Following Jesus – Making Disciples – Changing the World

“For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.”          (2 Corinthians 4:5)

Dealing with Doubts

Luke 7:11-35 This week is all about “Dealing with Doubts”.  In our faith-walk, we’ll all face times when our expectations of God are challenged by our experiences in this world.  We may even find ourselves asking, “Where are you in the midst of all this Lord?”  If that has ever been your experience, you’re not alone!  As we’ll see in our study, the Lord gives us the assurance we need to trust him, even when our circumstances…

Tasting New Wine

Luke 5:36-39 Today celebrate Jesus – our “certain Savior” – and learn from Him how to receive the “New Wine” that He longs to pour abundantly into our lives! We’re not meant to settle for lives defined by complacency or compromise – the Lord has so much more for us than that. What He offers us  – if we will truly receive it – will literally change us forever!
