May 14, 2017: Mother’s Day and Praying Parents

Preached by Tary Hanson (00:34)

Mother’s Day reminds us that not only are mothers important, but Godly parents are important to children and the larger community.

Jesus encourages his disciples to pray and he promises that God answers persistent prayers.  Motherhood is hard and can be exhausting, but Godly motherhood is so important and prayer is a vital part of parenting.

October 30, 2016 – Godly Character is a Process

Preached by Cortney Kluver (00:43)

Character is made through a process.  You don’t just wake up one day and have godly character.  Character is built through trials, through work, through experience.

If you want to see improvements in your life and increase to your faith, then let God walk with you through the experiences needed to build up your faith.

August 7, 2016 – Talking with the Father

Preached by Chris Tweedy (01:02)

The first students of Jesus asked him how they should pray.  What an odd question for men who grew up learning how to pray to the God of their ancestors.  One of the most famous prayers in the western world, Jesus taught his disciples a prayer that has come to be known as the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus didn’t intend this to be the only way to pray, but he provided important insight into our conversations with God.  When you pray, consider how Jesus taught his first disciples to pray.  Like Jesus, in your prayers: praise God, seek what God wants, ask for what you need, receive and give forgiveness, request guidance, and accept protection.
