Pastor Phil Perry

Studies About Jesus
Fully God, Fully Obedient

One of the more difficult things to understand is Jesus being fully God, with all of His rights, authority and responsibility, yet we see Him yielding to the Father's will. Why does Jesus say in the garden, 'Not my will, but yours be done?' What can we learn about God's love for us and our need for submissive obedience to Him? How does this affect our relationships here on Earth with one another?

Pastor Phil Perry

Studies About Jesus
Preincarnate Creator

We are going to turn our attention to thinking about who Jesus is over the next 6 weeks. He is what holds us together as a church, the very source of our unity. If we want to be the kind of church God intends for us to be, we must have an accurate understanding of who Jesus is. We will begin by considering what He did before coming to Earth as a baby.

The 5 Purposes of the Church
Fellowship

The 5th foundation block for the purpose of the church is fellowship. We usually think of fellowship and food; but it is much more than simply sharing a meal together. Fellowship of course is in our name, and it has been one of our greatest strengths. As we have grown through, our sense of oneness has taken hits at times. Our culture too pulls us apart from one another; even though we are commanded to find union in each other.

Discipleship

Pastor Phil Perry

The 5 Purposes of the Church
Evangelism

As we continue to look at the purposes of the church, evangelism is today's foundation block. Evangelism is a topic that either excites us or scares us to death. Many feel uncomfortable sharing their faith from either fear of rejection or lack of skill. This is an important topic though as it is a command straight from Jesus to us. Do you evangelize?

Pastor Greg Olson

The 5 Purposes of the Church
Ministry

In our 5 week discussion of the 5 purposes of the Church we come to purpose #2; ministry. Pastor Greg reminds us that it's all about Jesus and His radical life, the life we are called to follow.

Pastor Phil Perry

The 5 Purposes of the Church
Worship

We are going to look at the 5 purposes of the church over the next 5 weeks. I think this is of paramount importance because Christianity is at a pivotal point. What does God want of us? What is church all about? We have so many denominations, what helps us to understand how to select the right church? Are we the kind of church that God wants us to be?

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
Fighting the Urge to Join the World

As we wrap up our study on acceptable sins, we come to perhaps the most subtle and difficult to root out sins- worldliness. It is difficult because the evil one has used it effectively to distract us. How has the world impacted you? Do you love it more than you love God?

Missionary Jason Laird

1Samuel 1

Guest Speaker
Spiritual Infertility

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
Why is the Tongue So Potent? Judgementalism, Envy, Jealousy, and Gossip

Why is it that our toungues get us in so much trouble? James says they are like an uncontrolled fire in the forest, and we can all attest to the great damaging our tongues can do. We don't like to speak of these sins, but they are great indeed and need to be confessed and controlled.

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
Lack of Self Control, Irritation and Irritability, and Anger

The issue of living a controled life is usually not considered a sin issue. We enjoy 'freedom' and most feel we have the 'right' to do what we want and be irritated and angry with whatever or whoever gets in our way. As we look at these sins today, ask God to expose the pain we cause in others lives when we are angry and irritated all the time.

Guest Speaker
Where Will Following Jesus Lead Us?

8/29/2010

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
Unthankfulness, Pride and Selfishness

The sins we will look at today are ones that we hold close to the vest. They are extremely difficult for us to see ourselves, and we become very defensive if someone points them out to us. These are the sins where it is all about me, which our culture celebrates. We self-promote and call it good. We are rude and say it is about getting respect. We put others down to build ourselves up. God says it is sinful and wrong.

8/22/2010

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
The Sins of Anxiety, Frustration, Worry and Discontentment

The sins we are going to deal with is our attitudes towards the unhappy circumstances of life. We all face them, and these sins are things we all struggle with. Yet they are reactions we are so used to that we don’t think of them as sins; yet they are! What do you do when life hands you lemons?

8/15/2010

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
Ungodliness

The first specific respectable sin we will deal with is ungodliness. None of us want to consider ourselves as ungodly, after all we are good moral people, sitting in church and trying to be Christians. Yet if we are honest, this is the underlying problem of all ours sins.

Dr. Jerry Vreland

John 7-8

Guest Speaker
Does John 7:53-8:11 belong in our Bible?

Dr. Jerry Vreland argues for the rightful inclusion of John 7:53-8:11 in the Bible; a controversial and historically omitted passage of Scripture.

Pastor Greg Olson

1Samuel 30

Guest Speaker
Letting God Work In Our Lives

Associate Pastor Greg Olson encourages us to allow God to work in our lives; putting our hope and trust in Him.

7/25/2010

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
The Cure for Sin

In our study on respectable sins last week we were reminded that we are Saints and we need to act like it. Our sin, even the ones we tolerate are offensive to God and must be dealt with. God though does not leave us helpless, but provides for us the cure for our sin problem.

7/18/2010

Pastor Phil Perry

Dealing with our Respectable Sins
The Problem of Sin

Our new study is on the sins we find respectable. Not that we encourage each other from participating in them, we just don't discourage them from them. We overlook them as nuisance at best, but certainly not worth fussing about. These include self-pity, unthankfulness, pride/vanity and a critical tongue. Are they really that big a deal? Shouldn’t we focus more on the big things like murder, idolatry and stealing? Am I really that bad?
