In a 24/7 culture, how do we find rest, and reclaim our lives from busyness? Enter in the Sabbath. The Sabbath, or a weekly day set aside for worship and rest, is an essential part of the Christian life that is increasingly difficult to observe in our 24/7 culture. To help us better understand this important practice, Pastor Adam explores Hebrews 4:1-11, which reminds us why we are called to keep the Sabbath in the first place.
What is the purpose of worship? In this first week of a four-week series on worship, Pastor Adam discusses Isaiah 6:1-8, which helps us gain a deeper understanding of what worship is, and why it is vitally important to both our personal lives, and our life together as a church.
What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? In week two of this sermon series on The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), we continue by looking at Jesus’ statement, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” To help us understand what a disciple is, Pastor Adam looks at Jesus’ call to Peter and Andrew in Matthew 4:19, which teaches us that we must first connect WITH Jesus before we can connect people TO Jesus.
Who calls the shots on your life? In week one of this sermon series on The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), Pastor Adam begins by looking at Jesus’ statement, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” What does it look like to live into that reality in our own lives? Pastor Adam turns to Philippians 2:1-11 to help us find out.
Where do you find your strength? In your job? Your finances? Your health? Or somewhere else? On this Pentecost Sunday, Pastor Adam preaches on Acts 2:1-21, which teaches us where true strength is found.
Do you ever struggle with feelings of futility? Purposelessness? Meaninglessness? In your job? Your relationships? Your finances? Pastor Adam talks about John 21:1-14, which teaches us that when Jesus shows up, he shows up futility. Where do you need Jesus to show up futility in your own life?
Have you ever been afraid of what others might think of you because of your faith? Pastor Adam talks about how Jesus showed up this fear with his disciples in John 20:19-23.
Through this six-week Lenten sermon series, Pastor Adam traces the theme of covenant throughout the Bible to better understand the work of Jesus on the cross, and the new covenant established in his blood. In this first week of the series, we discuss the first covenant we find in Scripture: God’s covenant with humanity in the Garden of Eden.
In this second week of a series called I Choose, Pastor Adam talks about the choice between surrender and control, looking at James 4:13-17. It’s tempting to think we know what is best for our lives, but when we live like we are in control, we are ignoring the One who truly is.
Who we are today is a net result of the choices we have made, both big and small. In this four-week series called “I Choose,” Pastor Adam discusses some of the larger choices we make, often times without even realizing it, that shape who we are at a core level. This week, Pastor Adam talks about making a choice between purpose and prosperity, looking at the example of Moses in Hebrews 11.
