What’s going on in a sermon? How is God’s word at work in us even today? Pastor David explores these questions as we hear from God through 1 Thessalonians 2:13-16.
The Word of God At Work in You
Jesus gave the “Great Commission” to his disciples at the very end of Matthew’s gospel. Pastor David suggests that this is very much like the covenant language that God used in the Old Testament, such as in today’s sermon text, Isaiah 56:1-8.
Believing and Doing – The Great Commission
Jesus offers “living water” to those who believe in him. What does this mean? How does Jesus view real spirituality? Listen to Pastor David’s message on John 7:37-39.
Jesus and Spirituality
Jesus shows us how to live with a holy sense of time: fully present in the moment, never rushed, always sensitive to others’ needs. Listen to Pastor David’s sermon on Luke 8:40-56.
Jesus and Time
Seeing God, eating and drinking with God, entering God’s presence, waiting with God. All these happened to Moses in Exodus 24. How does this relate to our experience of Christian faith today? Listen to Pastor David’s sermon.
Waiting With God
How do you want to grow spiritually in the remainder of 2017? How will you renew (or establish) covenant promises with God in the areas of practice, teaching, and community? Listen to Pastor David’s message* on Deuteronomy 30:15-20, and use this printable PDF to map out your desired growth areas for the rest of this year.

Isaiah 58:1-12 is a powerful passage that calls God’s people to serve the oppressed. What might that look like in today’s world? Will you make serving others a priority for your spiritual growth in 2017? Listen to Pastor David’s sermon here.
Serving the Oppressed
The path of discipleship requires us to imitate God: as Micah 6:1-8 instructs us, to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God. What does this look like in today’s world? Listen to Pastor David’s sermon.
As we begin a new year, Pastor David challenges us to start forming a discipleship plan for 2017. This involves a Personal Discipleship Questionnaire and a reflection on Isaiah 49:1-7, which foretells the coming of the Servant of the Lord, the light of the world.
Following the Light
On Christmas Day, Pastor David preached on Philippians 2:1-11, a beautiful passage that shows the humility of Jesus. How can we learn to imitate him in this way?
