Palm Sunday (Luke 19:28-40) Dr. Tony Baron 2019-04-14

4/15/2019
More
Dr. Tony Baron invited us to use our imagination to consider what the celebration on Palm Sunday would have felt like as the people welcomed in their liberator. He talked about the Preparation, Procession, and Passion of Jesus, the King of Peace - and how so many missed him then... and how so many miss him today in this "time of visitation", too.

Getting "Un-Stuck" (Isaiah 43:16-21) Michael Swanson 2019-04-07

4/8/2019
More
Do you ever feel "stuck" spiritually? Pastor Michael Swanson invites us to look at the God who makes a way forward - as we remember what he has already done, and open ourselves to what "new thing" (Is. 43:19) he may be doing in our present reality.

Anxiety, Depression, and the Faithfulness of God (1 Kings 19:1-9)Michael Swanson 2019-03-31

4/3/2019
More
As we journey with Jesus in the wilderness - a place of focus and preparation, but also often a time of trial and hardship - we can sometimes find ourselves struggling with fear, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. How do we journey WITH GOD through those things? Michael Swanson looked at the life of Elijah (a man like us - James 5:17), who struggled with many of these same things - and how he was cared for and called to LIFE in the midst of his fear and anguish.

God's Love in the Desert (Isaiah 43:1-7) Nigel Morris 2019-03-24

3/26/2019
More
Sharing vulnerably from his own experience, Nigel Morris spoke about when things go wrong - where God's love is when we find ourselves in a desert season. Nigel suggested we have become so accustomed to the cross, we often fail to see it as the "irresponsible love of God" that it is.

God's Presence in the Desert (Exodus 33:1-18) Michael Swanson 2019-03-17

3/18/2019
More
Last week, we spent time with Jesus in the desert. This week, we continued to look at what God is up to in desert seasons by spending some time with Moses in the desert. Pastor Michael Swanson brought out the intensity of the Israelites' time of waiting for the Promised Land, and how when it was finally offered - but at the exclusion of God's presence with them - Moses said, "No deal". And God honored this hunger for God's presence, going with them and giving them rest.

Streams in the Desert (Isaiah 43:16-21, Luke 4:1-13) Michael Swanson 2019-03-10

3/12/2019
More
How do you navigate a spiritual "desert" season? What is God up to in those times? Michael Swanson looked at Jesus' 40 days in the desert and how it mirrors much of our own "desert" experience. This was the first Sunday of the 40-day Lent season (modeled itself after Jesus' time in the wilderness), and Michael asked very honest questions and temptations that might come up in a season like this.

Prayer That Doesn't Give Up (1 Samuel 1:1-20) Michael Swanson 2019-03-03

3/4/2019
More
Michael Swanson asks us the question, "Have we settled for the way things are?", looking at the life of Hannah in 1 Samuel, chapter 1. Hannah refused to give up, but instead took a stand and leaned further into prayer, desperate for God to "show up". We were invited to go "all in" like Hannah, looking to God to awaken a "sleepy" church.

Send Revival, Start With Me (Judges 6-7) Michael Swanson 2019-02-24

3/4/2019
More
Michael Swanson spoke about our church's vision this week - seeing our city transformed by the Love of Christ - and how that begins with transformation in each of our own individual lives. He spoke about the cycle we see in Judges, of a whole people group going through the cycle of spiritual decline and then revival - looking especially at the life of Gideon as one person who was transformed, and how that led to the transformation of an entire people.

The Importance of Awe in Following Jesus (Isaiah 6:1-8, Luke 5:1-11) Dr. Tony Baron 2019-02-17

2/20/2019
More
Guest preacher Dr. Tony Baron, who is the Dean of Azusa Pacific Seminary's San Diego campus, an author, and a leader in our family of churches, spoke about the "awe moments" we encounter in life, and how they point to the majesty and mystery of God. He pointed out how Isaiah and Peter experienced their own "awe moments" in the Scripture passages we read, and how those revealed both God's holiness and love.
