Keys to living with courage

Guest speaker Joe Janssen, director of U.S. ministries for Elim Fellowship, teaches about how to live with courage, using the example of Caleb.  The essentials to remember about courage, he said, are:

  • It is the spark plug if faith.
  • Don’t let your past hold your present or your future hostage.
  • Live in an atmosphere of praise.
  • Courageous people change the culture (through service and love). Don’t let the culture change them.
  • Courageous people honor the word of God by how they apply it. Also memorize it to let God’s word change their minds.
  • Never give up.

Message delivered 6/18/17.

Here’s a YouTube play list of the songs we sang in worship.

Plan “A” all the way

Amy Minnich helps us to see the difference between living Plan A (God’s Way) and Plan B (Living our own way). She compares living a life of legalism with life in the Spirit. Her message encourages us to not just be Christians, but true Christ-followers. Plan A is living life in constant pursuit of Jesus and receiving everything He has for us, which allows us to live in freedom and experience the abundant life.

Saying “Yes” to God

Kevin Harvey looks at Luke 5 talking about when we say “Yes, Lord.”  How are we responding to God when He speaks to us? (Message delivered 5/7/17.)

Peter and the disciples tried in their own strength to provide for themselves—in this case, to catch fish.  God always has His own agenda for our lives-even in the mundane things we do each day.  The real test of our faith comes when everything we’ve tried fails and God tells us to do something in order to stretch our faith limits.

In the message, Kevin presses three points:

  1. God uses the common to do the uncommon.
  2. He desires to move us out of the security of the shallow to the risks of the deep.
  3. He will involve you in one thing to teach you another.

Lift up your eyes

If you feel like it’s been one thing after another, and you’ve wondered, “when is this going to let up?” God wants to encourage you.

If you feel ‘battle weary’ from the constant fight and the ‘enemy’ has you on the run, God wants to strengthen you.

If it feels like you’ve been living under a heaviness or fog that just won’t lift- God wants to lift you out of it.

Pastor Zach Zirbel shares a word of encouragement.  Message delivered 4/30/17.

The answer to finding true peace

There’s so much stress in life today, it seems impossible to find peace. There are ways to get a little relief, Pastor Zach says, but it never lasts. But there is an answer, available to real, ordinary people, to find that peace.  Jesus has the answer, the antidote: “Come to me.” Not religion, not law, but surrender to God in Christ. Message delivered 4/2/17.
