When Jesus taught about prayer in the Sermon on the Mount, Pastor John says, it was not an example of “if you’ll say these words in just the right way you’ll get what you want.” Rather, it was an example of “this is the heart I want you to have, this is how I want you to see who your father is.” If you go into prayer in private and learn that the power in your life is out of a secret relationship with God, that’s the one where the reality of who you really are is expressed. Message delivered 1/29/17.
Continuing his teaching series on prayer, Pastor John Young notes that in our faith lives, there are many things God wants us to do with people. But when it comes to the heart of prayer, he said, Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that God wants us to go to a place where nobody else is, shut the door behind us, and pray in private. That is because our relationship with God is not about what other people see, but it’s about what God knows is in our hearts. Message delivered 1/22/17.
Pastor John Young launches a three-part teaching series on prayer with the assertion that the basis of our trusting and rest in God is the conviction that he is a good, good Father. Message delivered 1/15/17.
Pastor John reiterates our church purpose: To experience Christ through community, through service, and through love. At the end of his message there was a video, “This is Discipleship”, which can be seen from the link below.
After the video there are several testimonies about what God has done in the lives of some church members: Amy Minnich, Guy Boyer, Addie Guzman and Steve Adams and Julie Rashkin, plus a word from the Lord through Wendy McDermott.
