a banquet for the poor
3/22/2020 - Joe Kimmell - Luke 13:1-19:10
How many have us have been poor? What does being poor even mean? That answer will differ for each of us. Thankfully, Jesus has only one definition: ani. In this sermon, Jesus focuses on what it means to be truly poor in the most rewarding, yet uncomfortable sense of the word. Are you willing to listen to these words with sincere openness to the God who formed you?
Announcing the kingdom with generosity
3/15/2020 - Joe Kimmell - Luke 10:1-12:48
Jesus invites us to consider true generosity that challenges our inmost beings and affects our everyday ways of life. His invitation asks us to consider prayer, money, possessions, anything that puts us face-to-face with our greediness. True generosity is giving freely and freely trusting in God's ability to provide for us. Will you hear this message and openly ask God to help you be free of your greed that you may live with a generous mind and heart?
The New Moses Leading us to freedom
3/1/2020 - Joe Kimmell - Luke 7:1-9:36
Jesus is more than a strong religious leader or a prophet. Rather, Luke portrays Jesus as the new Moses. Moses was chosen by God to go to Egypt and proclaim freedom for God's people. This beautiful comparison is seen in Jesus, from his preaching of hope to the poor to so much more. Will you join us as we examine this Moses-like Jesus to further understand how Jesus is the One Way to hope and freedom?
The Upside down kingdom of Jesus
2/23/2020 - Ron Johnson - Luke 6:17-42
People come to Jesus for many reasons, whether its for healing or to sit at His feet. However, what we expect and what Jesus expects are two different things. Jesus came to bring a message of hope, but that message is not popular in today's culture. In fact, what Jesus brings in this message will be opposite to today's world message and quite contrary to our natural tendencies. Yet, will you rise to His call to be His disciple in His upside down kingdom?
The Launch of the ministry of jesus
2/16/2020 - Joe Kimmell - Luke 3:20-6:16
Today we come to the launch of Jesus’ public ministry. We walk through his baptism, ancestry, temptation, and launch. His opening words as he opens his ministry are from Isaiah the prophet: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives…” Are you needing freedom and release? Join us and consider Jesus.
