Acts 10 is a significant “hinge” point in the advancing story of the Gospel. Sometimes referred to as the “Gentile Pentecost,” we see the racial, religious, and political barriers that have kept people apart, being broken down by the work of the Holy Spirit and gospel preaching. Typical to human nature however, is the response we see in the Jewish community, and it challenges us to check our attitudes toward people who are “not like us!”
Guest preacher Mark Burch brings a powerful message entitled “Neighbors for Eternity?” inviting us to the gift of living “Outward”.
What if what God does in you isn't meant just for you? What if He invites you to live beyond, to live "outward"?
In part 2 of our 10 week series, "Outward", Pastor Mike looks at how God turns a persecutor into a preacher, a murderer into a missionary. And the amazing thing is this 180 degree turnaround is not just for Saul, but for the whole world.
What would happen if you lived your life outward instead of inward? What if the work God did in you was meant to have impact beyond you?
Too many people are living too small lives, because they are focused inward, they are focused on themselves. And because of it, they miss the joy and impact that comes when we choose to live outward.
Pastor Mike begins this brand new 10 week series with one of the most dramatic conversions recorded in Scripture, giving us insight into the most important person in the New Testament outside of Jesus himself! And it is all under the headline, “Disqualified?” Let’s lean in!
Churches are known for their rows. But what if we grew better in circles than rows?
As we launch our Fall ministry season at KGF, Pastor Mike draws us to this crucial discover. We were made for circles, and some of the best work God does in our lives takes place in circles.
Our desire this Fall is that you would find your circle of belonging at KGF, and that God would use it to draw you deeper in your walk with Him.
When was the last time you prayed "bold" prayers?
Too often our prayers are about safety and comfort and protection. And while those prayers definitely have a place, I wonder what we're missing when we just stay there.
In the final message of our 10 week summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us", Pastor Mike draws our attention to the joy that comes when we pray for, and receive, a holy boldness. Can you imagine how our lives, and our church family, would be different if we began to pray for God to make us bold? Let's lean in together!
Have you ever wondered where there was power in a "blessing"? Truth is, we see blessings throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. And when we pause to pray these blessings over our loved ones, something happens. Pastor Marcus picks up this conversation in part 9 of our series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us"
What does it mean when the Bible says "Never Stop Praying"?
How can prayer be more than a momentary event, but a moment by moment reality?
And why is there power when we pray together?
Pastor Levi unpacks these and other questions in part 8 of our summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us"
When was the last time life overwhelmed you? If you’re normal, it seems to happen quite regularly. For those of you who are married, can marriage be overwhelming at times? How about as a parent, or in your job. Could be in your health, or finances.
But it’s worse when you’re overwhelmed and alone. We can get through things when we go through them together. Life can be crushing when we feel like we’re on our own.
Here’s the beautiful thing about prayer. Prayer is the conscious decision to invite God into the “overwhelmingness” of life. When we pray, we are saying to God, “I don’t want to do this alone. I can’t do this alone. I won’t do this alone. I need you.”
In part 7 of our 10 part summer series, “Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us”, Pastor Mike brings us to a beautiful passage that really shows the desperation prayer, “Not Without You!”
They say God answers prayers three ways: Yes, No, & Wait. We don't mind the first one, but the second two are much more difficult. What do we do when God says no to our prayers? Pastor Rolly shares this very personal and powerful message as part of our summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us".
If worship can be living, might living be prayer? Are there different ways of communicating with God? How can we actually hear God’s voice?
Guest preacher Ed Boschman steps into our summer series and delivers a powerful reminder that God is listening, if we are willing to pause long enough to engage Him.
Have you ever wondered what to do when you don't know what to do? What to do when you receive news that terrifies you? The good news is there is something we can do when we don't know what to do. And it really does change everything!
Pastor Mike continues in our summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us" by looking at a powerful yet simple prayer by a king who didn't know what to do, but who's eyes were on the right place.
Have you ever noticed there is a difference between "looking" and "seeing"? I believe something has to happen for God to actually open our eyes to see the spiritual reality of our world, and the provisions He already has in place around us. And the good news is that's what He wants to do!
Pastor Mike brings part 3 of our summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us"
It's a word found more than 70 times in the Psalms. So maybe we are supposed to take note of it.
In part 2 of our 10 part summer series, "Be Still & Know: How Prayer Changes Us", Pastor Mike shines the light on the power of the pause. Perhaps prayer is as much pausing to realize that there is a God and we're not Him. Perhaps we would do better to live more in the "Selah" of the moment, the pause, the breathe, the break. . . to be still and know that I am God.
Prayer is something that is instinctual to all of us, but also something that many of us struggle with in our journey with Christ. The book of Jonah provides some wonderful examples of what prayer is, how we can and should engage in it, and how engaging God in conversation can transform us for His good purposes for us.
Pastor Levi Simpson starts off our summer series "Be Still and Know: How Prayer Changes Us"
In a message of commissioning and challenge, Pastor Marcus speaks to the Graduates, and us, as we cross milestones on this journey of life. Three key things we must never forget: God's Providence, God's Priests, and God's Power.
