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.
Our world is in a global pandemic. People are suffering from job loss. Parents are learning what it means to be a teacher in their home. Online school is figuring out how to launch. Grocery stores are oddly empty and surprisingly full at the same time. People want to touch but don’t want to get sick. We are experiencing suffering like we have never seen before. In the Gospel of Mark we read that Jesus also suffered. Jesus was abandoned by His closest friends. Jesus was wrongly convicted of crimes He never commit. Jesus was beaten and mocked. In this life we will suffer; you can suffer with Jesus or without Jesus. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches about how Jesus is the Son of God.
Listen in as guest speaker, Doug Meye, continues our Mark sermon series with a message from Mark 14:1-26 on sacrificial love. We'll learn how sacrificial love for Jesus' sake leaves a lasting legacy.
When you turn on the news, check your Facebook feed, or turn on the TV it seems that some people think we are in the end times. In Mark 13, the disciples ask Jesus to help them understand the End Times. Jesus breaks His response into a couple sections. First, Jesus talks about false signs about the end. Then Jesus gives the disciples real signs that the Temple will be destroyed soon. Finally Jesus teaches about what to look for when He returns. Jesus used their question to teach us about His second coming. We invite you to open your Bible to Mark 13 and listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches about the End Times.
When a city does a road project that results in a new traffic pattern for drivers to follow, it’s common to see a road sign that says, “New Traffic Pattern.” As we continue to study the Gospel of Mark, it’s clear that Jesus is inviting us to use a new traffic pattern in our lives. In Mark 12:28-44 Jesus teaches on three subjects – the greatest commandment, the divinity and humanity of the Messiah, and giving. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches on how to love, think, and give more like Jesus.
Guest speaker Joey Ross joins us again with a message from Mark 12:1-27 called "Power, Politics, and Prenups." Listen in and learn how Jesus reveals his radical grace in three different situations.
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.
