It’s Personal: Daddy’s Money

In our affluent society, the excesses of wealth are out in full display. As a result, we don’t usually think of ourselves as rich, because there is always someone who has more. But the truth is, if we have more than we need, then we are rich. And as those who are rich, we have certain temptations that are specific to us. In this session, we’ll discuss a passage written directly to rich people and the subtle temptation that it addresses. November 10, 2019

We spend most of our lives trying to get rich. We work and scheme and worry in pursuit of this ever-elusive goal.

It’s Personal: Open Hands

During his time on earth, Jesus invited all to follow him. You are invited to follow him, but there’s something you need to know about following Jesus. It will cost you something eventually.

It may cost you money, career advancement, or even relationships. That’s because Jesus offers us the choice of denying ourselves now or losing ourselves later. But you’ll find that when you pay the price for following Jesus, you’ll be glad you did. October 27, 2019

The Bible. Hundreds of people live by it. Thousands of people have their morals shaped by it. But how many people actually bother to read it? On the surface, the Bible may seem like an irrelevant book from an ancient time. But inside the covers, the Bible is a collection of books that tells a singular story of redemption, a message that is as relevant today as ever.
