Boot Camp

02/16/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 6:6–6:32

Summary: In Mark, chapter six, we see the disciples in their ministry boot camp. Jesus sends them out, two-by-two, with his authority and his power, to proclaim the kingdom of heaven. They are to go as an extension of Jesus’ ministry. And this is the same calling we have as disciples of Jesus today, following in the footsteps of the Twelve, proclaiming repentance, and salvation by God’s grace through Christ.

In The Storms Of Life

02/09/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 4:35–4:41

Summary: Every one of us has faced, are facing, or will face a storm in life: perhaps a broken relationship, a deep disappointment, a debilitating illness, a wave of depression, a bitter experience

Parables

02/02/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 4:1–4:20

Summary: Jesus often spoke in parables. In the words of Dr. Roy Zuck: a parable is a story “thrown alongside the truth to illustrate the truth.” Before looking at the “Parable of the Sower” in Mark chapter four, we’ll consider “Five Guidelines of Interpreting Parables” in Dr. Zuck’s book Basic Bible Interpretation.

Controversy and Choice

01/26/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 2:23–3:19

Summary: Jesus was angry and grieved at the self-righteousness and hypocrisy of the Pharisees. He ran into their judgmentalism and legalism at every turn during his ministry. But Jesus was about his Father’s business and would not be deterred. As his ministry developed, he began to narrow his focus by selecting twelve men to be apostles, to be with him and to share his life. It would be to these men he would entrust the founding of the Church and expand his kingdom.

Prejudice and Tradition

01/19/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 2:13–2:22

Summary: Prejudice – it’s ugly; it’s wrong; and it’s not new. We see it front and center in the lives and views of the Pharisees. We also see how “tradition” became the foundation of a self-righteousness exhibited by these same Jews. Jesus addressed both of these things head-on, further leading to confrontation between him and the religious establishment.

Authority on Display

01/12/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 1:9–1:34

Summary: The fourth witness to the identity of Jesus given by Mark at the beginning of his Gospel is that of God the Father. And in the giving of the Spirit at Jesus’ baptism, there is a wonderful application and parallel to God’s giving of the Spirit to every person who believes in Jesus. Mark then begins to demonstrate the authority of Jesus in his life and ministry. Here in Mark, chapter one, we see his authority over Satan, over men, and over spirits.

Who Is this Guy?

01/05/20

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Rediscovering Jesus

Passage: Mark 1:1–1:8

Summary: The question desperately needing to be answered today as it was over 2000 years ago is: Who is Jesus? As Mark opens his Gospel account, he provides witnesses as to the identity of Jesus of Nazareth. But we must also answer the question: Can I believe the Biblical account of this man and his ministry? Can I have confidence that what I read in this Gospel, as well as the entire Bible, is really accurate and true?

The Role Of Prayer In Neighboring

12/29/19

Speaker: Chris Mendez

Category: Neighboring

Summary: As a church, we are committed to loving our neighbors. One practical way we can demonstrate love is through prayer. This message will explore how praying for your neighbors can make a difference and what those prayers should look like.

Hope Realized

12/22/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Advent 2019

Summary: Waiting can be difficult. When Mary and Joseph bring the Christ-child to Jerusalem to fulfill the requirements of the Law, they encounter two people who have been waiting, hoping. God revealed to them that this child was the Promised One, the Consolation of Israel. Their waiting was over. Hope was realized. What should we wait for? How should we wait? Why should we wait?

Joy Experienced

12/15/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Advent 2019

Summary: Joy is part of God’s plan and desire for those who believe in Christ, for those who are His children. The reason is that joy is an expression of God’s heart. It shows up in the Christmas story as an angel from God declares to the shepherds: “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
