Welcome to Worship

February 21, 2021

We’re so glad you’re here. Whether you are joining us in-person or online we are excited to spend the morning with you.

What if one of our biggest issues in following Jesus in a post Christian culture was not that we took his teachings too seriously but that we haven’t taken them seriously enough? Jesus clearly describes how to follow him and live in the kingdom of God in his Sermon on the Mount. As our culture continues to drive people to extreme divisions we need to get back to the foundation of Jesus teaching and his call to practice a completely different way to live.

Join us for these timely and crucial messages in our sermon series “Heart Beats” as we give ourselves to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount February 7 through March 28. Let’s become part of the answer to the Lord’s Prayer…”Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”


Today’s Message from Stan

Heart Beats: From Lust to Love

Matthew 5:27-32

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Divorce
31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’[b] 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
