Series: Let's face it.  Not a day goes by that you're not tempted to glance to the left and to the right to see how you measure up to the people around you.  It's frustrating.  It's exhausting.  It's a TRAP!

Sermon: We all want to be smarter, richer, happier, or funnier but as we will see comparison is a game with no winners.

Speaker: Barry Kilmer

Radical Hospitality: Loving the Unlovable

Radical Hospitality: Loving the Unlovable

September 8, 2019

Sermon: Living radical hospitable lives will force us to move those who are different to those we deem unlovable.  Being kind to our kind does nothing for the Kingdom, but being kind to those we have repelled from our lives not only opens the door for Jesus to change a life, but also opens the door for us to become more like Him.

Speaker: Jeff Schrecengost

Radical Hospitality: Distrust the Disgust

Radical Hospitality: Distrust the Disgust

August 25, 2019

Sermon: We all have levels of disgust in our lives; areas in the lives of others that we find offensive, distasteful and/or hate.  And because those barriers are there knowingly and unknowingly, we divide ourselves from the very people we have been called to reach with the message of hope.  How would your Kingdom impact be different if those barriers were removed?

Speaker: Matt Pousseur

Radical Hospitality: A World Without Strangers

August 18, 2019

Series: As a church we are called to reach the world around us with the message of Hope, but too often there are unforeseen barriers in our lives keeping us from living our mission out.  Radical Hospitality is geared to break those barriers down and create bridges in life to live in a world without strangers.  When strangers start acting as neighbors, communities are transformed.

Sermon: Creating a world without strangers starts on the inside.  As a church we are called to live out radical hospitality with one another.  Because if we don't live it here, we won't live it out there.

Speaker: Barry Kilmer

Sermon: Darkness and pain can cloud our view of God, if we let them.  How do we worship when we feel God is distant?  Our time and mental thought can be stolen by worshiping our problems and fears.  How do we set out sights on the one who sits above it all?

Speaker: Barry Kilmer
