In our chaotic and busy world, a peaceful night of sleep seems rare. Whether it's stress, sickness, or insomnia many people struggle to fall asleep, stay asleep, or wake up rested. If you are struggling with sleep, you don't want to miss this message.

As we continue our "Songs of Christmas" series, we will talk about "Silent Night" and how you can sleep in Heavenly peace. Instead of telling you about the latest trend or convincing you that you have the wrong mattress, we will take a look at stories from the Bible where people rested peacefully in the face of trouble. At the end of my message, we will pray for you to sleep!

It's easy to tell when someone has a destructive person speaking into their life. If someone is angry, frustrated, and rude - often they are surrounded by angry, frustrated, and rude people. If someone is generous, loving, and intentional - often they are surrounded by the same type of people. The people who speak into your life, influence how you act and what you value.

In this message, we continue our study over the book of Jude - a letter written to a church influenced by false teachers sharing a false gospel. It was a dangerous situation for the church because the false teachers provided a low commitment, "do what feels good" religion. You will learn how to detect false teachers and choose the right voices to speak into your life!

Have you ever believed something that turned out to be fake? Maybe you were led down the wrong path by a business partner, spouse, or family member. Knowing that someone you trusted misguided or intentionally took advantage of you hurts. These people - false teachers - are selfish and destructive. 

In this message, we begin a new series on the book of Jude. Even though Jude is a short book, it holds many lessons on how you can defeat false teachers. As a biblical Christian, you must learn what it takes to resist temptation and remain faithful to God!

Have you ever made a purchase and then instantly regretted it?  Maybe it was an unreliable car, an outfit you thought was trendy, or a trip that ended up being a disappointment.  What did you learn from that purchase?  Some things aren't worth it - they are worthless, not priceless!
 
In this message, you will hear amazing stories of what God is doing around the world!  You will learn the value God places on people and will be challenged to do the same.  The opportunity you receive to express God's love to hurting people will be completely worth it - it will be priceless!

Every day you make value decisions - you decide what's worth the price and what's not.  People around you can tell what you value by looking at what you spend money on and how you spend your time.  When something is valuable, you don't think twice when it comes to time and money. 

In this message, we will learn about the most valuable thing of all.  It's worth more than a new house, a nice car, or a long vacation.  When we align our values with God's, it's absolutely worth the time and money.

What do holding your child for the first time, having the entire family together for Christmas, and watching your grandchild chase their dreams have in common?  They are all priceless moments.  Whether it is a sentimental moment, a family heirloom, or a silly drawing your kid made in class, there are things worth more than money.
 
This message is the start of our new series, "Priceless."  We talk about the most precious, priceless moment of all!  We will take communion together and remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

How many times have you been angry this week?  Maybe you yelled at a co-worker for missing a detail or punched the steering wheel after being cut off in morning traffic.  Whatever the situation, anger caused you to lash out in an unhealthy way. 
 
In this message, we finish our series "Life Lessons from a Loser."  Saul was known for being a hothead - he couldn't control his anger.   You will learn the root causes of anger and how you can defeat it when it rises in your spirit.  Because anger is common and dangerous, you must learn to control it before it's too late.

Have you ever been jealous of someone's family, success, or popularity?  When someone else is living the life you have always dreamed of, it can be difficult to deal with.  This feeling is common for many people.  Even though jealousy is common, it is also dangerous - it has the power to destroy you and your future. 
 
In this message, we continue to study the life of King Saul.  In spite of everything he had been blessed with, Saul couldn't stand when David was blessed.  You will learn from Saul's actions that jealousy has the power to ruin your life.

Everyone wants to live a blessed life.  You dream of a big house, a perfect family, and a long life.  Living a blessed life sounds wonderful - but as a biblical Christian, you must recognize that blessings are the result of your obedience to God's commands.

If you are like most, failing terrifies you!  You don't want to fail so you work your hardest to be seen as a winner.  Winners - people who succeed in life - are liked and looked up to.  Losers - people who fail - are ridiculed and forgotten.

This message is the start of our new series called "Life Lessons from a Loser."  We will learn from the life of a guy in the Bible who seemed to have everything going right.  Even though he had great potential, his choices and actions propelled him towards failure and the legacy of being a loser. There are valuable lessons in his story and mistakes to avoid!

In this lesson, we will look at the message to the seventh church in Revelation. Jesus' words show you that being a biblical Christian is not simply following God when it is convenient or beneficial - it requires a commitment that lasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Jesus calls you to commit your entire life and follow Him.

Have you ever been in a season where everything seems to go wrong? Your family is struggling, your finances are suffering, your job is in jeopardy, and your health is going downhill.  Maybe you are there right now.  If so, Jesus' message in Revelation 3:7-12 will give you the hope you need. 
 
In this message, you will learn the powerful lesson that nothing can stop God's plan.  No sickness, rumor, or attack of the enemy can stop God's will from being accomplished.  In the season where you can't seem to catch a break, this is an important promise to remember.

If you are like most, you care about your reputation.  You don't want others to believe you are a bad person, so you work hard to put yourself in a good light.  But a reputation means nothing if you don't live up to it.  In this message, we will look at Jesus' message to the church in Sardis.  Jesus' words in Revelation 3:1-3 show that you cannot truly follow Him based on the reputation of a relationship that you once had.  A healthy relationship with Jesus must be active and genuine.

In a world where your time, habits, and values are pulled in multiple directions, it can be hard to remain faithful to God.  Cultural Christianity tries to convince you that your ethical code can change based on the situation you are in.  As a biblical Christian, fight this temptation! 
 
In this message, we will look at Jesus' words. They are a strong warning for those who fail to remain faithful to Him.  But His words also provide a promise for those who do remain faithful - there is a reward waiting!

The fear of being judged is something that keeps people away from church.  There is no doubt that the Church in America has the reputation of being judgmental - but this is not how it should be.  In this message, as we continue to study the commands of Jesus, we will see the biblical view on judgment.  Nobody is perfect, therefore nobody has the place to judge.  When you judge others from a place of imperfection, you fall into the vicious trap of hypocrisy.  Together we will learn how to escape this cycle of judgment.

Watching American Christians the last couple of years can be concerning. Many have re-defined Christianity to match their political preferences, personal opinions or how they wish things would be. Often, they panic and freak out over the very things Jesus told us would happen. Their actions and reactions don’t represent Jesus well and their social media posts are an absolute embarrassment to the kingdom. If we are going to impact our world for Jesus, something has to change. In this message, you are going to be really, really challenged by the shift we must make – what the Lord is calling us to become. Don’t worry – it’s not an opinion; it’s straight from Scripture.
