The Rejected King

09/24/2017 | Pastor Matt Roden

God calls us all to obedience, but full obedience is hard. There's a real cost that happens when we leave the way God has made us unique to put on the uniform of culture. In week 1 of Empire, we look at how Saul's disobedience and downfall set David up to be king.

Defeating Giants in Your Life

10/01/2017 | Pastor Craig Altman

We all face struggles in our lives. Figurative giants that seem to be standing in the way our full potential. As we look at the circumstances surrounding David’s battle with Goliath, we see that our limitations are set by what we choose to believe about ourselves and God.

Lessons from a Giant Killer

10/08/2017 | Pastor Craig Altman

We face my types of giants in our lives. Obstacles that seem too big for us to take on alone. The reality is, they are. But there is hope. David was a giant killer, and if we look at his life we can see how God equips to face our giants through His power.

Authority Issues

10/15/2017 | Pastor Matt Roden

Have you ever had a problem with a person in authority over you? We can just assume the answer is “yes.” Is your response to authority guided by respect or resentment? As we look at the lives of Saul and Absalom, we learn your attitude toward authority will either move you forward or hold you back.

The Scandalous Secret

10/22/2017 | Pastor Matt Roden

Life​ ​is​ ​short,​ ​and​ ​your​ ​marriage​ ​can​ ​be​ ​too​ ​​if​ ​we​ ​follow​ ​the​ ​culture​ ​we​ ​live​ ​in.​ Our culture wants to play hot potato with the bomb of sexual sin and when it explodes, the consequences are real. We see this played out in David’s affair with Bathsheba. We’re exposed to the devastating consequences of his actions, but we also find hope in the restoration God provides.
