“Don’t Be A Fool”
It sounds like a pretty tough title, but truth is it comes right out of one of Jesus’ most famous parables on the subject of Faith & Finances. In Luke 12, Jesus paints the picture of a farmer who had a great year. But instead of being rich towards God, he was foolish in using it all on himself. Jesus challenges us on the subject of greed, which is the assumption that everything that’s placed in my hands is for my consumption.
We want the final word in this series to be from Jesus, because he spoke a lot about how our faith is meant to interact with finances. 15 percent of everything Jesus ever taught, and one-third of his parables, was on the topic of money and possessions. Why such an emphasis on this subject? Because Jesus knows there is a fundamental connection between how we think about and handle money and our spiritual lives.
Here’s Pastor Mike Penninga with part 4 of our series “Faith & Finances” in a message entitled “Don’t Be A Fool”
If you've ever wondered “How to Be Rich”, then we invite you to lean into this message from Pastor Mike Penninga. To be clear, this is not a message about getting rich or staying rich. But should you ever find yourself "rich", how should you live? How can we "be rich" well? Hint: the issue is not what you have, but what you do with what you have.
Here’s Pastor Mike with part 3 of our series “Faith & Finances”.
“Culture invites us into consumption. God invites us into contentment.”
We all seem to know this. The challenge is actually walking it out on a daily basis.
In part 2 of our 4 part series “Faith & Finances”, Pastor Mike Penninga looks at those things that battle our contentment, and how we can ultimately win.
If you’ve ever wondered how you can stop trying to “Keep up with the Joneses”, lean in.
What happens at the intersection of our Faith & Finances? Some people think God isn’t interested in what we do with our money.
There’s a couple of mistakes in that reasoning. First of all it isn’t our money. . .we are stewards, not owners. And secondly, God actually has a lot to say about money. You’ll find about 500 verses on prayer, less than 500 on faith, but over 23-hundred verses on the subject of money and possessions.
Why is it so important? Because what God says is true. . where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. So we want to spend the next four weeks unpacking God’s heart for us in this everyday area of life.

In races, they wave a checkered flag on the last lap. . . almost there. Unfortunately life doesn't wave a checkered flag. And yet just around the next turn, the next sacrifice, just if you can make it through this season, just if you don’t give up in this trial, something will break through.
The reason you can’t stop is because you might be on 6 and not even know it.
You might be so close, wouldn’t it be a shame for you to quit when you’re this close.
You can’t stop on 6.
In this Vision 2016 message, Pastor Mike shares a message that has impacted him deeply, entitled “Don’t Stop on 6!”
Pastor Mike took a few minutes at the Christmas in the City celebrations December 24th @ the Community Theatre to help people see the big picture of Christmas. Here's why it matters: Christmas means you aren't alone, and Christmas means God has made a way home!
As we close out an amazing 2015, we wanted to pause on this question: Are you journeying with joy or has that gift somehow alluded you?
We're excited to have one of our Partner in Ministries, Jeff Michaud, share a beautiful reflection based on his own life and scriptural truths of how God invites us to more than just surviving, but thriving with Him.
What happens when Light meets Darkness? Light wins. . . every time!
In our fourth and final message in the Christmas series “LIGHT”, Pastor Mike draws our attention to one of the darkest moments of the Christmas story. But in the midst of life’s highs and lows, God is present, and light will be victorious!
Good things happen when you follow the Star.
Good things happen when you follow God’s guidance.
Because when you let His light lead you, you find what you are most looking for.
Here’s Pastor Mike Penninga with Part 3 of our Christmas series, “LIGHT”: Follow The Star!
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
What does it mean for Jesus to be the Light of the World (John 8:12). In this encouraging message from Pastor Marcus, we are invited to look into the beginning of John's Gospel and discover how Jesus dispels the darkness in our lives and communities. And when we follow Him he calls us to be lamps, shining in the world, that people might know true hope and peace in the midst of darkness.
There is something incredibly powerful about light, and Christmas is the time when the Light of the World came near.
Here's Pastor Marcus with Part 2 of our Christmas series, "LIGHT".
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” Isaiah 9:2
That verse gives me shivers, and always sets my eyes on the Light of Christmas. What is it about “Light” that is so appealing, so drawing? And why is it that this metaphor of “Light” is found throughout the Christmas story?
The good news is that the “Light” has broken through our darkness and is showing us the way home. The question is are you ready?
Here is Pastor Mike Penninga with part 1 of our 4 part Christmas series entitled “LIGHT”.
What if Christians became known more as Bridge Builders than Rock Throwers? What if we looked at opportunities to find a common bond, as opposed to push people further away?
In the 10th and final message of our series "Outward", Pastor Mike looks at one of the best examples of bridge building, outward living, from the Apostle Paul. He found himself waiting around in a very Godless city, only to find an unbelievable link that led people to discover the God they were missing!
May your lives echo in eternity as you live Outward for Jesus!
Is it possible to praise while in prison?
Is it possible to worship while in weakness?
Is it possible to live a life of faith amidst the fire?
And when we live that way, God can move through us beyond us to impact those around us.
Here’s Pastor Mike Penninga with a message entitled "Praise in Prison, part 9 of our 10 part series, “Outward”, from the book of Acts.
Pastor Levi draws our attention on what it looks like when the people of God are at work for the purposes of God. Part of our 10 part series in the book of Acts entitled "Outward".
