Faith & Finances Part 3: "How To Be Rich"

Written by

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.

Faith & Finances Part 1: It's All His!

Written by

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.

"Don't Stop On 6!" Vision 2016

Written by

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!”

Called to be Holy: Foundations for 2016

Written by

As we begin a brand new year, it's important to have our foundations right.  Associate Pastor Levi Simpson shares a great over-arching message from the book of Ephesians that speaks to what it looks like to imitate God in all we do.  Lean in and prepare yourself for an amazing year with God. 

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!

Happiness or Joy: You Choose

Written by

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.

Christmas Series: "LIGHT" Part 2

Written by

"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".

Christmas Series: "Light" Part 1

Written by

“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”.

Outward Part 10: Build Some Bridges!

Written by

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!

Outward Part 9: Praise in Prison

Written by

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? 
Absolutely! 
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.

Outward Part 7: It's Not About You!

Written by

How can we live "Outward" lives without taking credit "Inward"?  How can we live lives of kingdom impact without thinking we're a big deal?

In part 7 of our 10 part series "Outward", Pastor Mike takes us through a powerful account in Acts 14 where Paul & Barnabas were elevated far beyond their human status.  And together we will learn that the goal of our "Outward" living is not our glory, but God's.
