At Home with God and Each Other

Worship gatherings create a unique time to connect with God. Through traditional and contemporary music, prayers, Bible readings, and a relevant message we experience God.

We celebrate our life in God with order and spontaneity in a style that has form but isn’t formal. There may even be times of laughter. We may shed a tear. Exactly what your wear isn’t important – being there is what matters.

 

Our Current Message Series

 

Church on Mission

How did a handful of uneducated, poor Jewish men become world-wide change agents?  From it’s very beginning, the church was empowered by the Holy Spirit with the truth and message that changed ordinary people into missionaries that converted billions of people all over the world from spiritual death to life.  Let’s follow the story of the early church and discover how it all happened.

 

May 27:  Empowered
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 1 & 2

Acts 2-4

When the Holy Spirt was poured out on the day of Pentecost, it wasn’t business as usual.  Everyone knew something powerful was happening.  It wasn’t clear at first, but soon became evident that this power is personal and purposeful.   How might this power be personal to you?  And what purpose does it serve?

 
June 3: Truth
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 3 & 4

Acts 4:32-5:11;  Acts 6:8-15; Acts 7:44-60

In today’s world, truth, if it exists at all, is often thought of as relative.  What’s true for you may not be for me.  Your truth may not be my truth.  Scripture and the early church offer an alternative.  There’s such a thing as objective truth – and it matters.  It matters so much in fact, that it was a matter of life and death.  We may want to give some consideration to God’s truth. 

 

June 10:  Message
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 5 & 6

Acts 8:26-40; Acts 10:1-48

The powerful truth about Jesus revealed by the Holy Spirit became the message of the church – the gospel.  Both those who brought the message, and those who received it experienced life giving and sometimes miraculous power.  This gospel was so powerful it broke down previously long-stand barriers creating surprising unity among very different people.  Is the Church’s message still compelling and powerful today? 

 

June 17:  Missionaries
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 7 & 8

Acts 9:1-25; Acts 14:8-28

God can, and often does, calls the least likely candidate for His purposes.  Paul was certainly the most unlikely missionary candidate imaginable.  Not only is the gospel powerful enough to save sinners, it can turn them into Christ’s missionaries.   If it happened to an enemy of Christ, what about us? 

 

June 24:  Converts
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 9 & 10

Acts 15:1-35; Acts 16:11-34

Faith in the powerful message of the gospel often leads to significant change.  That’s why new believers are called “converts”.  But who’s eligible to be converted?  Is it just certain religious people?  And what are they converting to?  Is it a moral code that must be followed, or is it something more?   This important question came up early in the Church’s history.  It’s still an important question today.   

 

July 1:  World
Gospel Project Volume 10, Sessions 11 & 12

Acts 17:16-34; Acts 18:1-4; 24-38

If you’re willing to receive the call of “missionary”, it’s important to understand the world you’re sent to.  The ancient world of the early church isn’t that much different than today.  It was a world that worshipped many idols, had a competing world-view, and wasn’t always receptive to the gospel.  Still, early church believers left a legacy of faith in Christ that changed the world. How did they do it?   How about us?
