Words from the Cross: Woman, Here is Your Son
We all want to leave a legacy for this life we're living. We want our life to mean something beyond our time here. Our legacy means considerably more than leaving a financial inheritance for our family. Listen in as we explore one of the ways Jesus cared for his loved ones from on the cross...

    Words from the Cross: A Heart for Faith

    Have you ever struggled with whether or not you’d go to Heaven when you died? There are many people who live without hope of Heaven or without confidence in their relationship with God. This isn’t how God intended our relationship with Him to be in this life. He desires that we know Him personally, even in this life. Listen in as we explore "A Heart for Faith"...

    Words from the Cross: The Cross & Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is defined by Merriam-Webster as...

    • To cease to feel resentment against someone
    • To give up resentment of or claim of requital (retribution or retaliation)
    • To grant relief from payment
    When we forgive someone, we release the debt that is owed & we no longer desire payment from them or desire harm to come to them.
    Listen in as we explore what the Cross has to do with forgiveness...

    Following Jesus: The Call to Follow

    Surrender is defined as yielding yourself to the power of another. Simply put, surrender is faith in action. It’s putting legs to what we say we believe. If we believe that God is really God, then trusting Him with all of our lives should simply back up what we believe. Listen in as we explore "The Call to Follow"...

    Following Jesus: Becoming a Discple
    Many of us know what it’s like to be a fan of someone or something. Many people get excited about cheering for their favorite sports team. Some even wear the gear, but hopefully it doesn’t ruin their day when the team loses... it’s just an experience to be a part of it. That type of excitement is based on that of a fan, not someone who is fully committed to the team. Those who are fully committed are fully invested in the event. Listen in as we explore what it means to not just be a fan but to become a disciple of Jesus Christ...

    The Ultimate Conversation: What Stops Our Prayers?
    For some reason, our prayers are often stopped or blocked. There are times when it feels like our prayers are reaching the ceiling and going no further; times when we are lying face-down on the floor and feel that our prayers are rising no higher than the fibers of the carpet. Listen in as we explore "What Stops our Prayers?"

    The Ultimate Conversation: How Does this Change Me?

    Sometimes in life things don’t make sense by our own reasoning. We view things from our own perspective and most of the time it is a limited perspective. But perspective matters. Sometimes in our lives we don’t understand what is taking place, because we can’t see it from our perspective. But God’s vantage point is totally different. He has a different view of things AND a different understanding of things. This is why it is important for us to constantly talk with Him through Prayer. Listen in as we explore how prayer changes each of us...

    The Ultimate Conversation: What Should I Do When I Pray?

    Sometimes we approach God and are at a loss for words. We’re not exactly sure what to say. We have an idea of prayer based on what has been modeled to us by other people around us. And honestly, some of those models weren’t great. We do the best we can, but sometimes we just don’t understand what to do when we pray. So we don’t do it as much as we should. Listen in as we explore the question "What Should I Do When I Pray?"...

    We are the Church: A New Community

    It is very easy to be a spectator, not get involved, "sit in the cheap seats" and watch from the distance.  It is very easy to come on a Sunday every once in a while and leave as soon as service ends.  Honestly, it is very easy to not be active in the church, to live a life of isolation and never connect with others. Listen in as we explore the importance of community in a church...
