Something Else is Going On03/19/17

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Love, Non-Violence
  • The Old Testament often portrays God as either doing, commanding, or threatening violence. For many, this is a huge problem because these depictions contradict the way Jesus lived and commanded. What are we to do with this contradiction? In this sermon, Greg invites us to see that there is something else going in these portrayals of violence, and we can only see this something else when we understand what was going on when Jesus died on the cross.

Fear and Control03/12/17

  • Speaker – Sandra Unger
     
  • Topics – Fear, Love, Calling
  • Fear is part of the journey in this life, but for many, fear is consuming. As a result, it serves as a roadblock that keeps us from entering into what God has for our lives. God provides a way for us to move beyond fear and into a life of love. This is possible not because we have a guarantee that everything will work out as we wish, but because, even in the midst of the ups and downs of life, we know that God's love is greater than the fearful circumstance we face.

Addiction03/05/17

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Community, Hope, Identity in Christ
  • In the Kingdom of God freedom is an end in of itself. It is part of our nature as created beings to be free and not be ruled over by one another, any agent in the spiritual realm, or by substances or behavior patterns. For many people addiction is one of the key stumbling blocks that perpetuates cycles of shame, hiding, and a lack of fullness of life. In this message Greg explores what lies at the heart of all addictions, substance or otherwise, and how we go about untangling ourselves from their grip so we can step into the full life that God desires us to have.

Unforgiveness02/26/17

  • Speaker – Brianna Millett
     
  • Topics – Forgiveness, Identity in Christ, Kingdom of God, Transformation
  • This is the fourth week in our Overwhelmed sermon series. Today we discussed the challenge of unforgiveness and resentment. Brianna suggests that living out of a false identity can be perhaps the greatest source of our struggle to extend forgiveness to ourselves or to others. The way to freedom from our unforgiveness is to remember the truth of who we are in Christ, and to be transformed more fully into our true identity by being transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Shame02/12/17

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Identity in Christ, Judgment, Love
  • In the second week of our Overwhelmed series Greg unpacks the topic of shame. We begin by looking at the origin of shame in Genesis 3; what shame is and where it comes from. Next we look at how God defeats shame on the cross and welcomes us to live shame-free lives through His unconditional love.

The True You02/05/17

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Faith, Fear, Forgiveness
  • This initial sermon in our Overwhelmed series was a foundational message about the root of everything that holds us back.  God has designed us to have power over our brain and our thought life and it is our responsibility to be disciples of our brain.  We must fight against the cultural lies of our world by daily renewing our mind by focusing on who God says we are.

    Here is a link for the video that we played before the teaching.
