Are you ready to invest your life in what matters most? Many things that seem important and valuable today will prove to be passing and temporary. Will you be all in for what matters most? If so, you will discover that God’s purposes for your life will REQUIRE his presence and power! That when you are at the end of yourself, God is just beginning!

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!
Jesus came to serve, not be served. In Mark 10, Jesus redefines greatness within the framework of service. If we are to adopt a lifestyle defined by service, then we must look inside of us and recognize that we have something to contribute to the world.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 feeding of the five thousand is a real-life story that reminds us of the love, power and availability of God to us, His people. It’s a story of invitation, unity and participation in the mission and heart of God. Although there was little given, the offering in faith was multiplied through the disciple's hands.
