    The Kingdom and the Cross – Discovering the Lordship of Christ

    7 Week Series

    Discovering the Lordship of Christ: What does the cross stand for in this modern world? We see crosses all over – not just adorning churches and headstones, but also everywhere from the elaborately gilded baroque crosses in museums to the enormous diamond studded jewelry worn by pop stars. Is the cross a religious relic to be studied like the pyramids of Egypt? Is it an icon of pop culture? Or is it truly a reminder of the sacrifice of a Savior?

    1. The Kingdom Comes with a Cross
    2. The Surprise of the Cross
    3. The Covenant and the Cross
    4. The Coronation on the Cross
    5. The Accomplishment of the Cross

    The Fruit of the Spirit – Cultivating a Heart for God

    10 Week Series

    Our Most Requested Series 

    Spirituality is a hot topic. Many who will not admit to being religious are willing to say that they are “spiritual.” But what does that really mean? The word spiritual can be used to mean almost anything a person wants and in the end may mean hardly anything and make very little difference in the way a person lives. Spiritual gifts for a number of years were a preoccupation in a number of churches. Then spiritual disciplines generated a good deal of interest. The neglected dimension of the spiritual that God’s people need to pay attention to is the fruit of the Spirit.

    2. Love: 1 Corinthians 13
    3. Joy: 1 Peter 1:1-9

    Spiritual Pathways – Disciplines for Growth

    6 Week Series

    Disciplines for Growth: The importance of rediscovering spiritual disciplines is that while God seeks us and calls us to Himself, He also requires us to seek Him as a way of life, all of our lives. Spiritual disciplines are wonderful pathways by which we can seek God and develop a closer walk with Him. People through the centuries have found spiritual disciplines are to be tools that strengthen our hearts, open the Scriptures before us and provide a firm path for spiritual growth.
