2018.11.11 - Drew Karschner - "Ratification" Most people have heard the expression “It's not over until the fat lady sings.” That was true about the gospel. Jesus was dead and lying in a tomb, and it felt over, but it wasn’t. Our future literally hung in the balance for three days. Then Jesus’ payment for ours sins was ratified when He defeated death and rose from the grave. Romans 5:8

Redemption

2018.11.04 - Drew Karschner - "Redemption" Everything in life has value, and that value is determined by what someone is willing to pay for it. The problem for mankind is that sin made us not very valuable. But God saw us differently and paid a steep price for us, even though we are unworthy. 2 Corinthians 5:21

Rejected

2018.10.28 - Drew Karschner - "Rejected" No one likes to be rejected, but we all have been at some point in our lives. Whether it was part of the job search process, an old boyfriend or girlfriend, or not getting picked for the team, we all know how rejection feels. But all of us are born rejecting God through Adam’s sin. Yet despite our rejection of Him, He has chosen to love us. Genesis 1

Keep It Fresh

2017.08.20 - Aaron Hixson - "Keep it Fresh" We've all gotten something new and exciting, only to discover that - after a while - it gets old. Boring. Blah. But what if that happened in our spiritual lives? What if the most important reality in our world became... boring? Old news? In this section of Paul's letter to the believers in Colossae, he gives them the foundation for keeping the good news from becoming old news. Colossians 2:1-23
