Experiencing the Holiness of God

Experiencing the Holiness of God | Isaiah 6

In Isaiah 6, God’s prophet Isaiah sees an astonishing vision of heaven and God’s magnificence. When Isaiah encounters the Lord, he cannot help but see his own sin and weakness – his faults fully exposed. It is no different for us today.

In God’s presence, there is no room for comparison or way to hide… but even where sin is great, grace is greater still!

Pastor James has a special message leading into and out of this weekend teaching – join us as we encounter God in His Word and turn to Him in repentance and faith.

Everyday Joy Through Contentment | Philippians 4

The Apostle Paul was a follower of Jesus who suffered through imprisonment, hunger and persecution. Amazingly, despite those trials he declared, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”

When we rejoice in what God has provided, we will not become overwhelmed by what we don’t have.

This Thanksgiving weekend, let’s be thankful for God’s goodness and content in what He has provided. Join us in Philippians 4 as learn “Everyday Joy Through Contentment”!

Don’t Shrink God | Ephesians 3

When God is big, problems are small… but when problems are big, God is small.

Struggles may weigh us down and our burdens may overwhelm, but God is never maxed out or too busy. He is always able to work abundantly, and deal with our trials in far more powerful ways than we could ask or  imagine.

Get ready for “Don’t Shrink God!” in Ephesians 3 – He is greater than our problems!
