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

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?
