The Well: Cindy Lou Who

We all have Grinches in our lives. As believers we have to decide if we are going to love the difficult people like Jesus loves us when we are difficult. In this weeks special episode our host, Dustin Bryson, invites Cindy Lou Who into the podcasting studio to discuss her visit this weekend to Morning Star Church.


Christmas at the Movies: Christmas with the Kranks

Luther and Nora Krank felt like skipping Christmas. Their daughter joined the Peace Corps and was bound for Peru. It was their first year as empty-nesters. They wanted walk away from the chaos, the expectations, the staggering amount of money they usually spent, and treat themselves to a cruise. Most of us can empathize, right? For lots of reasons, we often find ourselves wanting to skip the holidays and just go on with our normal lives. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike reminds us that,...


The Well: Christmas Shoppe with Jennifer Long

Every year we have the opportunity to gather for ourselves at Christmas or do for others. At MSC we offer multiple opportunities to give back throughout the holidays but none is bigger than Christmas Shoppe. So, we invited Pastor Jennifer into the studio to chat about this powerful opportunity and fill us in on what it's all about and how each of us can get involved.


Christmas at the Movies: Christmas Vacation

They say the best stories are real; and the real story of Christmas will never be topped--a God who loved and desperately yearned for relationship with humanity so much that He became human flesh and lived among us! It’s no wonder many contemporary storytellers continue to point to the deep, biblical truths communicated in that first Christmas story. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike kicks off a new series. We’ll look through the lens of some of our favorite Christmas movies to discover...


How To Train Your Dollar | Part 4: Pastor Mike Schreiner

How to Train Your Dollar: Make it Do Good Just like we can train certain dogs to guide blind persons, rescue people trapped in rubble, and sniff out drugs or bombs, so we can train our money to do good. In fact, the Apostle Paul (who made his living making tents, not taking up offerings after he preached) said that God wants to make every one of us rich in every way so we can be generous on every occasion. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike puts an exclamation point at the end of this...


How to Train Your Dollar | Part 3: Pastor Keith & Pastor Mike

Have you ever had a really good dog? One that is more than just a great friend but more like a partner? Working on ranches, herding sheep, guarding fences, there is nothing like having a "good ole dawg" working for you. As we are making comparisons between training dogs and dollars, it occurs to me that our dollars should be working for us like a good Australian Shepherd on a cattle ranch. Join us this weekend to learn about how you can train your dollars to work for you and more than that,...


How to Train Your Dollar | Part 2: Pastor Mike Schreiner

Make It Behave Dog trainers at Obedience Schools teach you they’re not really training the dog. They’re training the owner. It’s all about how the owner follows through. The same principle applies to your finances. Money always behaves. It will always do what you tell it to do; go where you want it to go; stay where you want it to stay. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike gives YOU the training YOU need in order to MAKE YOUR DOLLAR BEHAVE.


How To Train Your Dollar | Part 1: Pastor Mike Schreiner

Obedience Has Its Rewards Pet owners will all agree: training their animal is essential. It’s why so many new dog owners take their new puppies to Obedience School. The up-front investment pays long-term dividends. Fewer pieces of furniture and clothing get chewed up; and fewer “accidents” on the carpet to clean up. This same principle applies to lots of areas of our lives, including our finances. Our money needs to be trained… to behave, to work for you, and to do good in the world. Join...


The Well: A New Sermon Series and More

In this first episode of, THE WELL, Pastor Mike Schreiner chats with our host, Dustin Bryson, about our new sermon series and Vision Night.


Unmasked | Part 4: Pastor Mike Schreiner

Unmasked, Part 4 - Good Grief Imagine moving from your homeland, then your spouse dies, followed by both your two children. That's the story of Naomi, which we find in the Old Testament book of Ruth. Few of us can identify with that amount of loss, yet we all experience loss over the course of our lives--our youthfulness; some of our dreams; our false-sense of control. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike shares how the story of Naomi and her daughter-in-law, Ruth, UNMASKS what we really...


Unmasked | Part 3: Pastor Mike Schreiner

UNMASKED, Part 3; When Faith Stops Working Distance runners talk about hitting The Wall, a place of total exhaustion. Yet if they keep pressing forward, they eventually push through The Wall and everything becomes easier. Likewise, as we run the marathon of our spiritual journey, each of us will eventually hit a place where everything feels hard and even God seems distant. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike UNMASKS the idea that the spiritual journey is a perpetual bed of roses, and equips...


Unmasked | Part 2: Pastor Jennifer Long

We all wear masks at some point in our lives. Some of us more than others. Some of them are intentional masks we put on to try to cover up the parts of us that we think are inferior or don’t measure up. Many times we have masks, though, that we don’t even know we are wearing. But God knows who we really are underneath all those masks. And God wants us to know who we are, too! Actually, the more we know who we are the more we are able to know who God is. Join us this weekend as we learn to...


Unmasked | Part 1: Over-Ruled - Pastor Mike Schreiner

Rules. Written and unwritten. We have them in every area of our lives: in our relationships; at school or the office; when we drive down the road; even in religion. Consider that Judaism has 623 rules, and that doesn’t even include rules for marriage and asset ownership. But here’s the Good News. Jesus UNMASKED RELIGION. He simplified the rules. A lot! Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike unpacks the deeper reason why Jesus gave us a single, Golden Rule which OVER-RULED all the others.


Vision | Reaching For It (wk 4) - Pastor Mike Schreiner

You’ve heard the phrase, “really reaching for it.” We all have an “it” that we reach for. So does God… sort of. You see, God’s “it” is actually people—persons who haven’t experienced salvation. So how does God “reach” these persons? Through other people—you and me. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike explains how God has intentionally placed each of us to extend His REACH, and why we must commit ourselves to Really Reach for It.


Vision | Rich Relationships (wk 3) - Pastor Mike Schreiner

When asked about the most important of all commandments, Jesus wasted no time responding. He said it was all about relationships--"Love God with all you have and love others as yourself." Why? Because that's all we take into eternity. We don't take our possessions or accomplishments. Eternity is about having perfect relationships with God, ourselves, and others. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike teaches us how to begin experiencing a little heaven on earth by building ridiculously rich...


Vision | Refresh (wk 1) - Pastor Mike Schreiner

The Pause that Refreshes In 1929, Coca-Cola launched a new, three-year ad campaign: The Pause that Refreshes. But the original "Pause that Refreshes" campaign was launched by none other than God at the very beginning of time. After six intense days of creating the universe, God created a seventh day called "Sabbath." The purpose was to stop, rest, and delight. Join us this weekend as Pastor Mike returns from his sabbatical and shares why God still campaigns--even commands--His people to...


Backpack Impact (wk 3) Pastor Steven Mitchell

Mental Health Today’s young folks have a ton of issues to deal with. When we prepare ourselves, our family, and our friends for school, one thing we must keep in mind is, mental health is a real issue for our young people. Whether it is depression, anxiety, or any other mental health factor, we are all impacted either directly or indirectly. We need to remove the stigma of mental health so that we can be a community of faith which rallies around our kids just like Jesus does.


Backpack Impact (wk 2) Pastor Keith Scarborough

The Internet Issue This week we continue our series Backpack Impact. Throughout the year Morning Star Church helps kids who receive free breakfast and lunch at school during the week by providing food to backpack home and eat over the weekend. While this is a great way to serve our community we wanted to take a few weeks to talk through the main issues our kids are facing beyond hunger. To that end, we interviewed several local education professionals and discovered the three main problems...


Backpack Impact (wk 1) Pastor Jennifer Long

It’s time for school! Time to get back to some structure and get back to the basics. We want our kids to have the right things in their backpack so they’re ready to head off to school. But our kids are up against an awful lot these days. The constant barrage of social media, technology, the struggles with bullying, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression - it's just a lot more to deal with and is having a greater impact than just a decade ago. How can we as parents, grandparents, educators, and...
