“Saul: Character Counts”; The Wisdom of Kings
As Israel’s first king, Saul had the potential to establish a powerful dynasty. But his insecurity and recklessness kept him from doing what God asked of him. Even though he ruled for 42 years, his deep character flaws cost him everything and caused others to suffer. What can we learn from Saul’s mistakes?

    “Why the World Needs You”; The Wisdom of Kings
    The world needs hope, good news and restoration. The world needs what God offers, but most don’t believe it. Every believer is here for a reason: to glorify God and benefit others. Do you know why the world needs you?

    “Delusional Darius”, Faith in the Real World: Part 6

    When many of us look at familiar stories in the bible we can often miss huge parts of what is going on and rely on what we already know. This Sunday we are going to explore the Story of Daniel and the Lions’ Den, but not from the perspective of Daniel.  We are going to get to know Darius and how Daniel’s story changed his life.

    “Take the High Road”, Faith in the Real World: Part 5
    Daniel did not allow his mistreatment to make him bitter or keep him from serving with truth and dignity. Living for God means we don't worry about fame.

    “Making Good News Good”, Faith in the Read World: Part 4
    Daniel 4 records what happens when the powerful and proud King Nebuchadnezzar allowed his exaggerated ego to grow unchecked: disaster! His servant Daniel had good news to share, but speaking up could cost his life. Would he take the risk, or hide the truth

    “Paying the Price of Faith”, Faith in the Real World: Part 3
    In an effort to consolidate his power, King Nebuchanezzar arranged a massive pagan worship event. But three brave Hebrew men refused to participate, and were thrown into the flames as punishment. But they were “cool under pressure”. Their commitment to integrity resulted in a miraculous rescue and praise to God from a most unlikely source!

    “Keep Calm and Give God the Credit”, Faith in the Real World: Part 2
    The King of Babylon made impossible demands, and Daniel and his friends were about to be executed for no fault of their own. How would God rescue them from this impossible situation? As the only God-fearing servants of the king, what would happen if they leaned into faith and prayer while others scrambled?

    “Look for the Win-Win”, Faith in the Real World: Part 1
    What is “real world faith”? It’s a confidence in Jesus that allows us to carry our convictions into the workplace, the classroom, the neighborhood, or the ball park. It results in a counter-cultural lifestyle that is gracious with people and glorifies God. It might make you “weird” by the world’s standards, but empowers you to perform with excellence, integrity and honor.
    Scripture Verses: Daniel 1:1-21

    “Friends”, Enough: Part 11
    Series: Enough
    Have you ever had friends that you knew you count on and who were supportive? Paul had friends as ministry partners that he could send out on his behalf. They were supportive and encouraging. What kind of friends are we to others? We can be friends who are trustworthy, encouraging and supporting as we follow Jesus together.
    Sermon Verses: Colossians 4:7-18
