VIA CRUCIS, Week 4
In his gospel, Matthew captures what Jesus' followers experienced as they discovered that he HAD INDEED raised from the dead. My favorite part of this message? The response of a whole bunch of people who made the decision to follow Jesus and be baptized. What a way to end to an amazing Easter at CCV!
VIA CRUCIS, Week 4
Everything Jesus endured in the final hours before his death – the torture, the mocking, and ultimately his crucifixion – demonstrates how great God’s love is for us.
VIA CRUCIS, Week 3
Since the beginning of recorded history, whenever one country would conquer another, the new king would parade his army through the streets of the capital city in an awe-inspiring spectacle of power to announce “there’s a new king in charge now!”
VIA CRUCIS, Week 2
In his book The Cost of Discipleship, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, “When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.”
VIA CRUCIS, Week 1
The events that would lead to Jesus’ death started when the religious leaders of the day learned of his teachings about the Sabbath.
AT THE MOVIES, Week 3
AT THE MOVIES, Week 1
God calls each of us to go on a hero’s journey. In week one of At The Movies, we look at the film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and why listening to God’s call is one of the most important decisions we’ll ever make.
GAME CHANGERS, Week 4
The Parable of the Bags of Gold is one of the most well-known illustrations ever used by Jesus. There are two kinds of disciples - ones that on judgment day Jesus will call, “wicked, lazy and worthless…” and ones that will hear the words, “well done, good and faithful servant.” Which one would you rather be?e gospel in its tracks - and it almost succeeded.
GAME CHANGERS, Week 1
This Sunday I talked about how sharing our faith can be challenging. There are some very real barriers that we face when we finally gain enough courage to share our story with someone. I look forward to seeing how God uses your story to create a GAME CHANGING moment in someone else’s life!
For most people, church is a building, or an event that you go to – “I’m going to church today.” In week two of our series Made For More, I lay out the case for church to be WAY more than either of those, and why this is crucial to becoming a better follower of Jesus.
