Take a Break as if Your Life Depends on It
Troy reminds us that although we are no longer required to keep the Sabbath, there’s a powerful principle we can apply to our lives today. When we take a rest from work and all of the normal burdens and concerns of life, we can better focus on God, draw close to Him, and gain spiritual strength from Him. It can be difficult to take time out of our busy schedules, but time is required and it will be worth it. Something good can give way to make for something great.

    Telling the Right Story About God
    Why does God command us to be careful how we use His name? Why would He punish people who take His name in vain? In this week’s message from our series through the Ten Commandments, Dean answers these questions. He also teaches us that a name signifies one’s character, reputation, and authority. Therefore, when we misuse the name of God, we are not telling the right story about Him. We also need to remember that we misuse God’s name with our actions, such as hypocrisy, an ungodly lifestyle, praying for our own benefit, and praying without believing.

    What Are You Putting in God’s Place?
    Continuing in our summer series through the Ten Commandments, Troy reminds us that when we worship, we place our complete confidence and trust in God’s ability to do for us what neither we, nor anyone else, nor anything else, can do for us. He also zeroes in on the fact that we are not to make any images, including false ideas about God, in an attempt to represent Him, since it’s impossible to express or worship His attributes in that manner. Simply stated, the second commandment forbids us from thinking that God is like us or something that we imagine.

    You Are Not God (and Neither is Anyone Else)
    To kick off our new series, Troy reminds us that following God’s rules gives us great freedom, the only true freedom there really is. He also helps us understand that God’s people do not earn their position by obeying His commandments; rather, God gives us commandments because we are already His people. Regarding God’s first commandment, we must have no other gods before us, meaning there should be nothing we want more than God, nothing we rely on more than God, and nothing we look to for greater fulfillment than God.

    What Would My Dad Do Here?
    Series: Standalone
    For this year's Father’s Day message, Troy shares what he hopes his kids will say about him one day. He also focuses on the truth that God is our Father, and for everyone who is a follower of Jesus, whether or not you’re a dad, and whatever experience you had (or didn’t have) with your dad, there are some things we should want the world to say about us, because God is our Father.

    What’s In Your Hand?
    Series: Standalone
    What are you holding onto in your life? Your money and possessions? Past mistakes and bad habits that have caused you sin and shame? Longstanding traditions that are good, but could potentially lead to a fear of any change? What's keeping you from living as a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ? Jesus died for us and He gives us the power to let go of what we're holding onto and leave those sins, habits, and mistakes behind us.

    Meant to Live for So Much More
    Series: Standalone
    Whether we realize it or not, we all have a purpose and we all give our lives to something. But do we settle for less than God has for us? When we know our purpose, all of our day-to-day decisions are pretty easy to figure out. And we actually all have the same purpose: to go and make disciples of all nations. We may have different jobs, educational pursuits, family responsibilities, life situations, etc., but these serve as our platforms for carrying out our primary purpose of making disciples.

    The Free Gift that Costs Everything
    Series: Standalone
    In a message for the Memorial Day holiday, Troy shares about “The Free Gift That Costs Everything.” We want to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, who gave their very lives to secure, and to preserve, our freedom as Americans. That was a free gift to all of us who are still here to enjoy what they made possible, but it’s really not free; it cost everything to those who gave their lives. And there’s another gift that’s free to us, but really isn’t free. It cost Jesus everything, and if we decide to follow Him, it will cost us everything.

    Don’t Forget About the Loaves
    Series: Standalone
    Mark Thometz, who grew up in our church and youth group, and is now preaching in southern California, presents a message reminding us of God’s power and the fact that we can invite that power into our lives through prayer. If Jesus can turn two fish and five small loaves of bread into a hearty meal for thousands of people, He can certainly give us the strength we need to endure the storms of our lives. We just can’t forget about the loaves.

    The Hardest Job You’ll Ever Love
    Series: Standalone
    For Mother's Day, we remember that being a mom is so tough, and so awesome. Moms can relate to the idea that motherhood is “The Hardest Job You’ll Ever Love.” On the other hand, we want to honor mothers without alienating others who may not be moms, perhaps by choice, but also due to life circumstances. Something we can all remember are the attributes of moms that are also character qualities of God, including comfort, security, healing, sacrifice, training, and faith.
