Walls are everywhere . . . walls that separate "us" (people who look like me, talk like me, act like me) from "them" (those people who don't look or talk or act like me). Walls create divisions in homes, churches, and society. There is only one force powerful enough to break through these walls: the love of Christ. In this series we will invite God to form us into boundary-breaking people.
In the routine of daily living, we rarely take time to think about the story our lives are telling. At your funeral what do you hope people will say about you? Right now we are all in the process of writing our own epitaph. God wants to leave a powerful legacy through your life that will impact the people around you and the generations coming after you. Join us for our vital January sermon series "Legacy -- Will You Outlive Your Life?"
As the new year begins, we find ourselves thinking about areas that we would like to see change in our lives. God has promised that "there is a time for every purpose under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1). How can we make the most of the time he will give us in 2018? Pastor Dennis unpacks some wise guidance from Ephesians chapter 5.
What are you longing for this Christmas? A special gift? Special times with family? Some peace and quiet? Imagine what it was like for God's people to wait hundreds of years for the first Christmas -- the night of their Messiah's arrival. They were desperate for him to come and set their lives and the world right. The haunting hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" captures this longing. During the 4 Sundays of Advent, Pastor Dennis will unpack this powerful hymn and show us how the Christ of Christmas can meet the deepest longings of our lives. Join us on our journey to the manger.
More and more people are seeking the services of a life coach to help them find personal success and fulfillment. But the One who knows us best is here, not to help us achieve our goals, but to lead us into the life we long for but never thought we could have. During our fall sermon series Pastor Dennis will preach from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Let's come sit at Jesus' feet and learn life from him.
The subject of human sexuality has never been more controversial and polarizing, even (especially?) in the Church of Jesus. At our denomination’s recent global gathering, a statement of Human Sexuality was adopted that seeks to be both Biblically faithful and graciously compassionate. Pastor Dennis King will seek to unpack our position on this vital issue in this 3 part sermon series “Holy Sex”.
Being a Christian is much more than believing a creed or attending services. It's living all your life in companionship with God. But that's easier said than done. How do we walk with God with all of our inadequacies, struggles, and doubts? We can learn a lot by tracking the life of David, a flawed human being who God formed into "a man after his own heart." Listen to this life changing series called "GodFormed -- Doing Life with David."
Most people have a vague belief in life after death, but what will that life be like? Why did Jesus say that those who believe in him "will never taste death"? Where are our deceased loved ones right now? Listen to this inspiring and insightful sermon duo.
What a difference a day makes! People say that phrase all the time. No day has ever made a greater difference than the last day of Jesus' life. In Pastor Dennis' sermon series, we will retrace the events that changed the course of human history, from his last supper with his disciples to his death on the Cross. Whether you are a long-time believer or simply curious about this story at the heart of the Christian faith, you are invited to join us on a journey that will change your life.
