If you missed Mark Tindall speak last Sunday, this is your chance to hear it! Mark delivers a passionate teaching on,"Bad Religion". How the church has made a name for itself in ways that do not represent who Jesus was or is. Mark preaches from the book of Luke, chapter 11. In this passage, Jesus is eating with the religious leaders. Jesus calls th…
 
Sometimes we get caught up in the rat race of life. We forget that a big part of our purpose is to "go and make disciples." In this teaching, Christian urges us to take hold of the command Jesus gave each of us, "go and make disciples". Christian highlights how important church community is within that command. Encouraging each of us to take hold o…
 
When you think of what God would say to you, is it full of love? Is it based on your performance? Is it always negative? Would he point out your flaws? If we could hear God speaking over our lives, what would he say? Does the Bible give us any clues? Listen as Christian describes the amazing reality of God's heart for his children.…
 
In Acts 21, we read about Paul's tremendous faith in God. A courageous faith that enables him to be willing to be imprisoned and even die for the sake of sharing Jesus. How did Paul’s faith compel him to take that risk? How can we have faith like that today? In this teaching, Christine shares how we can grow in taking risks for Jesus. How we can sa…
 
As we read through the middle of the book of Acts we begin to see the Apostles beset by all kinds of resistance and setbacks. We also see them leaning into God, and finding out that the He often has purposes beyond their immediate comprehension. And as they learn to trust him more fully, they get to discover that the end of the story is often far g…
 
In this Acts series we are being challenged to, "GO". This teaching drives the message home for each of us as we are challenged to listen to the Holy Spirit and love on those in need. Are we open to serving those who need help? Are we willing to give of our finances when we see someone or hear of someone with a financial need? It sounds basic but i…
 
We are "On Call" as we go about our day and in every aspect of life. As we are doing the mundane in our lives, are we asking the Holy Spirit to lead us? We go to the store, work, interact with our kids, our family, our friends and are we asking the Holy Spirit to give us opportunities in those relationships? In this passionate teaching, you will he…
 
Many of us have experienced the telemarketer Christian. You know who I mean! That Christian who means SO well, but their approach to sharing the "Good News" is one that feels very confrontational. What if we have had it wrong all along? What if our approach is to be one of loving the person first? Not rebuking, preaching at or challenging the perso…
 
Michela Brownell gives practical ways we can open our hearts and homes to those around us. Whether it's in an actual home, an invitation to coffee or a walk, she explains why it is so powerful for others when we do so. Listen to the loving and open heart of Michela as she delivers His message!Michela Brownell による
 
This three week series is extremely challenging. Do we make time to open our home to others? Are we seeking out those who believe, think and act differently than us and then being invitational? Not with a heart that,"We must win them over!" But, with the heart attitude that we can listen and extend a place of love and acceptance. Jesus is fully abl…
 
Many Christians believe that hospitality is a gift. And while that may be partially true, it doesn't mean those of us who don't embody this gift get off the hook! In Jesus' time of ministry His "home" was whatever town the Father sent Him. He relied on the hospitality of others. He challenged the boundaries of the "social norms" and sought those on…
 
Often times, we keep on trudging through life. We are unaware we are in need of God to come into our situations and deliver us. In this teaching, Christian leads us through Psalm 107. In doing so, each of us can recognize we need our Deliverer to come in and lead us. Today, let your Deliverer into every space in your heart.…
 
That slogan speaks quite a bit in three words. If you are like me, you hear that and think," Oh yes, I will! I will push myself! I will get the finish line! Even if I have to army crawl I will make it!" We apply these three words in many areas of our lives. But, when it comes to our faith....do we? Take some time and listen to this teaching. Maybe …
 
The word "confession" can carry a stigmatism. It can feel negative. It can feel as if something huge is about to take place and not in a good way! Confession, is the opposite of these things. Confession should be seen as freedom. You have been held hostage by a wrong doing and now you have the opportunity to confess your wrong(s). Once you do, then…
 
Ever need someone to tell you like it is? That's what you will hear when you listen to Christian speak about Saul. Once Saul was murdering and hunting down Christians.

"Self control", applies to so many aspect of our daily lives. From how we act in a traffic jam to how we react in our relationships.

Have you ever had a "faithful" friend? That friend you can text or call and you know no matter what, they will drop everything and run to be right by you side? They would do whatever was within their power to rush to your aid! They are consistent, loving, assume the best of you even when circumstances may say differently, they are compassionate. An…
 
How do you define "goodness" or "being good"? Many of us take the word "good", we toss it and turn it until it meets our own definition. The Bible gives us a way to define what it means to be "good". To fully embrace this fruit of the Spirit, we need to look in scripture. There we will find the tools and instructions on how to live out what it mean…
 
Gentleness seems like such a subjective fruit of the Spirit. The way I demonstrate gentleness and the way I think gentleness should be given to others, may look vastly different in the way you demonstrate gentleness. Your idea of gentleness might be, coming alongside someone who is suffering and being a friend. Maybe in your eyes, gentleness (in th…
 
Are you nice? Or are you kind? Is there a difference? Listen, as Christian takes us along the journey of Naomi and Ruth. In this relationship we see the kindness of Ruth demonstrated in her unyielding love for her mother in law, Ruth. Ruth's kindness helped change the course of their lives. What can we learn from Ruth?…
 
How do we have patience? Not just situational patience. But, how do we obtain patience so that it becomes part of who we are?

What is the status of your patience? Is it only situat…

Joy. One of the most challenging fruits of the Spirit could quite possibly be, joy. Joy is not an emotion like being happy or exuberant. Joy is a trait that is fostered and developed. Think about it. Do you have joy in the challenges that come your way? Do you know that even in the midst of following Jesus down the toughest roads, that there is joy…
 
When we look at the list of the fruits of the Spirit, love seems to be the one that holds them all together. This week, as a congregation, we are going to be focusing on leading with love.

As Christians we are called to be "disciples". But, what does that really mean? If we choose to follow Jesus, as His "disciples", we are asked to "take up your cross", "deny yourself" and "follow Me(Jesus)". How do we apply this to our lives? How do we live our lives keeping in step with those commands? Listen, as Christian challenges himself and e…
 
Christianity stands or falls on the resurrection. What evidence is there for this miraculous event? You've probably heard theories against the resurrection, but what evidence do those theories have? In this teaching Josh covers several theories against the resurrection, and how we can thoughtfully respond. This teaching will strengthen your faith a…
 
Did Jesus actually claim to be God, or was that something that his followers added to his story over the centuries? Is his claim to divinity a modern invention that we've layered on top because of our religious hopes, or did Jesus actually think he was God? This week we explore evidence from the earliest followers as well as what Jesus actually sai…
 
It's nothing new that the credibility of the Bible is constantly challenged. What could be new is your stance on the validity of the Bible. Have you had doubts about the accuracy of the Bible? Have you wondered if all your faith is resting on a book that might be wrong? Listen, as Christian digs deep and challenges us not to be afraid to discuss th…
 
As we look at the historical Jesus, there are two questions we must answer. Did he actually exist? And what did he mean by what he taught? In this teaching we will attempt to offer some ideas around these questions that will hopefully encourage you and strengthen your faith!Christian Dunn による
 
Do you think your past disqualifies you from a deep relationship with Jesus? Do you think the fears and anxiety you struggle with, cancel out your opportunity to be used by Him? We are the ones who put regulations and rules around people. We make it so complicated, but Jesus just asks us to come to Him. If we allow Him to, He is ready and willing t…
 
What happens when we make ourselves fully available for God? It doesn't have to be the major events like saying yes to a missions trip or selling all of your possessions! It is living in the day in and day out life where God wants to hear us say, "Yes!". Do we respond when we feel that nudge from God to tell a co-worker, "I will pray for you". Do w…
 
Today's culture is, arguably, obsessed with safety. We are constantly given ways to stay safe financially, emotionally and physically. Many of these are valid and true. However, has this thinking crept into our faith? Listen, as Christian preaches about what it means to follow Jesus. It was never meant to be a cushy life. One filled with so many ca…
 
Alison Groenendyk, from Chester Springs Vineyard Church, gives a compelling teaching on prayer. Listen, as she speaks on the tension of believing in a good and perfect God and trying to understand why He doesn't always answer our prayers. Alison shows us in scripture how even Jesus prayed and wanted His "cup taken" yet, still He had to go to the cr…
 
Praying for one another is vulnerable. It means we have to be transparent and allow someone into a place in our hearts. That place may be wounded, depressed, anxious, grieving, worried, stressed about your job/health/family or struggling with sin. It feels easier to just go it alone and pray on our own! In this teaching, Christian uses scripture to…

Today, we talk about some practical ways that prayer can help us grow and get closer to Jesus.…
 
Prayer. A topic Christians discuss often. But, why is it SO important? If you are a new believer in Jesus, have been for decades or you are just testing out what this faith is all about....Prayer is for you! It is a muscle we have to exercise. Not many people enjoy those taxing workouts that push you to your limits. But, we all love the results IF …
 
How would you define your faith? One that's rooted and growing? One that's just Sunday morning? Or maybe your faith is something that you have not really given much attention to? You say you are a Christian, but what does that really mean to you? In this teaching, Christian challenges us to have our faith deeply rooted in scripture and truth. It is…

Think listening to podcasts is enough? Maybe you think grabbing a live worship event online will meet your aching needs? As Christians, we are called to more. Since, the beginning of the church, meeting together has always been a priority. In fact, meeting together was often dangerous for the people of the church! Despite that fact, believers met t…
 
Church isn't supposed to be a task we fill each week or for many of us, just a few times a year. We have placed church on our, "to do" list. That is not what Jesus intended the church to be. He intended "church", to be a place where believers and non believers, could come with all of our baggage. A place we can find healing, community and to be cha…
 
As Christians, we are supposed to lead lives that are, "in the world, but not of the world..." We are supposed to be present in the world around us yet somehow challenge (in love and truth) the messages we are inundated with each day. We have taken a back seat and have allowed the church to be filled with so much "world", that the church is no long…
 
Think you have better things to do with your time than go to church? You tell yourself, "I will listen to a podcast, read my Bible, or..." But, that isn't the same as being PART of a church family. We all need a church family. A family, that can be with us through all of the highs and lows in life. Where we can grow in the knowledge of scripture. W…
 
Too often, we tell ourselves, " I am not forgiving that person, until they say they are sorry for what they did!" As a follower of Jesus, forgiveness is required on our part, even if the other person never recognizes their offense and asks us for forgiveness. Our forgiveness of others is rooted in the fact that Jesus forgave us! Col. 3:12-14, " The…
 
Feeling stuck in your relationships? Too often, we respond to those around us because of how we were raised or our own dysfunctions. We keep responding in the same ways and get stuck in relationship ruts!
