-30
What is normal for us to experience as followers of Jesus? In this weekend’s message from Acts 18, Brian highlights five key items that were normal for 1st century Christians and outlines how we can live into those realities in our own journey of following Jesus today.
It takes real courage to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading. In this message, Brain examines a few ways that the early disciples chose courage – pointing us to how that can help us grow as a Holy Spirit-led community, as well as ways we can learn to have courage in other areas of our lives.
