    Weighed Down: Overcoming Pride
    Series: Weighed Down
    We're  looking at another weight that can damage our relationship with God and with others. It can also give us a distorted view of ourselves throughout each day of our lives. The weight we'll be exploring together will be "Pride." Pride happens when we place ourselves as the center of our focus rather than God. One of Satan’s best tools to move us away from God is to set our focus on ourselves. He did it in the Garden of Eden and has continued to do so through every generation. Proverbs 16:18-19 tells us that "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud." We also find that God opposes the proud. In fact, pride is sin in our lives because it focuses on SELF rather than on God. There are many passages throughout Bible that address the dangers of pride. We will look at several of these together. One example we will explore that will give us a clear illustration of pride in contrast with humility is in Luke 18:9-14.

    We're continuing our series on "The Core" values of Refuge Church. Today we'll be focusing on "Intentional Unity".

According to John 17, it is one of the aspects of the church that draws the world towards believing. Listen in as we explore what Godly unity looks like...

    The Core: Messy Ministry
    Series: The Core
    We're continuing our series through our Core Values! Last week we had the privilege to explore some key foundational truths to everything we do as a church.  Today we will be in Mark 2:13-17 as we discover that "Messy Ministry" is a necessary part of church life. We cannot fake it until we make it. We cannot put on a mask and pretend that everything is okay when it's not. There is no such thing as un-messy ministry. We have to allow vulnerability and a willingness to meet people at their needs. This is exactly what Jesus did. Listen in as explore "Messy Ministry" & how vulnerability enhances our bonds as a church...

    Proclaim: Opposition & Opportunity
    Series: Proclaim
    Sometimes things don’t go as planned. No matter how faithful you are to God, no matter how much attention to detail you put into your next step, the unexpected can still happen, and you can find yourself far from where you thought you’d be. This is the case in Acts 16 for the Apostle Paul and Silas. How should we react to opposition? What if that opposition comes when we're following God and sharing the Gospel? Listen in as we explore how we respond to "Opposition and Opportunity"...
