2018-04-15 (Foreigner) Group Discussion Style - Audio
Last week we began a series of five Sundays devoted to the theme of "Foreigners." This Sunday we continue the theme with two videos and a large group discussion time. We'll receive information on current immigration trends and hear from Jenny Yang, the Vice President of Advocacy and Policy at World Relief. Then we will join in discussion led by Bob Van Aertselaer as we explore why God has a heart for the stranger; the foreigner, how Jesus demonstrated this love in every day actions, and...
2018-04-08(Foreigner in a Foreign Land) Sermon Style - Audio
We begin a series of five Sundays devoted to the theme of "Foreigners." As Christians, we, at least we here at GNF, do not advocate for wall building. We advocate for Christ, who, scripture tells us, 'broke down the dividing wall of hostility between two separate peoples in order to make them one people'. The "one" referenced here is God's people or, more pointedly, Jesus' people. It is why God said the foreigners, when they come to worship should worship in the manner he prescribed for...
2018-04-01(Easter Sunday) - Audio
We have all been afraid at one time or another. We all know what its like to experience angst or even panic. On Easter morning Jesus' friends, family, and disciples all had reason to feel fear, angst, and panic. They must have been asking, “Now what?”. That question has not changed. We, too, need to ask “Now what?”, “What shall we do?”, “What do I do?” Resurrection means “to get up”. Resurrection resists death. It resists just laying around. It resists the predisposition to give up and do...
November 12 2017 - Audio
This Sunday at GNF: Go back to a time when you were about to start something new; something that created some angst and apprehension. It's one thing to launch into something new with all your ‘ducks in a row’, it's another to begin with a serious handicap or disability. Imagine having to continue parenting without your eyesight. Scary, eh? Israel was about to start something new despite numerous disadvantages. They were going in blind. They had to trust that when God led everything would...
Parables: Small Stories, Big Ideas - Audio
We continue our summer series, Parables: Small Stories, Big Ideas. The story of our focus today is the Parable of the Laborers. Many people think that this story is about fairness but in truth Jesus is addressing the fact that his hearers are not really hearing what he is telling them. Picture it.....God came to earth and told stories to people about HIS KINGDOM and all they could think about was their own lives. What is amazing is that God did not leave them in their foolishness, he was,...
Rahab - Your God is God - Audio
This morning we continue our series on faith with special guest speaker, Pastor Kasey V. Kasey is a pastoral candidate visiting GNF this weekend with his wife, Liz. Today, with Kasey, we will take a closer look at Rahab the prostitute, "your God is God". We will look at both the belief and the actions or deeds that such belief encourages and promotes.
The Faith Of Abraham - Audio
We continue our series on Faith with our regular guest speaker, Roger S. Today we ll learn, from the story of Abraham, more about what an obedient faith looks like and what it requires. An obedient faith displays readiness and requires complete trust. An obedient faith also displays patience and requires a heavenly focus.
Jesus: The Gift That Keeps On Giving - Audio
While Jesus is the greatest gift given to God’s people, there are difficulties in receiving Him as our gift. The first involves accepting the Bible as being historical and Jesus as being God incarnate. The second involves our prideful expectation that similar to that of the first century Jews, God would send a deliverer who would save us from the sin of our world. Instead, Jesus comes to save us from our sin. When we by faith believe in what the New Testament says of Him and with humility...
