Who Builds a Boat in the Desert?
Series: All In
Based on the story of Noah building the ark, Troy asks the question, “Who Builds a Boat in the Desert?” Noah obeyed God and lived by faith for 120 years, as he continued to build something he might not even need. This is what it means to believe God and His promises. We can learn from Noah that although we often want more revelation before we obey more, God wants more obedience before He reveals more.

    Do You Know About God, or Do You Know God?
    Series: All In
    Continuing in our All In series, Bud asks the question, “Do You Know About God, or Do You Know God?” Have you ever seen something secondhand instead of experiencing it firsthand? This happens in our relationship with God, too. Using the example of hiking the Grand Canyon, Bud encourages us to consider where in our lives we are “hugging the rim” when we should be heading down into the canyon.

    Crash the Party: Falling on the Grace of God
    Series: All In
    For this week’s message from our All In series, Troy shares one of the key points from the book, that there are times in our lives when we need to crash the party, when we need to come clean and unveil the secret shame of our sin, and fall on the grace of God. Sometimes we feel like our sin disqualifies us from the grace of God, but in reality, our sin is the only thing that qualifies us for God’s grace.

    Summit: A View of His Path
    To close out this year’s Spokane Youth Rally, our special guest speaker (Jim Dalrymple from Ozark Christian College) gives us “A View of His Path.” If Jesus is who He says He is, then we would be foolish not to follow Him. Through this message, Jim encourages us to evaluate the foundation and path of our lives, while emphasizing the resurrection of Jesus and the hope that gives us.

    This is Only a Test, but Retreat is Not an Option
    Series: All In
    (NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the first half of this message was not recorded.) Continuing in our All In series, Troy shares how God provides for us, and how He reveals His faithfulness if we will exercise our faith. And as the author of the book points out, God tests us to prove Himself to us, and to give us an opportunity to prove ourselves to Him. In addition, when we endure tests and strive to grow in our faith, we can’t just take a step forward into the future; we also have to eliminate the possibility of moving backward into the past.

    Charge! Stop Playing Defense and Start Playing Offense
    Series: All In
    Continuing in our All In series, based on some ideas from the book by Mark Batterson, Troy discusses how going all in is the unwillingness to give up. No matter how many times you get knocked down, you get back up. No matter how tough it gets, you don’t give up the fight. There are moments in all of our lives when we’re tempted to give up, but we can remain hopeful if we stop playing defense and start playing offense.

    All In: It’s Now or Never
    Series: All In
    To kick off our new series, All In, based on some ideas in the book of that name by Mark Batterson, Troy shares how the gospel costs nothing, but demands everything. Of course we all need a Savior, but we also must surrender to Jesus as the Lord and leader of our lives. The question is also asked, “Have you ever sacrificed anything for God? Because if you get back more than you gave up, have you sacrificed anything at all?

    Should I Rest on a Day Named for Work?
    Series: Standalone
    For our Labor Day weekend message, Troy discusses the topic of rest. Jesus tells us, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me.” Normally, the load is equally distributed between the two who are yoked together, but when we, as followers of Jesus, are yoked with HimHe bears the load and we share in the joy and accomplishment of the labor, but without the burden of the yoke.

    Who You Are and What You Have Are Enough
    There’s great dissatisfaction in wanting more, or better, or different, versus appreciating what we have. As Troy shares to conclude our summer series through the Ten Commandments, “Who You Are and What You Have Are Enough.” If you’re a follower of Jesus, you’re a child of God, and you are who God says you are. To overcome a coveting heart and mindset, the solution is to be content, as opposed to being consumed with wanting what you don’t have, and especially, wanting what you have no right to have.
