In week 1 of the On a Mission series Pastor Kel tries to help answer the question of “why do we give?” In this sermon we discuss the Biblical concept that giving is a response to what God has already done in our lives, and as such - we should be giving out of a feeling of passion and gratitude, not out of rote obligation.
As we wrap up our Back to Basics series, Pastor Kel's finishes with a message centering on where we go next. In it he discusses death, resurrection, and where we find ourselves in the midst of God's redemptive story. We can move forward with confidence in our lives as we already know how God’s story will end.
What is the church? We've all heard that we should go to church. Listen this week about why "going to" church misses the whole point. Lets not go to church, instead, lets be the church.
We shift focus a bit in our series Back to Basics. In this week we start to explore why we do some of the things that we do as we look at the question, What are the Sacraments? In this we explore Baptism, Communion, and why we do them in the United Methodist Church.
As we continue to explore the idea of God's plan for humanity's rescue, we ask the question: what is Salvation? This week we will explore the reason that God sent Jesus, His Son, to save humanity and what exactly that looks like.
In week 3 of our series back to basics we discussed the gaping separation between God and Humanity that exists because of our sin. But there is HOPE! This week we ask the question: What is the plan? And we explore how God is going to redeem humanity and restore us to himself.
Why does evil exist in the world? In order to get a glimpse into this big question, we have to go back, WAY BACK, and discuss the creation of the cosmos as well as the fall of humanity. Through studying in the first 3 chapters of Genesis, we will learn more about ourselves and gain a small understanding of why the world is so broken and what we are called to do about it.
In week 1 of the Back to Basics Series we discussed who God is, this week we will ask the question: “What is God like?”
This teaching discusses the things that make God who God is, and cover why we can trust God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
