What Are You Looking At?

The lame man by the Beautiful Gate in Acts 3 thought he knew exactly what he needed. He had no idea that the power of the name of Jesus would change his life forever that day. We should refocus on Him every day instead of looking for fulfillment in the wrong places.
 



New Beginnings

On a night set aside to celebrate our High School seniors, John Marble encourages us to think of graduation and the day we are baptized as a new beginning. Both milestones are a time for us to begin building upon the foundations that have been laid for us.
 



Devoted

At the end of Acts 2 we find one of the best descriptions of what the church was like in the New Testament. In a word, they were devoted. If we devoted ourselves to the things they were devoted to, our world will see Jesus in us.
 



Pursuing Peace

Romans 14 teaches us how to get along when we have differences of opinion. One of the great challenges of conflict is trying to get the root of the problem rather than focusing on the personalities involved. This week we unpack some practical ideas of how to solve the people problem while pursuing peace.
 



Women In Acts

Women play a significant role as followers of Jesus throughout the book of Acts.  This Mother’s Day we talk about Tabitha, Mary (mother of John Mark), Rhoda and Priscilla; and we learn how having some of their characteristics can help us in our walk with God.
 



Passing Judgment

This week we continue looking at Romans 14 and how to handle disagreement. One of the difficulties in handling disagreement is our tendency to assume the motives of others. Scripture tells us that only God knows those motives, and He alone is our judge.
 



Cut to the Heart

In Acts 2, the Holy Spirit empowers the apostles to communicate people from all over the world who have come to Jerusalem. When the crowd hears the story of Jesus they are cut to the heart, and their lives are forever changed.

The God Who Forgives

We live in a world that seems to be increasingly divided and unwilling to forgive and work together for the good of all. However, that is not the God of mercy that we serve. Through the sacrifice of Christ God has wiped out the insurmountable debt we owed and given us renewed hope in Christ. Then, he calls on us to follow his example and share that same gift of forgiveness with others. David Dirrim, our Education, Involvement & Missions Minister, brings this lesson.
 



A New Mission

This week we begin a new series about the book of Acts. In chapter 1, the Apostles are given a new mission: to be witnesses of Jesus. It is a mission that we continue today. Each of us should be ready to tell His story.
 



Encountering Jesus After the Resurrection

Our series on the Gospel of Luke concludes with the lesson from Luke 24. As people encounter the resurrected savior, we can learn some important things about who He is and who we can be.
