FollowMe_webCurrent Sermon Series: Advent 2013 – Walk in the Light

This series focuses on the gospel of Mark.  In Mark’s gospel, we see a very active Jesus as he travels with his disciples teaching, healing, and performing miracles.  As we center our minds and hearts on these stories about Jesus, we hope to uncover a deeper understanding of who He is.  Not only do we hope to learn more about the Savior of the world, but throughout his gospel, Mark paints us a unique portrait of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.  Mark etches out the disciples lives in a very human way that we can relate to intimately.  We are expecting to learn a lot together through this sermon series as we grow together as disciples. If you’ve missed some of the sermons in this series, you can catch up on our Sermon Page and use the search filter to listen to all the previous sermons in this series.

Recent Sermon Series:

As we opened the new year, we took some time to look at just a few of the areas of our lives that God has called us to “steward” for him. The word “steward” is important because everything we have, and everything we are, is a gift from God. He has called us to use those gifts in obedience and with joy as we work to see His Kingdom on the earth as it is in heaven. Through this series, we chose to focus on stewarding these things: Time, Voice, Body, Influence, Treasure and Gifts. If you’d like to listen to some of these messages, you will find them all on our Sermon Page (use the “filter” to easily display only the sermons from this series).
