Have you ever tried to imitate someone? You start out thinking about how they look, act, and respond to life. Then, you start to think, “what would they do?”. But being the same is not what God has called us to do. We are NOT all the same. We do NOT all have the same abilities to live life. But, we all need each other because our strengths work together to make a powerful hell-crushing movement that Christ said is unstoppable. Let’s do this – but frst, I need you to be different.
How many times has someone shared with you THEIR view of the Holy Spirit? They said the word “tongues” or used a phrase that didn’t make sense. Are there times where you felt completely confused about this “Spirit” and why it’s such a big deal – join the team! We all have the same issue Paul was wanting to help, which is why he starts with, “I don’t want you to be ignorant about spiritual things”
QnA Sunday time again – this week, it’s one topic,but a heavy one: forgiveness. What in your life are you holding onto because it was so evil, so horrible that you can’t let go? What in your past has shaped you today – but negatively? What “issues” do you have today because of what someone did yesterday? Christ died to free us with His UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. When we choose to not forgive, this cuts off our God’s love and makes us God...
Please Welcome Guest Speaker, Doug Wever.
Think of the poorest place you can. Picture the hunger, starvation, desperation, and pain. Now, picture a buffet set in the middle of the throngs of people. But there’s something sick happening – the buffet is being eaten by extremely overweight people and the area is sealed off by glass walls. How could they?! How heartless! This picture is sadly one of the “church” in many places. We feast on truth or fun or ease while the souls of others around us starve and pass away.
Our creator has designed everything and His design is PERFECT. He put a power in place that give us protection, accountability, and empowerment to live life how He designed. What is this power called?
This is our 5th Sunday event, Family Integrated QnA Service. We have kids & adults ask questions live and then we answer them!
Our lives are full of options to find pleasure. There are so many good things out there that are legal and fun for us – but does that mean its still a God thing for us? Does it mean that just because I am ok with it – that’s the best for me and my life in the great commission? If God asked you to remove something in your life, what thing would you say no, maybe, or hesitate?
Standing in town looking at a far off mountain, it appears beautiful but not very daunting. Stand at the base of it and you may just get back in your car. Why? Because you’re so close to it you see the details of it’s size, strength, and struggles. But what about God? Does he still make you stop and think at how amazing and powerful He is? If not, maybe you’re just not close enough to Him and forget how amazing He really is.
Sometimes taking what we deserve misses the bigger point and goal of life. Our job isn’t to be standing in line to get our rights met but to be on our face before God doing all He’s asked of us. Today we study when rights are wrong...
We can sometimes make our preferences or personal convictions into something that determines our value in front of people and God. Today we tackle two questions thatare centered in that arena: Soul Sleep & Singing
“It’s my right! I’ll do what I want to!” We all understand those statements, we have even said them. But what does that really cost? Are we willing to lose a friend over them? Are we willing to taint the gospel because of them? We wouldn’t say yes but we do with our actions. This isn’t new and today we study in 1 Corinthians how the rights of some were putting the souls of others in danger.
Some personalities can complicate EVERYTHING.Making pancakes can become a chore rather than simple breakfast with them. We can do that with our walk with Christ – we make it so complex and try to “do Christianity” rather than just be.
While we often see the world abuse sex - sadly, inthe name of "holiness" the church has abused sex also. Today's teaching is titled, "Sexual Misconduct" and we will wale through God's view of sex and what place it should taee in our lives as people of faith.
Christianity has been under attack since Jesus established it. Even His teachings of belief-based righteousness were attacked – even though He’s been teaching since time began. Often times we seen historical movements that try to return us to our roots and get us thinking about our past. While they remind us of much, theirs a temptation to think that our past defines our future – it doesn’t. If we forget this and get into a lifestyle that guilts us into faith we get weary. Today’s QnA Sunday tackles just these 2 things – law-keeping & weary faith.
Have you ever had trouble connecting with a person or a group of people? Sometimes that comes from just not getting along, but other times it’s our own concerns or fears that keep us from connecting & committing to that group.Today we will wrap up “What is Rise Chapel” and discuss WHO Rise Chapel is and what connecting looks like.
When someone doesn’t know why they do something it’s easy to distract them with other ideas or thoughts. They get led around by emotions and feelings rather than a mission and vision. Today we talk about the WHY of Rise Chapel. What are we all about?
This is Part 1 of this break from 1 Corinthians. Thefirst message is titled - “what is church”? Well, Church is NOT a meeting on Sunday but a people on a mission with eternal consequences. Also, we must remember, that the Church is made of people but it’s built on and held together by Jesus
