Matthew 20:20-28 “Together We Serve”

When you hear the word serve what comes to your mind? Our modern definition reads: “To perform duties or services for another person!” But, as Christians, there’s a much deeper definition of serve that includes the heart and a willingness to give in service. Serving is more than giving time, energy, or talent in performing…

“Together We Go”

Watch the teaching here! Outreach is a manifestation of God’s love. As Christians, however, we tend to migrate only towards other Christians and isolate ourselves from the world. We hide ourselves away inside these four walls. And while, as we learned last week, the Christian community is a very important one, if we truly want…

Acts 2:1-47 “Together We Grow”

Click here to watch the teaching!  Acts 2:1-47 Togetherness is an attribute of God. We were made for relationship. First, with Him and then with each other, in marriage, and then in community with the church. It’s in community with the church that we are called together, equipped and anointed to do His work and…

John 12:31-36 “Step Into the Light”

John 12:31-36 Watch the teaching here! Darkness throughout the Bible is a symbol of evil, sin, and ignorance, while light throughout the Bible is a symbol of goodness, righteousness, and Jesus Himself! This is important because it illustrates two types of people in the world-those who walk in darkness and those who walk in the…

John 12:23-30 “Was That Thunder I Heard?”

John 12:23-30 Watch the teaching here! Life has its ups and downs, and when the downs inevitably come, there are really only two prayers we can lift up to God. “Rescue Me Lord”  or “Glorify Yourself, Lord!” Which brings us back to the illustration where rescue me relates to loving your life but glorify Yourself says…

John 12:9-22 “Get Out of the Way”

John 12:9-22 Watch the teaching here! The Gentiles were not concerned with the danger of being associated with Jesus, the damage to their reputation, the social cost, or even the threat of physical danger. “Sir, we wish to see Jesus!” The original text suggests they kept asking! They were not put off by fear, embarrassment,…

John 12:1-11 “Humble Yourself”

In comparing Mary and Judas, we see the stark contrast of light expressed through acts of love and devotion versus darkness revealed through evil deception!  Judas hid his motives for a long time even from the other disciples but was eventually exposed by his love of money, and it cost him everything. Even his life! While Mary…

John 11:47-57 “Get Over Yourself”

The leaders thought they were the ones in control, making the decision that Jesus had to die and from that moment plotted to murder Him! But God was in ultimate control (Acts 2:23-40)! Jesus retired to Ephraim to rest and wait with His disciples! They knew from past experience Jesus attended the feasts in Jerusalem, publicly taught…
