Majesty: God Is God, I Am Not

4/15/2019
More
Being made in God's image, we can be certain that the more we come to know God, Who He is and what He is like, the closer we come to answering the question: "Who am I?" The problem is there are more versions of God than there are flavors of ice cream. But when we look to the Scriptures (God's self-disclosure), Who is the God we find there? Is He anything like our own interpretations of Him?

Made In His Image: Racism

4/5/2019
More
In Genesis 12, God blesses Abraham so that he would be a blessing to all of the nations. God's plan from the beginning, then, has been that every nation, tribe, people, and language would be restored to Him and to each other, worshiping before His eternal throne. In this teaching, the Youth Ministry at FPCLW explores how these truths address the sin of racism.

Made In His Image: Abortion

Made In His Image: Created With Purpose

3/22/2019

Made in His Image: Sexuality

3/8/2019
More
One of the ways our culture attempts to find identity is through science. For instance, according to Charles Darwin human beings are the product, not of a loving God, but of time, chance, and the evolution and survival of the fittest. This would mean that there is no purpose or plan for us. We are not special. When it comes to sexuality, then, we believe that we can do whatever we want to with our bodies because they ultimately have no higher meaning or purpose. But should we really buy into...

Scripture: God is Speaking, I Am Transformed

3/8/2019
More
Sometimes we can view the Bible as if it is just an old spiritual text book with useless information. The Bible, though, speaks of itself using very different language. Could it be that the Word of God is more than meets the eye?

Resurrection: God is Jesus, I am Found

3/4/2019
More
We might be tempted to think that Jesus was simply a good teacher who taught us good things about how to be a good teacher. But, in actuality, Jesus had a lot more to say about Himself than about morals. Is what He said true?

Scripture: God is Speaking, I Am Enlightened

3/4/2019
More
Many compare our knowledge of God to a group of blind men feeling an elephant. Each of the blind men make a guess about what it is their feeling, but since they are unable to see the big picture, they can't know anything for sure about the elephant. But is this true? Are we really at such a loss when it comes to out knowledge about who God is and what He is like?

Made In God's Image: God is Glorious, I Am His Reflection

2/8/2019
More
One of the identities that our culture gives to our young people is that of 'reflection'. We are a reflection upon our parents, upon our schools and teachers, and upon ourselves. While reflecting these people and things bring pressure and stress into our lives, they are nothing compared to our own God-given purpose: being a reflection upon the God the universe.

Revelation: God is Real, I am Evidence

1/18/2019
More
Is God a fact? Is He real? Is there any evidence for God? If there is, what does that mean for the things that we base our lives upon such as our performance before others and our achievements?

Creation: God is Creator, I am His Creation

1/11/2019
More
Beginning a new series called "God is ____, I am ____", we are looking at some fundamental truths about Who God is and what that means for who we are and how we live. We begin by asking "Who am I?" What is our identity? How do we come to know our authentic self? To answer these questions, it is helpful to look to our beginnings.

The Impossible

1/5/2019
More
What do you think of when you hear the word 'Christmas'? When Luke heard the word Christmas, he thought about pigs flying, sneezing with your eyes open, and being able to lick your own elbow. In other words, Luke thought about the impossible being made possible.

Origin Story

1/4/2019
More
In our new Advent series, we ask what Matthew thought of when he heard the word Christmas. When we think of Christmas, we might think of Santa and presents. Matthew, on the other hand, thought about a hero going to war to save hostages from danger.

Why Ecclesiastes?

11/12/2018
More
Unfortunately, Ecclesiastes ends where it begins. Solomon throws up his hands, saying how pointless everything is. But doesn't Solomon's message contradict what the Bible says about the meaning of life? We hear another voice in Ecclesiastes with some answers.

Something Ideal

10/13/2018
More
For Solomon, finding something good in a horrible, frustrating, disappointing life is like finding a needle in a haystack. In Chapter 4 of Ecclesiastes, Solomon finds the needle.

10/6/2018
More

The Facts of Life

9/21/2018
More
Solomon finally finds something of worth in life: wisdom! He finds that if he applies himself and tries to live according to life's big picture, he will end with a good outcome. But does life really play by those rules? Solomon seeks to find the answer in Ecclesiastes 2:12-26.

Larger Than Life

9/7/2018
More
Solomon, in his search for purpose, experiences different kinds of pleasure. Solomon lives bigger and parties harder than any of us could have ever imagined. In Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 we see his conclusion on the matter.

Thinking Hurts

8/24/2018
More
Solomon says the secret to growing in wisdom is paying attention to the world around us. But when we pay attention to life, we realize a host of unsolvable problems. Does Solomon have a solution? We find out as we look at Ecclesiastes 1:12-18.
