12 | The Story: The Trials of a King

King David’s greatest battles were fought against the Sin inside of himself. Instead of doing what he was supposed to do as a king by going off to war, he stays home and fails repeatedly.  “The Story” sermon series continues. You can always text your questions to 248-274-4676. We’ll answer them in our Facebook Live at 2pm on Sundays.

The Miraculous Darkness

There was darkness from noon to 3pm on the day Jesus was crucified. It wasn’t an eclipse. It wasn’t natural. It was miraculous. Jesus takes our darkness onto himself to give us His light and life. We study this in our Miracles of Lent mid-week sermon series.

11 | The Story: From Shepherd to King

David is raised from shepherd boy to King of Israel. Throughout his life he faces many dangers, but the ones which are always most dangerous came from inside of him. When we fight our battles, we should choose our champions wisely. “The Story” sermon series continues. You can always text your questions to 248-274-4676. We’ll answer them in our Facebook Live at 2pm on Sundays.

The Miraculous Tearing of the Temple Curtain

What separates you from God? In the Israelite temple, there was a curtain which was 60-feet tall and six inches thick. It stood as physical representation of the spiritual separation of our Sin. When Jesus was crucified, the temple curtain which separated God from His people was torn in two! In Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, there is nothing which keeps you from God.

9 | The Story: The Faith of a Foreign Woman

Our goal for this sermon series has been to read the Bible. That’s exactly what we did with week 9 of “The Story” sermon series. We went verse-by-verse through Ruth and invited people to ask questions as we went. You can ask them too. Text your question to 248-274-4676. It’s a number we set up specifically for our Q&A sessions we’ll host on Facebook Live, Sundays at 2pm. Ruth is a story of ultimate faith in God worked out in real lives of real people.  God works in the regular and mundane. There are no miracles, angels, divine revelation. God prepares Naomi, Ruth and Boaz for the good works they do in faith. There’s suffering, sacrifice and deliverance, all pointing to our savior Jesus.

7 | The Story: The Battle Begins

God commands Joshua, “Be strong and courageous.” He encourages Joshua, “Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” He knows He sends Joshua to battle. He knows the price which will be paid. We continue our sermon series called “The Story”.

In the sermon, Pastor Matt used the video “The Encounter Collective” with permission from its creator studio, Process Creative. You can watch the video here: https://vimeo.com/78468485.

6 | The Story: Wandering

Why do the Israelites wander through the desert for forty years? They don’t believe God will do what He promises. They don’t believe He is who He says He is. Keeping our eyes on Jesus, we continue our sermon series called “The Story”.
