God Told Me /// CHURCH TALK pt. 1 /// Pastor Joel Sanchez

July 6, 2021

What does it mean when someone says, “God told them” to do something? Is it an audible voice? A feeling? A message in the sky? In part one of our teaching series, CHURCH TALK, Pastor Joel Sanchez helps unpack how to discern the voice, or will, of God. 

We often talk about the will of God as something that is lost, so we speak about “finding” God’s will as if in some way the will of God was hidden from us or if it was a puzzle that we needed to decipher. Throughout the Bible, we see that God is actually wanting to show us His plan and purpose for our lives.

WORSHIP IN THE CELL /// AGAINST THE ODDS pt. 6 /// Pastor Steve Garcia

How do YOU respond to God when:

  • Pain strikes?
  • Friends betray?
  • Hope seems lost?

In part 6 of the series, AGAINST THE ODDS, Pastor Steve Garcia unpacks a story in the Bible from the book of Acts about two faithful followers of Jesus who believe that a prison cell is the perfect place for a worship service. 

Worship is always the right response /// 

You can chain bodies, but you cannot chain souls!
