No Turning Back (Go Means Go)!
To kick off our new series through the Gospel of Mark, Troy focuses our hearts on the fact that Jesus can empathize with our weaknesses. He understands our struggles because He lived through them Himself. He is not just someone with the compassion of a person who notices suffering from the outside. Instead, He is someone who entered into our suffering and made it His own.

    Another Kind of New Year
    Series: Standalone
    With summer ending and school beginning, it feels like a new year, so Troy addresses the changes we might want to make to become healthier versions of ourselves. Most of us want our words and our actions to match what we say we believe. And given how important our witness is to a world that’s watching, Troy encourages each one of us to evaluate ourselves and take a positive step forward when it comes to putting our faith into action.

    The Calm Before the Storm
    Series: Standalone
    As summer comes to a close, Troy talks about the calm periods in life that are almost inevitably followed by storms.  Jesus never promised that we would not experience those storms, but He did promise to be with us. He can rescue us from the storms of everyday life, whether He provides immediate miracles, or He calms us and gives us peace so we can stick with it in the midst of the storms.

    Read Your Bible, Pray Every Day
    Series: Standalone
    In this standalone message, Troy discusses God’s original design for how our days should be ordered and what our weeks should look like. He also offers some practical ideas on how we can live off of the nourishment that only comes from God’s Word. God has something in mind for us that’s much better than the way we often live out our days and weeks.

    The Community We Really Need
    Series: Standalone
    Why do we need church? Why should we get up early on a Sunday morning, get ourselves and our kids ready, show up to a service, and get involved in serving? Why can’t we just do our own thing and live our lives? The simple answer is that we need the church because the church needs us. People need us to share our lives in authentic community. And when the church operates the way Jesus envisioned it, there’s nothing like it in the world.

    Turn Around, God is Still Waiting
    To conclude our series through 1&2 Peter, Troy explains that while God’s promise to send Jesus back to the earth seems to be delayed, it will not fail. We should not see the apparent delay as proof that Jesus will not return, but rather as evidence of God’s desire for all people to have an opportunity for repentance, salvation, and eternal life in heaven.

    Yes, You’re Free; No, You’re Not in Charge
    Covering some verses in 2 Peter chapter 2, Troy reminds us that God wants us to communicate clearly what happens after we die, but not as if we enjoy it. God wants us to be saved; He doesn’t want to punish us and He doesn’t enjoy watching us face the consequences of our poor decisions. As our friend, the preacher Arron Chambers has said it so many times, what God does want is for us “to go to heaven and take as many people with us as possible.”

    Famous in Your Own Home
    Series: Standalone
    Happy Father's Day! Troy reminds us on this holiday that our kids are always watching us, and that they learn more from our actions than our words. But when we live out what we say we believe, we earn the best possible reputation with those who know us better than anyone else in the world. And then we become "famous in our own homes."

    Giving What You’ve Been Given
    In this week's message from our 1&2 Peter series, Troy covers some verses in chapter 4, where Peter, who knew a lot about sin and even more about love, reminds us that "love covers over a multitude of sins." Troy also digs in to Peter's teaching that each of us should use whatever gift we have received to serve others. God gave us our unique background, personality, natural abilities, and spiritual gifts in order for us to serve Him and serve others.

    One Generation Away
    Series: Standalone
    For Mother's Day, Troy encourages us to honor the moms in our lives, while also striving to make a positive impact on the young people around us. We're always "One Generation Away" from significant change, whether it's for the good or for the bad. We want the good, and we want the next generation to be better than us, with a faith that’s stronger than ours.
