Sermons by Chris Bryant
As we go deeper in our commitment with Jesus, our previous values are replaced with Kingdom values. Our actual values (not necessarily the ones that we state) primarily determine the actions we take. Key Texts: Matthew 13:44-46
As we begin a new series on being “Deeply Committed,” let’s be bold! Being bold is less about my having courage and more about trusting God’s faithfulness. Key Text: Matthew 14:22-32 ESV
Love transforms and provides the support necessary for real transformation and change. Listen and join in as we talk about Transformative Love today. Key Text: 1 John 4:7-21 ESV
Let’s not neglect our physical health in this Getting Into Shape series. As we finish the series, let’s talk about taking care of our bodies. Key Text: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NLT
Recovery from difficulties, sickness, tragedy, or bad decisions requires a level of commitment and dedication that is life changing. Recovery also requires submission and dependence on something or someone outside of your self. Regardless of what you are recovering from, we are all in recovery from selfishness and sinfulness. Join in as we talk about the need and process for recovery. Key Texts: Psalm 23, Isaiah 38:16 ESV
Our heart is a powerful symbol of our soul and our “gut.” It represents a deep part of ourselves and normally signifies our emotion and passion. It is important that we guard our heart and help get our heart into shape as well. Key Texts: John 14:27, Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
What financial goals do you have for this year? Most people want to get their finances into shape but very few people actually do. Join in as Pastor Chris both challenges us about our financial health and provides practical wisdom to help us get it into shape. Key Text: Luke 12:15-21 NLT
What we think about and focus on determines so much of where we spend our time and what goals we do or do not accomplish. Mental health is KEY now more than ever. How healthy are you mentally? Join in as Pastor Chris shares practical tools to help us get into shape mentally.
Under the Christmas Tree we find our final stop on the Christmas Places theme. Let’s remember the final stop of our Christmas journey and the final stop of the original Christmas story this Christmas Eve.
Our third stop on the “Christmas Places” theme is “Family Dinner (Eat, Argue… or Both?).” The family dinner table at Christmas (or otherwise) can be full of fun, laughter, and memories. It can also be a time of tension, arguing, and fussing. What would it take for us to redeem these moments? What might our Christmas Family Dinner look like this year? It will probably be different as some of our family may not be present.
