Who Let the Dogs Out?

Sunday, May 27th, 2007

As an adult, have you ever had a similar experience spiritually or emotionally — a time when you felt completely lost? In this week’s sermon, Pastor Jeff will interview Robin Herman as she tells her dramatic story of a catastrophic car wreck and a lost dog. From her experience, we’ll learn much about God and ourselves.

You Say Goodbye, and I Say Hello

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

Nobody likes to say goodbye. The loss is painful, and it’s easier to not face it, to just let things slide.

But the spiritual journey is often a series of hellos and goodbyes and hellos and goodbyes.

If we do the difficult work of goodbyes, then we will be ready to really embrace the next “thing” God has for us in our spiritual journey. This sermon looks at one of Paul’s farewell speeches to learn about healthy goodbyes.

Words of Life

What is the most powerful thing God has entrusted to you?

You might say it’s your money, or your career, or perhaps your standing in your family or social circles. But have you every thought that of all the opportunities, gifts, and resources God entrusted to you and me, the single most powerful could very well be the gift of speech.

With a word, we can lift someone up, or rip them to shreds — give life, or take it.

This sermon looks at ways to intentionally give life with our words.

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

When impulse tells you to do one thing, but your soul says no, who usually wins?

Of course, there is a time and a place for everything, and sometimes being impulsive is a wonderful thing. But other times, it can be hugely destructive.

We’re not going to wallow in the mistakes of our past — what’s done is done. This message is about planning for the future — to plan for the better life that we know God wants for us. Going forward, how can I gain better impulse control?
