    Finding Hope Ministries
    Dr. Nathan Merrill, founder and director of Finding Hope Ministries in Romania, is our special guest today. Nathan is accompanied by his wife, Anca, their son, and the rescued children who live in their orphanage. They'll be sharing about their mission, about the impact our partnership with them is having, and about what God is doing in Romania to redeem the lives of abandoned children.

Psalms LogoThe beauty of the Psalms, which make up the Bible's hymn book, is that they deal with practically every kind of emotion with which we deal. Like many song lyrics, some Psalms are raw with pain or even anger; some are loud with jubilant praise and adulation; some bring comfort during times of fear or sadness; and some declare trust in our awesome, sovereign God. We are spending time in five of these special songs where God's truth and our life experiences collide.
 



Church, Who Needs It? LogoWho needs the church? That’s a fair question. Certainly, those who are not part of the church don’t need it, and obviously, many who were once part of the church don’t think they need it. Just how important, if at all, is the church of Jesus Christ? We’re going to answer those questions, and a host of others that are on the minds of many.

Joseph IconThis is a journey through the life of one of the Old Testament's most prominent characters. The main character of the story is Joseph; the main struggle in the story is adversity; and the hero of the story is God. The same outcome of the story can become ours as we learn the lessons of Joseph's life.
 



simply Christmas iconWhat if this Christmas, you could peer through all the surrounding hype and get a renewed vision of the significance of this celebration? It's hard in our culture to make Christmas "simple," but it is very possible to understand it, "simply." From the four gospels, Pastor Mack is going to use the recorded accounts of Jesus' birth - and His life - to unwrap this great gift so we can truly receive it as our own.

 



Malachi LogoAs God's final spokesman of the Old Testament, Malachi comes to the people of God to call them out for their lackadaisical commitment to God, and to call them back to a vibrant and living relationship with Him. He's a no nonsense prophet who enjoys sarcasm, but his message cuts to the bone. We are going to meet this "messenger" and delve deeply into God's answers to seven questions His people had for Him.

Brave LogoA study through Paul's letter to the Philippians, and the topic is something we all long for: courage.

 



Jesus, Savior LogoWe are diving into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The goal of our series is to answer three "why" questions; and their answers are profoundly critical for our lives.

 

 



Next Level Logo

We're venturing into what God offers as a more superior way to live, a life of generosity, that brings with it power, freedom, joy, and not guilt.

Great Expectations LogoFor the next five Sundays, including Christmas day, we're revisiting those first few pages of Matthew's and Luke's gospels where the account of Jesus' birth is accurately told. And our goals for the series study are to highlight the critical importance of God coming to the earth as a man and why it should make a difference in each of our lives. It is necessary to focus on the real meaning of Christmas if one has any hope of not being consumed by all of the"other things" of the season. And if your heart is open, keeping Jesus as "the reason for the season" is possible.



Identity LogoIn a culture of competing voices telling us who we are and who we should be, just exactly who am I? And more specifically, who does God say that I am? This 4-part series, Identity, reveals what it means to live our lives “in Christ” and the joy and victory of the abundant life He offers.

Ask any Christian and they'll agree that one of the hardest parts of their Christian walk is consistency. There are times when we cool down, times when we drift, times when we look up and say, "How did I get this far away from God?" Reality is, we have to be very intentional about our relationships with God in order to grow spiritually and maintain a consistent obedience in the same direction.



We are trying to gain senses of perspective, hope, and needed action in the midst of national unrest. We have watched videos of the police shootings of black citizens, the resulting protests, and the unspeakable murders of eight police officers by ambush. How do we process all of this and what do we do?

He said IconToday is the start of what’s traditionally called “Holy Week.” Palm Sunday is always the Sunday before Easter because it commemorates the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. It would be His last week of life, for on Friday, He would be crucified. It would be a tragic story if that were the ending. But it’s not!

 


Every Thing We Need Icon

Peter answers the questions that we all ask ourselves: Where is all of this going? And what does it mean for me in my daily life? And his answers are profoundly game-changing if we will grasp and apply them in our lives.

 



 

Christmas time iconYou have to admit, there's no other time of the year like Christmas time. Though it's annual, it's also unique each year. It's more than a day; it's a 'season' of rollercoaster emotions, memories, and worries, all compacted into 4 to 5 weeks. Christmas time is a magnifying glass that exaggerates all that is good - and not so good - in our lives. But the beauty and mystery of Christmas time is that it points us to something that is incredible and life-changing. The event that "happened" 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem's manger is the game changer for the things "happening" in our lives this very moment. In fact, God longs for us to understand our life circumstances with Him at the center of it all.

In It, Not of It iconWe are jumping into the meaning and implications of Jesus' description of His followers as people who "live in the world" but are "not of the world." So which are we? Are we citizens, pilgrims, or are we both? This series is designed to help Christians navigate the changing times and values of our nation and world, while giving some foundation to be citizens of two different kingdoms.

 



 

Jesus Says IconWe're looking at a handful of commands that Jesus gave His followers that guided the church for its first 300 years while it was without the Bible. These few things that Jesus said are radical, unnatural, and seemingly unrealistic. However, the early church conquered the Roman Empire by actually living out these commands.

The Helper LogoThroughout the Bible, He appears as wind, smoke, fire, and a dove. He appears and disappears in the Old Testament, and He takes up a power-producing residence inside of people in the New Testament. But what does the Holy Spirit look like today? What does His presence mean for your daily life? This series explores the "Who" and "What" of this Spirit who lives in Christ-followers.

Game Plan LogoLeft unaddressed there are a few enemies in life that keep us in the “two steps forward and three steps back” rhythm. What we need is a game plan; better yet, we need God’s game plan for defeating these strong opponents. In this 4-part series, Game Plan, Mack delves into God’s perspective on winning against these four beatable foes.

He Came LogoIt’s the most wonderful time of the year: gift giving, decorations, celebrations, feasts, good deeds and more. Wonder why. Of course we know Jesus is the reason for the season, but digging a little deeper, Why did God come to the earth? And why did He do it the way He did? This four-part series explores the back-story of the birth of Christ to gives critical insight to living for Christ.



Witness Logo“You will be My witnesses…” were the final words of Jesus to His followers as He ascended into heaven. That’s it! That’s our job, complete with job description: to simply tell what we have experienced in order to build bridges between people and God. When we are His “witnesses,” His power transforms everything – and everybody!
 



Re:Launch IconWhat if you could reignite or even start over in your relationship with God? Or maybe you’re ready to take the first step or the next step to a deeper faith with Him. Where would you start? How can it happen? Join us for this 4-part series that offers some answers to these critical questions.
 



 

OrdinaryPeople IconMen and Women. God used both in the pages of Scripture to do extraordinary things. They, like we, experienced the highs and lows, success and failures, and occasional circumstances that made them question why God would ever want to use them in the first place. But none of these shortcomings prevented Him from doing incredible things IN their lives and THROUGH them. He desires to do the same through us. Join us for this six-part series to explore how God can do the extraordinary through you.

Go and Make IconTwo thousand years ago, God used a small gathering of unlikely and uncertain people to launch the greatest movement in history – the Church. The instructions for their mission were to “go and make disciples.”  The movement and the mission are still alive, and the instructions are the same. Join us for this six-part series that challenges today’s church to follow the lead of these first Christians to make the good news known in our communities and the world.

Live Thanks, Give Thanks Icon As we approach the Thanksgiving season, we all have so much for which to be grateful.

It’s not difficult to even equate the “feelings” with a religious experience, after all, we were “in church.” In this message, Pastor Mack examines what James described as “fooling ourselves” if we think it is enough to merely hear the word but not do it.
