Faith; Freedom & Boundaries (Acts 15)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 15.

lighthouse-11The Jews demanded that the new Gentile converts to Christianity go through ritual circumcision, and follow the laws of Moses in order to receive faith and be welcomed in. Paul & Barnabas travel to Jerusalem to meet with the Apostles and church counsel to decide what was best. They wrote a letter saying they would do well to abstain from certain things, but circumcision was no longer required for faith. What kind of rules do we place on people before they come to faith today? What sort of expectations do we demand before someone can join our faith fellowship in 2017? Do your rules keep people out, or let people in? How do you show grace to your neighbor and shine the light of Christ?

He Shall Be Called The Prince of Peace

Merry Christmas from Crossroads Church of Greeley.

christmas_2016-copyPastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Isaiah 9:6. Jesus was born The Prince of Peace, as a baby and placed in an animal feeding trough. What kind of peace do you need in your life, and how do you seek it? Do you participate in ways that seek temporary peace, or do you give your life to the Prince of Peace? Only Jesus can give you true peace through faith in God. Sar Shalom is the Hebrew for commander of God’s true salvation peace. Jesus is our Sar Shalom. Give your life to God today.

Called & Set Apart (Acts 13)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 13.

lighthouse-13Paul and Barnabas were sent off by the Holy Spirit to Cyprus and Paphos. They went to Jewish Synagogues first, to speak to Jewish people about the grace of God. The Jews rejected them, so they turned to the Gentiles to be the light of the world. God’s light shines in times of persecution and hate. We see tremendous hate in our world today, but this is no time to shrink back from shining the grace of God into nearby communities. What is your role in being the light of Christ in the dark world that surrounds you?

Your Obedience Matters (Acts 10)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 10.

lighthouse-11We see the character of God through our acts of obedience. The Apostle Peter was summoned from Joppa to Caesarea so he could meet with Cornelius and his family. Cornelius was the first Gentile to receive the Holy Spirit and later began a church in that town. The Church of God is moving out of the Jewish community of faith toward the “ends of the earth” through expansion. Join us as look at how our obedience to the Spirit of God matters for issues of living well in the Kingdom of God. How have you put up a wall and excluded people from the Kingdom of God, rather than act in obedience to include more people?

God’s “B-Team” People (Acts 9)

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 9.

LIGHTHOUSEThis is one of the most famous chapters in the book of Acts. The terrorist, Saul, was still breathing murderous threats to the Church when the Lord Jesus, himself, knocked Saul off his personal mission. When the Lord got ahold of Saul, it took some “not-so-famous” people to rally around him and get him on the right mission. Today we talk about Ananias, Barnabas, the Widows and even Simon the tanner. These kind of “B-Team” players, are people like you and me, who play a role in the shaping of God’s Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven.

Wages

by Photos8.com

Values rule our lives, like self-control, sacrifice and planning. We long to be people free from financial debt, so that, in our freedom, we have margin for more ministry time and service. When we are financially burdened we don’t make time to serve others. Join us as we learn about financial freedom.
