Anchored in Hope – SECUREWhen most of us picture an anchor, we think of one that goes down to the bottom of the ocean. As disciples of Jesus, we have an anchor that goes up to heaven. Our anchor rests in the Holy of Holies in heaven, behind the curtain, firm and secure in the very presence of God himself. This Sunday we will dig deeper into the reality that Jesus has gone ahead of us into heaven, and then he became the anchor for our soul. Firm and secure, trusting in Christ, our anchor will never fail. Our anchor will never slip. Our anchor will never give way. Our anchor holds because it rests on Jesus in heaven. Jesus gives us peace for our souls anchored in this hope!

Anchored in Hope – STORMSHave you ever been shaken by a storm? Perhaps it was a literal storm that damaged your car or your house. Perhaps it was a relational storm that raged a work or at home that shook you to your core. Perhaps it was a storm brought on by a disease or diagnosis. One thing that we all face at times in our lives are storms. This Sunday, we begin a three-week sermon series “Anchored in HOPE” based on Hebrews 6:19. On Sunday we will look at three storms in the Bible and how God’s people responded to those storms—Jonah, Paul, Jesus and his disciples. In the midst of each of those storms, the Lord was there encouraging, protecting, giving hope. Come this Sunday to be reminded that we have a sure and certain hope in Jesus Christ that acts as an anchor for our souls!

October 4, 2020 Anxious for Nothing – Meditate

Anxious for Nothing – Meditate Philippians 4:8You didn’t select your birthplace or birth date. You didn’t choose your parents or siblings. You don’t determine the weather or the amount of salt in the ocean. There are many things in life over which you have no choice. But the greatest activity of life is well within your dominion. You can choose what you think about. One of our greatest weapons against anxiety is to make an effort to think about what we think about. God’s word instructs us: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable– if anything is excellent or praiseworthy– think about such things (Philippians 4:8). Be part of worship this Sunday as Pastor Andy wraps up the “Anxious For Nothing” sermon series with the final prescription for anxiety – Meditate.

Sermon Theme: Anxious for Nothing – LeaveIn Philippians 4:13, the apostle Paul writes that he has learned the secret of being content in any and every situation. Instead of focusing on what Paul didn’t have, he focused on a different list. He gave thanks for everything he had in Jesus Christ. In Jesus, Paul had eternal life. He had the love of God. He had forgiveness of sins. He has the surety of salvation. He had Christ, and Christ was enough. Paul realized this truth: what you have in Christ is greater than anything you don’t have in life. You have God, who is crazy about you, and the forces of heaven to monitor and protect you. You have the living presence of Jesus within you. In Christ you have everything! This week we will study’s Paul’s third prescription for anxiety: Leave the “what ifs” behind and give thanks for what you have.

Anxious for Nothing – ASKWhat makes you feel anxious? I usually find myself most anxious when I am dealing with a situation where I feel overwhelmed and I feel like I have very little control over. This Sunday, we will find calm in the midst of a chaotic world by responding to anxiety with prayer about anything and everything, “present your requests to God.” It’s amazing that Jesus himself taught, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). When you and I feel helpless, we are invited to cry out to our loving Father and invite Him to change our hearts and to change this world. And God is able!

September 13, 2020 Anxious for Nothing – Celebrate

Celebrate – Philippians 4:4 Anxiety can be a meteor shower of what-ifs. Anxiety and fear are similar but different. Fear sees a threat. Anxiety imagines one. Fear screams, get out! Anxiety ponders, what if? The Lord invites His beloved children to rest in His arms and exchange anxiety for faith. In Philippians 4, we discover God’s plan for finding calm in a chaotic world. This Sunday, we will recognize God’s almighty power at work in our lives and in this world, his loving-mercy that is new every morning, and rejoice in His Son Jesus Christ who has died and rose again.

September 6, 2020 Vision – HUMBLE

This Sunday we will hear the disciples ask Jesus, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” This question comes after Jesus has already told his disciples twice about the suffering and death that awaits him in Jerusalem (Matthew 16:21-23; 17:22-23), and after he has told them that following him entails denying themselves and taking up the cross (16:24-25). Jesus brings a little child into their midst and challenges the disciples to humbles themselves like the child. Why is humility so important as a follower of Jesus? The humble person accurately sees God’s place, his own place, and everyone else’s place in the world. The humble person sees himself as a sinner in desperate need of God’s mercy, and having received it through the supremely humble servanthood of God in Christ, finds it more blessed to give to others than to receive so that they might maximally enjoy the mercy of God forever too. His humility allows him to see, and what he sees humbles him.

August 30, 2020 Vision – Suffering

It is hard to get past the suffering. This is true for all people. Most of us have learned that life—even Christian life—involves anguish and affliction. But the knowledge does not make the experience of suffering any easier, and it does not make the desire to avoid suffering any less intense. For this reason, Peter stands again this week as a model Christian (Matthew 16:21-28). He is not the type of model to emulate, however. Rather, he puts on display our shared determination to avoid suffering at all costs—both for ourselves and for those we love. This does not sit well with Jesus. Join us this Sunday when we remember that after His suffering, Jesus promised to rise. Likewise, after we suffer and die with Jesus, we will also rise!

August 23, 2020 Vision – Son of Man

Do you have a nickname? Or have you ever asked someone how they received their nickname? Jesus has many names, but the one name Jesus most frequently used for himself in the Gospels was “the Son of Man.” What exactly does this nickname mean? How does this nickname help us understand who Jesus is? Come this Sunday to explore who Jesus is and what difference that makes for you and me.

August 16, 2020 Vision – GREAT FAITH

Have you ever experienced shame? Sometimes we feel ashamed for what we do. Sometimes we feel a sense of shame for who we think we are. In this Sunday’s Gospel reading from Matthew 15:21-28, Jesus highlights the shame of a Canaanite women. As the woman interacts with Jesus showing a strong faith, Jesus honors her and grants her request. One of the lenses you can see the Gospel through is HONOR / SHAME. We also see the HONOR / SHAME dynamics in our current cancel culture. Come this Sunday to remember how Jesus replaces the shame of our sin with a new identity honored by the Lord.

August 9, 2020 Vision – Courage & Doubt

2020 Vision – Courage & Doubt It was Helen Keller who said, “Life is either a daring adventure, or it is nothing at all.” Born blind, deaf and unable to speak, she somehow found a way out of the darkness and into the world around her. Her story is one of the great miracles of the twentieth century. Millions of people have drawn inspiration from her example. When you bring this observation over into the spiritual realm it looks something like this: The life of faith is inherently a life of risk. It’s living and acting with courage because of God’s promises even when dealing with doubts. If you take a look at the men and women in the Bible who did great things for God, almost without exception, they were risk-takers who courageously trusted in God even when the outcome wasn’t certain. Come explore Courage and Doubt this Sunday as Jesus joins in in the midst of our lives (Matthew 14:22-33).

August 2, 2020 Vision – Satisfaction

One of my memories of my grandma and grandpa growing up is going to Bananza (think Golden Corral or Ponderosa) for lunch. Every meal included an expansive salad bar and so many options for sides. And then there was the dessert bar and ice cream machine for the end of the meal. We never left Bananza hungry—we were always satisfied! This Sunday we remember how Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish and fed over 5,000 people…and everyone ate and was satisfied (Matthew 14:13-21). What is your current level of satisfaction with life? With your relationships? With your faith? Can Jesus followers really achieve what Paul wrote of: “being content is every circumstance” (Philippians 4:11)? Join us this Sunday to explore what it means to find satisfaction in Jesus Christ.

July 26, 2020 Vision – Treasure

Have you ever watched the Antique Road Show on PBS? Experts on historical pieces tour the United States and people bring in their family heirlooms or items they have collected. The items often shown on TV are the rare and unique items, ones with historical value. I am always amazed how much some of those items are valued! In Matthew 13:44, Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure…” Jesus is that expert helping his hearers to understand the value of God’s Kingdom. Come this Sunday or watch online to experience how much God values you and how valuable our faith in Jesus Christ is!

July 19, 2020 Vision – End Times

Sometimes when I look at all the craziness of this world, I pray, “Come, Lord Jesus, come!” we believe and confess that one day Jesus will return from glory to judge the living and the dead. Jesus will establish a new earth and a new heaven. In His parable about the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43), Jesus shapes our worldview on how God deals with a world filled with believers and non-believers. Jesus also gives us a vision of what will happen when He returns. Join me this Sunday to understand better Jesus’ Vision on the End Times.

July 12, 2020 2020 Vision – Fruitful

Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is like a sower…” a sower who keeps sowing in spite of the birds, the hard ground, the thorns; a sower who keeps sowing the seed in spite of what is; a sower who keeps sowing for the sake of what might be. Why does he keep sowing? Or why isn’t he more careful? He seems to throw the seed everywhere, indiscriminately. He keeps sowing the gospel seed knowing that in some hearts, in some lives, the gospel seed will be fruitful! When the seed falls on good soil, when it grows, then there is a church and followers of Jesus that remembers who it is and what it’s for. When the seed falls on good soil, when it grows, then there is a church and believers bearing fruit, changing life and shattering earth. Come this Sunday to celebrate Jesus’ vision of a fruitful people transformed from death to life by the gospel of grace!

June 28, 2020 Vision – Real Life

Are you finding your life or losing it? In Matthew 10:39, Jesus is telling us… “If you are finding for yourself, getting, obtaining and procuring for your life now, then your life will be utterly lost, ruined and destroyed in the future.” At the beginning of Matthew 10, Jesus sends His disciples to preach the kingdom of God to the lost tribes of Israel. In other words, Christ was commissioning them to do the Work of God—the same Work Jesus is calling you and I to do today. Real life happens when we give of our lives (lose them) to support the Church’s commission of spreading the gospel. Real life happens when we love and forgive sacrificially. Real life happens when we give even a cup of cold water to someone in need. Are you ready to lose your life to find it?

June 14, 2020 Vision 2020 – COMPASSION

In Matthew 9:36, we read that when Jesus saw the crowds, “He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” This Sunday, we will explore what it means to see the world through the eyes of compassion. When you have compassion, you're putting yourself in someone else's shoes and really feeling for them. When God looked at this fallen world, He had compassion and sent Jesus to rescue, redeem, and restore. What does compassion look like for a Christian today?
