What goes around often comes around. The powerless often find themselves in a position of power and the people who hurt us may someday need us. In the moments when we’ve got those people right where we want ’em, what we say will say as much about us as anything else. If our words are stones, will we choose to throw them, or use them to pave the way forward?

Our big fat mouths can be destructive, but they also have the power to build others up. What we say can impact the quality, and even the direction, of the lives of the people around us. How can we use this power for good?

Like a small spark that has the potential to scorch an entire green forest, our tongues are untamable, with the power to control our whole bodies. We have a tool that can be used to build up those around us or tear them down in just a few words. What do we do with that kind of power? We can’t lock it away. But we can, by God’s grace, learn to control it.

We all know what it’s like to be hurt by someone who just couldn’t listen long enough to understand us. Maybe in their attempt to be right, they damaged a relationship that could have been saved with a little patience and curiosity. You’ve probably been on the other side of that coin too. Taking the verbal offense may have won the argument, but you lost relationally. What if we didn’t settle for being right, but tried to make things right instead? The longer we listen, the more we learn, and the better chance we have of protecting ourselves from our own big fat mouths.

Dr. Phil, Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Astrology, Scientology…. And thousands of self-help books all try to tell you that “you can do this on your own” and that you are capable of being a better, faster, stronger, richer, more successful person by following their advice. The problem is, in the end, none of this really works unless you use the original blueprint for success, the Bible. In this message, Young Adult Pastor Wade Henderson gives us God’s view of His Word and what happens if you change it.

Life is full of situations and times when we just don’t understand or know what to do. The Christian has all knowledge and wisdom available to them by seeking God and petitioning Him through prayer, yet we often look away and take the wheel. Community Pastor Tim Seippel in this message will show us how that can lead us into some difficult moments.

God’s Word in every generation has met with a different reception from different people. There are those who despise it and those who delight in it. In this message Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks will show us the danger in one and the reward of the other.

Scripture has a lot to say about the value of community, including the Church. In this message, Student Pastor Josh Mackey will help us see that God’s plan always involves us in community with other believers and why that’s better than being alone.

In order for us to obtain godly wisdom, there are conditions that must be met. Meeting those conditions opens the door to a better understanding of God and His purpose for our lives.

What do you do when you are trying to obey God and life is still not going very well? Is it really worth it to serve and obey God? This message will help us discover that God wants more than obedience – He wants our heart. And when our heart isn’t right with God, everything we do will be wrong.

When we’re trying to rebuild or repair something in our lives, sometimes it can be discouraging. We want to give up because it is difficult, it takes so much time, or we don’t see any progress. In this message we will explore the reasons we give up and why we need to be strong and push through whatever it is that keeps us from rebuilding.

For five decades, rebuilding God’s temple was all the people of Israel thought about. But when it got difficult, for 14 years they put the project on hold. Instead of working on God’s house, they actually started building their own houses, and they built very, very nice houses. They forgot about God’s house, so God raised up the prophet Haggai to call the people back to rebuild the temple for God. In this opening message we’ll talk about what it takes to stop talking and start rebuilding what’s damaged in our lives.

Passage: Mark 8:31
Series: Stand
Jesus knew there would be a sacrificial side to following Him. Following Christ may mean giving up a relationship, or staying in a marriage, or making your financial resources available. And it’s almost like we have to die because we have to give up a part of our lives. In this bonus message we will discover It takes courage to stand aside and put Christ first.
