The Prodigal Son

Sermon Text:Luke 15:1-3, 11-32 Sometimes we do things that hurt those we love the most.  In some situations it can even separate us from our family.  This weekend’s lesson is a story about hurting those we love.  But in a remarkable turn of events, instead of being cut off from the family, a forgiving father welcomes back a wayward family member.

Who Am I?

Go Big or Go Home

Sermon Text: Luke 4:1-13 It was a custom known as “battle by champion.” Two opposing armies would send out their best warrior to fight each other. We’ve reserved your ringside seat for the ultimate “battle by champion.” In one corner the demons have their champion … Satan, the enemy of both God and humans.
