READ. WATCH. LISTEN.

Thank you for visiting our Sermon Archive page.  We know that life can get busy, so we have created this resource to help you avoid missing out on the conversations we are having over Scripture.  We believe that God works powerfully through Christians gathered together for His glory, therefore please avoid using this resource as a replacement for gathering together with your church family on Sunday mornings.  In addition to the sermon, we want to encourage you to participate in one of our Sermon-based Groups where a dialogue happens over the messages.  You can find a group HERE.  Also, visit our Vimeo page HERE.

In the twenty-first and twenty-second chapters of the Book of Acts, we discover that God Works giving us specific roles.  In these chapters, we will follow the Apostle Paul as he interacts with a variety of people with a variety of titles and responsibilities.  As we see the story unfold, we are inspired to consider our own role in God’s creativity.  Examining the different dynamics found in this section of Paul’s journey, you will understand what it means to embrace your God-given role whatever your role, whatever their role, whatever your past, and whatever your challenges.

Do you have people around you who you could describe as toxic? What is it that makes for a toxic relationship? What if we are the ones being toxic and we do not even realize it? Just like bringing certain chemicals together can create a deadly combination, so can bringing certain people together. How can we find help? In the Bible, we can read a letter to a young preacher named Timothy, where an encouragement was given to Timothy to avoid certain types of people. In fact, Timothy was given a list of nineteen different types of people to avoid. In this series, we will examine the types of people found in Timothy’s letter and find guidance for ourselves as we try to avoid toxic relationships. We may even discover that we have some toxic tendencies of our own to address.

When God Works, it often does not fit our natural expectations. In fact, sometimes His work can seem very strange. What if some of the strange things that we face are in fact an expression of or platform for God’s work? God’s ways are greater than our own and His works cannot always fit into our finite minds. There is a spiritual dimension that we can too often underestimate. As we walk through the nineteenth and twentieth chapters of Acts, we find the Holy Spirit working in ways that can seem strange. Could it be that God is still doing strange things in our lives for His glory? This series will help us embrace God’s work even in the stranger things.

What gets your heart racing?  What moves you to action?  In this series, we will examine those things that motivate us and as Christians, those things that should motivate us.  What if we were a faith community full of people passionate and motivated in the same way on certain things?  What if we were all compelled to move in the same direction together?  Imagine the exponential impact that we could have together!

What type of impact are you making on the world? When Christians take their faith into the culture, it can turn the world upside down. In fact, God has sent us into the world to make that type of difference! So, how do we do it? As we continue in our God Works series, we will find in the seventeenth and eighteenth chapters of the Book of Acts that the disciples of Jesus were leaving a God-sized mark everywhere they went. Sometimes people were receptive and other times they were not. As we walk through these two chapters, we will learn how to be intentional in persuading others toward Christ and in doing so, turning the world upside down.

What if God has intentionally placed you into your neighborhood because He has a purpose for you right where you live? Imagine what God could do in our communities! In this series, we will define what it means to be intentional neighbors and discover the power of what God can do through us in our neighborhoods.

Through the fifteenth and sixteenth chapters of the Book of Acts, we discover how God highlighted the significance of three different women in the growth of the early church. The stories of the influence that these women had will provide keys to help us in our perspective of how God Works in and through women today. These chapters remind us to honor the women that God has used to impact our own lives.

What is your real purpose in life?  Would anything change if you believed that God has uniquely set you apart for something great?  In the thirteenth and fourteenth chapters of the Book of Acts, we find that God sent out His disciples with a clear purpose.  As they engaged in God’s Work, they got to be a part of amazing movements of God.  God Works today in the same way by sending us out.  We have been set apart for this!  As we walk through these chapters, we will discover how to embrace the call that God has given to each one of us.

Let’s face it, sometimes marriage can feel like a great big puzzle.  In today’s culture, there is much confusion on what the final picture is supposed to look like.  In the midst of marriage, we can face challenges that leave us confused as to what goes where.  Whether a person has never married, is in the middle of a marriage, or was once married, we need a biblical perspective on what God intends.

We all have a variety of capacities to accomplish a variety of objectives.  What if we have more capacity than we know?  What if we are not as limited as we think?  In the eleventh and twelfth chapters of the Book of Acts, we find that God Works by stretching the capacity of His people.  God works through them in ways that expand their imagination and even their logic.  God can work through us in the same way.  God is not limited.  As we grow in our understanding of God through the stories in these chapters, may we also grow in our belief that God can do more than we ever thought possible.

Boundaries can be good and bad.  Boundaries are good when they protect us and guide us, but they become bad when they keep us from where we should be.  In life, we can experience social, ethnic, religious, financial, and even physical boundaries that prevent us from fully embracing all that God has intended.  The good news is that “God Works” by breaking through boundaries.  The ninth and tenth chapters of the Book of Acts can help us move beyond those limitations.”

Sometimes we face impossible challenges.  Thankfully, our God can overcome any challenge.  In this segment of the “God Works” series, in the third and forth chapters of the Book of Acts, we see God work in unexpected ways.  God heals a forty-year-old man born lame, the followers of Jesus get arrested, and amazingly these two events lead to another two thousand people deciding to follow Jesus.  As we learn how God worked in the past, we will better understand how God works today.
