Everyday Greatness series #1 “For a Greater Purpose”

Everyday Greatness Series Artwork

We live in a world that determines the greatness of a person by the number of people that serve them. However, D. L. Moody once said, “The measure of a man is not how many servants he has, but how many men he serves.” Moody’s words are a great summation of the message of the Gospel of Mark. Jesus shares the original version of this quote in Mark 10:45, setting the tone for His entire ministry and the lives of those who are His followers. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are here to serve not to be served with the intent of integrating the gospel into every area of our lives. The message of Mark 10:45 is that properly oriented hearts serve like our Savior, Jesus Christ.


Advent: We are Waiting series #3 – God Speaks in Waiting

Advent is a time in which we look toward the advent of Jesus Christ. We look back toward His 1st advent with celebration and rejoicing, and we look toward His 2nd advent with anticipation. As we wait for His 2nd advent we want to wait well understanding that God has purpose in our waiting. Part of that purpose is to speak to us in ways that heal our sinful brokenness and renews our resolve for carrying out His purposes for us on this earth. Elijah’s experience with God at Mount Horeb provides us with a vivid account of God speaking in the midst of waiting.


The Story series #27 “Living On the Other Side of the Empty Tomb”

The crucifixion of Christ is only part of the story. In order to get the full message we must also come to grips with the resurrection. The resurrection lifts the fog for us and gives the followers of Jesus the ability to live with a renewed perspective, power, and purpose.
