06/30/19- Go: The Waiting- Pastor Adrian Mills

3/10/2021 GO: The Waiting Acts 1:4-5 Just as Jesus is set to commission his disciples, he gives a confusing command: WAIT (Acts 1:4) Acts 1:8 Jesus making a promise and with the promise comes three realities….. 1. Not my power “But you will receive [my] power…” Acts 1:8 2. Not my timing “…when the Holy Spirit comes on you” Acts 1:8 3. Not my purpose “…you will be MY witnesses” Acts 1:8 The important question for us…. What are you waiting for? Biblically,...


06/16/19- The Science of Temptation- Part 2- Dr. Brian Charette

3/10/2021 The Science of Temptation, Part 2 There is a plan in place to hurt you and it will kill you if it can. That sobering idea is the primary reason for this two-part series on temptation that concludes today: The Science of Temptation. Temptation comes at you with a structure, a strategy, even a science. This series asks: What is your plan to fight the temptation you face? For, while temptation itself is not sin, it wants to lead you to sin and, then, to...


03/07/21- Road to the Cross Part 1: Sin Invasion- Pastor Adrian Mills

3/6/2021 Many of us don’t understand where the road to the cross begins. For some, we may think the road to the cross begins on Palm Sunday, or the Holy Week accounts in Scripture.-For others, we may think the road to the cross begins in a manger in Bethlehem, or in the Gospel accounts of the New Testament.-But that’s not where the road to the cross begins. Genesis 3:1-13 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said...

02/21/21- For What? Part 3: We’re for Compassion- Pastor Adrian Mills

2/20/2021 It’s far more important for those in our community to understand what we are FOR rather than what we are AGAINST. It’s not even close. Week 1: We are for Jesus. Week 2: We are for holiness. This week: We are for compassion. What is compassion? It literally means “to suffer with”. We know that it must always involve action, so we often say that compassion is “love in action”. The story of God is marked by a God of compassion. -“The Lord, the Lord, the...


02/14/21- For What? Part 2: We’re for Holiness- Pastor Adrian Mills

2/13/2021 For What? Part 2: We’re for Holiness It’s far more important for those in our community to understand what we are FOR rather than what we are AGAINST. It’s not even close. Last week: We are for Jesus. Being “for Jesus” is about an intimate relationship not some ideal reverence. This week: We are for holiness. There are many things about holiness we may not understand. Let’s focus on two important questions:-What is holiness?-Why does holiness matter? 1...

Who the enemy is not (& why we get it wrong) “For our struggle is not against...


01/24/21- Thy Kingdom Come: Marching Orders- Pastor Adrian Mills

1/23/2021 When it comes to the Kingdom, the call is to participation, not observation. Acts 1:4-84 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” 6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the...
