    Faith and Hope Part 4 – Noah
    Hebrews 11:7, Genesis 6 and 7:16, Proverbs 4:23, II Peter 3:9 and 13-15
     
    God spoke, and Noah obeyed - despite the craziness of the request. God still speaks today, will we choose to obey so He can work?  Just like now was called to build a boat to save his family from the flood; today we are called to build the church to save the lost from the punishment we all deserve. God is being patient so we can live in a way that helps others to come to Him.

    Faith and Hope Part 2 – Creation and Abel
    Genesis 1:1, Colossians 1:15-18, Hebrews 11:1-4, Genesis 4:1-10, I John 3:11-19, Hebrews 12:24
     
    In part 2 of this series, we see that the Creator of the Universe is the One we place our faith in and we explore the first of many Old Testament examples of faith. Abel gave his best to God and we too can leave a legacy of faith by doing the same. Abel reveals that faith is an external step of obedience, based on our internal hope and relationship with God. 
     
    Not captured in this recording is our introduction with the children's church group. We asked -  if they found a large bouncy ball in the corn field north of church if they would think 1) someone put it there or 2) it grew there on its own. They all agreed that it would be obvious that someone made it and put it there. The same is true with our universe, it has a creator and we have been created by him for a purpose.

    Faith and Hope
    As we launch into a new series looking at Faith and Hope from the 11th chapter of Hebrews, we used this introductory message to provide us with context. The Hebrews were tempted to turn away from their new found faith in Christ because of the persecution they were facing. The Author encourages them to press on and live by faith. 
     
    In the middle of this weeks message we also utilized Hebrews 10:1-14 as a way to prepare our hearts for communion. A beautiful song, sung by Jane Eiker and Samantha Rose Brody, can be heard as our church family spends time examining our hearts before remembering Christ's sacrifice together.

    John 21
     
    The account of Peter's public restoration provides a template for our own ministry. To serve Christ we must yield to His will (not rely on our own ability), love Him (by using our gifts to love others), and follow Him wherever He leads us (and keep on following him).

    In this message we explore the second part of the mission at Community: to build believers. Our hope is to help our church family learn to show God our love, by obeying this commands. This means we need to equip others to love others well. Our hope is to do this by creating a church who depends on Christ and is regularly spending time in his presence through Word intake and prayer intimacy.

    Three Bridges of Christmas
    Matthew 1:1-23 and Luke 2:1-20
     
    As we prepare our hearts to celebrate Christmas we use this message to look at three bridges that can be seen in the Christmas story. 
     
    The bridge that Jesus builds between the Old Testament and Jesus the Messiah. 
    The bridge Jesus builds between people and our Holy God through the forgiveness of our sins.
    The bridge we are called to make to others by telling about the good news of Jesus.

    Philippians – message series Conclusion
    Series: Philippians
    Philippians and Luke 2:8-11
     
    This message serves as the conclusion of our 12 week study through the letter of Philippians. 
     
    "If Jesus is your source of joy, your joy can never be taken away from you."

    Philippians 4:10-20, Hebrews 13:5 and 7
     
    "Regular giving tells God that He is first and that nothing we posses is more important than Him." 
     
    In this message we explore the gift of giving.

    • vs. 11-13 - Contentment

    Philippians – Part 11 (4:2-9)
    Series: Philippians
    Philippians 4:2-9 and Matthew 6:25-34
     
    As Paul brings the letter to the Philippians to a close he addresses a specific conflict in their church, reminding us to be unified in our work for the Gospel. He then addresses an issue that often steals our joy - worry. God reminds us through Paul that we can conquer worry by replacing it with prayer. "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything."  When we pray we experience the true peace of God and that peace will help us mind and heart of joy.

    Pressing on toward the goal! 
     
    Paul reminds us that the Christian life is much like a race. In this message we look at some things that will help us to run our race well. 
    1. Humbly acknowledging that we have not arrived yet, is a starting place.
    2. Devoting ourselves to the race, "forgetting" the past, and keeping our eyes on our goal will help us run well. 
    3. Following faithful examples and not following into the traps of others will help us to persevere. 
    4. Living in light of our true citizenship will give us the perspective to run in every season.

    Philippians 3:1-11 and Luke 15:8-10 
     
    All is worthless compared to knowing Christ. In this message we see that our confidence must be found in Christ alone and not in ourselves. He alone is the means by which we are saved. Do you know about Jesus or do you really know him?
