Today’s Sermon

Prayer, Care, Share
Pastor John Lowder

Colossians 4:2-6

As we kick off our 90 Days of Prayer (May 19-August 18), it’s important that we start by remembering we are God’s ambassadors left here on earth to be witnesses for Him to the world around us.  But how do we actually lead someone not just to know Christ but to WANT to know Christ?

Today’s Sermon

By the Grace of God
Pastor Ben Lorenz

Ephesians 2:8-10

Verse 8 and 9 are some of the most well known verses and clearly highlight God’s grace to us. Then, verse 10 comes in and talks about all the works we are created for, seemingly to be a different topic then verses 8-9. Are these verses saying different things, or are they more connected than we might think?

Today’s Sermon

You Are With Christ
Pastor John Lowder

Ephesians 2:6-7

The Bible clearly tells us that without Christ we are dead in our transgressions and sins, completely deserving eternity apart from God. But our salvation in Christ not only takes us from death to life but also puts us in a very important position – WITH Christ! What does it really mean to be WITH Christ? Why does it matter? Tune in to find out.

You Are Alive
Pastor John Lowder

Ephesians 2:4-5

It’s hard to appreciate our salvation if we don’t understand just how dire our situation was without Christ.  But unless we understand what Jesus Christ accomplished in our life, we won’t appreciate it enough.  You were dead.  Now you are alive.  What does this all really mean?
