Certainties in Uncertain Times (September 6 – October 26)
Paul writes to the Philippians while house arrest in Rome, awaiting his trial. He has endured much hardship along the way and while in Rome. He himself is living in an uncertain time. He writes to the Philippians who need to hear a message of certainty. There are external and internal threats they face. Paul’s joy-filled letter showcases the grace and faithfulness of God in Christ, and calls them “live up to what we have already attained” (3:16)—to a life of joy, purpose, confidence, and gratitude.
There is much good counsel for us in our uncertain times to learn as we hear the Spirit speak through his servant in chains.

Unlikely Heroes (August 23 – August 30)

Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe (July 25 – August 17)
People don’t set out to build their faith on myths. But somehow falsehoods keep showing up in the way many Christians think about life and God. Their beliefs are assumed by many to be rock-solid truth—until life proves they’re not. The tragic result is often a spiritual disaster—confusion, feelings of betrayal, distrust of Scripture, and a loss of faith or anger toward both God and church.

The answer, as always, is the power of the truth of God’s Word. In this practical worship series, based on a book by Larry Osborne, we will look at some widely held beliefs that are both dumb (because they’re not based on God’s Word) and dangerous. Get ready to be shocked, relieved and inspired by the truth of God’s Word.

Finding God in Times of Trouble (May 31 – June 21)
Troubling times are inevitable. What tools do you have for dealing with those troubles? Habakkuk serves as a perfect example in the Bible of someone going through troubling times and doesn’t understand why God would allow it. Even though we know little about the prophet himself, we can relate to him on a deep level.

Mind the Gap: Warnings from the World (August 25 – October 6)

Reclaiming Practical Grace (July 27 – August 19)
Grace is not something that just “sits on a shelf” in the life of a Christian. It’s a part of our everyday lives. For 4 weeks, join us as we “reclaim” practical grace for our lives in this world and with one another.
Pastor Zachary Pudlo  |   Reclaiming Practical Grace  |  Luke 18:9-14
 
We all have a deep want to be esteemed by others. And often times, that’s what we spend our time and effort doing…gaining other’s approval. God’s approval is the only thing that matters. By his grace in Jesus, that has already been credited to us. And that changes our entire outlook on life!
Pastor Zachary Pudlo  |   Reclaiming Practical Grace  |  1 Peter 1:6-9, 3:13-18
 
People handle suffering in many different ways. God gives us a rational purpose for suffering. But he also gives us emotional support for suffering. In his grace-filled love, he went through the flames of hells so we wouldn’t have to. And in doing so he accomplished the greatest blessing of all, our salvation. Knowing this helps us go through the “little fires” we face on a regular basis.
Pastor Zachary Pudlo  |   Reclaiming Practical Grace  |  Matthew 18:21-35
 
It is impossible to give what you don’t have. If you don’t know how much you have been forgiven, you will never be good at forgiving. Daily reminding ourselves of the depth of our sinfulness and the even deeper depth of God’s grace is what gives us the resource to forgive others.
Pastor Zachary Pudlo  |   Reclaiming Practical Grace  |  1 Corinthians 13:1-8
 
The love of God in us has nothing to do with our abilities or even spiritual gifts. It has everything to do with our motivation. We can’t love with selflessness unless we first have been selflessly loved. God’s grace alone does that for us.
