Why Read the Bible?

Even people who have been "Church People" for years can struggle to understand the Bible. In this message, Pastor Mike helps us know where to start.

Jesus - Between Two Trees - Part 8

Revelation 21 and Genesis 1 look pretty similar. We’re not floating on clouds and singing hymns forever. We are living in resurrected physical bodies in a new heaven and a new earth without sin, pain, or death anymore.

What does your neighbor want for Christmas?

Have you ever seen someone give a really BAD Christmas gift? Was it because they didn't know the person they were giving to? Or because their heart wasn't in it? Or were they just clueless? This Christmas, what are the people around you longing for? Into today's message, we learn what can give them by discovering what the REAL reason for the season is...and it's probably not what you think.

What Does the World Want for Christmas?

What do you want for Christmas - Part 1

"What do you want for Christmas"? That question gets asked every year and with all the confusion about what Christmas is really about, maybe it's a great question for us to ask together. In this 4 week series, we'll ask this question from 4 different perspectives. In part one, we'll be asking, What does the World want for Christmas?

Press On Towards Grace

Every one of us struggles to put our confident trust in the right places. Too often we put it in ourselves and our circumstances. But in Philippians 3, Paul says, "I've played the human achievement game and it can't be won!" Fortunately, there's a better option...


The story of Joseph in Genesis is not just a beautifully recounted story of Joseph's trails, tribulations, and redemption, it's also a story of God's sovereign hand guiding and directing all things towards our deliverance and His kingdom coming into the world.

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob

Today’s message is about how the "heroes of the faith" tell a story not only of faithfulness, but of severe dysfunction. We see the same pattern we see in our lives:
We get controlled by deep fear or desire.
We try to FORCE an outcome to avoid risk.
Lives get destroyed.
Thankfully, their lives and ours are not identified by our mess, but by God making it all new...and changing the world through us.

The Flood

The story of Noah and the Flood is one of the most devastating stories of God's justice in the entire Bible. Humanity's evil, violence, injustice, and oppression had caused God's patience to run out. Yet, God also extends mercy and remembers his promise to Eve.

Creation and Fall

As we continue to make sense of our lives by making sense of the overarching story of the Bible, we are digging into the Genesis story of the Creation and Fall of humankind. Today, we discover that we can begin to make sense of ALL of our DESIRES and ALL of our DISTRESSES through this account of creation. Good news: It ends with all your desires being fulfilled.

Herod & Joseph

What would you do if you came home and found a baby left on your doorstep? Whatever your response, you probably couldn’t just ignore it. The same is true for Jesus. When we look at his claims and calls, we can reject or receive him, but there’s not much room for pretending like he’s not there. Although his presence might feel threatening to things we’ve come to value, Jesus didn’t come to take away what is valuable. He came to give us something better than what we’ve settled for.
