You’re More Important Than I
As Albert Schweitzer found out, despite his many talents and personal accomplishments, "Every person I know who has been truly happy has learned how to serve others." What Schweitzer discovered was something Jesus taught a long time before that. Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. He also instructed us to do the same, which leads us to a much greater joy and fulfillment than we could ever have by serving ourselves first.

    Help Me Stand, Don’t Make Me Fall
    Jesus gave a strong warning to those who cause "little ones" to stumble because that's how much he values every human soul that He created. All people matter to God and they had better matter to us as well.

    Never Alone in This World

    So Different, it’s Scary
    There are bad types of different, good types of different, and even scary types of different. As we find out in Mark chapter 5, what started out as a scary kind of different ended up leading an entire region of people to know about Jesus.

    Be Careful How You Hear
    Continuing in our series through the gospel of Mark, one of our elders, Bud, teaches practical lessons from the "Parable of the Sower" in chapter 4. He also encourages us to continue planting the seed of God's Word, even when we don't see (or know) the fruit of the those efforts.

    Church Should Look More Like a Hospital
    As the church, we should be a “hospital for the sick,” so to speak, but sometimes it’s the last place we want to turn when we’re hurting, struggling, and suffering. Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” So, how can we be a “hospital” in the sense that Jesus means?

    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.
