• Establishing God’s Kingdom: A “Good News, Bad News” Vision

      Have you ever known that a bad day was coming? You can see things lining up on the horizon and you just know, when I get to this point, it’s going to be bad? If you’ve ever been there, then you can relate to Daniel and the situation that...

  • Establishing God’s Kingdom: A Vision of Future Hope

    This past Sunday, we moved back into our Daniel series and kicked off the second half of Daniel. The second half of Daniel is quite different than the first half, as we get into a different genre; the genre of apocalyptic literature. This literature functions very differently than narrative or...

  • Selections from the Psalms: Worship While We Wait

      This week, we took a week off of our series in Daniel and opened up Psalm 137 on Sunday morning.  This Psalm is heavy in its tone and content as it deals with the anguish and lament while enduring captivity and calls upon the Lord’s judgment on their oppressors. ...

  • Establishing God’s Kingdom: God’s Deliverance of His People

    Growing up in Arizona, we would see many of the flash floods that are common in New Mexico. During monsoon season, it was pretty common to see a stranded motorist sitting on top of their car waiting to be rescued before they and their car were washed away (This was...

  • Establishing God’s Kingdom: God’s Kingdom and A Call To Repentance

      In this week’s message, we looked at Daniel Chapter 2, and the continuing story of King Nebuchadnezzar and his rather terrifying and heavy-handed leadership over God’s people, many of whom had been taken captive and made to serve the King in Babylon. In Chapter 2, we encounter the story...

  • Establishing God’s Kingdom: God’s Faithful Moving

      This past Sunday, we began our Fall sermon series through the book of Daniel. When we think of the book of Daniel as a whole, we think of God establishing His Kingdom. In that process, it’s important to keep in mind that while God will ultimately do this, Daniel...

  • A Faithful Church: Loves Ministry

    This past Sunday, we finished up our sermon series Faithful Church by looking at the final aspect of a faithful church – that a faithful church loves ministry. Ministry is any work that helps to execute the Great Commission. What we are challenged by is: The chief aim of ministry...
