    SunSundayFebFebruary28th2016 Exodus: The Place of Comfort Becomes Our Trap
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment
    As we begin a new series in Exodus we will have a series of messages on Faith, Fear & Deliverance. Today starts with a lot of backstory and history. Check back to this blog post after Easter and I hope to have had enough time to put more resources together for anyone interested in knowing more about this period of Israel's history.

    In today's message we will see how God provided protection and growth during the Jewish people's stay in Egypt, even though the eventual state they lived was slavery. They grew from only 70 people to over 2,000,000 in just around 400 years. They were now ready to go back home and take the promised land of Israel. In this story we will see that sometimes our place of comfort can become our trap. Where God may have wanted us to be for a time or rest and healing isn't where He wants us to stay. The way He may have provided for us in the past may not be what we need to depend upon for the future.

    SunSundayFebFebruary21st2016 Duties of a Citizen

    Philippians 3: 17-21

    In today's message we will see how our mindset often determines our actions. God has said that if we are a child of God then our home is no longer this world. We are simply passing through. Our home, our citizenship, is in heaven. So who do we act more like: a citizen of heaven or someone more concerned with the things of this life?

    SunSundayFebFebruary14th2016 Love Is... Displaying Love
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment
    The sermon audio and full description will be up this week, but in today's sermon I will reference "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. It's a best-selling book that has helped many couples discover the best ways to show love towards each other and to also realize the expectations you have of others.

    If you would like to start down that path without first reading the book, they have developed a website that uses a quick survey to identify your "love language". Do this on your own for a better personal understanding or with your significant other to strengthen your ability to effectively display love.

    SunSundayFebFebruary7th2016 Love Is.... Defining Love
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment
    In today's culture the concept of "love" has been used in so many different ways that many people don't really know what love truly is. This is the first of a 2-part series looking at love. Today we're going to talk about Defining Love and on February 14th we will talk about Displaying Love. We've pasted a number of articles below so during the week you can further explore not on the definitions of love but how they are lived out in our everyday lives.
