"Abnormal: three" (HS) - 05.22.19

High School Message
As followers of Jesus we need to choose who or what we're truly serving, loving and pursuing - God or ourselves.  This week we began a short trek through 1 Corinthians to see how Paul confronted that church about just this issue.

"Abnormal: two" (HS) - 05.08.19

High School Message
What you treasure... what you value most is what holds your heart, and is ultimately what you live for.  God redeems people through the death and resurrection of Jesus to make people right with Him FOR HIMSELF!  He wants to be our treasure - our heart's desire!  But somehow many who claim this salvation are divided between many loves and never consider whether or not it pleases Him.

For the first full lesson in the Abnormal series, you have to start at the beginning.  The transformation we're calling people to can't be manufactured and only makes sense for people who have become a new creation.When YOU are different, how you live and see the world is too.

"Abnormal Series" intro - 04.10.19

Middle & High School Message
This is the introduction to our "Abnormal" series which, in a way, could never end because it is a call to a lifelong, perspective transformation under which everything we teach falls.  When people repent, are born again, adopted into God's family and made a new creation they are no longer the same and should live differently than the world.  We must be ABNORMAL to the standards we are surrounded by in favor of God's way of seeing and doing things.  It is altogether different but we are easily lulled into a hybrid that isn't what God had in mind.

"Friends: Relationships are Necessary" (HS) - 02.13.19

High School Message
Relationships being necessary may seem like a no-brainer to some, but we frequently substitute, shallow, or even virtual relationships for deep & genuine ones.  They take time and work and we need to recognize the roadblocks we face in creating them.

Middle & High School Message
One of the biggest driving forces in making and keeping friendships is a desire for acceptance and a fear of rejection.  It is a powerful component that can even lead to making us people we never thought we'd become.
