It’s Not What You Know, It’s What You Do
Continuing in our series through James, Real Faith in the Real World, Troy reminds us that although the Bible is foundational and critically important in our lives, it’s not enough merely to read it or hear it or even know everything it says. We have to put our faith into practice and actually do what the Bible tells us.

    Please Come In (and Good Riddance)
    Series: Standalone
    To help us close out a challenging year and look ahead to a new, hopefully better one, Troy encourages us to ask ourselves the following question: What if the things you’ve experienced up to this point—the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful—were all meant to lead you to exactly where you find yourself now?

    Nothing I Wouldn’t Do Myself
    Series: Standalone
    For this year's Christmas message, Troy reminds us of what we celebrate this time of the year: God became flesh and was born as a baby to fulfill His purpose of one day dying for us. His cradle was in the shadow of a cross and everything He did was for the sake of others.

    Finding Meaning in Suffering
    To conclude our short series, Hanging on to Hope, Troy encourages us not to waste our pain but to find meaning in it. The question we should ask when God allows us to go through hard times is not why, but who? In God's mind, pain has two intended recipients: us and someone else. If we choose not to take what we’ve experienced and find some way of using it to help other people, we miss a large part of why God allowed us to suffer in the first place.

    We’re In This Together (How Can I Help)?
    As Bud explains through this message from our Hanging on to Hope series, when the community of Jesus' followers is operating the way He dreamed it could work, there's nothing like it in the world. The church has incredible power and beauty when it works the way Jesus intended.

    I’m Broken Like You (I Feel Your Pain)
    Continuing in our series, Hanging On To Hope, Bud shares one of the key reasons why we go through difficult experiences: our wounds give us power to feel another person’s pain. God allows us to be broken by trials to help us gain credibility with other broken people, and to help them persevere through challenging times.

    Thank You (No Matter What)
    Series: Standalone
    Through a Thanksgiving-related message, Troy reminds us of the importance of keeping our sense of gratitude in any and all of our life situations. The foundation of a thankful heart lies in who God is, not in our circumstances, because they always change, but God never changes. Our circumstances are not always good, but God is always good.

    The Miracle of Sticking With It
    Continuing in our series, Hanging on to Hope, Troy shares what it means to live in such a way that our lives would not make sense if God did not exist. Specifically,  when God gives us the miraculous strength to "stick with it" in the midst of incredible hardship, our example can have a profound, lasting impact on someone else.

    Between a Rock and a Hard Place
    Troy begins a new series this morning, entitled, Hanging On to Hope, that will take us through the rest of the year, with the exception of a few holiday-themed messages. Our prayer is for God to use this series to give all of us some encouragement as we close out a very difficult year. In this opening message, for those of us who feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, we can trust God to pull us up, to help us stand on the rock, and to show us that the rock is Jesus.

    It’s Always Good to be Good
    To conclude our series, It Will Get Better, that has taken us through the books of 1&2 Thessalonians, Dean shares some final warnings and words of encouragement from Paul. Specifically, we are urged to live a Christ-like life, never grow weary of doing good, and focus on serving the church rather than being idle and meddling in the affairs of others.
