This Sunday was a party as we celebrated with a Baptism Bash and Baby Dedication! During our 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services 116 people publicly declared their decision to follow Jesus, and were baptized. Multiple families also dedicated their babies, and promised to raise their sweet little ones in a God-honoring way. Celebrating the new life we find in Jesus will never get old!
This week Jimmy shared a message on repentance, the obedience of water baptism and the power of the Holy Spirit. When we repent, we are acknowledging our need for a Savior. After we give our life to Jesus, the next act of obedience is water baptism. Water baptism is a public declaration of our faith and a celebration of the glory of God. When we give our life to Jesus, we also receive the Holy Spirit. When we are daily walking out in the Holy Spirit, we have authority to help the people around us.
This Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus.
This week we took a look at Jesus’ triumphal entry, and saw how the presence of Jesus shifted something in each of the people that welcomed Him that day. Still today, when the presence of Jesus is evident we are changed, and our response is worship. Throughout the week leading up to Easter, we are engaging in 7 days of extravagant worship. For daily worship devotionals, check out our blog.
This week we kicked off our new series, The Culture of Heaven: A Biblical Perspective on Diversity. Jimmy Seibert and Vincent Carpenter shared on the beauty of God displayed through diversity. We, as the Church, should be the model for what diversity looks like in our society. When we come together, we see the Kingdom of Heaven come to earth.
This week Jimmy wrapped up our series, Jesus, Teach Us to Pray, with a message on praying confidently and effectively. God is good and always has our best interest at hand. Because we know His character as a good Father, we can pray confidently and expectantly.
This week we continued our series, Jesus, Teach Us to Pray, with a message about persistence in prayer. In Luke 11, Jesus invites us to ask, seek Him and knock. God wants us to ask, so we are invited to freely contend for things with Him.
This week we continued our Jesus, Teach Us To Pray series. Throughout this series, we want to pause and learn how to pray in the way Jesus did. We went through the second half of the Lord’s Prayer this week and talked about how we can intentionally be praying throughout our week.
This week Jimmy kicked off our new series, “Jesus, teach us to pray.” Throughout this series, we want to go back to the basics and learn how to pray in the way Jesus did. When we pray, we see our world transformed and lives healed. Today we took a look at Matthew 6:9-13, and began to break down the Lord’s Prayer.
This week, Jimmy shared the heart behind our vision for this year. Our banner statement for 2017 is, “Jesus, teach us to pray.” When we lay a foundation of prayer, we set ourselves up to see God move. On January 15th, we will be kicking off a new sermon series that will take us deeper in to how to pray.
