Daniel 4 - Pride



Pride is a sin we struggle with. Some of us are more outspoken with our pride, others of us are quiet. Pride is not a respecter of temperaments or personality. Pride is subtle and insidious. In this passage, we learn how God healed Nebuchadnezzar of this deadly disease and how that God, out of his love, may heal of us pride the same way.

In Daniel 3, we learn the answer.

John 9 - Born Blind



Close your eyes. Imagine life in the darkness of absolute blindness. A vast world exists that you can not see. Similar to physical blindness, the Bible tells us we are all born spiritually blind. We can not see the true identity of Jesus unless God supernaturally opens our eyes.

John 8:30-38 - Freedom from Sin



In the
Avengers movie, Loki uses his scepter to take over the heart of Hawk Eye, one of the film's heroes. While Hawk Eye's mind and body are under his control, his will is under the direction of a sinister force. The movie is a story about comic book super heroes but there is biblical truth behind it.

Where can we find freedom from this slavery. Join us as Jesus tells us where we find "Freedom from Sin."

John 7 - Jesus Divides

Jesus Divides.mov from Kurt Trucksess on Vimeo.



When you bring Jesus into a conversation, you instantly polarize the room. Some people love him, others hate him. In our desire to avoid offending others, we keep quiet about Jesus and wait for an opportune moment. Is that the way the Jesus presented himself? Was the early church known for waiting for just the right moment so they were sure not to offend? It was just the opposite. They brought Jesus into conversations expecting he would divide the room. That is the way the church grew.

John 3:17-21 - What About Those Who Don't Believe in Jesus?



In 2011, Rob Bell, the senior pastor of Mars Hill Church in Michigan, published a controversial book titled, "
Love Wins: A book about heaven, hell and the fate of every person who ever lived." In it, Robs says, "What if the story of heaven and hell we have been taught is not, in fact, what the bible teaches…. how could it be good news if billions suffer in hell while only a select few go to heaven?" Rob proposes that hell is a type of reform school from which everyone will eventually graduate. Is this true? Join us as we let the Bible tell us about heaven, hell and the fate of every person who ever lived.

Song of Solomon - God, Sex and Culture


(manuscript will post by Wednesday, January 11,2012)

When you think about the topic of sex, what comes to mind? Is it something dirty? Is it something from which to protect yourself and our children? Since this topic is so volatile, before we study the Song of Solomon, we are taking a week to learn how both the culture
and the church have twisted our understanding of sex. We cap the study off with a God centered picture of how to express our sexual identity.
