“What’s Love Got To Do With It?”

09/15/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Five Things I Wish Jesus Never Said

Summary: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” It’s easy to look at this statement and think, “Okay, I see it.” But when you stop to think about it, you realize there is so much more to it than a quick read. It forces you to go deeper in understanding what Jesus was after.

5 Things I Wish Jesus Never Said - “Camels, Needles and the Rich”

09/08/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Five Things I Wish Jesus Never Said

Summary: When Jesus said: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom,” it left the disciples scratching their heads. They asked Jesus, “Then who can be saved?” Since to them God blessed the righteous with riches, if that person couldn’t enter the Kingdom, then who could? Jesus put his finger on the problem of this rich young ruler. Today, he puts his finger on whatever has become one’s god, whatever is the barrier to entering the Kingdom.

5 Things I Wish Jesus Never Said - “Love Your Enemies”

09/01/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Five Things I Wish Jesus Never Said

Summary: Jesus said some very difficult things as he taught about the Kingdom and how his followers should live their lives. They’re hard sometimes because they go against the grain of our natural instincts and desires. Or they’re hard because we just don’t want to do them. This first message deals with God’s expectations of how we should deal with those we would call our “enemies.”

Jacob: A Messy Life - Act Three

08/18/19

Speaker: Chris Mendez

Series: Jacob: A Messy Life

Summary: This message concludes our series on the messy life of Jacob. Looking at the latter end of Jacob’s life we’ll see the danger of not confronting our own dysfunction and we’ll see how God is faithful to work in our mess to bring about his good purposes.

Jacob: A Messy Life - Act Two

08/11/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Jacob: A Messy Life

Summary: Jacob’s messy life follows him from Canaan (after he deceives his father into giving his blessing to him rather than Esau the firstborn) all the way to Haran where he is deceived by his uncle Laban. The family dysfunction continues but so does God’s faithfulness. In spite of his failings, his shortcomings, his deceptions, God honors the covenant promise he made to Abraham, Jacob’s grandfather.

Jacob: A Messy Life - Act One

08/04/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Jacob: A Messy Life

Summary: There is a theme that runs through the family of Abraham, recurring over and over again. It shows up in the focus of this message series in the person of Jacob. Here it is: “Life is messy; God is faithful.” There is a cycle of family dysfunction that we see early on in Jacob’s life. He is a man who deceives and manipulates at his mother’s insistence to achieve ends that God had already promised. Do we see anything of Jacob in the story of our lives?

Faith That Moves - Jairus’ Story

07/28/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Summary: Salvation and spiritual growth – all by God’s grace –are fueled, on the human level, by faith. The Gospel writer Mark shares an experience in the lives of two people, two very unlikely candidates for special attention from Jesus, two people from contrasting segments of society. What Jesus commends in both instances is the faith they have in his ability to meet a need no one else could.

Marriage: Aiming For Better, Not Worse - Dealing with Conflict

07/21/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Marriage: Aiming For Better, Not Worse

Summary: Learning to resolve conflict well is crucial if we are to maintain and sustain vital, growing, biblical relationships. This is especially true within marriage. Dr. Gary Rosberg, in his book Choosing To Love Again, gives an excellent model for resolving conflict with a goal of restoration and reconciliation.

Marriage: Aiming For Better, Not Worse - Communication

07/14/19

Speaker: Mark Petersburg

Series: Marriage: Aiming For Better, Not Worse

Summary: It probably goes without saying that relationships can barely exist, certainly not thrive, without communication. It is particularly needful in marriage. God gave us, in creation, the capacity to communicate. With that capacity comes the awesome power to encourage or discourage, to build up or tear down, to engage or ignore, to illuminate or intimidate, to soothe or irritate, to enhance or detract. Good communication is a skill we can learn and hone for better relationships.
