Today we wrapped up our Open Handed series by talking about giving generously. Giving unleashes a joy that sets us free and brings breakthrough for others. There are four main reasons we give: We give for love; we give for joy; we give for sacrifice; and we give because we are storing up treasures in heaven.
This week we continued our Open Handed series with a message on working diligently. God intended for work to be done with Him. Work shouldn’t be something that we dread, it should be a place of joy because it is a place of partnership with God.
This week Jimmy kicked off our new series, Open Handed. Throughout the month, we will be diving into what it looks like to live simply, work diligently and give generously. Today we focused on how we can live simply and trust God for our provisio
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.
