11-01-2020 - Am I Living A Life That Matters...with Truth
We’re in the series “Am I Living a Life that Matters?” This series is based on the writings of one of Jesus’ friends, the Apostle John. John wrote this letter to the church of the first century to help them know how they could live a life that matters. In this episode, we are in 1 John 4 as we look at living a life that matters with truth.
10-25-2020 - Am I Living A Life That Matters...With Righteousness
We’re in the series, “Am I Living a Life that Matters?” So far, we’ve seen that FELLOWSHIP and LOVE are integral parts of making our lives matter. If we want to live in a way that brings both recognition to God, and significance, meaning and joy to our lives, we need FELLOWSHIP with Christ and His followers, and we must practice a life of LOVE. Today we add a third word to our list of key concepts that make life worthwhile: RIGHTEOUSNESS.
10-18-2020 - Am I Living A Life That Matters… with Love?
We’re in a series called, “Am I Living a Life that Matters?” Last week, if you remember, we discovered that FELLOWSHIP is one of the keys to living a life that matters. Well, now we’re in chapter 2 of 1 John, and there’s another key word to add to FELLOWSHIP. That key word…is LOVE. Love is the second integral part of a living a life that matters. But the emphasis John makes in this chapter is that our love must be the right kind of love.
10-11-2020 - Am I Living A Life That Matters... with Fellowship?
We're beginning a new series today called, "Am I Living A Life That Matters?" I believe most of us want to live a life that matters.

09-27-2020 - Standing By Our Promises

09-06-2020 - Pumped Up and Bummed Out
There are times in our lives where we are pumped up about what's happening. But there are other times that we are just bummed out.

08-30-2020 - Spiritual Renewal

08-02-2020 - Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaias
