This week we continue our Jonah sermon series with a look at Jonah 2, where we find Jonah in the belly of a big fish. While inside the fish, Jonah cries out to God and repents of his sin. Watch and listen as Ryan LaFata teaches us that God saves those who cry out to Him.
Obeying God can be one of the most rewarding and scary acts of a person’s life. Think about a time in your life where you made a big decision knowing that God was guiding you every step of the way. It could have been a cross-country move for a job., attending a Bible study, or asking your future spouse on a date. For four weeks we’re studying the life of the Old Testament prophet Jonah. Many of us are familiar with Jonah, but if you’ve never heard of him you'll enjoy this amazing story of the love of God. Jonah was a prophet in Israel. God called him to go to a wicked city to tell everyone about God’s love. Jonah refused and went the other direction. He was thrown off a boat, swallowed by a whale and spit up close to the city where he originally was supposed to go. God uses Jonah to change thousands of lives. Listen in as Pastor Neal teaches from Jonah 1 about how God’s greatness will known around the world.
When was the last time you volunteered for something and then realized you might have gotten in over your head? It could have been to be the team mom, a scout troop leader, or serving an HOA board. Today we are in the final week of our sermon series called, Questions from God. For four weeks we’ve focused on passages in the Old Testament where God asks questions of mankind. We’ve studied questions pertaining to spiritual location, seeing a job through, and the greatness of God. Today, Pastor Neal Benson looks at a man who volunteers for a role that no one else seems to want. A man who was willing to leave his comfort to serve the Lord. Isaiah will teach us that not all volunteer roles are glorified positions.
Mother's day brings different emotions for everyone. Some women love this day. For others it’s a reminder of a broken relationship with their mom. Some are reminded that their mom is no longer with them. Some women are longing to be mothers. Others are thrilled to celebrate all day long. Listen in as Neal and Charity Benson share about how God is the one we need for every phase of our life.
The book of Job is written like a play. There is action on two stages - what happens on Earth and what happens in heaven. While the present-day reader knows what is happening on both stages, the characters in the story (on Earth) do not. Job cannot see or hear what is happening in heaven, and in the end, he never even finds out why it happened. However, Job discovers who God is. Listen in as guest speaker, Joey Ross, teaches that who we become in the midst of a storm is far more important than understanding the storm.
In the past several weeks my emotions have looked similar to the stock market. Some days they are up and other days they are down. Some days I feel like I won as a dad/husband and other days I feel like a complete failure. When we look at the life of Elijah we see that he has some amazing moments for the Lord and some other moments that felt very discouraging. In 1 Kings 19 we read that Jezebel put a hit on his life and he ran from Israel. It seems he ran from his call to ministry. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches about how to listen to the voice of God during difficult times.
Our Questions From God sermon series starts today with a look at the questions that God asks Adam and Eve in Genesis 3. As we study their dialogue, we'll see that since the beginning of time God has desired to be in an open and honest relationship with us.
In the exciting conclusion to our Mark sermon series, we see that Jesus conquered the grave! Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson talks about the resurrection of Christ and the importance of sharing the good news!
As we near the end of the book of Mark, we come to the events leading up to the crucifixion. In today's message from Mark 15:1-24, Pastor Neal talks about the response of Pilot, the soldiers, and Simon to Jesus. We'll learn that it's better to choose servanthood over self-preservation.
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.
