Life is not always a soft bed to sleep on with unlimited room service. Sometimes, life is more of a crisis we’re trying to overcome. We’re all familiar with crisis, aren’t we? An unexpected death in the family, job loss, unwanted divorce or bad news from the doctor are just a few of the difficult situations life can throw at us. Listen in as Neal preaches a message from 2 Kings 18 and 19 on "Impending Danger" and how to respond.
We live in a a noisy, fast-paced world. It seems like there is always music playing, a TV blaring or people talking. What if God asked us to slow down so we can recognize His voice and hear Him speak something meaningful to our hearts? Would we know how to do that? Listen in as Neal shares from 1 Samuel 3 about listening and prayer.
In the book of Philippians, God invites us to bring Him our anxiety and stress and exchange it for His peace. Would you like to know how? If so, listen in as guest speaker, Brian Berry, talks about 4 principles of prayer from Philippians 4:4-13.
Listen in as guest speaker, Dr. Willie Nolte of Transformation Ministries, continues our summer Prayer sermon series with a message entitled, “Family Prayers,” from Ephesians 3:14-21.
Whether you pray big prayers or what seem like small prayers, God hears those prayers. During a time when an evil king ruled in Israel and it looked like no one would intervene, God answered an emotional prayer of the prophet Elijah to heal a young boy. Listen in as Neal talks about “Homespun Prayer” based on the prayer of Elijah in 1 Kings 17:17-24.
Prayer is conversation with God, and a healthy prayer life is an essential part of a growing relationship with Christ. Unfortunately, we live in such a fast-paced world we often postpone or neglect prayer. One of the main reasons we are doing a prayer series at Coastline this summer is to help us connect more deeply with God through the discipline of prayer. Listen in as Pastor Neal teaches on Matthew 6:5-15 and explains how our unseen prayer life grows our personal relationship with Jesus.
Listen in as guest speaker, Bert Alcorn, wraps up our Found series with a great message from Luke 15 looking at the story of the prodigal son from the perspective of the prodigal, the brother and the father.
Think about something that you lost that was super valuable to you. Think about your emotions and thoughts. It’s interesting because when we lose something, we each respond differently. Some people might freak out or start stress out. Listen in as Neal preaches from Luke 15:7-10 and talks about God’s heart for lost things. We’re going to see that God is actively searching out people who are far from Him and in his love, we are never insignificant!
Have you ever been lost? Maybe there was a time you were driving and got lost on a freeway and had to figure out what to do next. What if your experience with being lost wasn’t physical but spiritual. Can you think of a time where you were spiritually lost and God came the rescue? Listen in as Neal shares from Luke 15:1-7 and talks about being found by God’s great love.
This weekend we finish our sermon series, “This is Us," with a message on our core value" Grace Happens Here." We understand that we do not deserve the grace of God, but we believe that once we've experienced God’s grace we should extend it to one another. This is a safe place to meet with God and learn about the great things He has done for each of us. Listen in as Neal talks about this grace from John 8:1-11.
