Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on the book of Ruth where Ruth starts gleaning from Boaz’s field. It’s a beautiful example of God’s provision and providence. God cares for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widows. And he reminds us that we were all once sojourners before being saved by Him. And so, he commands us to take care of …
 
We were not created to try to be righteous. Our roots in God make us righteous. It's God that fills our needs at the root and then turns them into fruit that we can give to others. God created us to rest in him and receive from him first before we do anything else externally. Why? Because It's impossible to give away something that we do not have. …
 
Lead Pastor Dan Acker (NASB 2020) Revelation 3:1-6 Matthew 7:21-23 JOHN CALVIN: “The gospel is not a doctrine of the tongue, but of life.

Let's get down to earth. Here, life is not perfect - because of satan; and life is also not impossible - because of Jesus. We are here on the earth for one reason - to cultivate a kingdom culture wherever we go. The first step is to allow God to grow His culture in the garden of our hearts. We meet every Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Rogers 18 Theatre. …

Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on Ruth where Naomi and Ruth return to Bethlehem. Ruth enters the city as an outsider from Moab, a group of people constantly fighting with God's people.

What would happen if we aligned our lives with our real priorities? After all, isn't that what Jesus did? He set aside the expectations of religion for the risk of relationships.

When we prioritize praise in our life our perspective changes for the better!

Worship Director Justin Jackson is talking about worship. In Revelation 5, we see every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them worshiping him who sits on the throne and the Lamb who was slain.
