Emotionally Healthy Church

Because it's impossible to be spiritually mature, while remainig emotionally immature.

June~July 2024

It’s impossible to be spiritually mature, while we remain emotionally immature. We’ve all done it:
-avoided healthy conflict for temporary peace
-ignored or suppressed emotions
-run from what God wants us to work on
-lived a hurried life without boundaries
-repeated the same mistakes over again

Throughout this series we’ll be sharing Biblical principles to experience “beneath the surface” transformation, not just Sunday-only “surface level” changes.

As we experience God’s transformation at work in our lives, I believe that our church as a whole will also experience the same healthy transformation.

Philippians 4
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

I Am

The Name & Nature of God

April~May 2024
In Exodus, God appears to Moses at the burning bush and names himself, “I Am who I Am.”

In the Gospel of John, Jesus draws on this story in Exodus and gives us seven names to call him, seven “I Am” statements.

Throughout this series, we will be looking at who Jesus is through the lens of each “I Am” statement.

Exodus 3:13-14
13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”
14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

I AM E1 - Moses Meets God
I AM E2 - I Am the Bread of Life
I AM E3 - I Am the Light of the World
I AM E4 - I Am the Gate
I AM E5 - I Am the Good Shepherd
I AM E6 - I Am the Resurrection & the Life
I AM E7 - I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life
I AM E8 - I Am the True Vine

Financial Freedom

God’s Guide to Building Wealth Without Stress

February~March 2024

The Bible definitely doesn’t shy away from talking about money. In fact, Scripture includes 2,500 verses about handling money and possessions.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

Those 2,500 verses give us a blueprint and teach us God’s ways of handling money. And here’s the thing about God’s ways of handling money: They work. Every time.

Deciding to follow what the Bible says about money management will mean you’ll never have to worry about money again. And beyond that, you’ll build wealth so you can live out your dreams and be outrageously generous.
