Jesus the Suffering Servant

Please join pastoral intern Micah Blowers as he brings us the word of God from Mark chapter 9 and will be blessed to consider Jesus as the Suffering Servant.

The Cup the Father Has Given Me

In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed that “this cup” would be taken from Him, if it were God’s will. But what is this “cup” and why would He want to avoid it.  In this message, Pastor Mark Blowers uses the Old Testament to show us what the cup is, who it is really meant for and why it was given to Jesus. And then why we can praise God in light of this fact.

Testing Jesus – 01/15/2017

Mark 12:13-27 finds the religious power brokers of the day seeking to trap Jesus with their questions. Yet like before, he answers them with confidence and seeking to teach them of their condition and worry for the present. Today, whether it be our view of influence, knowledge, position or appearance being what we strive for, Jesus asks us to look at His life and how the present pulls our gaze toward eternity.

The Essence of Christianity – 01/07/2017

What is the essence of Christianity? This most significant question is answered by the most significant person – Jesus Christ. Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he opens Mark Chapter 12 to consider Jesus teaching about the sum and center of God’s moral law.

Aware and Extravagant

In Mark 12:38-44, we see a huge contrast between the pretentious, power loving scribes and the humble, giving, trusting widow. This is a lesson for us about worship, discipleship and love. We should be extravagant in our giving, fully trusting Him with all, knowing that we worship a God who is a giver.

True Greatness

Our world has its definition of greatness. Often its about who has the most power or who has the most people working for them. Does that match God’s definition of greatness? Pastor Dustin Rogers walks us through Mark 10:32-45 as Jesus gives us the answer.

Submitting to Jesus Authority

In Mark 11:27-12:22, Pastor Jon Hess takes us inside the temple in Jerusalem to see another confrontation between the religious elite and Jesus. What follows in Jesus’s response is both compelling and prophetic. Be impacted by the life and message of Jesus, who is clearly the Messiah, the Son of God.

Promises Broken, Promises Kept

The story of Jesus and the fig tree often focuses on the curse and withering of the tree as Jesus’ power. As Pastor Jon walks us through Mark 11:11-26, we look closer at the events the cursing and withering of the fig tree surrounds and find that Jesus is trying to teach us how we, as the church, must be mindful of how the ancient tabernacle had strayed from God’s design.

Pictures of True Discipleship and True Conversion

Our world has its definition of greatness. Often its about who has the most power or who has the most people working for them. Does that match God’s definition of greatness? Pastor Dustin Rogers walks us through Mark 10:32-45 as Jesus gives us the answer.

Wealth You Can’t Afford to Keep

In Mark 10:17-31, Jesus is greeted by an eager and rich young ruler who wants to know how he gains salvation. Jesus’ answer leaves not only the young man sad but we wonder if Jesus is actually saying wealth of any kind is bad. Pastor Dustin tackles the issue of wealth and it’s strong attraction to become and idol in our lives, often clouding our view of our greater eternal treasure until we loosen our grip on our earthly riches.
