September 1, “Do You Love Me?” – Pastor Ron
What is an essential ingredient for being “all in” for Jesus? We learn what this ingredient is in Jesus’ conversation with Peter in John 21.
Jesus called his disciples to go all in… nothing less. Today’s church has forgotten this costly call to be a Christ-Follower. We’ve traded the truth of the gospel for a token prayer to receive Jesus, but to give up nothing. Pastor Kurt describes Barna’s 10 stops of the typical American and challenges us to resist the tendency to spiritually coast, give up, or walk away. Go All In!

August 11, “SIN CITY: Galatia” – Pastor Kurt
Like most Christians today, the churches in the region of Galatia lacked an understanding of true discipleship. How does Jesus expect us to react to what His Word has to say? God does have an expectation for us to keep growing and determining to be “all in… no turning back.”
August 4, “SIN CITY: Colosse” – Pastor Kurt
How many apps do you have? People add apps to their mobile devices all the time. Some of us tend to treat Jesus like an app. Paul warns the church in Colosse about incorporating false teaching into Truth. Pastor Kurt encourages us to make Jesus more than an app among many apps.
July 28, “SIN CITY: Philippi” – Pastor Kurt
Outwardly we may do the right things, but inside there can be a the sin of pride and selfishness that hinders our faith. Paul encourages the joy filled church in Philippi to not go to ruins by their lack of being considerate toward others. Our actions and attitudes, including motives, must BE like Jesus.

July 14, “SIN CITY: Corinth – Part 2” – Pastor Kurt
The images and nuances of sexuality are at every corner. What does the Bible have to say about appropriate expressions of sex? In this message Pastor Kurt offers an explanation and response to the cultural shift regarding sexuality. He also reveals God’s great sex guide.
July 7, “SIN CITY: Corinth” – Pastor Kurt
We may know Vegas as Sin City, but in ancient times Corinth was known for its worldly and wild ways. How was the church to live in such a sexually permissive culture? Unfortunately, they were not much different. Paul wrote, “I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on among you” (I Cor. 5:1a). Today’s culture is similar to Corinth. Will the church also?
