The Jesus/You Switch-a-roo - 27 August 2017 (Joe Habermehl)

The Jesus/You Switch-a-roo  

Romans 5:12-21  

Sometimes we need a big picture to make sense of suffering, and that's what Romans gives us - the victory of Jesus over the "sin that brought suffering" of Adam; and in that victory He gives us the right to reign in Life.

Is This Wrath?  

Romans 5:6-11  

One of the hardest things to separate out in our Christian growth is learning to tell the difference between discipline and punishment.  In this passage Paul helps us see God's love at work so that our pain doesn't become the pain of rejection.

An Excellent and Profitable Message  

Pastor Kevin Hodges  

Have you ever had that experience where you and someone else are disagreeing on a topic, only to find that the cause of the conflict is a differing of topic definition?  What is the definition of 'good'?  What is the definition of 'bad', 'positive', 'negative', 'holy', 'sin' etc.?  For different people these have different meanings and definitions than they do for other people.  Pastor Kevin takes us on a journey to help us clarify a topic that many Christians have differing definitions of.

Know Pain, Know Gain - 6 August 2017 (Joe Habermehl)

August 9, 2017

Know Pain, Know Gain  

Romans 5:1-5  

This may be the hardest question your soul will ever have to face.  Pain makes life feel unfair and leaves us wondering where is God, which is why Paul uses it to help us feel the firm foundation of God's love beneath our feet even when we experience suffering.

Why Suffering?  

Wow that's a hard one!  Of all the topics in the Bible, this one carries the most confusion and fear.  This one can make even "strong" Christians doubt and cry out, "My God, My God, Why?"  You may want, even hope to avoid it, but the truth is we all experience suffering and pain and we need God's help to maintain and even strengthen our faith while we go through our trials.  But chin up, it all leads to love.  


One day Jesus was asked to come to a house where a young girl was dying, and while on the way there she died.  The girls father was immediately overtaken by the new reality and began to lose hope, but Jesus just looked him in the eye and said, "Don't be afraid, just believe." (See Mark 5: 22-43).  
Do you need to hear that from Jesus today?  We are all facing difficulties that confuse us and confront our deepest fears.  In that uncertainty we need to hear the voice of God telling us to keep our faith and trust in Him.  
"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." Isaiah 26:3  

Your Pastors,  
Joe and Jodie  


Un-Believable Hope - 30 July 2017 (Joe Habermehl)

August 2, 2017

Un-Believable Hope

John 11

What if there was no logical reason to believe that something good would happen to you?  What if the circumstances were so bad that you really thought, "No chance- ever."?  What kind of hope comes in hopeless situations?  



The Expectation of Grace - 23 July 2017 (Joe Habermehl)

The Expectation of Grace  

John 8:1-11  

Have you ever gone to somebody for help and wondered if they would?  Have you ever thought- "Do they like me enough?".  A lot of people are the same with God.  What do you expect?

The Law of Faith  

John 9:1-17  

A lot of people wonder how to get the power of God working in their lives.  It's like we wish there was some consistency rather than the confusion of all the religious theories around us.  Enter the Law of Faith.

Un-Romantic - 9 July 2017 (Joe Habermehl)

July 13, 2017


John 4:1-21  

What is the book of Romans really about?  Complicated doctrine?  Condemning expectations?  Confusing regulations?  Not at all.  It is a beautiful description of the deep supply of God to meet our most basic needs through the simplicity of faith.
