Outside - In (pt 1)

July 28, 2021

Chris Boone was molested at age 7. He learned at a young age to have a ‘church-face’ to keep up appearances that everything was okay, seeking to feel loved, cherished, and accepted. Two and a half years ago, Chris found himself addicted to drugs, mentally ill, and in a troubled marriage. After being kicked out of his 6th rehab stay, he was standing outside after midnight with everything he owned on his back when he got on his knees. This incredible story of redemption, how Chris found love and acceptance will leave you speechless.

The Waiting is the Hardest Part (pt 1)

July 26, 2021

Tom Petty said it best “The Waiting is the Hardest Part.” While we are waiting on God, sometimes the enemy lies and tells us that God isn’t there or that He doesn’t care when He’s not responding. But why do we have to wait? 2 Corinthians 5:7 says “For we live by faith and not by sight. That’s when the rubber hits the road, doesn’t it? God is more interested in our character than our comfort. Join us for today’s broadcast as Greg reminds us there are things we can learn during a season of waiting.

Fatal Words (pt 2)

July 22, 2021

Your words and thoughts are more powerful than you think. Proverbs 13:3 says “Guard your words and you’ll guard your life but if you don’t control your tongue, it will ruin everything.” The words you speak can give life or can take life away. David asked God to put a guard on his lips.

Ephesians 4:29 says “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs that they may benefit those who listen.” This is not an easy task. Tune in to today’s broadcast for some encouragement!

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Folks, that’s just a bunch of scoopala.” - Jimmy Fields went to be with Jesus in 2017 but his legacy lives on through his message “Fatal Words.”

When God Seems Distant (pt 1)

When God Seems Distant (pt 1)

July 5, 2021

Do you feel like your prayers have been going straight to God’s voicemail? When life is uncertain and you’ve been praying for a long, long time, it might feel difficult to worship God. Where is He? Even David frequently complained of God’s apparent absence in his life, even asking “Why have you abandoned me God?” but we know that God never left David. He’s not left you, either. Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
