On Sunday, April 28, we’re beginning a new sermon series called Real Talk. In this seven-week series, we’ll look at what Scripture says about anxiety, worry, and fear. We’ll learn practical ways we can apply what we’re studying in Scripture to our everyday lives so that we can live with peace in an anxious world. Invite a friend, and join us Sundays at 10:00 AM!

  • Speaker: Neal Benson
  • Scripture: John 18:28-40
  • John 18-21 primarily focuses on the arrest, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. John 18 focuses on the unfair, unjust, midnight trail of Jesus. The first half of John 18 focuses on the Jewish part of the trial while the second half focuses on the Roman part of the trial. In today's passage, we will see Jesus brought before Pilate for the Roman phase of His trial. To best understand this passage, we need to put on the lens of a lawyer and consider the legal system of the first century. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches about how Jesus is the truth who calls for a decision in our life.

  • Speaker: Neal Benson
  • Scripture: John 18:1-27
  • John 18 begins a new section in the Gospel of John. This section starts the path to the cross for Jesus, his resurrection, and his reinstatement of Peter. In John 13 we read that Judas left the Passover meal to hand Jesus over to the religious leaders. In today's text, Jesus is arrested by the religious leaders in the Garden of Gethsemane. It must have been frightening for the disciples to witness the arrest of Jesus, yet during His arrest, we see Jesus intentionally protected the disciples to keep them safe. Then, while Jesus is in an unfair, unjust, midnight courtroom Peter denies Jesus three times. Peter leaves broken and in tears. Watch as Pastor Neal Benson brings to life the night Jesus was betrayed.

  • Scripture: John 17
  • Life can sometimes feel like the game of Jenga. Pieces are moving, things are unstable, and who knows what will happen next! In John 13-17, Jesus teaches the disciples in a famous part of Scripture known as the Upper Room Discourse. Today we come to John 17 and finish the Upper Room Discourse. For the past several chapters Jesus has taught on love, serving others, and the Kingdom of God. Today we come to a beautiful passage in Scripture where Jesus prays for the disciples and prays for us. As we study John 17 we will see how Jesus longs for us to be united in a world that so easily causes division. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches  about unity in the body of Christ.

  • Scripture: John 16:19-33
  • For the past several weeks, we have been looking at the conversation Jesus had with his disciples on the night before he was crucified (John 13-17). This was his last
    opportunity to be with them and teach them. Because of this, the stuff Jesus talked about with the disciples was important. Listen in as Pastor Doug Meye teaches from John 16:19-33 that we were created for the joy Jesus offers.

  • Speaker: Neal Benson
  • Scripture: John 15:26-16:15
  • All of us have been in a place in our life where we needed help from someone. The upper room discourse is the final teaching of Jesus before He went to the cross. Much of His teaching is focused on loving others and spreading the Gospel. In today’s passage Jesus continues to explain to the disciples about His departure and the sending of the Holy Spirit and what that means for their lives. We’ll learn that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, that it’s actually good for us that Jesus returned to heaven, and we’ll also learn how we can walk in the truth of God. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches on John 15:26-16:15.

  • Scripture: John 15:18-25
  • Growing up many of us were told "cautionary tales" like don't eat watermelon seeds or swallow bubble gum or go outside with wet hair. For the past couple of weeks in the Gospel of John, we’ve seen a recurring theme of love. Jesus commanded the disciples to love others. He instructed them to love each other. He instructed them to keep His commands as a way to show their love for Him. Today we have a turn in our passage. Jesus is going to tell his disciples that the world will hate them. It’s a cautionary tale but one that will come true. Jesus is preparing them for what will happen to them for following Him. Jesus wants them to know that those who follow Him will endure persecution and be hated. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches on John 15:18-25.

  • Scripture: John 15:1-17
  • In John 15:1,  Jesus gives us another “I am” statement. He says, “I am the true vine.” Most of us don't think of Jesus as a vine, but the point of the illustration is that we need to be connected to the vine. To an agrarian culture this metaphor would have made sense. Many of us today can relate to this metaphor because of the agriculture around us. As we discuss this passage we’ll talk about remaining in Jesus and what pruning looks like in our lives. Listen in as Pastor Neal Benson teaches from John 15:1-17 that remaining in Jesus bring about deep transformation in our lives.
