Following Jesus – Making Disciples – Changing the World

Sermons from November 2015

Walking the Text in Turkey

“Walking the Text in Turkey: Loving God & People as a Counter Cultural Community” – There is nothing like actually visiting New Testament places to make the story of Christianity come alive!  Ken & Jeanie Schneider share about the faith-lessons they learned while walking in the steps of Paul and other first century believers in Turkey.

Wake Up Call

(Luke 12:35-13:9) – Ever been surprised by an unexpected guest?  Well, there’s no ‘guest’ more important for us to be ready to welcome than the Lord Jesus when He comes back to earth.  As disciples, we want to be found ready, faithful, on fire for Him when he comes!

Life Beyond Greed & Worry

(Luke 12:13-34) –  “Greed” (the pursuit of ‘more’ earthly luxuries) and “Worry” (the preoccupation with ‘enough’ daily necessities) dominates much of our lives.   Yet, Jesus teaches that our lives are meant for so much more! Instead of ‘storing up’ or ‘stressing out’ about stuff, He calls us to seek first His Kingdom and trust the Father’s provision for His children.

Choosing Faith Over Fear

(Luke 12:4-12) Do we trust and reverence God more than we fear the opinion & opposition of people?  The answer we give to that question  has huge ramifications for our faith!  Jesus modeled for us a life that consistently chose faith over fear – and He call us as His disciples to do the same.
