Finding Strength in Difficult Times

Finding Strength in Difficult Times

Fires, floods, hurricanes, global terrorism threats, rumblings of nuclear war, famines, solar eclipses, deep wounds and divisions, forced migrations, threats of deportation...  It's been quite a summer!  Not to mention the many battles, storms and personal struggles we each face.  In this encouraging message, Pastor Billy Calderwood shares the good news that God has the last word in history and that even though life (may) get harder before it gets easier, God will Renew, Empower and Strengthen You No Matter What the Future Holds!

Reclaim the table

Reclaim the table

Three sentences in the New Testament begin with the phrase, “The Son of Man came…”  Two of these sentences remind us of Jesus mission and one teaches us a key method.  Luke 7:34 states, “The Son of Man has come eating and drinking.”  Have you considered your table as a sacred place to build relationship, share the hope of the Gospel and make disciples?  Perhaps it’s time.

We Are It

We Are It

We can no longer allow our prior situations or our present circumstances keep us from the eternal purpose God intended for each and every one of us. We are what makes life on this planet make sense. The world is searching for an answer. Jesus is that answer and we are the response they need. Our lives are the good work God wants to do. That is what reflects our Creator. That is our intended purpose. You and I, we are it.

Living An Abundant Life!

Living An Abundant Life!

Are we settling for less? God didn’t promise a life without hardship. However, God invites us to an abundant internal life in light of any circumstance. He provides the guidance and the gifts, it’s our choice to access them. This message will identify four pathways that lead to a life exceedingly abundant. May we settle for more and live the abundant life we are offered.

Learning To Trust God!

Learning To Trust God!

We live in the tension between trust and control. Navigating how to live with an open hand before God instead of a closed fist can be one of the more difficult lessons to learn. Considering Daniel’s journey with God, not only can we learn what it means to trust God, but as a result we can actually experience His power and presence in our lives.

We Must Decide!

We Must Decide!

Jesus invites us to come to him for real hope, real rest, and ultimately the freedom that can only come through Him. And when Jesus sets you free you are free indeed. Jesus didn't dismiss or simply pass by the man that was possessed by demons, but actually did the extraordinary and restored him. In this sermon, Pastors, Walter & Marysol Ramos encouraged us to fully surrender to God's plan of redemption in our life and in the life of people around us. 

The Right Kind of Full!

The Right Kind of Full!

Have you ever been really FULL and then tried to fit more in? When it comes to our relationship with God, oftentimes we seek Him to find our true food, but on the way we get FULL with life’s filler. Then we don’t have any space or desire for the really good stuff that God calls us to be full with. This fullness of life that Jesus promised and has freely provided is actually meant to serve as His compelling invitation for others to come close to Him. In this encouraging message and learn the practical steps toward the big picture on how to live a full life that truly compels and draws others near toward God in all His goodness!

Life-Giving Attitudes

Life-Giving Attitudes

We all face hardships and struggles and wonder why God would allow such things to happen. When we experience them we can either live in response to our circumstances or live in hopeful expectation of what God will do through them. In this message Dr. Dennis Easter explores the difference in the attitudes of circumstantial happiness and the gift of joy that is from the Lord.

Sigh

Sigh

God knows and hears us in our most desperate moments. He is present with us as we experience sighs of both relief and regret.  In this message we hear from Dr. Dennis Easter who guides us through the psalmists relatable cries for help.  In those times where a sigh is all we can manage we learn that God receives that sigh as His Holy Spirit prays for us in perfect alignment with His will.

Where Can I Go?

Where Can I Go?

In this message Pastor Arman reminds us where to go at the hardest of the times.Psalm 32:7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble  and surround me with sings of deliverance. Godly men in the Bible faced hard times too, they fled. As an example he speaks about King David who fled to Samuel which symbolizes God's presence. Even Jesus had times when people wanted to kill him, He went to Jordan where He had been baptized and saw the heavens open FOR HIM  and  God saying "You are my Son , I am well pleased with you."

Obedience

Obedience

Nothing will transform your life more than act of obedience towards the Lord. Throughout our lives we have those moments and opportunities where the Lord will ask us to go, or stop. When we live in obedience to the Lord's voice in our lives, we can experience a piece that transcends understanding.
