True Wealth // Money Talks pt. 4 // Pastor John Hill

November 28, 2021

Do you spend your life trying to GET rich or trying to BE rich? It’s a one-word difference, but it is a life-altering word. For so many of us, money has a crippling effect on our decisions, our relationships, and our identity. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In part 4 of our series Money Talks, Pastor John unpacks the story of the Rich Young Ruler in Luke 18. It’s a convicting and sad story of what happens when we put all of our hope in the wrong thing. Check out this message as Pastor John offers hope and encouragement to change your mindset from trying to GET rich to trying to BE rich!

 

// True wealth is not measured by how much money you have, but how much money has you. //

HONESTY // Money Talks pt. 3 // Pastor Steve Garcia

HONESTY // Money Talks pt. 3 // Pastor Steve Garcia

November 21, 2021

How would you feel if your pastor wore $4000 sneakers?

Would you think, “wow, God must be really blessing them for their faithfulness and it makes me want to be more faithful!” or would you be thinking, “wow, what a crooked hypocrite. A real pastor would only buy shoes from Payless.” In this message, Pastor Steve unpacks the value of HONESTY in how we spend our money in the third part of a message series called: MONEY TALKS. Pastor Steve challenges the way we view our money through God’s Word and gives us 3 subtle signs that we love money and then an action step of how to love money less.

Jesus said: You can’t serve both God and money.

PRIORITY // Money Talks pt. 2 // Pastor Steve Garcia

PRIORITY // Money Talks pt. 2 // Pastor Steve Garcia

November 14, 2021

When it comes to money, so many of us have placed so many things ahead of God. We’ve put ourselves first, we’ve put our feelings first, we’ve put our fears first. But the reality is that Jesus wants to hold that first place in our lives. In this message, Pastor Steve unpacks the value of PRIORITY in part 2 of the message series: MONEY TALKS. In this message, we look back to the Old Testament at how the Israelites kept God first in their giving and how God’s blessing would follow. And the challenge is the same for us today: if we can trust Jesus with our lives, the question is: can we trust Him with our cash?

 

/// We will be blessed if we bring God our first and our best ///

Responsibility // MONEY TALKS pt. 1 // Pastor Steve Garcia

Responsibility // MONEY TALKS pt. 1 // Pastor Steve Garcia

November 7, 2021


Did you know that the Bible talks about money over 2,000 times? Jesus knew what stranglehold money holds on all of our hearts. Money often stood in the way of something Jesus talked about the most - and that was faith. In this message, Pastor Steve unpacks the question: “Whose responsibility is it to give to God’s work?” Maybe you are thinking it’s someone who is wealthier than you, or Godly, or steady. But what if God is calling us ALL to be responsible to invest in the things that last?

// Jesus wants us to use our money for His works…not just for our wants //

SAMSON’S FINALE // FLEX pt. 5 // Pastor Anthony

Maybe you are flirting with the idea of stepping outside of God’s best for your life…Maybe you are deep in the trenches of destructive decisions.

Either way, a COMEBACK is possible.

In part 5 of our series called FLEX, we are looking at the final chapter of Samson’s life. It is a tragedy that didn’t have to end the way that it did. And God wants us to learn from Samson’s life that His purposes will prevail, but we get to choose whether it happens with bruises or with blessing. Pastor Anthony Riley walks us through Samson’s finale and gives us 3 important things we need to know if we want a COMEBACK in our lives.

Fall of Samson // FLEX part 4 // Pastor Steve Garcia

Fall of Samson // FLEX part 4 // Pastor Steve Garcia

October 25, 2021

“It will be different this time.”

“I can handle it.”

“The rules don’t apply to me.”

 

These are the words of someone who is heading quickly down a hill toward destruction. There are three choices you can make heading down this hill. In part 4 of FLEX, Pastor Steve shares about those 3 choices as he unpacks the tragic saga of Samson’s fall. Samson, who had incredible physical strength, but did not have the strength to control himself…And it cost him greatly. Every single one of us is capable of destroying our own lives. The bad news is, sin makes strong people weak. The good news is Jesus makes weak people strong. Check out this message to discover through the life of Samson, the  path to life, not the path to destruction.

Revenge of Samson // FLEX pt. 3 // Pastor Steve Garcia

Revenge of Samson // FLEX pt. 3 // Pastor Steve Garcia

October 19, 2021

“If you hurt me, I get to hurt you back - now we’re even.” Does this sound familiar? 

There are two problems with revenge: 

The first is we think revenge will make us feel better // We won’t. 

The second is we think revenge will end the conflict // It won’t. 

In this 3rd message in the series FLEX about the life of Samson, Pastor Steve unpacks how Samson fell into the trap of revenge and how we can often find ourselves falling into the same trap. What does the Bible say about how to handle someone who wrongs us? Check out this message as we see how the life of Samson is a warning siren for our lives and how God wants us to cry out to Him even from our darkest and most desperate places.

Marriage of Samson // FLEX part 2 // Pastor Steve Garcia

Marriage of Samson // FLEX part 2 // Pastor Steve Garcia

October 10, 2021

Have you ever gotten to a place in your life where you asked yourself: “How did I get here?” 

Maybe you found yourself stuck in a dead-end relationship. Or at the rock bottom of addiction. Or at a place where your credit card bill is demanding way more than what your bank account can provide. For many of us, we allow the undercurrent of this world to pull us far from the place we want to be and are headed for a certain disaster. In this message, Pastor Steve unpacks part 2 of the life of Samson based on Judges 14.  He also shares 3 lies that we tell ourselves that can lead to destruction.

Destruction is often the end result of SMALL STEPS we take away from God.

Samson’s Origin Story // FLEX part 1 // Pastor Steve Garcia

What are you facing in your life that feels impossible? What is something you are waiting on that feels like it’s never going to happen? What addictions, negative thoughts, or toxic people are you trying to fight in your own power? In part 1 of this message series, FLEX, Pastor Steve Garcia unpacks the origin story of Samson from Judges 13, a story that actually begins before he is ever even born. Samson’s story begins with parents who have to fight the odds and trust in a God who is promising a big and hopeful future in the face of a barren and hopeless present.
