The Truth Shall Set You Free
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

February 16/17

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 8:31-47

Have you ever seen a picture of an elephant held in place by a small rope tied to its leg? It makes no sense. This enormous creature could break free with an easy tug, yet there it stands. I'm told that as a young animal the elephant is conditioned to "know" that this rope has the ability to restrain it. Later in life, it is a lie alone that holds the elephant captive. This weekend as we hear Jesus confront the lies his listeners believed, we'll consider how the Devil seeks to deceive us as well. In the midst of the real challenges in life, our prayer is that we will encounter Jesus and learn how to live as his true disciples, set free indeed.

Embrace the Moment

October 13/14

Speaker: Clint Mix

Scripture: Ephesians 5:14-20

Embrace the Moment!

Our pace of life seems to have accelerated from busy to frenetic.  In the midst of the overwhelming speed of our day to day existence Scripture reminds us to “make the
most of every opportunity” or “embrace the moment.” While we all like the notion that we would have sensitivity and margin to do this, the reality is that life continually
gets in the way.

God calls us to live counter-cultural lives where we are as generous with others as God is with us - including our use of time. As challenging as it sounds, we can embrace the moments God gives us and slow our pace of life at the same time! Join us as we go deeper into The Foothills Way with the our next series Extravagant Generosity. Let’s follow God’s wisdom and choose to Embrace the Moment!
