Faith in the Darkness

In this opening to 2 Thessalonians, the young church is facing significant hardship & persecution. Paul, Silas, and Timothy want them to think correctly about their sufferings and that God will make things right. While we wait for his coming, do you believe God can work through you to bring goodness into a dark world?

Playing Your part To Build Up

As Paul concludes his first letter to this young church, he challenges them to consider what their role is in building up leaders and encouraging those who are struggling. From 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22

In Light of Jesus’ Return

One of the things Scripture anticipates the most is the second coming of Jesus. Yet we have many questions about how and when it will happen. Paul & Silas write to this young church in Thessalonica to clear up some confusion so they will know how to live in light of his return.

Sexual Formation In The Way of Jesus

Modern America and ancient Thessalonica have a lot in common. The church can easily be compromised by sexual sin. Paul & Silas encourage both of us to bring our sexual formation under the authority of Jesus.

Pray and Show Up

Christianity can be hard at times, especially when you are away from people you love. Paul will inspire us how to show up for our Christian brother’s and sister. From 1 Thess 2 & 3

Authentic Witness

How do people know our message and our lives are authentic? Paul & Silas map out for us some guidance to make sure our words and witness are consistent. From 1 Thessalonians 2.

Worth Imitating

As Paul reconnects with the church in Thessalonica, his heart is full of joy. Faith is alive and the fruit of the gospel is growing. Although a young church, they already have a faith worth imitating. Do we have a faith that serves as a model for others?

On Mission With Jesus

Jesus in his final moments on earth, with all the authority of heaven, communicated his instructions to his disciples. Those objectives continue today. As stewards of his church, how are we doing with the mission he gave us?

Neighboring Matters

Jesus is questioned about what is most important. We expect him to answer to love God. But Jesus continues the second most important thing is to love your neighbor.. In this message we explore ways you can be a better neighbor.

The Heart of the Matter

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the externals of having our life together. But Jesus isn’t content with appearances. He cares about the condition of our heart and encourages us to take a look at what might need some cleaning.

Why Your Motives Matter

Right actions are important. But Jesus takes it to a whole other level by commanding us to examine our motives. They matter to Jesus and they should matter to us as well. From Matthew 6.
