The Christmas story is a story about worship. But worship is not just some formal religious activity; worship is a matter of the heart. So how can we tell what we worship? Pastor Jeremy teaches from Matthew 2 about three ways to discern what we truly worship and if it's not God, what to do about it.
Do you know the true joy of Christmas? In the 3rd week of our series on worship, Pastor Jeremy takes a look at a well known passage in Matthew 2:1-12 about the journey of the wise men. But, it's not just a story about one journey. It's three journeys. It's three types of people on a path for joy, but only one type of person finds it. Which one are you?
In Christian circles you may hear people talking about the need to be "salt and light". But what does it actually mean to be "salt and light" as a Christian? What is the role and mission of the Christian in the city in which they live? In this message, Pastor Jeremy examines what it means to be salt and light in our city by understanding 1) The Condition of the World and 2) The Christian in the world.
In Part 4 of our series on Worship, Pastor Jeremy takes a look at the three things we need to know to shine the light of our hope in Christ. Our worship is not only tied to our fears, but also to our hopes. Because we live out what we hope in. As Christians we are to live a life that ascribes ultimate worth to God by shining the light of our hope in Him. All of life is an outshining of what we hope in.
If we were honest, we desperately want to know that we are safe and secure from pain, harm, and harassment. Many times, however, we functionally live like God is unaware and unconcerned with the needs in our life. In this message, Scott Sjoblom shows us Jesus, the Great Shepherd, who sees our need, is deeply concerned with our need, and meets all of our needs!
