Born for MORE

Peace. Hope. Love. Joy. We have a deep longing for these things in our lives but we often don’t know where to look for them. This Christmas season, find out how you were made to experience them and how Jesus was born to bring them.


Born for HOPE

December 10, 2017
1 Peter 1:3-15

Hope is a powerful thing, yet often we find it hard to grasp. Is it just optimism, wishful thinking? And where does that get us? Could it be possible that hope is something more?

Luke 19:1-10 // Zacchaeus

November 26, 2017

Luke 18:15-17 // Children

LUKE 18:1-8 // Prayer

October 22, 2017

Jesus wants us to understand the importance of persistent prayer. To keep on praying. But for many of us the practice of prayer is a difficult one to persist in, if we are honest. So let us hear from Jesus and be open to obeying what he asks of us.

Can God do some of the same things today, in our time and in our church, as He did in the first church described in Acts 2? The early church devoted themselves to three things. What if we would too?

October 15, 2017

We either have an attitude of gratitude like the one leper or we have an attitude of entitlement like the other 9 who could not even say thanks to Jesus for the gift of their miracle. It’s really a matter of our heart toward God!

LUKE 13:22-30 // Narrow Door

August 27, 2017

There are doorways in life that profoundly shape our future and destiny.

LUKE 12:22-34 // Don't Worry

Worry is something we’re all familiar with.  Yet Jesus is bold enough to command his followers NOT to do it.  Can that be accomplished in our lives - to live worry-free?

LUKE 12:13-21 // Rich Toward God

Banking on your finances for eternal security is a bad investment; instead of storing up treasures on earth, we are going to look at what it means to store up treasures in heaven and be rich toward God.

 

LUKE 12:1-12 // Fear

Fear is a difference maker in our lives. We can be so caught up with the fear of what other people think that we miss what's truly important. Jesus has a better way for us to follow.

 

LUKE 11:37-44 // Problem with Religion

What does it mean to be a “Good Christian”?  Ever wondered what you have to do, how you have to behave, what it should look like?  We’ve got to be careful with that kind of thinking as it can lead us into a mess.  Jesus speaks in a bold way to a group of people who went too far and turned faith into a performance.

LUKE 10:25-37 // Good Samaritan

What is it about us that when we feel compassion for someone we fail to show that compassion for someone? We feel sorry for someone but it seems to end there – no action – no follow through – no loving our neighbor. Let us learn from Jesus what a good neighbor looks like.

LUKE 10:1-24 // Harvest Workers Needed

Q&A with Jesus: Small Group Questions

 

LUKE 9:10-17 // Feeding Thousands

LUKE 7:1-10 // Just Say the Word

LUKE 6:17-49 // Jesus Preaches a Sermon

Jesus preaches the most famous sermon of all time and at the end of his sermon he has a very honest moment as a preacher – his final words should have us all asking some very honest questions.


We all face decisions, some are little ones that we make everyday and some of them are big decisions that cause us to stop in our tracks. Jesus faces a big decision in his life. Let’s watch and learn from Jesus on how he made big decisions.

Luke 4:42-5:11  JESUS GOES FISHING (audio unavailable)

Nelson Chapman // March 12, 2017

This Sunday, we are looking at the story of Jesus calling his first disciples in Luke 5:1-11. As we look at the story of Simon Peter, we can see what it means to know Jesus as he is and follow him as he calls. We will look at what it means to be "all in" as we cast nets into the seas around us.

Jesus Goes Fishing: Small Group Questions

 

Jesus claimed something: He claimed to be God and He backed up that reality with miracles.  This truth confirms in the believer’s heart that no matter what brokenness is in our life, Jesus can heal it - Jesus can do it! 

Jesus Can Do It! Small Group Questions

 

Jesus has always been clear on how precious people are to him and how precious people need to be to his followers – all people. Today we will be seeing a beautiful demonstration on how Matthew shows how deep this went into his heart.

 

There are practices that Jesus did on a regular basis. He did them to keep his heart refreshed so that he could live the life Jesus calls each one of us to live. Today we look at Spiritual Disciplines.

 

There are minor things that we can get stuck on which results in us missing the major thing Jesus wants for our life.  But it will require a level of honesty that many of us will be uncomfortable with and yet it is what all of us require.

Zechariah has had quite the encounter with God that did not go so well and it resulted in Zechariah having 9 months of silence – he could not speak. But then something amazing happens! God’s promise is fulfilled and with that Zechariah is not only able to speak but after 9 months he bursts out singing a song. Zechariah, once the skeptic becomes a worshipper!

The lengths that God went to have us in right relationship with him is a staggering story, a story that many of us would never see coming. But because of our brokenness God planned, God acted, and God has made healing and wholeness available. Good News

It's interesting to watch the world prepare when important people are coming. This year we watched Canada prepare for two members of the Royal Family who were coming to visit, and the United Stares prepare for a new President. This week we are going to see how John the Baptist prepared people to meet Jesus. The preparation looks very different, but the result can be far longer lasting.
