Transforming "Your Life Matters"
What's the most important thing in life? Hint: It isn't extending your life on this earth at all costs. It isn't even extending or improving the life of your neighbor. The most important thing is to be right with God. To have the favor of the one who made you. Both for this life and the next. Jesus warns us not to be confident in our own righteousness, but to come to God in humbleness and faith and receive his mercy. Pastor Jet 5-2-21

March 28, 2021
We were created by God to represent Him to the world (a kingdom of priests) to shine like stars. How do I do this? Why should I do this? In this world, people will disappoint. God will not. Pastor Tim Perkins 2-21-2021
March 21, 2021
We naturally feel guilt. We also naturally try to hide it. It is through our brokenness that the power of the Gospel transforms lives. God has been using broken, incapable, flawed people throughout history. We have this treasure in jars of clay. This treasure is Jesus who has overcome the world. So don't hide your imperfections. Learn how to live differently. Pastor Jon Thomas 3-14-2021

How much are you worth? In America, companies spent over 253 billion dollars each year in advertising. Why? They want to influence your buying decisions.

How can a follower of Jesus make a difference such a world? Join us for this series as we tackle those questions. Pastor Jon Thomas 3-7-2021

Sermon - Worship - "Until The Whole World Hears"
When we surrender our lives to God, we offer Him a life that allows Him to guide our thoughts, words, and actions. When we surrender, we die to ourselves so we can be instruments of righteousness living for God’s will. Worship requires us to lay down our desire to conform to the world. Worship is less me and more Jesus. That means honoring God by thinking more about others than ourselves. It means even when we have the authority to have it our way, we may let it go. We surrender our lives by living more intentionally. We bring glory to God by the way we live out our days. Worship is honor and respect—appreciation for life, the world, our blessings, gratitude, and thankfulness for each day. True worship is demonstrated in how we live each day when no one is looking. Gather to Scatter - Gather to draw strength, then GO bringing glory to God in the world so more people will hear of His name and be transformed forever. Pastor Jet Jones 2-28-2021

Worship - "King of My Heart"
Who or what has the top spot in your heart? Spend some time with Jesus and he will help you find the answer and in the end fill you with His love....if you let Him. Pastor Tim Perkins 2-21-2021
February 21, 2021
Worship - "Great Are You Lord"
"Love the Lord with all your heart..." What true worship demands. Spirit & Truth If we don't do what we say we believe, we aren't living authentically. If we worship with our mouth, but our actions don't follow, it's a ritual, not worship. Pastor Jet Jones 2-14-2021
February 14, 2021
Worship - "How Great is Our God"
God created us to worship. He doesn’t need sacrifices. That is why He offered Himself as a sacrificial lamb once and for all. Pastor Jon Thomas 2-7-2021

January 31, 2021
Focus (Character of God) - "Justice"
Vengeance: everyone feels like this sometimes, but God I'm going to state my case to you and leave it in your courtroom. You know the best dispensing of justice. Who of us would make a good judge? Bias? Pastor Jet Jones 1-24-2021
January 24, 2021
Focus - "Slow to Anger"
When was the last time you got angry? I'm sure it was justified. You were hurt or wronged in some way. But maybe you are still uncomfortable with being angry, like you shouldn't be angry. Maybe you don't like the thought of God being angry. But in today's message, you will see why we need God to be angry and why we are fortunate that He is slow to get angry. Pastor Jon Thomas
January 17, 2021
Focus - "Compassionate"
God understands our weaknesses and shows us compassion. Wear are thankful that God is compassionate and merciful. So we should "Clothe" ourselves with compassion. God has shown us His compassion by putting what we deserve on His Son. Pastor Jet Jones 1-10-2021
January 10, 2021
Focus - "Character of God"
To start the new year, what if you tried viewing the world through the lens of who God really is, not just what you imagine or guess about him? Knowing and focusing on who he is will change they way you experience and process what comes at you each day. Pastor Tim Perkins 1/3/2021

The Thrill of Hope - "Expect the Unexpected"
We all have ideas about how we expect life to turn out, but God is not bound by our narrow expectations. Are you ready? Have Total Trust in Jesus despite the unknown & the opinions of other people. "Let it be as You have said.." Surrender and be available to be used by God. Jesus was born to give us the most unexpected Gift of all. His life in place of ours. Pastor Tim Perkins 12-13-2020
December 13, 2020

November 22, 2020
Generosity - "The Choice of Generosity"
You can grow in the grace of generosity. So you will have room to grow when it comes to generosity. Answer the question, what is keeping me from becoming more generous? Remember, Jesus, though rich, became poor. Pastor Jon Thomas 11/15/2020
November 15, 2020
Generosity - "The Absurdity of Generosity"
Generosity doesn't make sense. But aren't you inspired when you see it? In a dog eat dog world, generosity sticks out. It is noticeable. And perhaps the craziest things of all about generosity is that it is fun. It is life-giving. Perhaps those that have discovered the joy of generosity have discovered something about God, that He is generous and loves to give. Does talking about money make you uncomfortable? Perhaps you have been looking at it wrong. Join us for five messages that could set you free. Pastor Jon Thomas 11-8-2020

Praise Service - Unity - "Discipline"
Unity - "Discipline" Jesus desires unity, but it takes discipline. We should have humility when going through discipline and hope when God brings them through it.

October 25, 2020
Unity - "Time"
New Series Unity - Closing the Gap between you, Jesus and others The day Pearl Harbor was attacked, it galvanized a nation. The Miracle on Ice brought together a country. In the days following 9/11, unity in America was at an all time high. Why didn't it last? We crave unity but we naturally move toward disunity, in our homes, in our community, in our politics, in our nation, in our world. In the last day before Jesus died, the emphasis of Jesus' prayer was not for God to protect His disciples or to empower them or for unique insights. He prayed that they might be one. He prayed for unity. Unity with God and with each other. Join us as we take a three week journey to intentionally move toward unity. Sermon - "Time" Jesus desires unity, but it takes spending time together. Increasing desire to spend time with Jesus and other believers. Invite God into Your Day / Minimize Distractions / Make It Enjoyable. Jesus wants to spend all of His time with us. He died for us to close the gap between us and God. Pastor Jet Jones 10-18-2020
October 18, 2020

October 11, 2020

PTI - Hoping for an Interruption
New Series - Pardon the Interruption What would an interruption in your life look like right now? A pesky inconvenience? A hoped-for answer to prayer? A wake up call? Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote about interruptions in his book, Life Together: “We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God. God will be constantly crossing our paths and canceling our plans by sending us people with claims and petitions.” When God took on flesh that first Christmas in Bethlehem, Jesus interrupted history and came to deliver Heaven’s greatest gift...Salvation in His Name! Not everyone reacted to His interruption in the same way. Jesus wants to interrupt your life this Advent season - how will you respond to him? Episode - Hoping For an Interruption Be open to God interrupting your life in an unexpected way. We place our hope in ourselves, other people, or things. Jesus came to bring us hope that we can't find anywhere else. When life seems cut down to nothing, God is up to something. Pastor Jet Jones Dec. 1, 2019

True North - "Sexuality"
God does have a beautiful plan for each one of us when it comes to sexuality. Finding your way, must include the true parameters with which the Bible guides us.

October 28, 2019
True North - "Good Enough"
True North: "Good Enough" As humans, we have a natural tendency to want to earn what we receive, and to believe that we can.

Called - To Work
Start of the Series Called: Why am I here? We all want to know the answer. You've probably asked yourself this question many times. You can spend your life searching for an answer or you can spend your life knowing the One who has a unique calling on your life. If you are retired, working or a student, you are called. "To Work" To work without worry. We live with the tension of doing nothing (relying on God) or doing everything (without God). God could do it Himself but He calls us to participate.

PowerFULL - Scattered
To live in the power of the Holy Spirit on the best and the worst days of our lives. Suffering can make me doubt God or deny knowing Him to protect myself.

PowerFULL - Turnaround
Turn from what is weighing you down to live a life of power over all the Jesus paid for. We have believed the lie that we cannot escape that which weighs us down.

PowerFULL - Purpose with Power
Start of the Series PowerFULL. Do you struggle with feeling powerless? Ever feel too tired, too worn, too weak, too spread thin to accomplish the plans and purposes that Jesus has assigned for your life? You're not alone. In fact, no one can accomplish what God is asking us to do in our own strength; a God-sized mission can't be done with human-sized strength. In the book of Acts, we uncover the clarity of God's mission for our lives—that we carry the name of Jesus far and wide to the whole world. We discover we have sufficient power through the Holy Spirit to lift up Jesus for all to see. God's power enables us to be everything God has created us to be and to do everything He has called us to do. It is Jesus who can truly make us Power-Full. Purpose with Power We are easily overwhelmed with hopelessness, feeling we have no power or purpose with circumstances going on around us. Jesus' encourages us through His actions and promises that we have all the power we need. Pastor Tim Perkins June 9, 2019
