  • Rerun: Accept One Another

    Once a month, we have Discipleship Emphasis Sundays where we watch a video from the Bible Project instead of hearing a talk. So this week, enjoy a talk from 2022 you may not have heard before.The Bible portrays the church as a diverse community that live thick lives together. This can be rather messy, but very possible. Living together as God’s family involves bearing with one another, carrying the burdens of others by caring and coming alongside them, even when there are times we are not in agreement on how the gospel is to be lived out.View the full service on our YouTube channel.

  • 11. Full of Faith

    Christ is the foundation of our faith. We live by faith and not by sight. So many of the heroes of faith did not see what was promised, yet they persevered. Through Christ we have the ability to persevere with the greater hope that we will see what He promised.Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)Watch the full service on our YouTube channel:
  • 10. Fully Committed

    Because of Jesus, His one sacrifice for us is all we need for forgiveness and new life in Him. As we cling to these promises, we encourage each other to hold on to this hope that is found only in Christ. Because Jesus is fully committed to us, we take that and be fully committed also to one another. Verse: For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy…. Therefore, let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:14, 24)Watch the full service on YouTube: season for Outdoor Worship at Discovery has begun, and you may notice that talks recorded outside sound accordingly.
  • Rerun: Bear One Another's Burdens

    This week (April 28) was Discipleship Emphasis Sunday, which involves a Bible Project video and small group discussion, so there is no new talk to share. Please enjoy this old but still relevant talk from 2022, preached by Pastor Paul Sausser.Galatians 6:1-10In giving a picture of true love for one another, Jesus’ law of love includes carrying each other’s burdens. The church hasn’t always done this well—we can do this better. We need to get humanly close enough to see what those burdens are, and we have to be a person who is connecting deeply to God so He can empower us, open our eyes, and prompt us to help bear these burdens, great or small, of our sisters and brothers.View the full service on our YouTube channel.
