Two Undercover Disciples and a Funeral

The Christian faith is based entirely on a single event in history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But what if no one had ever known about that event? What if the circumstances of Jesus’ burial had been different? What if His body hadn’t been laid in a tomb, but rather tossed in the city dump like so many other executed criminals? If there had been no tomb, no one could have known that a tomb was empty.  Join us for the final message…

Sit Down

Before Jesus performed one of His most well-known miracles — the feeding of 5,000 — He required a small act of faith — a little thing — from the crowd. Jesus may be calling us to “sit down” in our marriage, parenting, job, congregation, etc., before He does a mighty act.  After this Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that…

A Widow and Her Offering

As Jesus watched people bring forward their offerings in the temple, He pointed out a shocking contrast. While many people made a show of their extravagant gifts and offerings, it was a quiet and unassuming poor widow who made the biggest offering of all. Join us for part four of The Little Things where we discover the truth about the little money we have.  And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats…

A Boy and His Slingshot

The life and rule of King David are recorded in the Old Testament. He is seen as a hero of great faith who overcame many obstacles during his reign. However, David’s face is clearly seen in a scene before his coronation. As he fought Goliath, God used his weakness so others will see and trust in His strength. Join us for the third message in The Little Things to understand how a foolish boy was able to shame a great…

A Fugitive and His Walking Stick

When we look back on the life of Moses, we think of some of the most amazing events recorded in the Bible. We see him bravely leading the Israelites out of captivity, parting the Red Sea, walking down the mountain with the ten commandments. God used Moses to accomplish some BIG things, but it all started with Moses obeying one little command to lay down his walking stick. No big deal, right? Join us for the second message in The Little Things to learn how God makes much of the…

A Woman and Her Dough

Leaven is used throughout the Bible as an example of a little thing that makes a big change.  Jesus warned His followers against the “leaven of the pharisees,” but also compared the Kingdom of God to leaven worked into dough.  From both a positive and a negative perspective, Jesus wants us to know that little things matter. Join us for the first message in “The Little Things” as we learn the secret of leaven and how small ways of being or thinking spread to create a lasting effect.  “If…
