Guest Speaker Richard Koons brings us a message about becoming a "Man of Steel".
Do you watch what you say and do around your children? They're soaking up more than you think! Pastor Wallace reminds us of the importance of raising children with integrity.
How do we renew our cities? By learning what it means to be a neighbor. Jesus gives us a beautiful example of what renewal really looks like and the kind of investment it takes to truly answer the question, "What does it mean to be a neighbor?" Renewal takes effort, it takes commitment, and it's impossible to do well. It takes Jesus to show us what it means to be a neighbor, Jesus to fulfill the requirement to be a good neighbor and the Spirit to enable us to emulate His example.
This week we look at the new command given by Jesus that we are to love one another, but not merely to love one another, but to love one another 'like Jesus loved us.' This not only totally raises the call, but also tells us that we aren't to love one another based on our feelings, our experiences or how culture tells us to love, but how Jesus loves us. It tells us that how Jesus loves is our basis and our plumb line. What a beautiful way to love. in addition to the beautiful call to love, we also learn that we aren't left alone, that we have been given the Helper, the Holy Spirit to lead us. What a sweet gift.
Life of re:producing February 3, 2013 Text: I Corinthians 3:1-15, 21-23; 4:14-18, NLT Key Thought: Christ invites us into a life of reproducing: to show others how to follow Him and help them as they do. I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. I Corinthians 3, NLT
Everyone of us is following someone or something. But for many of us our lives are at least a little adrift, running in a rut or way off course. How does Jesus change this for us? Our premise in this message is that, 'Unless you're submitting to being discipled & making disciples, you're Christianity will feel incomplete & you will continually be disillusioned with your faith, thinking 'It doesn't work.' In this message we look at the call to discipleship, what it is and what to expect along the way.
Life of re:levant January 27, 2013 Text: Ephesians 2:1-10; 3:18-19 Key Thought: Christ invites us into a life of relevant: to impact people for Christ by connecting with them.

Life of re:sponsive January 20, 2013 Text: II Corinthians 1:3-11; Philippians 4:19-20 Key Thought: Christ invites us into a life of responsive: helping others, with Him, as He continues to help us.

We are absolutely committed to the biblical truth that God is a missionary God, and that Jesus has been at work, is at work and will continue to be at work in renewing all things. We believe part of his call to us is in 'joining God in the renewal of all things'. In this sermon we begin our new mission & vision series of the same title.
