The Kingdom of Service

Tuesday 9th August 2022

Jesus came to this earth to serve, not to be served – and he invites us as Christians to live a life of service. How do you really feel about being a servant of the Lord?

I Make All Things New

Monday 8th August 2022

Come together with us as we pray for those in religious bondage. Worship God with us, worship our Savior who transforms all things, especially human hearts.

What Is God Looking For?

Friday 5th August 2022

David was not among the final contestants for the prophet Samuel’s American Idol-like judging for the new king of Israel. What God is actually looking for surprised everyone then — and it still does.

What Will it Be – Raisin Cakes or God?

Thursday 4th August 2022

Greg preaches from the book of Hosea about the greatest love story of all. Come prepared to know and experience the profound dimensions of God’s amazing love. It’s a story about real people. It’s a story about you and me.

What Really Matters?

Wednesday 3rd August 2022

Greg asks, “Have you ever tried to get sin out of your life? How did that work out for you?”  We focus on “What Really Matters”.

The Law Came Through Moses — Grace and Truth Came Through Jesus Christ

Tuesday 2nd August 2022

There are two ways to relate to God. When God sent us the law, he sent it through Moses. When he brought us grace, he delivered it himself, in the person of Jesus.

The Ministry of Death — or The Ministry of Life?

Monday 1st August 2022

God speaks to us, through Paul, in 2 Corinthians 3:6-8. We have a choice: dead religion — formulaic, the same-old, menu-driven spiritual rituals and ceremonies— or — dynamic, exuberant relational life in Christ? Which will it be?

A Storm, a Ship and a Harbor

Friday 29th July 2022

Come with us on a journey — a storm, a ship that encounters the storm and the harbor that awaits the end of a turbulent voyage. It’s all about your relationship with God.

The Safety of Religion — OR The Risk of Relationship?

Thursday 28th July 2022

Are you settling for religious bondage when you could have freedom in Christ? Are you choosing the mirage of safety in religion — or are you accepting Jesus, and the risk, as we humans might see it, of relationship with God?

The Gift of Time

Wednesday 27th July 2022

In Jesus God embraced time, becoming one of us, in our time. Jesus will help each of us to tell time, to understand time, to use time, and to see beyond time.

Love Is Something We Do

Tuesday 26th July 2022

As humans we learn to love by being loved — as Christians we are able to love others because God has first loved us. If we have not accepted God’s love, then we can do and do and do — and we will still never produce God’s love.

Finding Your Way Home

Monday 25th July 2022

Home Jesus promises us an eternal home, but we can’t get there without him. We need directions. We can even be on the right road, but going in the opposite direction! The road to being at home starts at the foot of the cross.

Renewal for the Weary

Friday 22nd July 2022

The Bible tells us God not only created the universe, he manages and maintains it with what we would describe as effortless ease. But many of us find ourselves perpetually tired. We are reminded we can exchange our weakness for God’s eternal strength.

Forgiven of Things You Can’t Forget

Thursday 21st July 2022

The woman on the phone couldn’t forgive herself of a secret — something she had done many decades before — she was sure God would never forgive her. Today we ask God to join us in our secret places, where skeletons of our past hound us.

The Gift of God

Wednesday 20th July 2022

God doesn’t want us to walk far behind him in fear, nor does he want us to grovel at his feet. God wants us to be in close and intimate relationship with him.

Death – A New Beginning

Tuesday 19th July 2022

Greg notes the one letter difference between the words “grave” and “grace” — a reminder to us that God’s grace transforms the “final” resting place of our body from decay and defeat into victorious, eternal life.

Aging Grace-Fully

Monday 18th July 2022

Aging grace-fully means walking more by faith than by sight. Aging grace-fully can mean that we realize that we cannot do all that needs to be done via our own strength.

It’s All About Grace

Friday 15th July 2022

Greg concludes, in this final sermon of his three-part series on God’s grace, that we either trust in what Jesus has done, is doing, or will do — or we trust in what we have done, are doing, and will do. We must make a choice — it cannot be both.

Grace Alone

Thursday 14th July 2022

We are justified by a righteousness apart from the law. We struggle with God’s grace because humanly we can’t comprehend why God favors us with his grace. He has nothing to gain — he has no apparent motive. It’s all about faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone.

In Need of Grace

Wednesday 13th July 2022

In this first of a three-part series on grace Greg talks about two men named Paul. Today, Greg explains how one of his favorite movies (Cool Hand Luke) and one of his favorite actors (Paul Newman) illustrates our need of God’s amazing grace.

Science and Faith — Why Can’t We Just Get Along?

Tuesday 12th July 2022

When it’s a new school year, it’s a great time to be reminded that our God of faith and salvation is also our Great Educator and our Great Scientist.

One God

Monday 11th July 2022

There are many gods that compete for our attention and our allegiance, but only one true God. He is one, yet Father, Son and Holy Spirit. By his grace you can know him, be united and connected with him, and have a personal relationship with him.

Listening to God

Friday 8th July 2022

Listening to God involves trust and faith. It is far more than dictating our wants and desires. Prayer is more than us talking to God — it is talking with God — asking Him to change us and tell us what He wants us to do.

Two Brothers

Thursday 7th July 2022

Whether it’s the two brothers of Luke 15 or the two brothers of A River Runs Through It “Two Brothers” will help you consider God’s infinite love, and the special relationship he offers to you.

The Lost and the Found

Wednesday 6th July 2022

The gospel often turns our expectations upside down — so that those who think they are religious found — who think they have it made — may actually be lost. And those who think that God has given up on them — there just might be hope.

God Or Country?

Tuesday 5th July 2022

Which kingdom truly encourages and enables us to love our neighbors as ourselves — kingdoms of our world or the kingdom of heaven?

Always Obey Governing Authorities?

Monday 4th July 2022

Since Christ-followers hold dual citizenship, what happens when civil authorities seem to cross the line, imposing or demanding un-Christ like action?

Friday 1st July 2022

When Jesus was asked a trick question, he responded with timeless wisdom about the nature of the kingdom of heaven and the kingdoms of this world.

Whose Side is God On?

Thursday 30th June 2022

Is there any place in the kingdom of heaven for human partisanship and sectarianism? Join us for fresh insights about our citizenship in the kingdom of heaven.

A Different Gospel

Wednesday 29th June 2022

Are you hearing the “real thing”? There’s only one gospel of Jesus Christ. All other gospels are pretenders and imposters. As Paul says, “a different gospel … is really no gospel at all” (Galatians 1:6-7).

Hijacking Christianity

Tuesday 28th June 2022

Religious legalism may seem to have the same external signs as authentic Christianity, but it’s going a different direction. A hijacked plane still has all of the external signage outside that identifies it as an airline with a commendable mission — but internally, a different mission is being planned. There is more to real Christianity than meets the eye.

Prayer — Experiencing God

Monday 27th June 2022

Christendom is filled with talk of “prayers that work.” But what about prayers that don’t “work”? Is there more to prayer than convincing God to give you what you want?

What’s Love Got to Do With It?

Friday 24th June 2022

God’s love is so much more than the popular definition of love that often leads to roller-coaster-ride like relationships that rely solely on infatuation and sexual attraction. Worship with us as we reflect on the love of Christ — a love that loves us into loving.

Jesus — And Now — Someone Completely Different

Thursday 23rd June 2022

During his earthly ministry Jesus was not what anyone expected. More than that, the risen Lord who is ever present with us continues to turn our human expectations upside down.

Jesus Is Looking For You

Wednesday 22nd June 2022

Consider the lengths to which Jesus goes as he looks for each and every one of us. Give glory to God who brings Light into the dark places of our lives.

“But Even If He Does Not…”

Tuesday 21st June 2022

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego — it’s a revered story we all know — but what is the real moral of this story we read in the book of Daniel?

The Enemy of Faith

Monday 20th June 2022

Jesus does not promise to keep us from the storms of life, but he will endure them with us and never forsake us. We have an enemy during the storms of our lives that can be conquered through Jesus.

My Father and Your Father

Friday 17th June 2022

As we celebrate Father’s Day we celebrate earthly fathers and we worship our heavenly Father, giving thanks that 1) we have a heavenly Father who is God and 2) a God we know as Father.

Wanted: More Working Fathers!

Thursday 16th June 2022

So many children today, like sheep, are harassed and helpless. Today we focus on what our heavenly Father can and will enable earthly fathers to do and be for their children.

He Can’t Stop Loving You!

Wednesday 15th June 2022

Days before his own brutal death on the cross and subsequent resurrection, Jesus stood before a tomb and demanded that death release Lazarus. Lazarus came forth — just as we all can — because of the limitless love of God.
