Cynicism and negativity may be the easy choice, but they're not the best choice. If you seek what’s good, you’ll see what's good. Join us over the next several weeks as we embrace the way we were created to think and Stay Positive. We pray that as you listen you will be equipped & encouraged to look for the good in spite of the negativity around you.
We are created to be in family and when we do not feel connected we ask questions like, ”Who am I?” “Where do I come from?” “Where do I belong?” In the 2nd feature sermon of our summer blockbuster series, "At The Movies," we take a look at the movie Lion and how Saroo, like many of us, wrestled with these questions. We pray that as you listen the Lord will make you fully aware of who you are to Him and where you belong!
We kicked off our blockbuster series, “At The Movies” with “Courageous.” There are many things trying to pull us away from our Biblical convictions. To have the ability to stand for what we believe takes courage. Listen as we take a look at the true story of Private Doss in the movie Hacksaw Ridge, a man who had the courage to stand against the critics of his convictions. We pray that as you listen your courage is strengthened to take a stand. Don’t miss this blockbuster message!
In the conclusion of our series, we take a look at one final characteristic of David that made him a man After God’s Heart. David had many reasons to talk negatively about King Saul and even kill him when given the opportunity. In 1 Samuel 24 we are shown that David chose not to do either. He knew that the words of a man or woman after God’s heart are a matter of life and death. Listen to find out 3 ways our tongues can go wild and how to tame them. We pray that as you listen your heart and words transformed to be those of a man or woman after God’s heart.
A man or woman after God’s heart is Kingdom-minded. They see their time, treasures and talents as valuable tools to advance God’s purposes. In part 8 of our series, After God’s Heart, we take a look at Dave the Builder and 3 things he did and why he did them. We pray that as you listen your heart is open beyond the frame of your life and you see bigger & wider for the glory of God.
Last week we learned sometimes we have to say Amen All By Ourselves. But that is not the way it should always be. God made us to be in relationship with others. We need Ride or Die friendships. These are the people that will stick by you through thick & thin, encourage & correct you and brag on your strengths & defend your weaknesses. Listen as we take a look at David’s Ride or Die friendship with Jonathan and learn exactly what a Ride or Die friendship is. We pray that as you listen you’re encouraged to be this friend and that these relationships will increase in your life as well.
In part 6 of our series, After God’s Heart, we take a look at the absolute worst day of David’s life. After running & hiding from King Saul for many years David & his men were tired. One day upon returning home from a normal day’s assignment, they find their homes burned to the ground, their families gone and everything they owned stolen. Out of sadness, anger & weariness, the men turned on David and wanted to stone him. How did David respond? How should we respond when we grow weary waiting and the ground beneath us seems to be giving in? We pray that as you listen you are encouraged to respond as David did.
This week we took a look at the most epic battle in the Old Testament, the battle between Goliath & the Giant or as you know it David & Goliath. The battlefield may have had 2 armies on it but the battle was between two men, David, an inexperienced young man and Goliath, a 9-foot experienced warrior. David’s faith & confidence in the Lord made him a giant, giving him the strength to stand & fight Goliath. We pray that as you listen to this epic battle you see yourself as David and your faith & confidence is strengthen to face & defeat the giants in your life.
In part 4 of our series, After God’s Heart, Pastor Hector challenges us to build a spiritual fire in our homes. As the leaders of our homes it is our job to set the spiritual temperature. When others are around you they should feel the warmth of God. How do we build a spiritual fire? How do we restart a flame that has gone out? Listen as we take a look at how King David, a man after God’s heart, brought the fire back to the House of Israel. We pray that as you listen God’s fire is fanned within you.
