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.

Livin' Life Faithfully

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

June 24 & 25, 2017

Scripture: Ephesians 1:3-14

I have a little notice on my office wall that reminds me of the seven unique roles I carry in life. I’m a follower of Jesus / husband / Dad / a friend / a leader / a preacher and a servant. I have a little mission statement for each role. For example, as a father my mission is this:  “I resolve to pray for and nurture the personal growth of my children – seeking to model for them the wonder of knowing God and serving others." But even more important than each of these roles is trying to figure out my identity for who I am and how it must shape how I live and what I love. This weekend, we will explore further our identity as sons and daughters of God, because we’ll never know how to live until we know who we are! 

This will be a very special weekend and I so look forward to being together!
