In God We Trust

March 2015 – April 2015

“In God We Trust?” It is right there on our money to remind us. And deep down most of us want to live lives of deep faith in God. But do we really trust? Does trust drive how we invest our time, energy, and resources? Why are we so prone to be fearful and anxious? Why are we so slow to turn to God? Why do we try to alleviate our anxieties by clinging to things that make us feel safe: investments, possessions, comforts.

Join us for five challenging messages from the words of Jesus in the gospel of Luke chapter 12 that force us to face up to our fears and point us to the eternal blessings of a deep trust in God.

The Big 7

January 2015 – February 2015

New Year’s is a great time to take account of our lives and make plans for the days to come. The same is true for us as a church. Last year, we began to implement a new strategic plan for ministry at FCC. The plan was born out of prayer and listening and is based on our unique vision, values, giftedness, as well as new opportunities before us. Seven key strategic priorities were identified which we refer to as “The Big Seven”. During this sermon series, we will be exploring Scripture that undergird and reinforce these initiatives. Let’s continue to seek God’s heart together as we live out our faith together as a community.

Messed Up Family Tree (Advent 2014)

November 2014 – January 2015

(Matthew 1:1-17) Christmas is a joyous season. But for some, it can also be a time of added stress and difficult family dynamics. Don’t worry, Jesus’ family was pretty messed up too! Just look at his family tree in Matthew 1- not the kind of characters that you think would be the lineage of the great king of kings! Yet it was through this family that God sent his Son to save the world and bring us into His ultimate, perfect family. “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12)

Way of Life

September 2014 – November 2014

Discipleship is not a church program, it is a way of life. This fall, we will be looking at the apostle Paul’s letters to his companion Timothy, who Paul calls “my true son in the faith”. These letters are vivid picture of life-on-life discipleship- Paul, investing himself in Timothy’s spiritual growth in Jesus Christ. But it didn’t stop there, Paul instructed Timothy to raise up other disciples who in turn could build into the lives of others (2 Tim 2:2). This reminds us of when Jesus told his disciples to “go and make disciples” (Matt 28:19) and the reality that every disciple of Jesus is also to be a disciple-maker. As we journey through these texts, consider your own path of discipleship: how am I being discipled? and how might I be invested in someone else’s spiritual journey?

Epic Fail

July 2014 – September 2014

Our summer preaching series focuses on the Old Testament book of Judges. It was a period of time when God’s people repeatedly failed to trust God as Lord and instead followed the ways of the unbelieving world around them. The results were disastrous. But Judges is also an account of a faithful, merciful God who continually sends rescuers to save undeserving people from the mess of their failures, by His grace. Judges shows us the depth of God’s love and reminds us of how desperately we need the ultimate Savior, Jesus Christ.
