Join us on Sundays at 9:00 and 10:45 AM for our spring sermon series, Action: The Gospel of Mark. We believe your life will be changed by the lessons we’ll learn together in this adventure-driven, action-packed series on the life of Christ.
When we bought our home there was a kumquat tree in our backyard. It was planted between two other trees that were taking up all the light. This was causing the the kumquat tree to struggle for life, and we ended up removing it from our yard. In Mark 11 we read that Jesus told a fig tree it would never bear fruit again. This destructive miracle was a sign to Israel that they had failed to bear fruit. Jesus’ ensuing actions in the Temple were a sign of Israel’s internal corruptness. Listen in Pastor Neal Benson shares about our need to have faith in God from Mark 11:12-33.
This week we dive into Mark 11:1-11 and see Jesus make a triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Listen in as Pastor Joel Pyron speaks how we can best respond to Jesus as King.
Have you ever had a painful, uncomfortable, or life-changing disease? In Mark 10:46-52 we encounter a man who is simply known as the son of his father. He is begging on the side of the road and shouts out for Jesus to have mercy on him. Being blind would have hindered his lifestyle, income, and ability for relationship, but that all changes when he stands in the presence of Jesus and asks for healing. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson shares how Jesus beings the wholeness we desire.
All of us encounter teachable moments in life. Some people have a humble heart and are ready to receive a teaching. Others struggle with how that teaching impacts their life. In Mark 10:32-45, we see Jesus continue to point His gaze toward Jerusalem. During this road trip, Jesus uses the time to teach the disciples a few poignant lessons. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson shows us how Jesus saved us so we can serve others.
Divorce rates, commitment in marriage, raising children, and worship - what do all of these have in common? In Mark 10:1-31 Jesus addresses these different topics, and the common thread is that through Jesus, all things are possible. A marriage that seems impossible is possible through Jesus. Overcoming pain from divorce is possible through Jesus. Parenting is possible. Leaving an insurmountable sin, is impossible in your own strength, but totally possible through Jesus. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches on how all things are possible with God.
It's easy to get so busy living in the here and now that we forget to think about the future; however, Jesus wants us to live with eternity in mind. Listen in as Pastor Neal teaches on Mark 9:30-50 and explains how our eternal destination should drive our ambition.
This week our Mark sermon series picks up in Mark 9:14 with an account of Jesus healing a demon-possessed boy. If you're struggling with faith, we hope you'll listen in as guest speaker, Joey Ross, talks about exercising stick-to-itiveness in our faith.
We're five days into the new year, and so excited to resume our Mark sermon series with a message from Mark 9 about the transfiguration. Listen in as Pastor Neal encourages us to allow the presence of Jesus to transform us.
Advent means the arrival or coming of something. In Luke 2, angels announced the advent of Christ with great joy to a group of shepherds. The shepherds immediately went and found the Christ child. Their reaction to the news of Christ's coming shows us that Jesus is the real gift to be excited about. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches on Luke 2:8-20.
Pastor Doug Colby from Ventura Missionary Church continues our Home for Christmas sermon series today with a message about hope. As we look at Romans 15:13 and Luke 2:25-32, we'll see that we true hope is not found in maybes or possibilities or plans or potential, but in the person of Jesus Christ.
