Who Stole My Worship?
Series: Standalone
Today's message is about musical Worship.  Bud and Chad talk about how, historically, music in churches has caused so much division.  The music from our era is what we all hold dear, but our goal as Christians should be to seek the lost no matter what our personal preferences are.

    A Heavenly Goal in an Earthly World
    In today’s message, based on Philippians 3:12-4:1, Troy shares the apostle Paul's encouragement for us to forget the past, press on, and grow to live on earth like heaven is our home. Although we live in this world, our real citizenship is in heaven. We long for our home; we’re excited for it and we live with the great hope that, in the big picture of eternity, it's just around the corner.

    From Death to Life: Losing Everything to Gain Everything
    Continuing in our “Pursuit of Joy” series through Philippians, Troy reminds us how meaningless it is when we try to be enough and do enough in this life. We can’t be right with God based on who we are and what we’ve done. However, once we understand the worthless nature of our earthly accomplishments, we can “lose everything to gain everything.”

    Living Inside Out: A Shining Light in the Darkness
    In this morning’s message from our “Pursuit of Joy” series, Troy discusses how to “live inside out” to show God’s work in our lives and to help us stand out as “shining lights in the darkness.” Our words and actions come from our hearts, so we must allow God to transform our insides so we can live right on our outsides, which then points people to God.

    Suffering with a Purpose: Don’t Waste Your Pain
    Continuing in our “Pursuit of Joy” series through the book of Philippians, Troy shares about the purposes of our suffering and he encourages us not to “waste our pain.” The apostle Paul used his chains—his imprisonment—to advance the gospel, as we read in Philippians chapter 1. It wasn't that he enjoyed being incarcerated, but he knew it could be turned to good purposes. In God’s hands, intended evil becomes eventual good.

    A Partnership of Prayer, Growth, and Love
    Troy kicks off our new series, “The Pursuit of Joy,” which will take us through the book of Philippians. Although the apostle Paul is imprisoned while writing to the church at Philippi, he wrote a letter that 2,000 years later is still known as the treatise on joy. As we learn from chapter one, verses 3-11, Paul helps us find joy and bring that same joy to others through “A Partnership of Prayer, Growth, and Love.”

    Sacrifice Your Money for a Specific Purpose
    Series: Radical
    For our last message in “The Radical Experiment,” Dennis challenges us to give sacrificially for a specific purpose and for a set period of time. He encourages us to give away what hurts to give; this means giving not according to our ability, but beyond our ability. Why? Because our giving blesses us and enables us to spend our lives radically on specific, urgent spiritual and physical needs in the world.

    Spend Your Time in Another Context
    Series: Radical
    In this morning’s message, guest speaker Jakob King (Middle School Minister at Eagle Christian Church, ID) challenges us to spend our time in another context as part of “The Radical Experiment. Jakob reminds us that we are “sent” and, based on Acts 1:8, he invites us to consider what Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and the ends of the earth are in our lives. In other words, how will we go and give of ourselves in our neighborhoods, our cities, our surrounding communities, and the whole world.

    Read Through The Entire Word
    Series: Radical

    For the second challenge in the Radical Experiment, Troy discusses the commitment we can make to “Read Through the Entire Word.” This means we systematically read through the entire Bible—Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 and all 31,102 verses in between—over the course of a year. Our brothers and sisters around the world often gather at the risk of their lives to hear God’s Word. If you and I will join them in radical obedience to Christ, we must start with our Bibles open and our minds engaged.

    Pray for the Entire World
    Series: Radical

    Continuing with our Radical Experiment, Troy focuses on the challenge: "Pray for the Entire World." If God's plan is for the disciples of Jesus to carry the message into all the world, and to tell others, who will in turn tell others until the last person in the farthest corner has heard the story, then we should be praying for the world and for God's plan to reach it. And apparently, Jesus' concern was not that the lost would not come to the Father; instead, His concern was that His followers would not go to the lost.
