40 Days of Purpose
No matter who you are: rich or poor; famous or not; woman or man; single or married; child, teen, or adult; preacher or lay person – everyone one of us wants to know “Why am I alive? Does my life matter? Is there a purpose in my life? And where do I find the answers to these questions?”
Our church went through “40 Days of Purpose” using Rick Warren’s book “Purpose Driven Life”. We explored what the Bible has to say, for it is our owner’s manual from the One that created us and loves us.
A Study of the Book of Revelation
What are you scared of? What frightens you?
Spiders? Snakes? Bats? Dark rooms? Loud noises? Thunderstorms?
There are a bunch of people afraid of the Book of Revelation. It’s frightening. It’s confusing. It’s dire. Best just to stay away from it.
But the Book of Revelation is the only book in the Bible that promises a blessing to those who read and obey it’s message.
We looked at the Book of Revelation from a Wesleyan perspective and found the praise, predictions, and purpose in the book, then strengthen for the days ahead.
Kathy Kitchel shared a message from Ephesians 2:4-9.

Beloved of God
Many Christians read their Bible, and when they find a verse that really speaks to them, they will underline or highlight the verse, in part as a marker of Scriptural truth, as well as a reminder of God’s revelation to them. John 3:16 – oh, yeah, that’s underlined, and a host of others.
Read the book of 1 John, and you will find a host of Scriptures that speak straight to the heart of the believer. And why? These are words to the Beloved of God.
We studied this short, but incredible book, to discover who we are in God’s eyes, and what we must do in response.
The Disciples’ Journey to Easter
With our personal self-denial and repentance during Lent, we are on a journey towards the Cross and the Resurrection. We do this as we reflect on the events nearly 2,000 years ago.
But there was a group of people at actually walk that path towards that fateful Friday and glorious Sunday. They were the disciples. And though they really didn’t understand what was going on at the time, it was a completely life-changing experience.
We joined the journey with the followers of Jesus during our series “The Disciples’ Journey to Easter.” We examined each of the disciples to discover that Jesus is teaching us through them.
April 18 “Judas” Audio Text
I don’t know about you, but I want to grow: grow mentally for myself, relationally with my wife, and spiritually with God. I want to be that child of God for whom is said when I die, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” And that takes commitment.
For two weeks, we committed ourselves to the spiritual topic of “Growing.” We spent time getting serious about our spiritual growth as we approached the season of Lent.
Fishin’ with Jesus
We looked at how things change when we go fishin’ with Jesus as Peter, Andrews, James and John did in Luke 5.

Becoming God’s New for You
It’s a New Year, and often the New Year helps us think about what changes we want to see in our lives, our habits, our hobbies, and our future. The New Year helps us focus on what’s more important than what we have allowed to rule our life in the past.
God has a new you in mind. That’s right. God has a new you in mind, a you that looks more and more like His Son Jesus. And we know how much God loves the Son.
As we began 2019, we focused our message series on this: Becoming God’s New for You.
