What does it mean for our lives in faith when we give financially to the work of the Lord? Do you have a spiritual practice of giving a portion of your finances to the local church? Do you give with joy, or reluctantly? Do you give on a regular basis, or only when you can afford to give? What would it look like for you to begin practicing financial giving on a regular schedule and with an increasing amount each year? Do you know that the Lord will bless you when you give as a spiritual discipline? It’s true.

Jesus teaches us to replace worry with worship. Seek first, the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you. How do you practice worship? What are your best practices when it comes to overcoming the mess of this world? On this Mother’s Day we come to celebrate the gift of Worship and focus on worship in Spirit and in Truth.
What are your spiritual practices that keep you grounded with the Lord Jesus? Do you have a regular reading routine with the Bible? Do you have a Bible reading app? When is your favorite time of day to spend time in God’s Word? Whenever it may be, be sure to continue.

There are so many religions and different views of faith in the world today. How do we know which one is the one to lead us to God? How does one know if a religion is teaching the right doctrine in order to know God personally? We explain this to you in our Easter 2017 sermon, Being Made Right With God. You will enjoy testimony from Michelle Allen also, as she describes her living faith in God. If the resurrection is true, then Christian faith is true.
Paul the Apostle, is now on the island of Malta where a snake wraps around his hand. He is not overcome by the snake bite, just like we are not overcome by the serpent’s sting of death. Satan has no power over the believer in Jesus Christ. Paul moves to healing everyone on the island, just like the beginning of the book of Acts where the Spirit of God is active in healing his people. Then Paul spends 2 more years waiting trial before Caesar in Rome. He speaks to all who would listen. How do you share your faith with others? Do you have the right to be heard in their lives?
Paul is being transported from Caesarea to Rome on a ship in the sea. The course of the journey takes the boat through the Adriatic Sea where the boat meets it’s fate against the storm.

How are you leading with faith over your fears? Join us this week as we look at how God is with us in the storms of life.
