How Much is Enough?
Series: Radical
In our latest message in the Radical series, Troy helps us consider the question, "How Much is Enough?" He also challenges us to consider whether we have blind spots in our lives when it comes to caring for the poor and needy around us and throughout the world. As Americans, we live in relative luxury while nearly half of the world's people live in extreme poverty. Each one of us as Christians must wrestle with what Jesus is calling us to do with our resources as we follow Him.

    Continuing in our "Radical" series, Bud teaches us about "The Multiplying Community" that God calls His church to be.

    Thanks for Nothing
    Series: Standalone

    In honor of our annual Thanksgiving meal and the fast-approaching holiday, Troy wants to say, "Thanks for Nothing." And here's what he means by "nothing:" 1) He's thankful for the "nothing" that Jesus made Himself; 2) He's thankful for the "nothing" that God remembers when it comes to our sins; and 3) He's thankful for the "nothing" that can separate us from the love of God.

    Beginning at the End of Ourselves
    Series: Radical
    Continuing in our "Radical" series, Troy shares about our need to give up on trying to do things in our own power. This is when God does His best work; when we come to the end of ourselves and choose to trust in His power, not our own. God does this if we are radically dependent on Him and if we are radically devoted to making much of Him.

    I Will Pray for the Church and Its Leaders
    To wrap up our series, "I Am a Church Member," Troy team-teaches with Joe Miller on this commitment: "I Will Pray for the Church and Its Leaders." Ministers and elders and deacons (and other ministry leaders) need our prayers for their protection, for their wisdom, and for their families. NOTE: Since Troy and Joe were recorded on two different microphones, there may be some choppy transitions in the sermon as you listen to it online.

    I Will Love God and People (It’s Not About Me)
    Continuing in our series, "I Am a Church Member," Bud discusses the critical importance of loving God and loving people. He also challenges us to prevent our church from being about our personal preferences and desires. Bud encourages us to be unselfish, to serve others, and to serve Christ. Since Jesus went to a cross for us, we can deal with any inconveniences and matters that just aren't our preference or style.

    A Tale of Two Church Members
    With today's message, Troy starts us off on a four-week series called, "I Am a Church Member," based on some ideas in the book of the same name by Thom Rainer. This message discusses some of the struggles and challenges we face in the church, while encouraging all of us who are members to be honest and look in the mirror. Many congregations are weak because many of us as church members have lost the biblical understanding of what it means to be a part of the body of Christ.

    Young People: Problems, Challenges, or Assets?
    Series: Standalone
    In today's message, Dean reflects on our childhood memories of church and Sunday School, as well as our subsequent involvement in youth and teen ministries. He discusses the critical importance of making the jump from youth group to participation in adult services. Ultimately, he challenges us to treat young people as assets and to prepare them for "big church" when they finish high school and become young adults.

    A Safe Place for the Hurting
    Series: Standalone
    It is experiences from hurtful relationships that caused your wounds, and it takes new experiences with safe, caring people to bring healing. As Troy shares this morning, the good thing is that the church is the best place to provide those new experiences with safe, caring people. What works in restoring a broken life is when one person invests in another person by means of a relationship.
