Acts chapter 4 is about the beginning of trouble for the disciples. They perform a healing at the temple, and begin speaking about the resurrection. The religious authorities, the Sanhedrin, resist the Kingdom of God moving out through the Church. They tell Peter & John to stop proclaiming the name of Jesus. Peter & John resist. How do you share your faith with others? Will your faith story tell others about Jesus?

Some people think all roads lead to God. Some people think that since Jesus died, everyone is automatically saved. Some people think all religions are the same and all roads lead to God. Who’s right, and how do we know who is right? If one is right, does that make the others wrong? What happens to people outside the faith? Join us this week as we explore whether all roads lead to God or not.
In the book of Judges, chapter 16, we find Samson in a real bind. Eyes poked out, hands bound by bronze shackles and grinding on a wheel for the Philistines, he is bald and out of strength and out of options.

What can we learn on this Father’s Day about walking in the ways of faith, rather than slipping down the slope of sinful repetition? Join us as we discover the faithful way to live, through the poor example of Samson.

Join us for a conversation on God’s intent with you, and become pleasantly surprised that He has grand plans for your life, and for HIs Kingdom, which includes your life.
Does God always answer prayers the way we pray them? Is God responsible to answer everything we pray about? Some say that God always answer prayers, sometimes with a yes, sometimes with a maybe and sometimes with a no. Could there be anything in your life that may be blocking your prayer life with God? Could it be that we may not like the answers that God gives us when we pray? These questions are explored in this weekend sermon on “Why?”.
