Do You Want To Be Well?

Do You Want To Be Well?

March 15, 2020

Steve DeNeff - John 5:1-15. This has to do with our dis-ease: Do I still believe in wellness; do I think it is possible and do I really want it for myself? What about the change will be most disruptive?

Why Are You So Afraid?

Why Are You So Afraid?

March 8, 2020
Steve DeNeff - Mark 4:35-41. This has to do with our trust: Where have I put my trust? In whom or in what do I have faith? Who will take care of me? How do I know I will be okay?
What Do You Want?

What Do You Want?

March 1, 2020
Steve DeNeff - John 1:29-39a. This has to do with our purpose: What are my dreams? What do I want out of life? What kind of life is worth wanting? What desires occupy my thoughts and lead my ambitions?
Transfiguration Perspective

Transfiguration Perspective

February 23, 2020

Alex Sicilia - Matthew 17:1-9. Through this message, I intend to encourage the listeners on how we can live more meaningful lives by living with a transfiguration perspective. By this, I mean a perspective in which we are reminded on how Jesus entered our reality and shone His glory IN our reality to encourage us to know Who He really is, to listen His voice, and to feel His touch. By being reminded of who He really is, we are encouraged to live in our present reality with a more clear and meaningful perspective that will have a direct impact on our every day life.

The Lost Art of Gospeling

The Lost Art of Gospeling

February 16, 2020
Steve DeNeff - Acts 8:26-39. Most Christians want to help others find their way back to God but for some the idea of sharing the gospel feels awkward. What if, instead of learning a few talking points, we learned a few skills? And what if these skills applied to almost any conversation?
Good News for Pharisees

Good News for Pharisees

February 9, 2020
Matthew Beck - Genesis 3:6-7, Luke 11:37-44, Luke 5:29-32. At first glance, the clean-unclean metaphor in Scripture seems lost on us today. But perhaps the meaning is hidden in plain sight for an image-controlling culture that can no longer tell what is filtered and what is real. We, like the Pharisees, are experts at cleaning the outside. But are we what we appear to be? The good news is that Christ can make us clean on the inside.
Reflection Questions:
  1. Is my interior life consistent with my exterior life? 

  2. Am I being honest with God and others about what’s truly going on inside?

  3. Does my version of purity separate me from and alienate the very people that need God? 

  4. What might Christ want to clean inside me?

The Gospel of Indwelling

The Gospel of Indwelling

February 2, 2020
Steve DeNeff - Genesis 3:9-13; Matthew 8:1-13; Galatians 3:26-28. Why is there so much division among us? The walls that divide us are not between different races or generations but in every human heart. The good news is that in Christ these walls come tumbling down as God forms us all into one new Person.
The Gospel of Freedom

The Gospel of Freedom

January 26, 2020
Steve DeNeff - Genesis 3:6-10; Mark 5:1-20; John 8:31-36. Why does our pursuit of “freedom” only lead to more bondage? We are too easily entangled in things that once gave us pleasure until, before long, we serve them. The good news is that through Christ the Spirit of God has set us free from the power of sin and death.
The Gospel of the Good Life

The Gospel of the Good Life

January 19, 2020

Steve DeNeff - Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7; Proverbs 4:18-19; Mark 8:22-25. Why do smart people do stupid things? Our trouble is not rebellion but folly. Blindness. We walk in darkness, “having no idea what we’re stumbling over. The good news is that, in Jesus, God has opened our eyes and we can see things as they really are.

An Optimistic Gospel

An Optimistic Gospel

January 12, 2020

Steve DeNeff - Isaiah 55:1-7, 12-13; Mark 1:1-8; 14-15. The gospel is not about going to heaven after we die. It’s about heaven coming into us before we die. It’s more than a message. It’s a miracle. And it’s a way of life practiced in community before a world that is desperate for answers.
