STREET SMARTS

A Study in the Book of Proverbs

6/2/2019 - 6/30/2019

Every day we're exposed to a multitude of signs telling us what to do - turn here, try this, buy that. Knowing the difference between good advise and what will lead us down

the wrong path takes wisdom.

Join us for our new study in Proverbs as we discuss how we can use street smarts to make sure we're heading in the right directions

Straight Talk on Wisdom

Pastor Mike Cooper

Sunday, June 02, 2019

Proverbs has little nuggets, truths, about many of the things that we face in life. And what’s incredible about this is it was written about 3,000-4,000 years ago, and amazingly all the principles found in this book still apply to our lives today! But it’s important to note is that it’s called the Book of Proverbs, not the Book of Promises. Meaning that a proverb is a phrase or saying that’s generally true about life. It’s not a promise, but when you look at the course of life, it’s generally true. In this powerful message, you’ll discover how to gain wisdom, trust the Lord and start with God. That's the starting point in becoming wise.

Straight Talk on Work

Pastor Mike Cooper & Rob Wright

Sunday, June 09, 2019

A recent report showed that 80% of us are dissatisfied with our jobs and careers. Only 20% of Americans said that they actually enjoy their jobs and their boss. Eight out of ten people, when asked, said they hate their jobs. Are we okay with that? Is God okay with that? If not, how can we change that? In this insightful message, we’ll take a look at the Book of Proverbs. Believe it or not, it has a lot to say about our jobs and our careers, and it gives us insight and godly wisdom on how we can be wiser with our work.

Straight Talk on Our Words

Pastor Mike Cooper

Sunday, June 16, 2019

Words can be a powerful tool. The right word at the right time can be life to us. However, the word at the wrong time could mean death. Words can build up and words can tear down. And when it comes to words, why is it that we never forget the hurtful words that were said about us, but we so easily forget encouraging words said to us? In this powerful message, you’ll discover that instead of just giving God our tongues, we need to realize that God can't control our tongue until we first give Him control of our entire life.

Straight Talk on Friendship

Pastor Danny Torres

Sunday, June 23, 2019

Friends are super important, aren’t they? Where would we be in life without friends? While certain friendships can be extremely messy and difficult to navigate at times, the good outweighs the bad. And we would even say friends are a necessity of life. We were intrinsically designed by God for relationship. We were never designed by God to live a life in isolation. Yet, the sad reality of living in a place like NYC is that you can be surrounded by so many people and yet feel so alone. In this insightful message, you’ll discover how to become a God-honoring friend and how to honor God with your friendships.

Straight Talk on Beauty

Pastor Mike & Danielle Cooper

Sunday, June 30, 2019

The final chapter of Proverbs, which was written by King Lemuel primarily talks about women – a woman of noble and godly character. It might seem like it’s geared only to women, but this applies to men too. King Lemuel understood that true love runs deeper than attraction and chemistry. Charm is deceptive. That means there’s more to life than popularity or impressing others. It’s not about personality. There’s something more. Beauty does not last. If you look for self-worth in how you look, you will always be insecure and frustrated. Because outward beauty fades. In this insightful message, you’ll discover Biblical ways of looking past the facade and becoming the right person God intended you to be.
