Who’s Gonna Believe?

Reading: Isaiah 52:7-12 Dear Friends, Nobody’s ever gonna believe this.  The  Christmas story is full of unbelievable moments.  Isaiah 52-53 is filled with unbelievable promises and work of God.  What would 2018 look like if we stood up and said “I’m gonna believe in an unbelievable God.” Peace, Pastor Dave

Simple Peace: Announced

Reading: Isaiah 9:1-7 Dear Friends, Isaiah 9:6 reads like a birth announcement.  The only thing is…the baby hasn’t been born and won’t be … for another 700 years!

Simple Peace: Promised

Reading: Isaiah 54:1-10 Dear Friends, The love of God is more stable than the most stable thing that you can imagine.  It is great.  It is everlasting.  It is rock solid. This love, this foundation, gives us peace.  We know that we will be ok because of the love of God. Peace, Pastor Dave  


Reading: Isaiah 48:17-21 Dear Friends, The truth is super simple.  Obey God and follow Him?  You’ll be in the path of peace.  Don’t obey and don’t follow?  Well – there will be a lack of peace.  Let’s talk about it. Peace, Pastor Dave

The Step Down

Reading: Philippines 2:1-11 Dear Friends, It seems that usually when someone has to “step down” it’s because of some transgression.  That’s what makes Philippians 2 so amazing.  Jesus stepped down from a high position.  And then – he stepped down again.  And then – he stepped down one more time.  Why?  To save you and to give you a reason to […]

Peace, […]
