A Prodigal's Party (Easter)

Pastor Mike Cooper

Sunday, April 01, 2018

Easter is a way for us to celebrate freedom. Because Jesus didn’t just die, he rose again! And he came to set us free! So the question is: are you living a free life? Not a life where you’re “free” to do what you want, wherever you want. But a life where you’re not held down by guilt, shame and/or regret. A life where you have nothing to hide. You can be yourself, because you’ve found your freedom in Christ. In this powerful message, you’ll discover proof of God’s great love for you and how to fully live a free life.

Step One: Discovery

How aware are you in the things that are keeping you from experiencing God’s freedom? Or how aware are you in general? What is that one thing you’ve been hiding behind, hoping no one will notice? What area of your life do you need God to heal? To be aware is so important because you cannot conquer that which you cannot confront. And you cannot confront that which cannot first identify. That’s why having awareness is so important in experiencing God’s freedom. It’s often in the disappointments and the devastations that God shows up most. In this insightful message, you’ll discover the process in how God heals us and how you can put your faith and full trust in God.

Step Two: Ownership

Why do so many of us refuse to take ownership of the areas that we need to? Irresponsibility is easiest to see in others but extremely hard to see in ourselves. But to experience freedom, we must look in the mirror and be honest about the areas of your life that you’re refusing to take ownership of. God wants to free and heal us from our past mistakes, but you can never blame your way into freedom. You have to take responsibility. In this enlightening message, you’ll discover what taking responsibility means and how to use God’s unlimited strength and power that’s been ready and available for you.

Step Three: Forgiveness

How do we learn to forgive? Maybe you’re dealing with pain, betrayal, hurt and hatred towards those who have wronged you. Maybe you’re angry at God, maybe at yourself. Life didn’t go as planned, you cannot change it and you have to live unhappily for the rest of your life. Sometimes we greatly underestimate the true cost of living with bitterness and a relational rift. It hangs over us like a dark cloud. Forgiveness isn’t easy, but it’s always possible. In this powerful message, you’ll discover some important decisions when it comes to forgiving others and yourself.

Step Four: Acceptance

Pastor Andy Kalan

Sunday, April 29, 2018

If you were at a party full of strangers, what would you say about yourself? How would you define yourself? We all have these identifying statements but do they really lead us to a true and lasting freedom? No matter what identities you've worn, God has something better for you, something that is secure and cannot be taken away. In this powerful message, you will see how God looks at you - not as someone who is loved because you've proven yourself valuable but as someone who is valuable because you are loved. 

Step Five: Freedom

Pastor Andy Kalan

Sunday, May 06, 2018

None of us want to admit it but we all have issues. We all have been wounded, slighted, overlooked, and unloved. We all have had these moments where we've been hurt and made to feel small with words said that are hard to forget and things done that still get our blood boiling. And if these things are left unresolved, they have the power to control us and hold us in bondage. In this insightful message, you'll see that true freedom comes from dealing with our issues by accepting the offer of healing and rescue that God has for us.
