Join us for the final week in our series on The Two Ways - Jesus' teaching in the Sermon on the Mount. This week we review what we've learned in the series and now consider the role of temptation in the life of Jesus and in the life of believers today. Jesus faced 3 direct temptations from the evil one during a difficult earthly human moment; we look at each situation to see how He overcame the root of each temptation and responded with scripture. Ultimately, we can choose to obey the Father, or we can choose to provide for ourselves. One will lead to life, and the other will lead to death.

Join us as we consider salt and the imaging Jesus used while talking with the crowds at the Sermon on the Mount. What did salt mean to the Israelites? Explore how having a deep, shared relationship with others - being "salt" in the ancient context - can positively impact our lives, others lives, and our testimony for Christ in our present day.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus presents to us a new reality - one we all have to deal with, one way or another, and He does it through blessings. The blessings are not commandments, it is an announcement about what reality actually is - and He leaves it for us to respond.

Week 7 of our series in Philippians. How do we handle new circumstances? How do we find and/or determine our path forward as we live through uncertain times and an unknown future? We are commanded to rejoice, be reasonable, and to make our reasonableness known. How we, as Christians, respond when we are wronged helps the unbelieving world respond to Jesus. Join us as we consider what to do when we are "at anchor off the coast" and how our reasonableness brings unity and glory to God, furthering His Kingdom on Earth.

Week 1 of our series in The Letters of John. Today we focus on the opening verses of 1st John, written about 50-60 years after Jesus' ascension by one of the last remaining eyewitnesses at that time of Jesus' life and ministry. These verses show us what John considered important to share with his fellow believers - testifying to the reality of Jesus, who he saw with his eyes and touched with his hands, to proclaim the eternal life through Him, that we may live in fellowship with God, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and each other.

Part 8 of our Colossians series. The book of Philemon is a personal letter from Paul, written and carried at the same time as the book of Colossians, addressing a situation of slavery and debt. Debt is considered bad however, often we don't owe enough of a debt - of love. Paul brings a clear example of how we should and can radically love others. Love does no wrong to a neighbor.
