1st Timothy – Part 6 – Shipwrecked or Smooth Sailing – How Elders Protect Us – June 25, 2017

Share with Friends… SERMON SUMMARY For many people, a vacation aboard a sailboat, tucked away in some quiet cove, is a dream come true. But cruises don’t always have storybook endings.

Jesus is Gone: What’s Next? – Part 1 of 2 – Resetting Expectations of the Church – April 30, 2017

Share with Friends… SERMON SUMMARY 1. Our lives are shaped by our expectations. Shaped by the Old Testament, the disciples expected God quickly to bring in a physical, national kingdom of Israel with a victorious, messianic ruler who would squash all Gentile opposition. The disciples expected and wanted one thing, but Jesus had something else […]
