Hot Topics: 


In God We Trust

We live in a culture that has misplaced its trust and in an uncertain time because of conflict, sickness, turmoil, and more. The question is, when we feel anxious, who do we place our trust in? In this one-day sermon kit, using lessons from Daniel, help your congregation realize that no matter what, we are free to worship and put God first and that he is our only true source of hope that we should trust.

If I Am In Christ

We are constantly searching for our true identities. We look for it in our careers, our relationships, and our achievements. The problem is that it will never be found there. It is only when we are found in Christ that we begin to live into God’s design for our lives. Based on lessons from Ephesians, If I Am In Christ, is a four-week series that helps your church community see themselves through God’s eyes.

Rolling Up Our Sleeves: Serve Sunday

Jesus did not come to the earth in order to be served. Instead, He came to serve. Based on the story from John 13, Rolling Up Our Sleeves, is a one-day sermon that encourages your church that like Christ, through words and actions, we can serve a world that is hurting and in need by “washing feet” with the love of Christ.

Creatures of Habit

Each of us has a set of routines which can be helpful, but we can also easily get stuck in ruts that can set us back. We must be careful: What we believe determines what we do, and what we do determines who we become. This four week series explores how we can trade bad habits for good ones that glorify God and help us be the people God intends us to be.

Bible Stories/Theme:

Jonah: Grace for All 

As Christians, we’re called to share the good news of Jesus with everyone. But what about those people? You know, the ones you think don’t deserve it: people who don’t think like us, act like us, look like us or live like us. Take your church into a deep dive into the book of Jonah to discover the God with enough grace for all – even for us.

Abide In Me: Lessons from John 15

Abide in Me is a powerful four-week sermon series that explores how we can live a more full and Godly life when we follow Jesus’ command to abide in him. Share with your church and community how the Bible offers fundamental lessons from inside the vineyard: Jesus is the vine, God is the gardener, every life produces fruit, and abiding is a result of love.

Street Smarts

In all of God’s infinite wisdom, he has designed our world to work and function in a certain way. The key to living the full life in Christ is working with God’s intention rather than against it. In order to do this, we need Godly wisdom. Take your church and community on a journey to discover true godly wisdom that we can use every day to make decisions and live a fuller life.
