Pastor Lionel Young | Deuteronomy 6 | Handing Down Our Faith
This Mother’s Day exposition focuses on Deuteronomy 6:1-15 with a message to the whole church: We’re all making an impression on the generations that follow us. Let’s make sure we press deeply into them that all of life is about loving God.
Train for Transformation | 1 Timothy 4:7-10 | Pastor Jon Nitta
“While there is effort, the effort is not to do Christian things. The effort is engaging in spiritual disciplines as a means to get on the highway that leads to the ocean of God’s grace.” Pastor Jon Nitta caps the 3-week You Can Change series with an intense conversation about the habits that open us up to change. Habituating these things into our lives focuses us on Christ, and THAT is how we change.
Get on God’s Plan for Change | Colossians 3 | Pastor Josh Reasoner
“While it’s true that you can’t change yourself and only God change you; it’s equally true that change is not automatic and you can’t kick back and wait for it to come.” Pastor Josh Reasoner explains why so much self-help advice isn’t really helpful at all since it doesn’t bring lasting change. Real change is a matter of digging down into ourselves and looking upward at all the Jesus Christ offers. It’s not shedding one thing for nothing, but rather shedding one thing for something so much better.
What It Means to Be Spiritual | Galatians 5 | Pastor Lionel Young
“Change is not about quitting bad habits; it’s about the transformation of your character.” Pastor Lionel Young gives the theological backbone of this statement and introduces the new You Can Change series—what it means to change (according to the Bible), why it’s expected, and HOW it happens for Christ-followers. In this series, prepare to laugh, think, and come to understand what real life change is all about.
